The Future of Vanier; What to expect concerning Bill 96’s Rampage

Ever since Bill 96 was adopted, back in May 2022, the topic has been a source of concern for many Quebeckers. The matter has brought a lot of uncertainty to the halls of anglophone CEGEPS across the province. For the past months, Vanier College has been working hard as an advocate for justice in Bill 96’s application. For this month’s VCSA Insider issue we had the pleasure of interviewing the Director General of our school, John McMahon, in hopes of spreading awareness and conveying the facts to our fellow students…

Waltz of Spring

Green pastures tell my friends To come out of their small house, Smell the fresh dew perfume sends, Hear me conduct the waltz of Strauss The clouds have cleared the view For my friends to enjoy the bright spotlight  Where I lead the wind orchestra of green and blue They play and sway to my direction with delight The flower buds enticed by the symphony Their whorls gradually open to hear more of it  Everyone rise to the climax of spring’s harmony A rush of excitement, images of happiness hit…
