  • The Ubyssey is the University of British Columbia's official, independent student-run paper and is published every Monday and Thursday. Founded in 1918, The Ubyssey is the largest student-run paper in Western Canada, and the second largest in Canada. Notable writers throughout its history include Pierre Berton, John Turner, Allan Fotheringham, Michael Valpy, Joe Schlesinger, Danny Stoffman, Stephen Scobie, Vaughn Palmer, Bruce Arthur, and Earle Birney. Other notable alumni include cartoonist Arn Saba, journalist and author Katherine Monk, and photographers Jeff Wall and Richard Lam. The Ubyssey is an independent publication and funded by a $6 annual fee which students can opt out from. The staff functions as a collective; current UBC students who have contributed to the paper and attend staff meetings are eligible to become staff members. The staff elects the full-time editors on an annual basis. The Ubyssey Publications Society board and president, who deal chiefly with financial matters and do not play any editorial role, are elected by the general student body annually.
