Letter from the Editor

Joel Voth | Editor-in-Chief

The month of October has been flying past. As I watch the fall season wind down and the rumours of a brutal winter around the corner, I begin to wonder what happened to my favorite season: the time spent on the land harvesting crops, the beautiful leaves, and the cool weather. In a whirlwind of busyness, paper writing and studying, I find myself forgetting to pause to watch the change which happens all too quickly. The leaves are so very colorful, the air is crisp and cold, warm meals are cooked to provide energy and comfort. Shorts are replaced by pants and now a coat hangs near my door — Fall is coming to a close.

In this month’s publication, we tried to have somewhat of a theme — thankfulness and gratitude for what we have. One article in this issue is a great commentary written on the origins of Thanksgiving in Canada and why we celebrate this holiday — and another is a fun perspective of what a turkey experiences in a day on a Canadian turkey farm.  We also had one of our reporters go into Hamilton and report on the Art Gallery of Hamilton and their current exhibit Are you Experienced? Take a look at our album review for this month as we get a glimpse into Stevens Sufjan’s album Carrie & Lowell.  For all you gadget fans, take a look at our tech article for this month and find out if Apple has in fact made a big mistake. Read an important article which outlines the important facts and clears the rumors about what happened on October third to a group of Redeemer males.

Finally, we always are open and excited to see students getting involved with the Crown. If you enjoy writing and have an article, whether it is Redeemer-related or just something you’d like to share, feel free to send it in to us.

 May God bless you all as we enter into the second half of our fall semester.
