Letters from the Editors

If you spend a lot of time complaining about McGill for its lack of or poorly run programs and student life, you would be a hypocrite to not vote YES for the Tribune's independence. Okay, hypocrite's a bit strong. But the point is, I spent a lot of time complaining about just that over my time at McGill.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Fostering open dialogue.

Re: "Why Gaza Remembrance Week misses the point" by Adam Winer (26.1.10) Although Adam Winer's commentary concludes on a somewhat optimistic note - calling on us to have open dialogue and broaden our knowledge about the Arab-Israeli conflict - the manner in which he wrote his op-ed makes clear that he has yet to follow this important piece of advice.

RIGHT MINDED: Haiti’s real problem

On February 9, Max Silverman wrote an article that viewed the aid effort in Haiti through the prism of Naomi Klein's "shock doctrine" theory. The shock doctrine posits a theory of "disaster capitalism," where practitioners take advantage of emergency or upheaval to force free market reforms onto a rebuilding country.
