The setting is the McGill University Conference Hall in Montreal. Delegates from around the world debate intensely over global issues such as peace and security, human rights, and globalization. Is it a United Nations session in progress? Well, not quite.

This scene is from the 2005 McGill Model UN Conference, where our very own U of C team battled it out and emerged the champions over top Ivy League schools and teams from as far away as Germany, Philippines, and India.

Well that was a waste. The 30 bones we spent on a three-nippled fortune teller and her crystalline-like ball told us what we already knew would happen.

Winnipeg was the site of the latest Canada West track meet, the Cargill Indoor Games, sponsored by you guessed it... Cargill foods. As expected, the Dinos women performed well in the middle and long distance events.

  Ageism in the workplacePDF files may take a moment to load

It was with great trepidation that I prepared for my first ever corporate office party last weekend. I am the youngest employee at my office, and I am conscious of my inability to fit into the corporate mold that my 30, 40 and 50-something coworkers have had years of practice at.
