USC presidential elections 2012

day 8: debates and demerit points

Candidates face off at debate Fearnall gets five
Jesse tahirali ediTor-in-chieF Backed by black curtains and purple lights, the University Students’ Council presidential candidates took to the stage in the Mustang Lounge yesterday morning. For two hours, the candidates responded to questions from Gazette editors and curious students—and even each other—at this year’s annual media forum. The forum differed in format from earlier debates, as candidates were able to give a rebuttal or ask a question about another candidate’s response. Candidates were then given a chance to respond to the questions and delve deeper into the issue, something Jon Silver found helpful. “I think that the debate went well,” Silver said. “We were allowed to respond to each other’s questions, but it was very constructive commentary. You need to have engagement with the candidates to differentiate yourself.” Many questions were pointed at specific candidates, and although it did open up platform points to criticism, it also gave the hopefuls a chance to clarify any misconceptions. “I think [it] allowed the candidates to elaborate on certain aspects of their platform which have been either unclear to students or just overlooked,” said Claire McArthur, who addressed the misconceptions about her wanting to implement a fall reading week. She explained that she planned to look into a single additional day off, possibly tacked on to the Thanksgiving break. When the time came to critique current USC executives, the candidates were divided. Silver and Adam Fearnall both expressed their approval for the job that Patrick Searle, vice-president of university affairs, had done advocating for students. McArthur and Logan Ross both felt Andrew Forgione, USC president, had excelled in increasing student engagement, and thus earned their nods. Toward the end of the debate, students from the audience were given an opportunity to pose a question to the candidates. Queries ranged from topics of censorship in the Gazette to the candidates overemphasizing first-year students in their platforms. “It was a great forum for people outside of the USC to be able to voice their opinions,” Ross said. “All students had a voice and everyone was equal.” To cap off the event, the candidates were each given a chance to pose a question to their fellow presidential hopefuls. Of the four questions, Silver’s was the most notable. After a few general softballs, Fearnall was made to elaborate on his criticism of current president Forgione, and was asked about the steps he would take to be accountable for his vice-president’s actions and decisions. Overall, the candidates seemed to come out of the debate feeling positive. “I think it was a good chance for all of us to showcase the things that define us as candidates. I think the questions were fair, and it was good to hear some different ones from the crowd, so I was happy with how everything went,” concluded Fearnall. —with files from Aaron Zaltzman Gloria dickie news FeaTures ediTor As of Tuesday, the race for USC president has a new reigning demerit point champion. Adam Fearnall overtook Logan Ross’ four demerit points by collecting five of his own for campaigning in an unauthorized area. The area in question was the Social Science Kiosk, which campaign members had booked for campaigning purposes, Eliot Hong, communications officer for the University Students’ Council, explained in an email. According to bylaw 2, campaigning in faculty buildings requires the approval of both the faculty president and the chief returning coordinator. “Adam’s team did not seek this approval before campaigning [and] the elections committee deemed this to be a violation,” Brianna Peniuk, chief returning coordinator for the USC, said. While Fearnall could have received a maximum penalty of 10 demerit points, the committee decided that due to mitigating cir-

cumstances, the act warranted a lesser penalty. “The booth was shut down quickly and so had less influence than it potentially could have,” Peniuk noted. “The other mitigating circumstance that the elections committee considered is that it was members of his campaign team, and Adam himself was not present.” Fearnall took the position that he and his campaign team “had a plan to get into as many faculty buildings as possible and, I think, somewhere along the line we just missed an approval.” Peniuk maintained that it was the responsibility of candidates to “be aware of the policies governing the USC elections process.” “The rule regarding campaigning in faculty buildings is clearly and explicitly stated in the bylaw,” she elaborated. “You’re never happy to get demerit points, [...] [but] we’re happy to abide by their decision,” Fearnall concluded. Fearnall will be ordered to pay $6 for each demerit point out of his bond—a total of $30.

Car accident kills 11
A fatal crash on February 6 took the lives of 11 people just outside of Stratford. The collision between an extended van and a tractor trailer occurred just north of the town of Shakespeare, at the intersection of Perth Road 107 and Line 47. “The driver was at fault—he failed to stop at the intersection,” David Rector, media relations officer with the Ontario Provincial Police’s west region, explained. Although the destination was unknown, the ten victims have been identified as migrant workers and the OPP have begun attempts to contact next-of-kin. Rector praised the officers handling the investigation. “They’re handling it very well. They’re professionals, doing their job very well. It’s safe to say they’re all very tired,” he said. “This has been a long and arduous investigation, and there is still lots to be done. It was a horrific crash—a lot of people killed in one collision. There’s ample resources in the OPP to tap into if they’re having issues dealing with it. But they’re all doing really well.” —Sean Previl

one-stop mental health
megan devlin GazeTTe sTaFF Today, Western will launch a new web page—Mental Health @ Western. The web page brings together all of Western’s mental health resources to one location. It’s a onestop shop with devoted sections for students, parents, staff and faculty that links users to counselling and other resources available at Western and in the community. Nicole Versaevel, health promotion manager for Western health services, oversaw the creation of the site. “We already do a tremendous job providing service to the campus community. The goal of the project really was to improve access, to have one place where people could find out where to go,” she said. Versaevel explained that previously, each of the three counseling departments had its own website, and there were multiple support locations across campus. Students may have had trouble deciding which service to choose over the others. The new website coordinates all resources available by placing them in one online location. Gitta Kulczycki, vice-president of resources and operations at Western, explained the university’s stress on mental health awareness has stemmed from recent

literature, as well as incidents at other universities. A suicide at Carleton University several years ago sparked an awareness among Ontario universities that safety of their students was paramount. The Ontario information and privacy commissioner even sent a letter to all Ontario universities telling them the safety of an individual was more important than any confidentiality policies they had in place. This urged universities, including Western, to ramp up their mental health services. In addition, Kulczycki explained recent reports show the demands on university students can stress

them out mentally. Kulczycki said this was what shifted the focus from treating mental illness to promoting mental healthiness. The new website is one way of further promoting mental health among Western’s community. “The take-home goal is that the university is taking a lead role in ensuring that all students or staff or faculty know where to go if they need help,” Versaevel said. The university is going to great lengths to promote the website now that it has launched. “We’ve done a lot to promote the site for parents and families of students. So often a parent didn’t know what to do or where to tell someone to go,” Versaevel explained. “We’re also promoting it to staff and faculty because they are often the first people to see a student who may be in distress or having a concern.” The website is even being advertised on WebCT, part of the multidimensional roll-out plan that will be hard for students to miss. “All the services are pretty heavily used as it is, but what we’re really trying to do is find another avenue to educate the whole campus on what to do. We reach out in any way we can, this is just another way of reaching out to people,” Gail Hutchinson, director of the Student Development Centre, said.

London the city of romance?
Amazon.ca has released their third annual list of most romantic cities in Canada, and London has made the top 20. According to John Winston, the general manager of Tourism London, there isn’t really a basis for the study, besides Amazon.ca’s sales rankings. However, Winston said the city would make a “great getaway city for couples,” adding with places like the Grand Theatre and Orchestra London there are plenty of romantic date options for this Valentine’s Day. By compiling a list of data including sales from romantic novels and Michael Bublé CDs, Amazon has determined what cities are full of love this year. London just made the cut, ranking nineteenth. London has never been marketed as a romantic city, according to Winston. “London is a very good sports destination city. We’re a very good family entertainment city, as well as music,” he said. —Hillete Warner

Great teachers rewarded
Last Saturday, the 2011 3M National Teaching Fellows launched a campaign to thank teachers who have inspired them in their careers through a series of 11 ads which will appear over the course of as many days in the Globe and Mail. The ads will also be published in the University Affairs magazine and website. The Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada are organizations supporting the campaign, along with the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education. Helen Murphy, communications officer for the AUCC, stressed the importance of this initiative, which she said works to remind people about the role teachers play in building futures for individuals, families and communities in Canada.

oUSa pushes for tuition reform
Cameron Smith GazeTTe sTaFF Tuition fees have been going up and the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance has had enough. Yesterday, OUSA submitted their proposal for tuition fee reform to the Ontario government. This came after Ontario’s tuition fees have increased five per cent on average for the last six years, making Ontario the most expensive province to attend post-secondary education in Canada. According to Tanya Blazina, senior media relations coordinator for the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, it is problematic to compare costs between schools in different provinces. “Comparing post-secondary education funding among provinces is challenging due to differences in policies and reporting practices,” Blazina explained. “These rankings are highly sensitive to enrolment patterns of provinces which may fluctuate from year to year.” Population size and enrolment rates also play an important role in determining tuition fees. “Because population growth in Ontario is higher than most other Canadian jurisdictions, when maintaining or increasing per-student rates of funding for post-secondary education, Ontario faces greater funding pressure than most other provinces,” Blazina stated. Despite this, OUSA maintains the rate of tuition increase is too high. “OUSA is advocating that tuition should not increase from where it is now, but if it must we don’t want it to increase more than inflation as measured by [Consumer Price Index],” Patrick Searle, vice-presi-

dent administration of OUSA, said. “Ontario has the highest tuition rates in the country—the higher the cost of education goes, the bigger the burden attending university or college becomes.” According to Searle, the current tuition fee system means Western students who take 3.5 or more credits are charged for 5.0. OUSA is recommending the government rescind this policy. “We are advocating that the tuition framework should require all universities to charge tuition fees on an equal per-credit basis,” Searle explained. These proposed changes may come into effect fairly soon. “With the tuition framework expiring this spring, a new one must be introduced in the coming months, and we hope to see our suggestions included in the new framework,” Searle concluded.

Opinions
Canadian films, eh?
angry amber
We are Canadian. We know what bands are Canadian, what stores are Canadian, what products are considered to be uniquely Canadian. And with Canadian bands playing on the radio all the time, why don’t we see Canadian films in our movie theatres? We first must define what makes a film “Canadian.” Does the film have to be written, produced, funded and acted by Canadians? Does it have to take place in Canada? Does it have to be specifically about Canadian culture? At the core of it, though, the film has to be mostly Canadian-made. If the majority of the funding comes from a Canadian company and the actors and directors are Canadian, then we would probably classify the film as Canadian. But there are not very many big movies that we would consider Canadian, and we don’t see a competing amount of releases in our theatres. This might be due to the fact that our film industry is somewhat divided—Quebec has its own film industry that is separate from the rest of the films created, and these pander to a specific audience. Canadian Englishspeaking films, on the other hand, struggle to compete with big-budget, American movies. Let’s face it, the American film industry is well established, and probably has more money than all of Canada combined. Sure, we can produce artistic, more fringe films but there’s no way we can consistently compete with the blockbusters. Should the government impose some sort of “minimum amount of Canadian content” that needs to be shown in theatres, similar to what is imposed on the radio? It’s clearly something that can work on other media, and if it helped preserve our culture and promote Canadian art, it might help kickstart a Canadian film industry. Canada is large in area and sparse in population, and it’s hard to say we have one distinct culture, and it would be difficult to produce something that everyone in Canada would strongly identify with. In terms of preserving our culture, film probably won’t be able to unite us and give us an image on the global scale. Maybe we don’t desperately need to churn out distinctly Canadian films—but at the very least, a little more Canadian content wouldn’t hurt. —the Gazette editorial Board amber Garratt manaGinG ediTor Growing up, I always envisioned the future being similar to The Jetsons with high-tech houses, moving sidewalks and flying cars, but as I’ve grown older, I’ve come to realize this may never be the case. Don’t get me wrong—society has come a long way in my 22 years on earth, with the advancement of bulky word processers into a thin MacBook Air and the development of land line phones into multifunctional iPhones and BlackBerries. But realistically, North America can only develop so much before we hit a wall. This wall I speak of is metaphorical, but will exist at an intersection between the advancement of our society technologically with our advancements socially. I don’t foresee North American society advancing so far that we are flying around in cars, while thousands of people in Africa are dying because of malnutrition or while clear social issues exist in Canada, such as the divide between the rich and poor. I cannot imagine a world where people in Toronto don’t need to walk anymore because there are moving sidewalks everywhere or have the ability to fly to Florida in a matter of hours in their flying cars, while across the Atlantic Ocean in Senegal people are worrying about basic health issues like con-

tracting malaria. According to the World Health Organization, in 2005 there were approximately two million cases of malaria and more than 2,000 deaths attributed to the disease just in Senegal. If this doesn’t mean much to you, just think—on average, 487 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer every day. With numbers like these, I would rather see people finding ways to combat malaria and cancer rather than spending their time and money inventing and mass producing a flying car. What benefit would a moving sidewalk or a flying car have if our society is not healthy, or people are living below the poverty line? I believe that we will continue to advance technologically, but not socially, and we will reach a breaking point—a very dangerous breaking point. In the 1989 film Back to the Future II the filmmakers predicted that by 2015 we would have hoverboards, thumbprint currency and flying cars everywhere, yet we are far away from reaching the Back to the Future II predictions and, to be honest, I don’t want to live in that particular world. My hopes for the future have changed since my childhood dreams for a Jetson-esque utopia, but I think my dreams are much crazier than a flying car. I hope for a world where a divide between the rich and the poor does not exist, for medicine to advance so that malaria, HIV and AIDS are not a daily concern for a large proportion of the population, and a world where people don’t fight over religion, money or resources—but realistically, a flying car might be more feasible.

Letter to the Editor

Need to loosen up when it comes to sex
To the Editor: February has rolled around again, and with it comes the famous sex issue of the Gazette. I enjoy reading the sex issue each year as it does bring a comical aspect to an act that is sometimes too serious, and it shows the desire for people to know what is “normal.” People constantly worry about their sexuality, sex performance, and the size of their appendages. Maybe it’s a sign about our culture that we put so much stock into this activity, which sometimes only lasts a couple of minutes. Western is filled with people who pile into gyms, and whether it be trimming fat or sculpting a perfect six-pack, people try to get their body just right to attract their desired partner. Biologists explain the desire for men to spread their seed to all the people of the earth, although that doesn’t seem to be the reason most university students have sex. Whether you’re in a relationship or not, sex seems to be important to people. Some save it for marriage, and some take an attitude of “the more, the better.” Whatever your stance on sex, I think it is something that could best be decided between you and whoever your partner(s) is, even if it’s just for a night. You won’t be stoned in Canada for being an adulterer or a homosexual, so let’s just relax a bit and stop worrying about what other people think of sex and our sex lives. Maybe that’s the way it was supposed to be anyway. —Tim Cashion

Arts&Life
Reeling in Canadian film
arts & life editor Brent Holmes delves into the struggles and successes of filmmaking and film festivals in canada
The term “Canadian film” is one that could be considered an oxymoron. With the Hollywood elephant lying to our south, it’s very easy for Canadians to become absorbed into the American culture— especially in regards to film. “Canadians don’t watch Canadian films very much,” says Phil Wilson, co-director and producer of the documentary film The West Wind, about the renowned Canadian painter Tom Thompson. “We aren’t [the kind of people who] wear their patriotism on the sleeves the way Americans and other nationalities do, we are much more cautious and careful about our expression of national pride.” The West Wind is one of the many Canadian films that will screen at the upcoming Domestic Arrivals Film Festival hosted by Museum London this weekend. This new festival, working with the Film Circuit—a non-profit branch of the Toronto International Film Festival—hopes to connect Londoners with their regional and national roots at a rate of 24 frames per second. “We have been screening Canadian films for three years on a monthly basis,” notes Dianne Pearce, Museum London’s curator of public programs. “Over the past three years we had great success, but we thought that changing it to a festival format would encourage us to reach out further and to bring in a lot of directors, actors and producers on site to talk about their films as well.” Domestic Arrivals will be screening 12 Canadian films between today and Sunday and will also be screening an educational film called The Whale exclusively for public schools in the area on February 8. The screenings will feature question and answer sessions with actors, producers, writers and directors of the films. “This is a real opportunity to see quality Canadian films in London and we don’t normally get to see Canadian film in this neck of the woods,” adds Pearce. “It’s not a high priority for the commercial cinemas. The commercial cinemas will pick up the big names.” The art of making quality Canadian films is a long and difficult one—many of the filmmakers who are showing their work at this week’s festival had to struggle in order to get financed to film and distribute their works. Opening the festival on Thursday night is Irvine Welsh’s Ecstasy, a film directed by Western graduate Rob Heydon. Irvine Welsh is a Wisconsin and another small festival in North Carolina. Both those screenings were terrific because when the festival comes to those small towns, it is a very big thing and everyone gets very excited,” Thomas says. “It was pretty amazing with those screenings how many people came out to see our little Canadian movie. It’s always really nice to play small festivals, it’s very touching.” Festival tours provide an opportunity for filmmakers to get their work into the public, but also provides them the opportunity to get feedback and find a home for their films. For Wilson, these festivals provide an opportunity to recognize Canadian artists, both in film and in visual art. The West Wind has been praised for giving Canadians permission to be proud of their country. “I think it does help when you see a film like this, it’s about such an exceptional and gifted artist who is depicting our country in bright colours. It makes you feel proud to be Canadian,” Wilson says. Since it’s the first year for the Domestic Arrivals Film Festival, Pearce is hoping it will blossom over the coming years into an important event for Londoners. “We want to offer a real film experience, but also a Canadian experience as well. These films are excellent, right up to par with the other American films, but they don’t get the same kind of airplay.” Visit museumlondon.ca for more information and tickets.

Scottish writer who wrote the novel Trainspotting, which was adapted into a film of the same name starring Ewan McGregor in 1996. Ecstasy, also an adaptation of Welsh’s works, explores the life of two drug users who struggle to understand whether they love drugs or each other. The production of the film was by no means an easy one for Heydon. “The hardest thing is just finding the money. A lot of people who watch films, they have no idea what it takes to produce a film. Even once you have the funding it might take a year to go shoot it,” Heydon says. “We made the film in Canada without a distributor and without traditional film financing sources. We didn’t have money from TeleFilm Canada and yet we persevered and got the film made.” Money is always an issue for Canadian filmmakers. For Torontobased writing and directing team Yonah Lewis and Calvin Thomas, online campaigns will soon help to provide financial resources. For their next film, The Condition of the Heart, the filmmakers are seeking donations through a kickstarter campaign. The website allows artists to find funding for their projects online. The Domestic Arrivals film festival will be near the end of a long festival run for their current film, Amy George, a film about a 13 year-old artist struggling in suburban Toronto. The film has not only screened at the Toronto International Film Festival and Rome International Film Festival, but it also won the Spirit Award at the Brooklyn Film Festival. “Every festival we have played has been drastically different.

…and stun Lakehead 7-4
Greg Colgan GazeTTe sTaFF After playing each other four times in the last three weeks, there’s no love lost between the Lakehead Thunderwolves and the Western Mustangs. In a penalty filled game, the rivalry was in full force as the Mustangs won 7-4 at Thompson Arena on Saturday night. The teams combined for 23 penalties totalling 65 minutes in penalties. “It’s always been a huge rivalry and this season we’ve played really well against them,” Keaton Turkiewicz, Mustangs forward, said. “It proves to every guy that if we can beat the second best team in our [division], we can beat anyone when we play our game.” Western won the previous three games against Lakehead, with goalie Josh Unice posting shutouts in all three. Lakehead outshot Western 41-21, but Mustangs head coach Clarke Singer was happy his team did what they had to do to win a game that he felt could’ve gone either way. “I’ve told the guys all year you’ve got to find a way to win,” Singer said. “Despite being outshot tonight, we found a way to win and obviously Josh did a great job in net.” Western jumped out to a 3-1 lead in the first period, following which, both teams scored two goals in the second period to make it 5-3. The Mustangs put the game out of reach in the third with another two goals. Western would get goals from Yashar Farmanara, Zach Harnden, Turkiewicz, Steve Reese and Jason Furlong, while Matt Caria, Trevor Gamanche, Brennan Menard and Andrew Wilkins lit the lamp for Lakehead. Western used their breakout speed to their advantage throughout the game, which frustrated Thunderwolves head coach Joel Scherban. “We weren’t very good off the rush, and they scored six goals off the rush, which is unacceptable,” Scherban said. Although this game was closer than the previous three against Western, Scherban was unimpressed with his team’s play against a potential playoff opponent. “In the regular season, Western is a better team than us. We need to be better as we head into the playoffs,” Scherban said. “We’d be fooling ourselves if we thought we deserved to win.” The Mustangs clinched first place in the Ontario University West division last week against Lakehead. Though the game was largely meaningless for Western, heading towards the playoffs, they want to keep their momentum. “We’ve got a lot of playoff time ahead of us, hopefully, and there’s a good chance we could face Lakehead,” Turkiewicz said. “We don’t want to sit back and be happy clinching first place because if we coast into the playoffs you can’t just turn a switch on.” Since clinching last week, the extra games have also allowed the Mustangs to tinker with their game before they head into the playoffs. On the weekend they used a five forward power play with Turkiewicz, Kevin Baker, Tyler Peters, Harnden and Reese, which went 4-for-18 over two games. “We always want a real effective power play come playoff time, and we’ve got a real good group of five forwards,” Singer said. “We’ve got some work to do with it, but it’s something we’re going to look at over the next couple of weeks.” Also impressive was Harnden, who has been a Lakehead killer this year. The Thunder Bay native has five goals and two assists in four games against the Thunderwolves. “It has a lot to do with them being one of the better teams in the league and we all come to the rink and want to play harder,” Harnden said. “It’s not hard to get ready for a game when you play the second best team in the conference—you want to win.” With only two games left in the regular season, the Mustangs are focusing on preparing for a long playoff run when the first round starts two weeks from now. “[Lakehead is] a real good hockey team and we’ve had their number this year, but we’re not too concerned about them,” Singer said. “We’re concerned about getting better over the next few weeks and playing hard against our first round opponent.”
