R. v. Sparrow (1990): A Landmark Supreme Court Case

To highlight the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation, it is only appropriate to discuss a landmark case of the Supreme Court relating to Aboriginal law. The importance of R. v. Sparrow (1990) cannot be overstated; it is said to be the first case of the Supreme Court to truly explore the boundaries of the purview of section 35(1) of the repatriated constitution of 1982. In particular, section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982 officially enshrined Aboriginal and treaty rights in Canadian law, and section 35(1) is concerned with “The…

Taylor Swift

“He said the way my blue eyes shined” Was the opening line to her favourite song Boy, it takes me back. “Love Story” used to be our song We danced every time it came on Can’t believe what it could have been I can still see her every time I close my eyes Back to those beautiful summer times But now everything has changed   We used to be so happy and so in love You were the queen that turn me in your king I never thought we were…

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.

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…
