  StompPDF files may take a moment to load

Stomp is an extremely difficult concept to define; no one word does it justice. It's not a play. There's no story and no script, and save for the occasional holler or grunt, there's no lines. It's not a dance number. It's true, the performers move about the stage, graceful, controlled and with beautiful precision, but it's more than that. It's not a concert, as the drumming, banging, scrapping, slipping and stomping are only a part of the whole, and certainly not complete on their own.

Sounds like a good idea to me--and the Students' Union thinks so, too. On Sat., Sept. 28, your valiant student representatives will gather at the SU office in the MacEwan Student Centre to embark on their three-day house-boating retreat in Sicamous, B.C.

The estimated cost: $6,500.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada welcomes foreign students and recognizes the importance of their contribution to our academic, business and cultural communities."

"But" is what should follow this sentence from the CIC fact sheet No. 8 concerning studying in Canada.

Ever since the immigration act was changed in July 2002, Canada has decided to check on foreign students in greater detail, making the loopholes for foreign students and temporary foreign workers smaller.
