“Part-time students should not be punished for making the decisions necessary for themselves and their families to survive and to have a chance at a better future.”

“We do not need more forms of unsafe extreme energy extraction such as hydraulic fracturing, or ineffective distractions such as carbon capture and storage. What we need are real climate and economic solutions, green economies, and renewable energy.”

Institutional discrimination at its best: The ‘old boys club’ reviews fracking
MUN’s Grenfell Campus in Corner Brook unveiled the province’s first industrial composter yesterday to great fanfare, reports The Western Star. The project is a partnership of the Multi Materials Stewardship Board, Grenfell Campus, and College of the North Atlantic; waste from the two educational institutions will be fed into the machine, diverting about 20 per cent of their total waste from the local landfill. The compost produced by the machine will be used in Grenfell’s community and ornamental gardens. A 20% waste reduction? How long until the Avalon has its own composting system set up again?
