Nothing is certain except death and...
The tax man is here again. But have no fear, the student income tax clinicw will save the day.

The University Students’ Council is holding income tax clinics for students from Mar. 15 to 19 in residences, and Mar. 22 to 26 in the University Community Centre. The clinics are free to all students and run by volunteers. “All volunteers are trained by Canada Customs and Revenue Agency officers on how to file taxes,” said Geraldine Goco, the USC Income Tax Commissioner.

Every student at Western must file their taxes regardless of whether they have worked in the last year.

According to Goco, last year’s clinic filed taxes for 400 students, and this year she hopes to increase that number by holding clinics in both residences and the UCC.

More information on the USC income tax clinics can be found at www.usc.uwo.ca/tax.

Martin coming today, TODAY!
Prime Minister Paul Martin will be visiting Western today.

Martin’s visit is prompted by the opportunity to participate in a roundtable, said a spokesperson with the Prime Minister’s Office, adding the roundtable will include Martin’s parliamentary secretary and member of Parliament for London North Centre Joe Fontana, along with members of the community and the university.

The roundtable will be taking place on campus in the Great Hall at Somerville House, today at 3:45 p.m..

“He’s been travelling for a while now as prime minister,” the spokesperson said. “Right now he wants to hear what Canadians have to say.”

According to the spokesperson, the stop at Western is a part of a series of roundtables Martin has been taking part in. His next stop will be in St. Thomas. “This is his first trip to Western as prime minister,” the spokesperson added.

Topics of discussion for the roundtable will include university accessibility, research and policy and relations with the community.
