VOL. 38 ISSUE 10 - Thursday, November 19, 2009








A look at the ethical grey-areas involved with film-making, through the experiences of one former Dawson student.

When students studying in Communications finally graduate from Dawson, they will learn that, whether they wish to be a journalist, newscaster, or freelance writer, it is important to be a reliable and trustworthy individual; Someone who can be entrusted with important statements, growing ideas, or exclusive plans; Someone with a strong sense of ethics who can follow a plan, and who will, while under pressure, stick to the task at hand and not give in to their own feelings. This is the moral dilemma that many people must face in their everyday jobs. It is also the dilemma that most Dawson students, come graduation, will find themselves facing. Catherine Therrier is a Montreal-based freelance filmmaker and a former Dawson student who has had

t o learn, throughout the years, when to put her own opinions aside and continue with the job at hand. “Having morals and ethics is important because it makes you who you are, but when your job is representing someone else's vision, you have to learn to keep your view out of it.” This is especially true in Catherine's case, since, as a filmmaker, her work will usually be viewed by the major public through mass media. Ethical decisions based on her own morals can affect not only her own reputation, but her client's.

“Dawson was a perfect place for me to express my opinions, especially since I was in Communications, where we were taught to express ourselves using every different type of media.” -Catherine Therrier, filmmaker

At thirty years old, Catherine is still as bright and youthful as she was during her days at Dawson, yet she claims that she used to be much more opinionated and strong-willed than she is now, as she was always speaking her mind and attending every protest she could. “Dawson was a perfect place for me to express my opinions, especially since I was in Communications, where we were taught to express ourselves using every different type of media.” Despite becoming a filmmaker, she says that journalism was her main inspiration, since “journalists inform the rest of the world through their experiences and the way they describe them,” Catherine said. “In that sense

the plant

[journalists] have a huge responsibilty on their shoulders. I liked that.” She says it was difficult to tone down her strong moral views, but she admits that since becoming a f i l m maker, she has

not often encountered situations where she was forced to make serious ethical decisions. So she was asked to pretend. In our ever-growing world, the advertising industry is so enormous and rapidly-expanding that there is practically a never-ending supply of businesses who desperately need filmmakers to relate them to the public. Sometimes Catherine enjoys working for certain companies; Sometimes she even supports them and their causes. But sometimes she doesn't. She believes that if a corporation such as Nike, known for hiring children in third-world countries, approached her to make a short, expensive commercial for them, she would simply decline. “ I've asked myself that question before,” Catherine said, “and I know I would never feel right working for a company like that[...] I know it sounds cheesy, but I just feel that my morals are too strong for me to work for such a big company.” However, she mentioned that if the company was perhaps, for the project, collaborating with an artist or activist that she admired, or a cause that she believed in, that she would be much more willing. “ When you're faced with an ethical situation alone, you feel a lot less strong,” she said “but when you've got some backing, or when you feel part of something, it usually empowers you to keep doing what you think is right.” After talking about abandoning her principles for a corporation, Catherine was faced with a new hypothetical situation. If a law firm known mainly for defending white-collar criminals in cases involving fraud, tax-evasion, and bribery wanted to hire her to make a public-friendly advertisement for their business,

would she accept such a contract. “ I hate to say this, but it would depend on my financial situation,” she

said. She would be worried, however, of being labelled as an opinionated filmmaker, especially if it is for something she does not believe in. “ Thankfully, in this business, it is possible in the business to do contracts for people with a certain level of anonimity in order to discredit yourself. If there was a way for me to distance myself from a project like that, then I probably would do it,” she

“ When you're faced with an ethical situation alone, you feel a lot less strong,, but when you've got some backing, or when you feel part of something, it usually empowers you to keep doing what you think is right.” -Therrier

said. Although Catherine used to be a politically active student, she feels she would never produce a public relations advertisement for a political party. “ It's not that I wouldn't do it for the side I didn't support,” she said,” I wouldn't do it for either side.” Although she used to be a politically-motivated person, she does not want it to be part of her everyday job. She doesn't want to be labelled as a politicallycharged filmmaker, since it would overshadow the rest of her work. “ I would never do any ad for any party during an election.” she added, “ The motivations are too coldhearted.” Later, Catherine wondered if her morals could withstand the realities of war and conflict. Taking last summer's violent protests in Iran and the harrowing footage news audiences saw as an example, she imagined if she had taken the footage herself. Would she sell the footage to the large western news corporations? “ I would if I knew it would have a large positive impact, like educating the rest of the world about such a shocking situation.” she said. “ To make sure of that,” she added, “ I wouldn't allow the footage to be exclusive to a certain news network. I would try to give

it to as many agencies as possible.” “Or what if I was in the Middle East, and I witnessed a man beating his wife in the street while other citizens

simply walked by,” Catherine asked herself. “My initial response,” she said, would be to try and stop this beating.” However, she questioned if stopping this woman from getting beaten in the street would only fuel the husband's anger and beat her even worse in their own home. “Maybe the husband would blame his wife for letting a westerner interfere. It is, after all, a foreign country with a foreign culture.” she said. Perhaps, she wondered, she could do more if she were to stay true the duty of her job and instead capture this act on film. What if she detached herself from the situation and later showed her footage on the news? Would it spark a human rights movement? Maybe. But maybe not, and in that case she would have let the woman get beaten in vain. But, she said, although it would be hard for her morally, she would try to follow through with the duty of her job, and try to have the biggest impact possible. As a filmmaker, Catherine Therrier has learned to keep her emotions aside for the benefit of a project. It is the kind of professionalism any filmmaker should remember. A good photojournalist, for example, might refrain from acting morally in the moment so that his photographs might later influence the world. However, it is also true that a filmmaker's strong code of ethics will help him become better in his craft which, in the end, after being an advantage to everyone around him, becomes an advantage for himself. “ The hardest part of it,” Catherine said “ is pushing your own morals aside. But then again, this is my everyday job, so I've had to learn to be professional. If I didn't, It wouldn't have worked out for me.”

Dawson’s Capitalist Cafeterias

VOL. 38 ISSUE 10 - Thursday, November 19, 2009

FEATURES EDITOR: Alessia Faustini


By Marc-Olivier Fortin, Catherine L vesque, Anne-Julie Dubois and Francesca Manno

Isn’t it frustrating to go to a store and buy an overpriced item, knowing very well that it could be found at a lesser cost elsewhere? For example, has anyone bought a cheeseburger for $ 4.75 at any place other than the Dawson cafeteria? Or a fork for $ 0.30? At Dawson, students who go to the cafeteria to buy a meal or any kind of food are being ripped off. If you look at the table provided, you can easily see that most of the other CEGEPs have relatively acceptable prices at their cafeteria. A cheeseburger for $2.75 is decent and is certainly a better price when compared to our delicious $4.75 Kraft-cheeseburger available here at Dawson. Now, our cafeterias have a lot of competition around the school. Looking around Dawson College, one might notice that there are plenty of different restaurants as well as two student-friendly food courts within walking distance: one at Alexis Nihon Plaza and the other one at Westmount Square. Taking that into consideration, both the third-floor and the Atrium cafeteria should have lowered their prices in order to stay in competition with these other establishments, but they did not and that is where the problem lies. Dawson’s cafeteria needs to lower the prices mainly because it would put more money into students’ pockets. As a direct consequence, the cafeteria would attract more customers and would therefore make more money in the long run, satisfying everyone. Of course, if you find the prices the plant

to be too high, it is a personal choice not to shop from the schools cafeterias. However, people are still buying from them because students and teachers are paying mostly for convenience. Just take a look at the Laurentian banks that took over all the metro stations recently. They have been placed there because smart businesspeople know that people are going to use their cash machines, as they are more conveniently located. Most people are not going to wander around for an hour to find the right cash machine affiliated to their own bank account. They are willing to pay the 1.75$ fee to get their cash, because... well, they need cash right away. The same thing goes on at Dawson’s cafeterias. Hungry students need food right away, but a 15-minute break is insufficient time to go to Alexis Nihon and buy a more economical meal. Students then go to the cafeterias because it is more convenient. However, if students and teachers take action and decide to stop buying food there, even if it is convenient, the cafeterias would eventually notice a decrease in their sales, and would eventually adjust their prices to attract the students who opted to go to other nearby businesses. Dawson College has had a contract with Chartwells, the food supplier, for over twenty years. Prices have gone up, whereas the food quality and quantity have only diminished. Dawson's only provider of food and beverages makes considerable profit off hardworking students' backs,

the same students who attend classes, hold part-time jobs folding sweaters at Old Navy and who may require financial help in the future. We believe that students should benefit from buying food at school, instead of being treated solely as profitproviders for a corporation. In order to induce change, Dawson's cafeterias should get out of their comfort zones and make significant modifications. Usually, small schools have only one cafeteria. At Dawson, however, we have plenty of space to have different cafeterias that can create competition within the college itself. For example, a different company than the Atrium cafeteria can own the third-floor cafeteria in order to provide competition among them. This would force them to decrease their prices in order to attract more students and to eventually produce more profit. We do not care what the terms of the contract are or how the economic recession has influenced cafeteria prices. There are enough students in Dawson College to create a competitive market and put the cafeterias in a position of decreasing their prices. We encourage everyone to think twice before buying products at the cafeteria, because after all, if we want things to change, we need to take action. That is what New School students are doing right now. Join our Facebook group "Dawson Cafeteria must lower their prices!" to express complaints, suggestions, or to share cafeteria stories.

What do you hate the most about the voices editor? “Wow, what a self-centered question. No one gives a shit about that guy.” Will O. – Third Semester – Commerce

Consider this: The amount of people that care about a particular person is directly related to the amount of people that know and crowd themselves around that particular person. That being said, I probably know more people than you will ever know. So logically speaking, you smelly piece of dick cheese, people do give a shit about me, and less people give a shit about you. Get mercʼd.

“I actually hate nothing about him, I just feel sorry for him because heʼs going to die alone.” Raphael N. – Third Semester – Health Science

Donʼt feel sorry for me. If I die alone it will be of my own accord. Feel sorry for yourself, for not fully understanding your place in this bucket of shit weʼve all learned to call “society”.

“I donʼt read his fucking column. Itʼs pure shit. Now itʼs his turn to insert a witty comeback. Good fucking job.” Stephen S. – Third Semester – Commerce Girl I refuse, you must have me confused with some other guy, the bridges were burned, now its your turn, to cry... cry me a river, cry me a river, cry me a river, cry me a river, yeh yeh.

tthhee ppllaanntt

“I hate that he doesnʼt have anything nice to say… and I know that heʼs going to say something mean now.” Gabriela S. – Fifth Semester – Theatre

If you were to see me sighing as I read this, youʼd understand my predicament. Gabriela, I have so many nice things to say, but that shit just doesnʼt fly in Word in The Herd. So Iʼll leave you with this: Damn fucking straight Iʼm going to say something mean. I think all theatre students are self-absorbed cry-baby fucking idiots, who canʼt take a shred of criticism when they produce a bad play.

“He doesnʼt write the good shit anymore; he went soft.” Ben D. – Twenty-Ninth Semester – Social Sciences

My dick went soft when I saw that you were in you twenty ninth semester. I wonʼt even be able to rage on you now.

“I think itʼs time for him to shut the fuck up and graduate.” M.B. – Third Semester – Commerce

If this was on the Internet, Iʼd reply to this with an ehl-oh-ehl. But since this is in The Plant, Iʼll just have to assure you that when I read this I laughed really hard. Furthermore, the next time you choose to respond to a Word in The Herd question, give us a full fucking first name next time.

“I love Annand! Heʼs so awesome!” Daniel D. – Third Semester – Cinema, Video & Comm.

Thatʼs ironic, because I despise you. Do you want to know why? Because you just said something positive and I thrive off of negativity. Fucking asshole.

“Quite honestly, I donʼt appreciate his view on things. His comments are just rude. His persona of an asshole isnʼt necessary.” Audrey M. – Third Semester – Arts & Culture My views on things are as realistic as they get. And my persona is nothing but a tool to reel in the majority of dumb idiot Dawson kids, who refuse to pick up a college newspaper for anything short of mindless entertainment. Besides, ever since I met my girlfriend a year ago, people have been complaining Iʼve gone too soft.

Liz: What made you think I was gay? Jack: Your shoes. Liz: Well, I’m not gay. Jack: Those shoes definitely bi-curious the lantare Modern Warfare 2 is nothing short of amazing. At one point, during the campaign, I was the p almost brought to tears because I was just so happy. I was so happy that it was finally
