The Modern Spirit exists as an outlet for humour for the Guelph and Ontario community.
Much of what we post is humour that does not address many of the deeper reasons problems in our society exist.
The Modern Spirit, as an editorial group, believes that Black Lives Matter.
Our posts, while heartening sometimes, are not necessary at this time when Canada and the United States are having National conversations about the way Black and Indigenous people are treated by law enforcement.
We will not be posting from our accounts unless absolutely necessary before August 1st 2020.
Black Lives Matter.
Indigenous Lives Matter.
The Modern Spirit is named after a Tragically Hip song, it would be irresponsible of us to try to mock the movement that is ongoing and fighting for the betterment of society.
