Western student paper loses independence over spoof issue

Maclean’s goes in depth with the latest on the Western Gazette, the student newspaper from the University of Western Ontario. The university’s administration passed a motion that gives them the power to prevent on-campus distribution and withhold student fees from Canada’s oldest student newspaper. The paper was in the news after its annual spoof issue caused controversy for its satire of feminism and rape. Lots of comments from the Maclean’s 50.
