Olympic stealsattention frommissing actor
 Te Olympic hubbub in Vancouveris hampering police investigationsinto the disappearance of actorRichard Stabone. Constable im Fanning of the Vancouverpolice said that local media isusually invaluable in spreadinginformation and creating a buzz about a missing person. However,heavy Olympic coverage isrelegating the story to the back pages of newspapers and notgarnering as much public attentionas desired. Richard Stabone ismost famous for portraying thecharacter ‘Boner’ on the 1980sshow Growing Pains.

Ecstasy kills mainlyyoung and healthy
Fabrizio Schifano of the University of Hertfordshire in the UK recently conducted a study on fatalities where stimulant drugs were thecause of death. Te results showedthat people between the ages 16and 24 were more powerfully affected by ecstasy and that youngpeople were more susceptible tothe drug’s deadly outcomes. By compiling and comparing datafrom the National Programmeon Substance Abuse Deathsdatabase, as well as the the BritishCrime Survey, Schifano and histeam were able to conclude that victims who died from Ecstasy  were younger, healthier, and lesslikely to be known as drug users.

Straight white male privilege in CSA
CSA takes legal action against CFS
 When pamphlets from a groupcalling themselves “CSA WF”began circulating on the University of Guelph campus, Galen Fick, theCentral Student Association (CSA)local affairs commissioner, began what became a highly discussede-mail exchange with the anonymousgroup of students. Te pamphlet encouragedstudents to speak out against theCSA executives and their tactics when dealing with several key issues,most notable the recently proposedchanges to the CSA’s equitableemployment policy and the proposedStudent Help and Advocacy Centre(SHAC), a new arrangement that would eliminate the Human RightsOffice (HRO).Fick began the e-mail exchangeby requesting that those behind thepamphlet engage him in dialoguedirectly. Over the course of theexchange, the bulk of which Fick shared at a CSA board of directorsmeeting on Feb. 10, it becameapparent that those behind CSA WF were reluctant to deal withFick because of what he said was his“straight white male privilege.”One line in the e-mail fromCSA WF to Fick is reads, “Weknow of several people that have hadexperiences with you where you wereunwilling to recognize your privilegeas a straight white man whichmakes you especially inaccessibleto constructively and honestly talk about something like [equitable]employment.”According to Fick, this notionthat he is inaccessible because of aperceived privilege is one that hestruggles to appreciate.It will now be left up to a judge todecide whether University of Guelphstudents will vote this semester oncontinued membership in both thenational and provincial componentsof the Canadian Federation of Students, Canada’s largest studentbody.On Feb. 16, the Central StudentsAssociation (CSA) filed a motionto the Ontario Superior Court of  Justice requesting the court make adecision regarding the referendumson Mar. 8. Tis came after monthsof confusion regarding the statusof University of Guelph petitionsrequesting referendums, includingissues over when the petitions werereceived by the federation and the validity of student signatures.Last week, the

 Te pamphlet prominently depicted the CSA WF logo andencouraged students to speak out against the CSA executives onrecent controversial issues.
“My challenge is that I feel it’sdiscrimination to assume that basedon my skin colour, gender, or sexualorientation, I would not be able tounderstand privilege and oppression,”said Fick, who later added that“there seems to be a barrier in thatthey see me for what I look likerather than what I’m saying. It feelskind of hypocritical…I feel like I’mbeing judged on what I look like asopposed to what I’m doing.” Tose behind CSA WF explained that it is not Fick’s inherentprivilege that makes them reluctantto deal with him, but rather whatthey see as a lack of acknowledgmentof his privilege.“Tere is a huge distinctionbetween him not being dealt withbecause of him being a straight, whitemale and not being dealt with becauseof his refusal to adequately recognizehis straight white male privilege,” aCSA WF representative explainedto the
Ontarion
.According to Fick, however, he isconfused about how these individualsarrived at this particular conclusion.“I think their case is that I don’tacknowledge [my inherent privilege] which there’s no evidence of,” saidFick. “I have never stated that I deny that. I think it’s really importantto acknowledge the existence of privilege and oppression in society…[but] you have to see people for theirindividual intrinsic worth and work  with the people that you have.”According to representativesfrom CSA WF, the group’scorrespondence with Fick only solidified ideas they already heldabout his lack of approachability.“He has no interest in talkingabout our concerns but insteadthat CFS-Ontario denied theUniversity of Guelph a referendumon continued membership which was intended to be held at the endof March.On Feb. 22, less than a week after the CSA filed their motion,counsel for both CFS-National andCFS-Ontario made a motion to a judge that the Mar. 8 date shouldbe adjourned “to a date convenientfor all counsel and available for a fullday hearing with the Court in Aprilor May 2010,” according to courtdocuments. Te judge ruled that a referendumon continued membership wouldhave to happen in the same yearthe petition was circulated. A judgedecided that both parties wouldreconvene on Mar. 23 and a decision would be made then. wants to accuse us of shutting out his voice because he’s straight, white andmale,” said representatives from CSA WF. “He’s accusing us of beingoppressive while trying to convinceus to meet with him and discuss ourissues with how the CSA is beingrun…we’re not going to waste ourtime with Galen when it appearedhe’s only willing to debate whetheror not we were being oppressive.”Fick explained that his frustration with the issue stems from theinability for the two sides to comeinto discussion and try to makeimprovements.“I’m trying to engage with peopleand it feels like their getting hung-up on their perception as opposed tothe fact that I’m here and I’m tryingto engage,” said Fick. “I’ve doneas much as I can and I can’t really change that…if it’s something aboutmy gender, skin colour or sexualorientation that is a barrier for them,that is something I cannot change.It’s maybe more a disappointmentthan a frustration.” Tis, according to the CSA, stillleaves enough time for the requiredtwo weeks of campaigning prior to areferendum.“What is happening now, toensure that the students are allowed toparticipate in the democratic processquestioning continued membershipin the CFS, is submitting anaffidavit for both CFS-Nationaland CFS-Ontario to recognize thepetitions and move forward with areferendum,” said Gavin Armstrong,the CSA’s communication andcorporate affairs commissioner.In early September, studentorganizers had circulated petitionsaround campus asking students if they wished to a vote on continuedmembership in CFS-Ontario.According to CFS-Ontario bylaws,the federation must receive petitionsby registered mail, with signaturesof 10 per cent of the undergraduatepopulation six months prior tothe scheduled referendum date. Te Guelph petitions requested areferendum question be asked onMar. 29, 30 and 31 2010.CFS-Ontario told the
