A 30 per cent reduction in tuition? That's what interim Leader of the New Democrat Opposition Raj Pannu will push for this November.

Tuition was just one of the issues the New Democrats hoped to get feedback on as they brought their "On the Move" campaign to the University of Calgary on Friday.

"We are doing several things today here [including] meeting with community groups and students," said Pannu. "It's a listening tour. We want to get feedback from Albertans on some of the issues we have identified."

  Daily loses lawsuitPDF files may take a moment to load

Staff at the McGill Daily were devastated to learn last week that they lost their lawsuit concerning the validity of their lease with the Students' Society of McGill University. The Quebec court ruling gave the 90-year-old paper two weeks to vacate their campus office; however, last-minute lease negotiations between the paper and SSMU may prevent the paper from moving.

"We're actively looking off campus [for space]," said Daily News Editor Ben Errett. "However, we're also in negotiations with the SSMU."

Many give much of the credit for the end of the Cold War to Gorbachev, making the applause as much an expression of relief at moving out of the nuclear shadow as an expression of satisfaction with the man himself.

  Inches from the MainlinePDF files may take a moment to load

In the tradition of Korn, Slipknot and Dope comes a band that does not compare to any of these talented bands. Slaves On Dope are mediocre at best. Their album Inches From The Mainline seems more like an attempt to shock than to entertain. The young girl at the demented doctor's office on the cover is just a glimpse of how the rest of the CD will be. The band wants to be hardcore but their attempts are comical at best.

This is Yanni's first release of new music since Tribute, and his fans will agree it has been worth the wait. In typical Yanni style, his name is in the credits five times; he personally composed, arranged, mixed and engineered the music, and played all the instruments. Unsurprisingly, the recording was done at his private studios.

Derived from a Rage Against the Machine-type mold, Downshift shouts out over grinding and distorted electric guitars. Above the simple bass lines, the lyrics bounce off each chord and fly in the opposite direction. The use of simplicity and repetition only results in a lack of variation in their six songs.
