Dunno if I'm being too fussy but I'm going to nitpick one of "Whatever's" teen columnists again. The fault may be in the editing of her article rather than in the way she wrote it, but since she's the editor as well......
The column was about keeping youth in Moncton and NB in general. She referred to the university choices as sufficient but it really sounded like she meant in
She wrote how UdeM was good if you were studying in French and then wrote about how Crandall was for Christians (aside from their homophobic policies, apparently they fined someone for not attending chapel as often as they'd like) and went on to say if there was another English university people would rethink leaving. So she is definitely saying what we have is not
It's a simple mistake but it means the opposite of what she was saying. The lead writer and editor ought to do better; it's really not the first time.
Moving on she mentioned the planned events centre at Highfield Sq. As someone who lived "downtown" she felt it should be there rather than at Highfield Sq.
What, Highfield Sq isn't Downtown? It's just 2 minutes walk from the subway.
Even if technically it doesn't count as Downtown, she wrote that having it downtown rather than Highfield Sq would make it more likely she'd return to Moncton after Uni. Seriously? That two minutes would make all the differnce in such a decision?
But she also referred to the advantages of having an events centre. "It will make our Downtown bigger" she said. Wouldn't "bigger" encompass moving outward by 200 metres? A distance she feels is too far?
