Welcome back to another edition of our lovely newsletter. Summer is finally here (fingers crossed) and as flowers begin to bloom, so too does the Calgary Journal website with a wide variety of content. Though many of our student journalists are off on summer break, we still have a lot of new content to read and watch.
We have many new and interesting stories up on The Calgary Journal website, including:
