Taking a sigh of relief at the top, I faced the front door of my new unit with pride. Opening the door with confidence, I knew it would be a fresh start. A chapter of my life where I could separate myself from the drama and turmoil of daily social interactions. A place I can call my home. The place was a two bedroom loft with a large living room.

Capitalism is unsustainable when it allows citizens to collapse from the […]

Paralympian sues University of Regina

After waiting 10 years for a trial, Canadian Paralympian Miranda Biletski has taken the University of Regina (U of R) to court for a diving injury in their pool that left her a quadriplegic and wheelchair-bound, according to the CBC. At the time of the accident in 2005, Biletski was a 16-year-old competitive swimmer and water polo player; she had just joined the Regina Piranhas Swim Club, according to the article. Within 37 days of joining the club, she attempted her second shallow dive at a training exercise; she lunged off the blocks to cover more distance. Biletski’s head hit the bottom of the pool, causing a fracture to her spinal cord. She told the CBC that all she remembers […]
