Although telling a first-year student who can barely take care of themselves to get a plant may seem odd, there is a simple reason for it—plants have many benefits, and act as more than just cute dorm decorations. This was something that over 50 students learned about at Community Life Service’s (CLS) Green Festival Indoor Plant Workshop, run by the University of Ottawa’s Health Services (UOHS) on March 2.

Although the wide selection makes it inherently difficult to choose just one meal, I opted for Nacho Cartel’s “Nila’s Chicken” and “Cali-Calui” tacos. Nacho Cartel, a food truck located at 200 Wilbrod Street that is only open during the warmer months, normally serves an array of different nachos and tacos, as well as milkshakes, but for this festival they are only serving these two tacos.

The University of Ottawa Liberty Society erected a wall of free speech Feb. 5–6 in response to the U of O’s failing grade on a free expression index released in October. The wall was intended to be an exercise in free speech for all students, but was covered with remarks from the Revolutionary Student Movement (RSM), formerly called the Marxist Students’ Association.
