What the heck is "bling bling," anyway? For the Students' Union, it was a fundraising drive that pitted U of C 101 students in a race to raise the most money for Cystic Fibrosis research.

Almost two months after Students' Union Academic Commissioner Gavin Preston commented about commissioner remuneration, he will face a hearing on charges of breaking SU bylaws. Scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday September 10 in Council Chambers, the hearing may determine if Preston is responsible and impose sanctions, or refer the matter to a Review Board.

At issue are Vice-President Academic Rosie Nagra's allegations that Preston over-reported the number of hours he worked in June, and was hence overpaid by Nagra.
