!§4,462,000

Work-Term Related Costs:

Academic Delivery Costs (ESTIMATED) : $9,890,000 Year-Round Costs (ESTIMATED) :

,

These costs come from such areas as having a full staff-load in the Rqjistrar’s office in the summer, having an extra set of exams in August, keeping all buildings open during the summer, and supplying all associated support services such as library services. The figure from the 1987studv was $4.66 million. Using a similar e&mation method as detailed above under Section B but using the the sum of the Administrative and Physical’ Plant figures, the 1995) figures were 1.42 times the 1987 figures. So, the $4.66 milliov figure for Year Round Costs from the 1987 study would translate into costs of $6.62 , million in 1991. Again, it must be ‘noted that this number is a very. rough estimate.

Student Co-op Fee:

Nate: In reality, the co-op fee covers sopewhere between 20 and 25 per cent of the total cost, but it is difficult to determine exactly how much. Therefore, while the studqt co-op fee is calculated to cover 100 per cent of the work-term related costs of the co-op system (Section A}, it turns out that the fee only covers around 21 per cent of the total cost of running thecoop system as seen by UW. The University pays the extra cost entirely out of its own operating budget with no government transfers for the coop system.

$6620,000 $20,972,000

100%

$4,371,000

22%

The University has applied to get government funding to cover somr of the costs in Section B and C above, but has of yet been unsuccessful, probably because it has’ always done such a good job in managing thr coop system and keeping a balanced budRet.

Two stories from the “nlt.srx.bonda gc” nt’wsgroul:, wart’ titled “ A savage md sick becIting with a biilv flub” and “Toi?urtn rlutdoors.” Both storits detailed in graphic fashion the violent brutalization of wumt)n bv men seeking enjoyment and pleasure. “The material is very offfensive, violent, and degrading toward women,” says Martin Van Nierop, UW’s information and public affairs director. “It is extremely regrettable that it is on there.” *T h e U n i v e r s i t y ’ s M a y , 1 9 9 1 “Repurt of the Adbisorv Committee on Network News” s&s that UW will accept all newsgroups and that content is not the school’s responsibilitv.

However, this does not mean that the University is at risk of being charged at this time.

Ten centres in Canada have been selected to participate in a major three-year project to develop the skills and resources of leaders in the cultural community. The Cultural Leadership Development Project is an initiative of the Centre for Cultural Management at the University of Waterloo. Designed to explore applications of distance education technologies in overcoming barriers to professional

mdevelopment in the cultural field, the Cultural Leadership Development

Project will involve 200 Canadians in the 10 centres in designing and trying out specialized courses to meet their

learning needs. F~IIowing the completion of the project in December 1994, the courses will be available from the University of Waterloo. Funding for the project has been received from the j. W. McConnell Family Foundation, Employment and Ix&igration Canada’s Innovations Program and Imperial Oil Ltd. ‘The University of Waterloo has always been’committed to irinovation. Twenty-five years ago, we. launched our correspondence program which has since become one of the largest and most successful distance education systems in North America,” said president Douglas Wright.

“Now cultural communities across Canada will be better served by bringing together the pioneering work or -the centre tar Uiltural Management, another U’W innova-

tii>n, with emerging opportunities in distance education. Selected to participate in the project are Edmonton, Kitimat/Terrace, Kitchener/Waterloo, St. John’s, Sault Ste. Marie, Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria, Windsor and Winnipgg. Each of these centres has an enthusiastic and committed core of participants prepared to invest many hours in the project. Together they will anticipate the changes needed in bringing audiences and artists together in the future, and then devblop specialized learning materials that will help current and future leaders to bring aboutthose changes. Participants look, forward to the benefits they wiIl realize from close collaboration with others in the same locale, from networking with participants in tie other centres across Canada, and from partnering with educators in course design and distance learning. The Centre for Cultural Management was established at the University of,Waterloo in 1989 to address the critical need for improved cultural leadership in Canada. The centre is committed to working with others in the development of the body of knowledge and the skills needed to not only strengthen the management and gov&nance capacities of staff and boards of cultural organizations, but a l s o

community-based cultural development.

Centre Director WilEam D. Poole’ acknowledged the Samuel and Saidye Bronfman Family Foundation,

founding funder of the centre, for enabling the university to target its efforts toward improving cultural leadership throughout Canada. ‘The Cultural Leadership Development Project wilI make a significant contribution to professional development of people now leading arts and heritage organizations in Canada, and will help to ensure that cultural expression is at the core of our cornmurtities and individual Eves,” PooIe says.

from UW News Bureau Family violence studied at UW summer session

The treatment of victims of famiiy violence is being explored in two summer session courses being offered at the University of Waterloo. Both social work courses attract professionals in the field and victims of family violence, as well as undergraduate students, says Prof. Dale Payne, a faculty member at UW-affiliate Renison College. As a special feature, both victims and perpetrators of family violence conduct guest presentations. The courses assess how to prevent domestic violence and how social policies affect family welfare. UW gets $1.4

million for revamping facilities

The University of Waterloo will spend $1.4 million in special funds from the Ontario government on repairing roofs, removing hazardous chemicals, rebuilding bridges and resurfacing roads. The $1,423,900 grant represents UW’s share of $20 million handed to universities under the province’s facilities renewal allocation. University staff now are carrying out projects around the campus, with much of the work expected to be done by September. Among the projects: roof and masonry repairs, including work at South Campus Hall at the entrance of the campus; asbestos removal at Carl Pollock Hall, located in the faculty of engineering; removal of PCBs from transformers in the central plant; replacement of three pedestrian bridges spanning Laurel Creek. St. Paul’s College at UW honors veteran local lawyer

Jack Harper, who has practised law in the Kitchener-Waterloo area since 1948, was honored with a 75th birthday luncheon at St. Paul’s College, affiliated with the University of Waterloo. Harper, now associated with Cowling & Henderson, specialized in corporate, commercial, tax and municipal law throughout his lengthy career. He has been president, director or chair of the board of three local insurance companies. In addition, he has volunteered with - many community service organizations. At present, he chairsthe principal’s advisory committee at St. Paul’s

College.

McCrae is also president of Field Hockey Canada, the national governing agency for the sport. As her sport’s representative, she will attend international meetings during the Olympics. At UW, McCrae is the coordinator of women’s athletics in the department of athleticsShe also coaches tie female indoor hockey team during the winter.

Orientation week is a traditional part of the university experience, a time for first-year students to participate in a week of fun-filled events organizqd by their student societies and residences. It allows incoming students the opportunity to meet new people, make friends, and to have fun. Spirit Day is a big part of orientation; its theme is the University of Waterloo working in the community, for the community, while establishing a strong and positive UW image. In the past, Shinerama has accomfished this goal, with Waterloo’s frosh flooding the surrounding area, washing cars and shining windshields to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis research. The 1992 Spirit Day has taken a new direction, and has incorporated an exciting new component to help strengthen and improve UW’s unity. An environmental aspect involving the beautification of parks and conservation sites in the area has been included. This new project has sparked a tremendous amount of interest from university students and the community. Stwlents from engineering, m, science, environmental studies, accounting, and St. Jerome’s and

Renison Colleges will help to improve the appearance of parks. To commemorate student efforts; four two-ton rocks with brass plaques will be situated at different. areas The University of Waterloo and the Federation of Students would like to thank the endowment fund committee for making it possible to obtain these monumental rocks. Whether shining or beautifying the environment, on September 12, 2,500 students will flood K-W and the surrounding area. Working together, the University of Waterloo and the community will help beat Cystic Fibrosis and clean the community. Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic disease, is responsible for taking the lives of more Canadian children than any other genetic disease. One in 25 Canadians carries the gene for CF. In such carriers, the chance of having a CF child is one in four. In recent years, research in the field of this disease has been remarkable in identifying the responsiblegene. Now&e effort is to find a cure, but the struggle is against time. The Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has never been so close, and never needed your help more. Last year, Uw fresh collected $42,685. This year, villages I and 11, the mathematics society, and St. Paul’s College will take to thestreets to shine Kitchener-Waterloo and surrounding area to raise UW’s contribution goal of $50,000.

Fireside Chat ?y Peter Brown

While sleepy Waterloo was engrossed in a battle of breasts this past week, the greater North American continent wasstill reeling after the surprise withdraw1 of H. Ross Perot from the American presidential race. Although the campaign hopes of Fill Ciinton, the Democratic candidate, seemed to be buoyed by Perot’s move (Clinton rose about 20 points in the polls), there are still four months left for President George Bush to launch a counterattack. As Republicans are fond of pointing out, and as, Democrats wish they wouldn’t, 1988’s Democratic candidate Michaei Dukakis led Bush by as many as-18 points after that year’s convention. Conventional political wisdom in the US instructs us that the party that is having a convention on or about the time that the poll is being taken stands a good chance of leading in that poll. The question now bandied about by knowledgeable pundits and ignorant column Nriters alike is who will appeal more effectively to captain-less Perot supporters. now that their hopes have been dashed. Obviously the American public is getting increasirigly cynical about politicians in general and about the status quo. The question is how this frustration will be expressed. There are two common lines of thrnking. One, that trumpeted by Clinton and his vicepresidential running mate. Al Gore, is that Americans, especially those who have worked 12-hour days just to oet Perot on the ticket in all 50 states ia condltl~~l of candidacy Imposed by.Perot himself )* wrll respond to cynicism about the current administration by registering a protest vote - rushing to the polls and voting Bush out. The assumption underlying this argument is that the American people wrll be able to separate what they don’t like about the Bush administration from their general perceptions of politicians, perceptions which are fed by a cheque-bouncing Congress and House of Representatives. The other main possibiltty, the one that will be counted on by the Republicans as it always is by incumbent parties, is that the American people will respond IQ political cynicism with apathy. With the only candidate that provided any c h a n c e of change - h o w e v e r u n k n o w n or misguided that change could turn out to be - out of the race, many Americans, especially Perot suppotiers, could simply respond -by saying “Screw it - if Perot isn’t running, I don’t care about who gets voted in.” This is the more likely of thetwo possibMies. The enthusiasm and idealism shown by Perot’s grassroots supporters, ihough quidkly gained, will not be easily transferred to either Clinton or Bush. Both remaining candidates are professional politicians, one of the major reasons so many Americans found Perot intriguing. A?d such enthusiasm, when undercut so, is liable to translate into a complete disdain for the electoral process. This election will have the distinction of a pulled-out Perot, but will also be remembered for one of the lowest voter turnouts in the modern history of American elections. And for the fourth cons&utive Republican victory. Of course, the election is still four monYhs away. America c o u l d f i n d o u t a b o u t B u s h ’ s extra-marital affairs by. then. But don’t count on it.

MY reasons for protest

by Nancy Forde a,

Okay, 1 would like Lo make a puint or two (no pun intend&) about this “Bob taboo”

thing. I participated in Waterloo’s protest in support of Gwen Iacob this past wt%ekend. I’d like to explain why 1put tape across my breasts with the word “censorrd” on them.

I was not afraid to be arrested for this gender-biased law because I think it is an unjust lay, but 1 was damned if I was going to have men leer and gawkat me for their sexual

pleasure. I was not there to be objectified by these men. That was not the point of the protest, so I covered my breasts in the hope that I would still get the message of protest across. And I think-l did. Perhaps I should have simply worn the bandaids I had on over my nipples (they have the Cookie Monster and Big l3ird @ them. I mean, if people found that - offensive, they can write toSesame Street). By covering &m ly mv nipples, I might have been able to Jetermine exactlv which part of the breast society. {or the individual officer) deems offensive. Perhaps 1 would still have ’ Zen arrekted, because; hey, men have nipples too. ’ 1 think a lot of ‘people are misinformed about the protests that took place last weekend, Just read Barbara Jackson’s article in Tuesday’s A’- W Rtru~~l titled “Confronting Reality.“,1 think she is not confronting reality herself. She calls the protests unnecessary “shock treatment.” I think not. At the protest last .Friday in Guelph, none of the women removed their shirts because they chose not to, and I think that that protest was very successful. Does Ms. Jackson truIy consider protests believe

of this type unnecessary? Does she that men of the 19th century were So generous toward and concerned with women that they would have, one day while sitting

artjund in their smoky, cigar-infested rooms, decided amongst themselves, “Gee, let’s give women the vute today!” No. Women have had to protest evev step of the way for their freedoms and there is obviously Gill a long way to ~0.

1 am concerned about the uninform-ed peck pie out there, like Ms. Jackson, who are in turn misinforming the pubIic. No ant, I know in support of Gwen Jacob would be ridiculous enough

or stupid enough

to su=est that

breasts are not sexual. I ht?v are. But thev are secondarv sexual organs, &tended oniv to provide lactation to feed offspring. They are not genitalia (ask ani doctor if in doubt). It is ludicrous to suggest that rape will incrdase if women walk around topless. Peo- pie who claim this are admitting that what women wear or what thev do not wear affects whether or not they will be raped. These people arc once again falling into the societal and judicial trap of blaming the victim instead of the rapists. Just like the man who was acquit-

ted of charges of moIesting a three-year-old girl last year in British Columbia. The man claimed that she was being sexually aggressive. The judge sided with him against the chiid. Thejudge blamed the victim. Surely the poor man could not have helped himself if the child is going to sit on his lap and arouse him. This kind of reasoning makes me sick 1 don’t think any of the women who support Jacob are naive enough to presume that no man is going to become aroused at the

sight of a woman’s breast. Hey, a lot of women will be aroused too, The arousal is something we are not asking men to control, only their reaction to the arousal. A man who imposes his arousal on a wornart or child by comq&ting rape is the only one responsible for his

behaviour and the only person to blame. A lot of women are scared that if the topless -law is passed, they will not be able to charge a

man for sexual harassment if he touches their *breasts. That is not true. Of course they can. Ii a man touched my knee, arm, shoulder, or anv other part of my body with sexual intent and-1 did not want him to, I can charge him with se& ual harassment. He need not even touch me. If he verbally harasses me in a Iewd manner, I can cha,rge him with the same. XH) bad Ms. Jackson couldn’t have made this point clear in - her article, Anyway, the real point about any of the protests is that female breasts are not indecent, offensive, or obscene. If the topless law is passed, it won’t matter whether women never choose to exercise this right, only that the stigma of being deemed indecent (of being grouped along with flashers or those who

masturbate in public, in parks,. or in front of children) be taken away from the female body.

I applaud the women who were brave enough to go topless last Saturday and were subsequently arrested. 4 applaud Richard Kneider for including women in his “no shirt, no service”sign at his Stratford rrtstaurant. He is obviously not gender-biased. I question the concern of Cheryl Jeffrey, a stripper at Waterloo’s Network, ahut small children who will be exposed to the sight of women’s bieasts. Children are far more comfortable with the female body than are most adults. If she is so concerned about children, perhaps she codd stop promoting the objectification of women’s bodies by men, or men’s bodies by women, for that matter* I would like my children to live in a world where the human body is appreciated, yes, but also highly respetted and never debased.

Sexual regions To the editor, The recent article uune 10) by Sue Forrest regarding the Gwen Jacob affair completely ignored several crucial aspects of the case. In her article, Ms. Forrest would have us believe that. the Canadian legal system is geared soley toward men and that women are accorded less consideration and protection (ep;. “men’s right to not be sex~ally’stimulated in-public is more important than a woman’s right to be topfree”). While the’ law does have different rules for-men and women in some cases, it also accords Ms. Jacob as well as all women certain protections that men do not enjoy. Sexual assault legislation is one such gender-based doublg standard. If a person &costs a woman and touches her brea&s, that person has comtiitted a sexual assault. If that same individual forces him/hers& on a man and touches his,chest without consent, that person has corrimitted common assault at worst. While the individual may have fondled the same regions of both the female and the malt*, thtb attack r)n the femaltt will bc dtlalt with rnortl harshlv since sexual assault is stlrious than wmmon aswAt. Viewed from this perspective, is legal recognition of the sexual nature of the female breast “unfair gender discrimination”, Ms. Fo&st? Fortunately, our court system is not as easily swept away by rhetoric as are some of Ms. Jacob’s supporters. It recognizes that while men ;yld women are EQUAL before the law in terms of opportunity, intelligence and perso~l worth, - hey remain. ar&omically DIFFERENT. This fundamental difference must be taken into account in court decisions. At times, this means having different rules for men and women, as in the cases of sexual assault and paid maternity leave. This also means hiwing ditkent ruks &wut’what conStituttY indt~ctM public c~xposilrtl. Much of the outrage in this matter stems from a perceived inconsistency in the law (ie. that a Aan can walkaround in-public without a shirt but a woman cannot). Q&te simply, the spirt of the law forbids the public disp-lai o f a &son’s sexual regions. Fbr both men and .Lomen, the exposition of pubic regions are forbidden. In addition, the’femaie l%east is a sexual region since it exhibits distinct sexual responsesand plays a role in the procreative prdcess (albeit g p&natal one). Tb reject the hotion that the fekale breast is a sexual region whose exposure should be treated differently than an arm, leg or a male’s chest is also to reject the notion that the unwanted fondling of a female breast constitutes a sexual assault. It is by recognizing the sexual nature of the female breast in BOTH cases of sexual assault and indecent exposure that the law shows itself to be consistent and, in fact, fair. In her article Ms. Forrest states that “there is no law explicitly criminalizing being top-free in a public place . . . yet police have seen fit to interpret unadorned women’s breasts as ‘indecent”‘. She calls this a “seemingly incongnaous interpretation given the unquestionable supremag of the Charter”. These statements are misleading in that they suggest that Ms. Jacob’s conviction cannot be iustified under c&rent legislation, including he Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Simply because Section 174 of the Criminal Code (the section dealing with indecent acts) does not explicitly state that a woman cannot bare her breasts and walk around in public, it does not legalize such behaviour. In fact, like most sections of the Code, what is. and what is not legal depends on how this section has been interpreted in the past (ie. in the form of precedents). Precedent law clearly states that, with the possible exception of sunbathing, a woman’s breasts must be covered in public and Ms. Jacob must have known she was breaking the law when she removed her top. To state that the “police” interpreted bare breasts as “indecent” is an untruth. The courts (in agreement with a large body of public sentiment) have ruled that bare breasts themselves are not indecent, but that their public

Back in the real world To the editor, Re: The walk-a-breast weekend. We sup port all efforts which promote the equality of the sexes. Further, we have, and continue to actively oppose all types of discrimination. However, we do* not believe that this particular issue would benifit women. Let us explain. If the groups of well meaning activists can convince society, and ultimately the courts, that women’s breasts are not a sexual part of the body the precedent would cause a multitude of negative side effects. For example, a male employer commenting on a “nice chest”normally is complimenting a male while insulting a female. But, if a precedent determines that the female breast is nob sexual then a valid complaiitt of sexual harassment may be set aside. Further, unwanted touching of a female breast could be argued to be non-sexual on the basis of the afbrementioned precedent. Such assults could no longer be-prosecuted as sexual ass& unless the &er a&ivites were judged to be sexual interference. Thus; a “victory” on this issue for the women’s movement may be taking two steps backward for one step forward. It would be a great loss for wom<n while a “victtiv” for activists. We fegret that the issues of equality are not cut and dry. Ideally such issues are black and white. But-in the ieal world we must sometimes sacrifice idealism for Dracticalitv. . We respectfully urge t6e well &aning activists to drop this issue if they truly wish to advance the interest of women. MikeDzis

Men against legal breasts display is. Furthermore, the “unquestionable supremacy” of the Charter referred to by Ms. Forrest includes Section 1 which states that certain reasonable limits may beimposed on equality rights. It is this section which has allowed affirmative action programs to be created and differing definitions of what constitutes sexual assault upon a male and a female to exist. Thus, the law under which Ms. Jacob was corivicted is not necessarily unconstitutional as the article’s writer hassuggested. In short, the Gwen Jacob affair deals with the legal status of a very specific part of the female anatomy. The spirit of the law states that no one, male or female, is allowed to display his or her sexual regions in public. The crucial issue .is whether or not the female breast is a sexual region. Supporters of Gwen Jacob cannot haveheir cake and eat it too. If they insist that the sexual nature of the breast is not sufficient to require it to be covered in public, then they must, ipso* facto&z willing to concede that the integrity of the female breast need not be protected by sexual assault legislation, ,which is absurd. Otherwise, the law would require only men to cover all of their sexual regions in public: a cIear-cut case of unfair gender-based discrimination.

Racism ranks

Walk-A-Breast protest, both for its means as well as its motives. My views stem from a number of beliefs. I believe the human race is fundamentally motivated to preserve and propagate itself. I believe the most constructive means (by far) of doing this is the loving, stable, two-parent, heterosexual family. My experience is that this unit tends to make for happy, wellbalanced children. I believe that responses to sexual stimuli are always, to a certain degree, involuntary. Finally, I believe that the failure of a marriage partner to keep his or her sexual relations within the marriage is usually cause for marital breakdown, and is always a de+ tabilizing force on the marriage. From these beliefs I conclude that it is not unreasonable to limit the so-called “rights” of a women to act voluntarily in a way that causes involuntary and unusual sexual stimylation of the men around her (and vice versa). I think that baring female breasts in public constitutes such an act. (Let’s save the general debate about what constitutes “unusual sexual stimulation” for later, shall we?) Obviously for Dine Pettifer’s husband, Gwen Jacob’s influence was one that started an incident in his marriage. Perhaps his actions showed a lack of strength and commitment. Perhaps Ms. Jacob should have been more cqnsiderate. Clothing is a barrier we have set up in society to protect ourselves (a rule to guide the wise and protect the foolish), and it is one of the few still standing. Why would we, as a society, w$h to subject our most successful self-preservation institution to yet another strain by &ally endorsing an act such as Ms. Jacob’s? Contrary to your “Feature”, my opinion is that Judge Payne’s decision * was neither dubious, nor an affront to reason. It was rooted in 10% and profound collective experience with the Emily as a fundamental human institution. Gwen Jacob’s “words of wisdom” are little more than irresponsible and foolish. That student “leaders” and their organizations would support an unquestionably illegal, and genuinely tasteless protest over a cause as dubious as this shows nothing but lack of forsight and absence of judgement on th+ part. That they do not see that such actions promote, rather than reduce,, gender violence, and the abuse of women I generally, is incomprehensible. M o s t students are still single, and perhaps from there stems the inexperience and lack of wisdom that claims that sexual license is harmQ less. Anyone is within their rights to think that Gwen Jacob represents a progressive view. I am within my’rights to protest such irresponsibility towards society, such disrespect for women, and fight it (legally) at every opportunity.

To ihe editor, Feeling, perhaps, that proper debate within the university is inadequate to stifle reforms, and also hoping to use the indignation of a popular “mob” to intimidate the university administration, Dr. Judy Wubnig of PhilosFphy accorded the K-W Record an interview which appeared on July 13th saying, among other things, that black authors should not be taught in high schools, that the employment of women and minorities lowers standards in educational institutions and leads to the collapse of economies, and that employment equity policies are tantamount to Communism. While reading this interview, I fell into a haze of utter disbelief. Flitting past my eyes were the grainy archival footage of the American South in the 50s where beerbellied sheriffs of Dixie towns argue that segregation is natural, and Senator Joe McCarthy interrogating the “Commie subversives” who had infilitrated the highest echelons of power, threatening the “American way of life”. I still find it incomprehensible that a former American, who at least watched the human rights stmggles on TV, has no awareness of the cultural nature of racial antagonism and the urgent need to eliminate it. Equally lamentable is the silence of the rest of the Philsophy faculty, which displays not a single reason why it should be considered a vital engine of ideas rather than a repository for tenures, privefegqd irrelevancies, out of touch with the public, and simply grateful to collect their cheques under the status quo of Anglo-Saxon colonial supreecy. Is this the death of humanism at UW? Indeed, if the reactionary activish of Dr. Wubnig and the fledgling neo-conservative lobby-group to which she belongs continues unchecked, the credibility of academia as a place where serious thinking takes place, a credibility already fragile with the public at large, will crumble within the student body itself. And that will be the end of the University in this country. James Ikxms 4A Hans. English

God damn conservatives

riving the government of a chance 10 earn interest on it. Surveys have been done recently that show that, surprise, the average consumer is not reaping immense savings as a result of the tax’s implementation. And, surprise again, the government is making a lot more money from

As the fall of 1992 rapidly approaches, I am reminded of two things, First, it

wili be almost

four years ago that Canadians were asked to elect g Prime Minister. Second, most will also recall that election being won and lost almost solely on the issue of free trade -with the United Stat&. This pre-election period then should include some type of an evaluation of the suc-

cess of Mulronev’s stroke of brilliance. There are no doubt many activists still seething four years later about the thing being signed in the first place who are trying to raise the idea that the FTA mav not have been in Canada’s best interest, bui they are being drowned out by the government’s fabricated news of a constitu tional crisis. When the Canadian news media devote so much attention to a ‘single issue such as the supposed separation crisis, less attention can be paid to other matters, such as Mulroney’s performance over the last eight years, The question 1 am most concerned about is this: what have we gained from free trade? Perhaps an examination of occurences after the 1988 election will provide answers. 1 remember courttless articles and television newscasts dealing ,with the Bank of Canada’s policy on interest rates, where it appeared John Crow was trying to equate the Canuck buck to the American one, come hell or high water. Someone put forth the e x p l a n a t i o n that possibly a secret deal had been struck, whereby our low dollar had to be raised to ensure w; didn’t have too high a hand in the relationship.

And who can forget the GST, accompanied bv the most ostentatious propaganda effort undertaken bv our government, ever. The Goods and S&vices Tax, quickly termed the “Gouge and Screw Tax” by government opposition, was and still is opposed by the majoritv of Canadians. Some smal1 busmess organi&ons have even suggested that &&one should withotd sending in their coll&ted &T until the last minute, thus dep-

it than they originally estimated. Wouldn’t your jaw drop ifit wasdiscovered that the GS?’ is part of a plan to shift more tax burden upon the average worker while cutting the corpdrate tax rate so our transnational ’ corporations can better compete with their transnational corporations? And golly, we’ve sure cleaned house with respect to reducing American tariffs on our products, eh? Why, just a short while back those nutty guys put a 6.5 per cent tariff on some sort of lumber product we ship down there. But well win the appeal, right? And if we don’t, well, the forestry industry only employs about 10 pr cent of Canadians. While professing concern for the current u n e m p l o y m e n t r a t e , o u r fderal g o v e r n m e n t does not attempt to revise the trade agreement, and no one dares suggest Canada give their six-month notice to slow the rate at which we are being fucked around. If we truly were getting a fair shake with this agreement, wouldn’t the Mulruney election machincrv begin generating statistics about this and &her political accomplishments of this. man? If. Those who forget their mistakes are domed to repeat them, sayeth the wise Jelk, Biafra. Everyone who voted for Lyin’ Brian repent now, and the country can be saved! kt we forget, we remember: the tuna thing, the GST, rolling the dice, Mcwh 1 ake, record numbers of Cabinet Ministers resignin% the GST, Sinclair Stevens, Ministers and MPs convicted of DUI, the forced passing of the FTA and GST, our involvement in the Gulf invasion, VIA Rail cutbacks, the GST....

B.reast *issue not trivial’ A Lot of people obviously do care for one reason or the other. The amoral majority and blind idiots (often a two-in-one combination) find it necessary to make puMic their disgust, and to advise wayward Gwen that she best focus her energy on other problems men have caused women. Similarly, people like myself wish to publicly support her and try to persuade others of what appears glaringly obvious. It is an unfortunate trend that people fighting for choices outside of mainstream thought art’ increasing being persecuted and ridiculed flrr challenging the “community standard,” a vague term with manv connotations whose interpretation has marked Gwen for life as an enrmv of the state. Ma& seen1 to believe that “she just wanted attent&.” After all, whv else would a worn&n want to take her top off in public, right? I wish 1could rt*duce the issue’s complexity to that level. She wanted to draw attention to the imbdded sexism in the law and its interpretation, perhaps. Did she want a criminal rcbcord? About as much as you or I.

TTze-crime of the USS Vincennes

A tragedy forgotten after five years by Klmsmw

Jafarpour .

July 3,1992 was the fifth anniversary of one of the most horrible tragedies in recent history. Five years ago on that day, an American warship, the USS Vincennes, shot down an Iranian passenger jet with more than 300 people on board. The event was so terrible that even those who committed this act could not annuunce it. From the beginning, many propaganda maneuvres were used in reporting this event to the media. Fanastic lies were made in this regard. According to these reports, two commercial ships, one Liberian and the other Pakistani, had been attacked by Iranian armed boats prior to the event. Having received help messages from the two ships, Vinctlnnes hcad,d for ‘1 suppc)rt cjpcbration whrln it c~~nfrontt~d m Iranian airbus cruising to t a r g e t ihe navy s h i p . Therefore, it had no choice other than defending itself by shooting the plane down, while still in international waters. The scenario seemed to be perfect, and hence it justified the action!

But no, there was still something missing. It was Goebels’ (Hitler’s propaganda man) dottrine that if you want to tell a lie, make it with the fullest strength so that people will accept it more easily. Now those who convicted Goebels in their courts seem to act no better than him. Based on this doctrine, the courageous operation of the Vincennes crew

“humanity” and “human rights” in the 20th century at all or are these terms, as many others ones, just means in the hands of power to suppress t h e u n w a n t e d regimes, movements, and individuals? The Vincennes tragedy has become a page of history now. Even the bones of 300 men, women, and children will rot away. Now what matters is not investigations to disclose more facts, nor financial compensation for the victims’ families. What really matters is whether the world reacts to this evident crime or keeps silent. Being insensitive to such a great disaster will result in more atrocities of this or another kind. Obviously, the victims of these crimes will be not always be parties from the Third World and it will include even those in the Second World who can something today and nothing tomorrow!

300 killed by U.S. wumhip was appreciated and a medal awarded to its captain bv the US president! Now ‘in its fourth anniversary, ABC reviewed t h i s tlvcnt i n i t s o n e - h o u r newsmagazine program, Rri,@irliJ. Whv an American institution did so is an intereiting feature of the US policies by itself and needs to be discussed separately.

They did it again. Okay, so it was only 10 white males this time. But the method was practically the same. Maybe Ill coin a new word fclr this sort of cynical, political (read: statecraft) manipulation: “meeching.” “Well, honey, looks like them fellas in Ottawa have meeched this country pretty good with that GST thing.” Or, “After we layoff a couple thousand of our employees and transfer their work to Mexico, well get the PR Department to meech the press.” My vision of Canada includes Quebec? Newfoundland? (is irrelevant.) The recent constitutional agreement is no different from the “politicking” of previous eras since the mid-19th century. Capitalism has now become justified by the rhetoric of Iibtrral democracy. Yet, this latest package should now clearly show the lie that is liberal democracy. You can call the state we find ourselves in whatever you like: friendly fascism, 1984, f&s .hcv-icctrru. I’d like to call it Imperial G7 Inc. subsidiary of the Bourgeois Empire and Trading Company. For me, living in an administrative outpost (the municipal corporation euphemistically known as the “city”), watching the wheeling and dealings of these so-called “representative of the people” is quite sickening. They no more represent me than the Bolsheviks did the Russian peasants in 1917. I would not be surprised to learn that the Fathers of Confederation (You still don’t think we live in a patriarchal society?) were less concerned about creating a democratic union than trying to prevent the US from stealing their market and resources within the British North American territories. Being good capitalists, they realized, liktl their counterparts in Europe had already, that the creation of a

nation-state was a nifty way of consolidating people and natural resources, with the sole intent of making lots of money. The power of such an ideolo&al value system is easy to understand once you cut all the ethical and social fetters that bind the intellect of capita1 to the heart of society Maybe economics and statecraft make a snug fit between the sheets. This combination of power and domination can be an erotic “turn-on” for some, subtlv addictive and ultimately destructive. Is it anv wonder why things haven’t changed much in 125 years?

Parceling out legislative powers to provincial states does not reallv make government closer to the people. It just makes things easier for multinationals. Remember, today’s megacorporations do not respect national boundaries. They simply milk a region for all it’s worth and then trv to pack up and leave as quietly as they can. Unfortunately, it’s often quite messy. Broken familes, domestic’ violence, bitter cynicism, and the slow withering awav of hope for a better life are the consequenck Essentially, the neo-conservative agenda championed bv Reagan, Thatcher, Bush, and Mulroney has-as its goal the dismantling of the welfare state constructed by 1930s social democrats. “The lessons of thtr past were all learned with workers’ blood,” sang Billy Bragg. So was the high standard of living in the West. And they’re going to pay even more before the economic bloodletting is finished. The most recent case? Overfishing of thtr cod stocks, per se, is not the cause of 19,000 Newfoundland fishermen finding they have time on their hands. It is the ideological assumption of global markets, international competition, and national divisions of labour that force fishermen to mine the seas as if looking for gold. The ecological blindness of this world-view also exacerbates the natural dwindle in fish numbers that is a cyclic aspect of any marine ecosystem. This is the bleak portrait of economic imperialism run by the business oligarchy. Community - and to some extent regional - economic autonomy and direct democracy should be mutually tied together. It can be said that neither exist today - which is the tragedy of this century and mocks the- legacy of freedom won by workers and peasants from-the bosses and feudal lords.

brought it into reality? Is it less than state terrorism by those who are condemning this kind of activity day and night? What hapd pened to the medal presented to the navy commander? Most imhortant of all, what was the “world”‘s reaction to these confessions? Is there an alert conscience to care about

Sadly, ior both Canada and thti Johnson family, Gregcouldn’t qualify for Barcelona. For sc)mtr rather complicated and convoluted requirements, Canada cannot field an entire team. Due to rigid eligibility limitations for the Olympic field - 24 in some weight categories and 32 in others - and tht? fact that both the United States and Cuba, (boxing superpowers), are entitled to field entire teams, Canadian boxers must enter into elimination bouts with the rest of the Americas in order to qualify.

Acid Test Modem Exhibition Mm1 liUf1 k/t1 II July IS,1992 by Steve Topper Imprint staff

What else was there to do on a rainy Saturday night? Of course, Fed Hell isn’t exactly the place to have a rave, but where else in K-W could it be held? Publicized as “Rave on the Road,” this sounded like a techno show with cool lights and throbbing, hard dance music. Well . . . Modern Exhibition opened the show. Personally, only two words could describe this group: Depeche Mode. Although they didn’t do any DM covers, one not knowing all of DM’s works would swear Modern Exhibition was copying the group. The difference between the two groups was that ME lacked any energy. Their music was precise, electronic, well-put-together, and wellexecuted. Hbwever, it was boring. Although most songs were around 120 beats per minute, dancing to them would have been a journey into th;e monotonous land of cold, synfh esked garbage. Their one cover, Seel’s “Killer,” was done correctly, but still missed any soul found in the original. These guys need some creativity, and maybe a few doses of caffeine.

The redeeming qualities of the slower songs, on the other hand, don’t I readily reveal themselves; it takes effort on the part of the listener to bring them to the surface. ’ There are, of course, instances where fast and slow overlap, most

notably on “Good For My Soul” and the third single, “Almost Gold.” This merging of speeds is carried out effectively. In short, the fast songs on Hun[$s Lkt~d are great and make this album worthy of consideration as one of the year’s finest.

Having-long labourtrd under the misnomer of being a member of New York’s literary brat pack, Mclnerney is, to some extent, stepping out of the flash-in-the-pan, literilrv bad boy persona with which he was assigned. Mclnerney’s detractors have oftaccused Mcinernev’s writing of being more fact than fiction. That he wrote novels which were merely a cataloguization of interpersonal relatioriships and events. That mav still be true, after ail Mcinernev’s characters have alwavs mirrored ihe station in life which he has presently attained. Waving graduated from coIlege a while ago, he now writes of wu read

Most remarkable, Mclnerney’s character, Jeti Pierce, is a young successful writer who, get <his, is et%ering into an alliance with Hollywci>d for a movit! deal. Too true to life? Perhaps, but forgivable, in the end. Set in the greed-laden backdrop of late-eighties New York, the years which saw Warhol die, Milken and Boesky rise and fall, Brightness Fails is spawned by that same fertile ground from whence came Oliver Stone’s only decent film, Wall Street, and Bret Easton Ellis’ cause celebre, American Psycho. For those pf the faint of heart, it is dutifully noted here that McInemey’s novel has more in common with the former than the latter. The significance of the novel’s title is explained at the novel’s denouement, almost as distraction. Culled from Ogden Nashe’s “A Litany in Time of Mawe,” a poem which has

around, Mayhew’s way). The screenplay, by Edzard and her editor, Oliver Stockman, (who also worked on the sets), has a wonderful idea at its core. Jacobi is both prince and pauper. As Mr. Frederick, he toils over ledgers in the bowels of a 19th century theatre; donning an elegant coat and cravat, he becomes the wealthy Sir John, and is welcomed into the shimmering drawing-rooms of London aristocrats. Raised in abject suffering, he turns a bilious eye toward the gossip, perversions, careless speculation, and false charity of the idle rich. He decides to cheat them for the sake of his peeis, tftose stooping in the streets to salvage needles and dog shit (the latter to sell as fertilizer). It is not long before Mr. Frederick is in danger. of losing h i m s e l f in t h e r o l e o f S i r john.
