Citizens Pause to Remember DanGray

News Intern __________________________ Windsor has come together in a large crowd to rember the fallen soldiers who fought for our freedom. The Royal Canadian Legion [RCL] remembrance committee has held the annual ceremony for many years on the Sunday preceding Remembrance Day, this year the ceremony fell on Nov. 9. The event was held under the watchful eyes of a stronger than usual police presence following the recent shootings in Ottawa. Members of the Windsor Police Services could be seen on the rooftops of surrounding buildings as well as amongst those gathered, but their presence did not stop hundreds of people from taking part in the solemn act of remembrance.

Mike Glovaski, who has been involved with the ceremony since 1983, said this ceremony is organized completely by District A of the RCL. According to Glovaski, members from the 31st Battalion, RCMP, Cadet organizations and various other community groups participate in many ways.

Glovaski said that holding it on the Sunday is more convenient for some people. “The legion does it on the Sunday because the eleventh is not a holiday,” said Glovaski. “So a lot of people are working, the kids are still in school. This gives them the opportunity to do the act of remembrance because it is on a Sunday.” Standing guard at the corners of the memorial, much like Nathan Cirillo did in Ottawa, were members from the 31st Service Battalion. They stood silently throughout the service while other members from their battalion marched on parade. Many local dignitaries from all levels of government were also in attendance and joined Silver Cross mother Theresa Charbonneau and many others in laying approximately 20 wreaths at the base of the cenotaph. MP Brian Masse referred to the recent attacks and the outpouring of support that was shown to him during the difficult few days on Parliament Hill; others, like MPP Lisa Gretzky, spoke of how Canadians cannot let the actions of a few stop people from moving forward and taking the time to gather and remember.

Scholarship Celebrates 15 Years travisFauteux News Editor __________________________ An important scholarship is celebrating an equally important milestone. The ATHENA scholarship was created in 1999 to award three students who have spent time in Windsor-Essex and who have taken an interest in increasing leadership opportunities for women, enhancing the quality of life in their community, mentoring, team building and pursuing diversity. This year, the scholarship celebrated its 15th anniversary at a special luncheon Nov. 7 at the Giovanni Caboto Club. Loretta Stoyka, president of the ATHENA Scholarship Fund, said she is glad to see the award continue to have an impact on the community. “I felt it was important to shine light on the very bright young women we have in our community, give them self-esteem and let them go forward,”

said Stoyka. “I’m almost tearful seeing [the scholarship] come this far.” Stoyka said the message of the scholarship program is to exceptional role models by elevating people with potential and solid values. This year, three women were awarded with the scholarship, which is valued at $5,000 each. Susie Redekop, a recipient who hopes to start a career in social work, graduated from the social work and women’s studies programs at the University of Windsor with an A average grade. She worked as an intern at the Welcome Centre Shelter for Homeless Women where she provided crisis management and counseling, and taught life skills and coping strategies. Katherine Vrantsidis, the second recipient of the award, is in her third year of an honours bachelor of mathematics degree. She wants to educate See Scholarship on page

Students Grow Moustaches for Men’s Health

travisFauteux News Editor __________________________

A University of Windsor student is challenging his fellow classmates to raise money and awareness for various issues affecting men’s health. Ryan Smith, a fourth-year business student at the University of Windsor, is teaming up with Student Health Services to raise awareness and eliminate the stigma surrounding men’s health by encouraging men to grow moustaches during the month of November. Smith started a Movember campaign at the beginning of the month with the goal of reaching $5,000 by November 30; over $1,000 has already been collected. All proceeds collected for Movember will be put towards treatment and care programs for men with prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems. Smith said that he decided to participate in Movember because many boys and men are afraid to discuss mental health problems or are hesitant to consult a doctor. “There’s the slogan ‘Every moustache has a story,’” said Smith.  “So, by men growing moustaches, people are

going to start talking [about] what your story is, why you are growing a moustache this year. Maybe you know friends of family members who have suffered from mental illness, testicular cancer or prostate cancer.

“I am personally ‘Mo-ing’ so that research can be conducted to stop men losing their lives from prostate and testicular cancer [and] so that men and boys with mental health problems can live free of stigma and discrimination.” Smith said men need to know silence is not an option when it comes to important health issues. Men should know they have the opportunity to speak freely about their issues and the options available to them. Judy Wilson, health promotion nurse in Student Health Services, said they are focusing a lot of attention on testicular cancer because it affects the male student population the most. “Movember started off as support for people with prostate cancer and they have enriched it to include testicular cancer and men’s mental health,” said Wilson. “Certainly, testicular cancer is a young men’s disease and so that’s our target. We’re doing a lot of infor-

[Photo by // Travis Fauteux] mation around testicular self-examination. It’s going very well.” In order to encourage donations to the cause, Smith is allowing students to compete for the honour of having the best moustache. The person with

the best moustache will receive $50 in UWinCASH, which can be used for photocopying, printing, laundry, food and bookstore purchases at the University. The top three earners for the cam-

paign will receive $100, $75 and $50 in UWinCASH. Those who are interested in donating to the Movember campaign can do so by following this link: http://

MADD’s Red Ribbon Campaign Kicks Off

november 13 2O14 • //


Express Raise Championship Banners in Home-Opener

“With every red ribbon that’s worn, we are reminding people that the deaths and injuries caused by impaired driving are 100 per cent preventable and that each and every person has the power to prevent impaired driving,” said MADD Canada national president, Angeliki Souranis. [Photo by // Travis Fauteux] TravisFauteux News Editor __________________________ As the holiday season begins, drivers are being warned about the dangers of impaired driving. A RIDE (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) program stop, set up on Tecumseh Rd. E, served as a kickoff event for Mothers Against Drunk Driving’s (MADD) 27th annual Project Red Ribbon campaign Nov. 6. Windsor Police officers handed drivers free ice scrapers and red MADD ribbons to help promote the message that drunk driving can kill people. Millions of red ribbons are distributed in Canada during the annual campaign, which runs from the beginning of November to the beginning of January.




“With every red ribbon that’s worn, we are reminding people that the deaths and injuries caused by impaired driving are 100 per cent preventable, and that each and every person has the power to prevent impaired driving,” said MADD Canada national president, Angeliki Souranis. Chaouki Hamka, Windsor-Essex MADD community leader, said that the yearly campaign is important for reducing impaired driving during the holiday season when partying increases and road conditions worsen. “There’s a lot more festivities, a lot more parties going on [and] there’s a lot more drinking when it comes to the holiday season,” said Hamka. “So we try to target that specific time because of that.” Between 1,250 and 1,500 Canadians

are killed and more than 63,000 are injured each year in impairmentrelated crashes, according to MADD. “The red ribbons are distributed all over, at police stations, at All State Insurance locations and various local businesses, including the LCBO,” said Hamka. “We hand them out throughout the entire holiday season, even throughout the entire year, so we try to get the ribbons flowing as much as we can. “We encourage the public to tie a ribbon on their vehicle antenna, on their purses and their backpacks as a way to show their commitment to driving safe and sober.” According to Hamka, on average, four people are killed every day and 175 people are injured every day because of impaired driving crashes.

Jennifer Kysilka, the final recipient of the scholarship, was raised in Windsor, but completed her bachelor of science in general health science at Purdue University and her master of public health at George Washington University. She is currently finishing up a master of business administra-

tion at the University of Windsor. Kysilka has evaluated health facilities and has conducted outreach projects to improve the lives of youth in Kenya, Ecuador and South Africa. One day, she hopes to work in hospital administration and create policies that prioritize patient care, or work for a non-profit organization that provides health care to communities around the world.

The scholarship will help pay off Kysilka’s student loans, but she said the award means much more. “It’s really important to honour the women in our community,” said Kysilka. “I think empowering women can really change the world for the people that they touch, so it’s really meaningful that they’ve spent 15 years honouring the women in our community.”

One for the books: McGill, Windsor in Rematch of Queen’s Cup

ankurkumar Sports Intern __________________________ Wins over Ryerson and Toronto last weekend had the Windsor Lancer men’s hockey team extend their winning streak to 11 games. The Lancers have encountered several scenarios that disprove the fact this has been an easy run of any kind. After Domenic Alberga tied the game for the Ryerson Rams with 19.5 seconds left in regulation Nov. 7 the Lancers had to go to second overtime of 3-on-3 before they recovered the win. Despite a 10-3 win earlier this season, the Varsity Blues led the Lancers by two goals on three separate occasions in the game. “They weren’t the same team we played at South Windsor,” said third-year forward Matt Beaudoin “They were really hard on the puck. They were really physical.” Beaudoin led the charge of four goals just 1:49 into the third period. Only for a few minutes were the Lancers within one before Jeff Brown, known as public enemy number one to Lancer Nation because of his gritty, hard-nosed play, regained the two-goal lead for the Blues. “When we‘re down, our team has the

ability to come back if we play the right way,” said Beaudoin. “It has been paying off. I don’t know what’s happening. It’s pretty special. It’s indescribable.” After Kenny Bradford got the Lancers back within one before Eric Noel tied the score, Dylan Denomme’s late game tiebreaker secured the 6-5 win. However, the Lancers cannot relish in the triumph of three unanswered goals. It’s back to work before a rematch with the McGill Redmen – nearly eight months after the Lancers had captured their first Queen’s Cup in 16 years over the historically known school. “It’s the marquee matchup this year. We’ve had it marked on our calendar and I know they have as well,” said Beaudoin. “We’re 11-0 for a reason because we prepare the same week in week out.” Many teams are still skeptical of the success demonstrated by the Lancers. Theteamhasfoundthemselvesonthe brink of loss already this season and despite managing comebacks thanks to late game heroics, they have plenty to prove to the rest of the competition in the conference and beyond. While the Lancer veterans, such as team captain Drew Palmer, Queen’s Cup MVP Parker Van Buskirk, thirdyear forwards Spencer Pommells

Lancer’s defense, Saverio Posa during the Lancer men’s hockey game against the Ryerson Rams Nov. 7 [Photo by // Alex D’Addese ] and Matt Beaudoin know what to brace themselves for, a newcomer such as Dylan Denomme can only leave so much to the imagination. “That’s what people portray it as – a rematch of the Queen’s Cup. The big-

gest game of the year so far,” said Denomme, who remains scheduled in the lineup despite a hit from Mitch Quinlin of RMC two weeks ago from a broken nose, is reamining optimistic.

The McGill Redmen are 7-3-0 prior to their return to South Windsor Arena. Despite the eight months since the Queen’s Cup, the loss will be fresh on the minds of the Redmen as soon as they step on the ice at South Windsor Arena.

Welcome Home: Lancers Remain Undefeated at S.W.A.

ankurkumar Sports Intern __________________________

The Lancers women’s hockey team returned to South Windsor Arena Nov. 7th for the first time since Oct. 11th. Without Lancers hockey on home ice in nearly four weeks, who would have predicted the incredible outcome against the York Lions team riding a hot three-game winning streak? “It’s our home. Our cheer before the game is ‘This is Our House!’explained first-year member, Shailyn Waites.

up being new to the roster. Whether it was three goals by Waites or three assists by the emerging force of Krystin Lawrence, the rookies have adapted well to head coach Jim Hunter’s game plan and have played like an experienced tandem so far. “They (Waites and Lawrence) are two first year kids playing on the same line. They’re stepping up and playing like veterans in the OUA,” said Hunter. “We have eight new players on our team. Someone in their first year had to step up and act like a veteran.”

With her first career hat trick in her freshman season, Waites radiated confidence after a memorable performance. Her goals boosted the Lancers to a 3-0-0 record on home ice. The old adage of good things come in threes held true for the Blue & Gold.

Although the score sheet emphasized newcomers Waites and Lawrence, it was also notable for the breakout of fifth-year forward Candice Chevalier. The breakaway to open the scoring and the empty netter towards the end of regulation were unforgettable highlights.

After a shorthanded goal by York Lions captain Lisa Stathopulos in the final 20 seconds of the middle frame, the Lancers attacked right out of the gate 17 seconds into the third period.

“We have three solid lines that can produce. We’re connecting with each other and it’s making all the difference so far,” said Chevalier.

“(Jim) Hunter just told us to keep working hard. Our offense game was strong and we took it to them,” said Waites. The Lancers are a revamped group this season with almost half the line-


Next up for the Lancers are the Ryerson Rams, followed by the Toronto Varsity Blues. Both schools are reputable for their women’s hockey programs, but it has been the Blues who have beaten the Lancers on six straight occasions over the previous

It will be another tough challenge against a top contender of women’s

Film Review: Fury

Play Review: Blood Relations jaySivakumar Arts Intern __________________________ Blood Relations provides a new and interesting interpretation of the infamous double murder case of Lizzie Borden’s parents, which Lizzie was acquitted of in the late 1880s. The case held great public interest as it was ludicrous for most to imagine a daughter murdering her own parents. All in all, the play is wellproduced and features exceptional technical direction. The haunting music and lightning between scene transitions act to intensify the evocative emotions exhibited by the characters. There are also moments of comedic relief in the play, which are aptly juxtaposed to the suspenseful and serious elements of the play.

war through his eyes and because of this it only becomes more harrowing for us to watch.

This film made me feel more sad, more angry and more scared than any other war film I have seen before. All of this is due to the excellent portrayals of the five man tank unit that operates the titular vessel.

If we stripped this film down just to its plot, we would have a rather formulaic storyline: new guy joins the team, team is tasked with impossible mission, and they end up being the last hope for success. However, what makes this film work so well are the poignant moments that writer/director David Ayer decides to focus on. One of the highlight scenes is near the middle of the film where Pitt and Lerman’s characters discover two German women hiding in an apartment. This scene is incredibly touching and yet you can still feel the tension and unease of the soldiers at war, ready to strike at a moment’s notice if necessary.

The film opens up as WWII is coming to a close. The allied forces have pushed the Nazis back into Germany and the further they go in, the more dangerous it becomes. Don “Wardaddy” Collier (Brad Pitt) is Fury’s commander and he leads the team with a reserved intensity that only a hardened veteran of war could show. We see on his face that any humanity he had before the war has now dissipated. It’s worth mentioning, while this is not Pitt’s best work, he still knocks it out of the park. The rest of the team consists of: Shia LaBeouf as Boyd Swan; Michael Pena as Trini Garcia; Jon Bernthal as Grady Travis; and team newcomer Norman Ellison played by Logan Lerman. All of the supporting players own their roles and it is their bond that glues this film together. Lerman is the film’s hidden gem playing a trained typist who was thrown into the war just a few short weeks prior to meeting the Fury team. This kid is scared, sick to his stomach and completely unprepared to witness the horrors of war to come: he represents us, the audience. We see the

The action is better than one might expect for a film focused on a tank. Some of the more intended intense battle scenes come across as over the top but the final battle of the film more than makes up for it. I think this film is a great representation of war times, especially a time that usually isn’t looked at. The performances are phenominal; each character has a moment to shine and each one contributes in showing the friendship and closeness these men share. They truly are a band of brothers. There are some scenes that slow the momentum but there are more than enough other scenes to make up for it.



The central component of the play revolves around a singular question: was she innocent or guilty? This is highly emphasized in play as even the set features newspapers plastered around in the background, which relate to the events of the case. Rather than depicting a linear sequence of events, the play features a complex series of events that revolves around a game.

She asks the actress to step into her role while Lizzie depicts Brigid, the household maid and concocts the other characters from her mind. Overall, the characters are rich and diverse and believably bring

forth the events that took place in the case. The ambiguous open-ended answer that the play offers will act to truly shock and mystify audiences. This play is worth watching not once but twice to appreciate the intricate nature of the dialogues that were delivered with perfection by the talented cast.

Gallery to Donate to Hospice with Charity Show Kar-LeighKelso Arts Editor __________________________

it was “a tougher year” in terms of donations but she remains optimistic about this year.

A local gallery is raising money and awareness for Hospice with an art show.

Local artist and show contributor Ron Dufault said although he has been showcasing at the gallery for the last five years, this year in particular held a much more personal meaning.

Nancy Johns Gallery & Framing is holding its seventh annual art show Tranquility. The event is set to run the rest of the month with 10 per cent of all proceeds from art sales going directly to the Hospice of Windsor and Essex County.

““I lost my dad this year, and he was a candidate for Hospice,” said Dufault. “We were waiting for him to be put into Hospice.”

Nancy Johns, gallery owner and Windsor artist, said the chosen charity dictates the theme for the November anniversary show.

Dufault said whether or not others are going through the same struggles, he would give them one piece of advice in particular.

“I like to do an anniversary show every year and because it’s the local community that creates me, it’s all about giving back to the community that creates us,” said Johns. “This year I found a lot of my artists had changes in life with family members passing, and I just felt this was the choice of the charity this year.”

“Since I lost my father this year, [I would tell others to] look for those tranquil moments, every day,” said Dufault. “I’ve kind of started doing that. I’ve been forcing myself to look for those things every day.”

Johns said she hopes to raise $1,000 for Hospice this year, a goal that has been met many times in the past with the gallery’s previous anniversary shows. Last year, they unfortunately did not meet the goal, as Johns said

Nancy Johns Gallery & Framing will be showcasing the tranquility themed work for the remainder of November and accepting additional cash donations for Hospice throughout the month as well. For detailed information on the showcasing artists and more information about the gallery, visit
