Letter to the editor: Clarifying McGill’s Policy Against Sexual Violence

I write to respond to two pieces that ran in The McGill Tribune on Oct. 17: "Editorial: On sexual violence reform, it's McGill's turn" and Caitlin Kindig's news piece, "Our Turn action plan gives McGill's Sexual Violence Policy a C- grade." Both articles contain misunderstandings or incomplete information about McGill's Policy against Sexual Violence.

SSMU Vice-President Finance Arisha Khan suspended from the SSMU Board of Directors

The Board approved a motion mandating SSMU General Manager Ryan Hughes to investigate alleged leaks to student media during their Sept. 24 meeting. At the Oct. 16 meeting, Hughes presented the findings of his investigation to the Board.

Flashback: ‘Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story’ is mandatory viewing for McGill students, administrators alike

Mental health issues, and eating disorders in particular—being consistently gendered feminine—are exacerbated, downplayed, and ignored by patriarchal institutions.

Conversely, I present to you: Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story (1987), a movie that refuses to allow marginalized voices to… Keep Reading

Dealing with tragedy thousands of kilometres away

Tupperware containers in hand, two Mexican McGill students implored hundreds of strangers in Leacock 132 to spare some change to support relief efforts in the wake of the Sept. 19 earthquake in Mexico City. Living away from home is not easy, let alone watching tragedy strike from afar.  Challenging routine tasks, such as schoolwork, become… Keep Reading

Phishing scam plagues McGill student inboxes

Since the summer, students have reported receiving ‘phished’ messages in their McGill emails. ‘Phishing’ is the fraudulent practice of impersonating a credible source and sending emails requesting the reader to hand over personal details. The emails had subject lines such as “Verify Your Email!,” or “Important Alert from McGill University Admin” and contained fraudulent links… Keep Reading
