The Spare is a strike paper formed in response to the 2017 Ontario College faculty strike. It is run by students from Humber College’s Journalism Advanced Diploma program, and was founded so that those students could still publish articles without crossing picket lines.
The Spare is focused on the Humber community, including students, faculty and administrators.
The editors are Kit Kolbegger and Michelle Rowe-Jardine, second year students. Other reporters include Corey Clayton-Lobo and Justice McCormack. Other reporters will be added as they submit work.
Humber College exists on the traditional territory of the Ojibwe Anishnabe people, and many other First Nations lived in the Greater Toronto Area. We recognize that we live, work and study on occupied land.
