Manley visits Mustangs stable

It's not often that federal security guards can be found inside the office of the University Students' Council – but yesterday's visitor required just such a precaution.

Yesterday, John Manley, Finance Minister, Deputy Prime Minister and potential Liberal leadership candidate, made a brief appearance in the USC office inside the University Community Centre, to engage in a post-budget meeting with council members, including USC President Chris Sinal and some of the Board of Directors.



Twelve students battle to become Yeoman's bitches

Twelve candidates have emerged to battle for a spot on next year's University Students' Council Board of Directors.

According to Brad Nicpon, USC speaker and chief returning officer of the USC VP-elections, this year's elections are very encouraging because there is a significant number of candidates.



Riding in cars with drunk drivers

Not many people are foolish enough to drink and drive anymore, but many teenagers still get into cars driven by their drunk friends.

With Canadians being confronted with a string of bitterly cold, winter weather, many people may be wondering what happened to global warming.

"Global warming is a slow but consistent increase in recorded global temperatures over the past 100 to 150 years," explained Brian Luckman, geography professor at Western. He said many factors affect the Earth's climate, including the sun's energy output, ocean circulation and volcanic eruptions.
