But wait, democracy isn’t over just yet! Continuous VFM is continuous!

Rabi Sun, the man behind the much-beloved Portraits of UBC project, and the Just Shoot Me blog was kind enough to help out UBC Insiders with some debate photography last week. This is a huge step up for us, as it means not only are the pictures in focus (something we struggle with), they are [...]
This is an opinion piece by Bowinn Ma, EUS President 2007-2008; AMS Councilor 2006-2008; Former Hack, less so now. [Cup of salt: I know both Chu and Frederick, but only in passing. I have spoken to both but have never spent any extended amount of time with either.] Let me be clear: This is not [...]
