A big thank you to all who voted for us in The Montreal Mirror ’s annual Best of Montreal reader poll. We ranked #5 in the top ten, after The Gazette, La Presse, Le Devoir and The Mirror itself. Are we proud to be the highest-ranked free newspaper besides the one that runs the contest? Damn right we are.
So thanks to all the lovers (and haters) that made this volume the non-stop rollercoaster that it was, and for all the writers, photographers, designers and editors that made it possible. We’re going to push ourselves to make the next volume even stronger. We’ll (hopefully) see you at the top this time next year.

And a big shout-out to The McGill Daily for coming in at #9!
A few hundred mediaphiles joined up in the belly of Concordia’s Hall Building on the evening of April 19 in the D.B. Clark Theatre to talk about the past, present, and most importantly, the future of journalism.
The panel discussion marked the opening night of Journalism Strategies, a three-day conference on the state of media in Canada, and the state of media democracy with the hopes of re-imagining the future of Canadian journalism.
The discussion was moderated by CBC Daybreak host Mike Finnerty, and featured Tony Burman of Al Jazeera English, former Radio-Canada journalist Dominique Payette, Kai Nagata of The Tyee and founding publisher of rabble.ca Judy Rebick.
Though the discussion was long and touched on many points, we’ve chosen just a couple minutes of discussion that hit close to home.
Herein both Rebick and Nagata discuss the current student strike in Quebec, and how Canadian Anglophone media has handled the issue.
We’ve elected masthead for volume 33, so be ready for another year of student politics, city news, arts content and sports coverage. If you’re interested in joining our team for the 2012-2013 school year, give us a shout at email@example.com.
All of The Link’s Editorial positions will be open!
