n Monday September 25 University of Waterloo President James Downey and Vice President Academic Jim Kalbfleisch hosted ameeting for UW Department Heads, Association Presidents, and others to discuss the transfer cuts the province is expected to impose on universities in the upcoming fiscal year. President Downey set the tone for the meeting by opening with the statement that, “We don’t know much, but what we know, you should know.” The cuts are expected to amount to almost $270 million in the next fiscal year alone. This information is based on the Conservatives’ election platform document, termed the Common Sense Revolution. Since the election, neither Premier Harris nor any members of his Cabinet have demonstrated any intention to stray from this blueprint. In fact, after examining the government accounts left them by their NDP predecessors, the Tories pronounced the situation worse than expected, and left the possibility open for more cuts than already announced. The exact value of cuts Waterloo will face will remain unknown until the Ontario government releases its first financial statement this fall. The date of the financial statement has been pushed back so that the government will know the results of the Quebec referendum before trying to forecast interest rates. Downey announced

that he and other university presidents are doing theirbest to minimize the cuts. Downey has met with the Deputy Minister of Education and Training three times, and Minister John Snobelen twice,

When meeting with these government officials, university representatives are putting forward three basic arguments. First, that universities have already done their share of cutting. UW already absorbed a 1% cut midway through this year, which forced administrators to absorb a $1.2 million revenue shortfall. Further, according to

Universities must be an integral part of that eventual solution, and if universities are hurt irreperably in the short term, they will not be able to play that role in the long term. According to Downey, this was the only argument which puts a glimmer in bureaucrats’ eyes. “If we were making [these arguments] before an independent arbitrator, we would carty the day,” Downey commented. Despite this, he believes that “the best we can hope for is the $400 million cut mentioned in the Common Sense Revolution...

James Downey never thought he’d ask government to cut %nly $400 million!” the Council of Ontario Universities (COU), the percentage of university operating revenue derived from Ontario Grants has declined from about 77% in 1984-85, to about 70% in 149394. Second, universities in Ontario are funded more poorly than those in other jurisdictions, both in Canada, and in the United States. If Ontario wishes to continue producing first-rate graduates, then it must maintain a firstrate education system. The final argument the COU has employed is that even a government so deficit-conscious as the Tories must eventually provide its electorate with some positive expression of policy.

I have seen nothing to make me think that number will soften.” Therefore, the proposal that Downey and others have been making to the government is to limit the cuts post-secondary education faces to the initially-announced $400 million, to spread these cuts over two years to allow universities more time toprepare adequately for these cuts, and to “announce a tuition fee policy.” Federation of Students President Jane Pak felt that there was one more argument Downey should be making to the Ontario government. With Federal cuts around the comer, it would be wise for senior university administrators to try and have this

Fall ‘,

treated as a cut to general revenue, rather than as a cut to the post-secondary education sector. Said Pak, “I think we need to look at the long term as well.” In fore:casting these cuts, Vice President Kalbfleisch assumed that the government would only cut the already-announced $400 million; that only two-thirds of this cut would arrive immediately in the next year; and that tuition will increase again by ap- : proximately 10%. Using [these assumptions which he admitted could easily all be wrong - Waterloo will be left with a $10 million shortfall next year, the equivalent of a 7% budget cut. As Kalbfleisch made this announcement, several people present at the meeting grumbled that he was presenting a “bestcase scenario.” In the face of this, Dr Kalbfleisch announced a hiring freeze, applying to all contracts for academic and non-academic staff whose contracts will extend beyond Ma:y of 1996. This includes all contracts currently under review in the Human Resources Office for which offers have not yet been extended. Although Teaching Assistants are not affected, the fate of co-op students for the summer semester has not yet been determined. While this action will be reviewed after the government announces the extent of the cuts, it could continue if the cuts are as bad as anticipated. Kalbfleisch was clear in his assertion that there is “no way we can make a substantial reduction Continued

t’s been six months since the expansion of the new Student Life Centre (SLC) was completed seven months behind schedule. Students attending school during the spring term were able to enjoy the full benefits of the new complex which houses many student-operated and funded services including the Bombshelter pub commonly referred to as the “Bomber.” But a close inspection of the interior of the Bomber should reveal a conspicuous lack of space. The space in question is the area formerly occupied by the Wild Duck Caf6, which was to be an expansion of the Bombshelter. Why then, has the construction on this expansion ceased? The simplest and most obvious of answers is funding. The Federation of Students had “a tough year financially last year,” says Federation of Stu-

before the Student Life Centre opened. Eventually the Federation of Students refunded the twenty-five dollars paid by students in Fall 1994, but collected the fee in Winter 1995 since the SLC was opened in March of that term. The $25 fee, according to the terms of the agreement, should fund capital1 costs, including the cost of building the new addition. “There has been no understanding that this money could be used for renovations in the retail space of the Centre, and given that perception, there is no way that the $25 fee could be used,” says Sproule.

he future of the University’s United Way campaign is in jeopardy, as the Faculty Association Board is about to enter into discussions with their membership which will determine the future of that organization’s participation. UW’s United Way Campaign Co-ordinator, Helen Kilbride asserted that the Faculty Association would already have withdrawn their endorsement of the Campaign, except that no one had bothered to inform the United Way. Further, according to information received by Kilbride, the Faculty Association’s initial decision to withdraw support was based on false information. Kilbride stated that the Faculty Association was unhappy with the United Way because it “excludes Planned Parenthood [from funding] but includes Birthright. That information is incorrect. I don’t comment on these decisions, I don’t make them.” While neither organization is

funded by the United Way, anyone can make contributions to these organizations - or any other registeredcanadiancharitythrough the on-campus campaign. In fact, last year’s campaign raised about $5 600 for Planned Parenthood. Professor Ian MacDonald, President of the Faculty Association, noted that the Faculty Association is moving away from endorsing groups, even charitable groups. Members may feel pressured to direct their charitable donations away from their normally favoured groups. According to MacDonald, the Faculty Association is in favour of members donating a portion of their income to charity. Unfortunately, many members became uncomfortable with the United Way after it removed Birthright and Planned Parenthood from the groups it funds. Last year’s United Way campaign raised more than $149 000, over 99% of its target. While it is unclear exactly how much money the United Way would lose if the Faculty Associ&ion did withdraw

support, 70% of UW’s faculty are members. MacDonald was clear in stating that the Association would in no way discourage or impede donations to the United Way should the faculty direct its Association to withdraw support. The funds raised have grown steadily from year to year, as need has increased in the community. The United Way funds sixty separate agencies in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. Some of these include the Independent Living Centre, the Food Bank, a credit advisory group, and K-W Counselling Services. Planned Parenthood and Birthright are highly controversial groups because they epitomize the prochoice/pro-life debate. Planned Parenthood provides family counselling which includes abortion as an option. This is unacceptable to many people who think that abortion is equivalent to murder, Birthright is a family counselling organization which does not acknowledge abortion as an option for women-faced with pregnancy.

hursday, September 21 marked the 11 th year for the l Take Back the Night march in the Kitchener-Waterloo Region. Take Back the Night is a march in which women walk together in solidarity, displaying their concerns about violence against women. The walk is a symbol which represents women’s basic human rights to be where they want, when they want, how they want, with whom they want, alone, without men and without violence. The first march was a gathering of 50 people; over the years the* turnout hascontinued togrow. This year 400 women gathered at Waterloo Park and 100 more women joined in along the way. The night began with women making placards and banners, and a rally that included candles, drummers, a brief history of Take Back the Night, and singing. Some of the placards included such messages as “My Body is my Own and Don’t You Forget it,” “Life for Pedophiles,” and “Stop Violence Against Women,” The route began in the park and continued along King St. to finish at Kitchener City Hall. Duringtheentiremarchwomen could be heard chanting, yelling, and singing. Spirit was especially raised when people along the sidelines and in cars showed their support. Some women were angry at night violence that has occurred and is occurring to women. Others felt hope after seeing so many women committed to ending violence and excitement of everyone being together. After the march, women and men listened to speakers Naila Jusufragic, of a multireligious Bosnian women’s support group,

Maria Alvarez, a teacher and memher of the YWCA board, and Rose Simone, KitchenerWaterloo Record reporter and former feminist columnist. Issues brought up included rape as part of war, problems of immigrant women and children, and the Ontario government cuts affecting single mothers and children. Speeches were followed by a minute of silence in memory of all women who have suffered from

dent Association is Waterloo’s federal lobby group. It has begun a national campaign revolving around “Making Higher Education Work.” The campaign started September 2 1, but Waterloo Student Councillors postponed their decision until Wednesday to give themselves more time to become educated and to speak to their constituents. Over fifty students who aren’t members of Students’ Council attended. Those who spoke were unanimous in their opposition to any endorsement of the paper. Many also challenged the legitimacy of Students’ Council. Federation President Jane Pak started the meeting with a brief presentation of the paper’s suggested policies. Noting the many misconceptions regarding the paper, Pak asked the audience to judge the paper as a whole, to judge it on its merits, and cautioned that, “voting in favour [of endorsing the paper] doesn’t mean endorsing every single sentence [in the paper].” Discussion and questions quickly grew heated. Engineering Councillor Mario Bellabarba commented that after-consulting his constituents, his only thoughts were, “My God, what were these people thinking... CASA seems to be ramming this down our throats!” Arts Co-Op student Paul Skippen returned to Waterloo from a work term to attend the meeting, calling it “shameful” that no Co-Op students had been consulted in this process. Many Councillors seemed in favour of endorsing only the first three sections, leaving the most contentioussection-describing the education surtax - unapproved. While acknowledging that as an option, Pak instead asked that Council endorse the entire paper, “with a noted resignation on the fourth secThe exact difference betion.” tween the approaches seemed lost to most of the spectators. A majority of the members of Students’ Council opposed any



ment. Bellabarba asked, “What difference does it make to CASA if Waterloo doesn’t like the fourth section?” Others were upset with the whole process. Engineering student Stefan Dudycha spoke out that the so-called “Discussion Paper” was not a discussion paper, and that the options it presented were not acceptable. He further expressed his frustration at Pak’s continual references to CASA in the first person, exclaiming that, “It’s now time to represent the people of the University of Waterloo !” Pak responded saying, “I apologize if that’s the perception you have.” Arts representative Richard Farmer stated his opposition based on his belief that students should pay for their own education, not the tax system. He also announced his

The final tally of the vote was three in favour, three abstentions, and fourteen opposed. Many remained unhappy after the meeting. Dudycha stated that Jane Pak’s abstention OI-I the motion, after hearing near-unanimous opposition from the students, “showed she couldn’t separate her duties as a member of CASA from those as President of the University of Waterloo Federation of Students.” Skippen remained unhappy


despite the defeat of the motion. In his opinion, the process was not open enough. Aside from the lack of any effort to consult off-campus students, Skippen faulted Council for keeping this decision to themselves. “My impression of Students’ Council is that they could decide what kind of ice cream toppings should be used at Orientation functions, they could do that without consultation. For real issues, especially in this case, a lifetime of tax, it should have been a much more open consultation.” Commenting on this after the meeting, Pak defended the Federa. mn’s approach. “The attempt was there... we tried to use the structure in place, pushing for accountability.” Pak commented that although the decision was delayed from September so that Councillors could become more informed, she still heard Councillors misrepresenting issues in the discussion paper, Math student Ron Servant was upset for other reasons. “The sole reason we are not participating [in the national campaign] is Mario Bellabarba. He was the first to speak up against, and the rest of Council followed his lead.” Servant believes that Waterloo has lost an excellent opportunity to lobby the federal government. Rather than reject the paper, he would have preferred to see Councillors develop amendments. Servant may get his wish. When asked where the Feds go from here, Pak said that she will continue to discuss these issues with students, noting that, “I think we’ve got momentum now.”

CASA by Norm Furtado Imprint staff


he Canadian Alliance of Student Associations (CASA) has released a controversial alternative model for the funding of post-secondary education. This was the topic of discussion of the poorly advertised forum sponsored by the UW Federation of Students’ Council which was held Tuesday, September 26 in Engineering Lecture Hall. The fact that notices were posted only hours before the scheduled meeting time of 5:30 p.m. didn’t deter some students from attending and discussing the CASA proposal entitled “Making Higher Education Work.” The document, which outlines suggestions for maintaining a freeze of tuition while securing funds from other sources, was received by the Students’ Council in early September. It was to be decided whether UW would join the sign-on campaign already in progress, but members of the council had decided to delay decision-making until more information could be obtained and until the proposal could be pre-

sented to the various societies on campus. It is, however, unfortunate that despite the efforts by the Feds, many students are still unaware of the proposed model which would surely affect them for years to come. The students present at the forum on Tuesday night mostly opposed the proposed model. They were also disappointed by the number of “holes” left in the document and the mediocre responses to their many questions of concern. The decision was made on behalf of all students at UW by the council, but some other institutions, who are members of CASA, have decided to host referenda to allow the general student population to voice their opinions. UW’s Feds note that a formal referendum would cost between seven and ten thousand dollars to conduct and this money is simply not available, says Xander LeRoy, who hosted the Tuesday night Forum. The little publicity the proposal received cannot, however, outweigh the controversy arising from the document’s contents. The model consists of four different elements, of which the first three in-

volve reorganization of the funding and spending infrastructure. The last issue outlined in the proposal, which deals with finding new sources of funding for Higher Education, is the most controversial. It outlines the basic provisions for a new tax to be levied on all university graduates. The document is available from the Fed office, but here is a brief summary of the 28-page proposal. Firstly, the plan recommends that provincial governments treat cuts in transfer payments as lost general revenue and not as specific cuts to health care, welfare and education. This would be implemented as a short-term solution. The Summary also calls Xander for medium-term solutions such as the elimination of the Canadian Health and Social Transfer. Under the present hierarchy, the federal government of Canada grants one lump sum to each province to be used in education, welfare and health care. Thus, when funding to health care is increased,

a deep


funding toeducation or welfare will be decreased. In addition, the plan calls for the return to a version of the Established Programs Financing system (EPF), with added security measures to protect the portion of the funding that goes to support higher education. “Governments cannot expect to create a ‘learning culture’ in Canada if they continue to withdraw funding from the country’s institutes of higher learning,” reads a 3-page summary of the CASA proposal entitled “Setting a Vision: Executive Summary.” The second part of the proposal makes the recommendation that “Universities must be thought of as being part of a ‘system’ of education, and it must be made clear that they each have different missions within that system.” This would mean that performance indicators, the specifics of which have not yet been addressed by the document, would have to be utilized to monitor the progress of the institution at achieving their mission.

The proposal outlines provisions for the rationalization of admi.nistrative services among institutions in the same region. This concept has been practisecl to a limited degree between the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University. Under the new proposal, for example, universities in the same region, such as UW and WLU, would share a purchasing department or a mail service. Rationalization would be subject to the scrutiny of an outside body to prevent the creation of fewer, larger institutions, which is not the intent of the suggestion as outlined in the document. Such rationalization would cut administrative costs, but probably not to the degree required to meet the goals of the plan. The CASA proposal also suggests that one National Distance Education University be established to perhaps eliminate these departments, and hence their funding, from the many institutions across Canada which already provide such services. The goal of such an institution would be to make higher education cheaper and more accessible. University programs could also be offered through the college system. The third section of the document calls for the introduction of a mechanism which would require that professors be accredited as professional teachers and it suggests the eliminationl of the “academic guild’ which would give students much more flexibility in choosing courses and programs. “The purpose of an undergraduate education should shift from being an attempt to learn a body of knowledge to being an exercise to learn a body of critical skills which will allow someone to master different bodies of knowlContinued

edge over their lifetime,” states a three-page summary of the lengthy proposal, (available from the Federation of Students Office). The final suggestion made in the CASA model involves the taxation of all university graduates in the workforce as well as corporations. It is generalized that these two groups stand to benefit most from higher level education. The document maintains that raising tuition fees is not an acceptable method of raising funds for universities and that new sources of funding must be found. More precisely, an Education Beneficiary Fund would be created to supplement tuition fees so that they would stay at their current level. Tuition will still increase with inflation but it is assumed the fund will prevent the dramatic sky-rocketing of tuition fees which has been expected by students for some time. The Education Beneficiary Fund is to be comprised of a Graduate Beneficiary Contribution and a Corporate Beneficiary Contribution. The fund will be collected via the aforementioned tax, but the money will not be rendered to the federal government. Instead, ajoint federal and provincial committee will be responsible for allocating the funds back into post-secondary education according to the performance indicators, on a project-funding basis. The tax rate will be levied between 0.5 and 1.75 percent, depending on the level of degree earned or the size of the corporation. For graduates, the tax will be charged on that portion of their income which exceeds the average yearly wage for non-university graduates, which is currently $21 Ooo. This means that if a graduate student earns $50 000 a year, $29 Ooo of that income is subject to the new tax. The summary explains that “The Corporate Beneficiary Contribution could take the form of a ‘pay-or-play’ tax upon corporations. Many companies already make donations to universities for scholarships, research and development, etc. and they should not be further punished by new taxes. On the other hand, there are a significant number of corporations with less [than] stellar records as corporate citizens who should be subject to such a tax.” If the plan is accepted by the federal government (an action still months or possibly years away), it will affect all university graduates currently in the work force. It is not limited only to students who graduate after the plan is implemented since such a limitation would make no difference in funding for the next 17 years. The taxing of a university education raises many questions which the obscure CASA document has not yet addressed. One issue involves domestic students who later migrate to the United States. In this case, these students benefit from lower tuition fees but don’t contribute to the Graduate Beneficiary Contribution. And foreign students, who already pay much of the full tuition costs, have been overlooked in the document altogether.

Another concern is that alumni donations will significantly decrease since these same alumni will be forced to contribute via the Graduate Beneficiary Contribution. It is expected that the Funds will contribute more money to university education than alumni donations, and there is no evidence yet to suggest that alumni will cease donating money to the university of choice. In contrast, the two Contributions are redistributed to all Canadian universities according to the performance indicators. The most poignant and feared concern is that the federal government will misuse the tax. Ironically, a student-based association is lobbying the federal government

31bank of Canada, llceniee of trade-mark

to impose a tax on university graduates. Once the tax is in place, there is no provision in the document to prevent the federal government from raising the rate beyond the 1.75% upper limit, or from completely eliminating transfer payments and making the Education Beneficiary Fund the primary source of funding for higher education. But the distribution of funds will be controlled by a joint committee comprised of both provincial and federal representatives. The money collected is to be wholly reinvested in education, as outlined in the proposal. The campaign has already be-

gun, but UW has not yet signed on, pending the council decision made on Wednesday. The referenda to be conducted at other institutions across Canada are scheduled on the same day, October 25, so as to gain publicity for the plan. The campaign has already gained support from various organizations including the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, the Canadian Labour Congress and Frank McKenna’s Liberals in New Brunswick. Even if students across the country accept the proposal, it does not denote acceptance of its recommendations by the federal govemment. If, however, the CASA proposal is approved, its effect will not

be limited to institutions who are members of CASA or its graduates. It will affect all universities and all graduates and all corporations across Canada. Copies of the paper are available at the Federation of Students office, or by calling Federation of Students President Jane Pak at extension 2478.

WOW... People Care!! CASA, EBF, GBC, CBC, CHST, PSE... I could go on and on. These are all acronyms that have to do with a huge project that the Federation of Students may be involving itself in: The Real Choices Campaign. This is a lobbying campaign of CASA (the Canadian Alliance of Student Association), of which UW’s Feds are a member; you are a member. The issues involved with the Real Choices campaign are huge, and they affect all of us. Huge buckets of millions of dollars are being hackedaway from Post-Secondary Education (PSE), and the government is not going to put any insight into how to hack with the least bleeding, unless someone does some gentle “nudging” (as Dr, Downey would put it) toward a solution that will hurt the least. CASA has decided to present the government with a possible alternative funding model (alternative to just hacking the money directly and blindly). This could be a great model that the government decides to implement, or it may suck; but the government will at the very least have to be impressed with the amount of work, initiative, and thought student leaders have put into a problem that legislators get paid big bucks to face. Instead of whining and crying after the cuts, CASA is being pro-active. Well, CASA is suggesting that the government face the following challenges: re-orienting our system of education and finding new sources of funding for PSE. CASA suggests that to tackle the first part, students should be given much more flexibility in choosing courses and expand their skills as well as knowledge base. Also, univeristies need to cut some overlap. The popular example here is: why do UW and WLU not share their purchasing departments, or more academic programs? CASA suggests cutting beurocracy internal to universities, but also internal to the education system. Why are there ten Ministers of Education, when many countries, such as England and France have just one. CASA also suggests that universities need to link up with business and the government to gain a better understanding of the labour market. Also suggested is that universities should be evaluated by the business and graduate community

well they are meeting the needs of that market. Professors should be teachers. Yes, they should know everything there is to know about everything, but they should also be able to teach and relay that knowledge. On the funding side of CASA’s proposal, it has been suggested that increasing tuition fees is absolutely OUT OF THE QUESTION! Rather, CASA suggests implementing an Education Beneficiary Fund (EBF). This would be a pond of moneymeant specifically for PSE. Would this fund be created from a CASA Lotto 6-49 winfall? NO! CASA suggests funding it with

wrap their heads around it. Now, I am certainly by no means shocked that some UW students were able to understand and articulate concerns; however, I am surprised at the issue. I am thrilled with the outcome of Tuesday night’s meetings. Jane Pak, the president of the Federation of Students has been working since May with the other ten member schools of CASA on the document under fire: Making Higher Education Work. I am sure that Jane has often felt that people around the Fed office didn’t care, let alone students who haven’t been around the issues as much. But this week has proven her so wrong. I read this document weeks ago,

W is too bad that the first time people are paying attention to it is ~~~t~~~p$~ 3 am sure that in when there is something highly the past two controversial involved, but at least ~~~~dwea~o: gments and anthey are talking about it.” gles that we two taxes: a Graduate Beneficiary Contribution (GBC) and a Corporate Beneficiary Contribution (CBC). These two segments of the economy are being suggested because they are the most direct beneficiaries of PSE. Graduates of Canadian universities (whether graduated in 1925 or 1994) would be taxed on income above the national non-university graduate income level, minus their student loans. This would range from 0.5% to I .75%, depending on how much revenue the tax (GBC) was designed to raise. The corporate tax (CBC) is a “play or pay” thing. Corporations have the choice of playing: setting up bursaries, hiring co-op students etc., or paying: being taxed. BLAH, BLAH, BLAH... There are many details involved that I am going to leave out, because they don’t really affect the gist of what I am trying to say. Student councillors have, in conjunction with the Federation of Students, tried to educate the student body about this issue. There has been a serious time constraint facing us. However, I have just returned (Tuesday night) from an open forum on this issue. Previous to that, I attended an Arts Student Union general meeting, and my colleague, Xander Leroy, attended a MathSoc meeting. Attendees debated the issue, and good or bad to say about it, 1 was blown away by the intellectual and flavourful insights into the topic. With the bare minimum amount of summary information that councillors were able to relay to these people, they were able to

would not have thought of. Some arguments were not constructive, but rather raw reactions to a document that really takes some digestion to understand, but a reaction is good .. . the students have ;i political pulse. By the time you read this, Students’ council will have decided whether or not Waterloo’s name should appear on the document. This would mean that UW supports all of the aspects of the paper. I, as a Senior Officer, am a non-voting member of Students’ Council. No matter how the vote goes, I am so glad that something 1 always knew was true, was proven: UW students do care. Many students at the forums asked why they hadn’t heard about this issue before. The opportunity was there. Student council meetings are open to everyone, the minutes are available to anyone, the agenda is always available to everyone, the meetings are always published in Imprint (with the exception of emergency meetings), and discussion documents and Fed exec members are always at your disposal. CASA is a good thing. It is too bad that the first time people are paying attention to it is when there is something highly controversial involved, but at least they are talking about it. CASA will be taking thisdocument to legislators, MP’s, MPP’s. business leaders, labour groups, and education experts. This is a big deal. Whether UW decides to support the philosophies of CASA or not, I am glad that people are educating themselves and speaking up for their opinions NOW, when it is not too late.

A Never Ending Story by Norm Furtado Imprint staff



he delay in completion of the Bombshelter is just the latest chapter in the Student Lif’e Centre Saga. The story actually begins in 1992 with the referendum concerning new fees which would supplement lwo new structures on campus, the Student Life Centre and the North Campus Physical Recreation Complex. Students on a co-q term in Winter 1995 may have missed all the upheaval caused by a revelation by Imprint in January 1995. Here’s a review of events leading up to the uproar and its resolution. January 1992. A referendum was held on campus concerning two fees for financing the Student Coordinated Plan, The result was a 66% majority in support of implementing the Plan which called for a $10 per term fee to create the Student Endowment Fund. The fee was to be collected for seven academic terms or until both the Student Life Centre and the North Campus Physical Recreation Complex were completed. The second or capital fee, which added $25 per term to students’ tuition statements, was to succeed the Student Endowment Fund when the two new buildings were opened and would continue for 25 years. April 1992. Both of the new fees approved by the Board of Governors.

1992. The first fee, the Student Endowment Fund ($lO/term)collected for the first time. October 1993. Construction of the addition to the Campus Centre begins. January 1994. Construct ion of the North Campus Physical Recreation Complex is complete. April 1994. Agreement signed between then-President of the Federation of Students, Catherine Coleman and the University of Waterloo, which outlined issues such as governance of the new buildings and commencement of fee collection. September 1994. Completion of both buildings exr petted this term, so capital fee ($2X’, term) charged to all full-time undergraduate students. This fee is compulsory, non-refundable and inflation-indexed.


January 1995. Imprint reveals Feds’ blunder - a $25 capital fee collected in violation of terms of Referendum. Although the new Physical Recreation Centre had been open for some time, the construction of the addition to the Student Life Centre was behind schedule. Then-Fed president Stephen Codrington sought legal counsel regarding allegations by Imprint that the Feds violated their own Referendum. February 1995. Student Centre Management Board decides to refund $25 collected in Fall 1994. March 1995. Construction of Student Life Centre is complete, seven months behind schedule. September 1995. Renovation: to the Bombshelter still not complete due to lack of funds.

tial use of the area. Vaughn envisions an area which can act as a waiting room for patrons wishing to enter the main section of’ the Bomber. This, in theory, should eliminate or at least reduce the lineups at the door. When money does become available, the new Bombshelter expansion will continue to create an area that Vaughn says will retain many of the features and benefits of the Wild Duck Caf6. During the day, the expansion will serve as a quiet area and public restaurant, fully waited and staffed to serve a variety of patrons, including underagers and their families. In the evening, the rules which apply to the Bombshelter will take effect over the new area, to accommodate the patron overflow. The entire expansion and renovation is sure to create more jobs for students at the Bomber since the new expansion area is expected to have an eventual capacity of approximately 100 people. Sproule confirms that some minor renovations muy be made, but stresses that they are only tentative suggestions. There are plans in place to complete the area and make it into a waited restaurant/ bar, but until the money can support these undertakings, Sproule says the area will be used for special occasions only, this term.

Waterloo Public Interest Research Group General Room


to Reform


he laws and policies that guide land use planning and development in Ontario are about to undergo yet another govemnlcnt review. The Planning Act, the major statute dealing with urban and rural planning, will be scrutinizedover the next few months by officials from the Ministry of Municipal Affairs, under direction from the Harris government. In fact, the process has already begun, although the public has not yet been consulted. In a meeting last week, Al Leach, the Minister of Muncipal Affairs, indicated a small committee will be set up to look at the Act and recommend changes. The recommendations will then brought before Cabinet to be tabled before the Legislature next year. This is not the first time the Act has been reviewed. The Planning Act was the subject of an extensive 4 year review that ended last year with the proclamation of Bill 163 and a new set of policy statements by the NDP government of the day. That review, guided by the Sewell Commission on Planning and Development Reform, and later by bureaucrats from the MMA, saw thousands of stakeholders providing comments on how to improve the state of planning in Ontario.

f you are a co-op student at the University of Waterloo, SAC has many wonderful issues planned this semester. SAC stands for “Students Advising Co-op” and was established to identify issues affecting co-op students, and to work together with the co-op department to try and resolve these issues. As a result of the survey compiled last year, there were five major areas of concern for students. SAC under the supervision of Gerald Kirk began exploring these issues in the summer term and we will continue to explore these issues further this semester, The five major areas of concern are as follows: Communication between the co-op department and students;

SAC meetings are held biweekly on Mondays at 4: 3I)p. m, in Room 229 of the Student Life Centre. At each meeting there is a representative from the Co-op department. This term our staff advisor is Olaf Naesse. He acts as the liason between SAC and the co-op department. Also, he gives an update of the recent changes in the co-op system which we then relay to the student body. This term SAC will be run through committees and subcommittees. For instance, each committee will consist of a group of individuals which will focus on

Students travelling from the University of Waterloo or Wilfrid University University to Toronto, Ottawa or Peterborough can take advantage oftie new service, which is available on Thursdays, Fridays, Sundays and Mondays.

Reform tions and rural municipalities, told a conference of municipal officials last month that the new system isn’t efficient enough and needs to strike a balance between economic and environmental interests. Critics point out that the new system is so new that the strengths and weaknesses have yet to show themselves, and that the extensive review and consultation that took place over the past 4 years should be respected, not perverted by special interests at the 1 lth hour. Environmentalists, acknowledging the compromises they made during the last process, say that though the legislation isn’ perfect, it is better than nothing (the previous Act) and would like to see the reforms remain intact. What occurs during the next few months is unknown, except that the development and rural interests have the governments ear on this issue. What is at stake is almost every reform to the system generated during the last few years. That is, a planned future versus an accidental future.

Though all of the major stakeholders made concessions during the drafting of the reforms, most stakeholders agree that the consultation process was fair and effective. What the Commission was looking for was ways to streamline the approvals process, incorporate environmental concerns about farmland, wetlands and forests into the Act (which were never really recognized in the previous legislation) and reign in urban sprawl. Now, as then, there is a lack of faith in the integrity of the planning profession: few people see any evidence of planning for a desireable future. What worries those in the field is that development is occuring in a piecemeal, unplanned fashion, with little regard for the future physical and socio- economic environment. That is not only the sentiment here in the Region of Waterloo, but across the Province where communities face development pressure. While the new goverment stated they would repeal the whole package ofreforms during the election, it now appears they will just tinker with key sections of the legislation Al Leach, under pressure from larger development corpora-

to determine an answer at this time. It is expected that this question will be key to finding an appreach to dealing with the cuts. Equally important is the question of whether Waterloo will continue with its tradition of implementing an equal cut lo everv faculty of the Univkrsity, & whether it will implement vertical cuts for the first time in recent history. Kalbfleisch reiterated his belief that those closest to the action are best’ able to determine where financial resources are most essential, but added that should higher cuts arrive than expected, Waterloo may be forced to take a different approach at spreading the pain. Most significantly for stu-

in University spending without making a reduction in salaries and benefits.” Waterloo is going to have to reduce its faculty and staff expenses. Another effort to reduce expenses in this area aside from the hiring freeze will be the implementation of an early retirement program, which will be open to all faculty and staff over the age of fifty-five who have worked for the University for at least ten years. Kalbfleisch was unable to answer how the University will determine whether “more people will earn less, or less people will earn more,” as the means to cost-reduction. Instead, he turned the question over to the department heads present, who were equally unable


dents, however, is the question of deregulated tuition endorsed by President Downey. In defining the issue, Downey stated that while he doesn’t expect the government to completely deregulate tuition, a more flexible

ity of universities offer a relatively inferior product. Student President Jane Pak expressed this fear by saying that, “You start questioning whether students will be admitted to university based on academic merit or on financial ability..” Pak will be getting together with members of a subcommittee struck to deal with the cuts, to get a better sense of where the university is. She thinks that students need to work out a tui ti on arrangement with the government, similar to one in Alberta, which would give students greater input on the assessment of tuition rates.

CriGcs believe, however, that this could start a vicious cycle, ending with an Americanized university system: where the best universities are unaffordable to the majority of students, while the major-

policy would soften the impact of the cuts which are expected. What this would amount to, in a nutshell, would be greater latitude for universities to set their own tuition rates without government penalties or interference. In the short term, this could

Lecture on Israeli - Arab relations forthcoming by Patti Imprint

tensive time teaching and studying in the United States, this is his first extended stay in Canada. His purpose at University of Waterloo is two-fold. First, he is here as the first Israeli visiting professor at the university, and second to promote the new Jewish Studies program currently being organized. Money to fund this program is still being raised, and the program cannot currently afford the costs of hiring a visiting professor for the full year. As a result, Dr. Sela is here only until mid-October and, de-

professor Dr. Sela from Hebrew University in Jerusa\ lem,, will be discussing “State and Society in the Middle East” today, at 230 in HI3 178. Professor Sela arrived in Waterloo on September 10, and has been teaching a course offered through the history department, dealing with Israeli-Arab relationships in historical perspective. Whie Dr. Sela has spent ex-

spite his short visit, it is hoped that his presence here will give the program, as he describes it, “a push in the right direction.” The course that he is teaching is offered primarily to Political Science and History students, and was not solidified in time to be included in the 1995 course calendar. In Jerusalem, Dr. Sela works in the International Relations Department. His research deals primarily with regional politics of the Middle East, and he has written extensively on Israeli-Arab conflict/

relations during the past 60 years. He has a book coming out in the near future dealing with the history of the Israeli-Arab conflict from an Arab point of view. Dr. Sela’s stay is being supported by the Canada-Israel Foundation for Academic Exchanges. Every year, this foundation sponsors an exchange program for Israeli academics to come to Canada to teach at various universities. The program is financed both by the universitites and Jewish contributions.

During his talk this afternoon, Dr. Sela will be dealing with state formation in the context of supranational identities, problems of new states, and lessons of violent conflicts.

Next week’s Imprint will feature an interview with Dr. Ma, dealing with the recent signing over of Isrueli land to Palestinian rule und the issue qfeconomy and security in this region.

f it wasn’t for this conference I wouldn’t know what the hell was going on,” mused Robin Stewart, president of the newlyformed Waterloo Debating Union, fnformation and gossip filled the past weekend’s Information for Campus Executives (ICE) conference. Over wine and cheese, campus leaders were offered encouraging words from Associate Provosts Peter Hopkins, Bob Elliot, and Dorothy Battae, who run the student affairs, services, and the money on that warm and friendly third floor of Needles Hall. Dr. Downey spoke of the importance of student leadership and community while advising them to learn the power of the “artful nudge.” The wine was flowing by this point and many sat wondering

if their fifteen dollar investment was worth it. The administrative jargon did not detract from any practical knowledge the leaders wanted at the first ICE conference in several years, Within fifteen minutes of former Federation of Students President and Village Don Steven Codrington’s speech, delegates knew why they were assembled. Math, Science and Engineering execs, club presidents and Fed execs agreed with Codrington’s assessment that high school did “suck” and that this was the place of opportunity. Codrington provided witty and insightful advice, telling leaders to stand behind their decisions and face the music even after our term was done. Among the first lessons expected: how to handle a migraine headache and do homework in between classes. Student leaders take on the extra work for reasons other than recognition according to Codrington - who even as Fed President was asked for ID every week at the Bomber. “Develop as a person... to be honest and to strike a balancebetweenstrengthandadaptability as a leader” were Codrington’s final words of wisdom and perhaps the best advice offered on the weekend. After speeches it was time to

mingle and finish off those last bottles of wine. Fed President Jane Pak and the VP External of Engineering Society Nicole Abcarius, chatted about the controversial CASA document and solutions to funding cuts. Rosemary Crick (Student Issues) and Karen Masden (Peer Health) discussed the upcoming year. Several Society social directors and presidents realized what an information sharing weekend this was going to be. All in all it was a lot of wine, a little cheese and a great opportunity to meet student leaders. The following day’s session began bright and early at 930. Mike Suska, Vice President of Finance, relayed lots of valuable information about Fed businesses which Pat PiIlion, VP of the Italian Club, found “incredibly useful and what every student should know,” Other sessions covered promotions, bookings, services, and volunteers. The conference was designed to answer some of the most-asked questions whicih most people left feeling ready and able to promote, book, and host a successful event. More importantly the Feds’ past successes and failures wcie discussed with advice offered from Suska, Crick and Senior Officer Internal Affairs, Tricia Mumby.

As of this Sunday, October lst, cyclists who ride their bicycles without wearing helmets will be breaking the law. That’s the date when the Ontario government’s new Highway Act legislation commences. Yet another instance of government invading our lives and protecting us from ourselves, the law as far as I see it will probably be doing a lot more harm than good. I’m sure there’s a lot of concerned and well-meaning law-makers and lobby groups backing this legislation, all of them armed with truckloads of statistical data proving their initiative. They believe, lest it require mentioning, that incidences of cyclists head-injuries, and perhaps death, would subside under the benefit of cycle helmets and, alas, Ontario’s tidy new law, These facts are nice and all, but, as with Canada’s narcotic laws, one can easily punch holes through many of these scenarios and offer equally as valid counter-arguments. What if 1 was to conclusively demonstrate scientific tests indicating that motorists who wore football helmets while driving suffered far lesser injuries during collisions? This is purely hypothetical, but I believe that if f was so inclined, I could actually prove this hypothesis to be valid. Do you think for a second that presented with this hypothesis the Ontario government would ever initiate or mandate that motorists be required by force of law to wear football helmets while driving? Laughable as it sounds, it’s precisely what they’ve done to cyclists. As with narcotic laws, politicians are forever swayed by lobbies. The more money backing the lobby, the more swayed the politicos. Tobacco and alcohol lobbies, as we know, are substantial, whereas the cannabis lobby is virtually negligible by comparison. But which narcotics are more dangerous and addictive? And which narcotics remain legal? Rhetorical questions that stray somewhat from the argument at hand, but I demur. The same rationale is at play in the cyclist legislation. Motorists present a massive voice; cyclist lobbies, on the other hand, are perceived by many to be the domain of kids or environmentalist radicals. Ontario’s new helmet legislation follows closely the law that’s been on the books for a few years in Australia. The statistical data indicates that, yes, head injuries resulting from cycle accidents are down in Australia. One can quickly reason that the helmet law might’ve had a lot to do with this, so the Australian case has been thrown out for us in Ontario, like bones to a dog, to get us to see the light. But what the Ontario legislators fail to mention in their campaign of propaganda is that coinciding with the Australian helmet law is a significant decline in the uumber of people using bicycles as transportation in that country. Does anybody expect anything differently will occur in Ontario? I sure as hell don’t. Is this what we really want? Shouldn’t we instead be striving to get people out of their cars and onto bicycles? This law will do otherwise. Say goodbye... yet another piece of your freedom and personal responsibility ore again revoked.

hey’ve got no business being there.” That’s my father talking about IpperwashSomehow it was alot easier when it was some golf course in Quebec they were fighting over and not one of my favourite beaches. I’m not going to pretend that I fully understand what happened here. My qualifications for discussing native rights are limited to my Girl Guide Native Lore badge and the two-lecture courtesy they’ve afforded native history in a couple of my Canadian history and Government courses. The Girl Guide experiences have stuck with me more vividly than the facts I regurgitated in the PAC. At one particular camp, visitors from a local reserve came and demonstrated their native dances to us. I remember them saying that in a traditional type of dancing, one foot must remain on the ground at all times. The girl demonstrating the dancing said that she preferred freestyle dancing, where that rule didn’t apply. I liked the dancing but I didn’ t quite get it. There didn’t seem to be a pattern to the movements or the songs. Or at least there wasn’t one that was obvious to me. Like many of us, I really haven’t had a lot of contact with Canada’s native people - not deliberately, but because the opportunity just didn’t seem to present itself. However, there was a native girl, “Susan” (not her real name), in my grade seven enrichment class. I remember her as being quiet and reserved, but when she chose to speak she usually had something insightful to offer. She had a look in her eyes, a subdued brightness that never seemed to shine around the rest of us. Once we had a “hat day” at school. Everyone had to bring a hat from home, work with a partner, and make up a story about


each other’s hat. I remember that 1 brought my Girl Guide camp hat, adorned as they always were with crafts and pins and badges. I can’t remember if she brought a hat at all. When the time came, she examined my hat carefully, and stopped at some little hatsized crafts from the Native Lore camp where I had tried dancing. Suddenly I felt uncomfortable. It must seem very silly to her, I thought. I didn’t know what she would think of the little leather canoe and teepee I had glued together and coloured in with marker. I knew these things meant something different to her; I felt like I had trivialized her in some way. She paused awkwardly at one patch with the name of the patrol group to which I was assigned at the camp. “I’m an Oneida,” she said, looking straight at me. I was twelve years old: awkward, curious and shy. It seemed so obvious, what she told me, and yet I didn’t know what to do with her comment. Was it an invitation to ask about her culture, her people, her life when she wasn’t at school? Was it her way of expressing her identity in a class full of assertive English kids? “Uh, oh.. .really ?” was my empathetic and sensitive response. I didn’t understand, and I didn’t know what else to say. I can still remember the look in her eyes. I had a very disturbing experience watching the CBC the other night. I saw Susan’s eyes. Some native teenagers who have been a part of the occupation on the Six Nations Reserve near Brantford were sitting around a campfire, talking about their rights, their hopes, and their fears. They spoke of living off the land the way their ancestors did, living simple lives and sharing the resources of their birthright with their native community. I had

visions of peaceful Girl Guide campfires, quiet forests and sleeping under the stars. As a young Canadian farmer’s daughter, I understood. But then I looked at them, these teenage rebels, and I realized something was wrong. The fire was burning brightly, but they were sitting down, and only two of them were talking. Suddenly, I knew what was bothering me- theirhats. NBAIogos, NCAA logos. I know that denim is more practical than furs and skins but I looked at those logos and thought about commercialism and marketing. I listened to them talking about living off the land and wondered how you could play basketball on the grass. I heard them talking about not needing to go to school to learn the ways of mainstream society and I wondered who was going to buy their next jean jacket should their cigarettes accidently bum a hole. I thought about cable television and how the only reason I was watching them was because their radical actions had not only invited the invasion of modem media technology, but also exploited it for a political cause. I just didn’t understand, I thought again about Susan, and I thought about the native land claims that are being negotiated in an area where I remember having picnics and building sandcastles. In my imagination I saw her sitting around the fire, saying only “I’m an Oneida.” Somehow that just wasn’t good enough for me anymore. Today, ten years after meeting her, I know what I need to ask. I know that it will take more than lectures and my hat-sized leather teepee crafts before I have any idea what it’s like to be a young native Canadian. But I also know that she nlzeds to tell me more Continued

Natives not getting too much #l TO the Editor, Re: “Are Native Canadians getting away with too much?” by Pat Merli han. Pat Merlihan seems to think that Native Canadians are stunting our university education and ability to think freely. He also seems to fear being called a racist, and perhaps he is wise to fear that, because that is precisely what I would call him. He also seems to have a guilty conscience and assumes that many other Canadians do as well. Well, I’d like to inform him that I harbour no feelings of “guilt” towards Native Canadians. Rather, I feel angry about racism. I am angry that I have inherited a culture built on genocide and theft. I am angry that the “prosperity” of my country is based on deception, intimidation, and assimilation. I am angry that a white boy can feel justified in this society writing an article about how his guilt, and how ‘*selfish” Native Canadians, have hampered his life and ability to think freely. The article resounds of backlash and his message of “Native Canadians are getting too much” is underscored with racist ignorance. I would not say that Native Canadians are getting away with too much, or that they are getting too much. Considering that 500 years ago, the Indigenous inhabitants of this land “owned” virtually 100% of North and South America, I’d say that what they have now is merely a pittance. Racism masquerades in many ways, and one of its “finest” is to prop up those who are victims of racism as the ones who are responsible for social problems. Merlihan seems to think that it is Native Canadians and their “excessive” de-

mands which pose a problem. Maybe he should turn his attention in the direction of the Canadian government.. . it is there that he would find those largely (but, of course, not entirely) responsible for the conflicts occuring in regards to Native claims. There is no need to scapegoat Native Canadians. Finally, I’d like to quote something I read in this past week (though I can’t remember the name of the author), and I think it’s appropriate here.It’sacommonmythinCanada that Natives get “too much” or get things for free. Well, “If Indians get everything for free, how come they have nothing?’ -Joanne Bender 4th Yr. Poli Sci

Natives not gett ing too mu ch










Irrelevant, not Redundant

TO the Editor, TO the Editor, I am writing in response to Pat Met-Ii han’s article, “Are Native Canadians getting away with too much?” (Imprint, Sept 22). He wrote that native Canadians should be criticized for mounting what he terms as “terrorist action.” We must ask ourselves what we would do if we were in a similar situation. What would we do if conquerors claimed our land as their own? How would we feel if our forests were flattened, our fish poisoned and our animals hunted to extinction? How incensed with rage and sadness would we be if our children were forced into church and state run schools where they were subject to physical, sexual and emotional abuse? Various levels of government have, in recent history, made several half-hearted and ultimately fruitless attempts at negotiation. Natives have come to realize that

Standoff n Monday, September the 4th 1995, the Stoney Point Nation entered the Provincial Park at Ipperwash, also known as The Pinery. Their reasons for this action are that the park is an ancient Stoney Point burial ground. Adjunct to this park is the Canadian Military Training Center at Ipperwash which for the past two years has also been occupied by the Stoney Point First Nation. The Canadian Forces grudgingly left Stoney Point land on July 30th, 1995. This land will be returned to the Kettle Creek-Stoney Point Band. But this land is Stoney Point land, an autonomous band that lost their right to representation in 1942. “The land on which the camp stands was seized from members of

they have no clout at the bargaining table and must accept whatever crumbs they are offered. They continue to live in horrendous conditions, plagued by alcoholism and suicides. The only option for many native Canadians is violent action. The barricades at Oka and the occupations at Ipperwash and Gustafson Lake bring attention to the cause of our native people. I would further suggest that so far we have been lucky that the size of the native actions have been relatively small compared to actions taken by indigenous people in South America and Africa. What we are witnessing is the actions of desperate people trying to regain not just their land and way of life - but their dignity.


the Band (Stoney Point First Nation) by the federal Government in 1942 for use as a military camp with the promise that it would be returned after the war - a promise that was never kept.” (The Globe and Mail, Sept. 11 th, 1995). Often what has occurred in the media coverage surrounding the events at Ipperwash is that Stoney Point and Kettle Point are portrayed as the same people, when in actuality they have very different rights and representation. Yet it is assumed that they share the same voice. The Canadian government does not acknowledge the autonomous existence of the Stoney Point First Nation. The reasoning behind this is that in the 1930s under the Colonial control of Indian Agent much of the Stoney Point land was leased to the federal government.

I have a problem with the Forum piece by “Joe C.” in last week’s Imprint entitled “An Experiment in Redundancy: The Federal New Democratic Party Leadership Race .” The author begins by stating that the leadership race is an “unnecessary event” in Canadian politics, arguing that the NDP platform has *‘no relevance to the politics of Canada today .” This may or may not be true, but the real problem with this essay begins in the title and continues throughout, as the author continually returns to the word redundant. The word means superfluous, beside the point, or unnecessary because of duplication, but the author uses the word as if it means, instead, irrelevant. He argues throughout that with the current turn to the right in Cana-

ButtheyLovESkippytheKangaro0.) dian politics (as evidenced by Mike Harris et al) “people today are not looking for a party that will fight for the rights of the worker,” i.e. the NDP. Later he writes: “I’m not totally writing off the New Democrats, but it would seem that their place in the Canada of 1995 is redundant.” If the NDP were redundant, it would mean that they have no place because the position they aim to fill is already taken by another party. This is not the case, as the

at Stoney As mentioned earlier, all Stoney Point land was eventually seized under the War Measures Act in 1942,Thus, the Stoney Point people were left without land. The Indian merchants dispersed the native population of Stoney Point to Kettle Point and other reserves. Without having people on the land at Stoney Point they lost their right to representation and the ability to negotiate the rights to their land on their own behalf. The requirement for representation is based on one representative for each one hundred people who live on the reserve. Since the Stoney Point people were removed from their land, they have no representation in Canadian politics or seemingly the Canadian media. The people of Stoney Point

The Left is for the most part out of the public consciousness at the moment, and therefore the inner workings of the NDP are for the most part irrelevant, but not, however, redundant.

“You’ve got to choose between happiness and what people used to call high art. We’ve sacrificed the high art.” Did you know that Ba~~watch has ;in estimated one billion viewers worldwide? Pretty sad, although there’s no mystery as to why people watch it. Skin. Mmmm... skiinnn. Still, I was wondering the other day if there isn’t something more. One can only ogle so long at the actors and actresses. Why do people watch this trash? The answer lies at least partly in a pattern that I’ve noticed recently with television. The show is, paradoxically (since people don’t brag about watching it), a giant ego trip for the viewer on some subconscious or even conscious level. Apart from their good looks, most of the characters are so obviously shallow and base that no matter what sort of person you are, you can look down on these characters and think about how great you are in comparison. The same goes for shows like Melrose Plcrce, other dramas and situation comedies. Talk shows produce the same effect. Talk shows bring on guests that are either on the fringes of society or doing something outlandish. Part of the show is spent trying to superficially understand their problem or identify with it. But ultimately, the host finishes with some high-minded McMoralising and often condescending advice for the beleaguered souls on stage. Meanwhile, the viewer is left to absorb all this and, head shaking, say, “That’s just fucked up, man...” The tabloid news shows achieve this by investigating some outrageous story of wrong-doing or sexual misconduct and then scnsationalizing it. Then, if possible, they save the swimsuit or Shottlgirls feature for the end to hook the pathetic slob into watching the entire program (or, uh, so I’m told). The previous fare makes the viewer feel superior, while the final expd creates a fantasy that goes hand-inhand with the ego trip. While simple curiosity is a factor in the large audiences for these programs, this ego trip is something that simply cannot be realized through other media. Radio cannot fixate out-attention in the same way or long enough and is still used

primarily for music. One cannot take on an air of superiority with something like the coverage of the Middle East peace process in the newspapers, because even an idiot realizes upon reading about it that the situation is, to say the least, rather complex. When one is reading, thought has a nasty tendency to creep in and question things, because the brain is already in gear. No ego trip there. But television news, on the other hand, simplifies things just enough so that a snap judgement can be made by the viewer and blame can then be quickly assessed. Unfortunately, even in students’ (the supposedly educated, concerned types) houses, the question is almost always whether or not the household should get a cable connection - the question of whether or not they should get a subscription to a newspaper rarely arises, despite the fact that the latter costs far less. So even though television has an incredible capacity to disseminate information, the general public still remains profoundly ignorant of not only world events, but also of events in the community. Once its ability to kill conversation and social interaction is considered, the isolation that television achieves is staggering. I hate to drag the drug metaphor out of the closet, but it’s true. Television makes you feel better and it isolates you from problems. Ironically, though, television is isolating to a certain degree even if you do not watch it. For one, you cannot participate in those conversations about the events from Friemh, Beverly Hills 90210, and The Simpsons (though special measures should be taken to avoid missing The S~mpsons) if you have not seen them. On a broader level, many references to popular culture are lost on the non-viewer, as everything is so inextricably linked to television. Neither of these are great losses, but they are noticeable. Television is not all bad. It should be watched to a small degree so that one can remain connected to the understanding of this mass’ culture. While 1 have since succumbed to watching some television at school (on the two channels that I get), I did go without it for two school terms, except for renting videos. I highly recommend it. You would be amazed at how little you miss it after ;L while.

dvertising was the raging debate this past week when Canada’s Supreme Court ruled in favour of tobacco companies’ right to advertise. It doesn’t come as any surprise that interest groups have quickly taken a stance against this ruling, but like always this much attention to cigarette smoking has been its best advertising yet. This topic should be regarded as a nonissue as the ruling will hardly give tobacco companies superhuman powers to entice new generations into the filthy habit. I mean really, let’s give ourselves a break for just a minute and decide whether their right to advertise is going to drastically affect our personal and clinical stance on smoking. If you think that superslim models or burly tanned men puffing on Camels are going to change your views on the subject, then you should seriously give your head a shake. It’s not the percentages, the social affects, or the death toll that I really care about with this issue. In fact it extends far beyond the smoking issue, and brings us to the issue of responsible advertising in general. Personally, 1 think that tobacco companies will continue to be responsible promoting their products with the intention of enticing users to their particular brand. In fact, that sentiment has already been expressed by a couple of the major players in the tobacco industry. Why is it constitutional that every other avenue of the marketplace is allowed the creative freedom to display their product in a public forum and yet advertising tobacco is regarded as Canada’s sacred cow? Let’s not be too judgemental about what the tobacco industry is cooking up now that they’ve finally obtained access to the same forum that everybody else now uses. How about looking at some of the big offenders of adver-

tising campaigns that just go too far? Advertising that strives to push the envelope shouldn’t be discouraged, but in the spirit of agitation (or is that shock value?), it sometimes misses its mark and raises questions about an advertiser’s responsibility to the public. Take Calvin Klein for instance probably the worst offender of pushing society’s values too far. His latest back-to-school campaign took a softporn feel featuring underage models posing in a seedy basement. Within a week the campaign was pulled, but Kleinremains untouched by the fiasco, counting his money and gearing up for his next kick at society’s crotch. And why not? His jeans have been flying off of racks at stores, more so because of thz backlash stirred up from special interest groups than the tasteless ads themselves, The tobacco industry can hardly be condemned for pushing the same buttons that others have been doing regularly, because of unconstitutional laws restricting them. But it is important that we recognize that many corporations use these advertising tactics and renege on their responsibilities towards society. The tobacco industry could be no different, but at least let them prove themselves to be irresponsible before special interest groups babble their preconceived hysteria and dictate their morals onto society. Shifting the responsibility for advertising suitable for society onto the marketplace is not accepting responsibility yourself. By being responsible to ourselves in consumer and lifestyle choices. and by being extremely cynica of sleazy advertising, the responsibility is ultimately decided by your wallet. So use the power of its silent, but deadly voice. -by

may sound harsh...


he Supreme Court of Canada recently ruled that the ban on cigarette advertising was unconstitutional and struck it down. Naturally, the government has promised to respond. If they want to, they can just make another unjust law, and in several years, when the Supreme Court quashes that one, they can make anotherone,udinfinirum. Where will this tit-for-tat fighting end? Probably nowhere, and I’ll tell you why. It’s because of Canada’s socialized medical system, where anyone sick can get any treatment required, for as long as they need it, for FREE. So what’s the solution? Change the medical system. I’m not saying totally scrap free medical coverage. Though that may be the most just solution, it is probably not in the best interests of the nation. What could be done however, is make the system a little more selective. Smokers can be the first group to get targeted. Smokers, no more freebies! At least, not for smoking-related health problems. If you break your leg, free health care. If you get lung cancer, tough shit. Pay for it yourself. It’s your fault. I shouldn’t have to pay for your stupidity. Gravitationalty challenged, you’re up next. I once read in “The Wellness Letter,” a health publication put out by the University of California at Berkeley, that less than 2% of obese Americans are so afflicted due to

glandular problems, which means that 98% are just plain old fat bastards. No doubt the figures in Canada are comparable. I see no reason why Canadians would be more prone to glandular problems. So, exercise! Get off your asses! Turn off your TV’s for once, put away the potato chips and PC Cola, and burn some calories. It’s not so hard, it increases metabolism and energy levels, and it’ll keep you alive a little longer. When you have a heart attack as you strain away on the bog, I don’t want to have to pay for your bypass surgery. Drunk drivers, you’re screwed too. If you go cruising when you’re tanked and manage: to wrap your dumb ass around a telephone pole, I shouldn’t have to pay your hospital bills, or any disability payments, etc. This may sound harsh, but it’s not. 1 have no qualms paying into a common fund that will pay medical bills incurred through “acts of God.” We all get sick, no matter how well we take care of ourselves, but people who consciously take direct action that is known to be harmful, too bad. Screw you. This will not lead to widespread suffering - private health insurance can be obtained for these high-risk cases - but the point is, OHIP premiums will be lower for everyone, and only those who ask for trouble will have to pay when it finally comes around.

..,98!% are just plain old fat bastards.

hen 1 came to pick him up, “Danny” was pouting. Actually, 1 thought he was sleeping as usual, but 1 couldn’t wake him up. After shouting his name a few times, his staff came to explain away my problems. “Danny is pouting now. He was forced to do sumething that he didn’t want to do, and he may be hard to work with today,” his staff told me. My job was to spend a half an hour with Danny working on his postural positioning, and this could be accomplished only if Danny was co-operative. I spent my summer co-op term working at Southwestern Regional Centre (S.R.C.), an institution for adults with developmental handicaps, located in Chatham, Ontario. My official job title was student kinesiologist, and I was responsible for carrying out kinesiology-like programs for a particularcaseload of individuals. The adults that I worked with are hidden away in an institution that provides all essential needs for the residents. The goal of the institution is to maintain the highest quality of life for individuals who have no ability to provide for themselves. The residents of S.R.C. have a variety of mental and physical imperfections that prevent them from living what you and I consider to be a normal life. Cerebral palsy, epilepsy and Down’s Syndrome are so

what to expect of the individuals that I was to work with. I just didn’t have any idea of what to expect of When I returned from them. Chatham, and tried to explain what I had done this summer, I realized that no one else did either. The typical response to my summer job was, “Oh wow, I could never do that.” Let me assure you that 1 am in no way special because 1 did. :* I worked with residents who wanted to eat all foreign and inedible objects (a disorder called PICA), and with residents with severe spinal curvature, and I worked with residents who had no control over their drooling mechanism. When I returned from Chatham, this was essentially what I told my friends. I could tell by their reactions that they didn’t have

shock. That same day, when I left the building after work, my rear windshield was smashed. Apparently, a resident got mad and chose to take it out an my car. At that point, I wondered how I was going to make it through the next four months. I didn’t know how I was going to be able to deal with all the different situations that it looked like I was going to be exposed to. The residents of S.R.C.varied in intelligence, slarting at about two months old. Pu&ng an upper limit on their intelligence level is more complicated, because many have intelligence in some areas, and not others. Actually, during my four months at S.R.C., my own personal definition of intelligence underwent extreme alterations. I began with using intelligence as a synonym for the word smart. Then, intelligence meant the number of “life-skills” (using the washroom, feeding independentIy) an individual could carry out inde-

any real understanding of what these adults were like. As a result, I changed my angle of explanation. I began to tell a story of an incident that provided me with an interesting introduction to my summer. On one of my first days, I was accompanying an individual who had a strange habit, of which I was warned. She ran to every bathroom in the facility and tried to use the toilet. 1 was supposed to block the

I don’t remember how I dealt with that situation, Someone must have rescued me, because I’m sure that I was verging on a state of

in self-injurious behaviours when she was upset. She pulled her own hair, she bit her hands until they bled, and she often hit herself. In fact, many of the residents were self-abusive. How, in these situations, can intelligence be accurately defined and understood? Self-abusive behaviour was one of the most difficult aspects of the job for me to understand. Admittedly, coming to an understanding of these behaviourisms made working with the clientele much easier. Many times, the most common reason for self-abusive behaviour is attention. Many adults with developmental handicaps will injure themselves for attention seeking purposes. After all, there are 500 residents, and whiIe there are many more staff, very few of them are responsible directly for the wellbeing of the residents. The bulk of staff lies in the departments of dietary, housekeeping, and laundry. In this way, I can understand the comparison of adults with developmental handicaps to children. Children also seek the attention of those around them, Children, however, also communicate using the same general language, while each of the residents that I worked with had their own unique manner of comIn the same way that a munication. parent can understand everything that their young child says, so too did I learn to understand the residents that I worked with. -1 learned to identify signals that indicated the on-coming of aggressive behaviours.

gressive behaviours. I learned how to tell when I was going to be able to convince a resident that what I wanted them to do was the right thing to do, and when I wasn’t going to get anywhere. And because of this, I knew that when Danny was pretending to be sleeping, all I had to do was offer him a cup of coffee, double cream, double sugar, and he would come and work with me. But it took me a good couple of months to figure this out. Actually, it took me a good couple of months to get over my fascination with these residents. I spent a lot of time trying to hide the fact that I wanted to stare at the residents. Now, I’m almost unable to distinguish them from “normal”. One of the programs that 1 was involved with this summer was the P.A.D.D.L.E. (Providing Adults With Developmental Disabilities With Life Enrichment) program. This was a canoeing program whereresidents were brought to a public beach area and taught how to canoe. I could see, out of the comer of my eye, other people trying not to stare at the residents. As I spoke to them, and they responded, with their peculiar style of speech/communication, I saw people wondering what was “wrong” with these people. When I was paying for the rental canoes, one of the residents came up to us, repeating over and over “big boat, big boat.” He then

reached out his hand and pulled on the nipple of the man from whom I was renting the canoes. I saw that man stare, stupefied, not having any idea what to do. I told him just to tell the resident not to touch him there. The man just walked away. 1 am now acutely aware that too many people really are worried about situations that they have never been exposed to. I wondered how this man perceived this situation. I wondered how he would have dealt with the situation had 1 not been there. I wondered if he told his friends about it. I am no longer able to use the word “retarded” when describing this population. The word really doesn’t mean anything to me. The problem is that calling them adults with developmental handicaps doesn’t either. When 1 came into S.R.C., I was told that all 1really needed to be able to work effectively with this population was common sense. I left the institution knowing that that is all you need to deal with anybody. The only significant difference between “them and us” is that their mode of communication is more often difficult to understand. Let me end this with a philosophical question: Who can truly say that they also have a clear understanding of the communication patterns of all the “uses” out there today?

effort ever, the goal became mostly a disadvantage for the Brock team. For the Warriors, it was a wake up call! Waterloo started playing some mean physical soccer. Last year’s MVP Jason Chase was all business in the sweeper posj tion, con trolling the Warrior defense and punishing the Badger offense. Then Waterloo began to play possession soccer. Brock found themselves chasing after the ball, usually in their half. The Warriors capitalized off a long throw from Dennis Peeman deep in Badger territory. A “flick on” header from rookie striker Ishmaeil Ishmaeil tied the match at l-l. The team continued their dominance in the second half. Veteran striker Thomas Kishibe would establish a lead for the Warriors. A deflected shot went over the helpless Brock goalie, and the ball fell back into the orange mesh. Waterloo had no problem in protecting their lead. Senior stopper Neil Matthew was in superb form, creating a wall on the right side against any Badger attack. Brock was reduced late in the game to ten players when Claus Burmeister was hacked from behind on a breakaway. On the ensuing free kick, co-captain Matt Arkett

by Michelle Lo and Dawn Culverson special to Imprint oath Creelman gave her team one strict instruction: “We have to come out of this weekend with eight points.” This meant that the team had to win all four games. LJW held its first ever OWlAA regular season league action and played host to nine teams from all over Ontario and Quebec. The weekend began on Friday for the Athenas when they played Trent U, and they dominated the game. It didn’t take long for the performance to begin because the Athenas had some pretty passing plays on the go! They peppered the net with countless bullets, utilizing an arsenal of accuracy and technique. Although they failed to reach a double digit score, the team was pretty satisfied with their 7-O abuse. The goal scorers were Rachelle Brohman (Z), Michelle Lo (2), Amy Adair, Dawn Culverson and Carolyn Stark. The next game against McGill was pretty bad. The team was on the field physically (except for goalie Yolanda Lewczuk, who was taken out at the knee cap by her own teammate Dawn Culverson during

league victory, making theirrecord l-l -2. The five points are good enough for fiifth place. Considering Waterloo’s deficiency in the games-played department, their chance at a grab of first place remains a possibility. The Warriors intend to realize this goal over the weekend. They travel to McMaster Saturday and are home to the Mustangs on Sunday, October 1st. Kickoff is set at 190 p.m. Come enjoy some great soccer action!


A perfect weekend for the Athenas, and much abuse inflicted on their hapless opponents from McGill, Trent, and Carleton. warm-up), but their brains were elsewhere. The inaccuracy of the passes depreciated all the possibilities the team might have had. The Athenas appeared to have played with McGill rather than against them. The Athenas were fortunate to come out of this catastrophe with a 1-O win thanks to Waterloo’s awe-

some rookie goalie Tanya Boge (who wasn’t so bogus after all). The goal was scored by Michelle Lo on a short corner play. The team had a day to recuperate from the McGill meltdown and started early Sunday against Carleton University. Although the Athenas’ brains got into the game, a couple of their bodies were taken

out. Centre forward Rachelle Brohman was sadly sidelined by a sore achilles. Dawn Culverson received a heavy beating, ironically at the knee cap, from a speedy ball and a stick in the jaw. However, the team prevailed with a 4-O score. The goal getters in this game were Carolyn Stark (2), Karta Munch and Michelle Lo. So far the team had followed CoachCreelman’s instructions with three wins in their back pocket. The pressure was on! The last game of the weekend was with McGill again, which meant the team had to work hard. The previous mental mishap with McGill had to be overcome by both mind and muscle. McGill played a rough game, but Carolyn Stark was able to give Waterloo a spark with a splendid shot right in the slot! The final score was 1-O. By the end of the weekend the Athenas had achieved their goal. They collected 8 points, which means they are currently sharing first place with five wins and one tie. Thanks to all those who came out to support the team and UW hopes that more will come to cheer on the Athenas as they go for the gold in black! Next action for the Athenas is this weekend in Toronto.


win of the season




IMPRINT, Friday, Septimber 29,1995




hopes alive


the Blues Thorne was P luy D ’ rhe Duy material. With a one-point lead, a second down with nine yards to go, and the ball at Waterloo’s own 35 yard line, head coach Dave “Tuffy” Knight could have stayed with his textbook response: a safe run or short pass, and then punt on third down, entrusting the game to the defence. Instead, he had Wilkinson fake the handoff and launch the ball downfield, hoping that Thorne could beat his man and get under it. It was a wobbler, but by the time the Toronto defender reacted, it was all over. The catch gave Thorne 92 yards on two receptions and vaulted him past Gord Fawcett into first place on Waterloo’s all-time career receiving yards chart, a mark accomplished by Fawcett just last year. Malott’s best candidate for the highlight reel was a 75yard burst up the middle midway through the second quarter.

yan Wilkinson wasn’t expecting to be a hero, not in training camp and certainly not on the way to the University of Toronto’s Varsity Stadium last Saturday morning. The University of Waterloo Warrior backup quarterback was just doing his job when he rallied the reeling Warriors to a crucial 2718 win over the Varsity Blues, the team’s first win of this season. Wilkinson entered the game to start the fourth quarter, in relief of injured starter Kevin Danschi nko. He ran Waterloo’s option offence with ease, scampering 44 yards on 6 carries. Then, with just 58 seconds remaining and the Warriors clinging to a scant one-point lead, he delivered the death blow to the Blues with a “IS-yard bomb to Adrian Thome. Wilkinson’s late heroics overshadowed Mike Malott’s best rushing day of the season - 19 rushes for 2 13 yards, two touchdowns, and a defence that contained the potent Blues passing attack late in the going, despite allowing a big day for Marino Sturino and Francis Etienne. “This win sort of predicted our future,‘* Malott said. “It would still be possible for us to go O-3 and make the playoffs, but it would’ve

Toronto stacked the line of scrimmage, lealving Malott with a beeline to the endzone once he got through the line, “Someone had my leg, but I broke away and it was just a footrace,” Malott said. He was forced out of bounds deep in Toronto territory, but scored from two yards out soon afterward to put UW up 17-8. Waterloo’s offensive execution continued to irprove, especially its rushing, as the team piled up 493 yards against the Blues’ defence.

fter taking it narrowly on the chin last week from the defending OUAA champion Queen’s Golden Gaels, the Waterloo rugby Warriors were out to redeem themselves against the McMaster Marauders at Columbia Field on Saturday afternoon. Both teams entered the game sporting identical 0-l records. But since Waterloo had a better ‘94 and held tough against Queen’s, and Mac had a week prior gotten the stuffing knocked out of them by Western 3 1- 13, the Warriors were


a nice finger-tip

By Nicole Pontefract special to Imprint


ast Monday afternoon Columbia Field saw a congregation of 45 young hopeful rugby players all vying for one of the available positions on the Athena Rugby Football Club. This number was trimmed from the 70 players who initially expressed interest in the program. Coaches Eric Ciezar and Bill Lemon are at the helm of the quad and have their work cut out for them. With the mix of players who have previously played competitive rugby and inexperienced but


expected by many of the faithful to score their first victory. It never materialized, and the Marauders instead scored a welldeserved 20- 1 I win. The Warriors started the game well, playing into the wind and dominating the first twenty minutes and leading at the half 1 l-8. During the first quarter the Warriors were able to exert a lot of force, especially in the loose, pressuring the Marauders into giving away penalties. The Warriors seized immediate advantage, with new kicker Dale Finlay slotting a nice pair of penalties to give the team a promising 6-O lead.

feel the pinch

The second quarter was a different story, however, as Mac began to assert themselves and draw a ton of their own penalties. The obscene penalty count was the story of the first half, with the game’s over-zealous referee taking centre-stage and never allowing the game to move into gear. In the second quarter it appeared that many of Waterloo’s infractions were of the trivial variety, the referee electing to recompense Mac for all the times he’d whistled them in the first quarter. It was not a vintage refereeing performance, if truth be told, it was downright dismal. His continual interference during all of the first half’s passages of play brought the game’s pace to a virtual plod. Worst of all, his officiating was laughably inconsistent; muzzling play for minor infractions, then ignoring or hesitating .o act whenever any number of punch-ups would flare throughout the game. Not exactly inept, but in a word, brutal. Mac seized their opportunities, maintaining possession and momentum, and scored a penalty and an unconverted try to take the game by the throat. Waterloo fought back however, scoring a try in the half’s dying moments. It came from a brilliant solo effort by stand-off Brian Anderson. Booting a grubber kick along the ground from beyond the Mac 25 yard line and towards the goal area, Anderson put on the wheels and blew past the Marauder defense, giving furious chase to the ball and downing it for the score. The unconverted try was the last scoring the Warriors would make for the day. During the second half, the referee thankfully sacrificed his starring role for that of a bit player, but the unsettled Warriors failed to take advantage of the wind and never functioned as a team. Although the Warrior forwards’ scrummaging technique throughout the game was superior to Mac’s - the pack pushed the Marauders all over the field - the Waterloo big men nevertheless failed to beat the Marauders to the break-downs, therefore failing to win most of the loose possession.

eager learners, the coaches hope to field a competitive team. This years’s developmental season will consist of four or five exhibition games where the Athenas will have to prove themselves worthy of gaining varsity status for next season. Ciezar said, “There is a lot of potential on this team, with the potential to do well. It is a solid squad which could prove positive in gaining varsity status.” There is little wonder in the coaches minds why women’s rugby has been picked up at the University of Waterloo. “Women’s rugby is the fastest

growing sport at the OFSSA level, and it was only a matter of time before it would take over UW,” said Ciezar. With two scheduled exhibition games against York and Guelph, the Athenas will be battling two of the more experienced teams of the OWIAA. York and Guelph are two solid clubs which will show the squad where it stands when it takes the field. Optimism is running high around the Athena locker room and everyone is gearing up for an exciting season. Come out and support your Athenas as they start the season!

The Varsity Warriors will get a chance to exact revenge at McMaster later in the schedule, and hopefully wi 11be favoured with the services of several key players who were out of Saturday’s match with injuries. UntiI then, their immediate future looks daunting... the undefeated Western Mustangs this weekend in London. In the other match-up, the Junior Varsity Warriors played much more together than their senior brethren and won handily 13-S. Try scorers for the Warriors were. Gareth Davies and Paul Moser, while Steve Goodacre contributed a penalty.

This was compounded by countless losses of possession by the Warriors through uncharacteristic fumbling, both forced and unforced. Giving the ball away was bad enough, but Mac was also gaining an ascendancy in the line-outs, winning immaculate ball and providing beautiful platforms for the backline. Time and again the Marauders would gain possession, maintain it through second, third and fourth phase, over-commit the Warrior defense, and quickly move the ball out wide. It was text-book strategy and Waterloo was unable to adapt, frustrated by their own failure to secure ball and Mac’sdeft handling at speed. Waterloo defended resolutely, but became understandably demoralized because that’s all the team was doing. When Waterloo did get the ball, they tended to play as

Don’t look for Leafs to improve

“Jaguar” victorious, team 9th at Western By Jason Gregoire special to Imprint


his past weekend found the varsity cross-country contingent heading to London for the 21st annual Western Invitational. Always one of the most competitive and toughest races of the season, it included not only the best Ontario schools but also competition from the U.S. and Quebec. This would be the first true test for the Warriors and Athenas early in their racing season and conditions were almost perfect for running under sunny skies with temperatures in the mid-teens. Only strong winds kept the scene from being ideal. The 5 km women’s race was first, finding the Athenas racing from the start line along with 14 other teams. Team captain Judith Leroy, 2nd in Guelph the previous week, had an awesome race once again. Sitting in 15th place with just over one km to go, she was reminded by a cheering Warrior that a top 10 linish was not out of the question. Spurred on by this possibility, Judith picked up the pace, caught 6 runners, and finished 9th overall in a time of 18155, earning a trip up to the medal podium, which is always a special treat at this race. Medals are awarded after both

races to the Top 10 finishers who, when called, must run/crawl up a small, but steep, hill to receive their prize ! This was Judith’s first trip up the hill after finishing a close 12th two years ago. Kim Langton, our international cyclist turned runner, ran near the front for most of the race, but was slowed by a foot injury in the latter stages and had to settle for a still very respectable 17th place finish. Kim showed that once the legs get used to running, she can run with the best of them! Other finishers for the Athenas were Cheryl Turner, Tereza Macel, and Denise Thody placing 3&h, 78th, and 84th respectively in this very competitive field of over 120 runners. The Athenas finished 10th overall (7th OWLAA) and hope to catch some of their Ontario rivals in the races to come. The 10 km men’s race was next ,with the Warriors attempting to run stride for stride with 13 other teams. Team captain Jason “The Jaguar” Gregoirc continued to show exceptional early season form. After finishing 9th twice, and 5th last year at this meet, the Jaguar had only one thing on his mind in this his last appearance at the lnvi tational. Running side by side with Western’s Rob Tyndall through the

weep as I write this. My sad ness consists of the same tears that many hockey fans not only in Southern Ontario, but in fact, all over the country shed. I think that the Leafs are going to suck this year. This is not news to die-hard Toronto fans, who had to stoically endure the endless ‘8Os, with old Harold Ballard trading away a whole team of superstars. However, here it is &he mid’90s and the Leafs are doing exactly the same thing. Cliff Fletcher, the genius general manager who built the Leafs into a contender, now faces a sinking ship. Fletcher has now, sad to say, lost his magic. Never have I seen a team so close to the Stanley Cup become dismantled so quickly. Every move the Leafs have made in the last two years can be debated as being a bad deal. Every true blue Leaf fan should shake their fist at the skies. I mean,

first 5km, the Jaguar put in a surge at the 6km mark and never looked back (ok maybe a few times to make sure nobody was gaining!), winning for the first time. His time of 32:03 placed him 10th on the All-Time Top 10 List for this race and was a fitting end for his last run/crawl up the hill. Brett Kilty was the next Warrior to cross the line, in 52nd place. Still unhappy with his performance, the Kitty has to realize that patience is a virtue and only a couple more weeks of hard training will put the spring back in those legs! Michael Tripp had an excellent race, placing 58th in a personal best (PB) time of 35:35. Any time that you can PB over 1Okm on this very unforgiving course is a noteworthy improvement. Other Warrior finishers were Jonathon Martin (86th), Paul Godkin (88th), Gord Kenny (94th), Chris Watson (99th), and Jeff Irwin (10&h), helping the team to a 9th place finish (6th OUAA). Without the depth of some of their Ontario rivals, the Warriors must work hard in the coming weeks to catch the teams ahead. Tomorrow, the Warriors and Athenas are in Windsor for their next test of the season. Ironically, this course is supposed to be the hilliest of the year, in a town where there are no hills! Maybe the race goes back and forth over the bridge to Detroit!?!

and tackled him, stripping the ball and allowing UW to recover. “Kevin and Ryan really complement each other,” Malott said. “Ryan is an exceptional athlete and has a good arm, but Kevin has the experience and is a bit more mature. We’re comfortable that we can run our offence with either of them in the game.” Toronto’s Sturino relied on the pass, as usual, and accumulated 303 yards and two scores in the air on 20 of 42 passing.

look at the damage done to the lineup. When IBaumgartner went out last year, all of a sudden, the Leafs needed a tough guy. So let’s welcome Warren Rychel and Tie Domi, two “players” who get lost skating up the ice. Next, the Leafs complain about not having good centres to back up Dougie and Sundin. Then they trade Mike Ridley to hated rival Vancouver for Sergio Momesso! ! ! Didn’t the Leafs learn from John Cullen? This trade could be Courtnall-Kordic all over again. And don’t even let me start on the defence. Bob Rouse and Syl Lefebvre are gone, Kenny Jonsson is Drake Barehowsky, Jr., Jamie MaCoun is too old, and Garth Butcher is just plain awful. The Leafs better hope that Felix, Dougie, and Mats can walk on water, Otherwise, Leaf fans will witness a lot of long nights. The Buds may finish .500, but don’t bet on it. The Return to Glory may be shortlived. Stay tuned.

“Tuffy” Knight, but his nagging hip injury, first incurred during a loss to the Lancers at the University of Windsor two weeks ago, may give tomorrow’s starting nod to Wilkinson. “We’ll decide that probably after [tonightI’s practice,” Knight said. Tomorrow’s game features the much-improved McMaster Marauders, who enjoy sole possession of third place in the OUAA with a 2-l record, not to mention a no. 9 ranking in the CIAU’s top-ten list. Running back Ryan Hudecki is Mac’s primary rushing threat, with 274 yards and five touchdowns so far this year.

Adrian by Kimberly Moser Imprint staff


hen it comes to making a statement, Adrian Theme is the biggest exclamation mark there is. At 5* 11 “and 183 lbs. of sleek muscle, Adrian is one of the most highly respected members of the University of Waterloo Warriors football squad. “Adrian is the most talented guy I know,” notes fellow captain John Shoniker in admiration of his teammate. “He puts his heart into everything he does. If you need a big play, you always go to Adrian because he’ll never let you down.” This weekend, Adrian added more truth to the legend that is quickly beginning to surround him here at Waterloo. His 75 yard touchdown catch sealed the victory for the Warriors late in the game against Toronto. Not only was he able to step up and make the big play, but in doing so. Adrian became Waterloo’s alltime leader in receiving yardage. With his 92 yard performance on an amazing two catches, Adrian surpassed Gord Fawcett on the AllTime list with 1291 yards on only 49 receptions. A true Warrior at heart though, Adrian would rather see his team perform its best than have all the personal records that will come his way this season. “That’s respect!” says Adrian



in response to John’s earlier comment. “Things like that make me feel proud. I know that my friends know that they can count on me. That to me means a lot more. I look at them in the same light. If anything were to go down, I’d be there for any one of them. “When it’s all said and done, the record is just a personal best. As a concerted effort, the Vanier Cup epitomizes everything you’ve been working for all year. “I will be proud when the record comes,” says Adrian who will become Waterloo’s all-time receiver with 12 more catches. “But, it’s not something I put in the fore-front of my mind. Yeah, I think about it now and then, it sounds good. But, what I’m most after is that Vanier Cup. I think it says a lot more about a group of guys because that’s who I play with. No matter how you look at it, there’s 11 guys out there and you. I’m just part of those 12 guys.” Some people would have to disagree with Adrian over that statement. He is not just one of those 12 &UYS* In his fourth year as a Warrior, Adrian brings a new confidence to a young Warriors team. It is his mixture of enthusiasm and encouragement that makes him a natural leader and team captain. “There’s a difference between being conceited and being convinced,” notes Adrian. “Convinced means you know what you’ve got to

do to get it done and that’s what you do. Tf you don’t feel you can do that, well, somebody else ought to play the position.” As long as Adrian is a Warrior, he will be convinced and so will his teammates.

Adrian has one year of eligibility left at Waterloo, but his plans for next season are still up in the air. “It all comes down to finances,” says Adrian, who will receive his degree at the end of this year. “It’s hard to have a job and play foot-

Losing Adrian for next season would be a tremendous loss for Waterloo. Howe:ver, right now the Warriors will concentrate on this season. At 1-2, they are still very much in the hunt for the Vanier Cup and have no need to worry about next season righIt now. And if the Warriors lose Adrian, they won’t have to wait too long before a second generation Thome is able to play. Adrian’s nine year old son Dame11 is quite the football star hiimself as the proud papa will tell you. “He’s a star!” boasted Adrian recounting Darnell’s latest game. “He scored four touchdowns, had three quarterback sacks and two interceptions. He’s all over the place.” “I’m extremely proud of him,” says Adrian, getting serious now. He and Dame11 are separated during the football season, as Dame11 lives in Montreal. “1 see a lot of things that could have been for me that I can see in him. 1 SW a lot of things happening good for him.” On and off the field, good things are happening to both Adrian and Darnell. And with five games remaining in the regular season, things can only get better, Come out Saturday and cheer on Adrian and the rest of the Warriors as they take on the McMaster Marauders at Wniversity Stadium.

Captain John Wynne hopes to make Ice Warriors 66Wvnners” by Ryan Pyette Imprint staff


dollar saw short ships ached since.

e’s the new captain of the Hockey Warriors. The man blessed with the million slapshot. The veteran who the Warriors fall one game of the National Championin his rookie season and has to return to that point ever

He’s John Wynne, and true to his last name, he will lead the Warriors onto the ice this year in search of many victories. The task at hand excites Wynne. The All-Canadian defenceman, at different points in his stay at Waterloo, has won nearly every piece of hardware in the Warrior trophy case, but this year, stresses the concept of team success. “I’ve set goals before,” reminisces Wynne, “but this year, I’m trying to get away from that.” Indeed, John’s role as captain sees him filling the shoes of some impressive Warrior alumni. “I’ve had some great captains during my career here,” says Wynne. “Darren (Snyder) and Schneids (last year’s captain Geoff Schneider) have been good role models for the team.” By all accounts, Wynne seems to fit the mold of the other two.

“We want to stress the team philosophy this season,” observes Wynne. “There will be more team functions and hopefully, the team will gel together early on.” From the looks of this year’s edition of the team, coming together will be an important part of the key to success. “There are only three guys left from my rookie season,” the captain points out. “(Chris) Kraemer, (Brian) Holk, and myself.” In assessing the Warriors’ situation, Wynne believes this year’s team will be the most balanced club in recent Waterloo history. “We have a very balanced attack. In previous years, we’ve always had one line that the other teams could focus on. Our success or failure rate usually hinged on that one line. This year I don’t see one dominant line, I see four very good ones .” Wynne also notes that this year’s Warriors will need to work for 60 minutes every night out. The loss of scoring leader “Swervin”’ Jason Mervyn and the gritty Greg Allen creates the need for all four lines, and even the defencemen, to capitalize on their scoring chances.

Third year winger Marc Vaughan should flourish into a scoring threat this season with an increased role. “No one is going to break scoring records on this team,” laughs Wynne, “but everyone will have a role to play and our success factor will be determined by the amount that each player chips in.” As for the other end of the ice, Wynne himself will lead a solid defensive core that includes second-year Scott Stevens-clone Chad Palmer and third-year magician Mark Cardiff, the Hawk-killer, who

training camp with the St. Louis Blues before reporting to the Warriors. Wynne approves of Brealey’s efforts so far in camp. “He brings a great attitude to the team. Three or four of him would bode well for any team.” Wynne also comments on the opposing schools in the infamous “W”division with Waterloo, Westem, Windsor, and Wilfrid Laurier. “Western is our strongest competition, “ winces the captain. “The ‘Stangs are the class of the league, and from what I’ve heard, they

Another rookie who has turned heads and caught the attention of the captain is former OHLer Peter Brealey, who actually attended

rorize the Warriors any more. Look for Laurier to have a tough year. Windsor is also a team that could present problems for the Warriors. Wynne mentions, “Windsor is always the same:. They’ll beat Westem one night and then get dismantled by a team like Laurentian the next. That’s scary.” From Wynne’s point of view, it looks as if Waterloo will battle Western for top spot, followed by Windsor and Laurier. All in all, the OUAA looks up-for-grabs. That’s something that pleases the captain. He ,would love to go out “with a bang” this year, and he is certainly in a position to do something about it. Wynne defends university hockey vehemently, knowing that it isn’t a dead end for godd hockey players. He has personally had contacts with teams at the elite level in Europe, and although he is preparing himself for the working world, Wynne would love to travel to Europe to play thP game he loves. However, that is next year, and this is this year. Wynne has a Warrior team to lead, and a national championship to pursue. And whether John continues his hockey playing or enters the work world, one thing is for sure. True to his name, Wynne will win.

We’re looking forward to playing them.” As for Laurier, Wynne acknowledges the Golden Hawks are in a rebuilding year. “They’ve lost a lot of players,” observes the captain. “They’ve relied on a strong nucleus that isn’t there anymore.” It also helps that All-World forward John Spoltore won’t ter-

The University of Waterloo Warriors teed offtheir season in style with a five stroke win last Monday at the York Golf Invitational at Chesnut Hill Golf Course. In their first league competition of the season, the Warriors finished with a score of 339, five strokes ahead of the second place University of Ottawa team with 344 and the York and Guelph teams who tied for third spot with 348. Waterloo placed three of its members in the top ten. Rob Bladon placed third with 81, Kelly Slough placed seventh with 84 and Steve Woods placed ninth with 85. Other Waterloo results were Darren Zink with 89 and Jeff White with 93. Trevor Stoski from the Ottawa team and Steve Percy from Trent tied with scores of 80 for the low individual round. In their fast and furious season, the golf team plays three tournaments in the next week to wrap up their league play. Monday they travel to the Guelph Invitational, Tuesday, they’re off to the McMaster Invitational and this coming Saturday they travel to the Western Invitational. Next Monday andTuesday see the OUAA Championships at the Point West Golf and Country Club in Windsor. ATHENA




In their first regatta of the season, the rowing team got things off to a good start this past weekend at the University of Toronto Sprints on Centre Island.

In men’s action., in the heavyweight single race, David Coode placed third overall in an exciting and close race. The men’s light weight team of Ivan D’Costa, Jim Don, Colin MacDougall, Joe Troop and coxwain Janice Wong finished fourth in a terribly close race in which the team was edged out by Trent in the last ten strokes. Other strong finishes were a fifth in the men’s heavyweight singles, a third in the men’s heavyweight doubles and a fourth in lightweight doubles. The women’s team had a third place finish in lightweight singles and a sixth in heavyweight fours. Next week the team heads off to the Head of Trent for more action. WARRIOR




The Warrior tennis team turned things around this past week.end to take a 5-2 win over the Brock team but lost a close 4-3 match to the Ottawa team. Dave Markin won both of his matches in straight sets and Steve Ahlberg also won both his matches. The Athenas tennis team started their season on a sour note, losing twice on the weekend. On Saturday, they lost to Western S- 1, with their only win going to the number three doubles team of Sindi Sabourin and Heather Findlayson. In their other match, they lost 9-0 to the York team. Hopefully, the Athenas will turn things around as they play this coming this weekend at Laurier.

She sounded very much like a young child; her voice squealed and cracked in the same way. No child, however, could sing like Hatfield - her high notes ran through Fed Hall in places speakers usually don’t reach. For”Dumb Fun,” her final song of the set, the Hatfield flower was completely unfurled. She threw water at the audience, hid behind the amps, and for the first time moved across the stage. After a violent finish, during which guitarist Ed Slinker stagedived and drummer Phillips destroyed a guitar, Hatfield was left alone onstage, no longer vulnerable but completely in control. She played a bit longer and walked off. Naturally, there was an encore. First, Hatfieldand keyboard& Lisa came bat k for “Make It Home,” a quiet duet from the M-Y Srz C~~lfc~ti Life soundtrack. The rest of the band rejoined for “Supemlodel” and “What a Life,” The response to her finale was a bit too enthlusiastic for Hatfield; “Hey, take it easy!” she yelled to the moshers. “Punk rock is dead, ok, punk rock is SO dead!” and as an afterthought, “So is rock.” Rock is dead? Sure, Juliana...

uuru: The Style of a Specialist Guru and Jazzmatazz Lee’s Pahce, Turontcl Thursday, September 2 1st by Edward Richards Imprint staff “The key wurd tonighl is FAMILY. Are we fumily here tonight Toronto? Can we be ftimdy y ‘all?”


he illusion of knowledge presents itself every day in the form of people who talk loud and spew garbage. Intelligent individuals, who can converse in a language easy to comprehend, yet spiced with inspiration, are few and far between in this rat race world where existence so often preceeds essence. From the unforgiving anarchic ash of Brooklyn, New York City, a cultural mentor t-ras emerged in the form of a musical innovator and representative of wisdom and strength. Media images have attempted to create an image of an individual whom they cannot possibly do justice to-the man who calls himself “Guru” (Gifted, Unlimited, Rhymes, Universal). Lounging comfortably in the cozy venue of Lee’s Palace, Toronto, absorbing

the harmonious fantasy of music from the concert sound check, I realized I was to be involved in a piece of musical and cultural history - the legacy and mystique of Jazzmatazz. Volume I1 was in full effect and a dense fog of anticipation hung in the smoke filled room like the thick mist of old English bogs. A slight individual, Guru stands taller than most with his down-to-earth mentality and his focus on intet ligent comIn a pre-concert munication. interview (to be published next week) Guru fulfilled the image he is seen to represent in the hip hop and now jazz commuThe nities -a serious artist of rugged street essence who has style and elegance. Off the microphone he is a strong musical soldier who has obviously paid his dues. On the microphone he is as solid as the gold lion around his neck. At Lee’s palace, he shone like precious metal. With the show commencing shortly after 12 am, the Jazzmatazz crew kept the fans dreaming of what was to come. Then, like the act of pulling a rabbit out of a hat, the magic began. After an introduc-




his car is jazzy,

tion from the spoken word poet Blackcat, and a sensual, “zipless” performance by Vanessa Daou, Guru and his entourage appeared. With

the introduction

of his main

man Big Shug, and living legend trumpeter Donald Byrd, it was on. Gracing the stage with the pre&ion of an orchestra maestro, Guru conducted a smooth symphony and dropped a jazz-oriented, hip-hop flavored bomb on the joint. The

herbal aroma of chronic mixed with the tantalizing hallucinogen that emitted from the live saxophone, trumpet, drums, keyboard, bass, and vocals created an exotic blend of culture. With the support of two female vocalists from New York, the track “Watch What You Say” took me elsewhere. Pure escapism. One of the most emotional tracks of the evening, “Lost Souls,” was deep enough to penetrate the spirit of the

hardest ruffneck in the place. An untouchable performance. Those of you familiar with the mystic aura that is present in a dope jazz concert can try to understand the portrait I am trying to paint, Imagine, if you will, a packed forum of hip-hop heads and jazz connoisseurs alike, nodding their heads to the fresh and funky sensation of Guru’s monotone yet vibrant voice, crisp instrumentation and smooth female back-up. Imagine the beautiful scent of burning rum-soaked havana leaves, grandfather hats, and glasses half-filled with Hennesey. Imagine the unity and peace that existed in a concert hall full of true jazz/hop fans while just outside the front doors, the ugly rat race continued. The sounds of Jazzmatazz were, at worst, spectacular, at best, mind-altering. Guru left the crowd fiending for another dose of his genius like a basehead scrambling around for his next rock.

Some say

Guru made a soft move when he ventured from Gangstarr into the Jazz realm. Keep in mind, it is experimental fusion and it demands respect. Jazzma tazz Vdume II. Classic music. Quintessential Guru.



IMPRINT, Friday, September 29, 1995

TH:E ..GRATEfUL stage has been ready for IO minutes now. The crowd stands in quiet anticipation. Everyone is watching the stage for the slightest indication that the show is about to begin. The stadium lights go down, everyone rushes the stage, crushing everyone in the process so that e:ven moving your arms becomes d if& cult. The quiet anticipation now given way to loud ruars, ‘wtlistles, and young females yeI liilg “Eddieee, ” “Eddieee,” THEN .,.. the moment 42,000 people have *men wal -,-ting ror P since ’ rt J uiy 4* 012 cws Pearl -_~~~ Jam - takes the __ starre and starts with a rocking “Animil” that gets the whole audience mashing and moving. For die-hard Pearl Jam fanatics like myself and my friends, this is what we drove 20 huurs non-stop for: to see and hear Pearl Jam live in concert. As I mentioned above, last weekend’s New Orleans concert was are-scheduled concert from July 4 because of Pearl Jam’s ongoing dispute with Ticketmaster and their excessive service charges and monopoly of the: music industry. In any event, 00 otie ewes right now about when the concert, was supposed to take place+ Everyone is just gmteful that after staflding in line outside the stadium for nearly 2 hours, and then sitting on the stadium floor for another 2 hours in a torrential downpour, that we mmaged to get on the f-loor and be as close to the stage as possible ;md that Pearl Jam is onstage ractin’ away. The opening band for Pearl Jam was The Ramones, who are in the midst of their last tour ever. I have never seen them live before but they are hilarious to watch! Their songs Iast on average two minutes, they don’t break between songs, and after you’ve heard a couple of them, you don’t know when one song ends and one begins! Their 45 minute set to me seemed like one 45 minute song. However, they did have a couple of highlights. Hearing The Ramones sing “Spider Man” (you know the theme song from the cartoon everyone grew up watching!) to a hard punk rhythm was just too funny! The people who weren’t moshing were body surfing. The Ramones r’he




as the cr& ._


finish4 their set with “Pet Cemeta-y” and Joey &mane &plying that the cemetery WB below the field or sometAing dumb like that. What was really cool was seeing Eddie’and Mike on the sidb of the stage dancing, with Mike t&ing pictures as well, and Beth (Eddie’s wife) sitting off to the side. After Pearl Jam started with “Animal,” they heated things up even more with “Go,” “Last Exit,“’ “Tremor Christ,‘” and “Even Flow.” The only hitch occurred when, the band started “Tremor Christ” and about half way through tie song Eddie Vedder told the band to stup because someone went down in the pit, “We’ ve got one down and we’re not continuing tit1 you guys get her out, yeah, right there, her, thanks,” then continues the song right from where they stopped! Aftir ““Even Flow” they went into an incredible version of “Elderly Woman Behind The Counter in a Small Town” which is one of my favourite songs. He didn’t have a comment before “Not For You” as he did in Milwaukee on July 8 (another show we drove to see). In Milwtiukee, he had said that there was a lot of press about how Pearl Jam was alienating their fans by refusing to do interviews and make videos and that none of what the press was saying was true. “Not For Yuu”” was directed towards the MTV/MuchMusic types and people who bootleg their concerts and then try to profit from it by stilling copies for $30. It was this last paint that led Pearl Jam to announce in Phoenix last week that

is turned


his soul.

it was perfectly acceptable to Pearl Jam to allow their friends to bring audio recorders and cameras to all their shows from now on. I’m sure tiis idea pleased the suits at Sony/ Epic - so I did it. In any event, they were having agreat time playing, “Best fourth of July we’ve ever had,” and their fight against Tick&master by now is well-publicized (although 1 think REM needs a reminder with their $55 tickets). Pearl Jam then wtmt on to play “Deep,” “Jeremy,” “Dissident,” and “Rats,” a song they rarely play live anymore, before stopping for “Daughter,” when


Eddie made the following comments: “Yeah, I don’t wanna grow up either...1 wouldn’t mind growing up if it was the kids m&&g the rules...something about growing up...when you’re little, everyon&s little andyou’reall thesame...when you grow up and things start changing...some people are taller, some people are more handsome, some people are richer.. .and then all those that don’t have what someone else’s got, they try to fuck those other people by doing something like controlling you, abusing you mentally, employing ‘em and treating them like shit. Grown-ups are weird. So it’s up to you to remember all the ideas you have, as an idealistic ki&..turn them down, hang on to them, and live life.” -which is pure Eddie Vedder. As “Daughter” was starting to wind down, Eddie went into “I Believe in Miracles” by The Ramones and then into “Mom and Dad” by the Talking Heads. That was really cool since they have been known to usually go into Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall” or Don McLean’s “American Pie” or The Who’s “Steppin’ Stone” (as they did in Milwaukee). “Alive” After and “Betterman,” which of course had the whole crowd singing along, they went into at least a 15 minute version of “Rearview Mirror” which just took the wind out of both the band and the audience! They slowed things down by going into “Immortality” and then an impromptu jam, with Stone singing, when Eddie broke a guitar string!

Once that. was taken care of, they launched i&o an intense rendition &B~oud’* which saw Mike smash his intc, biis amp, destroying both the ,amp and tha’gtitar in the puss, whih Eddie was smashing the micwphvne stand into the stage BQOF tr@g to create a big hole !

The, Ia& .SQXQ they pItiyed was the only song of the second encore and was “Yellow Ledbetter” whicihis far, far, hr better heard live thanon CD! With an incredible solo effort by Mike at the end of this song, they walked off the stage. One final note that I’d like to mention is that if you are ever fortunate enough to make a roadtrip to the US to see Pearl Jam, never tell the border guys you are going to see Pearl Jam - you’ll get hassalled like you wouldn” t believe. We said that on our way to Milwaukee and payed the price. This time we simply said that we were senior students at the University of Waterloo andweregoingtoMichigan tocheck out some grad schools. Surprisingly, we had no problems crossing this time.

A trio of good shows - Luna, Blur, and The Charlatans - winds its way from Saturday into Monday (though word is there’s no tickets left for Tim Burgess’ band).

Kilier Instinct Super Nintendo


by Jeff Peeters special to Imprint A

s a fan of the Mortal Kombat series, I have heard people L ion the Internet comparing it to Killer Instinct. People had a mix of things to say, so when it finally came out for Super Nintendo (sorry, it is not available for Sega) and the resulting hype occurred, I thought I would take a chance and try it out. The first thing that always do when I get a game is read the manual as I want a fighting chance when I begin playing. At this time school had not yet begun, but as I read the manual I swore that I was reading some sort of math textbook. There were three sections on Combo Theories : Elementary, Intermediate, and Advanced. This was more arcane than Calculus, how could anybody learn this stuff? I knew the reputation that this game had for having a combo sysd tern where a five-button sequence could rattle off a 22-hit Ultra Combo, but this was ridiculous, A combo works like this. A series of buttons pressed correctly with the right timing will make your player perform multiple hits on your opponent, who is basically defenceless to stop you. This is present in all fighting games but in Killer Instinct, it is VERY easy to pull off combos. With other games you must execute ALL the moves but with KI, you just need to do the right opener, a proper linker, a coupie of other moves and you get a lot more damage than just the moves that you executed. Baffled at all of this, I turned A


notion that Thursday is the night in which a cover is paid, a mass number of beers drank, and alternative rock moshed to, but this is not it so we’ll leave thanks (and so they did). I myself tried the sitting and swaying thing for acouple of songs, but the groove took over and before I knew it there I was gyrating, and busting out my pelvis with the best of them to the sweet sounds of Hayden Neale, the lead singer’s voice, a bittersweet and energized crooning style similar in depth to












musically and physically, while Brent Setteringtonon keyspounded out something funky and the styles of saxophonist Adam Leo fondled the audience, especially during “Nubian Blue”, a tempestuous melody that roarded when Leo did. Guitarist Justin Abedin, the anchor of the band it seems, swayed occasionally but for the most part remained grounded in one area. Together they had enough stage presence to keep all eyes glued to their onstage shenaningans, including the recruitment of an unsuspecting member of the dancing flock, who turned out to be our own GSA president Derrick Jewlal. After a few practice la-la-la’s Derrick demonstrated his bravado by bellowing out, “I COT SOUUULL! ! !” in such a, urn, soullful way James Brown would be proud. Musically, Jack Soul can be compared to the likes of The Brand New Heavies pre N’ea Davenport or Bass is Bass (another jazz-hip hop cross over Toronto band) with a stronger pulse, and whom Jack Soul thanks on their cd sleeve. Jack Soul will be appearing at the Volcano for their CD release party in late October, early November, so if you’re a friendly gyrator, or a potentially enthused sit and swayer, or just loolcing for a refreshingly sensual cha.nge of pace keep your eye on this band.

Qverall, this is a really top-notch game and a very good translation of the arcade original. The object of the game is simple. Kick the living shit out of your opponent using kicks, punches, special moves and combos. The match is one continuous round (not bestof-three like most fighting games)

You can also break your opponent’s combo midway through and counter-attack. Sound easy? Ha! As I played I found myself doing Super Combos, Master Combos and even a few Ultra Combos. The sad part was that all I did was punch some buttons without having any real knowledge of what I was doing. This is the game’s majlor shortfall. While on one hand it seems that one needs to be a Graduate Engineering student to figure out all the Combo Theories, one can also be a seven-yearold (or 2 II-year-old) beginner, punch some buttons randomly, and pull off a combo. This has always been a major complaint of the game. If you can look past this, the blood and guts (which I enjoyed), and that annoying guy announcing combos, then you will enjoy this game. This game falls just short of excellent. While the technical parts of the game make it a must-play, the combo system is a detractor. Games can become nothing but combo battles, where the player rattling off more combos will win the match *and turtling (excessive blocking and ducking) is a winning strategy. However, if you like the whole combo concept, then you will love this game. It all depends on how much cheese you like in your video games, and this game has a hint of ripe cheddar.

Clockers by Spike Lee

by Jennifer Epps special to Imprint pike Lee wears his social conscience on his sleeve - al most like an arm-band and he makes sure the only way you’ll leave Clockers complacent about the plight ofghettoized black youths is if you’re David Duke. But it works. Though Lee spends a lot of time in the lands of moralism and alarmism, his talent and intelligence allow him to transcend the blacks and whites of his messages. He opens Clockers with a mournful, numbing montage of gory corpses - brains oozing onto asphalt, guts spattered on car interiors. It’s a little photo essay to set the tone, as well as to build a very solid context for this thriller about a murder investigation that is jess concerned with whodunit than with will-it-ever-stop. Though the protagonist is a young man on the road to ruin, the star is Brooklyn, specifically the low-cost housing “projects.” Our hero is first glimpsed sporting a pair of blue overalls and no shirt, echoes of cotton club plantations - later, a preadolescent who worships him appears in copycat garb. The walls in the main character’s pad are bright red: the projects are Hell. Clockers, adapted by Richard Price and Lee from Price’s novel, focuses on one of many “clockers” or hustlers, an African-American whose Christian name is Ronald but whose street name is the preemptive Strike; aguy neither memorably good nor completely evil (yet,he deals drugs and packs heat), a guy who isn’t personable, powerful or gifted but is, like the fallen ones at the film’s outset, a human


being. Strike’s face is continually contorted in anger and pain, and the skillfully calibrated suspense of the picture stems from our inability to assess this face; whether it masks a killer, or whether, as pressures from family, friends, crooks, and cops entangle Strike’s legs like plants shooting up through the sidewalk, it is actually a record of someone being choked to death before our eyes. Lee and Price give us white cops so hardened they don’t even notice their snarling, bigoted quips over fresh stiffs can be heard by the

The latest Spike Lee Joint crowd of on-lookers. These pigs feel little urgency to nab culprits, but they do like to strip-search loafers. Then along comes Rocco (Harvey Keitel), who, unlike his partner (John Turturro), does feel a compulsion (albeit puzzling) to solve the latest murder. He still harasses Strike, and can question him unblinkingly even while Strike coughs up blood from an internal plague. But with Keitel’s gruffbut--softening mug, Rocco’ s lovehate relationship with Strike becomes a multi-layered mystery at the heart of Clockers. Now, Lee did not grow up in a milieu like this, and he doesn’t know its vagaries in the same awful way that, say, Martin Scorsese knew Little Italy’s Mean Streets. He lapses, therefore, into fiction. Strike’s elder brother Victor is exaggeratedly romanticized-he works two jobs, nourishes his family, gentles his sibling, and is always polite. (Fortunately, Isaiah

Washington’s soulful eyes express layers of suffering behind Victor’s virtue, and the movie gets away with it). Meanwhile, Strike’s mother is a bulwark of morality, intervening at the end (in only her second dialogue scene) with all the naturalism of a &rrs 62 machina. Of course most other women in the picture are valiant preservers of family values, iess work than being characters. Yet Lee has too much urgency and insight for us to mind much, and he has, as usual, cast powerful performers. Delroy Lindo is Rodney, a middle-aged criminal chieftain who hypocritically lectures local kids on pious behaviour only to co-opt them later into his drug ring. Rodney also coerces Strike into committing murder as a tool to make Strike bondable. Lindo’s mesmerizing performance creates astonishingly subtle gradations of emotion - a smile of acceptance that invisibly blurs into a dangerous flash of teeth, a sad but defiant swagger. John Turturro also has a new, watchable calm as a self-absorbed cop - he doesn’t explode into his usual volcano of tics and hoarseness, and he’s straightbacked. Through it all, Strike, played by newcomer Mekhi Phifer does manage to hold on to the centre. I’m not sure his inscrutabitity is good acting, but in film, unlike theatre, that doesn’t al ways matter. Phifer has the right quality for Clockers; his strange, angry listlessness exemplifies Lee’s ominousness theme. Strike’s face, on which confusion doth make its masterpiece, is all of a piece with the hypnotic effect of Lee’s work. Ultimately, Clockersinfiltrates with the sustained, deceptive stealth of an unseen gas.

Send Me an Angel, Right Now debilitating everyday loneliness of our lives. To be sure, Angels resonates with some familiar postmodern tactics. Moody recasts familiar icons (doomed whaling vessel in “Pip Adrift”, dead film star in “The James Dean Garage Band”) and in “A Good Story” he lampoons the truisms of story structure: crisis, theme, etc. Other pieces take on peculiar shapesa stream-of-consciousness film treatment, deposition notes, a termpaperand the book concludes with “Primary Sources,” in which Moody’s own autobiography takes the form of bibliographic notes appended to some of his favourite books and records. Also included among the “Primary Sources” is an installment of Star Trek: The Next Grnerution that, writes Moody, is “a big episode for those who realize how hard communicating really is.” It’s a recurring theme throughout the collection. Characters are isolated by their own idiosyncracies, and their random overtures to society seem mis-

ome believe that recent years have seen a swing away from intellectual, metafictive concerns. These days, young writers are supposed to be more concerned with simply telling stories than with asking themselves what exactly a story is. If that’s the casethat is, if the postmodern experiment is truly on the declinethen somebody forgot to tell Rick Moody. The NYC-based novelist has just published a book of short fiction that seems to pay homage to landmark ’60s collections like John Barth’s Lost in the Funhouse and Robert Coover’s Pricksongs and Ilesr:ants. In the eleven pieces making upThuRinguj?lrighfest Angels Around Heaven, Moody (like Barth and &over) dismantles narrative conventions and reassembles them into twisted shapes, deliriously playing with structure and form. There is something more to Moody’s achievement, though: a strong emotional investment and power that wasn’t always present in the work of his forbears. Only three books into his career, Moody is already a minor literary superstar, having published in all the right places (Puris Review, Harper’s, N~M? Yorker) and served as a Del&r back-page star to boot. He’s written one rather dull novel (Garden Srtite) and one intriguing one (The ice Sturm) that evinced an affection for kitsch culture as well as a

Amanfor all Seasons willingness to grapple with Big Philosophical Questions. For me, Ihough, it’s taken this new collection of thoughtfully sequenced and arranged stories to bring his work into focus.

placed and unnerving. Accordingly, many stories are imagined as peculiar confessionals in which the narrator unwittingly gives away his own unreliability - or insanity. (Perhaps the best example is “The Apocalypse Notes of Bob Pa:isner”, comprising a delusional student’s creepy, pale fire-stoking termpaper.) It’s the insanity and degradations of the lonely that fuel the best work in Angels. Mesmerizing stories like “The Grid” and “The James Dean Garage Band” comment on the sad, random chaos of our loves and endeavours. And the title story is a harrowing ride through the seamy side of NYC life, with drug addiction, sexual deviance and AIDS marking the path. Tremendously compassionate, but also clear-eyed and honest, and technically daring to boot,irbe Ring off?rightest Angels Around Heaven is a superb literary achievement, like the collection to which it lends its name.

Aman: The Story of a Somali Girl as told to Virginia Lee Barnes & Janice Boddy Vintage Canada 336 pages, $14.95 paperback by Tracy Hunt special to Imprint


man: The Story of a Somali Girl is the story of one woman’s struggle to overcome a male dominated society in order to become her own person. Told to Virgina Lee Barnes and Janice Boddy after Barnes’ death, Aman tells a poignant tale of one girl’s journey into womanhood. Aman has an interesting life and family past to say the least. Her grandmother lived through a tribal war in which she saw most of‘ the males in her family massacred. Only she, three of her sisters, and three of her cousins survived. Her grandmother marries a rich and much older man to have a home and provide a good life for her and her children. including Aman’s mother. Aman’s mother could have written her own book about her life. Her father forced her to marry, at age 15, she divorced 4 months later, married again, then divorced, married a third time, divorced again... all together she was married six times and divorced six times. Getting a divorce in Somalia is a fairly easy thing to do. A husband needs only to get a divorce paper, say Linlqad meaning “I divorce thee” three times in front of witnesses, and the divorce is final. For a woman, its not that simple. she must pester a man for a divorce until he gets sick of her and divorces her, or she can divorce him if he comes at her from behind (interpret as you will), is impotent (which she must prove by having sex with him in front of a judge), or chokes her. A man needs no reason. During her mother’s sixth marriage, Aman was born. When her parents were divorced, she stayed with her mother, which is not the norm. In Somali, you trace your lineage through the father and you are always part of your father’s family. Even when you marry, your first loyalty is to your father’s family. Therefore, when divorce occurs, the children stay with the father. Aman inherited her strength and independence from her mother. After her sixth divorce, her mother dedicated herself to taking care of her mother, her children, and her numerous businesses. In childhood, Aman went through everything from tuberculosis to the death of her sister, to forbidden love between her and a white boy from Italy. At age nine, she was

circumcised, which is the norm in Somalia. During this section I admit that I was disgusted and had my legs crossed as they described how they removed the clitoris and sewed her vagina shut in order to be sure that she will still be a virgin when she marries, which she does when she is thirteen. She marries a man in his SO’s and here her story for independence begins. The marriage takes place without her family’s knowledge and she regrets it from the start. Her husband refuses to give her a divorce and thus she begins a cycle of running away and being brought back to him, during which time she finds a life on the street. Living on the street earns her the name of asharmuuto or prostitute, even though she is not yet. She does learn how to control men and trick them into giving her money. She wants better for herself, and from there the story concentrates on her struggle to rise above her current situation. Aman’s life is interesting. The weakness of the book, though, lies in the way it is told. Aman narrated to two different women in English which is her third language which, frankly, she does not speak that well. There seems to be no editing done at all and the charm of her simple terms and repeating of certain phrases over and over quickly wears thin. Also, Aman is supposed to appear as a victim, yet to me she. was very much in control of what she did. She lies to everyone she meets and seems to thrive in her rebellion. She wants to be accepted, yet she continuously does things which she knows will bring her and her family more shame. Maybe she does this because her father paid no attention to her as a child and she always wanted his approval, and at least this way he notices she is alive. But I’m no psych major. Another thing that bothered me was the overuse of exclamation marks! I know that this is supposed to be a moving and exciting tale but I don’t need all these exclamation marks at the end of every other sentence! Other than that the story she told was fairly entertaining, though I was disappointed at how she ended it. Elasically, she said, “I want to end my story now...” and the reader is left wondering “welLI, what the hell happened?’ In the foreword you know that she married an American in 1982 whom she met in Italy. She ends the story in the mid-sixties while she is married to someone else still living in Somalia. I am disappointed that she did not continue to the: present day. Aman: The Story of a Somali Girl is an interesting look into a different culture. You just have to over look the simplistic way it is told and hope that the authors will someday let us know what happened to Aman.

Believe it or not, this past year Rancid had numerous opportunities to capture the brass ring with a major label deal. And why not? Their sophomore record, Let’s GO, is incredible with quick, short, in-yer-face punk power, and a wicked single to boot (remember “Salvation.“). Would you believe that Madonna’s Maverick label was so interested that Madonna herself sent the boys an incentive package including a Polaroid of herself in a most compromising postition? Anyways, in the true spirit of Fugazi (minus actually starting their own record label,) Rancid told them all to take a hike (but kept the Polaroid no doubt) and opted for another round with punk label extrodinaire, Epitaph. Home to other such household names as NOFX, MU’s Wayne Kramer, Down By Law and...oh yeah, Uffspring, too. Unlike Offspring where Dexter Holland is finishing off a PhD.,

by Dave Fisher Imprint staff Sharing a number of connections with the Poster Children - a former member, same hometown, earlier singles on PC’s little indie label 12-Inch Records ~ the Champaign, Illinois foursome Hum also shares a similarity in sound, as well as with that of the Smashing Pumpkins. The three bands, to my mind, form a sort of Illinois college rock triumvirate, such is the regional definition of their sound. That sound is generally characterised by layers of driving guitars, sharp punctuating percussion, and hazy vocals. In Hum’s particularcase they possess these attributes, but differ by being less frenzied than the Poster Children and nowhere near as self-consiously epic as the Smashing Pumpkins. You ‘d Prefer An Astronaut isn’t an album that immediately grabs you, in fact it almost sounds like routine midwestern grunge, but after a number of listens the band begins to exert a ton of ingenuity for those

Not Rotten

the boys in Rancid can sing from experience. Getting inspiration from living on the streets and doing tons of drugs are what brings that real element to punk music, which is really what its all about. Although Offspring’s music is catchy as hell, it’s content can hardly be the true spirit of punk music. I’m sure none of the members of Off-

spring have really gone out and killed anyone on the freeway or have even been remotely affected by gang violence. None the less, it is what the teenagers want to hear. Rancid is no doubt the “real McCoy”. On their third Epitaph attempt to capture their spirit on disc, they’ve succeeded once again

willing to pay attention. Despite what one might initially think of the record, it becomes readily apparent that Hum is really something quite special, displaying an arsenal of talents like subtlety, nuante, melody, passion, noise, tendemess, abrasiveness, and simply good old songwriting. Best of all, the talentsaren’t contrived or showoffy, but wholly innate and natural. In its entirety You ‘d Frefer An Astrclnaut is a solid album, but the particular standouts are the tight and muscular rockers “The Pod” and “I Like Your Hair Long,” and the beautifully intense and personal “Why I Like the Robins” and “I Hate It Too.” The band’s combination of te derness, aggression and song wri ing craft would normally lead me to believe that the band and album should be rather big, except for a few misgivings. One. the album

only now playing heavily on a ska influence. Ska isn’t foreign to them, though. Their history as members of California’s punk/ska band, Operation Ivy, Rancid is only returning to well grounded roots. Their first single, “Time Bomb”, definitely brings this elemerit into Rancid’s music infusing some welcome diversity into the album. The mix of ska beats work well with the short bursts of energy in other selections and keeps the nineteen tracks moving along at a pace that can be easily gobbled up in one sitting. There are more than a handful of songs here that could be easily released as singles. Tracks like “Olympia Wa.,” “The 11 th Hour,” “Ruby Soho,” and “Journey to the End Of The East Bay,” again take the personal experiences from the members of Rancid and spin them into wicked concoctions of fast talking, heavy playing riffs of power. And all dripping with hook laden phrases and guitar work to boot. . ..And Out Come The Wolves is definitely tamer (listener friendly) than their previous release, which will definitely transfer into a greater listening audience, and more teenagers discovering punk music for the first time.

isn’t immediately lovable; two, the sound probably isn’t as clean and receptive as most radio stations would prefer; and lastly, the album cover (a uniformly blase teal green blanketing the sleeve with a small pathetic cut’n paste zebra in the bottom left-hand corner) is virtually unmarketable. Besides that, the band doesn’t seem to possess what you’d call “starpower.” Quibbles aside, on the strength of their actual music Hum’s future looks an eminently promising one.

by Greg Hood-Morris Imprint staff In a fabled city, about five years ago, there descended a plague. This plague came in the form of flared trousers, and hits of E, and maracas, and crappy haircuts. The plague came in goony dancers with names like Bez, and bands who wanted to be adored. Then came little Timmy Burgess, and his band of merry-makers, following in the footsteps of all that read Roses. They had it, the ability toopen for these gods, to release psychedelic foot-friendly songs like “The Only One I Know,” and became a part of this plague. Suddenly though, as quickly as it had appeared, the plague went away, and the people of the great Northern city either danced to hardcore beats, or went home with a few mates, smoked up and listened to Errol Brown. Out of this second group of people came the next surge from the bastions of the city. This band rocked and rolled, needing only the classic rock and roll supplements ofcigarettes and alcohol. To this heady and popular scene Timmy directed his band, and suddenly there were guitars, loud and full of rock ‘n’ roll, Through four albums, the Charlatans have come full circle, from the aforementioned “indiedance” of “The Only One I Know” on debut album Some Friendly to the Flood -producedBensleen Tenth und Eleventh, a continuation of the Madchester ideal. Suddenly, keyboardist Rob Collins went to prison while the Charlatans were making their third album, the Steve Hillage-produced Up TO Our Hips. With the arrest came a new era for the Charlatans, one which triggered an emotional out-pouring for Tim Burgess, and self revelatory lyrics. With the new album, simply titled The Churlutans, the band has

by James Castle special to ‘Imprint Cursed forever in the public’s mind as essentially a one-hit wonder (“Werewolves of London”), Warren Zevon demonstrates that his unique voice is matched by an equally




ity. Helped along by Zevon’s crystalline production, Mutineer is a surprisingly intriguing release. The album opens with “Seminole Bingo,” the tale of a junk bond king on the run who blows his money in a casino. Simple, yes, but as with all of the songs

continued in a more soulful vein, with songs getting into grooves which work the more avid listener into a veritable Saint Vi tius’ s dance. It is near manna to a group of young people sitting late on a Friday night, drinking wine, when a line comes on like this: “I wanna build my Rome and get high, but I can’t find my matches/ and when you rap me you drive me to say this/hey love, I can’t sing anymore. I’m coming home.” The universal truth. I can’t find my matches. The simple things

that stop you from excelling, from finding your Rome. The delivery is much more powerful on this album than any other Charlatans album, like that last line, from “Just When You’re Thinkin’ Things Over,” delivered in Tim-speak to sound less like “l’m coming home,” and more like “I’m commin’ howme.” Yes, the Charlatans have come full circle, with the grooves and rawness sounding much more like their debut single “Indian Rope” than anything else that they have done. Certainly the Charlatans have been listening to Oasis, but just as equally they might have both gone to the same source, which would definitely be mid-period Stones. After all, weren’t Tim Burgess’ Jaggerisms what always made the Charlatans what they were? on Mutineer, Zevon’s melodies go along way in distinguishing these songs from a, lot of shit on the radio. One of the highlights on the album is a song written by a Judee Sill, entitled “Jesus was a Cross Maker,” higlhlighting Zevon’s abili ty to pick out good songs as well as write them. Perhaps the most Zevonesque track is the second song, “Something Bad Happened to a Clown.” While the “#sad clown” motif is as old as the hills, Zevon still manages to milk a bit more compassion out of it. , Poignant, touching and sometimes a little perverse, Zevon Gves outside the world of flavour of the day altemarockers, and as such is a much apppreciated breath of fresh air.

Make Your Own Beer & Wi#e! \

A decade ago, Canadian rock was still in its infancy, and a difficult childhood at that. Very few acts were able to make a solid impact on the recording industry, and even fewer went on to a career. Thankfully, that trend is now in reverse, as more and more Canadian acts are staking their claim in the industry. London’s The Morganfields are pil~z of the recent explosion of musical talent in Southern Ontario. Along with other breakthrough acts like treble charger and The Rheostatics, Canadian music has never looked stronger.

According to an article published recently in the Village Vuice, bands like Pram, Laika, and Long Fin Killie are the future of underground music. Here I speak of the tn.~ underground, as opposed to what the mass media deems “alternative.” The future that publication speculates about is a hybrid of many sorts of disparate forms jazz, early 80s synth, fuzzy squalling guitars, hip hop, just about anything you can think of - into something that defies genre placement. Full of instrumental periods, too synthy to be rock, yet too rooted in guitars and drums to be techno, it’s something called “Post Rock,” and apparently it’s in high demand in the hip clubs in New York at the moment. A spiritual cousin to this concept would be the notion of “trip-hop” that’s all the rage these

IMPRINT, Friday, September 29,1995 Joy is a solid effort from The Morganfields. There are a few interesting tracks, but nothing to really get excited over. Several of the songs seem to have little to distinguish them, with the end result being an album that’s quite easy to listen to, but not memorable. The best song on the CD is “Sorry For Me.” The guitar work through the song carries it along quickly, however, the lyrics are mildly repetitive :.;:: (Alun Piggins, the :::yir

burst the floodgates open. It’s an intriguing concept, looking into the crystal ball of musical trends, but it’s almost impossible to say with certainty any what will be selling ten years from now. Anyhow, in the meantime Too Pure seem commited to being the Sub Pop of Post Rock, with all three bands mentioned in the first paragraph on the label (you might add Moonshake to the list as well). Long Fin Killie takes the time to work some Celtic instrumentation into their songs, among other things. In fact the instrumentation credits include a bouzouki, violin, mandolin, and dulcimer, among other things exactly how they play this live is anyone’s guess. It’s a dense, and at times distancing sort of album, though not without its charms. “(A) Man Ray” is one of the warmer songs, with a light bass and string loop mixed with smooth jazzy percussion. “How I Blew It With Houdini” continues in a sedate vein, as strange beats mark the sort of repetition that this form of music is supposed to thrive on. It works well, in its own quirky way. embracing the exact thing that they used to rebel against and it is downright embarrassing. Grave Dantm-s Union saw the band partially abandon their punk roots in favour of a radio friendly sound and commercial success.

singer REALLY wants you to feel sorry for him). Regardless, it is easily the top song on Joy. Not because it’s an incredible song, but simply because nothing else stands out. By the middle of the album, the songs seem to blend together, to the point that the!, are indistinguishable. If The Morganfields wish to achieve the same success as many of the other up-and-coming groups in Canada, they will need to diversify their sound, so that every song does not sound the same. Jov was a dull album from star&o finish. However, behind the tedium, there was a faint possibility of better things to come. That the group has talent was evident, it just didn’t burst forth on this album. Hopefully, we’ll see that materialize on The Morganfields’ next album,

There are rnore surprises elsewhere. Grinding rock guitars make an appearance on “Homo Erectus” in places you 1e:ast expect them to. “Corngold” layers guitars and strings upon one another to create a slowly metamorphizing masterpiece. And none other than Mr. Mark E. Smith makes an appearance on ‘The H:eads of Dead Surfers,” barking in his usual cynical fashion. This is music for music addicts, challenging material that will appeal most to those who listen to and buy tons of varied types of albums. Other people may have trouble wrapping their heads around this. In a nutshell, Post Rock is going to need some metamorphoses to really appeal to the common human being. In 1992 “April Fool” hinted at the rock direction Soul Asylum was to unfortunately move in. It is now 1995 and that punk edge is gone. Instead the listener is greeted by the Tom Petty style country rock of “To My Own Devices” and “Bittersweetheart” as well as sad efforts like “Misery,” “Just Like Anyone” and “Hopes Up.” Who needs it? Sounding like the dregs of the 80s rock world&t Your Dim Lighf Shine is downright appalling. The eighties are tooI recent in memory to be considered retro, so fans are left to wonder just what Soul Asylum was trying to do here. Their live shows may continue to impress, but Let Your Dim Light Shine can be chalked up as one of the biggest disa.ppointments of the year!

A&ur 3%?M? EpitaphKa~gu by Chris Aldworth Imprint staff I knew that the punk rock of the 1940s had reached the mainstream the day I saw some guy in Ray Bans, Birkenstocks, a Polo shirt and a baseball cap turned backwards cruising the strip for babes in a yellow Jeep with Green Day cranking out of the speakers. That said, here are two of the latest installments in the ever growing world of punk rock bands. While I sometimes hope that this latest punk will surge soon peterout, with bands like All and Pennywise soldiering on, you can rest assured that it’s not over just quite yet.

thought that it would - generic punk rock! In a few words, that’s what Pummel is all about. Although All is very proficient, we have finally come to the saturation point of this new wave of punk. After all the rehashing of punk by countless bands who shall remain nameless, All comes off as more of the same. Lots of fun, high intensity songs with three chords, listenable vocals and ample guitar and drums. There is enough here to keep a die hard punk fan enthused. It will also provide suitable entertainment for those who have just re:ently been intioduced to the genre, but for me I’ve heard it all before. “Million Bucks,” “ Black Sky” and “Miranda” are the few album highlights. “Million Bucks” is as solid a song as you are likely to find in this

more 90s clone punk rock that is starting to dominate mainstream radio, yawn. Personally, I think 90s punk

rock is over or at least should be. With members of All able to date themselves back to various 80s SST punk outfits, they should have recognized that the end is near. Instead, they tried to cash in and it just doesn’t work. All is a betterthan-average punk band but given their lineage they should be “oh so much more” and just aren’t. Pick this up only if you already have the entire Epitaph back catalogue. Continuing to flood the market with punk rock products, Epitaph has sent out another doozy of an album. About Time is a punk workout from California’s Pennywise. Again short on material (both albums clock in at less than thirty five minutes) it is a spirited romp through those much tested waters. Quick and witty, it too is guilty of being uninventive and suffers the same fate as Pummef, Lead off single “Peaceful Day” is agreat little ditty but once you’ve heard it, you’ve heard the whole album. Put this one at the bottom of your list when choosing your next Epitaph pure hase. As much as I might like punk I had difficulty making it through either album in one listen and each one was only thirty minutes long. Perhaps it’s time for this punk revolution to be put to rest for another ten years.

ARTS by Pat Merlihan Imprint staff There is no distinguishing this Canadian band from most other fellow Canuck musicians who sway heavily into the melting pot of folk rock. By melting pot, I mean that so many “proud Canadian” bands just seem to congeal into one another and start to sound just....Canadian. Weeping Tile is not so different in that you instantly get a sense of geography, a very typical theme that Canadian bands tend to gravitate towards. Look at The Trdgitally Hip, whose dilemna is of not being able to provide an iota of significance to our American neighbours. This national crisis I?!?] may be primarily the reason that Downie’s lyrics focus around the Canadiana, which our American neighbours really couldn’t care less about. Weeping Tile, of course, is no Tragically Hip, but they share

by Chris Edginton special to Imprint Don’t let the first few bars of this album scare you off. No, it’s not a band playing ska on speed, it’s DDT, Vancouver’s latest edition to the growing music scene of the West Coast. A five piece who have slowly built up a huge grassroots following in their hometown. DDT consists of Corey White on “vocals, megaphone,trumpet,beer,” Brian Howes on “vocals and luck,” Mike Stand on “guitars and pig squeal,” Jon Taschuk on “bass and bottom,” and Bobby James on “drums, percussion and looks.” Lutgmp is their “in your face” debut album, set to be released September 19th. The seven tracks on this album are pleasingly quite varied, that is to say, that they’re not all of the same format. Some of the tunes, such as “Overripe” and “Prison Friend,” are of a ska vein with a sound similar to that of the late

Kingston. Fortunately for Weeping Tile, they’ve just been picked up by Warner, andeepee is actually their independent release, released almost a full two years ago. Their debut major label release is due out within the next month and it will

hopefully bring a full-fledged sound and direction to the music and escape the route of so many other Canadian bands.

Grope Toads. Others are just hard punk/rock tunes, casual for a party but definitely not for those late night study sessions. They’re not necessari ly relaxing sounds. But where many bands have a tendency to get into a certain groove of music, leaving all tracks sounding the same, DDT have managed to avoid this often gaping hole. This lack of a niche will certainly prove advantageous down the road, as it’s tough to catagorize their entire sound. The first single “Man In The Boat” is a catchy little number with an “in your head for the rest of the day” chorus, but it is definitely not the best track on the album. Utilizing both vocalist/rappers Corey White and Brian Howes on the track “Blow,” DDT have got an all-star tune that sounds a little like a Canadian version of Rage

Sarah Harmer, formerly of Toronto’s Saddletramps, fronts and writes for Weeping Tile. Her strong dominant voice serves upmore than just similar sounding folk rock, but just isn’t at times properly executed. Although Suzanne Vega comes to mind on slower tunes, other ones are distinctly Sarah filled with inspiration of making music because she wants to. The eight original songs are pretty good, and easily accessible to listen to. With guest appearances on eepee, the extra vocals, cello and piano make this barebone recording come across sounding big and impressively good. It is no surprise that a cover of Neil Young’s “Don’t Let It Bring You Down” secures a place on this disc, but is refreshing only in that they’ve taken a great song and made it their own. It’s hard to say at this point how major label success will influence, or affect Weeping Tile, but hopefully we’ll see a good Canadian band make good in the sometimes swampy pool of music industry hiatus.

The Woods focus on singing love songs, and appropriately the first track is entitled, “Love Songs.” The themes throughout the album are simple and focus on love won and lost and the quirks of life. This is their second album, fol-

Beatles, Byrds and Big Star. The style is a mix of melodies, harmonies, and crisp, ringing guitars which revolve around some well built tunes that are never longer than three minutes. The third track, “Super Geek,” ’ - CL, A---,--I &es a quick drum beat and chorus to the best effect, and is the standout track on the album. “Nervous” is also catchy with a revolving harmony during the chorus and a fancy guitar solo. The group started up on the Baltimore music scene, and gigs in support of the Cranberries, Matthew Sweet and the Proclaimers are what have made the unit much tighter and created arrangements

Against The Machine. A super track with plenty of sing along ability. Despite the positive initial impact of Lotgoap, its seven tracks total a mere twenty-one minutes. In my book that’s EP length and paying LP prices is a little discouraging -check it out though. All in all, a powerful little debut. Watch for tour dates around town in promotion of the album, and support Canadian music.

that are more ingenious. The album is a collection of eighteen short songs, which demonstrate playing and writing skills that are much more honed after night after night playing on the road. The Woods are Matt and Brandt Huseman on guitar and bass respectively, Miles Rosen on drums and Ira Katz on guitar. The vocals are shared by all members of the band, who use a chorus in many of the tunes to great effect. Songwriting is the focus of

It took me a while toget through “Given It All Away,” the first track off Hamilton-based The Walk CD Turbine. Every time I turned the CD on, something came up...laundry, wash my hair, bury the family dog, etc. There is always a tentative step to take when listening to or reviewing a new CD, especially if you’ve never heard of the band...whether it was worth the money, or will there be more than one good song to make it worthwhile. Which leads to the real reason I picked up this CD: The Walk

Big Maney item is a standout album that is worthwhile for any fan of the soft pop sound and imaginative love songs.

perform a cover of Billy Bragg’s “The Price I Pay,” the only cover of a Bragg song that I actually liked the first time I heard it. Lead singer Dave Allan does justice to the song in his own upbeat way, but what first disappointed me about this band is that they have the one quality that most Canadian bands seem to share...the musical style of The Tragically Hip. But I got through that disappointment, and after several more listening sessions, I actually came to enjoy Thie Walk. They seem to transcend the typical Hip influence, and I detected other influences to include the Watchmen, Crash Vegas, and 13 Engines to name a few Canadian bands. Of course, like most muscians, the lyrics (as with most) usually involve life:, love, understanding relationships, and death. Songs that stand out inTurbine include “Fi ne.” Bragg’s “The Price I Pay,” the 13 Engines guitar inspiration in “Unimpressed,” “Beautiful and Boring,” and “Puzzle Pieces.” The most interesting song is “Bouncy C”’ taken from the Martin Short sketch involving the cigar smoking, phIlem-hacking parody ~1 George Gershwin who makes up songs starting with “Give me a ‘C’...a bouncy ‘C’ and ending with “dadado, dadadee, ah da hell wit it!” If you’re into local indie bands that sound really good on a major record label, I highly recommend purchasing this CD. If you don’t like indie bands who have sold out, then go back to listening to crap 1ikeF’lipper;BlowsChunksorGwar. If indie bands suck on major labels, that’s because they sucked as indie bands; they’ll still sound the same whether it’s1 a major label or not.

Blue,” is in fact ablues song, somewhat atypical for the Supersuckers

but fitting with the mood of the CD and a nice closing to the album. ?he rest of the songs are Supersuckers as usual - Eddie Spaghetti’s throaty vocals, a lot of crunching yet melodic guitars, and just a tinge of country. Don’t let the mention of country scare you - these songs aren’t of the “loving and leaving” kind. It’s more like “Ioving, leaving, coming back and shooting in the back of the head” music. Still, despite their Seattle roots, the ‘suckers have a redneck attitude straight from the southem States, like the folks from “Deliverance” with guitars. If you like the Supersuckers, add this CD to your collection immediately. If you don’t like the Supersuckers, then you probably won’t have read this far into the review. And if you’re looking for some fun, highly energetic music in the Sub Pop vein, check out Sacrilicious. May your soul be untroubled s

previous album, I was amazed at the change of style on “Voice Of Reason.” It seems to be more focused on the songs rather than individual highlights which was predominant on Mood Swings. This brings out a very different Harem Scarem. The album settles nicely and shows a lighter side to the band. Songs like “Blue” and “Let It Go,” show signs of Harem delving into new music territory. Vocalist Harold Hess’s unique voice and Pete Lesperance’s guitar wizardry further add to the songs. There is also the appropriate “Candle,” and the smokin’ title track. If there is a drawback to this

new release, it would be the lack of heavy rockers that Harem do so well. Don’t get me wrong, there are great ones on this disc. My favorite track, “The Paint Thins,” shows Harem Scarem at their best heavy rock salvo. Lesperance really shows off his great guitar licks in a frenzy on this one. This is a good effort by Harem Scarem, if not a little mellower than their previous outing. But like all good bands, they change their sound from album to album. It’s a good sign from a promising up and coming band. If you like good solid hard rock mixed with a lighter theme to it, I’d pick up this disc.

Roar they do, through fourteen tracks of redneck devil music done as only the bastard crew of the Supersuckers can. Devii music? Actually, it seems to me that if the Supersuckers did have a personal relationship with the Lord of Darkness, it would be less of a master/slave relat&ship and more like a “So, Satan, how about them Jays?” type of thing.

by Heather Calder Imprint staff This collection of artists, all women, was produced to benefit Rape Crisis Centres across Canada. Not only a worthy cause, but an album worth picking up simply for the diversity and creativity of its contributors. The album begins with Lorna Crozier’ s reading of her poem “Fear of Snakes.” Always controversial, Crazier is best known for her vegetable poems - “Carrots are fucking the earth” - and her trademark sensuality appears here too, as well as in her closing “Dictionary of Symbols.” Crozier is accompanied by spoken word artists Evelyn Lau

by Ohad Lederer special to Imprint The first thing to be said about this band is that not once will this review mention dear departed Sloan. Too late, I’ve already done it. Oh well, The Super Friends must be used to it by now, and for the time being, and for a long time coming, the two bands will be inextricably bound. What is there to be said about this quartet ? Only that their album is gritty and raw and it has just the right element of sing-songability that makes the album incredibly fun to listen to. By a11accounts they

and Lynn Crosbie. Lau’ s voice lacks dramatism, but Crosbie and Crozier caress the words, read with sensuality and intensity. Their poems have the same qualities on the page. Lau speaks with her usual cynicism, writing in “Nineteen:” “But he calls you baby girl and you watch porn movies together/ . . . you know he’s your last chance.” Singing on the album are well artists like Sarah known McLachlan, Meryn Cadell, Kate and Ann McGarrigle, Crash Vegas, Mae Moore, and Taste of Joy (one of whom was formerly part of Lava Hay). The songs and voices vary as much as possible; McLac hlan contributes her Freedom Sessions version of “Good Enough”, while Veda Hille adds an ani defranco-like treatise on true love in “Well I Guess Not.” The running theme to the album is, appropriately, the relationship (often destructive) between

men and women. It is sad, and thoughtful, andat times angry. Veda Hille expresses it best when she speaks/sings “because were I his, wouldn’t I have to/straighten my linesfiegibilize my script/ write him into a room already full?” It seems to me that women would find this album more accessible than would men, simply because the messages there are women-centred. Men will, however, enjoy the sound of the album. These women have sweet and angelic voices, and the recordings are better than most compilations. The inclusion of spoken word artists makes for an interesting break in what might otherwise become background music. This album needs attention to listen to, and takes work to get into the depth of, but the effort is well worth the reward. And your $14.99 at any fme record store will make a contribution well worth your time.

Charlie Sexton hasbeen around for a while. He was a one-hit wonder in the 1980s with his sole successful single, “Beat’s So Lonely.” He later formed a group called the Archangels which failed to produce any chart-topping albums. His latest effort is produced by music veteran Malcolm Bum, and is a diverse effort. The album’s opening track, “Neighborhood” is a Lenny Kravitz-esque song which succeeds largely due to the energy and drive which is evident. The second track, “Wishing Tree” is also quite powerful. If the

entire album followed the energy of these songs, it would probably be quite good. Unfortunately, songs such as “Plain Bad Luck and Innocent Mistakes” are present on the album, and have absolutely no redeeming value whatsoever. It almost seems like he dedicated this album to his influences, as in addition to the aforementioned Kravitz-wannabe song, he also performs “Home Sweet Home,” which could have bee:n written by U2, and “Railroad,” with an intro that Jimmy Page might play after applying cortisone to his arthritic knuckles. “Spanish Words” sounds like an overproduced leftover of the seventies. All in all, the album is passable, but 1 don’t think that Under the Wishing Tree will launch Sexton in the annals of rock’n’roll history.

rocked the NXNE this summer in Toronto and, although only allotted twenty-five minutes at Sloan’s penultimate concert, Edgefest Three, they rolled through anumber of their pop ditties and had the people dancing. So who are The Super Friendz, and what do they do? They are Drew Yamada, Charles Austin, and MattMurphy-three (and this isn’t hard to guess) Haligonians. Their style is all their own but you swear it’s Sloan’s and yet you know it isn’t. This isn’t exactly the proper descriptive style employed by most reviewers, but mock up, scaledown isn’t an album with a style. And although this may be an aIbum with different singing voices and no true singers in the bunch, this is where the Sloan similarities end. It’s impossible to imagine the members of

Sloan playing The Super Friend2 songs and vice versa. The Super Friendz, when it comes down to it, are far more low key, probably not as talented musically, but just as gutsy if not more so. Brutally honest and down to earth, this album smokes. “Rescue Us From Boredom” is a standout, with lyrics like: “Drove two hundred miles, my clothes were out of style by the time that we arrived. was so uptight, he saw a chance to fight, said ‘I really don’t know why we love you’...” The early favourite appears to be the al bum opener “10 lbs” which is apparently getting airplay on Muchmusic. Oh god, maybe the Super Friendz will be the next Moist! A personal favourite off the album is the hilarious “Karate Man” with the lines: “Dressed in plain

clothes and no one knows who you are, Karate Man, step into the bar, lookin’ for the skinhead boys who pushed your brother too far...” At the same time, the album seems to be very personal, including songs that are calling out to friends being swept away by the “Undertow” and one song, “Better Call,” where the singer/narrator claims to be the husband of Lady Chatterly. When the album was first released, Murder billed the band as “the next Beatles.” On the back cover and from behind a curtain on stage, the anticipation all over their faces. And who knows, if the Super Friendz play it right, maybe that will be them one day. As it is, the hordes of kids that ruin concerts for all us cool people are already starting to get in on the secret, I mean band. On a recent CFNY appear-

ante, a young sounding female caller, who probably dialled furiously for fifteen minutes just to get through, asked the band the all important question: “Uh, what’s your favourite colouf?” After promising to make no Sloan references at all, I see my word is mud. I3ut it’s not my fault. I mean, I made it this far without mentioning that Chris Murphy is playing drums for the Super Friends these days. And al though the Super Friend2 can’t go anywhere or be written about without repeated references to Sloan, if the band keeps putting out al;bums as refreshing and cool as this one, people will, one day, forget about Sloan and say “Hey, have you heard that new band, the Super Friendz? They rock.” And that’s when they will have finally made it.
