As we grow older and become more interested in having a place to call our own, it is important to know exactly what you we committing to. CIBC defines a mortgage as, “a loan to a property owner, often to buy property, in which the borrower gives the lender a lien on the property to guarantee repayment. Though it may sound overwhelming, with proper preparation and commitment to making payments toward the loan, mortgages can be the key to owning your dream home.
I have some news for you: your mental health is more important than good grades. This week, I challenge you to do something for yourself. Since you are probably in a very academic mindset, I took some time to think of a few things you could do to help yourself unwind, and forget about your to-do list for a little while.
It’s the scariest time of the year! No- not Halloween, that’s long gone... I mean test time! Stress accompanied by late nights in the library wondering if your education is even worth it often makes you turn to pizza or anything cheap, greasy, and easy to make. However, these foods don’t do anything good for your mood, so here are some easy snacks to lift up your spirits and make you feel like you have some semblance of being an adult.
As the temperature outside continues to drop, our bodies need more and more energy to keep warm while also tending to our daily activities. In other words, this is a great excuse to eat more carbs and, namely, more pasta! That’s why for this issue, I decided to share my delectable recipe for tomato sauce.
yours are lumps of matter that festered,
have gone bad
And we all stood in the empty streets
and cried God, what have you done?
As if our words were shields
and they’d move faster by our tongues.
A legacy in itself.
It is an honor
we share all over the nation
for us to remember your tales.
After being catapulted into commercial success following her 2014 hit, Chandelier, Sia has managed to do what others in her field cannot: uphold an uncompromised standard of privacy and anonymity in the midst of superstardom. After a career spanning nearly two decades, the Australian-born singer reached her first number one on the Hot 100 chart with Cheap Thrills, off of her seventh studio album. With the broadening of her horizons, the singer has further challenged herself by embarking on her current Nostalgic for the Present Tour, mostly featuring songs from her newest album, This Is Acting.
In the early hours of October 16th, my grandparents, their three teenage foster children, my brother, my mother, and myself all loaded into a van. I sat next to my grandfather, serving as the navigator while lazily knitting Christmas apparel. We had a 16 hour drive ahead of us to reach a place with dozens of theaters set and primed for live music; we were going to Branson, Missouri.
Two important films were shown back to back at the Planet in Focus Film Festival in Toronto on October 23rd. Both illustrated contrasting ways in which separate communities on either side of the Indian Ocean are dealing with the impacts of climate change.
I’ve only met Jeff Rosenstock once. It was after PUP’s The Dream is Over release show at the Phoenix. Jeff had played that night (he can often be found opening for great punk acts playing in Toronto) and, in spite of just getting off the stage after an impassioned ensemble encore rendition of ‘El Scorcho’, he was gleefully manning his own merchandise table after the show. It wasn’t that Jeff couldn’t get help with his table, there were plenty of staff helping mince through the dozens of PUP fans clambering for merch; rather, Jeff just sincerely wanted to meet his people.
GEISA is thrilled to be hosting Glendon’s first investment competition!
The loss of Indigenous Languages should be a matter of great public concern in Canada. At least that’s what the Glendon Truth and Reconciliation Declaration on Canada’s Indigenous Language Policy says. The Declaration came out of a language policy course taught last year by Professors Ian Martin and Jean Michel Montsion. Their students hosted a national Colloquium to discuss the problem, and to propose responses to the TRC Commission’s three Calls to Action on Indigenous Language Policy.
Before winter creeps up on us, now is the best time to revel in all the joys of Autumn. Pumpkins, sweaters, hot cocoa, and colourful trees are all around, and what better place to experience that fall atmosphere than by taking a trek to one of Glendon’s hidden gems: The Glendon Forest.

According to typical citizens of the city, Toronto is majestic: that breathtaking skyline, the CN Tower, those soaring skyscrapers, Kensington market, Little Italy, Little Portugal, Chinatown… The list goes on. Rappers are renaming it, films are premiering in it, sports teams keep losing in it. But how do immigrants see the city? For those who fight so hard for a Canadian Work Permit, does Toronto live up to their expectations?
