Last weekend, five Fulcrum editors took part in a collaboration with the Gee-Gees cheerleading team. We were invited to a cheerleading practice where coach Nailah Taylor and her team taught us basic cheerleading maneuvers. It wasn’t all pretty but fun was had by all — here’s what the different editors had to say about their experiences.

The complex dynamics of the Canada-U.S. bilateral relationship In 1969, former prime minister Pierre Trudeau described the relationship between Canada and the United States in a memorable analogy. “Living next to you is in some ways like sleeping with an elephant. No matter how friendly and even-tempered is the beast, if I can call it …

From the waging of war to the negotiation of peace and the formation of institutions to maintain it, the Fulcrum has witnessed and documented it all since its establishment in 1942.

“It’s been a technological crisis for the last decade or so, and an advertising crisis, and now it’s sort of an existential crisis. If these things don’t exist – if the reporters and the institutions disappear from towns, campuses, cities, provinces – all of a sudden it’s just news darkness.” — Brett Popplewell, journalism professor at Carleton University.
