Students Head to the Polls for UWSA By-Election alexDenonville News Editor __________________________ After months of turmoil, withheld funds and an unelected governing body, students will be heading to the polls this week to choose, or refuse, a new slate of students hoping to represent them on the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance. Full time undergraduate students will be able to vote online from their own electronic devices or through computers provided at a number of buildings throughout the university campus between 9:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Nov. 27 and 28. There are over 11,200 eligible voters. Votes will be cast through a system provided by the university at uwindsor.ca/ uwsavote. Chief Returning Officer April Adams said they are also trying to have a voting station in as many buildings as possible. UWSA volunteers will be available to assist students through
the voting process. “It’s for accessibility of all members, so if you’re close and don’t have computer, there are people there to help,” said Adam, adding students will be asked to provide a valid student card to ensure they are eligible to vote. Adams said they hope to have the election results available by Friday night. Under UWSA policy, unofficial results must be released within 24 hours, with official results made public within two weeks. When asked about past election controversy around the eligibility of winning candidates, Adams said she confirmed candidate eligibility through the nomination process which included double-checking with the registrar’s office. “I’m really trying to focus on this election and I’m not going to be clouded by past performances and elections.

Incoming City Councilors Looking to Help Students
DANGRAy News Intern __________________________ Windsor’s incoming city councilors John Elliot and Rino Bortolin are planning to spend time making living, working and going to school easier for students at downtown campuses. According to the University of Windsor’s website, many different schools will be headed downtown in the next few years. Old buildings like the Armouries, the Windsor Star and Tunnel Bar-B-Q will be transformed into the School for Arts and Creative innovation, School of Social work the School of Music and others. John Elliott is the recently elected councilor for ward two, the ward in which the University of Winsdor is located. He said he wants to sit down with the university after he is sworn in. While he’s not sure what that conversation is going to sound like yet, he hopes the university will bring him up to speed on their plans and how
he can help them move forward. He’s hoping to bring new ideas for the corridor to the university but one of the issues he’s already identified is helping with student housing and safety. “I know there are some issues in our ward with some of the landlords that own the houses and there is like eight students in them…It’s a little bit of a mess that way in terms of some of the long-term residents having concerns,” said Elliot. “At the end of the day students have to have somewhere to live too, but lets make sure the places are safe and are following the proper standards.” Rino Bortolin, the soon to be ward 3 council member, is excited to have students in the downtown core. He said he wants to transform the downtown area and believes students are a large part of making that happen. For example, student housing could be done by private building owners in the downtown by switching some of the licensing from commercial to residential. The city would help by offering incentives and making the zoning
change easier for private investors. “The one biggest thing the downtown needs more than anything is people, so bringing the students is a good first step. It’s not the solution by any means but it’s a good first step to have thousands more people there during the day,” said Bortolin. “It would be good to actively recruit them to hopefully stay there, live there and to work there as well, that’s the long term goal.” Currently the campuses for both the university and the college are more commuter-based according to Bortolin. Change is needed in getting people to choose to live in the core, which can only be good for the city. Both new councilors agree having students downtown can only be good for the city. Where they are going to live, some of the conditions in which they live in and where they will work are all issues that are on their agendas. They will officially take over as councilors on Dec. 1.

alexDenonville News Editor __________________________ Student group Lancer Nation recently initiated what they hope becomes a weekly tradition on campus dubbed “Windsor Wednesdays.” The initiative asks students to don their blue and gold Lancer gear every Wednesday to increase pride on the campus. Lancer Nation President, Britney Bailey, said the group got the idea from the University’s department of student affairs, whose staff members wear blue and gold every Wednesday. “We noticed that something lacking on campus is school spirit, so we wanted to create a sense of tradition for students,” Bailey said.
Lancer Nation is coaxing students to participate with lots of goodies. Every Wednesday “prize squads” will seek out students showing their pride, rewarding them with UWindsor swag and ballots for sponsored prizes, such as a gift card from the bookstore. The group also partnered with the university’s public affairs office, which rolled out a photo booth at the CAW Centre last week to capture students in their gear. The photos were then posted on the University’s Instagram account. Bryan Dutot, Lancer Nation’s social outreach coordinator, was part of the prize squad last week. “We want everyone to wear Lancer gear to show that we’re all a family,” he said, adding off-campus students

Lancer’s Basketball Teams Take Two from ‘Wolves bretthedges Sports Editor __________________________ The Lancer’s basketball teams won two tough road games against the Lakehead University Thunderwolves in Thunder Bay, Nov. 22. The No. 1-ranked women’s team in the country needed a comeback after trailing by as many as 12 in the third quarter to defeat the ‘Wolves, 80-70. Sophomore forward Cheyanne Roger scored 19 points to lead the team in scoring while fifth-year senior Korissa Williams was all over the scoresheet recording 18 points, six rebounds and five steals.

In the next game, the Lancer men’s team used a dominant third quarter to defeat Lakehead , 85-76. “It was a great road win in a tough place to play,” said Lancers head coach Chris Oliver, whose team is currently ranked fifth in Canada. Rotimi Osuntola Jr., once again led the Lancers in scoring with 22 points and, “Continues to be a matchup nightmare for opposing teams,” according to Oliver.
A very even first half saw the Lancers lead 24-22 after the first quarter and then trail 45-43 at the half. After falling behind by 12 in the third, the Lancers defence shut down the Thunderwolves attack and outscored the hosts 24-8 in the fourth quarter to maintain their undefeated record of 5-0 and first-place standing in the OUA West division.

I follow the process, then everything should be kosher,” she said, adding all candidates “friended” a CRO Facebook account to ensure their social media campaigning was appropriate. Many positions are going uncontested. On the executive, the vice president positions of student advocacy and finance have only one candidate. The president and VP of student services positions have three and five candidates respectively. The race for senate has eight candidates running for six available positions. Of the 24 board of director positions, eight have no candidates running, which means the faculties of business, drama, law, nursing, science, social work and visual arts will have no direct representative in the new year. All other director positions have either too few, or just enough candidates to fill their available positions. In uncontested races, students will still be able to vote “no” for the candidates. In the case of a successful “no” vote, the positions will remain vacant. UWSA general manager, Nicole Morrell, said a lack of candidates is nothing new, pointing to a few factors working against the late election. “We have had many elections where positions were acclaimed, and it can be for many reasons,” she said, in-
dicating the late by-election paired with busy exam schedules can make for lower turnout. “We’re still really excited about the candidates we have. It’s always better to have some representation than none.” Candidates were given ten days to make themselves known. Posters have been strewn about campus since the start of the campaign period and many candidates have pushed their presence on social media. Students had the opportunity to engage with candidates at a forum hosted at the CAW Commons Nov. 24. While a number of students stood to pose questions, there was a majority of empty seats. Adams stepped up a number of times to ask the candidates to expand upon the platforms they provided her. The UWSA was left without an elected student government after a protest vote, in the form of a “None of the Above” campaign, swept the polls during the spring election. The vote left all possible positions vacant. Those on the board remained in their seats in accordance with the Ontario Corporations Act and worked with the staff at the UWSA over the summer to create new bylaws and election policies. Those new policies and bylaws were officially adopted at a special general meeting Oct. 30

[Photo by // Alex Denonville] which saw an overall turnout of approximately 300 full-time undergraduate students. Prior to the referendum on the new policies and bylaws, University of Windsor President Alan Wildeman indicated in a letter the university would withhold funds until the UWSA had an elected body and addressed concerns over how they would deal with the large transfers of student fees that usually take place. Dean of students, Clayton Smith, said the university has maintained the flow of money to a number of groups and programs normally funded through the UWSA. He said twothirds of the money held since April
has been transferred directly to those groups. In question is the money collected during the fall semester, some of which has already been funneled to groups like student societies and health insurance providers.
the UWSA and University, discussions about which have already been taking place between the two bodies’ legal representatives.
He added the university has three expectations of the UWSA moving forward into the second semester. The first two, new bylaws and policies, as well as a democratically elected body, are already underway.
“The transfer of funds is pretty clear, the issue really is the university needs to have confidence that the UWSA will act with good financial responsibility associated with the funds that we transfer to them, that’s why we need some sort of agreement as to how that will happen,” Smith said, adding he expects the conversation around the MOU to take place quickly once the new council is elected, hopefully early in the new year.
The third piece is a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between
“What’s important here is that we’re almost here.”
“But clearly there are a host of UWSA agencies that aren’t seeing money that would usually flow through UWSA,” Smith said.

A Morning in Poverty
United Way Event Simulates Poverty in Call for Change alexDenonville News Editor __________________________ I’m Dan Duntley, a 17 year old drug dealing high school student. My 16 year old girlfriend is pregnant. My dad just left my mom, 14 year old sister and I with ten dollars to our name. For the next month, my family and I will struggle to make ends meet. We’ll deal with many of the obstacles people living in poverty face everyday. To get a sense of that experience is why me and thirty or so community leaders and working professionals gathered at the Caboto Club for a workshop hosted by the United Way and the Windsor-Essex County Healthy Unity called “Living on the Edge: A Poverty Simulation.” Adapted from a program in Missouri, the workshop placed individuals into the role of people and their families living in poverty.
I started the day by meeting my sim-
My family and I got to work, putting together a detailed plan of action. For the first week, Mom was busy selling our unnecessary appliances, contacting agencies for help with our utilities and rent, and, of course, finding a job meanwhile my sister and I went to school, which took up eight minutes of the fifteen minute week. Our plan quickly crumbled. I’m jailed for attempting to sell drugs at school, which forced mom to use her precious minutes and a transportation pass to bail me out. We returned to our home at the end of the week determined to regroup. That positive and hopeful attitude was soon eclipsed by a creeping sense of chaos and helplessness as circumstances piled up against us. We were told to wear “I am hungry!” stickers because Mom didn’t spend enough money on food that week. There simply wasn’t enough time to buy all the groceries after dealing

ulated family. My mom, Doris Duntley, is really Fadia Ibrahim, a community outreach and caseworker for MPP Percy Hatfield. My sister, Diana Duntley, is really Sherry Bergeron, a worker with the health unit. The facilitator, United Way’s Leslie Frattoroli, explained our task in the workshop. We’re to survive for a month, split up into four 15 minute weeks, by navigating the complex, and often daunting, web of social service agencies, food banks, schools, homeless shelters, employers, banks, and even predatory pay-day loan companies. Frattoroli urged us to sincerely assume the roles we had been given. “This is a simulation, not a game,” said Frattoroli. “Every profile you’ve been given is based on a real life situation, none of this has been fabricated.” We were given our starting resources: three transportation passes, ten $10 in cash, social insurance cards, a number of slips representing household appliances and a sheet indicating how much we must spend on food to stay fed.
with all the bureaucrats at the various agencies she visited. To top it off, we received “bad news” that a relative is visiting. In my privileged world, a visiting relative would be celebrated. During the simulation, they were just another mouth to feed on a budget already stretched too thin. The second week rolls around. Mom headed out to do what she must: find a job, pay the bills and complete the necessary applications to receive government benefits. Sister and I headed off to school, where we immediately pay $6 for “supplies,” a cost I normally wouldn’t have given second thought. By the time we got home, which is actually a table, we found our chairs turned up and an eviction notice. When mom got home from bouncing between agencies, employers and food banks, we were slapped with another sticker. “I am very hungry!” they said. That’s where researchers locate the correlation called the “social determinants of health.” The cost of healthy eating has risen
nearly 20 per cent in the last five years in Windsor-Essex, so people living in poverty are less likely, less able even, to eat well. They’re expected to live 20 years less than those in high income neighbourhoods and also make up a larger share of public health expenditure.
“It was an eye-opening experience,”
mated the cost of crime attributable
That means someone in the lowest category of income costs taxpayers twice as much on healthcare than someone in the highest group. Dr. Gary Kirk, CEO of the local health unit, emphasized that tie. “Poverty doesn’t just mean you don’t have money,” said Kirk. “It also means you don’t have access to goods that truly affect your health, both medical and physical health, and mental health as well.” Even though it was a simulation, I felt the stress of the chaotic situation at home. We were getting desperate.

Mom was doing the hectic run around to make ends meet. Sister was babysitting for transportation passes. I decided to use my vacation week off school to find a job. I could barely fill out the application form. No references. No previous work experience. No education. I fudged my way through an interview “I’m good with people, and I really bring a motivation to work,” I told the interviewer, who didn’t seem to notice my motivation was fuelled by desperation. I told him I had sales experience, alluding to my pot selling days. I was finally awarded a job as parttime office assistant. Things were looking up after the third week. We found out the eviction was illegal, so we returned back home. Mom had done enough to feed us, so we proudly tore off our “I am very hungry” stickers. Sadly though, many in the hall now donned the tag “I am STARVING” and the line at the homeless shelter was getting longer. The final week flew by. I spent seven minutes out of our 15 minute week at work for an $88 paycheck, while sister went to school. Mom was still catching up, but with the extra income, it was looking better. Even though I was bringing in money, I knew the decision to leave school wouldn’t be good for me in the long run. Those dilemmas also stuck out for my sister, played by Sherry Bergeron. “For me, it was deciding whether to steal or not,”Bergeron said, explaining her ruse to scam a few bucks off of a man flashing his cash. “You can really see how that would be a reality, a way to react to your circumstances.” Those “terrible decisions” are ones those in poverty can face every day, according to Pathway to Potential director Adam Vasey.
Stickers indicated when families hadn’t eaten enough the previous week. [Photo by // Alex Denonville] Vasey said at the debriefing discussion. “It gave me visceral feelings about some of the challenges, that I know from talking to people who live in poverty, face everyday. Things like constant stress, isolation, insecurity, housing instability, not knowing where your next meal’s coming from. Having to making really difficult decisions, from choosing between trying to stave off eviction or buying enough food to keep children food.” Those difficult decisions can also manifest in crime. While the statistical waters are muddy, poverty tends to be associated with lower levels of education and literacy, which is correlated to crime. A 2011 study esti-
to poverty in Windsor totalled over $31 million. I’ve never enjoyed employing the “economic argument” to advocate for a solution to poverty. While that argument seems to reduce people’s lives into a dollar sign, it’s one that must be made. Conservative estimates peg the “annual cost of poverty” in Windsor-Essex County to be $450 million. But the dollars and cents don’t seem as real as the simulated experience. When the facilitator asked the entire See POVERTY on page

dard, adding many post secondary students can empathize with having too few resources, given rising debt loads along with other costs of life. But it can’t just be about band-aid solutions to the impacts of poverty. “One thing I see is that a lot of student groups want to reach out and help the community,” says Adam Vasey.
“What I feel strongly is that, yes, we needs services and programs to help with emergency needs, definitely, but we also need people who are going to be champions of these issues and talk about some of the policy changes that are needed. “We have to ask questions as a society as to why this level of poverty exists. The reality is there’s a lot of smart, concrete policies that could wipe away a huge chunk of poverty in our country. So it’s not for a lack of knowing what to do, it’s just a lack of, in some cases, political will. That would be my call to action, not for students to stop doing what they’re doing, but to also get engaged in advocacy.” If my real parent’s circumstances were different, I really could be Dan Duntley. What was simulated could have been real for me, yet I’d be unable to escape the “creeping sense of chaos and helplessness.” And while we may feel hopeless in the face of growing inequality and poverty, we all have the privilege of being able to do something about it. Whether it’s directly helping those in need, or calling out the very system which serves to marginalize and impoverish them. Our day at Caboto Club ended with a call to action - “Write down one thing you can do in the next week for someone living in poverty in our community. Commit to doing that one thing.”

Express Sweep Two-Game Review: Mary Poppins Set with London Lightning The Musical kar-leighkelso
Arts Editor __________________________ There was much more than a spoonful of sugar present at the Chrysler Theatre this weekend as the famous Mary Poppins herself graced the stage to bring music and magic to Windsor audiences. Based on the Disney film and on similar books by P.L. Travers, this Mary Poppins musical allows us to relive the story’s sparkle and fun as the cheery, silly nanny swoops in to save an unhappy family from the problems they’ve been having in their separate lives and amongst themselves at home. In the Edwardian-age London of 1910, the Banks family is home to a frigid banker and his spoiled, bored children have chased away their usual nanny for the last time for being such a handful. Mary Poppins swoops in on her magical umbrella to save the day, the marriage and the children’s childhood. Director David Burrows truly outdid himself with the whole production. The casting is extremely

[Photo by // Aaron Sanders] bretthedges Sports Editor __________________________ The Windsor Express have defeated the London Lightning twice in a span of five days improve their season record to 5-1. The defending National Basketball League of Canada champions needed a defensive stop in the final moments of their game to take a 92-91 victory at the WFCU Centre, Nov. 19 . The Express led by eight headed into the fourth quarter but needed a clutch basket by Quinnel Brown with 16 seconds remaining to take the lead. “To be honest, I didn’t know it was the game-winning shot until it went in,” said Brown, who finished the game with 13 points and 10 rebounds. “If I didn’t have anything, I was supposed to dump it down to Chris [Commons]. But they were fronting Chris so I was forced to make a play. After the basket, the Lightning called a timeout in attempt to set up a game-
winning shot, but the Express defence would not allow it. Lightning forward Emmanuel Little’s last second shot barely grazed the rim as time expired. Express guard Tony Bennett was named player of the game for his 13 points, 13 assist effort in 41 minutes against his former team. Bennett was brought to Windsor from London prior to the regular season for the signing rights of former Express all-star guard Stefan Bonneau, the 2014 NBL Canada Finals MVP. Bonneau now plays in China for the Xinjang Flying Tigers. Althought he was in foul trouble most of the evening, DeAndre Thomas still led the Express in scoring with 21 points, 15 of which came in the first half. Four days later, the Express travelled up the 401 highway for a Sunday matinee rematch, Nov. 22, this time in London at Budweiser Gardens. Over 6,600 fans packed the arena for the teams third meeting in the young season and the game did not disap-
point. In a physical battle that saw over 60 personal fouls called, it was the Express who pulled out the 104100 victory, Windsor’s fifth win in a row. “London and Windsor is a tough rivalry,” said Head Coach and Director of Basketball Operations Jones, whose teams leads the all-time series with the Lightning, 11-8. “They told me that when I first got the job here and it’s the truth.” The Lightning pulled within one point in the final seconds once again, but it was the Express free throw shooting of Thomas and Brown in the final minute that sealed the victory. Thomas and Brown led the Express in scoring on the afternoon with 26 and 25 points, respectively. After the game, Jones wasn’t shy of his evaluation of Thomas’s level of play. “”In my opinion, DeAndre Thomas is the best five-man in the league,” said Jones. “He just needs to learn how to control his emotions and once he does that, he’s unstoppable.”
talented, and though grade school teacher Mary Roberts said “it’s the coolest thing [she’s] ever done,” hopefully this will give her the opportunity to do some more stage acting in the future, because she really was a joy to watch as Mary Poppins on stage. Even though she had some big shoes to fill, she did the role justice. Also worth mentioning is, of course, her male lead Mario Cascara, who plays the part of Bert and is equally fun to watch singing and dancing on the stage next to her. Producer Cameron Wright got the approval from author Travers in 2004 to turn Mary Poppins into a musical, and along with keeping many of the original songs he added in a few more of his own, also keeping both elements from the famous Disney film and the books that inspired the characters. The lighting, the music--everything was spot on in this performance and really captured all the best parts of the Mary Poppins the world knows and loves. I don’t have a single complaint about the performance.
Review: The Crucible
kar-leighkelso Arts Editor __________________________ Dark witchcraft envelops the stage as we are immersed in the historic setting of Salem, Massachusetts, where it was said to have run rampant hundreds of years ago. Directed by Gordon McCall, his rendition of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible takes us back to the Salem witch trials, which took place between 1692 and 1693, with the execution of 20 people accused of witchcraft. Right from the beginning, with the dark, emotionally intense atmosphere picks you up and drags you in as if you were present at the trials themselves so long ago. Suspicion is on overdrive, and it seems to be affecting every person in the town--all because local girls were dancing in the forest with a slave girl, where the very Puritan people of Salem bear witness to the event, and one of the townspeople’s daughters inconveniently falls into what appears to be a coma. Things become far more complicat-
ed when one of the girls in the group admits to communicating with the devil, dragging a whole lot of people down with her. One of the girls joins her, of course adding more validity to the story and causing complete hysteria in the townsfolk. Following these events is a gripping thriller of a play, really playing upon the mysteriousness of the issues at hand as they were actually perceived in the late 1600s. The acting was, as per usual of the University Players, totally on par and fantastic to watch. Every performance truly did the story justice and brought the characters to life. In addition, the lighting and sound really added to the experience and definitely had a hand in pulling me into the play. Unfortunately if you didn’t get to see the play, this was your last weekend to do so. However the story itself is a lot of fun to see, so if you get the chance to see it performed elsewhere, I’d highly recommend giving it a watch.

Lancers Volleyball Teams Both Split Weekend Series bretthedges Sports Editor __________________________ Both Lancers volleyball teams have walked away from the weekend at the St. Denis Centre with one loss and one win. After the men’s team dropped a fiveset match to the York Lions, Nov. 21 they bounced back to defeat the Nippissing Lakers, 3-0, Nov. 22. Lancers head coach James Gravelle said he was happy with his teams ability to bounce back after the loss to York the previous night. “I thought we put that (loss) in the rear view quickly,” said Gravelle. “We came out today and our first set was really strong, which is always important in bounce back matches.” Gravelle added the Lancers limited Nippissing’s offensive rhythm, especially during their 25-13 first set win. “Serving and passing were huge for us,” said Gravelle. “They’re basic skills and are often overlooked but today we put them in a lot of trouble with our serve. Also, we passed the ball really well.” Gravelle said the hitting of middle Alex Vukovic and right side Gabriel Burlacu gave the Lancers a spark while the passing of Greg Simone was key to the win - which gives the Lancers a 4-4 record and puts them in a tie for seventh place in the OUA. Moving towards the second half of the regular season, Gravelle wants his team to emphasize closing out matches. “We’ve had a couple five-set losses that we let those games get away from us and that hurt us in the standings,” said Gravelle. “From a technical standpoint, we need to block the ball better, especially against [our opponents] right side.”

The women’s team enjoyed a week off but reflected on a split pair of home games, Nov. 14 and 15 at the St. Denis Centre. After defeating the Lakehead Thunderwolves, Nov. 14 by a 3-0 score, the Lancers suffered a 3-0 setback against the Ottawa GeeGees. The women defeated the ‘Wolves with scores of 25-21, 25-21 and 25-14 on the strength of Anna Aguayo and Shannon Dean’s nine and eight kills, respectively. Hannah Robson led the defensive effort with 13 digs and seven kills of her own. Against the GeeGees, the team fought back in the first set from a six point deficit on the strength of
Danielle Lenarduzzi’s serving, but defensive miscommunications led to a 25-21 loss. Despite keeping the score close in the second and third sets, the Lancers could not defeat the GeeGees, falling 25-21 and 25-22. Dean helped lead the Lancers attack once again, recording 10 kills while sophomore Carleigh Bailey led the defensive end with 13 digs and five kills. The women’s team falls to 3-6 in conference play and are tied for fourth in the OUA West with the University of Western Mustangs. The women will play in a Friday night road volleyball match against the Mustangs, Nov. 29. Game-time is 7 p.m. After that the team will take a holiday break and resume play, Jan. 11 at the St. Denis Centre against the MacMaster Marauders.
Lucky Number 13: Lancers Continue Their Best Season in OUA, CIS ankurkumar Sports Intern __________________________ The last time the Lancers were fortunate to sweep the UOIT Ridgebacks at the Campus Ice Centre was in November 2011. With the team’s most successful start in school history, it should not be a surprise the team has surpassed some of the records. Four Lancers – Drew Palmer, Spencer Pommells, Isak Quakenbush, and Parker Van Buskirk – remain on this season’s roster from the 2011-2012 season and certainly made an impact this past weekend. After trailing 4-3, the Lancers rallied back with three straight unanswered
goals in the third period to retain the lead and win Nov. 21. Although team captain Drew Palmer’s goal in the first 35 seconds fuelled the Lancers’ early lead, the UOIT Ridgebacks answered back on the power play midway through the first. An exchange of goals would eventually result a persuasive lead for the Ridgebacks, even if they were up by just one. Freshman Dylan Denomme answered back 24 seconds into the third to tie the game at 3-3, but Kevin George once again put the Ridgebacks in the lead. After a successful power play goal by Ryan Green, the Lancers unleashed a fury thanks to Matt Beaudoin’s game winning
goal and eventually the empty netter. The Lancers won 6-4 on the first night, thanks to the resurgence of the Lancers in the third and the 29 saves of Lancer goalie Parker Van Buskirk. Sunday afternoon was the same story. Sophmore goaltender, Taylor Speed, stepped in for his second start – his first since the Lancer’s 7-2 win over the RMC Paladins on Nov. 1st. Speed found his second win of the season stopping 31 of 32 shots and helping the Lancers towards a 2-1 win. “The team did a good job adjusting to the game,” said Speed. “The
boys played really well in front of me. They battled and cleared shots. It was a big team win and we’re happy we got the four points this weekend.” While the Lancers have struggled on the penalty kill, they held the Ridgebacks to 0-for-6. Speed was notable for some great saves and it did not go unnoticed by head coach Kevin Hamlin. “Every team’s best penalty killer has to be their goalie,” said Hamlin. “Taylor Speed made the big saves for us when we needed him. He was the best player.” Drew Palmer netted a goal in the first game along with an assist, followed
by a second goal in the Nov. 21 game. Spencer Pommells collected his 10th goal of the season in the second game of the doubleheader to lead the Lancers and the OUA conference with 29 points, and Matt Beaudoin jumped to second in team scoring with two goals and an assist in the two games. Up next for the Lancers are the sizzling Waterloo Warriors. The Warriors will bring their four game win streak to the South Windsor Arena after stumping the Carleton Ravens – previously winners of nine straight. The Warriors have thwarted three top contenders in the OUA East during their hot streak and will seek to finally get the best of the OUA’s West.

University Helps Fight Domestic Violence By Selling Scarves Bobby-joKeats News Intern __________________________ The community is working with the university to support women suffering from abuse with a “Shine the Light” fundraising campaign. From a pancake breakfast at Applebee’s to a Purple Party at the Walkerville Brewery, events are being held locally for people to show their support. The campaign is an effort to ‘shine the light’ on domestic violence by turning cities, regions and countries purple for the month of November. Proceeds of the campaign go to Hiatus House, a local social service agency that assists families experiencing domestic violence. Tom Rolfe, Executive Director of Hiatus House, said the campaign aligns with “Woman Abuse Prevention Month,” which is November. “The purpose of the campaign is to shine the light on women abuse and this public awareness campaign as well as to let people know about our services,” said Rolfe. “It’s important for women to know that people support them and they aren’t making the decision to leave an abusive situation on their own.”
According to Rolfe, the campaign began in London just five years ago. This year, 20 communities are participating - Niagra Falls is even going as far as to light the to light the falls up with purple lights and the CN Tower in Toronto is turning purple each hour. The Womyn’s Centre at the University of Windsor is just one of many local supporters. “We are participating by selling scarves,” said PR Coordinator Em Gorman. The scarves are available for purchase at the Womyn’s Centre office on the second floor of the CAW Centre.
The colour purple was chosen because it represents courage. Wearing purple this month or sporting a purple scarf is a way to let women know they aren’t alone and others support their decision to live without violence. Melissa Silva said she recently purchased a purple scarf because she believes it’s important to show support to women who suffer from domestic violence as well as the organizations that help them. “Most victims suffer in silence and to see a purple scarf could encourage those who need help to seek it,” said Silva. “Also, others can be sup-

[Photo by // Bobby-Jo Keats] portive by purchasing a purple scarf where the funds are going to help people who need it. Tis’ the season to stay warm and if you can show your support at the same time, I think it’s a win-win for our city.” Last year the Hiatus House assisted 338 women and 227 children by means of their emergency shelter program, a 42 bed residence for victims of domestic violence. Also, their 24-hour crises line responded to 2,251 crises intervention calls. In addition to those services, the Cross-
roads program for child witnesses assisted 231 women and 112 children and the Family Court Support Worker program which supports women within the family court system, helped 126 women last year. The Women’s Fresh Start program, which is aimed at helping women transition, had 275 participants last year. “We also have a Transitional Housing Support program,” said Rolfe. “So women don’t have to come to the shelter to get service, they can be seen by a community worker who
can assist in arranging housing and connects them with other services they may need such as legal services or financial assistance. We also have a school-based program within all of Essex County which meets with young people individually at their schools and 104 young people were helped by means of that program last year.” Purple scarves can still be purchased at various locations.

lian Rops once again started up front for the second night in a row.
The Lancer women’s hockey team have split their doubleheader weekend, moving them to 8-2-2 in the OUA standings.
“They are our energy line. They came out just the way we needed them to,” said Hunter.
After surrendering a 3-1 lead to the Guelph Gryphons, the Lancers would lose 4-3 Nov. 21 on home ice for the first time this season. Despite Natalie Barrette’s first marker and her fourth point on the weekend, the defensive contribution was overshadowed by frequenting the penalty box – an aspect head coach Jim Hunter knew had to be fixed in less than 24 hours before the arrival of the Brock Badgers. “An old nemesis such as penalty minutes showed up,” Hunter said. The Lancers went to the box nine times, including a costly cross checking penalty that resulted in Gyphon Leigh Shilton narrowing the score by one. Gryphon forward, Kaitlyn Mora, tied it up her third goal of the season and Gryphone center, Jessica Pinkerton, was the lone scorer to secure the Gryphon’s comeback in the shootout. The Lancers followed up against the Brock Badgers in merciless fashion Nov. 22. Larissa Borowiec, Candice Chevalier and Jil-
It took the Lancers 1:44 to strike first. Cycling through their top three forward lines in less than two minutes, the Lancers were an offensive juggernaut, quick to humble the visiting Badgers. Halfway through the period, Lancer’s women Erinn Noseworthy and Jenny MacKnight would build upon the lead just 16 seconds apart. There were two periods left to play and it foreshadowed the incredible night ahead for Regina, Saskatchewan’s Jenny MacKnight. She would eventually complete the hat-trick but it was the first goal at 10:03 of the first period that was most memorable. “I wasn’t sure why they were keeping the puck,” said MacKnight. “I had no idea I was close to anything like that.” MacKnight scored her 100th career point in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport with that first goal. The party was just getting started, as she would score twice more. “It was a great game. It was a team win and that’s what we needed,” continued MacKnight. Last season, MacKnight became the first Lancer in school his-

sor and think of us as a good hockey team, but hopefully now they will,” explained MacKnight.

The women ended the game, and the weekend, with a 6-1 win against the Bagders.

With second place on the line, the Lancers are hopeful for redemption and build on the momentum inspired by their recent surge.

Review: Dumb and Dumber To
grantjonsson Arts Intern __________________________ Was it stupid? Yes. Was it silly? Of course. Was it funny? I laughed. Here’s the thing with comedy sequels : they almost never surpass the original. I can compare Dumb and Dumber To with Anchorman 2. With Anchorman, we knew it was never going to eclipse the original as far as quotable material and overall joke quality. However, I still went and saw it, but I went with the expectation it was just going to be okay and that is exactly what it turned out to be. I had the same experience with Dumb and Dumber To. Dumb and Dumber To picks up exactly twenty years after these two dimwits, Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne, sent a full bus of Hawaiian Tropic bikini models off and away into the distance. It also just happens to be the 20 year anniversary of the release of the original Dumb
and Dumber. What have these two guys been up to? Lloyd (Jim Carrey) admitted himself into a psychiatric facility, and Harry (Jeff Daniels) visits him every day. On his latest visit, Harry visits to tell Lloyd he will not be coming to see him anymore due to a health problem. It is there we find out Lloyd’s mental problems are all fake and he’s been playing a prank on Harry since they returned to Providence. The film takes a couple of minutes to set up the plot, but once we find out Harry has a daughter and he needs to find her in order to ask for her kidney, things pick up a bit. Most of the jokes and gags in this film are, as you would expect, silly and stupid, but enough of them hit the funny bone to make it worthwhile to watch. The biggest problem is the Farrelly
brothers focus too much on recycled humour. The funniest parts of the original came when they pushed the envelope a little and dared to do something to both shock and entertain. Nothing they do in this film is groundbreaking and I wonder if it is the result of waiting too long to get this particular sequel made. Regardless of the missteps, this movie is all about seeing Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back on screen as these love ‘em or hate ‘em idiots. Any life breathed into this film comes from them and seeing them together again shows us why the original is so beloved. They truly know the ins and outs of these characters and while this film won’t be particularly memorable, it will make you laugh and I’d say it deserves one screening.
