Acid R&


WPIRG: SPECIAL TO THE IMPRINTDuring the short time since Acid Rain: The Silent Crisis was first produced by Phil Weller and W.PIRG (Waterloo Public Interest Research Group) in September of 1980, events relating to acid rain, some ’ discouraging and others heartening, have continued to unfold. *-a *,, New studies have come to light; Ontario Hydro has been $! given a new control order; and’s Canadian Coalition against ’ Acid Rain has been formed. The United States haselected both ’ a new president and, perhaps of great significance, a less environmentallyI . conscious Senate.

Throughout the past year scientific research has reiterated almost daily the dangers of airborne acid-causing pollutants. The figure initially reported in this book, that 140 Ontario lakes are dead as a result of acid rain, has now risen to between 2,000 and 4,000, as stated~ by an Environment Canada press release (Nov. 17, 1980). ’ Further studies )documeming the effects of acid rain on. plants and soils have also been published. A major study done / by the U.S. Environmental Piotection Agency using simulated, ..I acid rain on agricultural crops<found yields were reduced for five crops (radish, beet, carrot, mustard green and broccoli) although for other plants acid rain was a stimulant to growth.

*Native ‘spirit’


An examination of the effects of acid rain on the forest industry was made by the scientist P. J. Rennie and concluded that acid rain poses problems for’the growth of forests in the nutrient-poor North American soils. . Citizens concerned about this environmental threat can be encouraged by the fact that public outrage over the issue is having a profound effect on policy-makers. Public pressure was indeed responsible for what Ontario Liberal Leader Stuart Smith called “A death bed repentance at election time” (Globe and.Mail, Jan. 27,198 1) when the Ontariogovernment ordered Hydro to reduce emissions. U.S. television stations and newspapers were also flooded with calls about acid rain after a loud and forceful protest greeted President Reagan during his visit to Ottawa. An American State Department official told a group of Canadian environmental& in Washington during-the fifth _ meeting of the Canada L U,lS. Environment Council (March 19 - 21, 1981) that after Reagan’s visit the President was shocked by the level of concern over acid rain. I r

Senator Daniel Moynihan remarked to the same group that it was the best thing Canadians could have done for the issue. Yet, despite some encouraging signs, the assault on the environment from acid rain continues.

people are given a gift by the Creator to help them overcome problems of Spirit. This gift is also a circle, and it is called Caring. People are given caring eyes to see what their neighbours need, caring ears to hear what those around us have to say, a caring mind to think positive thoughts about helping people and a caring behaviour that will make others look up to us and want to do the same. Woods and Thorn spoke to impress upon their- white brothers that their way of living as taught through the circles is not just a religion meant for the days of the bow and arrow, but. that it is a whole philosophy everyone today can live by. They arealso committed to helping other Indians rediscover a proud culture that has been abandoned for the past one hundred years.

To the editor: On May 24 I spoke to the founding conference of the Waterloo-Wellington committee of the People’s Front Against Racist and Fascist Violence, and my remarks were subsequently published in The Chevron. Now I see that a , Mr.. D. Roebuck has written to your newspaper protesting certain of these remarks, and that his .anti-communisttirade is given a prominent place ‘on your editorial page, indicating you regard his views as significant.


Roebuck does not have the integrity to deal with the substance of my speech. Instead; he attempts to smear the People’s Front by attributing our political views to insanity paranoia”, and “demented and he claims that we support the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. . I would hke to challenge Mr. Roebuck to clarify p,osition in’print in your newspaper. Does he seriously maintain t-hat m +&ws in 2 particular arise from mental illness, and does he %kewise claim that I support the Soviet invasion< of Afghanistan and 8 Soviet threats against Poland? ’ Either he makes an ‘tinequivocalstate,ment on these ’ mattersi’or he stands exposed

as a coward who cannot stantiate his assertions.


Two policies of the People’s Front, that a) racist attacks should be combatted with revolutionary violence and b) racists and fascists should have no right to speak or organize, send Roebuck into a fit of hysteria. Apparently he has not learned some important lessons of history, such as the lessons drawn from the experience of Germany during the Weimar Republic ‘or of the United States during the past two decades. People often wonder how the nazis were- able to gain power in Germany or how the Ku Klux Klan came to have some strength in parts of the ‘U.S. The main reason is that too many people relied on the ‘state to stop the fascists ‘and

punishthem fbr their’a;tro-

cious crimes, when in fact the state represented only the. interests of the rich-- and nurtured racism. The rich themselves opted for fascism in order to crush the stmgles of the workers, national minorities, students’ and other people against economic impoverishment and political . r oppression ’ One lesson we draw from these examples as well as our own experience in Canada is that the people who are persecuted and threatened by racists and fascists must form their. own organizations for

disc the human race defines as a hamburger. Every homosapien knows what a hamburger looks like, has touched it, tasted’it, smelled it, and, digested it. Anyone can order a hamburger, right? WRONG!!!! b “I want a plain hamburger with everything on it.” or . . . “Gimme everything on it but relish, mustard, and tomato,” or. .1“ I want a plain hamburg with just mustard and relish.” And the clincher... “I want everything but cheese.” I want to scream. Not only can’t people order what they see, they see things that aren’t there! If a menu offers rice pudding or jello as a dessert choice, nine times out of ten, you’ll be asked for “ice cream” that goes with the dinner. x Desserts are another sweet problem men and women in waiting put up with. You offer different pies, black forest cake and three standard ice creams. “Can I have some cherry cheesecake,” pipes a voice after you tell he or she the sweeter side of the menu. I’d love to say “Sure. Why don’t you go and buy some?’ . Another favourite request is apple pie a la carte. And sure enough, kids always ask for root beer when you tell them the menu offers Coke, Team and orange. It’s enough to make you take your tray ad run. When is this food insanity going to end?

self-defence and wage active resistance against reactionary violence. Only in this way can the rise of fascism in Canada be prevented. If fascists are given freedom to speak and organize, they will use the opportunity to make an assault on the -freedoms of the vast majority of the population and plunge this society into the same kind of chaos and fear which grips so many other places on this globe. It is utterly impossible to guarantee political freedom for racists and fascists while also granting basic freedoms to.the workers and the immigrant communities. The inherently two camps ye opposed and, like fire _and water, cannot co-exist for long. If racists have freedom to -- ---------

propagate their venomous lies and organize, terrorist gangs, then the national minorities thereby lose their right to live in peace without fear of verbal and-physical abuse. In closing, I would like to correct jlusttone of the many errors in Mr. Roebuck’s diatribe. He writes j that -the People’s Front is “a group of Canadian citizens”.’ In fact, many non-citizens, both immigrants and visa students, are members. I belong to \ the People’s Front -but am not a citizen because the Canadian state does not like my political views and refuses to grant citizenship, even though I have been on faculty at the University of Waterloo for eleven years.

I first found out about the game when a female engineering student bitterly complained about the game at women’s meeting at Conestoga College last winter. From her angry and disgusted tone, I , would say that the game had in fact been out of proportion for a long time by then. What was absolutely shameful is that , women were being asked to be “good sports” and play along with the game. Biting women’s buttocks is an assault and can in no way be interpreted as. funny or as a mere lovetap. And, I imagine that there was more than one COBRA who ended up with broken fangs. Heath’s attitude is that sexism really isn’t all that bad particularly if it’s meant to be funny or serves a market or ‘worse yet can be counted as a campus activity. But under any one of those disguises any kind of literature or publication that seeks - to degrade women has no place on this campus or in this society. Once the license is given to allow any-scum to print sexist, or pornographic material that humiliates and degrades women, the freedoms, rights and dignity of women is outrightly denied. A very small group of degenerates are allowed to harm a very large majority of people. But alas Heath reports that Enginews is on the upswing ,

Campus When it comes to giving ___ money-savings advice ‘about -‘entertainment, a person can get himself into a lot of hot water. If you really want to see a movie, you’ll go and see it, j even if it doescost $4.25. (Take your own popcorn and save money!), However, for those evenings when a cheaper alternative is more desirable or even necessary, you- needn’t be restricted to an evening with , “The Dukes of Hazzard”. Even though the university seems to be the source of your financial woes, there are some inexpensive sources on entertainment available on campus. The Campus Centre offers Cinema Gratis (free as the name implies) every Wednesday night at 9:30 in the CC Great Hall. Movies vary from all-time classics to more contemporary flicks. Check the Campus Events or posters

These movies are usually shown Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (but not Sunday in the summer) at 8:00 pm.

meeting. As a result two new clubs were recogn’ized, one club’s proposal was tabled and the Chinese Students Organization’s constitution came under review. Students on this campus can now’ become members of either the Canadian Naturopathic Students Association, U W or the Junior Farmers Club, UW, Both clubs now have on filewith the Board of Entertainment copies of their respective constitutions and objectives for any interested students. However, any students who wish to pursue the MY teachings of Hare Krishna through the Bhakti Yogaclub, will have to wait until further meetings of the Board, since 1



theirproposalwas tabled. This was due in part to that club’s proposed objectives and-co&itution not being made available to Board members before the meeting. The constitution of the Chinese Students Associationcame under fire at the meeting since one of it’s articles contravenes Federation policy regarding guidelines for club membership. Federation policy states that there must be no discrimination against any student or group of students when apply,ing .for membership to any particular club. However, the Chinese Club states that only students of Chinese origin may be full voting member and that any other student may only apply as an associate member. This membership category allows those students to make suggestions at meetings but disallows them the right to

make motions or to vote on them. They are allowed full participation in all other events. The Board has set as a deadline the end of Septkmber for the club to change the constitution. On the subject of finances, it was reported that both the Waterloo Motor Inn pubs and the Fed Flicks are losing money, the pubs so far losing approximately $2750 and the Flicks losing a much smaller $283. The Board gave finaiapproval for the, ‘Ozark Mountain Daredevils as a free orientation concert this fall despite the seven thousand dollar price!tag.

To the editor: . In response to your editorial “Dead is dead; morals are for all”, (June 19 Imprint) the reason certain segments of the labour force need to ‘be governed ‘by a professional code of ethics has nothing to do with endangering people’s lives, but rather with the fact that certain professions have inherent powers of influence or. control over the rest of society. While anyone can tell whether a bus driver is properly performing his job, the average person cannot easily verify the advice of a doctor, engineer, or other pro: fessional. With the- increasing importance of information processing in the business community, computer professionals responsible for valuable data occupy powerful positions within a company.

Media are taking advantage of Terry Fox To the editor: Once again the various media have picked up on the sad plight of Terry Fox. It was bad enough last summer having had our ears plagued by that “musical tribute” which mindlessly reiterated the words “Run, Terry, run”. Then of course, each and every news medium would give a detailed account of Terry’s progress. . Now that Fox has passed on, organizations as wellas the media are paying their respects: flags are flying at half mast, a scholarship has been established, even the last fifty miles -of the Trans-Canada Highway between Nipigon and Thunder Bay is being renamed, all in praise of this

man. God only knows what other *groups are cooking up. It’s not that I have anything against Fox. His intentions were very honourable and I must admit that I certainly could not accomplish anything as physically demanding as what he has done. My real complaint is the media’s treatment of Fox. In their eagerness to dramatize Fox’s life, the media has produced the most tasteless stories that I have ever seen or read. For example, the Globe and Mail carried an article with the hed-line “With a hop and a hope, a brave lad became a nation’s hero”. What further appalled me was discovering that while Fox was still in critical condition, many mediums had created fill-in-theblank obituaries just so that they could present the news of his death as quickly as possible. I also find that the media’s constant repetition of every microscopic detail that they could seize in their greedy hands only surfeits any appetite for knowledge of this man. It is my theory that the individual media are scrambling frantically over one another attempting to get the




best story or picture in order to gain a wider readershiplaudience. This is outright exploitation of Fox. Everyone wants to-be associated with his “good name”. In a similar vein, an item once again in the Globe and Mail arrested my attention. A certain company released an advertisement cleverly disguised as a tribute to Terry Fox. (Of course, the company, name and address was printed in noticeably large print at the bottom). Another point I’d like to make is thiswhat ‘about those who are just as dedicated to a charitable/ humanitarian cause but labour silently behind the scenes? Don’t they deserve acknowledgement as well? Obviously not according to the media. Only. those whose achievements are blatantly visible deserve attention. Furthermore, these unknown workers are still living and can still continue contributing to their specific cause. Unfortunately, Fox is dead and his influence will soon be forgotten. .

The use of Video Display Terminals (VDTs) is harming the health of the people using them, reports the Health bdvocacy Unit of the Department of Public Health for the City of Toronto. A survey by the Swedish National Bureau of Statistics done in 1977 found that: 75% of VDT operators experienced eyestrain; 55% of the operators e@-ienced back and shoulder problems; 35% of the operators experienced head and neck problenis; 25% of the operators experienced arm and wrist problems; 15% of the oper- ators experienced leg probj lems. “Working with VDTs is associated with high Ie4s ofjob stress and certain types of health complaints in a select& manner,” reveals, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH),the research arm df the U.S. Safety and &cupational Realth Administration.

It has been pointed out, rather devastatingly, that the problem with my reviews is that Imake noaesthetic judge-. ments, only moral ones; .and the problem with my personal life is that I make no moral judgements, only aesthetic ones. The latter fact is beyond the scope of this review, if not of this publication; and it’s probably not possible to change the former fact at this late stage. Nevertheless, it may be interesting to examine just why this happens so often. In the case of Killing Joke this is particularly easy. One has only .. .to look. . at .-theI promotional material supplied tith the album: Jaz, Paul, Geordie, and Youth are so far outside the bounds of the music business, and so anti-establishment, that the success of their raison d’etre is a majorachievement, and one they can be proud of.

You see, that description might have come from a journalist, and Jaz, Paul, Geordieand Youthhave a particular distain for journaliSts and their irrelevant questions. The guys do interviews because they consider an interviewer ‘entertainment’. As for the business of making music, they dismiss other bands and their hard work if they think that band’s attitude isn’t honest, ,Whether their attitude ispositive or not, they don’t care; at least they . have an attitude. And voila! there’s suddenly no need to make an aesthetic judgement, particularly when one listens to the throbbing monotony comingoutof one’s speakers.

StipermeZn - s II a@ akction It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Superman II! Everyone’s favourite hero, Superman, has returnedto the silver screen in a movie berift of cliches, but packed full of matinee-type action. Written by Mario Puzo, the story line of Superman II is rather straightforward; three incredibly evil villains, banished from Krypton, come to Earth and attempt to take it over. Of course, this means that Superman and the villains become involved in a violent confrontation. An interesting side plot involves the consummation of Superman’s relationship with Lois Lane. The answer to the question, ‘!Your place or mine?“, is of course, Superman’s Fortress of Solitude. Complete with a silver lamaisstyle bed, Superman’s home is the ultimate bachelor pad. Christopher Reeves is excellent in his portrayal of the Man Of Steel. He k aS credible as the bumbling Clark Kent as he is as the muscular Superman. Reeves has a great sense of comic timing, which no doubt lends to the success of his portrayal. Similary, Canadian actress Margot Kidder creates a mar-

vellously liberated Lois Lane. Rather than the . hopelessly mindless Lois expected, the audience- is treated to a competent and ambitious journalist. Kidder’s slightly bizarre style of humour shines through intober portrayal ‘of Lois, thus creating a believable and likable heroine. Special effects played an important part in the movie. While the flying scenes could have been better done, the destruction of Metropolis (using miniatures?) was superbly executed. The evening theatre audience was composed of many children, as well as adults. The good behaviour of these children was certainly a credit to the high quality of the movie! Never before have we witnessed such an outpouring of enthusiasm from an audience. Cheers, hisses and boos arose spontaneously from adults and children alike. Superman II is an action packed family film . The excitement and intrigue of the movie captures the audience’s imagination and makes the wait for Superman III that much longer’ . -r- Julie

Bon.d is asgoodas -.


Bond is back! 007 has returned to the big screen in an action packed thriller, For Your Eyes Only’. Full of car chases, murders, intrigue and gadgetry, the movie is pure James Bond.

imprint 12,-,



Roger Moore recreates the role of the suave and debonair secret agent James Bond. It is Moore’s off -hand, satirical approach that makes the film such a success. Confronted with even the most evil of villains, Bond is never worried. He is equipped, not only with complex gadgetry, but with a catalogue of witty remarks, appropriate for any life and death situation.

when the plot is stret-

ched to its limit in order to accommodate the quasi-production numbers that invariably star Miss Piggy. There are .also some very slow parts that involve interactions between the muppets and the. “real people”in the movie, and these tend to be the weakest parts of the film. Conversely the strongest parts of the film


are the scenes that center in and around The Happiness Hotel, an old dilapidated hotel that is home for a very ecclectic group of muppets, and a home away from home for Kermit, Fozzie Bear and Gonzo. However, even these brief whimsical moments do little to alleviate the fear that the films’ tempo is not going to pick up. Fortunately, the final scenes, with the successful culmination of the caper, do provide enough action and

excitement to offset the previous-slowness of the film. In all fairness to the film, it is not really meant to be dissected and analysed, and anyone viewing it with that intention will lose a lot of what the film has to offer and will accentuate its faults. It is perhaps for that reason that the ultimate comment should be left up to the kids attending the movie, and it was evident from the bursts of laughter that they were joying the film immensely.

Graham and his character Scott are very similar, and it seems like he experiences his fantasy in this novel.

In only nine issues, Elfhas established itself as the best of the recent wave of self-published comic books, _ and one of the best comic books on the market. Put out by Wendy and Richard Pini, under the auspices of WARP Graphics, Elfquest is excellent in all respects, each issue setting new standards for the . industry. Elfquest is a fantasy about a happy race of forest-dwelling elves who are chasedout of their home by. men. Greatly reduced in numbers, numbed with’shock and betrayed by the cave-dwelling trolls, the “wolfriders” are forced to cross a vast desert, at the far j end of which they find another group of elves. They live in peace with their elven cousins for a few years, until an outcast human family crosses the desert and encounters the two tribes.

Sdzdarship cmztrmms~ mav cause Ontario to 1’ pull out of CIAU’s During the past year, member institutions o’f the Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union (CIAU) have been hotly debating the pros and cons of making athletic scholarships part of the Canadian intercollegiate system. In June 1980, a motion to accept first-party athletic a& wards (given to student-athletes directly by the university) was passed by the necessary two-thirds majorityat , the CIAU’s annual meeting. After vehement opposition from Ontario and Quebec universities, the motion was put on hold for one yearand an ad hoc committee was formed to attempt to find a compromise between the “yes” and “no” factions. When CIAU members met in June -1981, in Ottawa, no acceptable agreement had been worked out between the two sides, and the 1980 motion favoring first-party awards .was put into, effect immediately. In other words, athletic scholarships are now legal according to CIAU standards, though specific guidelines governing them have not yet been finalized. However, the controversy surrounding these awards is

far from over. Eastern and Western Canada schools are elated with the decision to allow financial aid to studentathletes, while Ontario and Quebec remain bitterly opposed. Futhermore, the Ontario Universities Athletic Association (OU AA) has decided not

to participate in CIAU national championships until an acceptable compromise on the awards issue is reached. The OUAA constitution currently forbids league or national competition against scholarship schools. -. This means the 1982 CIAU basketball championships slated for the University of Waterloo have been relocated to the University of Victoria, B.C. The Naismith Classic, an exhiqtion event, will still be staged at UW. OUAA president, Carl Totzke of the University of

with ‘the Atlantic provinces. The OUAA demands strict regulations concerning the

amount of money’given (the proposed maximum is tuition plus 15%) and either recruiting boundaries or quotas set for each geographical area. In addition, Ontario schools insist the money not be given to first year students. The OUAA believes these guidelines would protect .Ontario schools from having their top prospects lured awayby Maritime recruiters’ promises of financial aid. Totzke states that if ‘these proposals are agreed to by Atlantic universities, Ontario institutions

The question of granting athletic schol%rships (“awards”, as Canadians prefer to call them avoiding negative connotations) is again on the floor at the meeting of the CIAU. And the idea of “pay as you play” continues to leave a bad taste in administrators mouths. Indeed, the OUAA is threatening to pull out of the Canadian league championships if they don’t get some guarantee of strict regulating at the very least. Why the ruckus? There is a purist argument that universities ‘i&we not intended to produce athletes - it doesn’t stand up. A convenience of conviction that falls apart because universities weren’t intended to provide pubs or intramurals or Oktoberfests either but we’d scream bloody murder if they threatened‘ our thrills (especially the pub). Sports are a fundamental facet of life for-the general populous. Observe our TV listings, our magazines, our little leauges, our idols. We cried more for Brian Piccolo than Bobby Kennedy! We know Dr. J better than Dr. Christian Barnard. That should tell you something about our values. Why shouldn’t we reward our valuable athletes then? The question of do we or don’t we7 and not even Carl Totzke knows for sure - has an interesting corollary: who does or who doesn’t know? Let’s talk under the proverbial table. In the area not only of offering some little stipend but in the area of recruiting. The OUAA has expressed worry that recruiting athletes would deplete some areas, particularly Ontario, of its home grown heroes.

would remain in national competition, but would not themselves offer awards. However, the Atlantic provinces did not find these proposed regulations acceptable, since-they would place the small eastern universities at a disadvantage nationally. M&time representative’s argue that the sparsely populated area does not contain enough top talent to enable Atlantic schools to be corn: petitive at the national level. Without student-athletes from other provinces and nearby states of the U.S., Atlantic universities fear they could not survive against schools from the larger provinces. Both Ontario’and the Maritimes have a lot at stake here, and Totzke predicts, “It will likely be a while before something is worked out that is

How much more recruiting (or less?) will really go on. It’s interesting to note currently that-some Canadian teams - even OUAA members - have some imports. UVic, whose basketball team took this year’s CIAU championship carries 2 Ontario natives now; Brandon’s Bobcats have 4 from On&o. And if you want- to talk about foreign imports, Acadia has 2 Americans, Brandon carries 3 and the OUAA’s Brock Badgers have two Yankees. Co&cidence? young men in search of better scenery or curricula? Maybe and if that be so, excuse,my seeding implications. .*. but I wonder. It’s interesting to compare the performance of the OUAA teams in Canadian competition. In basketball all three Ontario teams got trampled by teams from other ‘conferences., Wouldn’t there be advantages to encouraging and assisting the local talent? A negative ruling on “awards”, for whatever reason, leaves one person out in the cold; the athlete, the individual who trains and sweats and sacrifices to play. We’re always proud of winners but we ought to remember all those who try: the folks who,‘whether they win or lose, play the game. Time devoted to practices .and games takes away from studies, from employment possibilities, from r & r which the rest of us value. There may be glorious moments but varsity isn’t always a picnic. Our whiz kids have scholarships, our intramural ‘players get their plaques and trophies and even some of our hack writers receive honorariums. Even if what we have to offer is small, should we at least offer? Virginia Butler

A hot topic of debate among the leaders of Canadian intercollegiate sport-is the issue of athletic schola.fships. Advocates of financial . assistance for athletes are confident it would lead to an upgrading of university competition -in. Canada. . \ It is naive to equate scholarships with improved competition. Many other factors must be considered. Schools in Western Canada believe money will keep top athletes from flocking to the U.S. Maritime schools want to use dollars to lure athletes from America and the other provinces. It is evident that these schools view the paycheck as a panacea for their problems. There appears to be a narrow-mindedness here. Perhaps these universities should examine their programs - ‘in terms of facilities, equipment, coaches and competitive league schedules. Granted, there are athletes who leave Canada for the bucks, but almost as many defect because of Perceived differencesin program quality. Would it not be better to channel money into program development, to the benefit of all participants (including intramural athletes), rather than into an awards program where only a select few would gain. The scholarship proponents’ argument that assistance would relieve financial burdens so athletes could spend more time training is also short-sighted. The amount proposed (tuition plus 15%) would obviously be insufficent to finance a whole year of education. Athletes would have to spend the summer working regardless of whether or not they receive scholar-

ships. In addition, most studeits are eligible for OSAP if they need assistance. And the notion that money will. motivate students to continue their education is absurd. If a student has nodesire to learnexcept if being, paid, maybe university is not the best option for that student. On-the-job training may be a better alternative. We have seen educational values subverted in U.S. college sports. Who is to say it will not happen in Canada? When you put money on the line, play becomes business. Players become employees, and coaches, their bosses. And, like in any business< production becomes the bottom line. Constant pressure t6 produce in the gym so that one may remain “employed” next season may lead to a shifting of priorities away from academics. And how could a scholarship program Possibly be regulated? Recruiting violations occur withqut awards - being a Maritimer, I always thought scholarships were legal until I moved to Waterloo. They >were openly discussed among high school athletes. -With dollars, at stake, the problem could potentially become more -serious, especially with *first-party awards. There would be a tremendous pressure on coaches to invest department funds wisely - i.e. on top talent. Many non-athletic students may believe the scholarship debate does not affect them. . However, the money which would pad the athlete’s bank accounts would probably lighten the pocketbooks of the majority of students, since student athletic fees are the primary source of revenue for most Canadian athletic departments. The issue is one whichail students should concern themselves with.
