People and places: Sheila Coles

That one friendly voice in the morning CBC Morning Edition host Sheila Coles spoke with the Carillon about her time behind the microphone and getting bitten by the travel bug. What’s the secret to hosting a radio show well? Coffee (laughs). Lots of coffee.

With love

I was reading some Amy Hempel stories when I was trying to figure out an inspiration for this story. I came across one in my collection of her shorts that really piqued my interest called The Harvest, and it gave me the idea of an old woman who blames her problems on others due to her age.

First, I was a news writer with the ...

by Ethan Butterfield – Contributor Hey everyone! This week I’m reviewing Call of Duty: Black Ops 3… because why not? Sure, every other reviewer is doing it, so why not be like one of the mindless drones and throw my hat into the ring. I have to say though, despite harsh criticism from the gaming community about how Call of Duty is the same game every year, this game pulled it off. It made everyone’s ...

People and places

Journalist and Australian ex-pat, Emma Graney Australian-born Leader-Post journalist Emma Graney caught up with the Carillon to talk about her life and career in the media.   If someone told you when you were growing up in Australia that you’d someday be working as a journalist in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, would you have believed them?

People & places: Erin Weir, MP

Erin Weir, MP’s first Carillon interview In the midst of his first session in the House of Commons, Regina Lewvan MP Erin Weir caught up with the Carillon to talk about life in politics.   The profession of politics – and being a politician – has a negative connotation with a lot of people.
