It is the goal of The Chevron to provide undergraduates at the University of Waterloo with a truly free press, unfettered by draconian measures such as the feared Policy 33, protected by a warm blanket of anonymity. It is the founding belief of The Chevron that no issue before the student body is beyond, above, or outside of the scrutiny of the press, and that no person's offense is grounds to muzzle or divert such scrutiny. No longer shall we have to wait for press releases from our own friends and peers to find out none of the details surrounding the resignation of a FedS executive. No longer shall our satirists have to fear the Dean's office chastising them for their discussion of breasts. No, dear reader, we now have a place to exercise our vital freedoms, and editors who will stand for them.

Many people have asked us why we chose the name "The Chevron". The Chevron was the student paper at UW that was replaced by the Imprint in 1978. This publication existed in a time of heightened activism and student empowerment at the University of Waterloo. While the original Chevron spun into irrelevance and became a shouting box for the hardline communists our goal is to inspire a return to activism on campus.
