The Hatchet is a purely satirical Atlantic Canada news site. Created by Acadia students to help make light of the constant lunacy that permeates major news outlets, The Hatchet aims to provide a good distraction to anyone finding themselves in need of one. Through wit and creativity, our contributors and editors hope you find mirth and merriment in our less-than-accurate reporting of otherwise too serious events.

Based out of Wolfville, Nova Scotia, our team writes on a variety of topics from local and global news, to sports, politics, and science and opinions. Feel free to take a look around and share with any friends who need a good laugh.




In the near future you will meet someone who will have a major impact on your life. Too bad you’ll immediately ignore them and forget who they are.


A person from your past might be holding you back from enjoying the present. Buy a knife. Free yourself.


Just because others expect you to be the life of the party doesn’t mean you have to be. Sit in a corner and pout. Hopefully someone will have pity sex with you.
