formal fridays #uwindsorproblems

When stately attire in the work place has become of the past, perhaps there should there be a “Formal Friday.”

Oct. 2

g

It wasn’t long ago that the suit and tie were part of everyday wear in the office. Today however, unless you’re a lawyer or a family doctor, you’d be hard pressed to find the well dressed other than at the occasional wedding or funeral.

tweet your #uwindsorproblems and #uwindsorsolutions @uwindsorlance

Maybe part of the reason is that, because there are more service jobs than in times past, the sharp and tact have traded their fine jackets for name tags on glorified polo shirts, often with funny looking hats. Although, considering that, waiters and waitresses don’t seem to have that air of formality that they used to either, unless it is upscale dinning. Even then, these people are occasionally dressed in t-shirts and black pants that are suspiciously not dress.

It is without a doubt that in the last 10 to 13 years formal clothes have become anachronistic relics of a time gone by. These days, if one were to conduct one’s daily business in Sunday’s Best, most would invariably  think  something  was wrong. It is indeed a little sad and disheartening when someone asks, “What’s the occasion?” at the sight of a button-down and wingtips. Seeing people in branded shirts looking like walking billboards is tiring and without dignity. Just watch Mad Men. Now those people get it. A sharp look commands respect, or at least it did before it began commanding odd stares. Informality in general is the way the of the 21st century, so maybe we should have one day a week where we wear our finest and introduce ourselves as mister, miss or misses to remember that dignity is something sorely lacking from this generation.

Then again, maybe this great shift gives the slicker-proper more of an edge. Sept. 28

open letter from uwsa president: strike at the university of windsor These questions have run through my mind every day, on repeat, since the strike was announced on September 8 by CUPE 1393. Some people blame the University, while others blame the Union. But the question remains: What does this all mean for students? Students are caught in the middle while the education they pay thousands of dollars for is used as a pawn in an elaborate game. I think there’s blame to go around for everyone and to look at these issues as simply black and white ignores the reality of the situation. Due to labour laws, it’s nearly impossible for students to get a wellinformed opinion of what the issues on the table regarding the strike really are and the true affect they may have. All students’ have to rely on is the empty rhetoric spewed by both parties. What can we do to resolve the strike? Unfortunately, there is no clear answer to that question, but there are several steps you can take to make your own informed opinion. Those steps include: questioning leadership, demanding accountability, and recognizing where the real problem lies. The first step is to begin questioning leadership. Question the administration. Ask them why they left the bargaining table. What are they doing to protect student jobs at the University? How do they plan to reimburse students for their lost services? How will this affect your courses if the strike persists? Question the unions. Ask them why they felt the need to strike. Why did they wait until September to strike when their contract was up in March? Do they have grounds to make claims about out-sourcing of jobs? Are professors abusing the right not to cross the picket line? There’s an endless list of tough questions for both sides that do not have answers. Most importantly, look past the rhetoric, and form your own opinion. I’m not here to tell you how to think, but only to get you thinking about your rights as a member of the UWSA. The second step is to demand accountability. Your tuition pays 54.2% of the operating budget at this University. Meanwhile, students’ interests seem to have become secondary. As the majority investors of this institution you deserve an equal say in how that money is spent. Recognizing the importance and influence you have in this institution is paramount. Everyone is battling for student’s support,

but where is the support for students? Are our needs truly being met and addressed? It’s time we demand refunds for lost services and demand job security for students with increased employment opportunities. The third step is to recognize where the real problem lies. The real problem isn’t unions nor is the problem university administration. The problem is that everyone is fighting over the same dollar. Every year, tuition fees go up, and government funding goes down. This trend only continues to persist under the government’s current framework. Every year, your government funds less of your education while you fund more. Since when did education become a commodity? I personally would argue post-secondary education is a public good for society designed to teach people to critically engage with the world around them. Nonetheless, if we are going to follow that logic, if the commodity we are paying for is education, clearly it is something of value if we are willing to put ourselves in enormous debt simply to obtain it. Why doesn’t the government value education so highly when it is clear people do? In closing, this is a classic dilemma of balancing longterm needs with short-term goals. Seek what is best for students, workers, and the future of this institution. It’s important to be proud of where you came from. I know times like these give students a negative perception of their school, and perception is everything. Get active, get involved, and take your school back. As the majority investors of this institution, we have that responsibility. I promise, if you get active and begin to shape the future of this institution, that negative perception will change. Make your degree something to be proud of. “Education should not be the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” - William Butler Yeats Yours Truly, Rob Crawford UWSA President

We’re trying to right some wrongs that we’ve done and honour the agreement we have with the Lance. ROBCRAWFORD, UWSA PRESIDENT

The Lance is saved! JAYVERSPEELT news editor __________________________

The University of Windsor Student Alliance in addition with University of Windsor President Alan Wildeman has chosen to assume the Lance’s outstanding debts through an advertising deal. On Thursday evening UWSA president Rob Crawford presented a plan that he and Lance deficit reduction consultant Jon Liedtke created jointly which sought to eliminating the $15,266 deficit owed.

“We’re here today trying to rectify the relationship between the UWSA and the Lance,” said Crawford. “We’re trying to right some wrongs that we’ve done and honour the agreement we have with the Lance.” Crawford stated through his proposal that the UWSA interfered with the editorial content of the paper when the publication was shut down further leading to a $47,000 deficit. Since the new production year has begun the Lance has collected on roughly $17,000.

for paying $5088 annually for three years.

The USWA was presented with two other options, paying out the deficit in one year at $15,266 or two years at $7,633. As the Lance collects on outstanding debts the amount paid out by the two may decrease. “Yes the Lance did fall into a deficit that’s well known,” said Liedtke. “The reason for that isn’t solely on the Lance, our national advertising agent [Campus Plus] went bankrupt. That happens in business, we weren’t a secured creditor.”

proximately an hour and went in camera for half of that in which “whereas” clauses were debated. “Would it be smart for us to include that we broke an agreement with the Lance in the motion?” asked senate executive Hussein Zarif. “It’s a matter of fact,” said Crawford.

The issues to the paper’s financial state have now been resolved. “Sincere thanks must be extended to the UWSA Board of Directors, UWSA president Rob Crawford and University of Windsor president Dr. Wildeman for absorbing the deficit and allowing for the Lance to return to a positive fiscal state,” said Liedtke.

The issue was debated for ap-

Conservatives rally around Hudak, AND HOW LIBERALS AND PROGRESSIVE CONSERVATIVES HAVE TEAMED UP AT THE LAST MINUTE TRAVISFAUTEUX news editor __________________________

Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak appears to be bouncing back after receiving attacks from fellow conservative MPPs and risking the possibility of yet another leadership review. After much criticism for failing to earn more than a fifth of the by-elections that occurred on August 1, there was a major vote of confidence in Hudak at the PC party’s 2013 Policy Convention, which ended last week in London. The overwhelming majority of the 900 delegates at the convention voted down a motion to amend the constitution, which would have allowed for a leadership review. Paul Synnott, local Progressive Conservative supporter, past Tory campaigner, and current co-host of CJAM’s Rose City Politics program, said that although he did not push for a leadership review himself, he did support those that tried to put the amendment forward.

“They submitted a perfectly legitimate resolution to amend the constitution,” said Synnott. “What pissed me off was the push back against it.”

“His team started firing back at these members right away claiming they were undermining Tim’s leadership,” explained Synnott. “And then, Tim did essentially the same thing when he came back [from vacation] and, what I found strange, is that they made it worse – far worse than it ever needed to be.” Ten conservatives signed the initial motion that was shot down at the convention. The motion was a result of tension amongst party members who felt unsatisfied by the August 1 by-election results. If the motion had carried it would have been the second leadership review during Hudak’s tenure, the first being held immediately following the 2011 election—the result being 78% in support of Hudak’s. Although managing to win a seat in the Etobicoke—Lakeshore electoral district of the Greater Toronto Area, a feat that hasn’t been accomplished by the conservatives in that riding for

14 years since the Mike Harris era, Hudak and his conservatives lost to the Liberal party in Scarborough-Guildwood and Ottawa South and to the NDP party in London West and our local riding of Windsor—Tecumseh. Hudak dismissed efforts to conduct a leadership review saying, “We had a choice as a party to come together and show that bold Conservative plan that’s going to get Ontario moving again. If others choose not to do that choice, then that’s their choice. I’m here to lead.” At the convention, Hudak audaciously predicted the date of the next Ontario election. “It’s November 12,” he stated. “Politics are a bit like pro wrestling. We actually all know the end result, we just go through the motions in between.” However, Synnott sees things going in a very different direction for provincial politics. “The only way there’s going to be an election is if the NDP decides to vote and right now there is no indication that the NDP is going to break down the government,” said Synnott. The latest opinion poll by Aba-

If there is absolutely no possibility for collaboration, then the legislature will grind to a halt, and the opposition will have made it clear that they want a general election. KATHLEENWYNNE, PREMIER OF ONTARIO

cus Date shows that the Tories are leading with 33% and the Liberals have declined in public opinion since May, sliding down four points to the second position at 30%. Since February, only one bill has been passed in Ontario—the 2013 budget—but that could change very, very quickly if everything goes according to the Liberals’ plan. Hudak’s Tories have agreed to team up with Wynne’s governing Liberals to fast-track eight bills between now and December, which could potentially ruin Hudak’s prediction of an election next month.

In early September, Wynne threatened the Tories with an election if they did not agree to help the Liberals push the bills through the legislature. “If there is absolutely no possibility for collaboration, then the legislature will grind to a halt, and the opposition will have made it clear that they want a general election,” said Wynne before the deal with the PC party was made. “I hope that doesn’t happen . . . my first choice is to make the minority parliament work.” Synnott said that he thinks an election is unlikely in the near future because of the agreement between the two parties. “[Wynne] said that she threatened an election because the legislative agenda was being held up,” explained Synnott.

“So, if [Hudak] was expecting and wanting an election, then why make an agreement to fast track five pieces of legislation through the house?” One bill put forward by the Liberals would make it illegal to provide tanning services to people under the age of 18 while a conservative-led bill would allow EllisDon, the Mississaugabased construction company that built the Rogers Centre, to employ non-unionized workers. “Wynne’s not going to force an election because now she has five or six bills that are going to be able to get through the house to show that they’re doing something, and the NDP, I don’t see them pulling the trigger right now, ” said Synnott. The next big hurdle for the Progressive Conservatives will be the looming by-election in Niagara Falls that has been caused by the resignation of thrice reelected Liberal MPP Kim Craitor. In the 2011 election, Craitor won the seat by only 1.19% meaning the Tories may have a tangible opportunity to gain support by the spring. “If [the PCs] win the seat, then they will certainly be wanting to go for a general election in April,” said Synnott. “They’ll be coming off a high, but if they lose that by-election, then the knives come out again.”

Local celebrities deliver meals on wheels TRAVISFAUTEUX news editor __________________________ Windsor seniors were greeted by local celebrities bearing warm meals this week during the annual “Celebrity Serve” event put on by the Victorian Order of Nurses’ (VON) Meals on Wheels program. Between September 30 and October 4, Meals on Wheels Week, CTV News anchor Jim Crichton, Windsor Spitfires players, and councillor Ed Sleiman all participated in the event by bringing meals to the residences of the elderly, disabled, and those recovery from an illness or surgery. “Our goal is to raise community awareness about the services that we offer and to get community involvement,” said Kim Panazzola, a Meals on Wheels customer service representative. “Some [celebrities] don’t realize that you might be the only person that some people see in the day.” Throughout the year, meals are prepared by Chef Robert Catherine, who teaches students how to cook at the new

Meals on Wheels kitchen at the Unemployed Help Centre on Cantelon Drive. Monday to Friday, meals are delivered by volunteers between 11:00 a.m. to 1:00p.m. people who are no longer able to prepare healthy meals for themselves. Frozen meals are also available for those who need their meals prepared on the weekend. “We have different meals all the time. It comes with protein, starch, vegetable, soup, bread, and a desert,” said Panazzola. “And, it’s only $6.25 per meal.” The VON is celebrating its 86th year with the event this week and Panazzola said that the Meals on Wheels program has been a huge success in Windsor and a great service to the community. “We’ve been able to keep people in their homes longer,” said Panazzola. “It allows people to age at home. For a lot of people, once they can’t cook anymore, they would have to look into an alternative to living at home.”

Wristbands are for sale at the bookstore for $5 with proceeds going to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation • photo by Travis Fauteux

Bands for breast cancer highlight awareness month MAGGIECHAN lance reporter __________________________ A University of Windsor student has taken it upon himself to commemorate the University of Windsor 50th anniversary and raise funds for breast cancer research during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Aaron Lewicki, a second-year student in the Faculty of Law, has produced limited edition bands celebrating the anniversary and donating proceeds to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF). The navy blue bands are $5 each and feature the university’s new logo and golden text celebrating this year’s milestone. They can be purchased at either the main University of Windsor bookstore or at the merchandise kiosk in the CAW Centre. Lewicki said that the idea for his fundraiser began last year when

he was looking for university merchandise to give as Christmas gifts. “I asked the bookstore clerk about silicone rubber bands, similar to the ones we had at UWaterloo where I completed my undergrad, and they responded that these were not available for sale,” he explained. “I decided I would bring these bands to UWindsor myself.” Lewicki said that the bands were a great success at the University of Waterloo, where they were sold as part of a fundraising initiative for the varsity teams. Although his involvement was limited in Waterloo, Lewicki said that he was well aware that the bands made for a great fundraiser. His choice to donate his funds to the CBCF was inspired by an experience he had with cancer in his family. Lewicki said his mother has always been a huge supporter of

the organization and has been involved in many other “Think Pink” campaigns because her mother—and his grandmother—passed away after battling breast cancer. “I decided right then and there that I would sell these bands with proceeds going to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation [the Ontario chapter],” he said. “Selecting the CBCF was an easy decision.” Judy Lund, manager of the Essex County branch of the Canadian Cancer Society, praised Lewicki’s efforts to raise money and awareness for such a cause. “Raising awareness is always a good idea,” she said. October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and according to Lund breast cancer remains the most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second most common cause of cancer deaths in Canadian women. The CBCF estimates that about

23,800 women and 200 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013. “The most important thing with bringing awareness to this is being aware of your body,” Lund advises. “When you take a shower, know what’s normal and be aware of what might be an issue. It is crucial to be proactive in this.” Lund says that the Canadian Cancer Society currently has regular campaigns in place bringing awareness to the public, in the form of presentations by nursing students and the “Women to Women” campaign, which focuses on women ambassadors speaking to other women about mammograms. However, the month of October will mark many other events happening in the Windsor-Essex area. The “Taking Steps Against Breast Cancer” walk and 5K run at Point Pelee National Park will

be held on October 20. Additionally, Caesars Windsor has agreed to host “Concerts for a Cure” where $1 from every ticket sold in any of the casino’s October concert events will be going to the Canadian Cancer Society. Lund also recommended attending the Cancer Society’s 5K Obstacle Mud Run at Sprucewood Winery on October 26 that will be raising funds for local transportation programs and pediatric cancer research. “October may be Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but there are other cancers that also need awareness,” she said. Lewicki expressed similar sentiments, noting that the most important part of his charity work would be the chance to heighten overall cancer awareness, saying, “I feel confident that my contribution will help reach many others in need.”

Alan Wildeman sits with sit-in • photo by Jay Verspeelt

Strike: how students call the shots

PLUS AN UPDATE ON COLLECTIVE BARGAINING BETWEEN CUPE 1393 & THE UNIVERSITY JAYVERSPEELT lance reporter & TRAVISFAUTEUX news editor __________________________ After four weeks of the ongoing CUPE 1393 strike, demands are on the table but this time they’re coming from students. Travis Reitsma, a University of Windsor Graduate student of Sociology, has started a sit-in outside of University of Windsor president Alan Wildeman’s office on the fifth floor of Chrysler Hall Tower. The a pro-union protest to end the strike will go on during business hours everyday until the strike ends, with the possibility of becoming 24hour occupation next week. “I’ve had classes cancelled, I’ve had seminars that I’ve missed because I’ve refused to cross the [picket] line and because one of my classes is being run online and technology problems have been very vast,” said Reitsma. Reitsma, who is also a member of CUPE 4580 ‒ the union representing GAs and TAs ‒ believes that University administration has been stepping on labour for years and he says that every union on campus has had a strike mandate since Wildeman became president. The sit-in has three demands that the protesters want to see met before they vacate the office. They want all “bad faith” bargaining to be stopped, such as, “bargaining through the media” and sending out slanted PR to students. They are requesting that the university negotiate a resolution without giving ultimatums to the union. Their last demand: a tentative agreement.

Reitsma said he would like to see cuts from the top. He said the university has been cutting benefits and raising tuition but he hasn’t seen the top brass affected yet. “They’re saving money not paying these workers for three weeks now,” said Reitsma. “These are professional staff, they get decent money.” Everyone, pro union, antiunion or those who are just upset about the inconveniences the strike has caused has been invited to take part in the sit-in. Just after 1:00 p.m. of day one, Reitsma said about 10 people had cycled through with about three or four constant protesters. Although the UWSA staged its own non-partisan rally the day after the sit-in began, Omar Shahid, VP finance and operations, joined the occupation in the office lobby showing his personal support. “I am not a UWSA member today,” said Shahid. “I am on vacation.” At around 4:00 p.m., after being told Wildeman was unavailable or out of the office, the president himself sat down with the group for a half hour discussion. “Them [CUPE 1001] going out with a message saying ‘haven’t received a raise in six years,’ that is a lie,” said Wildeman. “That is a total lie and I can show you the collective agreements, they’re publicly available.” Wildeman went on to tell the group that the university’s proposal could strengthen the job security of employees because “the best way to increase job security is to lower the escalation of the costs that are going up.” Wildeman addressed Reitsma’s

concerns that higher level employees have not bared the brunt of cuts, saying he had removed two vice presidents but did not specify who or from where. Refunds for the tuition lost to students during the strike are not likely, according to Wildeman, because it would cost more to process than it is worth and no courses have been canceled by the university. “The whole university is being held hostage right now because you guys [University of Windsor administration] want to take away CUPE’s job security,” said Student Worker Alliance spokesperson Brent Taylor, who attended the sit-in. “That’s the way that everyone on this campus sees it that’s not in this tower.” Wildeman countered Taylor’s assessment by saying that no one is being asked to take a pay cut. However, he also said the university can’t afford a system that owes a million dollars in back pay. “Doing the right thing means getting control of the cost escalation,” said Wildeman. Next year the campus has to cut 4.8 million dollars out of the budget. “We have an austerity policy at our university is what you’re saying,” said Taylor. “Well we have to, we haven’t got any more money,” said Wildeman. STRIKE UPDATE: Since September 8, four different union locals on campus have been confronted with the possibility of a strike, but only CUPE 1393 has had to walk the picket lines for almost a month

now.

curring before our team did.”

It took the university and the union two weeks of striking to return to the bargaining table, but talks broke down Saturday spurring renewed frustration about the strike amongst students, faculty, union members, and administration alike.

The Monday before talks broke off, Wildeman stated that the two central issues at the bargaining table are the job evaluation process and bumping.

At a student rally held this Tuesday in front of Chrysler Hall Tower, UWSA president Rob Crawford made a speech urging students to let their voices be heard. “Your tuition fees pays 54.2% of the operating budget, remember that. You are the majority investors. This is your school,” said Crawford. “And as such ... we have a certain level of responsibility and right now it’s our responsibility to take action and to say we’ve had enough.” Although administration released a bulletin saying they were “ready to remain to the bargaining table at any time,” CUPE 1393 president Dean Roy said that the university is responsible for ending the talks. According to a press release by the union, the two groups were set to meet on the Saturday morning, after CUPE 1393 made a proposal the previous evening. However, the mediator told the union local shortly before the meeting was set to take place that, “The employer would not return to the bargaining table.” University administration tells the story differently, however. During Tuesday’s rally, Crawford also read a letter from Wildeman, which said, “The University in fact did not walk away from the bargaining table. CUPE’s bargaining team left the hotel where bargaining was oc-

“Over the past three years alone, of 61 CUPE 1393 jobs re-evaluated, the average pay increase following re-evaluation has been $10, 790, an average of 17.3%. This has created a permanent base budget increase of $561,064 per year,” reads the statement. Wildeman continued on to say that, “The fiscal challenges faced by our university are not a myth. My last update addresses very significant continuing challenges for our operating budget, including a projected $4.8 million shortfall for 2014/2015.” For the moment, both parties say that they are prepared to go back to the bargaining table at any time, but there has been no word of actually continuing talks. “I don’t even know what to say,” said CUPE 1393 president Dean Roy. “We’ve had the mediator contact them and she’s contacting them every day and what they’re saying is that they’re not going back to the table until we’re willing to accept all their demands and that’s not bargaining.” “The students need to realize they have the power,” said Roy. “I understand they’re not necessarily siding with us and I don’t expect them to. All they want is an end to the strike and that’s perfect. It’s just that Dr. Wildeman has to realize he can’t just sit up there and issue orders plain and simple.”

WINDSOR’S EXPOSURE III ART & FASHION EXHIBITION

• photos by Sandee Nho

ALEXANDRASELLICK arts editor __________________________ On September 26 The Victorian Order of Nurses held their Third Annual Exposure Art and Fashion Exhibition at the Overseas Motors Mercedes-Benz showroom. The fashion show featured styles and designs from local boutiques and designers such as Clothing Bar, Ana Stulic, Elaine Chatwood, BVogue, At Ease Men’s Apparel and Penny Jane Vintage. The classic Mercedes-Benz vehicles added to the glamour of the night as the models showcased the latest fall fashions.

Dalia Mazhar is a communications major at the University of Windsor and as part of her Practicum she planned the Exposure III Fashion Show this year. “Rafih doubled what we raised so the overall idea wasn’t just for fashion,” said Mazhar. “It was to expose Windsor designers and Windsor artists and to raise money for a really good organization.” Elaine Chatwood is a local designer and owner of Chatty Collection, a women’s clothing boutique located on Ottawa Street. Many of the labels featured in the Exposure Fashion show were from her store. Some of the labels she carries include Montreal designers Papillion Blanc and Frank Lyman.

Chatwood has been a designer for over 20 years and has recently begun instructing illustration and textile at St. Clair College’s fashion design program. “This season I took a little break from designing,” said Chatwood. “But normally I do design. Usually 50 per cent of my store is my own clothing line.” The Victorian Order of Nurses puts on many health care related programs throughout the city such as Meals On Wheels and athome nursing. The event raised $5,000 and the Rafih Automotive Group said they would double what was earned.

December 18, 2015. That’s the date that the upcoming Warcraft movie is supposed to come out. The movie is set in the same universe as Blizzard’s highly addictive and life-ruining game, World of Warcraft (refer to the South Park episode featuring it if you’re unsure what it’s all about). This will have to compete in the already beefy movie year featuring the next Star Wars, Avengers and Superman/Batman flicks.

The great writer of thrilling military novels, movies and videogames has died this week at the age of 66. Remember the Hunt for Red October? Amazing book and movie. And all those videogames this generation grew up with: Ghost Recon, Rainbox Six, Splinter Cell, the list goes on.

Windsor arts scene hits it big this Fall JAMES OL’S ALBUM AND WINDSOR SHIFT CHANGE FILM LAUNCHING OCTOBER 10

Fall is an exciting time for the arts community in Windsor. The city becomes host to two major music festivals, Phog Phest and Harvesting The FAM Festival. One of FAM’s most anticipated events is the release party of James OL’s latest album ‘For The World Is Hollow And I Have Touched The Sky’ which will double as the premier of local filmmaker Eric Boucher’s film Windsor Shift Change on October 10. The event is hosted by The FAM Festival and Phog Lounge and will be held in the Capitol Theatre, which was recently used as the venue for the largest Phog Phest to date. James OL has been a key act in the Windsor music scene along with a group of musicians he plays with regularly called The Villains. As well as ‘For The World Is Hollow And I Have Touched The Sky’, James OL and The Villains have recently recorded an album together that will be released in the spring. This is the third solo album for James

OL, preceded by ‘The Invisible Album’ and ‘This Machine Ills’. What is different about the new album is that it was written while James OL was travelling through Central America. One song was written before his journey, three while on his trip and one when he returned to Windsor. While he feels that every local band should tour play venues outside of Windsor, he believes that Windsor is a good place for musicians to get their footing.

“I think it’s important for bands to get as many fans as they can in their own hometown,” said James OL. “People should definitely focus on getting exposed in their own area.” Eric Boucher, a Windsor film production grad, has just completed his first feature documentary, Windsor Shift Change. The documentary focuses on the city’s art community and the shift in culture that is occurring. He made the film after being inspired by artists he has collaborated with in Windsor and believed it was time to focus on the positive changes that are being made in the city. “I feel like I should have made this film two years ago,” said Boucher. “Even when I was making it there were things always coming up in the news on CBC

about how there are more arts things going on and more funding for arts.” While he wishes that the film was finished earlier, there are still a lot of big things happening in the arts community such as Phog Phest and FAM Fest.

As on one of the highlights of FAM Fest this year, the releases of Boucher and James OL’s latest works are sure to shed light on what people in Windsor’s thriving arts community are doing and how hard they are working for it.

“It could change the perception of things,” Boucher stated. “Different people have different opinions about the arts community and some people don’t really know that there is one.”

Tickets to the James OL Album Release Party and the Windsor Shift Change Premiere are $12.00 in advance and $15.00 at the door and can be purchased at Phog Lounge, Dr. Disc and Ah Some Records.

ALBUM REVIEWS ALEXANDRASELLICK arts editor __________________________

w/JASONRANKIN

COALITION KIM WEMPE Kim Wempe’s Coalition begins with a soul infused intro that is reminiscent of the late Janis Joplin. The album was released in early September and Wempe is set to begin a tour on October 6. The album is a mixture of blues and country and Wempe does not only channel Joplin, many of the tracks feature vocals and lyrics as fervent as Amy Winehouse on her earlier works. The rhythm featured throughout the album is blues but the beat and lyrics are more country and western mixed with pop. The album is upbeat and at times as mainstream as Kelly Clarkson. Go Back is a foot-stomping track that leads into Never Promised You Nothing which sounds like a more grown up and an even more scorned Taylor Swift. Down Here brings a blues and pop beat and is a light and fun song that could be featured in a romantic comedy. Love Likes Simple is a sappy love ballad that could be played around a campfire. The River is another foot tapping, hand clapping classic country song followed by Come Home, a track the evokes Shania Twain and Carrie Underwood. The rest of the album is packed with country guitar chords and rustic lyrics. When I Stop takes you to somewhere in the soulful south and Restless Soul is very stirring. The Devil Won’t Know Me is heavy on the blues but the album ends on lighter tones with Gaspereaux Lake and The Cost. Both which have light and airy guitar chords. The album is re-mindful of Wempe’s upbringing in a small Saskatchewan farming town. Coalition is a compilation of songs for both country and blues fans. Maybe even pop fans as well. It will have you line dancing and sentimental about simpler times.

PICKETING THE PRESIDENT’S HOUSE On September 26, CUPE 1393 picketed UWindsor President Alan Wildeman’s house. But they stopped. Tuesday night (October 1), a group of students—including some members of the UWSA—decided to picket his house. The police were called to break it up. There are boundaries when it comes to protesting. Somebody has a right to privacy just as much as another person has a right to protest. Sure, the house was paid for by taxpayers and university students. But that is his home and he still does pay taxes on it. How would you feel if people were stomping on your lawn and picketing your house at night? Safe?

SAID THE WHALE HAWAII

Said The Whale is a fiction, a myth, they do not exist, your ears have been lying to you. It is the only possible answer for the impossible fact that this act seems cunningly incapable of putting out bad material. Hawaii is the newest release by Said The Whale and it is the perfect extension of Little Mountain. Once again the band crafted another indie-pop masterwork with the precision of a watchmaker as the music ticks on in perfect time with Spencer Schoening’s thudding kick. The band has kept to the same formula of producing pop rock since 2007, don’t expect any changes. Most of their catalog could be considered interchangeable, if one listened to their music on shuffle, scarce would it be to guess what song came from which album. This is not a bad thing, they have stuck to a style that sounds beautiful and explosive. They are one of the most optimistic sounding bands in the country, if not the world. (Excluding Bollywood.) The only sad thing about this album is its closing track Weight Of The Season, a new version of a song that appeared on their 2009 West Coast Christmas EP. It is somber and soft with all the grace and heartache of Leonard Cohen. The album starts out slow with contended piano strings on More Than This and it builds into the driving Mother with head bobbing ferocity by the with beginning of the first chorus. There is a worldly quality to this album, as most of their work. If you aren’t traveling to it, and you ought to be, the imagination swims with visions of passing towns, cities, prairies and the Rockies. Resolution is a small sort-of departure from the bands usual style, featuring tweaked vocal echoes, very light DJing and London rapper Shad performing at the end. Willow is the classic rock tinged track that could be brother to My Government Heart, it is hard not to imagine go-go dancers during certain parts. Get lost in this record, forget your existence, it will beguile the senses with every crescendo-ing note that transfers from the ears to the heart.

home Canadian sweater a fashion faux pas? workout remedies MIKESPECHT sports editor __________________________

MIKESPECHT sports editor __________________________ As the Forge Fitness Centre closing enters its fourth week, students are looking elsewhere for their workout fix. The key for many to not pack back on that “freshman 15” has been simple: improvise. “I have been going to the river a lot in the morning,” said nursing student Dan Herneshuhta. “I usually run a 5K from the Westside to downtown and stop at the playground near Ouellette. The monkey bars are great for chin-ups.” With many students without the financial means to purchase a second gym membership working out around the home is another popular option. “At this point all you can really do is body weight stuff,” said gym buff Phil Ramus. “I have been doing a lot of push-ups, sit-ups and wallsits in between studying. Even though you can’t target all areas evenly, it is important to keep at it so you don’t lose any progress.” Another key for students has been a balanced diet. With no access to a regular workout routine eating healthy becomes far more important. “You have to eat well if you’re not exercising,” said Herneshuhta. “If you are regularly lifting, it is ok to cheat because your metabolism is working at its peak. But once you stop it begins to slow down and the late night McDonalds runs will begin to take their toll.” Dipping October temperatures and an increased workload, will make improvisation more of a nuisance than a cute antic dote for the legion of exam-stressed students. As labour talks hit yet another snag, there appears to be no light at the end of the tunnel for UWindsor fitness aficionados.

Nike sports apparel has designed the Canadian Olympic hockey jersey since 2002, and has otherwise done a great job. This leaked photo which has made its rounds through various outlets shows the 2014 edition of the Canadian sweater; which could end up being the fashion dud of the winter season. While they certainly aren’t the worst thing the Canadian national team has ever dawned; (the mustard yellow throwbacks from the 2005 World Cup hold that honour.) This jersey does seem to lack what the French call a certain “I don’t know what.” “The Vancouver Jersey was striking,” said visual arts student Zack Malcolm. “Not only was it visually appealing, but it was culturally symbolic. These ones seem bland in comparison.” Prior to the Vancouver Olympics, it was announced that the Canadian Squad would not be able to wear the

Hockey Canada logo on their chest again in international competition. What followed was Nike’s outstanding take on the maple leaf which was comprised of native art flowing throughout. “It’s almost as if this jersey didn’t have a chance. They completely hit the last one out of the park. For what may go down as they greatest jersey in Ca-

nadian history,” said University of Windsor graduate Mackenzie Bayes. With nearly five months until the Olympics, these jerseys have time to grow on the Canadian faithful. Once they are battle tested they may look more appealing, after all anything would look good with a gold medal draped around it.

Q&A with Lancer baseball KAEDENWALLS lance reporter __________________________ Ahead of this week’s weekend series against the Laurier Golden Hawks, Lance correspondent Kaeden Walls sat down with rookies Adam Hyslop and Richard Chan of the men’s baseball team. KW: ADAM, YOU WALKED INTO THE TEAM. HOW TOUGH WAS THAT? AND GOING IN HOW CONFIDENT WERE YOU IN MAKING IT? AH: At the beginning, I was confident in myself in making the team but I was unaware of the calibre of players, and the skill it took to play university ball. I didn’t know how much playing time I would receive being a walk on freshman and playing a relatively new position [catcher, previously a centre fielder]

KW: YOUR TEAM HAS NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP ASPIRATIONS, HOW MUCH OF A CHANCE COULD YOU SAY YOU GUYS HAVE? AH: I believe that we have a very good chance of winning the national championship. From the way we’ve played, I think that it is an attainable goal. RC: I don’t think that it’s that far [fetched]. Because of the returning veterans which lead the team and up and coming freshman that play their roles well. KW: Being rookies, how much of an adjustment is it from the high school/ travel game? AH: Skill wise, it’s not that big of an adjustment after playing travel but the seriousness of the team, the drive, wanting to win each game and win the national championship is a big change. RC: Me personally, it’s not much of a change. Because as a starter on my travel team to becoming a starter on the Lancer team, it’s not much of a difference. KW: RICHARD, YOU WERE A COVETED PROSPECT COMING OUT OF SANDWICH SECONDARY, WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO STAY HOME AND NOT PURSUE A U.S SCHOLARSHIP? RC: I have been pursuing a scholarship offer from the US, but haven’t found the right school or situation so I decided to stay home and play ball still before I make my decision. KW: Having so much potential for this year’s team, what must you two do to earn playing time?

AH: To earn playing time, participation is huge. It’s crucial to not miss anything because that way the coaches can see that you’re as invested in it as the other players and that you WANT to be on the field and playing. RC: You have to be consistent with practices and to perform how you’re expected on the field. KW: DO EITHER OF YOU HAVE GOALS TO PLAY BASEBALL AFTER UNIVERSITY? AH: I’ll always love the game and I’ll always make time to play it, however not at a competitive level. RC: I do have ambition to play professional baseball after university, whether it’s MLB or any type of men’s league in Canada. RC: I don’t think that the age difference is a big deal because of the chemistry between the teammates. KW: HOW HAS IT BEEN PLAYING FOR FRANK JENEY? BEING THE FOOTBALL TRAINER HE MUST BE PRETTY TOUGH ON THE TEAM. AH: The workouts are extremely intense, fast pace. I do like his style and I enjoy playing for him, he’s a good manager. RC: Being coached by Frank Jeney is a wonderful delight, I aspire to someday be like him in many aspects more than baseball.

Don’t hate the player, hate the game MIKESPECHT sports editor __________________________ With NHL and NBA seasons almost underway; clearly the best way to celebrate is to discuss the baseless hatred of the game’s biggest stars. Whether you like it or not, LeBron James and Sidney Crosby are the best players in their respective sports. The pair could retire tomorrow, and without reservation say that they won everything there is to win, before the age of 27. “I want to be the best, so whatever comes with that, I’ll have to accept,” Crosby said during the 2011 NHL season. What comes with being the best is more than just glory, every move is carefully dissected by pundits and fans. LeBron James could rescue a kitten from a tree

and still receive more jeers than cheers. Formerly known as “King,” LeBron had a pristine reputation prior to his departure from Cleveland 2010. As was his right as a free agent, James took his talents to South Beach to combine with Dwayne Wade and fellow free agent Chris Bosh. Two NBA Championships and two Finals MVP awards should have made James’s time in Cleveland fade into history, but the hate lingers. “Deep down, I love LeBron. He is an amazing athlete,” says basketball blogger Manny Mahal. “But he grew up in Akron, Ohio and he made it to the Finals with the Cavaliers who drafted him 1st overall. In my opinion he shouldn’t have ran from where he came from.” By that logic, people loved LeB-

ron for a variety of factors that were beyond his control; such as where he was born, and who drafted him. But hate him for making a decision that would not only impact his career, but his family for the next ten to fifteen years. Fun fact: Forbes deemed Cleveland “the most miserable city in America in 2010.” Now onto Sid, where detractors see him a “whiner” because he has been known to debate calls with refs on occasion.

that he wears on his sweater. NHL rule 6.1 states Captain  One Captain shall be appointed by each team, and he alone shall have the privilege of discussing with the Referee any questions relating to interpretation of rules which may arise during the progress of a game. This means that it is literally Crosby’s job to speak on behalf of the Penguins when a ques-

tionable scenario arises. The talent of a Sidney Crosby or a LeBron James is undeniable, and more often than not they will spurn your favourite team. It seems petty to concentrate on anything other than what happens between the whistles; because if you can truly hate these players, maybe you don’t love the game.

“I’ll be the first one to admit my first couple of years I was pretty hard on the refs,” noted Crosby, during the 2012 playoffs. Having admitted to being tough on officials when he came into the league (at 18 years old) is it fair to assume that every time Crosby speaks to a ref, he is whining? Let’s not forget that 3 inch “C” LeBron/Crosby • image by Rob Cressy

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY PAUL HENDERSON:

ROUGH WEEK IN THE NFL

On September 28 Canadians celebrated the 42nd anniversary of Paul Henderson’s winning goal in the final game of the 1972 Summit Series. The goal, which is widely considered the greatest in Canadian history, came in with 34 seconds left in the tiebreaking eighth game between Canada and the Soviet Union. Henderson who has been battling cancer since 2010, finished the series with seven goals and three assists.

Sunday was a tough one for many teams in the NFL as several notable injuries occurred. The New England Patriots have lost defensive tackle Vince Wilfork for the year with a torn Achilles tendon, while Tennessee Titans Quarterback Jake Locker may be out four to eight weeks with an injured hip. Elsewhere, Redskins running back Alfred Morris left their tilt with the Raiders and Chargers linebacker Dwight Freeney tore his quadriceps in a victory over Dallas.

LANCERS ESCAPE WITH A WIN

NBA TO CHANGE FINALS FORMAT

After a scare last week, Lancers quarterback Austin Kennedy led his squad to a narrow 26-25 victory of the Laurier Golden Hawks last Saturday. Mitch Dender led the way for the blue and gold with 155 yards rushing and a score, while Kennedy threw for two more majors. The Lancers (4-2) return home for a match against the rival Western Mustangs Saturday night at Alumni Field. Kickoff goes at 7:00 p.m.

The NBA is expected to end its distinct 2-3-2 format for its best of seven finals series in favour of the NHL style 2-2-11-1. The NBA has used the 2-3-2 format since the 1980’s when travel between Los Angeles and Boston was tedious. As teams now have access to charter planes, travel has become easier and this change allows for an easier distribution of home court momentum in a series.

WOMEN’S HOCKEY TEAM BLOWS OUT DEVILETTE’S Led by Erinn Noseworthy’s two goal performance the Lancers downed the Senior AA London Devilette’s 6-2 in exhibition play on Sunday. The Lancers also received strong offensive performances from Candice Chevalier, and Jenny MacKnight.
