Volume 15, Number 12

Charlottetown constitutional continuation b y K e n Bryson imprint staff October26 has been designated the day on which the fate of the Charlottetown Constitutional Agreement will be put to the people of Canada. This agreement is the fruit of many months of debate and discussion by the various political parties, governments and interest groupsthatconstitutethecanadian political scene. As with the failed Meech Lake accord of 1990, the main point of contention over the accord has been, and continues to be, the position of Quebec within the Canadian confederation. In the agreement, Quebec has once again been given distinct sta-

tus.

Thus, in all future interpretations of theconstitution,Quebecwillbeconsidered distinct and all relevant interpretations will uphold the right of Quebec to its own culture. . Also included in the Canada Clause are phrases which ensure aboriginal peoples the right to self government, and which commit Canadians to equality among the sexes, to racial and ethnic equality; and to the equality of all provinces “at the same time as recognizing their d i v e r s e c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s . ” The other main amendment to the constitution is that which creates a smaller, elected Senate. The new Senate would consist of six Senators from each province and one from each of the territories.

T h e . o p e n i n g section of the agreement, the Canada Clause, intends to amendthe1982constitutionbyadding a clause defining “fundamental Canadian values,” by which the entire constitution, including the Charter of Rights, is to be interpreted. The Canada Clause contains the phrase “Quebec constitutes within Canada a distinct society.”

this more effective a n d responsible senate is hoped to increase the representation’of the less populated provinces, ensuring equality in the legislature. In what has been billed, by the Conservative government, as “the spirit of Canadiancompromise,” the, Charlottetown Agreement creators have attempted to bridge the gap between interest groups, disgruntied ProvinciaL governments, and

from UW News Bufeuu Despite the severe recession, mop job placements have been found for 97.4 per cent-of University of Waterloo students on work terms this fall (September to December), president Douglas Wright announced at Tuesday’s board of governors meeting, About 10,000 of Waterloo’s 16,000 fi.tIl-time students are enrolled in co-operative education programs. These programs, in which students alternate fourmonth academic terms with fourmonth work terms for practical experience in their career fields, are available in all six of Waterloo’s faculties. “It’s’ a tremendous achievement in the face of a major economic recession,” said Wright. “It’s a grtiat credit to tiur staff, faculty, alumni, and friends who have helped in this all-out effort.” A Jim Wilson, director of Co-operitive Education and Career Services, said this fall 3,091 students were eligible for jobs. Of those 3#10 have jobs, leaving 81 but he expects that will be reduced to about 65 to 70 in a few weeks. A 9& to 99-per-cent level is considered the optimum placement and compares favorably to student job rates realized by the co-op dep&tment over the last decade when economic conditions were better+ I Usually, one to two per cent of eligible students go unplaced fur various circumstances, including a mismatch of skills for eligible jobs or lack of job opportuniues ip a particular discipline or other personal reasons. “The recession has made a big differeni=e in how everyone in-

volved in the co-op process finds jobs for students,” Wilson said. “The last recession (in the early 1980s) taught us that we had to broaden the base of our employers, so we madeaconcertedefforttoaddabout 1,000 companies to our list of employem, which now totals about 2,600.” Wright said that this has been the worst economic time faced by theuniversitysinceitpioneeredthe c-p system in Canada 35 years ago. UW now has the highest co-op enroIrnent of any institution in the world. Wright underscored the effective assistance provided by UW alumni in the wake of the summer term when 92 per cent of students had co-op jobs. He said unique efforts have since been employed to assist in the job search, including many alumni, particularly in engineering and in earth science networking across Canada to seek out placements. “Thewholecommunitygotthe jobdone,” Wilsonsaid.Butheadded that the winter term (January to April) is already looming and will pose a big challenge to those working to find jobs. He also said the job squeeze has also hit new graduates hard. “To get a full-time job after graduation students have to appreach the task very professionally. The amount of research and preparation is unprecedented. They must be creative in their job search. Even so, ~0-0~ graduates are recognized as having an advantage because of tl&r work-term experience." Areas hardest hit by the ecc~ nomic downturn have been architecture, accounting and some areas inengineeringandscience.

- Ethics and animal rights . - Environmental impacts - World hunger - Health and-nutrition Each of the groups present have built their associations around one or more of these categories arid many have branched into other areas as w e l l . The Waterloo-Wellington Al- s liance f o r A n i m a l s , f o r e x a m p l e , i s not only concerned in the multitude of animals slaughtered every minuteforhumanconsumption,but also about the animals used in animal testing, laboratory experimetits

and those killed for fur or for entertainment value, like those in bullf i -g h t s . Other groups, including the Global Community Centre, are concerned about the effects of meateating on the environment and world hunger. I n c o r p o r a t e d i n t o the e n v i r o n mental problems, is the fact that while the majority of agricultural land in the world is used to produce feed for livestock, the energy used in this production could be used to fight the world- hunger problem. Such staggering gIoba1 prob-

lems were not the concern of every group participating at Vegetarian Day, however. The Hare Krishnas and the Jains attended to promote vegetarianism as a part of a complete lifestyle that doesn’t interfere with the lives of other creatures. WhiIe the two groups each insisted on their distinctiveness, they share the similar belief that e v e r y animal contains a soul and thus to kill one is a form of murder. With so many benefits of a vegetarian diet being touted by the groups’ presentations, we wonder w h y there are relatively few ‘vegetarians. “Making the choice to become a vegetarian involves challenging notions and traditions of our society. Meat-eating has b e c o m e s u c h a cultural thing,” explained the representative from the K-W Vegetarian Association. As for those who do make the switch; “young people are much more likely to make the choice for environmental or ethical. reasons, w h e r e a s dder p e o p l e a r e m o r e interested in thenutritional and health benefits.” World Vegetarian Day is an annual event at thecampus Centre.

Constitutional Constipation by Scott Carson Imprint staff

What constitutes a constitution? Anione w i t h h e l p f u l h i n t s s h o u l d contact the ArtsStudentUnion! Due to what looks frighteningly close to a clerical error, the newly amended con,&itution of the A.S.U. has been rendered invalid as a result of beiig updated after the March first deadline. According to the 1988 constitution (which is still in power), any changes must be settled and in print before March first in order to be implemented. It w a s d i s c o v e r e d d u r i n g t h e summer that these rules w e r e n o t strictly followed so the new executive decided to can the new document and rewrite what was done last year. The major problem most of the individual a r t s s o c i e t i e s ( E n g l i s h , History, Psychology, Economics,

etc.) have is that the resulting delay in the new constitution means that monetary allotments are going. to be made according to the 1988 constitution s&e it is the one that has been used every year up until now. The old constitution granted to each departmental society $1.50 per member up to 100 members and if a society wanted more funding, ithad to apply for a grant (with an outline of what the funds were to be used for) through the A.S.U. office. This allotment system reflects the number of students-present in 1988anddoesnotsufficientlycover the expanded costs of running events for the studen& in the individual s o c i e t i e s . The revised edition of the A.S.U. constitution presented during the summer granted $1.50 per member up to 300 members and $.75 per member after that. This money comes from the $7.00 that arts students pay to the A.SU. per term when they pay their tuition.

Also with the delayed funding comes the necessary postponement of early-in-the-term society events designed togenerateinterest among students and make their return to school more enjoyable. Besides the reduction in pre posed funding, the delay in the new constitutionhaspostponedthepresentation of the fall A.S.U. budget detailing allotment cheque expectations.Thishasnotkeptthemfrom requesting the society budgets, however, even though as of yet nobody knows for sure what they can expect in the way of funding. It is like a, power struggle between the four members of the Arts Student Union Executive and the thousands of arts students they are supposed to represent. Nobody is going to see an agreeable resolution to the developing conflicts unless A.S.U. council members can force the executive to loosen the purse strings and allow student access to funds which are rightfully theirs.

F0rme.r Reverend .“ Speaks to AIIJS Rally by Jeff Wumer 1mprlnt stujy

On Tuesday, October 6, a vigil was held for AIDS victims at The Willowells Club in Waterloo as part of the AIDS Awareness Week act i v i t i e s . L a s t i n g f r o m 7 p . m . until 8:30 p.m., it was organized b$ the AIDS Committee of Cambridge, Kitchener, Waterloo and Area (ACCKWA). About 35 people were expected to come out. Former ReverendJiiFerry was the guest speaker for the evening. Ferry, whose licence as an Anglican Minister

was revoked last

yearr

is a

practising homosexual and an activist for gay rights. He was asked to speak as the issues of hoposexuality I and AIDS awareness are

closely related. Organizers hoped that Ferry, in relating his experiences, would “ b r i n g o t h e r s out,” - p e o p l e w h o would not normally attend such e v e n t s . W h i l e t h e v i g i l was publicized, its location was made available only to people who registered, mainly t o h e l p p r o t e c t t h e p r i v a c y of attenders from the merely curious. Speaking to reporters before the event, Ferry pointed to homophobia as one of the obstacks to AIDS awareness. “If you have AIDS, assump~~~aremadeaboutyou,“~sta~~

He referred to the Anglican-run Casey House and its work for victims of the syndrome. “when the Bishop fired me he

brought rampant discredit to the work of Anglican Chaplains” by associating Anglicans with homophobia. This in turn made people less likely to go to the house for help, he concluded, As we& the AIDS Committee of the Anglican Diocese of Toronto “almost considered folding up their operation” when Ferry was disciplined. Rob Gascho, a member of ACCKWA, argued that one of the primary barriers to AIDS awareness in high schools is the “I’m immortal” attitude. Teenagers fail to realize that the danger of catching AIDS aIso applies to them. “They have the information, but the question is whether they’ll act on it,” said Gascho.

Aborigina s address Const tution ’ by Cynthiu Renkema Imprint staff A meeting was held Tuesday n i g h t t o d i s c u s s the c o n s e q u e n c e s of theConstitution for Aborigionals. The meeting was hosted by the Weejeendimin Native Resource Centre, with Carleen Elliott and Arlene Smith presenting the no and yes sides of the vote respectively. It was stressed that Native people should not abstain from voting but rather exercise their right to v o t e . If t h e C o n s t i t u t i o n i s p a s s e d , there will be no changes for the existence of Aborigionals. The Treaties and Indian Act, which are presently in existence, shall remain under the new Constitution. A yes vote therefore implies that Natives agree to keep the existing agreements a n d a l s o v o i c e s t o t h e g o v ernment that they wish to remain a part of the existing government. VotingnototheConstitutionmeans t h a t A b o r i g i o n a l s w a n t a self-government. The evening focused on questions that were drawn up by the public. Some questions that were addressed: How will the Constitution affect Native women? If we vote no, how will. it affect self-government? Why should. Native people participate in the Referendum? How will the Constitution affect the reserves; will, Natives lose them or own them? Will the Constitution allow Natives to address the needs of their people in their way or in the ways of English-European style

Government? If you have any concerns about how the Constitution will affect Aborigionals or if you would like to know the answers to these questions, feel free to contact the Weejeendimin Native Resource C e n t r e i n Kitchener, After an intermission, time for discussion and a question period was allotted. Discussion lent itself to explaining the situation, status and rights of N.ative Peoples in Canada. The Treaties in existence state that Natives are a Sovereign Nation but the Indian Act restricts thqm o f freedoms in ways such as making an economy for themselves. Natives feel that their situation is a frustrating struggle. They feel that their right toexpress themselves as a cultural group are being viol a t e d . H o w e v e r , it w a s b r o u g h t t o the attention of the people present at the meeting that Natives have always been working from outside the system of government and maybe they should try to start working from within the system if they want change. L a s t l y , o n e q u e s t i o n that was posed at the meeting, to which both Native and non-Native individuals can relate, should be of interest to us all. What effect will the Constitution .have on future generations?

Laurier hosts teach-in on Somalia by Robin Kulbflcisch Imprint staff

In February 1991, UNICEF and several other international relief agencies w a r n e d t h e W e s t e r n w o r l d of the impending tragedy in Somal i a . W e d i d n o t l i s t e n . A s a result, human suffering in Somalia has reached catastrophic proportions. The International Committee of the Red Cross estimates that l,CKXI Somalis are dying every day. Worse-yet, it aF$ean3 that the current situation is only the tip of the iceberg. Other relief agencies in Somalia remxt that earlv estimates applied to he major p& cities only andthatmanymorepeoplea.recIose to dying in the remote, unattended villiigei Over the past few months, Somalia has received considerable international mediacoverage. Finally, we are asking the questions: how did such a situation come about and what action needs to be taken. These yo questions were the focus of a teach-in held at Wilfrid

Laurier University on October 7. The event was organized by political science professor LevGonick to d r a w attenion t o the crisis and to examine what roles individuals can play in the relief effort. The day-long event included four panel discussions led by representatives from the United Nations and several other international and local relief agencies, Somalian refugees, and Canadian and United States experts on Somalia. rr

Dr.KenMen.khausofDavidson C o l l e g e i n North C a r o l i n a o p e n e d theteach-inwithabriefdescription of the political and so&I factors that are at the root of the current crisis in Somalia. Essentially, the country is in a state of anarchy. There is no ruling go&rnment and no official army or police force.

It is important to understand that Somalia is a clan and lineage based society. There are not two sides to the civil war, but many sides. Clans and sub-clans are fighting each other. As well, clans are regrouping and alliances shift constantly. The intense fighting has made it impossible for the Somalian people to maintain their pastoral lifestyle. As a result, they are starving to death. Relief efforts have been extremely difficult for a number of rFason.s. Since there is no ruling govemment,thereisnosinglegroup with whom to base negotiations for peace. As well, food convoys, have failedtoreachthoseinneed, Agencies have not &rt able to negotiate withbandit gangslootingfoodconvoys as these gangs are not contriolled by any central leader. War lords are also looting food convoys and ding t h e f o o d t o o t h e r c o u n t r i e s such as Ethiopia in exchange for more weapons. The solution? Dr. Menkhaus believes that a strong starting point w o u l d b e the creation of so-called United Nations Safe Haven Zones. These de-militarized zones would be set up so that each clan w o u l d have access to at least one zone. By alleviating the problem of food distribution, the zones would help Somali people concentrate on rebuilding local economies. They would also provide a safe place for elders to meet and discuss conflict resolution possibilities. Menkhaus did not attempt to convince the audience-that his s o l u tion is the onIy solution. However, he stressed that a decision must be made in the very near future and that relief efforts willnot workwithout financial support from developed countries such as Canada and the United States. Menkhaus and other panel speakers also emphasized the power of individuals to contribute to the overall relief efforts. For example, letters, phone calls and peaceful demonstrations will f o r c e goverrunent

His 1977 study and resulting book titled Road Hustler has been updated, expanded and renamed: Road Hustkr: Grafting, Magic and the TFrief Slcbcullu~ It is published by Kaufman and Greenberg of New York City. Prus said magicians alerted him to the s i m i l a r i t y b e t w e e n t h e m selves and hustlers, which convinced him to devote several chapters on the comparison in the latest edition. “Both are masters of image work.” he s&s. The book was researched and written with the assistance of C.R.D. Sharper, a former r o a d h u s t l e r - a confidence man whose specialty is the manipulation of card and dice games.

“Parallel Lines” lecture 1disappoints by lsabel White

imprint staff

Noted mathematician H. M. S. Coxeter visited UW l a s t T h u r s d a y , October 3, to deliver a lecture entitled “Parallel Lines”. The lecture, jointly sponsored by the Pure Math Club and the Faculty of Mathematics, began at I:30 p.m., and took place in DC 1302. The room was full to capacity with undergraduates, graduate students, and professors; with some even sitting in the aisles. Coxeter, an elderly, birdlike man, was born in England and studied at Cambridge University before becoming a Fellow at Princeton. He later came to Canada as a University of Toronto faculty member. His field is geometry, and-his research has earned him Fellowships in both the Royal Society of London and the R o y a l S o c i e t y o f Canada. Coxeter’s lecture was the first in a series of lectures called “Mathematics: a H i s t o r i c a l Perspective” organized by the Pure Math Club. He is the author of numerous books, including Projective Geometry. Following introductions by PMC president Nikhil Shah and Dr. John Wainwright, Dr. Coxeter took the floor, to a round of applause. H e b r i e f l y traced some of the history of geometry, from its Greek roots to the present, demonstrating a “cut-and-paste” p r o o f of the Pythagorean t h e o r e m o n a w h i t e b o a r d at the front of the room. An information sheet distributed before the lecture proclaimed that the lecture was t o be divided into two parts: the Affine Plane and th,e Hyperbolic Plane. Using the p r i n c i p l e s o f a f f i n e g e o m e t r y , Dr, CFxeter demonstrated how to locate the centre of a circle using only a double-edged ruler. Affine geometry, according to the PMC information sheet, “. . . i s simpler than Euclidean [ g e o m e t r y ] because it is based solely on the c o n c e p t o f parallelism; angles are never mentioned, not even right angles. But it includes a theory of area, and parallelograms can be generalized to affinely regular polygons.” Before Dr. Coxeter could get to the second half of the lecture, on the hyperbolic plane, he rati out of time. In fact, the lecture, whichwas schedu l e d t o b e a n h o u r i n l e n g t h , had already r u n o v e r b y a l m o s t t w e n t y minutes. Following the lecture, PMC vice-president Martin Wainwright presented him with the book Images cf Waterloo. Later, several math students expressed some disappointment over the truncated lecture and its low level of complexity. “It was not what I had expected,” s a i d K e v i n C h e u n g . L . A m b e r O’Heam agreed: “I had expected it to be more complex.” But, she added, she was glad that it was easy enough to be unders t o o d b y a first-year math student. T h e r e w i l l b e t h r e e other lectures in the “Mathematics: a Hist o r i c a l Perspective” series. The next will be held on O c t o ber 23, with Dr. Jerrold Marsden l e c t u r i n g o n Classical Mechanics. Sprott

An ethical engineer : myth/reality? In the second lecture of a series designed to give engineers a forum to ex and their knowledge of issues Pacing them in their future, Dr. Abbyann L y n c h gave a talk about the ethics i n v o l v e d i n e n g i n e e r i n g . Lynch is currmtly the Chief of Bioethiss at the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children and although she has her background in medical ethics, her talked centred on ethical issues which are relevant in an engineering context. She star&d off by defining ethics as being the right actions, values, and principles, and that all decisions in the workplace should be t e c h n i c a l l y , legally, and ethically correct. lnengineeringwearetaught the technical aspect very thoroughly but are quickly brushed through o n e course on legal and ethical issues. L y n c h stated that many of the

decisions people have to make in life are ones of ethical dilemmas; thiswasdefmedasasituationwhere one’s values are in conflict. For example, finding a wallet on the street, of course the right thing to do is to try and return it, but there is also that nagging tolookafter yourself and keep it. She then presented her five steps in de&g with an ethical dilemma: 1) gathering and exami&g all pertinent information; 2) considering all possible courses of action or inaction; 3) identifying legitimate d e c i s i o n makers; 4 ) c h o o s i n g and implementing a course of action or inaction; and 5) reviewing the decision. Examples were then given which concerned whether or not to report a colleague whose drug use w a s s t a r t i n g t o affect his/her performance o n t h e j o b , how to deal with a supervisor demanding your approval of unsafe design practices, and finding out that the only job

opportunity you have is working to design weapons of war. Thesesituationsdemonstrated that one must alw+s weigh the personal impact of decisions, such as losing your job, against the issue of public safety. As Lynch noted, theengineeringprofessionisalways a conflict betweenbeing a guardian of public safety and being a creator of a design which pushes the envelop of technical development which may lead to errors and en* danger the public. Also presented was the concept of acting ethically and the appearance of acting ethically. You may know that just because a certain contractor gave you a pair of hockey tickets, you would not show them any special favours in awarding a contract. But, on the outside, it will appear to others that you are b e i n g b o u g h t o f f , s o h e n c e e v e n if y o u d o n ’ t a c t u n e t h i c a l l y y o u have g i v e n off the appearance of such and therefore it is not right to accept

any such favours. Sheendedbystaingthatenginmwolurttarilyt.akeandathwhi& sets out a series of ethical points; these include respect for the law, respect for your employer, respect for other engineem, and, most importantly, respect for the public S&tjL In closing, she said that most engineers were definitely ethical and have the best interest of the public at heart, but it’s the ones that don’t which you have to watch out for. , The engineering student who principally organized theselectures iscorrectlynamedDougYamash.ita~ The third and final lecture in this series for this term wiI1 be held on November 10th in AL113. The speaker will be Dr. Larry Smith discussing Careers in Technology: the Changing Marketplace -and as this man could make a talk about drying paint interesting, it will certainly be well worth being there.

There is nothing like a good family quarrel to bring out the worst in all of us. The national referendum on the ChFrlottetown Accord is a perfect , example of this. At this crucial moment in the history of the Canadian experiment, the citizens of this confederation are supposed to be debating *about their common aspirations and their competing views of this country. Some are, but many, including most of our national leaders and some of the contributors to this paper, are not. Instead, they are engaging in trench combat, seeking to assassinate the character of those disagree. This is especially true of those campaigning for the Yes side of the referendum. When former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau spoke out last week with his criticisms of the C h a r l o t t e t o w n A c c o r d , few analysts or politicians had the guts to take on his arguments directly. Acting as the id&l citizen in any democracy, Trudeau offered an incisive and detailed critique of flaws, as he saw them, in the Accord. He was rewarded for his concern about the future of this country with insults and slander. Prime Minister Brian Mulroney 1 has altemateJy attacked Trudeau for being too inflexible and too compromising. The current constitutional conundrum was set in motion because Trudeau was not successful at including ~inth&onstitutiorrin 1982, MuI- says.. But, Mulroney continues, T& compromised too much to the provinces in @ and Quebec in particular by includingthe a~reurdingdause”inthat~ OftiM Andthat’sb#nthemo6tQolite ~ofthef&merPrimeMinister th3ak+~cMswe&Morecommon is people ding him things like “an ipmn&angryoldman.” Jeffrey Smpson, writing in 7Ic

A classic rhetorical wchnique, but one that is easy to discredit Instead of examining Trudeau’s ideas in and of themselves, Simpson attacks the chzncter of Trudeau himsetf, questioning the “old man? competence to even speak on this topic. To their credit, the editorial writers for The Gbbe crnd Mcril have been one of the only patties to actually give Trudeau some of his due, despite using a shade of the same technique of obfuscation used by Simpson. The edited in last Saturday’s Globe at least treated Trudeau’s arguments in the same waythathehastreatedthe Charlo#etown accord: in a detailed Wion and with a dearth of mudslinging. “Yes” proponents are correct that the contlict brought on by this refarendum’could scar the couws psyche If they were really interested in m those eHuts. however. they wwldcancemntcmoreon~.~ rrymsnttand~on~dr;uzctsr .

On Monday night, after my requisite Hill Street 022ies fix, I was scanning the channels aimlessly trying to find something interesting HID? I’ve seen Tremhator 2 too many times for my own good already. Cinema? Dtm Jo-n and Melanie Griffith in the same movie. Cold sweats. ESPN? Golf. ‘INN? Mod Squad. Three hundred twenty channeIs of nothing an? Almost.

IhappenedcmtoaprogramcalIed Ethics in America, a series of panel diiions put together by WGBH, the , PBS affiliate in Boston. The series deals with the moral and ethical considerations of many aspects of modem life. On this particular episode, Harvard Law School ethics expert Charles Ogletree questtioned a panel about the morality of situations a combat soldier might face. I thought it would be only a mildly interesting program, until I saw who sat on the panel. Some of those present former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissenger, former C.I.A. Director Brent Scowcroft, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Colin Powell, former Secretary of Defence &spar Weinberger, General William I Westmoreland, U.S. Marine CoIonel and Congressional Medal of Honor recipient John Frederickson, wounded Vietnam Veteran and CMH recipient Lt. James Eckhardt, ABC Anchor and Canadian expatriate Peter jennings, and CBS Correspondent Mike Wallace. Since the program concerned ethics, I assume the producers felt compelled to include some members of the clergy. They did. Head Chaplain of the U.S. Armed Forces General Lawrence 0’ Connel, and Francis Cardinal Rizzi, former Archdiocese of Boston also sat on the panel. Not a lightweight panel. We’re taIking induskrial strength here. What impressed me the most was the fairness and mess of the questions,

Powell:

Absolutely. As a soldier, you are bound by the Code of Martial Justice, and the Code says that desertion is a crime.

Ogletree:

, Latey,. Ogle&ee asked Lt. Eckhardt if he would kill women or children if he deemed it necessary. Eckhardt held up his left arm, showing the audience that the arm, from the elbow on down, was missing. He turned to the audience and said, “I lost this in ‘68 when aneight-year+ girl threw a frag [fragmentation grenade] into my APC. What that taught me was that, in agueriIIawar,thereisnosuchthingas rulesofwar. IfIdeemapersorttobea clear and present threat to myself or my unit, I don’t care what sex or size or age . they are. They’re dead.” I was, needless to say, taken b y surprise by Lt. Eckhardt’s-little homily. The fury with which he spat out hisanswer was genuine. The agonizing looks of empathy from the other soldiers present were hart-wrenching, In short, that hour was probably the single most thought-provoking hour of television I have ever seen. The point, Jeff. What’s your point? My point is this: Television made it possible for millions of people to watch that discussion; not just the few hundred in the audience. In fact, in any other medium, that panel discussion would have been a flop. Print? Tooboring. Not enough immediacy. Film? Eight bucks admission, ten for parking, pay the sitter... Nope. As I have said mahy times in past peices I believe television is the freshest and most powerful medium extant. When used properly, it is true Art. High drama, tragedy, comedy: they can all be found in the box. Yet, it seems, television as medium has been scorned by almost everyone. Why? because of shows like who’s the Buss, and Gmwing Pailzs? Granted, a great deal of television programming is lightweight trash. Yet, every so often, a show or series will come along that more than makes up for such drivel.. HiI2 S&et Blues is one. Twin Peaks is another. Give television a chance. YOU might be surprised.

South Africa parallel To the editor, OnMarch171992,whiteSouth Africans voted in a referendum w h e t h e r t o e n d o r s e o r r e j e c t President de Klerk’s p o l i c y o f negotiat. ing a transition to a multi-racial political system. De Clerk called t h e r e f e r e n d u m f o l l o w i n g h i s National Party’s (NP) loss of the Potchefstroom by-election to the Conservative Party (KP). It was, needless to say, wholly illegitimate. All opponents of apartheid condemed the possibility of a whitesonly referendum. However, even the largest anti-apartheid organizations, the ANC and its COSATU affiliate, decided against attempting to disrupt the vote. Conseq u e n t l y , w h e n it became clear that the vote would go ahead, the ANC adopted a position in support of the ‘yes’ side. This was obviously not an uncritical e n d o r s e m e n t of de Klerk’s regime. It is true that the ANC’s attitude toward the government since entering negotiations deserves many criticisms Forgetting that it was mass protests and militant strikes that got them there in the first plae, the talks became the primary political vehicle. This enabled de K.lerk to disorient the movement and seize the initiative by simultan e o u s l y p u r s u i n g reform and repression. But it is also true that when they did find themselvesonthesidelines of de Xlerk’s referendum, it was clear to the ANC that it would only be defeated from the far right. De Clerk has used the threat of the KPand the ultra-right AWB to lever the terms of the negotiations further from the ANC’s position of one person, one vote. For when he talks about, a ‘truly democratic and indi: visible South Africa’, what he has in i mind is a two-tiered parliament with 1 a white veto, weighed voting, and : white local autonomy. The ANC ; would have lost even more ground on the fundamental issueof the fran’ chiie than they had already lost at CODESA if the far right had been bolstered by a ‘no’ vote. As subsequent events have s h o w n , b y s u p p o r t i n g t h e govemment position in the referendum in no way whatsoever hindered the

ANC in its opposition. The Boipatong massacre in June promoted t h e s u s p e n s i o n o f CODESA, and the general strike of 3 August showed the tremendous potential that COSATU h;ls to challenge the government. This example from South Africa is instructive for Canada. In both countries constitutional polit i c s tub on a fundamental Frinciple of democracy: there the franc h i s e , h e r e the r i g h t o f o p p r e s s e d nations to self-determination. Canada is founded upon the conquest and oppression of the First N a t i o n s and the Qu6b4cois. While the former have been largely marginalized, Quebec has had to be reluctantly accommodated. The entire constitutional history of Canada centres on ceaseless contestation over the status of Quebec. And parallel to this is the history of anti-Quebec bigotry, a poison that has divided English from French and that has consistently fuelled right wing politics in Canada. Look at the last twenty years. The War Measures Act and the deployment of troops in 1970; the intervention in the 1980 referendum in Quebec; the 1982 constitutional deal in which the rest of Canada reduced Quebec’s constitutional powers without their consent; the collapse of the Meech Lake Accord in 1990 under a tidal wave of antiQuebec hysteria in English Canada; and n o w a Canadian referendum t o determine their national fate. This de&al of Quebec’s right to self-determination has incontrovertibly bolstered the Right. The Reform Party, A P E C , and COR have been able to redefine the terms of the debate,. rewrite history, and pull the entire political spectrum in their direction - and not just with respect to Que-bet, but to immigration and ‘family values’ as well. The campaign to vote ‘no’ will be based ovwhelmingly on right wing anti-Quebec politics --just like the opposition to Meech Lake. Seeing t&s, Judy Rebick, just nine months ago, said that the position her organization took then was’ wrong. And yet now NAC has s o m e h o w made the same mistake again! They are in danger of offering a progressive cover for a thoroughly retrograde event. For if even Quebec i s denied minimal r e c o g n i tion from the Canadian state, then n o other group stands a chance. If we aim at a just society, then

we must face the decisive issues even when the conditions are less than ideal. The concessions embodied in the proposed agreement are feeble, but it is irresponsible to reject them. Do we affirm native selfgovernment and the inspiring events at Oka that enforced its recognition? Do we affirm Quebec’s right to self-determination and challenge the chauvinism pervading English Canada? Only when we say yes to these basic principles of dem o c r a c y - not to ‘national unity’ can we get on with building a better society. Take the inch and fight for a mile. Bryan Smyth

Well Dave, #I To the editor, I must take exception w i t h D a v e T h o m s o n ’ s o p i n i o n piece “Canada’s Constitution? Child’s Play!” (Oct. 2). Mr Thomson would have us vote no on October 26 because he feels that Quebec is getting too much out of *the Charlottetown agreement. So let’s take a look at what they are actually getting (something Mr Thomson conveniently neglects to do in his piece). Firstly, Quebec is acknowledged as being a distinct society. Mr Thomson already c o n c e d e s t h i s p o i n t . H o w e v e r , i f he feels that such a declaration gives the province “special status”, then I challenge him to give me examples o f l a w s w h i c h Q u e b e c w i l l be able to give me examples of laws which Quebec will be able to enact under C h a r l o t t e t o w n that it can not enact presently. Secondly,Quebec senators are given a veto over legislation dealing with, the French language and culture. Such a provision will affect no one in English Canada. Finally, Quebec gets a guaranteed 25% of the seats in the H o u s e o f C o m m o n s i n perpetuity. However, the province presently makes up more than 25% of the country’s population. Furthermore, it has already taken steps to increase its birthrate in order that it may, preserve its “distinct society”. Viewed in this context, the guarantee is merely a symbolic gain. Meanwhile, the West and the Maritimes got a reformed senate, thenatives got self-government and Bob Rae, on behalf of Ontario, managed to get h i s s o c i a l c h a r t e r . Keep in mind that Quebec was adamantly opposed to all three of these substantial reforms but still chose to concede on them. The Charlottetown agreement is acompromisebetween different regions of the country. In a compromise, no one side gets everything it wants. While legitimate reasons might exist to rejectthe agreement, to vote no simply out of spite for Quebec is meanspirited and vindictive. I just hope that Canadians will consider the importance of tolerance and respect when casting their ballot. Zahlr l3hanjl ZB Act. Sci. Mr. Thumsun responds: MU. Bhanji: Vindictiveness dws not enter into the question. If this package were to somehow miraculously end all of Qu&bec’s demands, I might reconsider my position. However, Mr. &wxssa has stated that this “agreement io renew the consfitutilm” is but the first oj many ambiguous demands te be sutisfid, OT else. One wonders how tht2 rest of the distinct cultures in Canada have survived as lung as they hwve+

g a g i n g i n t h e a r d u o u s t a s k o f enlightening the ‘No’ side my ears are immediately insulted with the limpid statement “The proposed changes to the constitution transfer too much power to the provinces and will create a loose collection of governing bodies instead of one strongcountrywithonestronggovernment”. “Federalism” you bellow. My resonse is of course to ask you to be specific about which power transfers are of most concern and you have no response because you don’t know one damn thing about the agreement. Oh sure you bandy about the political jargon that your mentors spit with regularity t o any media source that w i l l p r i n t them, but you can’t even have a discussion with a simpleton like myself about the direct affects of any particular part of the deal. It’s just plain embarrassing. I have some strong reservations about p a r t s o f t h e a c c o r d ( n o n e o f which I would provide to the vacuum that constitutes the ‘No’ side) but when I look at the whole I find it not just acceptable for Canada but I find it GOOD FOR CANADA. Ihavedonemuchinvestigationinto the accord and am fairly well informed and I do not see the “blackmail” or the doom and gloom that you preacha “Yes’vote would mean. U n b e l i e v a b l y not one o f y o u c a n g i v e m e a specific example so that my defense could begin. I can defend every part of the accord(yes, even the parts that I have strong reservations about are defensible in a convincing manor) but I am never afforded the opportunity since the ‘ N o ’ s i d e i g n o r a n c e i s s o v a s t . Do your damn homework before you e x p r e s s y o u r ‘expert’ opinion and don’t waste my time until you do Probably most pitiful is the way you continue to cling to the incessant rantings of that woeful old fart who’s National Energy Program b i r t h e d the present need for a ‘Triple E ’ senate and who did more to alienate Quebec than any other Prime Minister in the history of Canada. Underneath that admittedly c h a r i s m a t i c veneer i s a tired o l d m a n w h o d o e s n ’ t realize that p o l i t i c s t o d a y i s m u c h too c o m p l i cated for his limited and out-dated faculties. All Premiers, the P r i m e Minister of Canada, the leader of the official opposition, the leader of the NDP, almost every motable English personality and many notable French personalities female and male, and of course yours truly think that this deal is good for Canada and are in direct and total d i s a g r e e m e n t w i t h y o u r dotaring demigod. Of course you also have the confused and insincere words of PrestonBaarely Managing to lend credibility and authenticity to the ‘No’ side thus proving that nothing could be better for Canada than voting YES. My Canqda includes Quebec and British Columbia (and all the others).Thesepruposedchangesare good changes, necessary and important. Don’t vote in ignoranceand you will vote YES. I am going to.

The players, the tunes, the fascination:.. it’s killin’ me “There ain’t no answer. There ain’t going to be any answer. There never has been an answer. That’s the answer.” -- Gertrude Stein I’m not exactly sure what 01’ Gert was referring to in the above quote, but it certainly seems to suit our current national unity “crisis.” The search f o r an a n s w e r , a n y a n s w e r , seems to be the major concern for our country at present. On the surface, it seems easy e n o u g h to come up with an answer. That is so because in this referendum, as in all referenda, a question will be asked. “Do you agree that the Constitution of Canada should be renewed on the basis of the agreement reached o n A u g u s t 28,1992?” Simply enough, your answer will be “yes” o r “ n o . ” H o w e v e r , m a n y C a n a d i a n s are finding it difficult to make a decision. God knows I am. The amount of information is overwhelming and the flaming rhetoric is unbelievable. There is a stack of newspapers and magazines at the e n d o f m y b e d c o n t a i n i n g reports and stories that I’m trying to ingest in order to come up with an answer. Sometimes I wish I wasn’t such a media/politico junkie which entails feeling obligated to examine, analyze, and discuss most anything that comes along. I’m not sure when I became so cynical and jaded,.but the “crisis” that we are embroiled in has certainly pushed me over the edge. Nevertheless, I feel compelled (COM: PELLED!!) to subject others to the ramblin’ in my mind concerning the upcoming referend u m ( p l e b i s c i t e , w h a t e v e r ) . H e r e g o e s : (deep breath) The first thing that comes to mind a b o u t t h e w h o l e t h i n g i s not what is actually in the agreement, but the players i n v o l v e d . Mulroney, McLaughlin, Wells, Parizeau M e r c r e d i , M a n n i n g , R e b i c k , Trudeau B o u r a s s a , C h r e t i e n , B o b Rae t o o Yes or no, we love you! Sorry. Sorry. Sorry about that, but my mind is turning into mush AND THE BLOODY THING IS STILL OVER TWO WEEKS AWAY!!! Sorry once again- have a drink, have a smoke... Ah. Now, where were w e ? Y e s , the p l a y e r s i n v o l v e d . Some people feel that seeing as all three major political party leaders, all ten premiers and both territorial leaders, as well as the head of the A s s e m b l y o f F i r s t N a t i o n s endorse the deal that “yes” is the obvious a n s w e r . H o w e v e r , s o m e people w o u l d v o t e “no” for exactly the same ‘reasoning. The eclectic crew above stirs up emotions both good and bad. The “no” side is also an eclectic bunch ranging from Jacques Parizeau to Preston Manning and including Judy Rebick and ultimately Pierre Trudeau. You may admire and respect representatives from eitherside of the issue, but it would be impossible to respect (though maybe admire in a sick and twisted way) everyone on one side. Although united for this particular event, many of the allies in this battle, from either side, w i l l r e v e r t t o b e i n g m o r t a l e n emies once it ends. The modem Canadian version of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse could definitely b e d r a w n f r o m t h o s e i n v o l v e d i n t h e debate. And I’m not entirely sure which Sixheaded Hydra I’d like to face in a Constitut i o n a l s t r u g g l e t o t h e d e a t h . O f c o u r s e , the hydra has the ability to regenerate its decapitated heads so the selection of heads is futile. So what is to be done? Do we select the side which contains more people we like, or do we set up some sort of high-tech program in which approval/disapproval ratings are factored and calculated resulting in our most

suitable answer? D o y o u k n o w ? Does a n y b o d y ? I g u e s s w e c o u l d and s h o u l d examine the-issues, but at this moment in time I’m l i s t e n i n g t o a high-speed crazed dance mix that makes Napalm Death (or the Chipmunks) sound like Enigma on Ecstasy. Consequently, the issues are the farthest thing from my mind. Anyway, it seems that the most intrigue (as w&l a s f i r e a n d b r i m s t o n e ) c o m e s from who is involved and not necessarily what they are talking about. The cast of characters seems to mutate daily, making it all the m o r e c o n f u s i n g f o r f a n a t i c s l i k e myself. For example, two weeks ago the names of Diane Wilhelmy and Andre T r e m b l a y , t w o senior government advisors, were very prominent in the news f o r what may o r m a y n o t have been said in a private telephone conversation which was surreptitiously recorded. Once the t r a n s c r i p t was p u b l i s h e d , i t revealed that Mile. Wilhelmy and M. Tremblay felt that Premier Bourassa had settled for too little during the negotiations and had in fact, “caved in”. M. Tremblay”s res p o n s e c o n s i s t e d of anger and he stated that he felt that he had been “raped”. Despite these r e v e l a t i o n s , “ l ’ a f f a i r e W i l h e l m y ” w a s s o o n o l d n e w s d u e t o the reemergence of f o r m e r P r i m e M i n i s t e r P i e r r e Trudeau f o m h i s Montreal mausoleum. Mansion! His Maclean’s statements about Quebec’s “master blackmailers” were the new talk of the country. Debates raged on whether he had a valid point or just wanted to appear o n y e t a n o t h e r magazine c o v e r . There can be no argument that Trudeau has no place in this unity “crisis”. lt seems that all former, present and furure politicians are s o m e h o w i n v o l v e d on either side. The “yes” contigent has trotted out both R o b e r t S t a n f i e l d a n d Willian Davis to stump for their side. (Ask your old Conservative parents who they are.} Mario Drumont, theQuebe&iberalsmiIitantyouthwingpresident, has been quite prominent on the “no” side. Alas, it seems the nation will wait in vain f o r Dave Martin Despite his referendum experience the Fed president has yet to enter the debate. Two recent entrants onto the unity scene are A l l e n T a y l o r , R o y a l B a n k C h a i r man, and Edward Neufeld, t h e R o y a l ’ s c h i e f economist. They released a report stating that Quebec’s succession from Canada (actual separation, not just a “no” vote) would create economic catastrophe in Canada. Of course their “neutrality” relating to the referendum came immediately into question by those on the “no” side, who feel, it seems, that the economy will be worse if “yes” triumphs. And while .a11 Canadians worry abouthigher unemployment and lower i n c o m e i t s h o u l d be noted that these gentlem e n , a l o n g w i t h t h e i r b a n k i n g and b i g b u s i n e s s c o l l e a g u e s , stated that the F r e e Trade deal with the U.S. would be beneficial to Canada. Hmmm. We can all rest assured that right until Referendum Day, there will be waves of people, famous and not, elected and not, and intelligent and not, who will get involved in o r d e r t o s a v e t h e c o u n t r y (danunit!!) b y attempting to convince to vote “yes” or “no”. The prospect of this really frightens me as I don’t know whether I can keep track of everyone involved. Is it possible that every Canadian w i l l receive t h e i r alloted t i m e o n NewsWorld to express their beefs and beliefs? Perish the thought. I can’t help, but feel that Mu&Music should get involved by having one of their oh-so-cute contests in order to come up with a c o n s t i t u t i o n a l “c&i!? t h e m e s o n g . Early nominations could include: “Proud to be a Canadian” by The Dayglo Abortions, “Give it Away” by Red Hot Chili Peppers, “Everything I Do...” by Bryan Adams, “Remedy” by The Black Crowes. My selection, induced without a doubt by Referendum madness and a Constitution overdose, consists of the live version of “St@ mata” by Minstry, which culminated in the rage, “Fuck you, Fuck me. Fuck all of you, They told me nothing but lies! Lies! Lies!” Yes? No? I don’t know. What I do know is bars are allowed to open on Referendum Day. Enjoy.

Senate chamber would make a great movie theatrti To answer the call of Dave Thomson in last week’s Imprint, I am going to give my general opinion on the upcoming referendum on renewed federalism. I will keep it general as I have just recently received the exact Charlottetown agreement and so I am just going on the summaries I have read in various newspapers and what been on the news. Tostartoff,Ihavetosaythatpersonally the agreement looks good to me and encourage everybody to vote “yes.” Not that I f u l l y s u p p o r t e v e r y t h i n g agreed to by the first ministers et al., but in the true spirit of Canadian negotiation it is a good compromise which satisfies the d i v e r s e nature of Canada regions and peoples. I also think that i t i s w r o n g t o t h i n k that a “no” vote merely means that you don’t l i k e t h i s agreement. I believe it also means that you think that the current system of g o v e r n m e n t i s s u p e r i o r t o w h a t w a s agreed upon on August 28. So, with that in mind, I hope that e v e r y b o d y gets a copy of the agreement and reads it td make an informed decision on October 26. (Incidently, for all the computer l i t e r a t e p e o p l e , y o u c a n g e t y o u r own copy through anonymous ftp at watserv1 under the directory \ pub.) The exact wording of the text isn’t that i m p o r t a n t t o m e p e r s o n a l l y as is the general spirit of the agreement I think we are trying to agree on, but as it would put many people at ease, it would be nice for the legal text to be completed b y the referendum date. NowTon to the Senate. As I said before, a “no” vote to me means that you think that the current system is better than the one

a g r e e d t o i n C h a r l o t t e t o w n . A n d I think the Senate we have n o w i s a b i g w a s t e o f t i m e (although I w o u l d h a v e r a t h e r j u s t a b o l i s h e d it and make the Senate chamber a movie theatre). The modified Senate will at least be closer to the “triple-E” model. Dave asks “have webeen marching in the streets demanding a “triple-E” senate.” Well, here in central Canada, of course nobody really cared about the upper house, but if you look at Canada as whole (that’s from Newfoundland to British Columbia), a lot of people felt the various regions of Canada weren’t properly represented. I do remember a farmer in Alberta cutting his wheat field to show “EEE” and of course the variouscommittees whichcombed across the country showed this as well. What are the benefits for the average Canadian from t h i s a g r e e m e n t ? W e l l , a p a r t from the really good things which are part of the agreement itself, a Canada where all people are working together for a better future -- that’s good enough for me. As for thequestionof whether Quebec would really separate, lets hope we never get to that point. But if it does, I agree that a quasi separation i.e. sovereignty association just doesn’t hold water; it’s either part of Canada or separate. Of course, this would be terrible in all aspects for both entities, but as shown by the Lindros affair, some people in Quebec will stand by what they believe even if it goes against all rational thought, In the last p a r a g r a p h t h e q u e s t i o n o f v o t i n g “ n o ” j u s t to vote against the current government is raised. I think this is just plain a really bad idea. The next federal election has to be held within the next year and everybody will have a chance to shoot down the current government. But for now we are just voting on this agreement so I hope that everybody will keep the vote concentrated to just that.

Inside the store, according to the K-W Recorri, one can find for sale a b m k by Fred Leuchter thatclaimsthatthegasch.ambersatAuschwitz were never used for mass killing.

The Kitclmer- Waterloo Record recently carried a letter to the editor by Paul Fromm, director of Canadian Association for Free Expression, Inc. This letter defended neoNazi publisher Ernst Zundel, saying, “Zundel was dragged through the courts for nine years . . .

A l t h o u g h Rothe has claimed, “I have not seen a neo-Nazi before,” according to the R e c o r d , he attended a recent “victory party” for Ernst Zundel, and Zundel was recently sighted at his store. When I asked Rothe i f h e k n e w w h a t Irving would speak on, he claimed, “Irving c o m e s t o s p e a k o n G e r m a n y . . . o n l y Germ a n y . ” When I pointed out that this was false, that Irving actually spends a significant p o r t i o n o f h i s s p e e c h e s d i s c u s s i n g how the Holocaust is a hoax, he repeated, “No, that is w r o n g - I r v i n g o n l y speaks a b o u t G e r m a n y . ” H o w e v e r , t h e p o s t e r s Rothe himself has put up belie this claim - they list the Holocaust as a topic of Irving’s speech.

According to analyst Chip Berlet of Politital Research Associates, Mullins is quite simply, “the most vicious anti-Semite on the face of the planet.” EustaceClarenceMullins,bominl923, is the author of a biography of Ezra Pound (a copy exists in the University of Waterloo library). But he is also the author of numerous truly b%rre tracts published by small Christian publishers. Some of these, like the excerpt r e c e n t l y posted and then removed b y ICitchmer store owner Rothe, are critiques of the lyking system. Berlet says, “Mullins masl&@an&&i@ismwithacritiqueofthe [VS.] Federal Reserve System.” Ina 1952 b&, Mullins blamed Paul Warburg Bernard Baruch, and other U.S. Jews f o r d r o w n i n g A m e r i c a n s i n d e b t . A c cording to Mullii, The Federal Resenre Act of 1913 put the nation’s banking +zlves in the handi of the “Jewish International Bankers” for the purpose of c-outa plan for world dic@torship. , In a 1955 article enti tied, “Jews mass p o i s o n A m e r i c a n c h i l d r e n , ” Qullins claimed that the gdi~vaccine, invented by Jonas Salk, was a poison because it contains live polio germs.

Rothe sells the Leuchfm Rqxwf in his store, a book purporting to be an engineer’s refutation of the existence of gas chambers in Poland. (David Irving also uses Leuch,ter’s report to support his claims.) ’ WhatRothewillnottellyou,however, is that Fred Leuchter is not an engineer. Rothe also won’t tell you that, according to the Boston Globe, Leuchter admitted to illegally collecting 20 pounds of building and soil samplesin Poland, and tha~Lwcht& “analysis” has been thoroughly rebutted in a repoti by French pharmacist Jean-Claude Pressac. Pressac “noted that Leuchter never looked at documents in the Auschwitz Museum, and failed to study German blueprints of the gas chambers.” Leuchter is a selfdescribed expert in the construction of execution machines. With his false credentials, he convinced authorities in several states in the US. to let him construct execution machinery for their prisons.

Illinois terminated his contract after determining that his machine for injecting cyanide would cause prisoners unnecessary pain. Then, in October 1990, Leuchter was . charged with fraud in Massachusetts. It was

revealed that he had only a bachelor’s degree in history, and was not licensed to practice engineering in Massachtisetts. Injune, 1991, to avoid a trial in which h~wouldsurelyhavebeenconvicted,Leuchter admitted that, “I am not and have never been registered as a professional engineer,” and that he had falsely represented himself as one. Under the consent agreement, Leuchter agreed to stop “using in any manner whatsoever the title ‘engineer,‘” and to sfop distribution of the Leuchter report. Despite the agreement, one can still obtain copies of the report from Rothe’s store in Kitchener, AccordingtoTheBosfon Globe,Leuchter was deported from Britain in 1991. “Leuchter’s admissions of lying to promote his business i.nviolationofMassachusettslaw shouldserve to discredit Leuchter wherever he travels,” said Leonard Zakim, a spokesperson for the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith.

Paul Fromm claims to be the director of a group called “Canadian Association of Free Expression.” While the name sounds innocuous, the truth is darker. According to investigative journalist Russ Bellant, Fromm helped found the Canadian neo-Nazi organization Western Guard. In a 1983 interview with a Tmnfo Star reporter, Fromm was caught dissembling. He said he “never had any come&on” with the WestemGuard,but The Sfar accountrevealed I that Fromm himself had had a letter published in the Star in February 1973 that stated I8 . . . in May, 1972, many members, myself included, left the Western Guard . . . .” Asked to explain the discrepancy, Fromm said in a Star interview that it was “a matter of seman-

tics*”

In Julian Sher’s 1983 account of the Ku Klux Klan, Fromm is reported as saying that belief of a supreme race “is a good idea.” Remarks like this caused him to be kicked out of the federa! Progressiveconservative Party. In September, 1991, ‘I31e Star reported that Fromm was ejected from a Tqronto meeting on race relations after he blurted out, “Scalp them,” while a native Canadian was speaking. In April, 1992, The Sfar reported on Fromm’s 1990 speech before the Heritage Front, a neo-Nazi organization advocating, white supremacy. According to The Star, Fromm told the neo=Nazi group, ‘TVe’re all on the same side.” Fromm later c&ned in a Star arUe that he hadn’t known about the Heritage Front’s n-Nazi views. But Bernie Farber of the Canadian Jewish Con-s disputes this. “Hehad to know,%rber &d. “There was a Nazi flag with swastikas, about ten feet 1long and five feet tall, just to his right.

Rugby team loses to Graphs and Gaels

Warriurs0, Queens 38 What a nightmare! Queen’s 38, Waterloo 0. Our Golden Gael nemesis from Kingston handed the Warriors their worst loss since another defeat to Queen’s in 1987.1 Some bitter distinction goes to fullback Brian Anderson who was named the Warrior player-of-thegame. The line up w a s s i m i l a r t o t h e team at Guelph w i t h a few notable exceptions. Big man MikeTemi was b a c k i n at s e c o n d r o w b u t w a s n o t 100 per cent in the line-outs due to two v e r y bruised hands. “ R o b o p r o p ” D a l e F i n l e y was called upon to fill the big boots left open in front row as Sandro Bassenese was out due to a painful ankle injury. Randy Martin was moved from seco n d r o w t o flanker to complete the ailing forward back-row. An awesome injury at Guelph had sidelined open-side flanker Keith Peck for at least two games. The skull-cracking collision s a w a large amount of blood from two cuts around the eye be replaced by a large quantity of stitches. (The battered correspondent shrugged it off to do the post-game write-up; h e n c e t h e e r r o r that appeared f o r the result of the Guelph game in last Friday’s Imprint.) I could go on with feeble excuses for tie humiliating loss to Queen’s, but the game was decided by their strong teamwork.

Cruellv, the Waterloo support in the finalLalf was inconsist& at best while Queen’s always seemed to have extra men in position to control the flow of the ball. Three converted tries by the Golden Gaels in the second half, combined with no Warrior scoring, gave the final score, a lop-sided Waterloo 0 to Queen’s 38. The second game was also a disappointment due to the final score, but for very different reasons. The Warrior’s junior varsity team missed numerous penalty kicks for potentially game winning points. The fact that Queen’s s e c o n d teams u s u a l l y p o u n d t h e i r o p p o s i tion was bitter solace as the junior

Warriors fell short with a single p o i n t margin at 7-8. The Waterloo team outplayed the Kingston cronies in the majority of play on the field, but were zero-

Putting last week’s disappointing results behind them, the Athena field hockey team travelled to Lamport StadiuminToronto to play their first east-west crossover games. Three wins in one weekend gave the Athenas t h e i r first taste of

Everyone on the field, from goalie to forward, participated in the relaying of information. This increaseineffectivecommunication enabled the players to make smarter passes and to inform each other o f advancing ‘opponents. The Athenas were able to penetrate Laurentian’s circle many times, but seem to fall just short of putting the ball into the net. Finally, with five minutes left, rookie centre Rachelle Brohman popped the ball past the opposing goalie for her first varsity goal. Waterloo held the lead for the remainder of regulation time and claimed their first win of the season. The team was elated with its performance. ‘I We were a hard-cut-

Three crews finished a strong third in their events: heavy men’s four, lightweight men’s four, and women’s double. Other crews row-

Next stop for the oarspeople is the familiar Henley Course in St. Catharines. This will be a sort of dress rehearsal for the championship, and will see six crews racing, two single scullers, plus an entry into the varsi ty eight, which will combine both

by Todd Coulter Wmfior hockey und Renee Geo~ucopoulos lmpfint staff A gruelling two weeks of training camp have come to an end for over 55 Waterloo Warrior hockey hopefuls. The team made its final selections this week while prepari n g to meet the Brock B a d g e r s a t 8 p.m. tonight in the tenth annual Oktoberfest tournament starting today at Columbia Ice Field. Head coach Don McKee is ext r e m e l y o p t i m i s t i c a b o u t the team’s chances this year, after enjoying a decent 2-1-l record over the first four exhibition games of the season. The eight-team tournament, cohosted with the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks, will feature a championship game on Saturday afternoon. “This to urnament is gaining the respect that the Naismith has for basketball,” says McKee. Most teams, have their rosters chosen at thisstageof thepre-seasonand need that final tune-up before the regular season begins. On S u n d a y m o r n i n g , October 11 at 10 a.m., the Warriors will host an exhibition wheelchair hockey game against the Tri-City Storm as part of this weekend’s Oktoberfest Tournament. Physically disabled athletes f r o m t h e Kitchener, Waterloo, and Cambridge areas are the driving force behind the Storm. The Warrior team will consist of Mike Bishop, assistant Warrior coach and former goalie; Todd Coulter, former captain; and four other as yet unmentioned current team members.

The game should prove to be very entertaini n g - no protective equipment and contact allowed. Last Thursday night, October 1, the Warriors opened their exhibition schedule by pummelling the Ryerson Rams 9-3, thanks in part to a three-goal effort by sophomore left-winger Greg Allen and three points by centreman John Williams.

Fit Tip of the Week: For fitness’- an important part of healthy, active living - follow the FIT formula: F is for frequency, I is for intesity and T is for time. FREQUENT Fitness cannot be stored. Regular physical activity - at least three times per week or every other day - will help you gain and maintain a good level of fitWSS.

INTENSITY: Your activity sessions should be invigorating and refreshing not exhausting. Use the “talk test” to make . sure you don’t overdo it. You should be able to converse comfortably with a companion and be active at the same time. If you can’t, you’re working too hard. TIME: Aim for 15 minutes of vigorous aerobic activities such as hockey or jogging + and 30 minutes of moderate activities like brisk walking, cycling or swimming. If you are just starting out, try to make walking, dancing, or other enjoyable activities part of your healthy lifestyle.

timistic of implementing programs by the winter term. Currently, the Accessibility Committee, which has now been established for three terms through the Campus Recreation Advisory Council, is meeting to tackle some of the ideas and concerns which arise, A needs assessment of the weight room will be done to determine whether any modifications may be done. A wheelchair treadmill has already been purchased and is ready to be used in the lower level weight room. Thenext Accessibility Committee Meeting is on Tuesday, October 13 at 4:30 p.m. in PAC 2045. All are welcome to attend.

Here’s hoping everyone has a fun and relaxing Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend. Don’t forget that the PAC will be closed on Thanksgiving day, so just in case you consume a few too many calories (this is inevitable for Thanksgiving -no need to feel guilty), the PAC will reopen Tuesday morning at its normal building hours. Have fun!

A Night Of Chill Blue continued from page 1 Nonetheless, there came a point when the Chills were ready to leave the nest. “Over the last three years we’ve been based in London, England. We started this tour with a month-long tour of New Zealand and that’s the first time we’ve done that since about ‘86.“ Nonetheless, they remain dear to the hearts of their former country. Speaking about radio airplay iri New Zealand, Phillips said “It’s easier for the Chills now than for any other local band. The main (i.e. commercial) will say, Look we are playing local music, we’re playing the Chills. And we had Submarine Bells go to Number One and “Heavenly P o p Hit” go to Number Two, and the new album’s been played a l o t . ” For the new album Bomb, the Chills recorded in L.A.,‘which was a new experience for them. However, Phillips professed to be unfazed by any culture shock. “Once they put me in the studio they can put me anywhere; there was no sort of California influence seeping through the walls.‘% he happy with the way Sofi Bomb turned out? “Yeh, we learnt from our mistakes on the last one and I’m much happier with Soft Bomb than with Submarine &z&s+ It’s a lot stronger. It would be a mistake for us td go into the studio and try to capture the live thing cause if you miss you miss by a mile. ” 0ne theme that seemed more prevalent on the new album was the meaning of being a pop singer. “ N o t a s m u c h o n t h e n e w album as you’d think. Everybody thinks that’s what ‘Entertainer’ is about.... it’s about being fifteen years old and having your driver’s license for the first time but not having a girlfriend and so you drive aroundcouples all the time.” “Song for Randy Newman etc.” is another story, however. On that song. Phillips recites a litany of performers who have never received the attent i o n thev deserve: Briin Wilson, Syd Barrett, Scott Walker, Nick Drake. Does he feel the Chills have been u n d u l y u n r e c o g n i z e d . 3 “Yeh. For all the indications of how big the Chills were first going to be, it’s still frustrating to be struggling to get through to an audience. We know there’s a big audience out there, but a lot of the stuff, there’s no chance to hear it. We d o n ’ t k n o w w h a t m o r e w e c a n do. We need one song that’s going to suddenly click, like “Heavenly Pop Hit” but bigger. “It’s really really hard. We just found out yesterday that the sixweek European tour we were going

The original male monster from the id. “The band thing is not working and I can’t afford to do it in the band anymore, so I don’t know what’s g o i n g t o h a p p e n n o w . ” M i g h t fhe Chills revert to an ever-shifting lineup of studio musicians? “Well, on the musical scene I’ll still k putting out music and in a way it’s been quite good that SO$ Bomb p r o v e d that I can pull ( t h e k i n d of arrangemenf described) off.... and have i t s o u n d l i k e a b a n d . That’s very much how it’ll be in the future. “It’s just th&t after twelve ye&s hard work we’re actually going backwards now, I think the new album sold better than Submarine Bells in the States but in Europe it’s sold less than half of what Submarim Bells sold.“. As a more pleasant ending to the interview; Phillips referred to the enormous backlog of unreleased Chills material. Describing his most

format is a remixed version of the Bra& Words album. At this point a burly stagehand interjected (“Ten minutes, Martin!“) and Phillips was off to the stage. Having loved each of the four Chills albums in turn, but never having seen them live before, I was m&e c u r i o u s t h a n a n y t h i n g . else. Each successive album has seemed to be even more of a purely studio creation than the previous one, so it was anyone’s guess as to how the more &cent material would translate to the stage. H a p p i l y , P h i l l i p s n e i t h e r attemptedtorecreate thestudiosound gor to fashion some sort of cliched overaggresive “live sound. m He simply played the songs, and the current version of the ever-shifting Chills lineup (Phase XIII) was strong enough to blend the immediacy of a live performance with the subtlety of Phillips’ w o r k . The most pleasant sure prise of the show was just how little was lost in the transfeiral of s o n g s f r o m studio to stage. Besides Phillips, the Chills currently j include a rhythm section, a second g u i t a r i s t , dnd a k e y b o a r d i s t , a l l o f whom contributed backing vocals as well, Most of the songs, such as “Part Past-Part Fiction” or “Sanctuary,” retained all the subtle complexity of the recorded versions, but were stronger and more fullbodied. One of the great things about Martin Phillips and the Chills is the way they casually confound theconventions of pop songcraft; this too was intact during their live show. T h e k e y b o a r d s t a k i n g o v e r t h e melodic leads, the winding song struttures (that somehow almost always arrive at a chorus), the recurrance of odd musical motifs-- all these were highlightsof the set.

After deflecting a shameless offer to relieve him of some of this unreleased material (“Obviously I get asked that all the time,” he said gently); Phillips did touch on sume other pet projects. “We’ve got a lot of stuff that may be done through the fanclub, the International Chills Enthusiasts or ICE club-- studio demos, alternate live takes, stuff that we want to make available to people who want them.” One project that may turn up in such a

The most striking aspect of the performance was Martin Phillips as a vocalist and showman. Phillips is one o f t h o s e l i v e p e r f o r m e r s who seems to relive a song’s emotions as

he recounts them, and manages to pull these feelings off brilliantly whether the song is a delicate lullaby, (“Effloresce and Deliquesce”), or a terse rocker, (“Familiarity Breeds Contempt”). Indeed, one of the Chills most popular songs is “I Love My Leather Jacket”, a song that on the surface is merely a great rock anthem but is, in reality, a very tender poem about the loss of deceased drummer Mart i n B u l l w h o p e r i s h e d in the mideighties after a long battle with leukaemia. It was thus both fortuituous and appropriate that Phillips should choose to end the show with “Leather Jacket”. The song delights fans, embraces the Chills many emotions and tastes, and fulfills a performance by a band that still honours all of it’s past work enthusiastically. It’d be a sad demise for such a great band should we not get another opportunity to see them playlive,butonthiseveningPhillips proved in the face of frustration that intelligent rock and roll is always made greater when played straight from the heart, With bands such as the House of Love now beginning to cover Chills songs, here’s hoping a wider audience will be ready to care.

by Sue Forrest Imprint staff We all know feminists don’t laugh-- they can’t because it would compromise their politics. Comedy as we know it has been used as yet another tool of oppression, rising out of a menstreamed dominant culture, inherently patriarchical and not only relying on but enforcing damaging stereotypes of perceived lessers in order to propagate their foul politics. I have a book to prove it. It was given t6 me during the festival of the longest night (not to be confused with Christmas) by yet another self-identifying feminist. It’s entitled “Women’s Glib” and on the cover is one of those strident women bellowing, “go ahead, make me laugh.” It’s all a conspiracy and feminists are hip to their evil tricks. Obviously it was going to be a night of male-bashing, the stuff those feminists say is degrading when men and women-hatingwomen laugh is going to be called “feminist humour,” equality my ass, they want to trade places, well mind you, not that men have it so good anyway.

A critique of the world around us which does not focus on men, neither as heroes nor as perpetrators of all evil? Questioning the consistency of stating sexism is evil but refusing to change sexist practices? Affirming common experiences of women in joking about the tribulations of the menstrual cycle? Refusing to enforce the convenient invisibility of groupings like lesbians, drag q&e- and older women? Or, as Clinton kept punctuating, “the courage to be logical.” And seen, and heard. Clinton will be featured on PBS during the tabulation of the US election results November 3, alongside political analysts from Time magazine and The New York Times. Clinton climaxed her N-minute monologue with an invitation for all to join her in Washington, DC. on April 25, in a march for gay, lesbian and bisexual rights, pondering aloud whether the bi portion would be half or twice the population of the other marchers.

The rest of the band kept up nicely, with new drummer John Richardson starting to find his niche after only several weeks behind the drum kit. A couple of minor complaints might be made. For one thing, the absence of any background vocals occasionally leaves Blurton’s otherwise formidable voice sounding a little stark. And the show suffered a bit of a lull, midway through, when the band chose to lump together several of their longer, less uptempo songs. * Still, those who persevered were treated to a rousing finale, from “Pat’s Decline”, and “Picture Perfect”, up until the extended raunch-outs of two early tracks: “Northwinds” and “Slowdance”.

Set in Quebec in summer 1992, the challenges are feminism in practice and strife between Quebec and Ontario. And it’s a comedy. “It’s a classic social farce, which addresses serious questions with humour and wit,” says publicity director Kate Holt, “when we chose this show to open the season, we had no way of knowing how relevant it would be to what’s going on now, not only nationally but locally.” Tension in the play arises from the daughter of a feminist wbman wanting to marry a nice Ontario boy rather than the

Weak contains much of the same turbulence and obscure lyrical imagery that Despised profemed; however, weak merely plods along, snly coming together for one brilliant moment. Weak flounders about in its hardcore, laced with too many progressive rock bridges, until it arrives at “Clean Slate.” Suddenly, aI1 of the band’s usage of stop/starts congeal and the p r o g r e s s i v e r o c k bridges lead flawlessly and directly into vocalist Aaron Stauffer, cover star o f S u p e r c h u n k ’ s “ F i s h i n g ” s i n gle, and a sure bet for Sassy’s “one. -- to-watch”-dam, sing-along c h o r u s .

.

Dear Mark, Adam and Philip Having r e c e n t l y l i s t e n e d t o “ P l a y M o r e Music”, your third album proper on Nettwerk, we feel that we should at least try and offer some constructive criticism towards what appear to be some obvious leaps in logic the band commits rather than dismiss you altogether. The various topics you champion on this album as well as previous ones are considered “worthy issues” by most liberals, however they all rest on extremely dubious foundations. Let us step by step discuss the topics you have chosen to expound upon on your albums and in concert.

t

GunControkTheargumentthatweneed gun controlbecause there are many instances of homicide and other illegal ‘actions as a result of guns is a non-starter. First of all,

criminals who commit crimes with guns are obviously not going to let gun control laws stand in their way - that’s why they’re called criminals. It seems that your position on gun control is in direct conflict with your antifascist position. If you advocate greater personal liberty, tihy would you want to promote the control of guns by a state. A state with this much power is a threat to the freedom of every individual. You can’t have it both ways. In many ways, your argument for controlling guns is similar to the argument Used by many conservatives in controlling free speech. The idea that words are d a m a g i n g to the moral fibre of a society is obviously bullshit. Similarly, trying to eliminate guns will not solve the problem of individuals committing violence. Even on a very isolated “crime of passion” base, if a husband is going to kill his wife,.whether it’s a gun or a bat or a kitchen knife, it’s going to get done. The original intent in your American constitution regarding the right to bear arms was in order that a militia could be formed ’ against an outside force or an oppressive rected. ing yourselves look ever so cool.

as it is for certain animals. However, the Use of animals for medical research has provided many breakthroughs including the insulin that many diabetics need to survive. Many of the research done reveals no such miracles, and the animals die with basically no gain to human kind, but it is the right of Man as it is every other animal to kill to sunrive and improve one’s given lot in life? Are we somehow bound to act separate from nature and according to some notion of morality? If so, there is nothing in any well planned ethical view that gives animals the right to not be killed. Those writers on the “cutting edge” of anhaI rights suchas Tom Regan have completely ill-planned moral systems that do not survive any strong criticism.

nessinghisact. The deconstructionof “fuck”, “shit” or “Catholicism” takes place on a level far above the level of the courts trying to convict Bruce. His references to scatology or copulation, the history of religion and where those topics crossover into the area of law is unparalleled in the area of stand-up comedy

Bruce has multiple recordings on vinyl out and it would have beennice to see some of his

The other disappointment is the booklet included in the set. A mere eight pages, included are various accounts by comedians and other artists including George Carlin, EricBogosian andTiny Timprattlingonabout h o w g r e a t Bruce w a s . F i n e , b u t h o w a b o u t some back up info on Bruce and a few more photos. It’s hard to complain about the packaging because the actual material is so great, but Ryko could have spent a little more time indesigningthispackagesothatbuyers would be getting more than the actual performance. itself.

I urn. . . hny Bruce. - Lenny l3ruce

To do justice to any recording of Lenny Bruce is impossible. Not only because of his e n o r m o u s i m p o r t a n c e i n t e r m s o f s o c i a l satire, but also because Bruce himself realized that only AMY can do Lenny. The inability to describe what it is that Lenny Bruce the “comedian” does is the problem any individual faces in trying to transfer the medium and the message on to others. That being-said, the best introduction and individual can easily find is the recently released boxed set from Rhino Records “The Levy Bruce Performance Film”. The set includes the only complete video footage of Bruce, in this case his second to last performance in 1965 at a San Francisco nightclubThe hour long footage captures Bruce at his most satirical and visceral. In addition to his criticism of religious and political figures, the first third of the performance also includes his attack on the jzistice system which was so quick to remove his freedom of speech - an element of his performance which became more and more prominent as his career drew to a close. Watching Bruce perform, one realizes how absolutely ludicrous it was to try Bruce on obscenity charges without actually wit-

counteracting this first disappointment is a fantastic animated short entitled “Thank You, Mask Man”. Animated by John Magnuson, based on a routine of Bruce’s (who does all of the voices) the animation is delightfully simple - of the old Wizard of Oz cartoon type. This brief animated portion pokes fun at Bruce’s favouriie topic - America. Rednecks, America’s heroes, and America’s sexualmoresalltakeabeatingatDirty\Lenny’s hands - no pun intended.

Lenny 8ruce is dead - he was the brother that you never had and rivals any satire by any comedian in almost any medim His persecution by the police was at least a miscarriage of justice, and at the most a criminal a& in and of itself worthy of the punishment that was passed on to Bruce himself - death Includedintheboxsetisa78minuteCD, including a sixteen minute performance en& _

Carnegie Hall concert on here. Perhaps Ryko is pla&ing on releasing a boxed set of just such recordings, who knows. It’s nice to have the audio portion on disc, but not really that great considering Bruce’s animated performantes. Stand up is a visual medium as much as it is aural, and placing it on disc weakens the mate&l slightly.

Ultimately, that’s all you’re getting with this package, the videotape. The disc doesn’t contain enough material to warrant it’s inclusion and the booklet is a lot of praise, but you can get that out of reviews like this. All the reviews and talk about Lenny Bruce can’t replace Lenny Bruce. He is a man everyone should knoti, one of the few cult figures worthy of the praise lavished upon him and an individual who continues to be a benchmark for criticism of the government and the church and those who would curb the freedom of speech If Lenny could be reduced to one simple point, it would be that there was no such thing as the Truth or the Word. Whatever morals we followed we created by ourselves, so we were ultimately responsible for them and their consequences, and this lesson finds it’s martyr in Tk~y Bruce.
