Sex offender jumps ship

The sex offender that spurred London Police to issue a public warning has retreated back to British Columbia.

Monday evening, Daniel McIntosh, who had a history of violence against women, left his residence at a Salvation Army in London and returned to his home province.

Police had deemed McIntosh, who has a history of sexual assaults and assaults with a deadly weapon, a high risk to re-offend.

"I don't think he was too happy with police presence and the public awareness of his history – that's why he split," said Const. Tracy Swystun.

London police will notify the local authorities of his new residence, she said.

"Of course there's concern for the city he'll be moving to, but I think it's fair to say having him out of our city will be a relief to us," Swystun said.

A chance to spread propaganda

If you're looking to get your creative efforts discovered, the Arts Students' Council could give you a chance.

PROPAGANDA is an annual publication of collected students' works from all faculties put out by the Arts Students' Council, said PROPAGANDA editor Sherry Masters.

"It's a way for students to get their work out there and have their efforts published," she said.

The Arts Students' Council is accepting submissions until Dec. 10.

Students can submit their work in the drop-off box outside room 33 in University College or e-mail them to propaganda_2001_2@hotmail.com.

Maybe not the place to wear your new Gap shirt...

Tonight, Students Against Sweatshops will rock out and cut tags in an awareness event at the Grad Club.

Ottawa-based band Snailhouse will be performing and a sweatshop fashion show will take place in the middle of the show, said Selena Horrell, a member of SAS.

SAS is working with Oxfam Canada on a national campaign to persuade federal Industry Minister Brian Tobin to change legislation to require that all clothing tags disclose where the clothes were made, she said.

Horrell said the SAS will be cutting clothing tags to send to Tobin as part of campaign.

"Come out and see what your university is doing about sweatshop-made clothing on-campus and also to enjoy the rock," she said.

The event is also the kick-off to Oxfam's "Buy Nothing Day," which includes awareness activities Nov. 22-23 in the University Community Centre atrium.
