  • Student Wants More Info

    I am writing because I am against the fee increase for the student centre. There are several reasons why, but the main one is the secrecy that is surrounding the project.

  • Student Centre History Repeated

    Having read your article last week titled An Affordability Issue: Property CEO [Vol. 31, Iss. 14, Pg. 4] I could not help but notice that Jonathan Wener, who helped promote the proposed student centre at ASFA council, was mentioned in a previous The Link article.

  • Weed Culture Still Budding

    A couple of years ago I was in Amsterdam on April 20 with a buddy from Victoria, B.C. At an establishment called Coffeeshop, Johnny, a clerk, chatted us up, lamenting on the demise of the cannabis cafe in the Netherlands. I told the clerk to not be discouraged.

  • Yes to Student Center

    When most people say that school is a home away from home, they don’t mean the classroom. Seriously, in what way is a classroom similar to a living room, a kitchen or a bedroom? Might they by any chance mean a student centre?

  • Cinema Politica’s Got Beef

    You can imagine that myself and other organizers of Cinema Politica Concordia were quite thrilled to finally see some The Link coverage (Everything on the Table [Vol. 31, Iss. 10, Pg. 06]) of our campus-based, free-for-students, and ongoing documentary film series at Concordia (every Monday night, all are welcome!).

  • Don’t Bottle It Up

    In recent weeks, the students of Concordia have been overlooked and ignored by university administration. Their business-as-usual approach to signing secret and exclusive contracts with major corporations is a practice that has gone on for far too long.

  • CFS Against Pepsi

    We are saddened to see that Pepsi is advertising their Pepsi Refresh Project on Concordia campus despite the opposition voiced by the Concordia Student Union. Pepsi also approached the Dawson Student Union about promoting their project on our campus; however, due to their unethical business practices, we declined.

  • Shout Out From a Shill

    I read with interest the article written by Joel Balsam that appeared in the October 27, 2010, edition of The Link entitled, “TAPthirst, uberculture and QPIRG Dump Hundreds of Plastic Bottles on Campus.” [Editors Note: This is incorrect. The article did not appear in Vol. 31, Issue 11 of The Link but was web-only content on thelinknewspaper.ca.]

  • Co-op Bookstore Salutes You

    I am writing this letter to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to all of you, on behalf of all of us (past and present) at the Concordia Community Solidarity Co-op Bookstore.

  • Canada’s Reputation in Shambles

    Last week, the international community said no to the Harper Conservatives’ bid for a UN Security Council seat. This loss confirms one thing: that Canada is no longer an “honest broker” welcomed by the world, but a country in isolation.
