MP speaks about experiences in Iraq UW gets some insight from two travellers Bashar Al-Husseini SPECIAL TO IMPRINT

Member of Parliament for Kindsor-St. Clair, Joe Comartin, paid avisit to the University of Waterloo on Monday to tell us what he observed duringhis trip to Iraq four weeks ago. IIewas here, alongwith Professor hfohamed Elmasrp of the electrical and computer engineermgprogramat the University of\X'aterloo, to present his view on the evolving conflict between the United States and Iraq. His presentation began with a criticism of the media coverage of the crisis, noting how they had perceived the gap of media coverage between the biasedNorth American outlets and their more objective European counterparts. Among the observations he made while in Iraq was his strong feeling that Iraqi society is unable to cope with further military conflict. The country would be unable to withstand further military force, especially in parallel to years of economic siege and almost daily bombardment from the U.S. and Hritain. Signs of this sentiment were expressed throughout Iraqi society, according t o Comartin. When asked how he responds to those who state that Saddam Hussein must be terminated, despite a few Iraqi "casualties," Comartin explained that the people within Iraq feel that there is no tangible opposition present that could provide credible leadership in a post-Saddam Iraq. Further, he

explained that Iraqis will resist any outside -intervention in their affairs. "The Iraqis are a proud people," he explained saying that they feel they alone would be responsible for a government change. IIe also said that he believes this will create more resentment towards Americans in the future. During his fact-finding mission, he got several responses from ordinary lraqis regarding any future war. However, he found that what was common among them was the shift in responses, usually from an initial indifference towards the inevitable war, then to denial and eventuallya feeling o f 'paralyzing fear." There is also anxiety toward the refugee crisis that would certainly emerge as a result of any such conflict. Growing fears ofurban warfare in Baghdad, a term consistently used by the American media, where a city of eight to ten million people will effectively be used as a fortress and its people as shields, is a prevalent concern for most Iraqis, Comartin explained. H e also painted several disturbing images during his travels. Among them, he describes how he was greeted by several Iraqi school children chanting songs graphically describing how they would sacrifice their blood for their leader. This tookplace during the referendum held t o prolong Saddam's leadership in October. This is where Comartin began to ponder how these same children wouldmost likely become victims, either during a war or during the displacement that is to follow

afterwards. Although the sobering images that he painted were quite depressing, Cornartin's ultimate message was more hopeful. He described how, through activism and knowledge seeking, particularly from alternative unsanctioned media outlets, one can resist American policies effectively. He also described the position of several Canadian par-

Comartin believes that strong Canadian public opinion against a war with Iraq is the only factor maintaining Canada's neutrality. ties on the matter, among them the NDP, which outright rejects any military confrontation, evenwithU.N. approval. H e stated that any war provides a dangerous precedent and is by no mean justificd by international law. H e also stated his disappointment with the current neutral position of the 1,iheral party. Comartin believes that strongcanadianpublic opinion against a war with Iraq is the only factor maintaining Canada's neutrality; otherwise strong Amcricanand Britishpressure

to accept unilateral action against Iraq would be the accepted Canadian policy. Further, Comartin described how he foresaw Canada acting in a leadership role. A role where a "middle power" (like Canada) could motivate and coordinate among several nations in order to resist Amcricanpressure. Currently South Africa has taken this leadership role and Canada must do more to complement the emerging drive of non-aligned countries. "We must move from peace keeping to peacc making," said Comartin. 'l'he MP also expressed that social activism is essential in order to maintain strong public opinion against war and said he felt a peace movement is strengthening on both sides of the border as well as in Europe. November 16 will witness mass rallies throughout Canadian cities andpossiblpother world cities against the war. This is a continuation of a mass movement in recent weeks that saw a 150,000 persons strong demonstration in Britain and several more taking place in Europe, the U.S., Asia, Australia and Mexico in protest of U.S. policies on Iraq. Closer to home the University of Waterloo's Amnesty International is planning an "Crisis: Iraq" event in the Great Hall of the SLC to take place on November 13-14 from 8 a.m. to 3.30p.m. l'his is organizedwith the intent of providing alternative views on the emergingconflict. One of the events that will be happening November 13 is a debate in the Great Hall around 1 2 3 0 p.m.

Challenges of student living

When did it become OK to hate Muslims?

FINDING BALANCE I'he other day, a ICfuslim came up ro me and asked in a whisper, "Is ls~amreally aviolent religmn?'TThat a Muslim would ask thts question shows lust how far the media's bias has penetrated m to the minds of

e\-eryday people. An Al3C News poll from last month rewaled that one-third of Americans hold an unfavourablc npmion of Islam-that is up from one-fifth of Americans who said so (rightafter the tragedy of September 11 Now, at the American border, people from predominantly Muslim countries are fingerprinted and photographed as a "supplementary security measure." 'The fact is, it rcally sucks to be b1usltm right now. \Yith the announcement that the \Y'ashington sniper was Muslim ;actually he was amcmbcr of a Xroup called the Nation of Islam whtch is essentially unrelated to Islam), people are more and more

ready to accept the idea that Islam promotes violence. It has become difficult to sort out the information from the misinformation regarding Islam. I want to tell people that ~f they want to make lud,ments about an deal such as Islam, they should look at I ~ Sroots. Let me go eyer some simple truths about Islam and TvIuslims. The root of Tslani is the lioraneven Tslamic rule and belief has its source in t h ~ ssingle book. If you read the Koran, you would discover that Islam forbids all terrorism. The I<oran forbids fighting c ~ c c pIn t defense or agatnst oppresston. Ltsten, the word "Islam" means "peace" and nothmg ts more important to h,luslms than this ideal. T am not a terrorist and I am not trying to bomb the school. Please believe me. I am not saying that there are no psychopathic people out there who claim to be Muslim. But the idea Of associating Muslims with terrorism is similar to associating Blacks w ~ t h crime. \Then I was askingabout how police in Ontario could be justified in using racial profiling when performing their jobs, an anonymous police academy student

told me that it is reasonable because Blacks commit alarge proportion of crimes in Ontario. That is false logic and most educated people would be quick to realize that. So why aren't Americans so quick to object to the statesponsored racial, religious, and ethnic profiltng used at the Canadian-,4mcrrcati bordcr? On my last co-op term with Research In Motion, my job required me to trat el to America. T went on tsvo trips, once to Orlando and later to San Francisco. It was business travel and, both times, I went with about 70 other co-workers fromKlh1. lnterestmngly, I was the only person in my company who was ever "selected for a random s e a r c h ' a n d I was selected all four tunes I boarded a plane. \T'hJe others whizzed by the ticket booth and onto the plane, T had to stand back as agents sifted through every detail of my luggage in full view of everyone eke on my fltght. At one point, they asked me to remove my hat and belt, lift up my sh~rtand hands and open the top button of my pants'l'hen they told me to "stay silent as me pat \mu down." See SECURITY. page 11

SPECULATIONS Khat seems to haw bccn forgotten in all this reccnt discusston of the fatmess of lodging house bylaws is that students, reall!. and truly, are req-different from average citvens. 1mas reminded of this when reading about the experiences of Thr (Jlobr's Michael Valpy, whomas part of an event by the Daily Bread I'ood Badwhere 15 people were asked to lwc on the equivalentofwelfare for one week. 'l'he esperience seemed to really open hts eyes; he wrote on September 28, "1 now know that orpnic carrots are $1.99 a bunchbut ordinary carrots are only $1.29.I know apples are the only affordable fmruit." \That student doesn't know these thmgs, or that bananas arc even cheaper than apples? In many fundamental ways, students arc different from nonstudents. \Ye pay a fee every four months for the privilege of hard work with lots of unpaid overtime.

We put our lives on hold for four years to invest in our future -how could we not be different? Interested in Valpy's obsen-attons of how difficult it is to live o social assistance (he biked home at lunch timc to drink leftover coffee because the cafeteria at worhwas tc expensive), 1wondered how this situation compares with a student On welfare, someone living wlthout dependants or income an( recetves $195 for basic ex~enses $325 shelter allowance,includ~ng utilities, for a sum of $520 per month. T i 1 comparison, the maxtmum you can receive on OSil as a single student at a publtcl! funded university in Canada is $1,192 per month (note that wry fewpeople actuallyrcccirc the maximum). The average tuition fo a student m a regular program at LJ\Xris S2,656.25per term and the average termly cost of books is $525.

Absence of TV lesbians

UNDEFEATED Does anyone remcmber that episode of "Roseanne" way hack in 1994when Roseanne kissed Munel Ileminpay) I know I do I was m grade ninc and very much aware of my sexuality I remember watching that particuiar moment in my hvmg room, quietly rooting for the two ladies kveryone had lmown that the controversial kiss mould happen In fact, a number of religiou5 extremlst groups had protested the show because of it and AH(, had threatened to pull it from the schedule In retaliation of the th~eats, Roseanne herself had threatened to leave the networh, taking her highly ratcd series with her rhat was all that needed to be said Money is money and on March 1,1994, the episode aired, but not before a sufficient telecast advrsory for parents about adult content was broadcast

One season later, the show's character"Nancy" (played by Sandra Hernhard) came out of the closet, one of television's first full-fledged lesbtm supporting leads Lesbian charactershave hada rock) history in the media Most memorable charactershave come from MadADouf You, E R and of course the infamous Ellen. But can those characters be compared to the e5 er-popular gay male ones) In this respect, one mtght compare Jack from Willand Gra~eto Ellen from the show of the same name Both are hilariously funny, but as I recall no one ever talked about "Fllen" like they do now about 'lack " \Yhy is that? And whv have there ne-;er been anj out-and proud lesbians on Suurrer? And why does Qmer UJ Folh centre on gay men more so than the tsx o recurring lesbian characters; It seems to me that tele~islon and movies focus more. on (or are more succe~sfulwith) ga? male characters as opposed to females I am confused as to why this is Of course I am happy with the media's slow acceptance ofgays and lesbians and its resulting portrayals of them. FTowcvcr, I think that lesbians need to be far more

prominent in the media I wonder if maybe the general public lust finds gay men to be more entertaming than lesbian women Or perhaps television networks and movie producers recognue that a gay male audience would be sta~sticallylarger than a lesbian one 1 mean, surely realitv TV seems to portray those attitudes Gay males on reality shows beat out lesbians hands down, Sunzzot has had three, Bg Brother two, A w a p g Race four, and the Mole one That's ten prominent gay men as compared to zero lesblansl T'm so confusedl This is most defmtely an issue that, I ha\ e to admit, I really don't undcrstand In all of my research m preparing for this art~cle,1ha\ e found no answers and no one that seems to acknowledge thig apparent lackoflesbiancharacters m televi sion and mo\ ies I wonder d I am alone m making these obsen atiom, or if other people ha\e noticed the same problem nith lesbian representation in the media These are a feu questions that I thron at my readers this week and if anyone might have an opinion on the topic, please, feel free to enlighten me acowan@~rnprmtuwaterloo ca

Ontario gets electric shock therapy

,:' MAPS AND LEGENDS Those of YOU not lucky enough to either lme m residence or have one of those "allmclusive" rent deals should expect to be getting somethtng hghly dangerous m the - mail soon, and it's not a fine white powder It's your hydro bill and here's the funpart on average, bills m Ontario are 60per cent higher than theywere h s time last year, except m Toronto This sudden shock to the wallets of ' Ontano comes m the first year of Ontario's newlyderegulatedelectricitymarket r Tlus has come as a great surpnse to Ontario's conservativegovernment, as this was clearly not supposed to happen. In the magicalt~orldof right wing ideology m which

they hve, deregulation and the wonders of the free market make all prices go down not up Conveniently,they ignored the disastrous historyof deregulatedelectncitymarkets (California and Alberta) and assumed rhat the same massive price mcreascs would simply not happen m Ontano In fact, a lot of unexpected things have happened The introduction of competition into the electncity market was supposed to open the flood gates for private mvestors to build new power plants, but exactly zcro power plants are now under construction Furthermore,the average consumer was supposed to be able to choose who would generate their electricity(in theoryallowing them to shop around for the best pnce), instead, a host of shady firms flooded the provmcewith door to door electricitysalesmen trying to sucker people who had never before had to consider what a fair pnce for electncitywas into signing bmdmg long-term contracts. Not content with the chaos that their half baked deregulation scheme caused, the Tones, then under the leadership of Mike I Iarns, also

screwed Ontano over by concludmgquite possibly the worst business deal m the 135year history of the province I refer to the lease of the Bruce nuclear power plant to Bntish Energy PLC The Tories, displaymgtheir famous financial acumen, leased the eight nuclear reactors (worth $7 7 billion) for the sum of $3 1 billion And that's not even the worst part of the deal At the end of the lease, who do you think is on the hook for the estimated $6 8 billton that it will take to de conmussion the plant and store the radioac tive waste?The citwens of Ontario, that's who British Energy, on the other hand, gets to stuff its bags full of our money and hop on the first Concorde back to London. They wdl certainly have no problem affordingthe ticket As you can probably guess, financial viability was not the key goal of this deal Its motivations were purely pohtical Harns desperatelywanted a high-profile firm to enter his newly deregulatedelectncitymarketand wasprepared to offera complete sweetheart deal to make it happen In the end he got his deal and we got expensive radioactive waste

All things bemg equal, we probably shou pap more for electricity As things stand we use it profusely and higher prices mght tend to discourage us from using the oven to ma1 apiece of toast But theTories approached this issue m the worst possible nay Bhnded by their love of "free-market soluttons" they decided that it would be better to blow up Ontario Hydro than to reform it Now, confronted with the rutn of that approach, they are planning to compound the disaster by issuing massive hydro refunds to Ontarians m the hope that voters will forget about this whole electricity thtng during the next election. To sum it up, we are paying more monej for the same amount of electncity,but that's okay because the government is going to pa) us back with our own tax dolfars to make us forget that Bntish Energy andwhoever else got in on the privatization gravy train arc lackmgupelectncity rates towhereverthey please. Oh yes, there also rmght be brown01 next summer. Am't privatization grand?

it's too high; maybe it's too low I would venture to say Mr Schaan would think the latter, but then, he would probably also argue that smce the coming of the pathologcal Mike Harris et al, we've all also been shamefully under-taxed. Actually, I'm not sure what Mr Schaan is even argutngwithI already agreed that "society benefits." We're lust at odds about how much and, subsequently,what this should translate mto in terms of tax dollars for universities. Most of the rest of Mr Schaan's response is of a predictable theme. the state as a guarantor of freedom and equahty for all Not lust by making sure we don't lull each other, mind you, but with all sorts of extensive meddlmg m our hves from cradle to grave By speaking of "empowenng ourselves" using the levers of the state,Mr Schaanpullsa classic linguistic sleight of hand Whom are we empowering? Indtviduals Where did the money come from? Society Read othermdividuals, through the roercit e act of taxation Robbing Peter to pay Paul freedom and equality in actton He goes on to cite a Kawls (shudder) quote explaining how "voluntary" relations aren't fair Fancy that I want to buy X, you want to sell X, and we make a deal Yep that sounds

pretty unfair. Better to force people to buy and sell things at pnces approved by the Mlnistry of Fairness Now that? fair. The true irony, though, is Mr Schaan's invocation of mdtvidual freedom and maintenance of a free market system as reasons why the state should pay our bills fc us The "constramed" hberty and "managec free market systems he envisionsare such contradictions m terms that a scholar of his stature should easily discard them as mtellec tually dishonest and philosophically inconsic ent Contrary to his claims, I'm not presentm a false dialectic at all Deregulation is about tl m e d i a t e future of our umversity and the realchoicewe face Barring massive injections from the priva sector, deregulated tuition is the only way to ensure continued world-class quahty of education at Waterloo We can lurch along t same hazardous path as our crumbling heal care system, or we can finally abandon the unsustamablecharade of universality in favo of being the best university on the planet Prattle on about being accessible, or be the best We will soon have to choose \Y"nich will you pick>

This initiativeappears to be part of a r e f r e s h trend at I q n n t t o include news stones and features on campus eventsbefore they occur. Indeed, this is beneficial for all involved.Students will have greater information about campus events, allowing more to be involved Unfortunately the absence of a fol low-upaficle in the November 1issue was disappointing. Close to 300 students attended the debate and many others told us -while we distributing flyers m the SLC - that they would have liked to attend but could not.

A w h a n - s i ~ battery e is stuffec with E.coli that breaks down carbohy drates, releasmg hydrogen atoms Other chemcals inside the cell dnm redox and oxidation reactmns which stnp electrons from the hydrogen sending them to the fuel cell anode creatingavoltage These battenes canpowera4Owatt light bulb for e~ght hours on 50 grams of sugar Carrots are next on the hsl of potential power sources. Previous mcrobacteiral fuel cells were mcfficient because theyused energy-guzzling pumps and filters in stead of dumping the bactena and chenucalsdirectlyintothe battery This battery produces eight times more power and Melhwsh is s t 4 looking for Improvements. Eat your bread crust!

Researchers at the Umversity of Munsterm Germanyhave discovered that the crusts of bread may provide more health benefits than the rest of the bread. The research statesthatthe cancerfightmgpotentd of htgh-fiberbread is found mostly m the crust. Baktng produces a novel type of antioxidant, pronyl-lysme, which is eight tunes more abundant m the crust thanin the dough The anttomdantwas found m both yeast and yeast free bread, but it was not present m the original flour This anti-oxidant 19 likely to be more abundant in darker breads and in broken pieces of bread which have more surfacearea for the reactions to happen. Burnmgthe bread, however, reduces the amount of antioxidant.

Creating an imaginative dreamworld Imprint reviews Theatre and Company's newes t production Red Lips Connie Gault Theatreandcompany October31 -November16

Celeste Dickson SPECIAL TO IMPRINT

Imagine thts you find yourself sitting in a handmmely-designedtheatre on G n g Street in downtown Iatchener, embarkmg on a journcy through a middle-aged woman's m a p a t i o n 'That dream can become a reality at Theatre and Company's second play this season, RedLp,wntten by Connie Gault This play b e p s m a museum somcwhere m Europe, where three women onvacation explore the museum's aittfacts. SomethIngisawakened ifi one of the three women and she deslres to have a history of her own. And so the play takes off. ~ e s p i ttheincomprehensibleand e often fragmentedplotline of thtsplay, the cast at Theatre and Company did a superb lob of b r e a h g-h f e mto the script. The secondary characters dida mapficent job of proving to the audience the common fact that there are no smallparts, only smallactorsthankfully there were no small actors at t h ~ sshow Melissa Haller, Elise Bauman and Madeleme Donohue, whoare allnewcomers to Theatre and Company, all gave'stellarperformancesandcaptured the audience's m a p a t i o n . Haller,

playmgJame's friend Sarah, as well as the streetperson Norma, d d a fantas tic jobofswitch~ngfromone character tothe next and from one accent to the ncxt Hauman, playing the part of the httlegir1,htup the stage and proved to have apromisingcarccrin show business hnally, the bulk of Donohue's workwascrossingfromone sideofthe stage to another and looking mystenouslyat Kathleen Sheehy's character's Jame But it was not difficult to becomemtrpcd bpthts character '&ken she was fmally able to speak in the second act, it was obviouq that Donohue has more than lust a commanding stage presence

"Red Lips is an enjoyable yet directionless experience." Complementing the highly magi nattve and dreamhke script, Dennis Horn's stagc design is a work of art This stage is not only pleasing to look at and is able to capture the audicncc, but it is also highly functlond Wtth a script that jumps around from one locale and image to the next, the multi lev~ledandmulti-facetedset served to reduce thenumberofvcksetchafiges In addition to this, the set is bor-

dered by audtence on all four sides somethngrarely triedm the theatre world But Horn did a superb job creating this set to be as func tional as possible Director Stuart Scadron-Wattlec also commanded his cast beautifully,ensuringthat all four sides of the audiencegot equal exposure to the action \&i'tha script that at times seemed disjointed, directionless and random, the hghtmg did not serve its ultimate purpose of umting the en tire production Lighting cucs at times seemed forced and appeared simply for the sake of bemg there However, designer Andrew Lakm can be credited with an efficient method of using the lightmg to sugest a change m location, or to direct the audience's attention to another part of the playful set Theatre and Company'sproduc tion ofConnie Gault's two actplay I(edLp~is an enjoyable yet some tunes directionlessexperience The cast and crew did a noteworthy job of domg thts script justice, but Broadway does not have to lookout or make way for this production

The actors give the script justice in Red Lips.
