In keeping with our reckless, devil-may-careimage, our of-fice has absolutely no concrete information on the
’sformative years readily available. What follows is the storythat’s been passed down from editor to editor for over fortyyears.In the late 1950s, the University of Regina planned the con-struction of several new buildings on the campus grounds.One of these proposed buildings was a bell tower on the aca-demic green. If you look out on the academic green today,the first thing you’ll notice is that it has absolutely nothingresembling a bell tower.The University never got a bell tower, but what it did getwas the
 ,anewspaper that serves as a symbolic belltower on campus, a loud and clear voice belonging to eachand every student.

Regina’s Seedy Saturday  brought together experts,gar-deners,local business owners,and organizations,all lookingforward to the start of springand the planting season.Gardening is more than justgrowing food,its about grow-ing a community.Nearly all of our campusteams made it past the regular season and earned post-sea-son berths this year.All exceptfor one sport,in which nei-ther the men's nor the women's team made the play-offs.I'm not going to nameanynames:volleyball.Continuing Regina's heritageof tearing down its heritage,the Board of Education votedto tear down and rebuild the100 year old ConnaughtSchool despite outcryfromthe community. With the URSUelection under- way,it might be good to re-flect on why students should be running for a position withURSU.The slate “Students for Students”seems to get thateven though their name is ter-rible.No,wait,that’s just a ter-rible name and I can’t get over it.Anyway,here’s some adviceif you’re a candidate.

‘Pollock not asked to resign’
Controversy surrounding vice-president’s resignation
University of Regina President,Vianne Timmons, has said thatBarbara Pollock was “absolutelynot asked to resign,” by universityadministration.Pollock, who served as the Uof R’s vice-president of externalrelations for over a decade, sur-prisingly resigned last week topursue other professional av-enues. President Timmons hassaid that Pollock’s position willnot be filled. In the interim,Pollock’s responsibilities will beredistributed among the staff andthe remaining vice-presidents –who will report directly toTimmons.The news comes after monthsof student groups and U of R fac-ulty members raising concernsabout “bloated” administrativecosts in the face of a looming budget crunch. Admin salariescost the U of R approximately $44million in 2011 – a statistic thathas often overshadowed theprovincial government’s decisionto slash millions from post-sec-ondary budgets.“I am waiting to see what theprovincial budget is like,”Timmons said. “I have asked fac-ulty to look into every single posi-tion very carefully that becomesvacant, and I am doing the same.I’m going to take this as an op-portunity to look into the entireexternal relations area and see if we arebeing as efficient as we canwithin it.”Timmons noted that she did-n’t necessarily think therewas “fatto be trimmed” in terms of admin-istrative and faculty positions, butthat the U of R simply has to takethe opportunities to do what theycan.Student-run organizations,such as the University of ReginaStudents’ Union and CFSSaskatchewan, have hailed the de-cision as a victory for studentsacross the province. Despite uni-versity statements to the contrary,many students across campus be-lieve this was a calculated move toappease the masses.“It is a huge win for us,” saidNathan Sgrazzutti, URSU presi-dent. “I think that the vice-presi-dents knew that someone wasgoing to have to leave. The easiestway to do that, without steppingon toes of course, was to look tothe person who already has an-other path in life to travel down.Personally, I believe that Barb wasthe one who said, ‘Maybe I should be the one that goes.’ But, I think that everyone knew that someonewas going to have to leave.”University administration be-gan to receive tremendous pres-surefrom student groups afterCBC Saskatchewan made theirsalaries public on Dec. 10 of lastyear.“Strategically,this move is smart,”Sgrazzutti said. “It looks goodthat the position isn’t filled, itlooks good that the administra-tion didn’t ask her to resign, but inthe grand scheme of things thishas no impact on the budget prob-lems of this university. The realissue hereis how much money weare spending on these raises, year-after-year.“The only reason Barbstepped down is as a PR move be-cause they’re backed into a cor-ner.”President Timmons has de-nied accusations that Pollock waspressured in any way to resign,or that her resignation was relatedtothe IPAC-CO2 controversy thatmade headlines several weeksago.“This was not a public rela-tions move by any means,”Timmons said. “This is somethingthat we will be doing all the time.When a position becomes vacantwe will examine the position andsee if we can distribute things dif-ferently.”“It is unfortunate when some-one like Barb moves on that peo-ple characterize it in a way thatdoesn’t honour the contributionsthat they have made to this insti-tution.”

South Korea began to break awayat the gender gap in politicsMonday, Feb. 25, when the coun-try elected its first female presi-dent, Park Geun-hye. Park is thedaughter of the country’s formermilitary ruler, Park Chung-hee.The election, which was greetedwith an unusually high voterturnout, granted Park a narrowvictory against her liberal rival,makng her the eleventh presidentof the country.In her victoryspeech, Park addressed her goalof wanting to heal a “divided so-ciety.”Women earn nearly 40 percent less than men in South Korea,according to the Organization of Economic Cooperation andDevelopment, whereSouth Koreais among the 26 member nations.Canada has only had one fe-male Prime Minister, KimCampbell, who was appointed tothe position in 1993, replacing re-tired leader Brian Mulroney. Herrun was short lived after she wasdefated in the Federal elections byHedy Fry in the same year.In the 2011federal election inCanada, a record 76 women wereseated in Parliament, meaningthat for the first time, womenmade up about one quarter of theHouse of Commons. Despite this,the ratio is under the 30 per centmark that identifies as having sig-nificant representation. ThoughCanada is increasing its femalerepresentation in politics, thecountry sits 52nd in the world forfemale representation in politicaloffice.According to the UnitedNations, the worldwide averageof women make up only 19.5 percent of all parliamentarians. From1960 to 2009, about 71 womenfrom 52 countries have been na-tional leaders.Regina has had only one fe-male mayor, Doreen Hamilton, in1988. While she only served as in-terim mayor,Hamilton went onto become an MLAfor the ReginaWascana Plains region.Ward7city councillor,SharronBryce, believes that while therehas been progress, it’s still harderfor women to get into politics.“[For] a lot of women, their prior-ities are children, and raising chil-dren, and it’s been like that sincethe beginning of time, and it’s re-ally hard to step away from thatand have a career ... it’s just thatwe end up being the primary care-givers and that sometimes blocksus wanting to spend a lot of timeaway from the home. With some-thing like city council, that takesup a lot of evenings and week-ends with a lot of meetings.”Bryce does see a bright futurefor women entering into politicsthough, as a slow but importantchange continues to move for-ward. First elected to City Councilin 2003, Bryce says change is on itsway.“Women are out in the work-force, of course, and that’s chang-ing people’s outlook on women.When I was elected to city council,Iwas the only woman on council, but for the past couple of otherterms, there has been one otherwoman.”Bryce left offwith some en-couraging advice for womenthinking of going into politics oneday.“If it’s something that inter-ests them I think they should bethe voice of the community and Ithink they should go for it. I reallythink we need more women inpolitics, and I think sometimes we bring a perspective that is freshand not always thought about.”
