TODAY'S COMIC


LAST UPDATED: Wednesday January 22, 2003 - 12:00 p.m.

Pedestrian struck at Western intersection

A terrible accident occurred just outside campus Monday evening, leaving one victim in critical condition.

According to Const. Paul Martin, spokesperson for the London Police Department, the accident occurred at approximately 7:20 p.m. just north of the Brescia University College gates, near the intersection of Lambton and Western Roads.



Western's nine elitist buddies

An elite group of universities is beginning to raise some concerns within the Canadian academic community.

Known as the Group of 10 – or G10 – its members include Western, University of Toronto, University of Alberta, University of Waterloo, Queen's University, University of British Columbia, McMaster University, McGill University, University of Montreal and Laval University.



Professors honoured nationally

Two Western professors will be receiving one of the highest honours the Canadian government bestows upon its citizens.

G. Michael Bancroft, a professor in the department of chemistry, and David Leighton, a professor at the Richard Ivey School of Business, will become Officers in the Order of Canada in a ceremony later this year.


Student sexually assaulted

A female Western student was allegedly assaulted shortly after departing from a London night club last Saturday night.

Early Sunday morning, between 1:30 and 3:30 a.m., a 19-year-old female Western student left the Drink Night Club with a male she had met that evening, said Const. Paul Martin, spokesperson for the London Police Department.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT

Told through the stories of three different women in three different decades, The Hours is much more than your average "chick flick."

The main thing that separates The Hours from the mass of silly Ya-Ya Sisterhood-esque drivel is that it has a dark side that cannot be ignored because it is depicted so stoically and forcefully.

Campus Inquisition

It’s that wonderful time of year when power hungry presidential wannabes get their friends to nominate them for the University Students’ Council presidential race.

In light of this, The Gazette asked students who they would like to see nominated and why.

“I would like to see the Cookie Monster nominated because he would make campus delicious.”
—Jessica Herlihey,
History II

“Johnny Knoxville because he would rip apart all of the retarded activist groups that wanted money.”
—Colm Sparks-Austin,
ACS II

“Eminem because not only is he hot, he speaks his mind and doesn’t give a fuck what people think. He would run things the way they should be run without sugar coating it.”
—Kim Foote,
Sociology IV
