Money matters will top the agenda when Finance Minister Paul Martin visits main campus tomorrow.
At 9 a.m., Martin will be making a brief presentation regarding the state of federal finances in Conron Hall, University College Room 224, before opening up the floor to questions from students.
"It's a live and interactive event for students," said Judy Noordermeer, media relations person for Western's Communications and Public Affairs.
Noordermeer said Martin will be presenting an economic update to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance today, making tomorrow an excellent time to speak with him. She added all students are welcome to attend.
Equity Week kicked off yesterday with events planned to run all week.
"The main purpose is to raise awareness of equity issues on campus," said Rebecca Howes, equity commissioner for the University Students' Council.
Several religious and cultural clubs will be running booths in the atrium, she added, along with representatives from different services around campus such as the Pride Library and the Student Development Centre.
Cultural singing and dancing will be featured, but the highlight event will be a treasure hunt, where contestants will have to search for cultural facts from each of the booths, Howes said. Campus-donated prizes will be awarded at the end of the week.
