Editors' Note

You’re always going to bring the baggage along with you from your past experiences. So we’re not treating this year of The Watch as a clean slate. There’s a reason why two executive members from last year are back. We know we can do better. We have some cleaning up to do: of The Watch, […]

Editors' Note

Since we took over last April, King’s has a new president, a new canteen and new budget cuts. And through all of that, we’ve taken a different direction with The Watch. If you reread our editors’ note from last April, it sums up our mandate: to serve the King’s community. And what we gave you […]

Editor's Note

Appropriate for February, isn’t it? It’s true, we’re quite clever. Though this issue doesn’t offer you any love or sex tips (how could we top last year’s, ahem, blow-by-blow courtesy of Genny and Rory?) we do take a look at student action. Whether you were out in the street dancing and chanting or following our […]

Proposed referenda shall be publicized with a public forum, moderated by the CRO with one speaker for and one speaker against the issue at hand. This forum shall be held on King’s College Campus […]

Editorial: Our Last Chip

Saying no is what put student voices on the committee to renegotiate Sodexo’s contract in 2013. Our boycott was the students’ leverage. If students approve this vote, it’s done. The period of change is over.

Letters to the Editor

On that Letter I am dismayed by the Watch’s decision to run a rebuke by Ms. Kim Kierans in the October issue without any formal editorial response. This, to me, constitutes passing the buck. By allowing someone—indeed, a representative from one of the parties involved in the story itself—to criticize a contributor unfiltered is a […]

Editor's Note

It’s been a heavy news semester. We at the Watch certainly haven’t wanted for material. The halls of King’s have been buzzing with it. And we’ve got more for you: student protests, an independent student radio station, and a rugby team holding its own in the university league. And King’s students never seem to get […]
