Richview Collegiate Institute has been making a valiant attempt at being an inclusive school: we have a no-discrimination policy, we talk about diversity and discrimination, and we apparently have an all-gender washroom. Despite these practices, though, Richview’s Christian mascot, lack of girls’ sports, and the fact that our all-gender washroom is always locked, just to name a few, continue to hold us back from achieving true inclusivity and equality. Continue reading The Locked All-Gender Washroom

Richview’s 2021 SAC Elections were executed in a fairly entertaining, yet disappointing series of blunders. In fact, Richview may have ended up without SAC this year, if not for the speculated actions of one electoral candidate. Thankfully, though, our school administration was eventually able to run the vote… by Google Form. Continue reading Richview’s Election Mishap

Over the past couple years, music has evolved tremendously. Many amazing artists have produced great projects that have changed the sounds of our modern world. In order to have lasting power in the music industry, you must create something memorable, unique, and something that separates itself from all the other music out there. Today, I will be discussing 5 albums that I have truly loved over the past 5 years. Through many different genres, artists, and styles, these projects have stood out to me, and are certainly worth recognition. Continue reading 5 Albums I’ve Loved From the Last 5 Years
Hello Richview! The student council is looking great this year and with Covid restrictions lifting bit by bit, we might be able to have some great in-person events!

Sitting in French class, watching my teacher explain a lesson on passé composé, I inhale, as any normal person would do after exhaling, and a sharp, nauseating, and even slightly funky stench enters my nostrils. Even through my mask, the smell is unbearable. I quickly glance around, struggling to figure out where exactly it’s coming from… Continue reading Untimely Construction At Richview – A Tale of Suffering
Angel answers the question…
I’m stupid, really stupid. Have you ever liked someone who no matter how poorly they treat you, you still like them? Not like-obsessed. You just can’t stop thinking about them. And they humiliated you, or at least they made you humiliate yourself. And you still love them? How can you? I need to stop, but I can’t.
I cant believe I’m not over something that happened in middle school. Just because it seemed like he liked me? He was a jerk then and an ahole now. And yet here I am, one of the biggest idiots to grace this planet. I don’t know how much more I can take. It’s torcher.
I can barely look at myself without seeing disgust. I don’t know hat happened to me. I don’t know what to do. Continue reading Ask Angel – “…I’m stupid, really stupid.”

We’ve distilled feminism into a shell of what it was supposed to be. Us applauding men and validating their fake feminism is part of the process of making feminism more “digestible” and more “palatable”. By celebrating the bare minimum, we’re reinforcing the notion that the only requirement of being a feminist is saying that you believe in equality.

While walking through the aisles of Shoppers Drug Mart, I spotted the price differences between identical products for men and women. The prices for women’s products were higher than the ones for men. The Gillette razor for men was priced 2 dollars more than the Gillette Venus razor for women, both razors had the same features, the same number of cartridges, yet the Gillette Venus was priced higher. Now, I hadn’t only noticed this pattern in the price for the razors, but for the deodorants, shampoos, and all the other products that had a version for men and women. I had wondered why I hadn’t noticed this difference before, and why no one seemed to be questioning the price difference? It isn’t fair that a woman has to pay a higher price for the same products.
