More space for spacey biz kids

Ivey students will be one storey closer to the stars when construction on the business school is completed in January.

The addition of a third floor will create the new Lawrence National Centre for Policy and Management, formerly known as the National Centre for Management Research and Development, said Ian Ross, senior director of administration at the Richard Ivey School of Business.

The new floor will help alleviate crowding in existing buildings, Ross said, adding the number of Ivey students has doubled in the last three years.

Construction includes the enclosure of the original Ivey school building with the new Lawrence Centre to create an atrium.

"When the building was designed, it was designed to add an additional floor," Ross said. "[Contractors] are working really hard at the moment to get it closed in before it snows."

The Lawrence Centre is named after Jack Lawrence, an Ivey alumnus who donated $3.7 million to the construction fund.

Goodbye Canada - we hardly knew ya

In the opinion of one former deputy prime minister - Canada's goose is cooked.

Paul Hellyer, who held office under Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson, will deliver a speech entitled, "The Demise of Canadian Sovereignty in a world of Terrorism and Financial Globalization" tonight at 7 p.m. in Room IR40 of the Richard Ivey School of Business.

"[Hellyer] will be voicing grave concerns for all Canadians. Canada will not be able to survive under global trade agreements. Our sovereignty will be even more threatened by the United States due to the [war against] terrorism," said event organizer Jesse Greener, VP-external for the Society of Graduate Students.

Hellyer's commentary will be based on his book, Goodbye Canada, which focuses on the inner-workings of the world's central banks and their threat to the sovereignty of nations such as Canada, Greener said.

Hellyer's comments will also dissect some recent federal government policies that had negative impacts on Canada and international arrangements like the North American Free Trade Agreement.
