This year, The Ubyssey was nominated for seven John H. MacDonald awards, which celebrate excellent Canadian student journalism.
We picked up three, thanks to an in-depth investigation of the UBC Okanagan student union by Emma Partridge and David Nixon; a shot of AMS president-elect Alan Ehrenholz’s introductory beer shower; and some stellar social media from the entire Ubyssey team.
