Farewell, Vanier! – Back to Square One or Two Steps Forward?

So, this is it. This is the end for me—the end of my days here at Vanier. When you start cégep, you’d always picture how the next two years of your life will plan out. Truth is, nothing ever goes according to plan. Things will happen during your time that you ain’t have no power over it. That is definitely what happened to me throughout my time here at Vanier. Anyone who knows me knows I had the most challenging time of my life in high school. Coming to Vanier…

Everything wrong with Bill 96 Voices 

Everything wrong with Bill 96

If you know me, you’d know that there is nothing more important for me than to protect the linguistic minorities of Canada. Whether they are Franco-Ontarians, Acadians or Anglo-Quebecers, no one from coast to coast should be punished for speaking one of the official languages of our country. That is why I am opposed to Bill 96 or any other forms of legislation that pretends to protect the French language in Quebec. Let’s get the facts straight. I am not opposed to Bill 96 for wanting to take action to…

French Presidential Election – The start of Macron’s challenging days

On Sunday, April 24, incumbent French president Emmanuel Macron won re-election. However, Macron’s victory may be short-lived as he faces a divided population and a hostile political landscape. Background Emmanuel Macron was first elected as president of France in 2017 with more than two-thirds of the votes, defeating Marine Le Pen of the far-right party Rassemblement Nationale (RN). Macron’s party, La République en Marche (LREM), won a majority of seats in the French legislative election, giving him control of both the executive and legislative branches. The centrist and pro-European head…

Make It Happen! – Those were the words of Avery Rueb that chimed through the ears of two students who aspired to bring other students together in a social-distanced society. From chanting their motto to sketching designs and prototypes; meeting with academic and non-academic staff for feedback, the vacillating nature of their project made ‘giving up’ palatable. Some may call it a coincidence and while others call it fate. But whatever it was, it brought two students together. They were the only attendees of the online make-up session for LaunchBox…

Pondering Arts 


I wonder what I look like Through your eyes Am I caught in your stare As often as I’d like Do I remind you  Of someone familiar Does my voice Remind you of a song Would you like to listen To my stories Or would you rather I write about you There’s a feeling  Hanging over me Like I should Get to know us But I’m afraid if I ask ‘‘What do you think of me?’’ The answer will be ‘‘I don’t.’’ By Alexia Côté
