The Need For Strict and Aggressive Library Fines

Justice is always uncomfortable for criminals. However, to keep a society of order, it is necessary that this justice is carried out with courage. When justice seems fragile, uncertain, and self-questioning, the criminal wins. They no longer have to fear. If you are looking for an example, our library is an excellent illustration of an institution that has become incapable of executing justice.   Recently, I have been doing research on Dostoevsky and have run into trouble finding an essential book. The Cambridge Introduction to Russian Literature contains many important…

The Castrating Call of Library Fines

There are times when the exercise of authority becomes excessive, terrifying, and incomprehensible. I have come face to face with this authority. I have been charged $13.50 for a computer returned an hour and thirty minutes past due. There is, of course, nothing wrong with library fines. In a school with our scope, it is difficult to expect every item could be returned promptly without a disincentive against delays. In the absence of a disincentive, there is the frustration of constant scarcity, of empty shelves. However, having justified a fine,…

Sports In Montreal

Since 1909, sports have become a great part of Montreal’s heritage. It all began with the Montreal Canadiens in the National Hockey League (NHL), followed by the founding of the Montreal Expos in 1969. What followed was the implementation of an abundance of centres and parks for various sports: the Taz for skateboarding, the Saputo Stadium for soccer, race tracks for the Grand Prix and F1 races, Jarry Park for basketball, tennis, and baseball, and so many more.   The urban impact of sports in Montreal has only grown over…

Montreal’s Air Pollution News 

Montreal’s Air Pollution

Is Montreal’s air pollution truly a problem? The Service De L’Environnement’s most recent Montreal air quality report, which came out in 2017, indicates that the city’s air quality is most often, medically insignificant or tolerable by the general population. Does the lack of a direct perceivable effect on the population’s health mean there isn’t a problem? No, it does not. And while there isn’t an immediate consequence, the city’s public health agency states that about 1500 citizens die yearly of complications because of our air pollution. Canada continues to warm…

The Climate Fight: Despairs and Hopes

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing humanity. Our global temperature is rising as we continue to emit large quantities of greenhouse gases. Our planet’s resources are being overexploited and depleted. Our wildlife is dying, and our ecosystem is being polluted. Over the course of a couple of centuries, human activity has caused irreparable damages to our planet, and it will continue to get worse if society doesn’t act to change its ways.   Governments around the world are being called to join the fight against climate change…

Her Gift to You

She used strands of her golden hair As thread, To sew the pieces of her heart Back together, Her flesh as a blanket, To keep him warm, And her bones As reinforcements, To keep the house From crumbling down. Yet, as he holds the remains Of her body, Dearly, Like an heirloom Her father passed down to him, He wonders, “Has she always been this small?”   Poem by: Fin

Innocens

Un cœur sombrant vers l’enfer a accès au paradis Un cerveau se perdant dans les plaines ensoleillées croira suivre un sentier droit Ils se meurent Seuls mes yeux survivent Ils te voient déambuler dans la neige Rouge sur blanc Toucher est interdit Vous êtes prié de seulement regarder Tes couleurs prennent mes sens décédés Elles raniment le paysage froid Cachée derrière les flocons qui se déposent silencieusement Je t’admire Je reste immobile Silencieuse Je deviens comme ces flocons qui finissent toujours par se dissiper sur le sol Comme si ne rien…
