November 2018 Issue

Dear Reader,

It is with great pride that we introduce the first issue of Inquire Publication for the 2018-19 school year. Since our last issue we have said goodbye to several long-term members and welcomed many more, especially on our journalism team. New and old, we have come together to combat ignorance and apathy and strive for meaningful change.

Since we broke for the summer we have seen the election of Doug Ford, watched skepticism about the Trudeau government rise in the face of international and environmental controversy, and born witness to the slow burn of Trumpism. We have questioned education both on a theoretical level and through the very tangible effects of the Ford government’s sex-ed curriculum, and questioned our own futures as journalists and global citizens following the murder of Jamal Khoshoggi.

We hope you enjoy this month’s inquiries and, as always are eager to hear your feedback and views on these issues. Remember, these articles represent the interests of and questions asked by students from across the Queen’s campus. If you have a thought, a question, or an opinion, don’t hesitate to reach out.

What do you inquire about?

Jessica Walsh and Ami Trivedi, Co-Presidents.
