Concordia on: Artists or Vandals
This week The Link decided to take to the halls of Concordia to find out what students think about graffiti murals. We asked them whether they view graffiti as a public art form or as an act of vandalism. Here’s what they thought:
Your best friend is un-gracefully draped over a toilet seat while your boyfriend is throwing up in yesterday’s grocery bag.

Breaks in the System
The way that student governance at this school is supposed to work—on paper anyway—makes sense:

Just for Laughs co-founder Gilbert Rozon recently proposed the idea of keeping bars in Montreal’s downtown core open until 6:00 a.m.—three hours later than the current province-wide 3:00 a.m. closing time.
I know two people who were killed by cars in the last two weeks.
Ragin’ On The Road
When I get in my car, rage takes over me—I just can’t help it.
Concordia On: Zombie Apocalypse
With the world economy crumbling, #Occupy protests happening throughout the world and a general depressive trend in world news, we decided to ask students about a more festive topic this week: Halloween.
