Debate Photos, January 21

I’m a big fan of balancing out coverage of the elections, and while it’s fine and well to analyze soundbites and award points, sometimes it’s necessary to post photos of people bearing facial expressions that only appear between words, and for us to come together as a community in laughing at the people who are [...]

Question Period!

Hey gang! I’m working on the new version of the site, and I’m wondering what you want to see out of it. Final decisions will rest with the editorial board but we’re open to suggestions.

Block Party, in photos.

January 17th: Debate photos and commentary.

One of the things people most frequently mention about UBC Insiders is that the posts are often wordy, and lacking in sass. This should remediate both of those. photos and comments behind the cut (warning, there’s lots!)Ubyssey staff Brandon Adams and Jesse Ferreras, huddling before the debates start.
