From the Editor
Welcome to Interrobang’s 2021 Diversity & Inclusion issue. This is where our writers meditate on how everyone can make society more inclusive to its marginalized groups.
Obviously, much of our feature content this year has COVID-19 in mind. Reporter Hannah Theodore examines income inequality between those who are able to work from home and those who are not; columnist and nursing student Salma Hussein sheds a light on why Indigenous peoples have been rightfully prioritized for vaccinations. In the same vein, reporter Ian Indiano shares his insights on how the pandemic has impacted immigrants to Canada.
Our news content covers Fanshawe’s Doula Studies program offering drop-in sessions to parents, and an interview with speaker Leroy Hibbert on Black History Month. The latest from Western’s Gazette desk includes a new course in Indigenized astronomy; meanwhile, another group has now called for chancellor Hasenfratz’s resignation.
Opinion, culture and leisure content for this issue includes thoughts on London’s growing rent divide, how the pandemic affects students with eating disorders, and why Tom Brady is the greatest athlete of our generation.
The world is swiftly changing. I look forward to recapping the latest in our next issue, out March 5. Until then, follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and check out our website at theinterrobang.ca.
And so it goes,
