Union Events Commissioner Oliver Ho is spearheading a campaign to collect human hair for making wigs.

Playing off of a largely different style of music than most local bands, The Mocking Shadows are confident that what sets them apart, will be exactly what puts them ahead.

"It's the kind of band you don't see everyday," begins bass player Jory Kinjo, one of seven people in the band. "We have a lot of options because we have three horns and a B-3 organ--we can adapt to many different styles."

Love, hate, jealously and betrayal. It's business as usual at the National Ballet of Canada.

The acclaimed ballet company is celebrating their bicentennial by performing Shakespeare's tragic love story, Romeo and Juliet. Although the story was originally adapted for ballet in 1785, it remained largely untouched until 1926, when it was made into a "cocktail ballet" at a Russian ballet company. Since then it has been re-choreographed more than 20 times.

Call it a psychological thriller, call it a voyage of self discovery or call it a twisted romance. Whatever it is, it's not typical of the genre.
