Fat asses no longer tolerated on campus
There are still a few days for students at Western to enjoy free access to Western Sports and Recreation facilities as a part of the fourth annual Summer Active Campaign, said Sue Garcia, co-ordinator for the event.

The event is presented in conjunction with Active Ontario and Health Canada, Garcia said. “They encourage people to do stuff, so the Western facilities open up for two weeks.”

Anyone, including students, will have the opportunity to use the weight and cardio rooms, along with various drop-in classes, aerobics and use of the swimming pool, she explained.

Participants in the program will also be able to enter a draw that will include prizes from Hawaiian Tropic, products from The BookStore, memberships to Western Sports and Recreation and gift certificates, she added.

Garcia also emphasized the facilities are open to all and the program ends on June 13.

Wannabe feds to argue on Concrete Beach
Campus summer sunbathers beware! Federal politicians are going to be soaking up some sun on the Concrete Beach and calling each other names.

The federal electoral candidates for London North-Centre will be attending a debate on June 21 at 1 p.m. under the pavilion on the Concrete Beach, said University Students’ Council VP-education Alison Forbes, adding the event will also be live-to-air on CHRW 94.9 FM.

“The focus will of course be on post-secondary education and why it should be important in the upcoming election,” she said.

The debate will be moderated by Huron University College political science professor Paul Nesbitt-Larking and questions for the candidates will be fielded be an expert panel and from the audience.

“All of this is based on the Think Education campaign by [the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations],” Forbes said. “What we’re really working on is not just to get students to vote, but to get the general public aware of post-secondary issues.”

Forbes encouraged students to visit www.thinkeducation.ca for details about the election and post-secondary education.
