In the reformed Parliament, the Senate would reflect the equality of the provinces while the House of Commons would be based more on the principle of representation by population. As well, various provinces would be assured a minimum amount of seats in the House of Commons. The proposed Senate would be made up of six elected senators from each province and one from each territory. Additional seats would provide representation for Aboriginal peoples. The reformed Senate’s powers should signifkantiy increase the rote of the elected Senators in me policy process. The proposals recognize that Aboriginal peoples have an inherent rigit! to-self-government and that the Constitution should enable them to develop self-government arrangements and &I We their @ace in the Canadian federation. The proposals recognize &original govlemments asone of the three constitutionally recognized orders of government in Canada. in addition, the proposals provide for a negotiation process between Aboriginal leaders and provincial and federal governments to put this right Into effect. The recognition of the inherent right would not create any new rights to land, nor dilute existing treaty rights. Mow that Canada’s federal, provincial, territorial and Moriginal leaders have reached a cc~~sensus, it is the right of all Canadians& understand the new proposals.

Over the past two years, federal, provincial, territorial and Aboriginal leaders have consulted with thousands of Canadians and concerned groups from coast to coast, These consultations included Royal Commissions, participatory conferences, parliamentary hearings, and hearings in the provinces and territories held by provincial and territorial legislatures. Federal, provincial, territorial and Aboriginal leaders have agreed unanimously on August 28, 1992 in Charlottetown on a package of constitutional proposals that recognizes the equality of all Canadians and represents all of our interests. The agreement is now before Canadians. The agreement proposes #at the new Constitution would contain a statement of key economic and social objectives shared by all of the governments~in the federation--The objectives include comprehensive, universal, portable, accessible and publicly administered health care, adequate social services and-benefits, high quality primary and secondary education and reasonable access to post-secondw education, collective bargaining rights and a commitment to protecting the environment. The economic policy &jectives to be entrenched would be aimed at strengthening the Canadian economic union; the free movement of persons, goods, services, and capital; ensuring full emptoyment and a reasonable standard of living for all Canadians; ensuring sustainable .and equitable development. Exclusive -provincial jurisdiction would be recognized in the areas of forestry, mining, .tourIsm,-housing, recreation, municipal affairs, cultural matters within the province, and Mour market development and training. 4n addition, to ensure the two I&& of .govemmeti work in -harmony, tie government of Canada commits to negotiating agreements with the provinces in areas such as immigmtion, regional development and telecommunications. Federal-provincial agreements on any subject could be protected ,by the Constitution from unilateral change. The new Canadian Constitution would recognize the distinct nature of Quebec, based on its French language, vniqtie culture and civil law tradition.

GSA. sponsors Constitution Debate by Ken byson hnprlnt stafl

A snowy Tuesday night, Ott 20, saw over 2OOinterested students and others attend the Graduate Student Association’s (G.S.A.) constitutional forum in the Engineering lecture hall. Also sponsored by the Federation of Students, the evening was organized around four speakers from both university and city communities. Representing the Yes side were Waterloo councillor Susan Forwell and Wilfrid Laurier Universityprofessor Barry Gough. The No side was represented by Anna DiCarlo from the Committee to vote No, and University of Waterloo professor John Moore. With the format of the forum allowing each speaker 10 minutes to profess their views, the Yes faction took the lectern first. For-well outlined her Canada to include three categories of Canadians: the “no response” group, which she termed as “patriotically challenged;” the “average citizen” group, mostly unaware of constitutional issues; and the “vocal minority,” including the likes of the Reform Party and Bloc Qu&&ois, which are taking over the constitutional debate. , Forwell stated her views as thoseofanaverageCanadianturned vocal; she argued that too much attention to the negative details of the deal ignore the fundamental,

positive interests of the accord. A No vote would be a “victory of mistrust, a hollow victory,” she said. Cough then took the podium to stress the importance of the Canada Clause which opens the ac-

ily.”

Gough also commented on the necessity of passing the accord for economic stability to continue, referring to the economy as the “anchar” of the country. With the Yes arguments pTe-

No side questions accord’s politlcal tights recwd. cord. He argued? that this clause embraces all the things we hold dear toourheartsandthatCanadawould come first before any other interests within Canada, He specifically referred to the distinct society clause for Quebec and thenew aboriginal rightsclause stating that these are “great, giant stridestorecreatetheCanadianfam-

edying gender inequality. On all of these issues, she said, the accord has failed. Alsoconcentratingontheproc essbywhichtheaccordwasreached, she argued against the agreement being reached by 11 first ministers

and not by the people, throughconstituent assemblies. “The accord does not recognize Canadians as the sovereigns of the state,” she said. ‘The last to present was John Moore, who asked the audience to consider their identity. He thenproceeded to argue that within the accord, every Canadians political

rights are not the same. -Turning to the nature of the Yes campaign, he stated that it is based on “lots of trust and no logic” and “rhetoric and not fact.” The Yes campaign does not have a monopoly on patriotism, he claimed. Regarding Quebec and Native issues, Moore argued that the distin&society clausegivesQuebecers greater political rights and that the Natives have been promised nothing but “further negotiations.” Duringthequestionperiodfollowing, discussion was pointed t* wards the “spirit of Canadian compromise/ with regards to constitutional reform. Gough agreed with Susan Forwell that the accord cannot be perfectduetothediversityofneeds across the country; he stated that the accord was “constitutional coop: we’re learning on the job.” Moore countered this argument by saying that Canadians should be Canadians before anything else. He stated that the accord should not be about who gets what, rather, about everyone being treated eqUdY* As the forum drew to a close, each of the candidates reiterated their main points to the crowd.

Correspondence student gets degree after 11 years UW News Bureau

It’s taken 11 years, but the 1engthyefforthaspaidoffforShirley Lucas-Johnson - she’ll receive her BA at the University of Waterloo’s fall convocation. And she seldom set foot on campus, as she earned the degree entirely through UW’s correspondence program both from her home in Montreal and while workingona project for her Canadian employer in Indonesia. Lucas-Johnson is just one of the 132 correspondence students graduating Saturday (Oct.24) at UW’s 65th convocation held at the Physical Activities Complex. Also at convocation, Dorothy Rozins, of Alliston, Ont., will re-

ceive the James D. Leslie Prize for academic excellence. Named after the founder of the correspondence program - a UW physics professor - the award is worth $500 plus a certificate. “I will finally graduate,” says Lucas-Johnson. “Eleven years after I sat at the dining table and helped my son, who was in his final year at the University of Toronto, and my daughter, who was in her first year at Western, choose courses for the next semester. “To e v e r y t h i n g I s u g g e s t e d , I heard the same response, ‘Get real, Mom. You like that stuff, you take it, f II Not one to refuse a challenge, Lucas-Johnson decided to go to university. During those years of

study,shehadtotakeseveralbreaks because of career demands and other responsibilities. But she didn’t give up. “Never did the school make me feel that I was making a wrong

strength of the correspondenceprogramandthisiswhatIstressas1 constantly sing its praises to anyone who will listen.” Proud of her degree, with a major in English, Lucas-Johnson says, “I can’t praise highly enough the incredible support that I received from faculty and staff.” Bruce Lumsden, associate djrector for distance education, says the 132 graduating students have completed at Ieast !50 per cent of their Uw courses by distance education. The oldest graduate is 75 and the youngest 24. “Some of them have done courses elsewhere,” Lumsden says. “This demonstrates the versatility of distance education because you can pick up courses at one educai

tional institution and transfer them to the university where you complete your degree.” Lumsden notes that the average age of correspondence students is 35, generally higher than the oncampus undergraduate population. Students taking the distance education courses live across Canada. UW has one of the largest distance education programs in North America, graduating over 1,800 students since it was established in 1968. The program offers about 300 courses, taught by instructors using mostly audiotapes, printed notes and textbooks. Increasingly, vide&apes,photographicslidesa.nd prints are being employed to enhance learning.

UW spin-off companies create 2000 jobs UW News Bureau

C&-hundred businesses and

2,045 jobs have been identified in a

first major compilationof “spin-off” companies established as the result of research and instruction at the University of Waterloo. There are many more companies yet to be identified and added to the list, said Ted Cross, associate director of UW’sTechnologyTransfer and Licensing Office and who is responsible for the report. “This is our first confirmed list of spin-off companies and it’s very <much a living list that will be up dated,” he said. More than 200 “potential” UW-related enterprises wpre contacted and of that number, profiles and confirmations on 100 of these were received and are included in the report. UW is “world renowned for blending academic excellence with industrial relevance,” Cross said in the report. “This environment has fostered and encouraged entrepre neurship and led to the creation of these spin-off companies.”

Far Side Cat with Peter Brown The World Series I Canadian flag controversy is as amusing as all get 01~5 in light of the decision Canadians will make on Monday. Is it destiny, or just bad timing, that the World Series is preceding the constitutional referendum by a few days? Just as Canadians are striving to identify themselves and reflect their differing realities and aspirations in the Constitution, along comes an event that demands that we measure ourselves by American standards. As has been pointed out so many times in the past, the national pride that we have attached to a Blue Jays World Series berth is illfounded. There are no Canadianborn players on the team and baseball is not a parz of the cultural fabric of this country. Rather, it is a grafted limb, an acquired fascination -- with things American, of course. We have always been insecure in our nationhood and, like an insecure’ adolescent, we have delimited the national character in very simple ways. Originally, the most important thing about Canada was our British heritage. Differences hers would evaporate as soon as Britain need Canadian young men to defend her in war. Over the course of this century, Canada moved from the Anglo-Saxon fold to a more independent position, this time in reaction to the increasing power and influence of the United States. Since we wished to be more independent, like the I4-year-old who takes up smoking because of the rebellious image it evokes, we adopted a different dominant metaphor for ourselves: the not-Americans. We a l l k n o w s o m e o n e w h o has returned from a trip to Europe to tell us with delicious self-satisfaction how much better they were treated when their hosts found out that they were not American, but Canadian. When asked what it is that makes us distinct in the world, most of us would gladly volunteer that we are not American. We’ve got a similiar quality of life, but we just aren’t like them. Of course, you know what the punch-line is. We may not be like them, but, boy, do we want to be! As much as we thank our stars for our social safety nets, we are still inexorably amcted to the grand scale of America. If the Jays can win this thing (as they may have last night after we went to press), a chapter of Canadian history will be written that wiII challenge the place of Paul Henderson’s goal in the national psyche. In fa~f the unwritten subtext of the Canada Clause will have to be rewritten to a c c o m m o d a t e t h i s n e w m)cthology: Canadians will define themselves by whatever acquired mythology suits the beer companies. Our professed reasons for being obsessed with the jays winning it all are like Dur other outward self-definitions. We want XD show that we are better than the Yanks, D wrest the highest honour in professional laseball from the U.S. and have it to ourselves. But the real reasons are all too :lear. We’re tired of being on the ourside. N e want to be one of the boys.

It should be clear to most of us, that the ‘Charlottetown Agreement’, cannot b e ratified on October 26,1992. T h e ‘ Y e s ’ side have resorted to threats and fearmongering to ‘Sell’ the agreement and cannot sell the Accord on its’ own merits. This is nationbuilding? This is Statesmanship? Hardly . . The fundamentals of this agreement are: devolution of Federal power to the Provincial level, Recognition of Aboriginal p e o p l e s ’ r i g h t t o s e l f - g o v e r n m e n t , Distinct S o c i e t y s t a t u s f o r Q u e b e c , i n l a w , and Minimum 25% of House of Commons seats for Quebec. Distinct Society status and the minimum 25% House of Commons seats creates, in my opinion, a Province that is first among equals. How can this be allowed in a democracy? Or is democracy just an abstract idea t o o u r leaders. Furthermore, devolution of Federal p o w e r s w i l l n o t s e r v e t o u n i f y C a n a d a , b.ut l e a d t o i n w a r d t h i n k i n g a n d P r o v i n c i a l selfinterest.

I don’t know when this Referendum became a question of Canada staying together or breaking apart, but rejection of this deal is just that. It doesn’t mean that Quebec is not wanted by the rest of Canada. On October 27,1992, t h e s u n w i l l rise in the esat and set in the west.

No proponents . equal Holocaust deniers? TO the editor, As you know, a local businessman is sponsoring a visit by David Irving, a neoNazi s p e c i a l i z i n g i n H o l o c a u s t d e n i a l . Many p e o p l e i n c l u d i n g m y s e l f have recently protested this. But while it is obvious that Holocaust denial is not historical scholarship, it is less clear why it is dangerous. Its significance lies in the way that it serves to exploit suspicion, cynicism, and anti-Semitism to lubricate acceptance of a gmal r i g h t - w i n g w o r l d v i e w . I n d e n y i n g o r b e l i t t l i n g h i s t o r y ’ s peatest p e r s e c u t i o n , people like Irving clear the field for a racial politic o f i n t o l e r a n c e a n d v i c t i m - b l a m i n g . Narrow conspiracy theories which no longer require evidence confirm all prejudices. No oppression is recognized; in fact, the very concept is subverted. For when Irving ef al rewrite Jewish history they undermine all emancipatory discourses and thereby begin turning the tables on all progressive claims. S i m i l a r l y , in the Canadian constitutional debate of the last few years, denial of the historically demonstrable national oppression of the Queb&ois has served to disorient progressive movements.

It is therefore crucial to recognize Qubbec’s s t a t u s i s t h e t o u c h s t o n e o f p o l i t i c s in Canada. People like the Reform Party have not been unsuccessful in portraying Quebec as the spoiled brat emiserating the r e s t of Canada.

This has probably increased since. That such an innocuous provision is generating overwhelming bitterness is frightening.

For failing to see that the revisionist p o s i t i o n o n Quebec c a n g e n e r a l i z e i n t o a reactionary agenda, progressive forces in Canada have dug ourselves into a hole. Voting Yes is a small part of getting out of it.

Student’s Christian Movement looks at sexism by lngfid Exner Student’s Christian Movement

F o r m a n y c e n t u r i e s , over half the population of t h e w o r l d h a s b e e n supressed not simply due to colour, race or religion but r a t h e r g e n d e r . T h e m a j o r i t y o f worn& today are still looked upon as second-class citizens who must accept a secondary role in society. Today, many women still experience powerlessness in their homes, churches, and s o c i e t i e s . W e , as women, have much to fear on the streets, in the work place, on campuses, and in o u r h o m e s . For far too long, the stereotypical images of men as leaders and builders and women only as servants and caregivers has in existed in our society. Currently, many groups are addressing s o m e o f t h e i s s u e s that c o n c e r n w o m e n and perpetuate this image. For the past four years, the United Church of Canada has been involvedintheEcumenicalDecadeofChurches in Solidarity with Women Some of the issues they have discussed during the first four yearsofthisdecadehavebeenthefeminization of poverty and violence towards women. W o m e n i n o u r s o c i e t y make uo the largest percentage of the working poor. In 1987, 59 per cent of Canadian adults living in poverty were women. As a young female about to enter the work force full-time within the next couple of years, I find this statistic extremely alarming. Even though we make up almost

half of Canada’s paid work force, we still only earn 35 p e r cent of the w a g e s . I simply can’t understand the logic b e h i n d t h i s n o r c a n I believe that there is any justification for it. As well as being occupied with the more visible work outside the home, many women remain responsible for the maintenance of the household. Unfortunately, many women do not benefit economically from this added responsibility. I find that such issues involving the feminization of p o v e r t y t o b e extremely discouraging. While at University, I am, for the most p a r t , l o o k e d u p o n a s e q u a l a m o n g m y male peers. Why does this attitude have to change once I enter the work force? On average, women make half as much as men. Why is this so? If a woman demonstrates just as much skill at a job as a man, why s h o u l d she be paid any less? There is little wonder that poverty is often seen as a woma n ’ s i s s u e if we as w o m e n a r e s e e n a s b e i n g half as valuable as a man in the work place. One of the most terrifying issues today is the increasing violence toward women. Those statistics such as a woman being raped every two to five minutes or that of another woman being beaten in her home every one to three minutes incites fear and rage within me. I

Cana.da: by Eleanor Grant special to Imprint The present constitutional proposal caused me serious misgivings when the premiers announced the basic outline of it early in July. Since then, my decision to vote No has been strengthened the more I have heard and learned about the Charlottetown Accord. I have always favoured “asymmetrical federalism,” that is, a devolution of powers to Quebec while retaining a strong central government for English Canada. This is what the people said they wanted, during both the Spicer Commission hearings in 1991 and the series of weekend gatherings on the constitution in February 1992 (the closest thing to a Constituent Assembly that Canada has ever had). But instead of this, we now have a power grab by the provincial premiers, with a resulting loss of a sense of nationhood for those of us outside Qu&ec. We are left with a patchwork of separate provinces, each too vulnerable to the North-South pull. Mysecondconcemisthatneitherwomen nor ethnicminorities are guaranteed anyrepresent&ion in the new Senate. The function of a Senate is to provide a check against what John Stuart Mill called “the tyranny of the majority.” It is to give under-represented groups and regions a chance to say “that measure you’re proposing would adversely affect us,” so that the majority can rethink its proposed legislation. But all we have accomplished in this constitutional deal is to destroy the principle of representation by population in the House of Commons without giving the Senate enough power to protect the Western and Atlantic provinces, and without giving it any power to protect women and minorities. TheSenatorscanbechosendifferentlyin every province; some provinces may designate three seats for women, some may not; some provinces may have their Senators elected by the people, some may not. Onegets the feeling that this constitution is stuck tol gether with Scotch tape and string ad wouldn’t serve to unite us for long. There is no single vision of the Senate’s purpose and structure. All of this might not have been so bad were it not for the third major objection I see, namely that the process for amending the constitution is too rigid. If we ever want to establishauniformsystemforchoosi.ngSenators, or restore the lower House to representation by population, or make other important changes, it will require the agreement of Parliament and all the provincial legislatures, What are the chances of all the provinces agreeing? Each province will also have a veto over changes to the composition of the Supreme Court (including the provision that three of the nine Justices must be from the civil law bar of Quebec). Combine this with the fact that the federal government will now be obliged to choose Justices from lists supplied bytheprovincesinthefirstp~~,andit~~d evenbecomedangerousunder sQmeunforeseen ciKumstances. I fear that a Yes vote would cause the door to c&k behind us, and we would be trapped with something we cannot change, and have not thought through. I do not subscribe to the noticm that Canada wiU “fall apart” if we faiI to pass this flaweddeal.Ihavemoreccmfidenceinczrnada than that. If “there isn’t any Plan l3,” as Joe Clark would have us believe, then we had bettergetbusyanddevelopone.PlanA-The Charlottetown Accord - is no option at all. I[ think Canada can do much better than this. Founding Peoples Canada, as I see it, is made up offour “founding peoples” - in chronological order: the Aboriginals; the French; the British; and the ethnic minorities. By ethnic minorities I mean the immigrants, and descendants of those immig+s, who came here first from Europe then the Far East, the Middle East, Africa, and to a lesser extent, Latin Ameria

They have played an indispensable part in opening up our country and founding our way of life. In this constitutional proposal, the Aboriginal Canadians and the French Canadians are finally gaining recognition as peoples with their own identity and some powers to run their own affairs. For this I am thankful. But we still have not grasped that British Canadians are also a cohesive people, a distinct society, with a need for some institutions of their own. And we have given GMdians of ethnic minorities no recognized voice and place in government at all. How might these two serious omissions be remedied? The British Canadians would appear to be the dominant founding people in Canada, yet they alone lack a clear sense of ~ti0~1 identity. We in English Canada seem to have

dian people. As for the ethnic minorities, they are a somewhat special case since they aren’t one people and they don’t live in a geographical block. But they are a formidable force in our society and they deserve a recognized place within the government where their voices will be heard and their interests protected. The federal Senate would seem to be a good place to accomplish this. (Though the Senate of course will not be the only place where they will participate in government.) The designation of a number of seats for ethnic minorities may not be a usual function of the Senate in other countries. It would be a new departure on Canada’s part. But was not the creation of Canada itself a new departure? Look at the troubles which many countries are having today in being hospitable to their ethnic minorities! Canada has a chance

so little confidence in ourselves that we think we would fall into the eager arms of Uncle Sam if Quebec did not continue to play her dutiful role of holding us together and providing us with an identity. Iamp~posingthatthisisnot~eobligation of Q&XX, it is our job to do it for ourselves. And to do it we need some strong central institutions for the nine provinces outside of Quhbec. One of these institutions shouId be a Ministry responsible for Culture for Englishspeaking Canada. Culture doesn’t just mean art galleries and symphony orchestras. It alsO means fostering a vibrant popular culture thatcanresistthein cessant barrage of Americzu+fluences. It means feeling gti about who we are as a people. This cannot be left to provincialgovemmen ts,astheCharlottetown Accord proposes. Culture is a function that must be handled in a coherent way throughout English Canada (just as Qu&ec will be handling it in a coherent way for itself). This coherence is necessary to give us a strong sense of ourselves as a people. And culture has implications for many other departments of government, such as telecommunkations~ law and education.

to offer leadership to the world in this field. Fundumetrtuf Chaructetistics of Canada But more fundamental than all of the above points - the Senate, the provincial veto over future change, and the lack of nationhood for English-speaking Canadians - is this: that we have not adequately defined the fundamental characteristics of Canada as a whole. Wearelivinginwhathasbeencalledthe ageoftrib&s~anageinwhich~cgroups reassdng themselves as the most natural and meaningful groupings ofpeople in a wurld which has ‘become too big and c&using.Thistrendisaffectingusgreatlylnour constitution making. IfFrenchCanadaandAboriginalCanada, and eventually British Canada too, are going to want more self-government in futupe to protect their unique heritages, what then makes the whole thing “Canada”? Why not just have three separate countries? What are the things that hold us together as Canadians? Two things that we can identify immediately and without difficulty are a commitmmt to the Charter of Right?3 and Freedoms and a commitment to the integrity of ethnic minorities. To me it is not at all clear that the Charlottetown Accord upholds these com-

mitments. This is because it does not adequately define the term “collective rights” which it has introduced. What are the consequences of “collective rights”? Native women are afraid that the new Aboriginal right to protect “traditions” may over-rule the provision for gender equality in the Charter. And what will happen when authority over immigration is given to Quebec? WiIl this allow her to allow only Francophones if she wishes? And who will see that some portion of the funding available for culture, in both Qu&bec and the rest of Canada, is given to ethnic minorities? These are only a few of the questions we should be feeling uncomfortable about. The fact that such questions can even arise means that this constitution is not g0od enough I’m not a constitutional lawyer, competent to judge whether Charter rights can or cannot be over-ridden by other provisions. All I can say is, if there’s even any doubt about it we’ve got to vote No and go back to the drawing board. It is frequently said by the Yes side that the”intent”wasnottooverrideequalityrights or fairness for minorities, and that we can “fine tune” the Accord as we go on. That would be fine if we always had politicians who are of good wiIl+ But if politicians were always of good will, we wouldn’t necessarily need a constitution at all. (Britain, for example, gets along fairly well without one.) We keep forgetting that a constitution is there to prufecf th people if a tyrant should try to take over. This is its most basic function. If appeal to the constitution fails then the people may have to take up arms. But the constitution is our first line of defense. Would the Charlottetown Accord be adequate protection? If there is any doubt about whether gender equality rights are absolute, or whether doing business in English in Qu&ec will always be permitted, or how mixed marriages and their children will be tolerated in Aboriginal jurisdictions, or whether people can move from one part of Canada to another with full acceptance, or whether there will be a uniform immigration policy, or whether multiculturalism is going to be preserved as a value throughout Canada, we cannot take that chance. Our commitment as Canadians to human rights must bemade unmistakably clear. The door must not be left open to any possibility of male supremacism or ethnic cleansing rearing its head in any jurisdiction in Canada. That’s one of the things that makes us Canada. The idea of collective rights is new to most Canadians, and we need a lot of time to ponder its implications before we rush out and approve it. It would challenge all our basic assumptions about the purpose of the state. Personally I can’t think of a situation in which the rights of ethnic groups -namely to protect language, culture, and traditions should take pnzcedence over individual humanrights. Ethnic groups should not be ekvatd to astatus~~v~ttoa~~n~fo~~~w. It appears to me that the Charlottetown Accord would do just that. It would fundamen tally alter the fabric of Canada as weknow it. The fundamental characteristics of Canada might be changed beyond recognition.

For one thing, it is an adversarial system - a constant process of establishing relative rights between parties. We are tired of litigation. We are tired of the wrangling between the provinces and the federal government. We are fearful of continued stand-offs between Quebec and its Aboriginal p e o p l e s , n o t to speak of the proliferation of ethnic conflicts around the world. More deeply than all that, we are uneasy with the pervasive attitude today that “If nobody complains, it’s okay,” with no sense of underlying morality. We sense that something is wrong with a system which recognizes no reality higher than individual rights. Yet as we have seen, those who are advocating “collective rights” are not providing the remedy that our unease requires; they are only introducing one more, and possibly dangerous, adversarial party to the fray. No, the realities which are beginning to press themselves upon our consciousness today are m u c h grander and m o r e h u m b l i n g than that. They require that we elevate our consciousness of ourselves to a nobler level. No longer is it sufficient for us to say, by means of o u r c o n s t i t u t i o n , “We are free individuals, related to other inhabitants of Canada i n t h e f o l l o w i n g w a y s . ” F o r a b o v e a n d bey o n d o u r h u m a n f r e e d o m s we need t o s t a r t recognizing somebigger perspectives. I would l i k e t o d i s c u s s them under three headings: 1. We are citizens of the world. 2. We are guests o f the earth. 3. We are creatures o f t h e C r e a t o r . These are perspectives which are deeply held in the hearts of Canadians, and I believe they should appear in our self-defining document as “fundamental characteristics of Canada.” Things to which”Canadians arecymmitted.”

I would like to propose a radical idea. I think we should develop a body like a Council of Elders, made up o f A b o r i g i n a l s , s o m e Catholics, some Protestants, and some Hindus, Buddhists, and Muslims - men and w o m e n o f a l l great faiths who would confer and serve in an advisory capacity to our government. Membership would be for life. Eventually we might wish to let this body replace the Senate (whose present function, as I mentioned earlier, has become an adversarial one). This is a practical way ‘in which we could begin to acknowledge the Creator and His guidance again, in the fundamental law of o u r people* If we were to take the advice of these E l d e r s - the spiritual Senate - w h a t m i g h t so*me of the consequences be for our life and society? Perhaps we would introduce some r e f o r m s a s s e e i n g t h a t c h i l d r e n receive religious instruction and work participation as a right, stopping the sale of pornography and

the a d v e r t i s i n g of a l c o h o l , s u p p o r t i n g t h o s e who care for the elderly at home, taking better care of farm and land animals, a n d l o w e r i n g the interest rates+ We would discover that we have nothing to fear from religion, but rather that our world would start to become inhabitable again. P e r s o n a l m o r a l i t y w o u l d s o o n follow, without a lot of difficulty, because it is a state natural to the soul. In discussing the fundamental characteristics of Canada we need to acknowledge t h a t p e r s o n a l r i g h t s a r e limited -not b y “ c o l lective rights” but by collective responsibilities. The Charter of Rights needs to be balanced by a Charter of Responsibilities which we accept voluntarily as a people. In it we need to acknowledge our responsibility to other peoples of the world, our responsibility to protect and revere the natural environment and o u r r e s p o n s i b i l i t y t o c o n d u c t o u r selves in a dignified manner as a society before our Creator. Only a free people can place itself under these obligations with humility. And only a people that does so can hope to discover the true i n n e r m e a n i n g o f f r e e d o m . May we hold this matter of the constitution of Canada earnestly in our prayers. Editor’s Note. Religion and State? Constitutional Utopia.

Who would have thought that Waterloo’s back-up quarterback would pass for more yards than the best quarterback in the OUAA? That’s what happened last Saturday, October 17at Seagram Stadium as the dubiously fourthranked Golden Hawks edged the W a r r i o r s 12-9. Hawk linebacker Brian O’Reilly got an early Christmas present in the form of a fumbled option lateral that landed at his feet midway through the third quarter. After overcoming his surprise, he picked it up and rumbled 82 yards for Laurier’s only major. Such good fortune was welcomed by the Laurier sideline, as that was the only way Waterloo was letting them into the endzone.

The Warriors’ display of character last Saturday in losing to the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks was made even more poignant by the bombshell dro ped by the Canadian Interuniversity Athletic Union on tf e night before the game, Friday, October 16. Steve Dean, a second-year fullback with the Warriors,

had received a four-year ban from playing university football after testing positive for nadrolene, an anabolic steroid. Dean was selected for a random urine test late in September and was informed of the test results two weeks later. With three-years of varsi eligibility left, it is unlikely that he will play university foottall again He took the dru for two weeks last spring, thinking that it would clear out oBhis system quickly. Later, he discovered from the erson who sold him the steroids that it co’uld remain in ru‘s s stem for six months to a year. Onateam t&tt relies as much on the run as Waterloo does, the fullback position is crucial, and Dean admits that he put too much pressure on himself to excel, He had hoped to beef up from his current 205 pounds to 210 or 215 by using the nadrolene. “We never think anybody on our team is on drugs, but it

only goes to show you can be wrong,” athletics director Wally Delahey said. Delahe said that he believes that a lifetime ban is necessary to cur iT the use of steroids.

Mad’s rouzh vlav bzored by referee

Rugby Warriors out of playoff hunt cantered effectively again as strategic kicking from Castilho’s boot brought Waterloo deep into Mac territory again. AblownMarauderline-outgavetheball to the Warriors for a strum and Steve Keith took the balI through the defensive line and could not be taken down until he was a few strides short of the Mac goal line. The close supporting Simon Lewis collected the bail and scrambled the last five metres to score the Waterloo try. Castilho kicked the convert and pushed the score to 10-O over Mac. Ten to nothing over Mac! Wow! Then the Marauders rubbed the sleep from their eyes and came at us with a vengeance. The size and speed among their backs had trampled over or run around other teams, but good tackling and team pursuit on defence kept turning aside the McMaster drives. Defensive kicks for touch discouraged the slower Marauder forwards, so they changed tactics. The Mac forwards started putting boots, k n e e s , fists, and yes, even teeth, t o a n y W a r rior caught amongst them. Rugby is a hard game, but I know I can speak for our whole team when I say that we were not accustomed to the viciousness that became more and more prevailent as the game went on. The failure of the referee to discipline any players for their malicious actions left us frustrated. One eye had to be looking back in case a team member was being given the once over behind the play since the official was blind to what was taking place. Mac took the advantage with their rough play and managed to work the ball into our end zone for a try. They missed on the conversion, but the lead was down to five points.

SpectatorsofthegameinHamiltonmight have thought that there were two totally different teams on the field for the first and second half because of the difference in play exhibited with the change of ends. The Warriors received the kick-off, started strong, and dominated the majority of play with great ball control1 and close support. Swift running cuts by inside-center Steve Keith had the Mac players tripping over each other in pursuit.

The McMaster backs kicked the ball in an attempt get relief, but the Warriors quickly sent a return kick deeper into the Marauder end and caught the Mac forwards offside. The penalty was kicked by Castilho, and the 13-5 lead gave the Warriors some breathing room. Upon receiving the kick-off, the Warriors were then called for binding around Mike Temi in an offside position.

TheOWfAAsoccerplayoffsare only two weeks away and the race is on for playoff contention. Last week, the Athena soccer team inched closer to this goal. Wednesday, October 14 marked Waterloo’s third win of the season. The aggressive Athenas trounced the Brock Badgers 5-O on Columbia Field. The women came out confident. Their offence showed no mercy, with numerous attempts from defensive and offensive positions. In the early minutes of the game, fullback Darka Tchir and midfielder Catherine Hollifield score Waterloo’s first two goals. Just beforetheendofthehalf,midfielder KerryJarnesonpoppedanothergoal in, for a 3-O Waterloo advantage. The Athenas continued to play strongly for the duration. Midfielder Alison Snider and Patti Turnbull capitalized on two more chances, leaving the score at 5-O.

team knew they had to come togetherand forgetthepreviousday’s mistakes. The Athenas headed to Hamiltontoconfrontthel99lCIAU champions, the McMaster Marauders. The Athenas started off slow and the Marauders were able to capitalize, taking a l-0 lead. This shook up the team and they fought back withdetermination. Before the half ended, UW’s A n n a Hoogendoomreceivedtheballfrom the middle and put it in the back of the net to tie the game l-1.

Rookie goaltending sensation Nicofe Wight played another tremendous game, shutting down the opposition down for the rest of the game. This game added another point to the team’s record.

Black Plague kicks off preseason at Brock by Rich Mchol imprint sports

The Black Plague volleyball Warriors kicked off their 1992-93 exhibition schedule by participating in the Brock University InvitationalVolleyballToumament in St. Catharines this past weekend. Waterloo was considered one of the perennial favourites in the eightteamevent,finishingas tournament champions in three of the previous four years. After losing four of its six starters to graduation - power hitters Ian Heynen and Dave Balodis, and middle blockers William Zabjek and Brian Shin - the volleyball Warriors have begun a major rebuilding process, but still remain one of the most dominating forces in the OLJAAcoderence. Despite the gaps in the roster, Waterloo still finished fifth among the strong field of ten teams in attendance. Warrior head coach Scott Shantz,nowenteringhisfourfh year at the helm, elected to try out most of his 1992-93 Black Plague lineup including many of his promising freshman

The biggest surprise for Waterloo was the offensive leadership of third-year power hitter Rene Halt Averaging over ten kills per match, Holt tore down the opposing team’s block with b attack both mcourt and down the line. He received a tournament all-star s&ction for his efforts. Fellow power hitter and team captain Mike Fullerton, the true veteran of the team with four solid years of CIAU volleyball under his belt, also had a very consistent at-

tack throughout the weekend, The team’s status was rather shaky during the off-season when startingsetterandouAAwestfirstteam all-star Shawn Smith became quite sick, losing 30 pounds and a great deal of athletic stamina. Considered by many as the premier setter in Ontario and the essential ingredient of Waterloo’s success, Smith is the life and death of the t e a m . F i g h t i n g b a c k o v e r t h e last few months to regain the weight and energy that he had lost, Smith was able to start in many of the Warrior’s matches this past week-

morning by beating up on the host squad Brock two straight, 15-10 and 15-7, in just 36 minutes. Waterloo also made short work of Laurier, winning 2-O by game scores of 15-12 and 15-10. Ryerson met the same fate losing 2-O (1542 and 1541). Probably the most entertaining match of the two-day event was The Black Plague’s final pool play match against OUAA conference nemesis Toronto. Over the past four years, exhibition and league games between these two teams havebeen volleyball marathons and this bout was no different. After over one hour of play the Varsity Blues edged the Warriors2-1 by game scores of 15=6,14X, and 1512. In the &ampionship quarterfinals the following morning Waterloo met up with a hot Western team and lost in a 40-

Hoops Athenas get .WeSte.rn silver . by Maureen Marcdonald imprint sports

The varsity Athena Basketball team kicked off their pre-season schedule on a positive note at the Western Invitational Tournament last weekend by capturing silver and coming home with a 2-l record. On Friday night (October 16), the Athenas defeated York University 47-45 in a hard-fought and wenly matched defensive effort. Although it was only the first game of the season for the squad, they worked well together and showed lots of promise. The game was close for all 40 minutes and the score viras 45-40 for Waterloowithtwominutesremaining. York scored a lay-up at the oneminute mark and a three-pointer with33secondsremainingtotiethe game at 45 all. Waterloo pulled out the win with only 11 seconds to go on an outside jump shot by second-year

guardJanice Awad. The scoring for theAthenaswasevenlydi.stributed and the team was 82 per cent from the fme-throw line. The high scorer and player of thegamefortheAthenaswasKathy Wordham with 11 points. Strong rebounding was a key to the win with Brenda Kraemer and Nadia Gosgnach each pulling down six. On Saturday night (October 17), the Athenas met the Western Mustangs in Alumni Hall and fell 71-44 to the traditionally powerful team. The Mustangs came at the WaterloosquadwithfulIcourtpressurebutthe Athenashandleditwell and maintained composure. The score was close for much ofthematchandinthefirsteight minutes of the second half the Athenas outscored the Mustangs 15-8. One of the deciding factors in the game seemed to be Western’s ability to sink three-point shots and they wentually pulled ahead for the win.

Brenda Kraemer, a fifth-yea kinesiology student, was player of the game for her efforts on offence and on defence. The toumam ent ended on a winning note for the Athenas with the Sunday morning defeat of Guelph Gryphons. The Athenas defeated Guelph 59-33 in a game which saw the Waterloo team neutralize the Guelph penetration and force outside shots. Carrying over the iritensity of Saturdaynight’sgame,theAthenas kept their turnovers down and saw scoring contribution from many players. Awad was selected as player of the game as she led the Waterloo backcourt in a strong attack. Ahighlightoftheweekendwas the fact that every member of the team was able to contribute and gain valuable experience.

The 1992-93 version of the Waterloo varsity swim team travelled south last weekend to Windsor to swim the annual Can-Am IIWitdiOMl.

The team as tough as Oakland University (one of the top NCAA Division II s&c&s) was there as was Wayne State, Brock, Laurier and the hosts, Windsor. Sheryl Slater opened the meet with a superior effort, taking a gold inthemmetrefreeandfoIlowing that up with an equally impressive first in the 200 back over a strong Brock contingent. Rookie Amy Jan& continued the winning ways with the 200 intermediate,100 fly, and 100 free. Former UAU qualifier Gory Powell shows you’re never too old tocomebackwithtopthreefinlshes inthe2OOfree,fOOfree,andlOOfly. Big smiles were given by rookie Janet Duga with exciting finishes in the 100 free. Kara Rice, despite unorthodox turns, turned in an excellent time of li10.68 in the 100 back. Veteran Trish FeIszegi crushed the rest of the field with a :31.26 in the 50 back. Our breaststroke contingent, led by CIAU qualifier Melissa Williams with help from second year swimmer Jen Beat& dominated the women’s breaststroke events. Rookie Diana Dampier showed great promise in all three breaststroke events. Jana Stehlik and Natalie Se&in rounded out the small yet strong women’s side with impressive efforts throughout the day. The men’s side was led by a strong contingent of returning veterans and a promising collection of

Again, the ball was awarded irmmctly to the attacking team, andanothertrywasscored.Th+try was converted to put Mac further out front at 29-13. ThedispiritedWarriorsfellvictim to one more questionable refereeing decision and the resulting Mac score turned the once close game into a 36-13 route. The final minutes of the game saw play deteriorate into flagrant vindictive retaliations of foul play that the referee remained oblivious to. Little solace was felt at having received some retribution by taking justice into our own hands in repayinp the Marauder’s foul play with our own. The score left a feeling that consistant ignorance by the official played a major role in de&mining the outcome of the game and took away our last playoff hope for the SeasOn. Fortunately, the second game had a muchbetter official. The junior varsity team lost a very close game 3-5. Ashley Richards scored theWarriorpointsonapenaltykick. The team put out a very strong effort,inspiteof havingthenumber of available players being depleted from having to promote and replace injured starting players.

If Laurier beats York at Seagram Stadium, they?1 be number two. Toronto and Laurier would then host playoff games next Saturday. The winners of fist-round games advance to the OUAA championship Yates Cup at SkyDome in Toronto on November 7. The Warriors dodged three bullets early as Laurier drove deep into uw territory thrice in the first half, only to come away with singles each time. Waterloo could have maintainedthismomentumand tied the game with at least a field goal as they drove 53 yards to VVLIJ’s 223 yardlineinthefinalminuteofthe half. This drive was key& by a 4% yard option scamper by Mike Son on second-and-inches. But this chance was squandered as the usually conservative Knight calkd a r-e- play to receiver Jodie Schnarr, who was tracked down by WLU defensive end Hugh Lawson for a loss of 19

yards. This forced kicker Rick Guenther to j-ry a field goal from 45 yards out; it was wide to the right. Waterloo looked to regain the momentum early in the second half as Son returned a punt 40 yards to Laurier’s 51-yard line. After runs by Tom Chartier of eight, nine, and thirten yards, Waterloo’s offence lookedlikeanunstoppablemachine (Chartier gained 82 yards on 16 carries).ThencameDanschUo’sfumble of an option lateral and O’Reilly’s momentous return.

Sonic Youth Rock Like Pigs

Hundreds of years ago before the dawn of history, lived an ancient race sonic Youth with Eric’s Trip and Laughing Hyenas me Ccmcerf Hall Thursday, October 15

by SoMy Atwal imprint St*

Considering the vital statistics of the band, the name Sonic Youth may seem like a misnomer. The youngest member of the band, drummer Steve Shelley, is 31 and the oldest, bassist Kim Gordon, is 38. They already have the reputation of guitar gods and they seem to be approaching the age of no reHowever, to anyone who was at their recent Toronto concert at the Concert Hall, it was deafeningly obvious that they are old only in humanyears.Intermsoftheyouthhlness of the sound, their precocious adventuring with distortion and guitar sounds, they are still as fresh as a vacuum-sealed bag of Nabob, The show began with Moncton’s very own Eric’s Trip, who take their name from atrackon the SO& album Lhydrem Nation. Theyseemedtomodelnotonlytheir soundbutal.sotheirlookfromSonic Youth (right down to the female bassist). The band had a bit of a lull in the middle of their set, but the blasting opener as well as the two clo&ngnum~rswerephenomenal. Somewhat like the Sonics in their devotion to noise, Eric’s Trip trulyfulfilledtheirdutyasanopening act - they made a name for themselves, and left the crowd wanting more. With the currept Canadian music scene being typified by the likes of Bootsauce, Sons of Freedom, and (on the more popular side) Bryan Adams, having to see a band like Eric’s Trip in a support slot for an American band is a little disconcerting.Whereareallthepro-

From their performance onThursday, there’snoreasonwhy thisgreatEastOastCan.adianband shouldn’t have as much success as a shit Montreal band. Thesecondopeningactlaughing Hyenas were just as impressive as Eric’s Trip. Hailing from the U.S.A., the most impressive thing about this band was the lead singer’s voice. If in some bizarze accident the lead singer of Pearl Jam and James Hetield of Metallica were to be melded into one human being, this is what that hybrid human being would sound like. Fortunately the band provided a little more originality than PearlJam and alittlemoremelodythanMeta&a.

merits. By choosing good opening bands (Laughing Hyenas also accompanied Sonic Youth on their 1990 Go0 tour) the Sonics are proving their de.votion to music in general rather than the big bucks that go along with being famous. At 11:30, Sonic Youth took the stage knowing full well that the crowd was there to pray at the altar of distortion. And pray we did. Aswithalltrulygreatconcerts, the songs performed were more than just the album vemions. Songs like “Drunken Butterfly” and “Sugar Kane” received total reconstruction at the hands of the band. New verses/lyrics were added and the crowd were treated to familiar content in an unfamiliar form. This being said, the band’s sound on

stage was remarkably similar to the album versions for much of the performance. It wasn’t hard to recognize the songs within a few chords, however tiy of the tracks were mutated into new creatures, not all of which were friendly. The band made brilliant use of a limited light system throughout the night. Moments of nirvana (no pun intended) were reached when waves of distorted power chords swept over the crowd and the only lights on the band were the erratic flash of a strobe and swirling kaleidoscopic colours behind them, For what seemed an eternity, the band would build toa climacticcrescendo

But polished is a rather strange word to describe a band whose members alternately beat their guitars with their straps, use drumsticks as makeshift frets and simulate copulation with the bass. Towardtheendoftheset,most of the songs collapsed into an impromptu lesson in guitar torture, extracting wails and cries from their axes. It’s an almost exclusive Sonic Youth trick to be able to combine both fucked-up, loud, aggressive guitars along with some wonderful melodies that put the Sonics head and shoulders above any of the Next Nirvanascurrentlywankingoff into their microphones. Theusualcomplaintsonecoti have at a show like this are that the songs that the band put on the set list are not the songs you or I would’ve put on the set list. Such a bitch has little if any place at a show like this. The songs presented b thebandwereperformedwithsu cii energy and sta e presence that it’s almost impossi% le to fault them for a narrow song selection+ After all, had they tried to do an overview to please everyone, they would’ve pleased no one. That may very well be true for the band’s entire career, and not ju+ tl& night. It’s a cliche in rock to call a band dangerous. Guns ‘N Roses are no more dangerous than my fiend’s retarded dog. Likewise for the brand “experimental.” It’s a term that can be applied to very few bands, but fortunately Sonic Youth is one group where this label can not only be applied, but will stick, because it’s true.

Big Top Spirit Tear the Commercial Down them with Spirit of the West. As usual the subject of the songs came from the real life experiences of the band. T w o o f t h e s o n g s w e r e a b o u t t h e hectic and awkward lifestyle associated with travelling for a long time. There was, what I think’ a love s o n g ( s o m e t i m e s h a r d t o t e l l w i t h them), a political song, one about Pee Wee Herman’s troubles of late called “Bone of Contention” (as Mann explained “We are big fans of Pee W e e H e r m a n and masturbation”), and one he wrote while on his honeymoon in Venice. Most of the other material done for the show came from their latest release Go @mt mixed with the big hits from the earlier alb u m s . ln a change though, they did play the original version of “Political” from the album Labolrr Day. Although I enjoy both versions, it was nice to see the old one in concert again. The only complaint I had with the show was the use of voice echo on some of the songs. This effect may work well with the

One aho has to wonder why a band which could sell out Fed Hall would choose to play in such a small venue.

The appreciative crowd seemed to enjoy what they were doing and I look forward to seeing them again. Overall, a great night of music was witnessed by the crowd and although no mention of upcoming material was made, Kelly ended the last encore by saying that they would see us again after a new album. For me, that moment can’t come too soon.

V a n c o u v e r ’ s S p i r i t o f t h e West will need “Home for a Rest’ after having radiated such an abundance of contagious energy that caught a n d b l a z e d l i k e w i l d f i r e t h r o u g h the C o m m e r c i a l T a v e r n i n Maryhill, where the band played last Thursday. Referring to live performances, John Mann (singer / s o n g w r i t e r / g u i t a r i s t ) s a y s , “audiences liking us @ves us encouragement. When we first started out, our emotions and e g o s w e r e s o f r a g i l e a n d if’it w e r e n ’ t f o r t h e fact that people liked us, we probably wouldn’t have continued on. I hope pea l e e n j o y t h e m selves -when they get up an 1 g o nuts, that’s the ultimate.” Thursday night’s exuberant full house did just that! For down-to-earth Mann, married witha 19-month-oldsonandexpectinganotherbaby soon, an artist is “someone who is bein creative by following their own desires an fabilities at the same time as trying to explore, rather than re t what has been done already.” This pE ’ osophy accurately mirrors the band’s evolvement with their most recent release, Go Figure. The phrase appealed to Mann when he noticed it on a poster in a Portuguese restaurant. The rest is history. Mann feels, “the last album was a p r i m e breakaway. We’re always reinventing; although, we found it a bit frustrating because we exyctd it to sell more than it did.” He adds, ‘if Geoff and I don’t write for awhile, there’s a piece of me that mourns us not being MiStiC.”

What is creativity?” I ask. “I don’t know how to define it,” Mann s a y s . “ I t ’ s f e d b y e v e r y t h i n and anything c o n v e r s a t i o n , s o u n d s , s m e I!& . . . whatever is inspiring.

It’s evident artistic exploration encomasses the near future of the band with plans Porrecord-writingin January/February. Mann

announces, ‘we want to take the electric thing as far as we can. We missed the harder edge after a t o u r w h e r e w e l e a n e d h e a v i l y o n o u r first three albums.” Musical influences colour a vast spectrum for Mann, ran g from “alternative, rock, @tar, opera, cI? assical, old big band to older azz singers,” I’ tvh at about the rogues?” I question. “ I l i k e T h e P O es less and less; they’re losing their sense oI?d i r e c t i o n .

Kill Mother Fucting L-. _-

Digit age, mediocre industrial ensemble (i.e, Digit) are the dynamic female vocals that contrast exceptionally well with their manly Aryan lung-cleansing social angst. Monday night, however, it took four (I think) songs to end the heated debate as to the sex of the blonde in the back. Yes, there was a female presence. One question I had going into the show was “What do these guys/girls look like?” Would they be tall blonde boys with angular facial features and have a proper posture? Would they wear all black, with studded collars and bullwhips to boot? No! They looked like that guy I worked with this summer in the grocery department of Summerhill Market, (before he cut his hair). Guns ‘N’ Roses beware, there are some new scruffy kids on the block. Not that thev all looked iike that, some of them had shave& -heads, oh wow. Originality is not a strong point of KMFDM‘s live show (they were alive, right?). I could have sworn I heard a power chord version o,f: a) Joan Jett’s “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,” b) Toni Basil’s “Micky,” or c) Culture Club “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?” If you missed the show, do not cry, my leettle leibchen, you kan dive to many other groups out in dese world. KMFDM belongs in a klub, on your Blaupunkt, in your face, not on your lederhosen. After the show the lack of poise and delicacy with which these love songs were rendered was deplorable. Admirably so. I bet, KMFDM were pleased with themselves-eveniftheymissedOktoberfest.

KMFDM Fed Hall, wfatmEoa Monday, October 19 by Vincent Kozmu Imprint stuff The first thing I noticed when I arrived at Fed Hall for the KMFDM concert was that, for the life of me, I couldn’t spot even one feathered, Oktoberfest cap. Not one! Yet the group is German - very German, much more German than any of the girlie ziggen Zaggen who put beer on my headen. Seriously now, the show went somethinglikethis... “MyVolkswagen’sfatherpaintsthegrass of my aunt’s hospital!!!” Or at least that’s what I thought he was saying, but that’s not important. All that is important is that KMFDM bit the big one and puked it all over the crowd. And they loved it! Before I deal with KMFDM, something must be said about the opening act Digit. Hereitgoes.. . Blah,blahblahblahblah,blah! Blab blah, *&%%$#I@# blah! And furthermore, Digit’s best performance of the evening was when hunky, husky, hulky front-man Beau (Bridges?) and his poncy jacket was unceremoniously tossed of the stage during the KMFDM set. The first ballad KMFDM performed was “Go Kids Go,” or at least that was the tnost popular rie in the song. It was obviously their favourite &vg: why else would the have played it again later into the night? Second on the play l&was “Sex,,011 the Flag” followed by “Naive.” What a disturbing experience, especially “Naive”! On disc it is a catchy, gotta dance type ditty.

A brief disclaimer: Blue Rodeo i s m y favourite Canadian band of all time. That being said, Lost TOgether is a welcome throwback to thekindoftwangy,gritty,andethereal country pop that made Outskirts and Diamond Mine the rnasterpieces they were. A lucky thing, too. Their last release, Casino, with its two legitimate pop hits and eight boring wanna-bes, seemed to sigilal creative bankruptcy for the Sand. Bob Wiseman, that Hari Kari drtist of the Hammond, has left the

band after recording Last TugethPr, but the ranks of Jim Cuddy, Greg Keelor, and Basil Donovan are joined by former Cowboy Junkie KimDeschampsonpedal-steelguitar and Glenn Milchem replacing MarkFrenchondrumsDeschamps is a welcome addition that reminds one of Blue Rodeo’s country heritage. Like Diamond Mine, this LP ranges across all of the band’s influences,fromtheopeningfiddlenotes of “Fools Like You” to the more cynicti sound of “Restless” and “The Big Push.” T h e y e v e n d r a w attention to the incongruity of a Toronto-based band being so interested in country music with the ever-so-twangy “Western Skies“: “And I’d rather be back in the Rocky Mountains than sitting in some bar on Queen St. . . . Oh, how I miss those western skies.” The album also contains, of course, plenty of Jim Cuddy-sung lonesome, hurt-in’ ballads (what and Joey is bearing a startling r e s e m b l a n c e t o Yoke% b i g brother. I knew Dee Dee (he was my favourite because he did the sound checks) had left the band, so imagine my surprise, when I see that he has actually co-wrote some of the songs on this CD.

by Huffy Shnlder The Media Assussin Twelve years ago, I heard my first Ramones album (Roari fo Ruin), just before the release of Rock ‘N’ Roll High School, the cult film that made the Ramones go from cult group to almost commercially viable. Phil Spector tried his best with End of ihe Century, but it was like David Foster trying to help The Payola$. Anyway, ten years have passed without me really paying much attention to what I once thought of were a most fab four. They’re not aging very well

Yes, indeed, although it wouldn’t have made a difference. It’s still the same three cords and themes that served so well in the late ’70s. Actually, they don’t sing about Vietnam anymore, but you could sing the words to Rock ‘N’ RoZI High School to Touring. Really, and if you don’t believe me, come down to Imprint and try it for yourself. This song actually shows how low they can go as the line “Rockaway Beach, no it’s not far, not far to reach” into the second verse. In other words, its shite in the first degree, so excuse me while I go find some Carbona and relive the good old days with the first four albums.

Perhaps the only weak songs ontheLl?aretheswirlingkeyboardfeaturing songs that try to evoke fond memories of “Floating” and ‘Diamond Mine” - t h e y m u s t b e send-offs to Wiseman. Clearly, they just don’t work - Keelor sounds ludicrous singing lyrics like “You kinda remind of those psychos in a German film, you’re that cool looking weirdo with those voices in his head.” My advice to Keelor the songwriter: forget about Bobby; write songs that reflect the sound you can best achieve now, instead of struggling to write ones that remind your old audience of p a s t o n e s . Y o u ’ l l only have to perform them live with Bobby anyway.

tracks 98 and 99. In addition, the CD comes in an annoying cardboard casing, which folds out to a T-shape. Try fitting that into your CD holder! Listening to this disk fosters extreme confusion. The first full track “Wish” features an extremely fast beat along with Ministry4ke g u i t a r riffs. T h i s a l t e r n a t e s w i t h a softsiren,accompaniedbyfastbeats and vocals, yelled in frustration: ‘I put my faith in god and my trust in you/ now there’s nothing more fucked up I could do.” Whether or not this song is any good is debatable. It has all features needed for m a j o r s l a m m i n g o r h e a d banging, but its actual quality must be decided by the listener. “Last”isdefinitelyagoodtrack, probably because ft sounds a lot like Ministry, which could be considered quite sad, considering Nine Inch Nails is supposed to be original in its sound. Again the lyrics are full of self pity, angst, and d i s g u s t with life: Warn out from giving it up my soul I pissed it all away. . . my lips may promise/ but my heart is a whore.” “Happiness in Slavery” is the only track similar to the Nine Inch Nails of three years ago. Echoes of “Sin” are quite apparent here. It carriesanindustrial,dancybeatand is much tamer sounding than the other tracks, but is actually one of the better ones. The vocals, however, are still on a parallel to the rest of the release. One wonders if Reznor has anything to say besides, “I hate what the world has made of me.“

The hidden bonus tracks are, needless to say, a little off the wall. Track 98 is an old Adam Ant cover, and Track 99 was written with Pigface, and sounds a bit like ‘Head Like a Hole” gone insane, and perhaps played backwards. Whatever. It is a good thing this is only a bonus track. The reason I decided not to rate Broken is simply because I don’t want to give it a shitty mark, since it isn’t all that bad. However, a good mark isn’t necessarily what it des e r v e s , a l t h o u g h m a n y m i g h t think it does. My ambiguity must therefore be reflected. You decide.

by Derek Weiler Imprint stuff From the beginnings of their car e e r i n t h e e a r l y 1980s, .R.E.M. w e r e critics’ darlings. When the backlash came, it was in the form of charges that they were resting on the laurels of their appealing janglepop sound. I n recent years, though, they have fearlessly grown with every record, and met with commercial success despite - or perhaps because of -- this. Automaticfor the People represents something of a return to form for R . E . M . , f o l l o w i n g l a s t y e a r ’ s uneven Out uf Time. The “new” R.E.M. sound represents a further progression of last year’s This time out it’s a Phil S p e c t o r i s h “ w a l l o f s o u n d , , - heavy on the organ, bass and strings, with Michael Stipe’s vocals placed s q u a r e l y out front, and Peter Buck’s guitar usually a very small part of the mix. The songs, too, are more uniformly mellow. While Ouf c@me was fairly evenly split betweenballads and

up-tempo numbers, the new record is almost solely made up of slow mood pieces. There are only three “fast songs,, on the w h o l e a l b u m . One, “ I g n o r e l a n d , ”

Fri&y,

They convey all the instant, shocking joy of “Stand,, or “Sh.iny Happy People,” but happily without the kits& f a c t o r . Other than that, it’s all slower materiai - and for the most part excellent slower material. “Try Not to Breathe,” ” Monty Got a Raw Deal,” and “Find the River’ are all c l a s s i c R . E .

Their song structures and sound also contain all the R.E.M. hallmarks: muted guitar, accordion, keyboards, heavy yet melodic bass. Some songs represent successful departures from the expected. “Everybody Hurts” sounds like nothing so much as R.E.M. taking on an old Otis Redding ballad. “Star Me Kitten,” with its eerie background hum and Stipe’s cabaretish vocal stylings, doesn’t sound quite like anything the band has done before. And “Nightsw imming” is simply a heartbreaking, gorgeousballad built only on piano, strings and vocals.

singer and lyricist, Stipe is now in top form. His vocals display greater range than ever before, and his w o r d s c a n b e s t r i k i n g l y d i r e c t (as on “Sweetness Follows,” a song about death) or wonderfully oblique (“Man on the Moon,” apparently about Andy Kaufman). T h r o u g h o u t t h e r e c o r d , he c o n s i s t ently shows that he is capable of ironic humour just as much as emotional earnestness. A&m&fir the People is not a perfect record. “Drive” and ‘*Sweetness Fol.lows” occasionally slip into bland dullness and ‘New Orleans InstrumentalNo. 1” is a throwaway not fit for a B-side. (This seems to be theplacetomention’WingedMamma1 Theme,,, a jazzy almost-instrumental that can be found on the Bside of the “Drive” single. That song is the equal of a n y t h i n g o n t h e album and should certainly have been included in lieu of “New Orleans Instrumental No. 1.” Oh well . . .) Despite m i n o r f l a w s , t h o u g h , Automatic f o r the People represents the further growth of R.E.M. and is on the whole another excellent achievement. Unlike Out of Time, it leaves me curious to hear what they will do next.

until thye b r i l l i a n t ArcGelder EP arrived, I was prepared to say yes. However, I know that Raleigh is definitely the best independent release I’ll hear all year. 45 RPMs of melodic yet buzzsaw-like guitars that create three fantastic songs. It seemsrather blunt to compare a Minneapolis band to Husker Du, yet this is undoubtedly the band’s strongest influence/resemblance. T h i s E P c o u l d have easily appeared on Everything Falls Apart or Zen Arcade. While this may seem like an otierstatement, I’m sure anyone

who’s heard this would agree. 1 d o n ’ t m a k e t h e c o m p a r i s o n t o pigeon-hole the band, but to compliment t h e m . T h e i r s t y l e i s o r i g i n a l enough that there’s no worry of being called rip-off artists, but the influence is definitely there. A tip of the hat to Touch and Go. This seems to be a label that really knows what’s going on, or at least has scouts with some taste. Laughing Hyenas, the band that opened for Sonic Youth in their recent Toronto show, are also on this labelandprovidedafantasticshow. Superchunk were also on the label, andtheywereperhapsthefirstband to move on to bigger (and better?) things. Although there are some missteps such as Urge Overkill, these four bands together definitely confirm my belief that Touch and Go is headed for a bright future, and rightly so. As for Jesus Lizard, they seem to fall into what I see as a predictable yet completely incomprehens i b l e paam. O v e r the past c o u p l e of weeks, it’s Jesus Lizard that’s received the big push. They’re the ones headlining a tour, and Arcwelder’s the support act for a few shows. This is similar to m Joshua Tree becoming the big album for UZ, when it seemed like everything else they’d done was far better, Morrissey basically controlling the world, when The Smiths laboured in relative obscurity in North America. It seems as though the less talentedwillinheritt.heearth.Notthat this album’s all that bad, it’s just not that great.

“We’re all like bone machines, X guess. We break down eventually, and we’re replaced by other models. Newer models. Younger models. Bone Machine.. . Sounds like a superhero, doesn’t it? - Tom Waits A s t h e s t o r y g o e s , a man ambled into a small non-descript pub in Co. Kerry, Ireland and, sidling up to an old piano in the comer, proceeded to tinkle away on the i v o r i e s . U p o n h e a r i n g d u l c e t resonance fill the air, the bartender rushed out to promptly put a stop to the creative expression. When pointed out that the man strokin’ the bones was fhe legendary Tom Waits, thebartender swiftly replied “1 don’t give a shit if it was Tom Robinson, no one plays that fucking piano except Keiran Kelleher [the p r o p r i e t o r o f t h e establistient].”

Then I found out that my own personal Jesus was to grace a television abyssnam&heArsenioHallshow. Forgive me for suffering from a mild case of Clay Feet Syndrome, but to +his disciple’ this is analogous to a Bull’s fan finding out that their favourite player is guilty of a gambling addiction. I am a changed m a n t o d a y , b u t n o t s o m u c h a s to appreciate an excellent album when I hear one. For some, Amie can do no wrong (and as an aside for those who feel this way - did you know that upon finding out that the thief responsible for a relatively minor B & E at Schwarzanneger’s residence had died, he then had the responsibility of recompense transferred to the thief’s wife, rendering the woman and her children relatively homeless) and for me, musically, Tommy can do no wrong. Bar Night on Earfh, tk mostly instrumental soundtrack for the Jarmusch film of the same name, Bow Machine is Waits’ first album of new material since 1987% F r a n k ’ s Wild Yew, It is not hard to figure out what’s been on his mind lately.

Lyrically, Waits’albumsleeves read like a good book of poetry (amtherconundrumperhaps?)md

Bone&him is not exempt. He is a chilling storyteller, with an ability tothreadandweavewordstogether like tartan. “Your spirit don’t leave knowing/ Your face or mine/ And the wind through yourbond isaU that remains,” taken from the song “Dirt in the Ground,” exemplifies his adeptness with a quill. Vocally, well, what the fuck do you think? Collaborating heavily on the a l b u m i s T o m ’ s w i f e w h o s h a r e s in all aspects of the album. Guesting on the album are David Hidalgo of Los Lobos fame (piano and violin on “Whistle Down the Wind”), and would you believe, Keith Richards who co-wrote and performed the only uplifting @me on the album, That Feel,”

you’d want to put on at a baby shower. Nevertheless, BoneMachine is enchanting. Waits is a master of exploring redefinition. He is a love him/hate him artist. D&cord is his rhyme and on this album, recorded and produced in a shed, percussion is the instrument of choice+ Not percussion in the traditional sense, but sound as percussion. “I have a lot of

very strong rhythmic impulses,” he says, ‘%ut this is not my world. I just pick something up and hit it, and if I like the sound, it goes on.” Apparently in corroboration with this statement, Waits created a percussive instrument called the “conundrum” whichresemblesa large iron crucifixwith a host of variousmetal objects hanging off it.

WeareaUbonemachines,high or low maintenance. Few are Teady to admit this, even fewer are willing to talk about it. For now, the Tom Waits bone machine is a top-of-theline, purring Caddy, one that shall be regarded with prestige for years to come. This bone machine would like to think that his visit with Arsenio was meant to contrast the difference between a properly running machine and a lemon.

How do you find my Sister, mister? * tage, it does not take away from the power of the songs as units unto themselves, but Momus, as a songwriter, is ultimately using the written word as the base for his work. Analyzing the text of the work only adds to enjoyment one receives from this work. Divorcing the words asheusesth~mfromthemusicraises Momus from a simple popular musician to a writer. All the nuances and wit of Nicholas Currie become evident in the proper light.

T w o weeks a g o , Imprint writer Trevor Blair printed his interview with English singer/songwriter/ pervert Momus (“Momus tfie Unstoppable Sex Machine”). Although interesting to those few people who know who Mbmus (aka Nicholas Currie) is, there can be no understatingMomus%nportan~as the best lyricist working today. When I say the best, I’m including all of the oldest rock stars noted for their words, including men such as Bob Dylan and Lou Reed. Mu& cianswhohdvegainedfamefortheir witticisms such as Morrissey or even (sigh) Meryn Cadell, pale in comparison to the insight whichMomus brings to the microphone.

Lusts ofa Moron, however, provides a third service to the fan. Black Springhasseenfittotypesetthe lyrics in as many different fonts as adds to the words, using up to four different sizes and styles to emphasize phrases. The result is an almost musical reading with one’s eyes jumping around the page flowing with the words.

Iwanttoknowwhatthefuckis going on here. Newspapers like the Toronto Star are doing titerviews previews, and in the case of the entertainment section cover stories on bands like Screaming Trees, Sonic Youth and Sugar. What gives? Once relegated to the lowly back pages of fanzines, the bands that proved the most formative for 80s guitar rock are finally getting the press they deserved a decade late. Formed in the early eighties, SonicYouthwereactiveparticipants in the New York art/noise scene. They gained a reputation early on for being noisy, loud and doing unnatural things to their guitars. In 1985 with the release of Bad Moon Rising, Sonic Youth finally found a method of filtering their noise and amp crushing power throughsome less aggressive melodies. Thirteen years later, Sonic

Youth have proven that they have the skill to stay alive and continue building upon their earlier ideas. Although pigeonholed as a loud noise distortion driven guitar monstrosity, albums such as Sister and Daydreum Nation proved that the Sonic3 can harmonize with the best of them, but that doesn’t stop them from being able to rock like pigs: Their latest album Dirty is no exception, Perhaps the2 best album to date (or at least in the running with Dq&arn -Nation) Dirty captures the Sonics at their best, as a bandwithnohistoryforfallinginto a musical rut, and a band that isn’t about to start. The success of Sonic Youth can largely be attributed to their experimental nature. They smash guitars and you never can get smashed guitars to sound the same. All of the recorded material that was played live forces a reevaluation of the band -and their music. A ‘wash of fuzz, feedback, distortion and power chords, Sonic Youth.prove time and time again

whythey’restillthebestguitarband in America. In some ways, Sonic Youth can be considered one of the first bands to successfully make the altemative/mainstream jump. Their first big commercial success came with Guo, their first release on Geffen. However, for guitarist/vocalist k Ranaldo, it’s par for the course. Imprint had a chance to talk to Lee (who was in Cincinnati) before the show in Toronto last Thursday. As far as the “alternative” / “mainstream” jump, it didn’t seem to fade him. “It% meant a lot of different kinds of changes but we’ve taken it all in stride and welcomed the changes at the time that they hap pen. We get better distribution,better access to finances for videos, a little more financial stability.” And of course there’s a negative side to working for such a big cowration. . . “Therereallyhaven’tbeenany negative sides to it except for the factthatit’salargersituation.You’re selling more records so you move out of a certain kind of obscurity that can be comforting sometimes. But we’ve pretty much got nothing but good things to say about it.” Some of the changes Sonic Youth have gone through include a phase as Video Youth. For their album Goo,“Geffen released a full length video tape of individual videos for every track and snippets of livefootageas well. Ranaldoadmitted that this was a project the band themselves were a part of, “We wanted to do that. It was a chance to give a lot of friends of ours that were filmmakers small budgets to make videos and expose people to other stuff than MTV fare.” Ranaldo also said that the clips of live stage performances at the end of the video (of Ranaldo himself) was actually from a Sonic Youth/Public Enemy concert in Chicago a few years ago. “There’s plans to release some other stuff.

Nirvana - Sub Pop losers go home So do we have hidden Ranaldo tracks, or stashed away Sonic Youth tracks ready to even the balance? “No, not at all. Not at all. We have very little of that kind of stuff that is really finished songs. I’d like to be writing more lyrics, it’s just like I said, during this last year-long period there was just so much other stuff happening I just was preoccupiedandthoseguyswerejustchurning them out.” I a l s o asked Ranaldo about the art located in their latest CD. For those unfamiliar with the “limited edition” version of IMy, it contains, underneath the actual CD holder,agraphicpiecebyartistMike Kelley, who Ranaldo describes as “Pretty well respected, a fine artist. He’s been the subject of dozens of museum shows”. Difficult to describe in words, most would use the title of the album - d i r t y . W h a t did Geffen think of all of this? “They were a little perplexed by it at first, but they’re pretty accommodating to what we want. They didn’t really give us too much trouble about it. Initially it was a little upsetting to them, but then we came up w i t h t h e c o m p r o m i s e o f , first of all, having it be limited and having it have its own catalogue number so that chain stores and people who would probably be upset by it can order the one that doesn’t have it.” For the PMRC or some other organizationnottocreatesomestink ‘over this is rather surprising.

to Mding. It’s just like what’s going on with movies.” All of this seems rather mature. Could it be that there’s actually a Rock ‘n’ Roll band that’s not interestedinjustpissingpeopleoff? Finally I ask Ranaldo the question thatseemstobeoneveryone’smind. Aren’t you guys a little old? How does being ten, fifteen years older than your audience affect your music and what you produce? ‘There’s a certain aspect of distance, and there are other ways in which you’re helping to shape the tastes of ki* that’re coming along. W e s e e m o r e younger ids a t o u r gigs than we ever have before. Certainly it’s due in part to media and NJTVandstufflikethatandtoa certaindegree,it’s youngerkidsthat really make a large part of the concert going audience. We’re just going about with what we do and we feel like we’re pretty in touch with what goes on. Yet there’s other aspects, other things we’re interested in that maybe will take us into other realms where younger kids won’t be following us, and that’s fine too. We’re just going about our work at this point.” And if going about their work meanscrankingoutworksofpower and beauty like Dirty, Duy&twm Nation, Sister, Evol and Brrd Moon Rising, &en they can be called Sonic Youth when they’re sixty-four.
