Tattoo you

Western's United Way fundraising continues today with a body art extravaganza inside of the University Community Centre atrium.

University Students' Council United Way commissioner Meetah Shah and her committee, will be applying a variety of animals, Chinese symbols and other drawings to participants in the charity event.

"The henna dye is a natural extract, like a mud, that is drawn on any part of the body. After the art dries and you wash the dye off, you're left with an orange or red design that lasts up to three weeks," Shah explained.

The henna "tattooing" session will run from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and all are welcome to participate. Tattoos start at $3 and become more expensive, depending on the size and detail. All proceeds will go toward Western's United Way effort.


Hail to the chief

At 3 p.m. today, London will have a new chief of police.

The London police services board has scheduled a press conference at the Spencer Hall Conference Centre.

In a field that began with 40 candidates, the selection process has eliminated all but two unnamed hopefuls who are vying for the position. The search began when Julian Fantino vacated the position last August to take the helm as chief of the York Region police.
