Ottawa’s annual Terry Fox Run, which was held at Carleton’s Anniversary Park on Sept. 17, raised $235,000 for cancer research, surpassing its initial goal of $200,000.

Victoria Christie explores the contentious issue of cultural appropriation in fashion and how it’s impacting Indigenous communities in Canada.
