BECOME A CRITICAL VOICE ON CAMPUS…

The McGill Daily, in production for over 100 years, is an independent student newspaper at McGill University and is entirely run by students. Currently, we publish in print once weekly, on Mondays, in addition to producing online-only content throughout the week and weekly radio segments for CKUT 90.3 FM.

To get involved, drop by our offices in room B-24 of the Shatner Building and talk to any of our editors, give us a call at (514) 398-6784, or email us at coordinating@mcgilldaily.com or at one of our section-specific addresses. You can also come to section meetings in our office, B-24 Shatner.
Please note that we do not publish in print over the summer.

ABOUT THE DAILY

The McGill Daily, at one time the oldest daily student newspaper in the Commonwealth, has been the training ground for generations of journalists since its inception in 1911.

Currently The Daily is one of the largest student newspapers in Canada and is widely read both on the McGill campus and around Montreal. The Daily began as a broadsheet that focused mainly on sports news. Its evolution has taken many directions. It has taken courageous stands over the years, such as publishing a special issue for International Women’s Day in the late 1970s, that were ridiculed at the time but later embraced by the mainstream media.

The Daily has been independent from student government since 1980. It is published by the Daily Publications Society, an autonomous body whose membership includes all McGill downtown campus undergraduate students except Continuing Education, as well as all graduate students excluding non-residents, graduate medical and graduate dentistry students.

Land Acknowledgement

The Daily’s Editorial Board would like to acknowledge the fact that our office is built on unceded land. We are on the traditional territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka (‘People of the Flint,’ also known as ‘Mohawk’). The Kanien’kehá:ka are one of the five founding Nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and were referred to as the ‘Keepers of the Eastern Door.’ This island that we call Montreal is known as Tiotia:ke in the language of the Kanien’kehá:ka, and has historically served as a meeting place for other Indigenous nations.

Especially at a university which has been so resistant to acknowledging the land it is built on, we recognize that by being silent, we are just as complicit in the ongoing oppression of Indigenous peoples. Alongside other groups on campus, we make this acknowledgement as a first step in fulfilling our responsibility to critically look at colonial histories and their present-day implications as we pay respect to the keepers of the land, and the land itself.
