According t o subsection VI1I.I of the Federation of Students bylaws, which pertains to absentees, "Any voting member of Students' Council who satisfies any of the conditions listed below shall be deemed to have relinquished his/ her scat and the scat shall be vacant, subject to ratification by a simple majority of Students' Council. Councillors facing removal shall be allowed to defend themselves during the debate on the ratification of their removal.

Danielle J eanneault, scicr regular councillor, stressed the i portance of regular attendancc council meetings. "I believc tha the councillor is not present, students are not adequately rep sented because the students' cc ments, recommendations and s gestions are not being heard," said.

Although Bokhari and Young were notified that they were at risk of losing their seats, neither councillor attended the council meeting on September 1 5 to defend herself. Bokhari said she was unable to attend due to illness, while Young is currently on a work-term in Nova Scotia. Both councillors said they notified members of students' council about their absence from the last meeting.

olicics exist to providc the rule of w m an organization and to andardize the conduct of the rganization's activ~ties. Feds policies are not properly laintained. For this and other :asons,they don't properly mction. It is fme for people to say that dicies are not important, if that is hat they believe. If that is what ley believe, however, they should 3t have policies and should not )use those that they do have. For all of last pear the Federation [Students had no co-op service. It not from not wanting to serve co2 students, nor is it from co-op udents not wanting to benefit om those services it is because in [arch of 2001 Feds removed the )-op service structure and d d not

replace it. This situation persisted for more than 12 months, although it could have been corrected in two different general meetings, until last May. They said that they would continue as though a co-op service did exist, whch defeats thc purpose of their bylaws. In the Watpaign referendum last November we saw how the Feds continued to use an obsolete policy after discovering it was invalid. This was done to suppoa the side for which the Feds president had shown he was a proponent. The results were appealed to a thud level, Feds board of directors, which was an act last permitted by policy two years prior. In last winter's election, the election committee applied an obsolete policy that had been changed by councd only two months earlier. The wording of the new policy indicated that what some ckdidates were f m d for was not a violation. Ignorance of the rules is not a valid excuse for candidates but it has been for the committees that apply them.

On April 7, ctudents' council pasaed many changes to the election procedure The orignal motron that was circulatedwas to change all four policies that deal with elections, that is the electionproccdure, rcferend m , byelection, and senate election and by election procedure The motion that was passed was to change only one procedure This means that the general rules process and campagning for referenda and elections are dfferent Councilchanged the procedure si,pficantly, reorganizmgitand modxfymg many parts The changcs include the definltton of campaigning, spending limits for candidates, the process for checkingthe validity of nommations, liabilim for campaign violations, allowing

unattributed complaints, and the campaignperiod. This will cause difficulties especiallyif a refcrendumrs hcldat the same time as the beds elections inFebruary The senate clections,whtcharc held at the same time as Feds electionsand co-ordinated by Feds, will encounter difficultyas rules of the process for one differ from the other. Developingandcorrectingpolicy isn't always a popular job, but the Feds policy, procedure and bylaw rcview committee wdlhave to clean it up.

The truth hurts

This letter ism response to the article wntten by Aaron Lee-Nudrick con cernmghis blunt criticismof our PM, Jean Chrttien I was appalled at the ease atwhich you disregarded the truthfulness of Mr Chrttien's comments andalso by how you focused on dependence on the U S to "defend us if we are ex er attacked " True, Chretien's remarks may have not made h m win ally buddies m theV'hiteFTousebut it's about time someone laid out the shocking truth We all know that the western world is by far richer and more mflu ential than most parts of the world I am not condemning the wealth that the firstworldhas achieved I Iowever, the west's constant humiliation of someeastern countrieshas r c d t e d m a lot of angry resentment I am not justifying terrorism by sayingthis but the fact of the matter 1s mpsticc will mevitably result in negative feedback, often in the form of violence in response to people beingrobbcd ofthe basic human right to choose, which we, in thc western world, take for grantcd I-iaveyouevergiven athoqht as to hn,itwould feel tolive everyday at the mercy of anattonthat controlled cverypenny you spent, or how itwould feel to be a homeless refugee or a prisoner of war? Mr Chrttien is not %laming the wctims' as Stcphan Harper pomted out but condemning the circumstancesthat have resultedin brutally lullmg the undesen,ingmdividuals of September 11, who had little control on the U S '5 foreign policy Something has to be changed and the PMhas taken the courage and the unselfishness to pomt this out \Ye should open our eyes and gtve credit to Mr Chretien for his action5

FRIDAY, S k P l EWE3Eli27,200:

The futility of the Kyoto protocol

YOU! OFF M Y PLANET Global warmmg -is it real? It really depends on who y h talk to Hardcore environmentalistsswear on their lives that the end of the world is imminent, conjuring up images of the planet awash in black smoke and seagulls drowned m oil Bollocks, say the enviro-skeptics,it's all treehugger propaganda and proceed to produce a swath of statisticsthat show the earth's temperature changesare clearly cychcal One Web srte evenlinked to a 1975Ne~mveekarticle thatwarned of the sinister "global cooling," which mas to bring a new ice age The truth and you don't hear me say this too often hes somewhere in the middle Is our world at risk? Probably But how great is that risk) \Then we view the issue of environmental fragliq this way, the Kyoto protocol can be assessed as a sort of insurance policy for the Earth Most people buy insurance for plenty of things -their cars, their property, even their lives So why not the Earth? Actually, the question isn't so much whether or not we should buy Earth insurance -we should -hut rather, are the premiums too high? Agam, both sides of the debate h e up No, says Quebec the cost (to Quebec) is relatively small compared to the galn. Yes, says Alberta it will put their economy in a straightjacket, and the gain will be negligible The government of Canada,

more specificallyJean Chrttien, weighed m with its usual attempt to agree w*th both sides of an issue So as a result, we're sign% Kyoto -except it isn't Kyoto It's Icyoto with an asterisk Why? Because Canada decided to unilaterally (as m without consulting the other countries who signed the agree mcnt) alter some of Kyoto's terms in order to allow a to meet its obligations By giving ourselves credit for exportmg"c1ean" energy -hydroelectricityandnaturalgas -to the United States, Canada reduces its obligations by some 30 percent So let's see of the 178 countries who agreed to the pmfully-hardto-hammer-out protocol m its existing form, Canada expects to retroactively revise it just like that Unsurpnsmgly, when this intention became public the Europeans, ever the commrtted environmental dogooders, were unimpressed The Amencans,always clearer tn their stance, couldcare less, havingalready said they're not going to ratify Kyoto, period Oh right -I forgot to mention that little detail The bigest polluters on the planet have said they arcn't going to commit Neither are China, India, Russia or Bra~il,all developing(read heavily polluting) countries with massive populations This is the reason why the Kyoto debate is useless Most of the biggest polluters, or soon-to-be biggest polluters, are excluded It's like a puz7lc with half the pieces mtssmg Or, to go back to the insurancepolicy analogy,it's Lke buying insurance from a guy on the street. if you won't get the payout, why buy the insurance?

A look at American involvement in the Middle East

MAPS AND LEGENDS Jean Chrttien said in his now famous comments on the terrorist attacks of September 11, that the West must accept some responsib& rty for the terror attacks in America Horribly tuned? Without question Completely off-base, as my colleague Aaron-LeeWudrick sug gested last week? No. Now before you break out the angryletter writingpens,consider this K h l e America is not to blame for what happened, it has not done the people of the Middle East any favours over the past half-century and a number of its foreign pohcies have had an enormously destructive impact on the regon People have a long memory for inlustice and unfortunately, the United States has passed around more than cnough to go around for the people of this regon Here's a historv of all the wonderful things America has done for the Middle East over the past 50 years In 1951, the people of Iran democratically elect P m e Minister Mohammed Mossadegh, who promses to nationalize the nation's oil industry, whch was up until that point controlled by the British hlyr in a little anti-communist hysteria and m 1953 President Eisenhower

has the CIA overthrom Iran's elected goverilrncntand mstalls the more pliant Shah into power This keeps the oil flowing for another quarter of a century but the pcoplc of Iran gradually tire of being oppressed by the Shah's CIA trained sccretpolice and of seeing their country's massive oil wealth being spent on expensive weaponry rather than on develop ing their nation In 1979, the Iranians overthrow the Shah and mittate the Islamlc revolution Ayatollah Khomemi assumes control and much to the actual surprise of the United States, he hates America After itsgreat success in Iran, Americanpolicy moved next door to Iraq. Luckily,a friendly,oil-rich, communist-hating dictator (Saddam Hussein) was already in charge there, making another coup unnecessary In 1980,he invaded Iran (to thc secret delight of the Americans) and thenpenodically unleashed chemical weapons on the Iranians and his own people Apparently, the fact that IIusscin had (and used) chemtcal weapons was not a justification for Ll S Invasion at that point Ten years later, I Iussem invaded the wrong country and the Americans turned Iraq into a parhilg lot, but decided to 1eax.e Saddam as chief attendant Another decade later,the Iraqis are in the rather unique situation of bcmg ruled by a terrible tyrant and being periodically bombed by the world's only superpower And the Americans mght invade, again They, too, hate America

Is it any wonder that western f e m s t s are perceived as, in the words of a female L a t i n h e n c a n revolutionary"ugly, overprivileged women trying to be men"? I recently signed up for Women's Studies 101with professor Jean Noble hoping to disprove this perceivedimage ofwestern fern nism, but, to my dismay, the content of this course drsappointcd and disillusioned me This course started from the position that women are the same as men and thus there should not be any distinction between men and women This sounds like a nice philosophical assumption that one might mdulge when speaking of an ideal society However, the course fails to ground as position in any empiricalevidenceand to recogime many of the problems that women face such as pay mequity, violence

agamst women, date rape and the disproportionate number of women living m poverty I fear that the ph~losophicalposition that this course adopts leads to extremely dangerous positions that downplay the discrimmation that many women do in fact facebecause they are women Havingcome face to face with discrimination aimed at women specificallybecause of their gendcr, I would like to take you to Jordan, a little country m the Middle East where I spent some time this summer and vividly encountered women's oppression in the form of sexual harassment against women on the street, zero legislation against domestic abuse and honour killings I'll never forget the look of shame on the face of the girl who told me about how rape was a common thing at the university she attended and about her neighbout who was honour killed by her

f d y because she was raped Or the way the women laughed when asked about laws that protect women from abusive family members or that provide women with any way of escapingdomesttc violence. Thts made me realize that some women do in fact face issues which are profound and impact tht vervccsence of their being Many o these women do not live in distanc lands but are right here in Canada where one in three womcn faces sexual abuse in her lifetime, where many women face abusive partners rape, or are forced mto the sex trad~ because ofvarious reasons Yet for some reason, these issues are rarely addressedin women's issues classrooms or otht "feminist" activities such as KTIRCr's wymins week These socalled f e m s t s prefer to occupy their tune talking about masturbation and making clay goddesses, thaneven paying lip service to the real problems many women face.

As a pre\chooler, I loved Sesame Street In fact, to this day I still remember wonde;ing at one point if I could ever outgrow the show Nope, I never did Perhaps that is due to its educational value or as entertainment value Or, perhaps it is due to an carly permnal identtfication w-ith Telly, the most neurotic and the most fuchsia of the Sesame Streetcrew. SesameStreet createsmuppets that are vibrant, funny and extreme. There is the Count with h ~ s obsessivenumbering, Oscar with his lack of sympathy and hygiene, Kermit with his slow acceptance of "being green" and of course, all those dancing sheep. PBS does not, however, create muppets out of spite or vain There is a place and a lesson for every one For example, what can be made of Erne and Bert?Klile the station has vchemently denied all mmours of the

male pair's supposed sewality, any child can see that the two sleep in the same bedroom, share the same clothes, baths, and often pm-a ;md p c e (usually to Rcrt's dismay) \Tho really cares if Erme and Bert are really gay? 131 tuning into them, children deri~ e all sorts of lesaons on cooperationand alternative relationshms Plus Bert looks super cute m a turtlencckl Additionally,PBS has created Cookie Monster, a frequenter of cookics and also "healthy food" and 'l'ingo, a new international muppet th& "makes learmng English fun " In every muppet then, there is a lesson to be learned Just look at what'^ happening in South Africa This upcomng Monday thc South Africanchapterof Sesame Street will introduce a brand new character to its cast of muppets Kam, the yellow-furred,green vest-weanngmuppet enloys nature, collecting things and promoting healthy self-esteem. Oh, she is also infected with the HIV virus It is estimated that 1 m 9 South Africans are infectedwithHIVand preschoolers are no exception.In fact, with only one South African hospital offemg a drug treatment


to children with AIDS, the virus has become a national problem So, in an effort to educate the nation's children, 1abalam Sesame i q acquaintmgchildrcnandparents alikc with ]<am, thc muppet whose name is derived from the Tswana word for "acceptance " Not surprisingly, the new muppet has become international news and PBS has been stormed by a largely Republicanprotestm the United States Most of t h c s ~ govcrment officials are arguing that an HIV infected muppet would not be appropriate for a preschool audience and want Kami to keep to the other side of the Atlantic To that PBS is pointing out that Kam is to be introduced as an orphaned muppet, onc that was born with the virus Also, very few scx references should be expectedas ~ a mwill i be teaching her TakalamSesamcfriends wch things as what to do with a cut finger Thus far, Kam has no plans to pack her bags for America Surely Kami will make a we1 come addition to the Takalani Sesame gang.

A sunny afternoon on the patio. The selection ofvcgetablesincludes cruditks, such as carrots and celery, mesclun (mixed greens) and sliced tomatoes with pcsto and grated Parmesan. There were only two types of salad dressing offered, Caesar and raspberry vinaigrette, but when my companionaskedthe waitress for some balsamic vinaigrette, shc quickly brought him a dish of it. The generous slice of angus roast beefwas closer tomedium-wellthan to the me&um-rare that I prefer, but still moist and tender because of the q d t y andmarblmgof the meat. Fresh roasts are prepared throughout the morning, so timing is everythingif youwant your meat medium-rare. The horseradish was fresh and quite spicy. Alongside the roast beef, a cook prepared fresh omelettes and pasta. There are numerous fillings to choose from, includingcheese,hamand fresh vegetables.No one atmy table tried the omelettes, but they lookedrery good.

Tra&tionalbreakfastfare, such as bacon, sausage and eggs Benedict, is made in advance and kept in warming trays. The eggs Aenedict, in particular, suffered from this treatment, with the sauce drying out and the English muffin becoming soggy. A selection of baked goods, including croissantsandpitas,was all freshand quite addictive. Dessert selectionsincluded fresh fruitaswellasmore calorie-ladenfare. The fruit consisted of mostly watermelon with some honeydew and freshpineapple. One of my companions was quite taken with the strawberrymousse,whichwas fulloffresh strawberries and not too sweet. My favourite is the chocolate eclairs,although the brownieswere alsogood. 'l'he Sunday brunch runs until 2 p.m., so early andlate risers alike can sample this rcry satisfying buffet.

3-4 large beef ribs or several soup bones and 1/2 Ib. stewing beef 1 onion, quartered 1 carrot, halved 1 stalkcclery, halved 2 bay leaves 2/3 cup pearl barley 3 carrots, shccd 1 omon, h l y sliced other vegetables (optional) diced potato (optional) salt and pepper.

Place the beef ribs, onion, celery and bay leaves in a large pot. (If you are using soup boncs, you will add the stewing beef during the final 2 hours of coolung.) Add sufficient water to corer by 1inch. Bring to a boil, cover ,reduce heat to low and simmer for 56 hours,oruntil the meat is tender and the brothis richlpcoloured.Addmore water ifit is necessary to keep the bones covered. I,me a colander or sieve with a couple of layers of cheesecloth and strain the soup. Remove the boncs to a plate to cool, along with any meat

d that has fallen off them. Discard the xygctablesandbay 1eaves.Atthis point, you can refrigerate the soup and slum the fat off, or continue. Bring the stock to the boil. Add 1-2 tsp. salt. Remember,you canadd more saltlaterbut it'smorc difficult to take away. Add the barleyandcook for a 1/2 hvuroruntil itisalmostcooked. Add the carrots, onion and any other ucgetables have on handand cook until the vegetables are done. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve hot. If you did not skim the fat whtle you were m a h g the soup, you can skim the fat offthe finished soup.'l'he soup will keep up to 2 weeks m the refrigerator or for several months m the frecxcr. Honey-mustard salad dressing

Salad drcss~ngis so easy to make, there's no reason to buy it. This dressing will keep up to a month in the refrigerator. Avoidusingolive oil because it congeals in the refrigerator. Honey-mustard saladdressingisgreat for traditional spinach salad, which consists of spinach,hard-boiledeggs, bacon, red onions and sliced mushrooms. 1-2 tbsp. dijon mustard 1 tbsp. honey 3 tbsp. malt vinegar 1/8 tsp. each salt and pepper 1/2 cup vegetable oil

Combine the mustard, honey, vinegar, salt andpepper. Add the vegetable oil. 'l'aste the salad dressing and add more vinegar if you preâ&#x201A;Źer it tangier,morcvegetable oil if ~ o u w a n t it smoother. You can add minced garlic,onions or fresh herbs, but they will reduce the shelf-life of the dressing to approximately one week.

Trying t o d o t h e right t h i n g

Q. I broke up with a man named "Rick" after dating him for three months. While the relationship wasn'tbad,InowknowthatIstarted dating him because I wanted to be in arelationship,notbecauseIwas genuinely attracted to him. After breaking up, we have remained friends. I love banging out with him, but know that I'd never date him again. Is this unfair?

Q. I'm a firstyear student at Waterloo who is not enjoying the experience. Frosh week was depressing. I felt totally out of touch with the otherstudentsbecause I'm underage and can't go to the bars. Dorm life is also lonely because

there are so many people around butno one to connectwith. Classes are impossible because theprofessors expectns to knowthings that I've never even heard of before. I hate this place and want to leave, but my parents keep telling me to stick it out. How do I convince them to let me come home?

\%en you think of a sporting event here at the University of \Xratcrloo many thmgs come to mind players and fans sporting the lovely blackand ,gold coloursof our schoo1,cheerleaders andof course, UVinsown Warnor band The \Warnor band has been an essentialpart of most athletic events smce a was founded in 1966 It has provided endless support for the Wamor teams by rallyingthefansand by showinggreat school spirit ingeneral. However, the band itself was started for slqhtly less than altruistic reasons. Founded by Dave Greenbergand three friends, the onginalmotivation for starting the band was to grt into the football games for free. In 1968, seasonticketswereofferedby the ath-

letics department for$10.These covered fi17e footballgames, 12basketball games, 14hockcy games and 20 to25 games m other sports such as soccer, rugbyandwrestling.In1966,thepnce would have been even less, but still too mhch for these three young men and thus the band was formed. The band was founded on three basic ideas there would be no designated rehearsal time; m fact, set rehearsals were "officially banned". Howevcr, the band was (and std is) known to meet at 5:30pm on Thursdays to practise. They would not wear any umforms, although the Warrior band was oftenknownto sport the Warrior football sweater tomost events Individual and interestmg hats were also encouraged to be worn by members These days the wearingof hats seems to have fallen by the wayside and the decisionto wear no officialumforms

still holds true. The last rule on which the band was foundedwasthe decision not to march. The \Tarnor band felt that their role was to play music and to

A look at the state of hip-hop


That quote from Ruck 65 is one of the most interesting obsen a tions that I've seen on the subject of hip hop In a way Ruck 65 is completely dead on. Think of a stereotypicalhip hop artist or fan You're probably envisioningbag@ jeans, overpriced shirts and a backwards cap Now, think of your stereotypical hip-hop music You're probably hcamgmisogynistic, materialistic, dumbed down music in your head 011 the &p, you don't often hear of the many great underground crews out there mainly because they don't follow thi5 mould Hip-hop, like any other genre, has its share of the good, the bad and the ugly, but where Buck 65's quote comes into play is in how it challenges the boundanes of the art form Just what is hip hop? And is much of the new music coming out nowadays, especiallythe more experimental stuff, true to the genre's ideals2 I've got split feelings on h s In my mcw, what Ruck 65, Anticon, El-P et a1 are dotng is hip hop At the same tune, one has to look deeper into a quote. O n e of the biggest criticisms of the expenmental underground grouping of hip-hop is that it acts like it's too high and mighty for everyone else There's an obvious ehtist bent to it all Consider Anticon's Music For TheAdwanted Lsfener The album title alone should get my pomt across On top of it all, there exists a racial undertone to the entire issue t h e majority of these expenmeiital artists are white So basicallj,

you've got a subsection of the genre, most of whom are new jack kids who wouldn't know the differencebetween Kakun, Big Daddy Kane and Kool G Rap This dictates how and where the music should evolve Anyone who doesn't believe in this ideal is either a) a stupid commercial head orb) not a true hip-hop head It's a ridiculous concept The reasoning for this reqmrcd 'crolution' is that hip hop is stagnant, that is going to die if left to its own deviccs 11' 1 clue T ou in -a's not going a n p here brankl), I find a lot of the talk a little condescending It's like, 'Don't be afraid1\h e u hite college kids a ~ e here to sa7 e the poor black folks from fuming their art form with \ iolence and b i g o t ~\\'e're l so much smarter than them1 ' It's a load of tnpc and cxtrcmcly reminiscent of the way that the blues and rock and roll were swept out from under the feet of their o r i p a l founders Evolution m music is not something that is dictated It is not something that needs to be taught It happens naturally Just as the e5olution of hip-hop occurrcd from a couple of reggae breaks and toastmg to sample dtlvcn beats and MCtng And I like Buck 65 UJM1. horf~part one.f/iq h q Thm & y ~ caled Thz Rmku~.It ran be heard Thursday nzghtsfrom 6 8p.m
