Butt Out:
The GVRD wants to impose a 100
percent ban on public smoking
Joseph Muller explains how a proposed by-law may
force Vancouverites to leave their smokes at home.
Lights out. That may be the case
for smokers throughout the city if
the Medical Health Officers of
Greater Vancouver have their way.
If the Smoke-Free Indoor Air by-law initiatives currently before the fourteen municipalities that make up the Greater
Vancouver Regional District (GVRD)
pass, people will not be allowed to smoke
anywhere indoors, including UBC establishments. Homes will be the only exception.
The idea ofthe so-called "100 percent
smoking ban" arose in response to telephone complaints from the general public.
Vancouver Medical
Health Officer
Dr. Blatherwick
said, "People have
been complaining
since we brought in
the 50 percent limitation saying, 'Why
do you think smoke
stays  in  one  place?
Don't you understand
physics Dr. Blatherwick?
If you allow 50 percent
smoking in the building
then that means that smoke
drifts into where I'm sitting
and we want you to deal with
that.'"
When Vancouver Councillor
Don Bellamy was asked about
the pre-proposal smoking complaints to Dr. Blatherwick, he commented that Blatherwick "probably
received just as many who don't
(want a ban) but he's not telling you."
Nonetheless, Dr. Blatherwick took
the complaints to the Metropolitan
Board of Health—a board made up of
elected representatives from the various
municipal boards of the GVRD—and
from them received encouragement to
pursue the possibility of a complete ban.
Blatherwick looked south to San Luis
Obispo, California, and found just such
a ban. This became the precedent for the
Vancouver initiative.
On September 12, Executive Director
of the San Luis Obispo Chamber of
Commerce, David Garth, arrived at
Vancouver's City Hall to tell councillors
of his town's experience. His trip was
funded by the Cancer Society, the Heart
and Stroke Foundation and the Lung Association.
Garth described the law as "meant to
protect the majority of the people."
Although San Luis Obispo is the only
town in North America with such a ban
in effect, the parallel to Vancouver is far
from perfect.
San Luis Obispo has 80 bar and restaurant establishments, compared to the
GVRD's 2,900. Furthermore, it has a
population of only 45,000 compared to
Vancouver's 1.6 million. And the percentage of the San Luis Obispo's population
which smokes is in the low 20's compared
with Vancouver which is in the 30 percent range.
Even in Blatherwick's view, "the
comparison isn't valid,
except       that
that's
that law, I follow it. As you can see,
people right there. Look at the rest. [Two
people were in the non-smoking area,
while approximately 20 were in the
smoking areas.] You come at night time,
I kid you not, this (the smoking area) is
all full, jam packed through there, up to
the non-smoking. And then I have to
turn people away because they're smoking? Now why should I turn people
away and their money for
one couple sitting
right

ti&&*""        which
St* smoking in bars and restaurants."
Here at the University of British Columbia, The Gallery—an AMS operated
bar and restaurant—has experienced a total ban on smoking within the past year.
General Manager Bernard Peets described the six month ban as a "disaster."
"There was a significant drop in business" Peets said. "And so to protect the
viability of the business and the employees that work there, they re-instituted the
smoking policy."
n Kitsilano, Ted's Bar and Grill has
many patrons that smoke. Speaking
with owner Mr. Asfar, made it clear
that a 100 percent smoking ban on all establishments would certainly hurt his business more significandy than it would others.
"You come here at night time," Asfar
began, "that partition there, 20 percent
non-smoking...50 percent of your restaurant has to be non-smoking. They passed
smol
I
there that
are not smoking?"
•\A\0?>S' ^e went on to ^k hnally
^ "Who's gonna go around and police
it?" Apparently 80 percent of Ted's clientele smokes.
A food supplier to Ted's commented,
"What are they going to do? Ram it
down people's throats? There's gonna
be a lot of backlash."
When Dr. Blatherwick was asked if
he thought it was reasonable to place
such a ban on a restaurant where 80 percent of patrons smoke, his response was
"yes."
"This is a health issue," Blatherwick
stated, "and we're dealing with it as a
health issue. This is an issue for those
people who work in this industry and
deal with the smoke...It's something we
think is in the broader greater good, than
immediate profits or not."
He emphasized how from his point
of view, second-hand cigarette smoke is
"class A carcinogen" thus deserving "a
fairly strenuous by-law."
The Medical Health Officer employed the Angus Reid Group Inc. to
conduct a survey of the Vancouver
population. The results of a survey of
100 people—a very small sample-found
two-thirds ofthe population were appar-
endy in favour of such a ban. This survey has been used extensively to support
the proposed ban.
When elected Vancouver Councillor
Don Bellamy was asked about the appointed Medical Health Officer's point
of view he laughed.
Speaking sarcastically, Bellamy commented on the process so far. ""We're
elected, we'll tell you how to do everything. You just listen to us.'
...cause, some politicians are not that
bright when it comes to some ofthe
economic realities of life."
Bellamy went on to say he felt
"there has not been the consul-
jidm    tation to the extent, in my opin-
dsmStk,     i°n> that there should be. And
^* when you get these opinion
polls conducted by the professionals based on a hundred people...my God!"
The survey sample of one
hundred is meant to represent Vancouver's total
population of 1.6 million.
Councillor
Bellamy's view is that
"It     just     won't
work...if they come
out there with a
broad brush and
say no smoking
period...on the out-lying
areas they got an 80 percent smoking clientele. WThat the hell are they
gonna do?"
The comparison to San Luis
Obispo he described as mixing
"apples and oranges." Further,
he described California's state-wide
ban on restaurant smoking as "non-existent."
"A new technology that I've been
hearing about that is now quite common in the United States in the form
of air interchanges" Bellamy explained,
detailing some ofthe other options. But
ultimately, "the most important of all
the points, it should be the market place
that decides, that's the bottom line."
Bellamy encouraged individuals to
discuss matters of smoke directly with
establishments they attend, rather than
pulling government into the issue.
The mayor and other councillors
were not available for comment by
press time.
Councillor Bellamy guessed that depending on the response during the
public hearings, the final vote might
well be split.
On September 28, a public hearing
will be held at City Hall. To register to
speak in person or to get information

Student Politics: CASA and CFS don't see eye to eye on anything
by Samer Muscati
OTTAWA (CUP)
In-fighting between
Canada's two national student organizations has left
the credibility of the student
movement tarnished at a time
when students are under a hail
of fire from government attacks
to post-secondary education.
With no clear, unified, national student voice, the Canadian Federation of Students
(CFS) and the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations
(CASA), have engaged in a bitter power struggle to see who
will represent the student voice
in future years, and there is no
indication of any reconciliation
in the near future.
The latest disagreement involves a "national referendum"
being organized by CASA.
Students from 20 university
campuses will be asked: "Which
approach to higher education do
you prefer: the Canadian Alliance of Student's (CASA), or the
federal government's?"
The referendum will be held
throughout October.
AMS Coordinator of External
Affairs David Borins said it is
unlikely that UBC will participate in the CASA referendum
because of the cost involved.
AMS council will make the
final decision on whether or not
to participate at the next council meeting.
Guy Caron, chairperson of
the Canadian Federation of Students (CFS), said students who
participate in the referendum
will be choosing between two
evils, since neither the government nor CASA have feasible
proposals for accessible and affordable post-secondary education.
There is no mention of any
CFS proposals in the referendum, and the 59 member-campuses of CFS will not participate
said Caron.
"The campaign sounds like a
big public-relations campaign.
What's the point in asking a
question when students are misinformed?"
However, Alex Usher, national director for CASA, said
the referendum is only one part
of a bigger campaign entitled
"Real Choices".
As part of the campaign,
CASA will be launching a discussion document on post-secondary education on September
22, and will be gathering the signatures of legislators, newspaper
editorial boards, business groups
and community organizations
who endorse the document.
The main component of the
document proposes new sources
of funding for post-secondary
education.
CASA supports the idea of a
graduate tax, by which university students contribute finan
cially to the educational system
by paying a higher rate of income tax after graduation rather
than paying up-front tuition fees.
"The members of CASA are
tired of students just saying no
and not coming up with anything constructive," said Usher.
"So we've come up with proposals that we think meet the needs
of Canadian students and universities."
The CFS is planning numerous campaigns of
their own. The main national campaign is to raise awareness on the Canada Health and
Social Transfer (CHST), and its
ramifications on post-secondary
education.
Paul Martin announced the
creation ofthe CHST last spring
as part of the Liberal
government's budget.
It will allow the federal government to save money by
lumping funding for health-care,
post-secondary education and
social assistance to the provinces.
CFS is planning two national
days of action and demonstrations to protest the CHST. The
demonstrations are planned for
October 11 and February 7.
Caron said students should
not be forced to bear the brunt
of the deficit.
"The transfer will result in
massive tuition fee increases, and
heavier debt-loads for students,"
said Caron. "The demonstration
will send a loud and clear message to the government."
Usher doesn't agree with the
CFS tactics, and said students
should try to negotiate rather
than just protest.
"The problem with the student movement is that we have
been behaving in an unscholarly
way. We don't question each
other enough or question our assumptions, and we're not always
open to new ideas," said Usher.
The rift in the student movement became apparent last January when CASA was officially
formed.
Although they share many of
the same goals, the two organizations have very different ideologies.
CFS traditionally has organized social-justice campaigns
on human rights, women's, lesbian-gay-bisexual and aboriginal
issues, while CASA's mandate
focuses strictly on educational
issues.
"It's very important to be involved in social issues," said
Caron. "It's impossible to
achieve our goal for accessible
and affordable post-secondary
education if we're not looking at
the larger perspective."
But CASA does not even
agree with the basic social justice principles the CFS is
founded on.
"Hard as it may be for some
of us in CASA to believe, there
are indeed student associations
who may prefer to be represented by an organization that
takes stands on social issues, no
matter how irrelevant to higher
education they may seem,"
wrote Usher in an internal letter
dated April 16, 1995, to the
CASA board of directors.
"The thing that galls me the most
about the CFS attitude is their belief that there must be unity in the
student movement, and we can't
have two associations. Frankly, I
haven't seen it in the student movement," said Usher.
"If you don't agree with things
and want to have a voice then what's
the option? CFS is not the only
game in town."

Gustafsen Lake: sign of things to come?
By J. Clark
With the crisis at Gustafsen
Lake ending, thankfully, with a
whimper rather than a bang,
Ovide Mercredi, Mike Harcourt
and the R.C.M.P. are breathing
a collective sigh of relief. Meanwhile the rest of us, Native and
otherwise, are left to wonder-
why? What caused this season's
Canada-wide series of native
standoffs with police.
Perhaps the best answer is
nothing.
For the last few years Native
issues have been conspicuously
absent from the national political agenda. Since the failure of
the Charlottetown Accord, federal and provincial governments
have stayed far away from any
mention of Native self-government.
Pushed by the Bloc Quebe-
cois and the Reform Party, Jean
Chretien's Liberal government
and the national media have
turned their attention to issues
such as gun control, debt management and of course, the Quebec referendum.
Not surprisingly, the silence
surrounding Native issues and
sluggish progress in land claim
disputes has left many Aboriginal people feeling frustrated.
This frustration turned to action
this summer in Douglas Lake
B.C., Ipperwash Ontario and
Gustafsen Lake.
Here in B.C., the provincial
government has continually refused to acknowledge the political nature ofthe Gustafsen Lake
dispute. B.C. Attorney General
Ujjal Dosanjh said throughout
the crisis that it was a "law enforcement issue" and that the
provincial government would
not get involved in political solutions.
Meanwhile, the mainstream
media has consistendy referred
to the Sundancers as "terrorists"
and "thugs" further margin
alizing their political grievances.
The Canadian courts have
also proved unreceptive to the
protesters and their unconventional lawyer Bruce Clark. In a
Supreme Court appearance last
Tuesday, Clark questioned Canadian jurisdiction over unceded
Indian lands and pressed for a
crown appointed review of the
issue. Supreme Court of Canada
Chief Justice Antonio Lamer
called his arguments "preposterous" and Clark himself, a disgrace to the bar.
In short, the government and
media's response to the
Gustafsen Lake crisis has not
served to address the real and
long-standing issue of Native
self-government.
Though the standoff itself has
come to a peaceful conclusion,
ignoring the legitimate grievances of Aboriginal peoples and
attempting to marginalize them
further will not prevent future
armed confrontations or solve
the deeper political problems
behind the crisis at Gustafsen
Lake.

After seeing the Gustafsen Lake site in
the vision of a native elder, Percy Rosette
approaches Lyle James, an American
rancher and the land title holder, with a
request to use it for an annual Sundance
ceremony. James reluctandy agrees.

Bruce Clark, the lawyer representing the
Sundancers, petitions Queen Elizabeth II
to establish an independent review into
Canadian jurisdiction over unceded First

After the Sundancers fence off the site to
protect it from catde,Jones and twelve to
fifteen ranch-hands attempt to serve them
with an eviction notice.
The Sundancers said Jones' men were
armed with rifles and called them "red
niggers". Jones denies the allegations or
that there was a confrontation.
June 14-July 26
Tensions rise as gunshots are reportedly
heard around Gustafsen Lake.

August 11
Sundancers Dave Penna and Ernest
Archie are arrested on unlawful fishing
charges. When their truck is searched several weapons, including an AK-47, are
found.
August 18
The situation escalates as a single shot is
aimed in the direction of a police patrol
in the woods near the site.
August 19
The RCMP flies the media to Williams
Lake and briefs them on the situation at
Gustafsen Lake.
Superintendent of the Kamloops subdivision Len Olfert says the RCMP "clearly
associate this as an act of terrorism" and
B.C.'s Attorney General Ujjal Dosanjh
insists " Gustafsen Lake has nothing to
do with Aboriginal land-claim issues".
August 24
Rosette issues a statement on behalf of
the Sundancers saying the Natives "agree
to lay down [their] arms after receiving a
guarantee of diplomatic immunity from
prosecution for all members of [the]
camp, and audiences with... Bruce Clark
and the Queen's Privy council and Gov
ernor General of Canada."
The RCMP insists on unconditional surrender and cuts off telephone communication with the camp.
August 24-August 26
Ovide Mercredi, the national chief of the
Assembly of First Nations, visits the camp
in a largely unsuccessful attempt to mediate the crisis.
August 27
Two police officers are shot at by the
Sundancers as they attempt to clear logs
from a road 1.4 km from the Native camp.
The officers are saved by their bullet proof
vests.
Mercredi criticizes both the RCMP for
their "impatience" and calls the Natives
who fired the shots "misguided".
August 28
Bruce Clark arrives at 100 Mile House
but is told by police he will not be allowed
to enter the camp. Clark reiterates his clients request for a crown appointed tribunal.
Dosanjh says political action will not be
taken on what he characterizes as a "law
enforcement issue".
August 29
Clark speaks to his clients over a police
radio phone.
August 30
Two Natives leave the camp voluntarily
and enter into police custody.
James reaches an agreement with the
Canoe Creek band to allow the Gustafsen
Lake site to be used for spiritual purposes.
August 31
Clark is allowed to enter the camp and
returns saying the Natives have been acting in self-defence. He also presents an
affidavit from Tonde Halle, a freelance
camera operator staying at the camp who
states that while the Sundancers had only
fired warning shots, the police fired di-
recdy upon the Natives who only then
returned fire. This affidavit contradicts the RCMP's version of events.
September 4
Shots are again exchanged between
natives and police. It is unclear who
initiated the incident. No one is hurt
Police establish a 200 km no-go zone
around the camp.
September5
RCMP receive four armored personnel carriers from the Canadian
Armed Forces (CAF). CAF officers
are on the scene.
September 7
A police helicopter is fired upon. Police deploy at least six vehicles carry
ing officers in camouflage and armed
with Ml 6 rifles.
RCMP Public Relations Officer Sgt
Peter Montague, reiterates the police
want to negotiate a peaceful settlement
September 11
An explosive device detonates when
a red pickup driven by three
Sundancers crosses the RCMP's restricted perimeter. The occupants of
the truck are unhurt by the blast but
after being followed by police, shots
are exchanged. Wolverine, a leader
in the camp, says three people had
been hurt but no one would be leaving.
Later that evening two men, Glen
Denault and Edward Dick, leave the
camp. There is no indication they
were involved in the shootout
September 12
Dick and Denault are charged with
trespassing related offenses.
Three more people leave the camp
and are taken into custody.
Bruce Clark appears before the Supreme Court contesting the legitimacy of that very court's jurisdiction
over unceded First Nations land.
Chief Justice Antonio lamer rejects
Clark's petition and says "in my 26
years as a judge I've never heard anything so preposterous."
September 13-September 15
Four more Natives leave the camp
and enter into police custody.
September 14
Clark is denied entrance to the camp
by police. RCMP tell him that his
clients have dismissed him.
September 16
Percy Rosette issues a statement asking medicine man John Stevens to
visit the camp. The Sundancers say
that they will leave the Gustafsen
Lake site peacefully, without acknowledging Canadian jurisdiction
over the land, if Stevens counsels
them to do so.
September 17
Twelve remaining protesters, including Wolverine and Rosette, are airlifted from the camp. Six Native
men, two Native women, two non-
Native men and two non-Native
women are taken into custody.
September 18
All those taken into custody are
charged with trespassing offences
while William Ignace, known as
Wolverine, and Jojo Ignace are
charged with attempted murder.
A video is released showing a military style RCMP camp. The crisis is
described as the largest RCMP undertaking in history.

seem to understand her troubles.
In desperation, she decides to visit
a Native elder. After listening carefully, the elder instructs the young
woman to sit beside the river for
two days and try to understand its
message.
During her observation, the girl
feels the water washing away her
troubles and sees the way it always
keeps flowing despite the rocks
and trees obstructing it.
UBC professor of Counselling
Psychology Rod McCormack,
himself a Mohawk, has heard
many similar stories of personal
healing in First Nations communities around the province.
McCormack sees the need for a
culturally specialized, holistic approach to counselling in native
communities and proposes a native oriented bachelors program
within the faculty of Counselling
psychology. Offered through the
First Nations house of learning, he
hopes that such a program will
encourage more young native persons to become qualified community counsellors.
"Because native peoples tend to
view their problems more
holistically, mainstream approaches tend not to work that
well," says McCormack. "Healing
for native peoples must incorporate the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual realms to be effective."
McCormack has found that
native peoples most commonly
identify family, community and
nature as the most effective
sources of healing. After listening
to hundreds of healing stories from
Native communities all over British Columbia, McCormack found
that very few involved seeing a
mental health professional.
"Mainstream therapies have traditionally focused on the individual
and how that individual can be
strengthened so that they feel in
control of their environment, so to
speak. Native healing, however,
has traditionally associated sickness
with isolation from the surrounding world. Traditional Native healing has focused on reconnecting
the person with their environment."
McCormack feels the role of
counsellor in Native communities
must change. Effective Native
counselors must be able to help
troubled native persons understand
their cultural connections, instead
of simply applying individual
therapy in an office. Substance
abuse, for example, might not be
treated as an addiction in the medical realm, but as a symptom of environmental disconnection.
These divergent approaches to
healing reflect the historically opposed perception of the world in
western and aboriginal cultures.
"Western civilization has
evolved with the theme of human
versus nature, where the object is
to master nature and manipulate
your environment," explains
McCormack. "This concept has
trickled down into professions like
psychology, where students first
learn the basic model of observation, prediction and control. Control is a concept that fundamentally
contradicts the native perspective
of one's interaction with their environment"
As the only Native professor of
counselling psychology in western
Canada, McCormack understands
the importance of encouraging
more young Native people to get
degrees and become counsellors in
their communities. Ofthe 250 students in the faculty, only one is
Native.
"If there had been a degree program in counselling here, I would
have taken it," says third year student, Gordon Wesley. "As a Native
person with a degree, you have a
lot of opportunities because there
is really great need for educated
Native people in Native communities. Very few of the counsellors
there today are specifically educated in that field."
Wesley agrees that a specialized
Native counselling program is required.
"Our cultural traditions are one
of the best tools in aiding the health
and well being of Native peoples."
Indian Control of Indian Education
. was the name of a 1972 national
study commissioned by Jean
Chretien, who was then minister
of Indian affairs. The study concluded that more educated teachers and counsellors of aboriginal
descent were needed in Native
communities. The Native Indian
Teacher Education Program
(NITEP) was initiated and has for
the past 22 years granted teaching
degrees to thousands of First Nations educators working today. A
similar program for First Nations
counsellors, however, has not been
initiated since.
ffRod McCormack's plan is successful, that fact may change in the
near future.

The Ubyssey Musicolumn
Blue Dog Pict - Anxiety of Influence: a nodding into...
[independent!
Who says Canadians cant make interesting and original
music? Whoever he bees, he bees a fucking liar, mate! as this
rather fractured and strange nod to the all consuming DaDa
of meaningless existence by Blue Dog Pict doth suggest
It aint all roses (or even Guns n Roses) though. There is
the odd bit of cultural claptrap that hath a marked tendency
to annoy. For example, there's a (mercifully!) brief rendition
of "Daisy Daisy, give me your answer do" which harks back
to the sort of unpleasant noises most of us make in the
shower when we think no one can hear us. This bit of musical goofing off merely serves as the overture to an otherwise excellent pop song.
There is, too, an irritating inclination towards a kind of
pop-swing sound - ground thoroughly plowed in the Big T.O.
by such bands as that one whose name once aroused the ire
of one of Toronto's more prurient elected officials (it could
only have happened in Toronto, eh?), not to mention that
other T.O. band with more Moxy than melody. Och aye, if it
weren't for these distinctly Canadian flaws, this CD would be
totally right on, Jimmy. Aye, Angus e'en wi' them, it's still
pretty bluddy guud.
Pick of the CD: I think if s 'Purgatorial Motions' for the
general weirdness of the Intro (oddly reminiscent of the
Grateful Dead's Live Dead album, whether Blue Dog Pict is
aware or H or not) The song Tainted' is my runner-up choice.
- Andy the grate
Mobb Deep - The Infamous [RCA]
Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! - It seems to be a vicious cycle that
dwells on the word Fuck. Every song has at least one Fuck
word in there, if not more, but somehow it seems quite pleasing to the ear.
With a still-air music, consistent swaying beats, and explicit lyrics, this album is just another typical case of rap
music gone bad. Though the lyrics underlay blunt political,
social, and racial statements, the style and attitude that convey these concerns need a new direction. Furthermore, employing a raunchy, osenstattous approach towards these issues, this album may well prove to lack taste and originality.
But overall this album paints the pervasive grim and bleak
reality of society, and that perhaps redeems the abusive,
explicit lyrics. Mobb Deep has the potential to do well.

They look like your average eastern Canadian metropolitan
twentysometiiings. Adam's got long
blond dreads and a renaissance
smile; Jim's stocky and wants to ride
a 'hawg'; Andrew plays guitar and
sings; and Darren doesn't talk. But
they watch Days of Our Lives and
have been on The Price is Right.
So they couldn't make it to contestants row, but these up-and-coming Ottawa natives might find fame
somewhere else.
Not that they care. "I don't think
any one of us wants to make it big,
it's more that we just want to see how
far we can take it... We just want to
be self-sufficient," drummer Adam
Luedicke confessed to The Ubyssey
just minutes before a sound check at
the Pit a couple of weeks ago.
But that's about all the band could
agree on. "Sometimes we're pop,"
Adam said, but guitarist Andrew
Kieran disagreed, describing them as
"pigeon hole power pop". And if
they're not "biker rock" - they're not
- guitarist Jim Bryson wishes they
were.
After a confusing few minutes,
Adam concluded cryptically, "We're
nothing too new, although the versatility that all four of us sing makes
us sound a bit different. We have different influences."
But it's no wonder that they can't
agree on standard answers to bland
questions. They probably haven't had
time to think about propaganda. The
big catchphrase Adam could think up
was the cherubic and pathetic "We
like to work hard." After a year and a
half of playing together, Punchbuggy
is on their third Canadian tour, including a few jaunts into the US.
"We're lucky because we've done in
a year and a half what lots
of bands don't acomplish in
three," Adam said.
There's no need for
boasting though. The
band's dossier and their
rough-hewn sound speak
for themselves. Besides a
break-neck touring schedule, Punchbuggy has played
and recorded with mentors
Treble Charger, recorded
several singles and 7-inch's
and they're soon going to
record an EP at ex-
Furnaceface meister Marty
Jones' studio.
Punchbuggy's sound is
their biggest draw. Although they admit they
sound like a lot of other acts,
they don't stop at the typical grunge-pop sound.
Punchbuggy somehow gets
above the too typical talent-
barren schlock that most
mindless university types
spend student aid bucks on,
while delivering a raucous
but entertaining mix of
tunes.
Maybe it's the Days of
Our Lives episodes that the
band waches while on tour.
Maybe their passion for the
show, and especially for
John Black's eyebrows,
finds its way into their music.
Or maybe they draw inspiration for their lyrics from the photos of Days character Marlena, supposedly plastered to the ceiling of the
Punchbuggy tourmobile. "I don't
know what my lyrics are about and
if I did I wouldn't tell anyone," Andrew admitted. "My lyrics are complete gibberish."
KRISTI GORDON PHOTO
Punchbuggy's Andrew Kieran looks just a little spooked by the Pit, doesn't he?
"They're about biking," Jim volunteered.
Punchbuggy says they've got a
lot on their plate for now, daytime
and biker jokes aside. "We're on
Shake records and for now that's
all we really want. We've got distribution in every record store in
Canada, plus some stuff in the States
and Europe. At the level we're at it's
perfect, we're in complete control,"
Adam said.
And Jim's already planning their
next record cover. "Next one's gonna
be of a big bike, a guy on a big hawg
givin' us the finger."

Jeffrey
opens today at the Varsity theatre
by Peter T. Chattaway
"Sex was never meant to be safe, negotiated,
or fatal." With those words, Jeffrey (Wings' Steven
Weber) swears off sex forever—only to gaze longingly at a passing tourist. The scene is played for
sympathetic laughs, but writer/producer Paul
Rudnick never lets you forget the very serious
subtext to his humour.
Sometimes the subtext is too serious, but
Rudnick (who co-wrote both Addams Family movies) spices his story with a bevy of wickedly funny
sketches and post-modern outtakes. Sterling (a
deliciously flamboyant Patrick Stewart) and his
partner Darius (Bryan Batt), a dim-witted dancer
firmly entrenched in the Cats chorus line, are convinced that Jeffrey needs a relationship like theirs.
Thus they try to match him up with Steve (Michael
T. Weiss), a bartender who happens to have
planted a big smoocheroo on Jeffrey when they
first met in a weight room. (It's way over the top,
but the resulting gag is one of Jeffreys funnier
moments.)
Jeffrey is attracted to Steve, whose dense
stubble (even his eyebrows seem to have a five
o'clock shadow), deep voice and hunky stature
(sort of a Stallone without the steroids) make him
the ideal poster boy for testosterone. But Steve is
HIV-positive and this scares Jeffrey away; he can't
even bring himself to share a simple dinner with
the man. Presumably this lack of communication
is responsible for their stale dialogue: when discussing the prospect of having actual sex, their
voices register an enthusiasm just a half-notch
Bryan Batt, Patrick Stewart, Steven Weber and Michael T. Weiss star in Jeffrey.
above shoppers looking for a new toastar oven.
Jeffrey's angst is played against a salacious
backdrop of flirty 12-step groups, lascivious priests
and parents eager to coach their son in the ways
of homely phone sex. Sigourney Weaver has a so-
so turn as a New Age charlatan. SNL's Kevin
Nealon, cowering under a gaudy toupee, makes
an unbilled cameo as a reporter on the Gay Pride
beat (where an unrecognizably wigged Olympia
Dukakis tells the world how happy she is for her
"pre-operative transsexual lesbian son").
Hovering somewhere above all this frenzy is
the sort of spiritual kitsch that has become part &
parcel of AIDS lore: angels in Cats suits. Mother
Theresa (Irma St. Paule) banging out Gershwin
tunes on a lounge piano, that sort of thing.
As adaptations of plays about modern gay life
go, Jeffrey is admirably more restrained in its use
of the talk-to-the-camera gimmick than, say. The
Sum of Us. But Jeffreys sometimes ploddingly didactic script is less concerned with making its
characters into real people. The whimsy floats
above the sobering social context like so much
flotsam & jetsam, but the two never connect.
Tragedy and comedy can spring from the same
soil, but Jeffrey never lets them take root together.
Swingle's Truths and Stereotypes
a complex but exhibit
Marni Swingle:
Truths and Stereotypes
at the SUB Art Gallery
until September 23
by Christopher Brayshaw
Hidden in the middle of Marni Swingle's
show is a small, mixed-media painting
called Every Exhibition Needs a Flower, a
delicate image with yellow petals and
bright green leaves.
In any other exhibition, this innocuous
painting would be totally unremarkable.
But here, the flower offers visual respite
from the brooding images that comprise
the rest of "Truths and Stereotypes":
gloomy charcoal drawings and huge paintings whose colour schemes are largely
composed of various yellows, browns and
blacks.
They are Fall colours, strangely appropriate for an autumn show and evocative
of a decay mirrored in Swingle's depictions of torturously contorted women. Their
bodies literally fray under the burden of
culturally sanctioned visions of female
beauty and the ideal female form.
Swingle's scathing indictments of gender stereotypes are hampered by her lack
of technical skill. The sheer awkwardness
of Swingle's figures and her clumsy handling of charcoal and oil paint, compromises her images' impact. In most of the
paintings and drawings on display, it's
hard to distinguish deliberate distortion
from poor drawing.
One painting. Scrub Woman, is a frontal
view of a naked, middle aged woman with
a shopping bag in each hand: a plain grocery sack in one and a bag from a classy
department store in the other. This image
identifies how the working poor are
conned into identifying with class interests and lifestyles that will never bring
them lasting happiness.
But Swingle's representation of the
scrub woman is at odds with these themes.
The woman's feet resemble hooves, and
parts of her body fall in and out of focus.
In the hands of a more technically accomplished artist, like Larry Rivers, such deliberate distortions can add expressive
power to a figurative work. Here, they seem
pretentious and awkward, and divert at
tention from the more serious questions
the work addresses.
A charcoal drawing of another middle
aged woman. Matriarch, is more successful. Here Swingle eschews stylistic distortion in favor of an easy naturalism. This
image's weight and dignity are at odds
with other drawings like Crucifixion and
Harpy, whose allegorical titles are presumably meant to compensate for their visual
ineffectiveness, and the way their distorted
figures float, against the white ofthe page.
Swingle's paintings are more accomplished than her drawings. Escape
through the Briars, is an impressive abstract: a canvas covered in oil paint, glossy
black spray paint and cut-and-pasted
pages from Italian newspapers.
This complex image, with its tangled
clumps of vegetation and heavily textured
surface, brings to mind the recent work of
American painter and printmaker Terry
Winters. More importantly, the painting
shows a surprising sensitivity to colour and
texture which is entirely absent from most
other images in Swingle's awkward, earnest show.

Linden couldn't speculate on
Tuesday how long negotiations
with the Canucks could take. "It's
pretty up in the air right now,"
he said. "They're still talking, it's
still ongoing."
Agent Don Meehan is
negotiating on his behalf, but
Linden makes the decisions.
"[Meehan] does the negotiating
and I direct which way to go,"
said Linden.
The Province reported that
Linden and Meehan had a 40

September 20 with Canucks
General Manager Pat Quinn and
negotiator George McPhee.
Linden described the discussions
as productive, but made it clear
that "we've got to get something
done or it's time to move on."
Linden is reported to be asking
for $2.5 million per year for three
years, and the Canucks have
offered him $2.3 million.
When asked by The Ubyssey
whether he thought professional
athletes were worth the salaries
they command, he replied "you'd
have to ask the owners that.
Obviously they feel that [we]
are."
Linden argued that people
chose how to spend their own
money, whether it is $50 to go
skiing at Blackcomb or going to
a Canucks game. Players' salaries
are "a contract between both
sides, no one forces anyone to do
it. I've got a family to support,"
he said.

New teams need Athletics' funding
by Wolf Depner
Some high level athletes can
only dream about representing
UBC at the varsity level, because
they play a sport that is not
supported by the athletics
department.
In order to acquire athletics
funding, most groups start by
forming an AMS club. If they are
successful enough, they can apply
to become a varsity club or team
and receive financial support
from Athletics.
UBC Athletics Director Bob
Philip is open to new ideas. "If
you do things right and make a
good case, you can probably
convince me [to provide
support]."
One group that made an
excellent case was the UBC
Women's Rugby Club. What
started off as a recreational club
three years ago has evolved into
a program with two teams
playing in Vancouver City
League Divisions I and II. The
Division I team was given varsity
status this season.
However that status doesn't
guarantee full funding. According
to co-captain and club President
Ro Nielsen, the team is struggling
to stay afloat at the moment. "Our
coaching budget is not enough to
secure anyone, never mind a
quality coach," said Nielsen.
"We have gone right to Kim
Gordon [Inter-University
Athletics Coordinator] about the
budget, and apparently the
money is just not there," said
Nielsen. Gordon was out of town
and unable to comment.
Coaching responsibilities are
currendy handled by a part-time
coach, the players and guest
coaches. Men's rugby coach
Barry Legh has been helping
search for a full-time coach, but
so far has been unsuccessful.
Nielsen is hoping "to use our
fund-raising money to entice
coaches." However, she thinks it
is unlikely the team will attract a
quality coach given its reliance
on money from donations and
club membership fees.
UBC athletics covers 50
percent of the team's travel
expenses and Philip promised
further commitments in the
future. "If these programs
[Women's rugby and hockey] are
solid and are going to stay, then
we have to be able to find more
money to do that. If 11 either come
by taking it from somewhere else
or creating new revenue," he said.
Women's ice hockey, another
relative newcomer to the varsity
club scene, also faces budgetary
constraints. Because there is httle
university level competition in
western Canada, the team plays
in a Lower Mainland league so
its travel budget is minimal.
If the team does well, it could
go to the provincial and Western
Canadian championships. "That
is going to be a problem for our
players. We are going to have to
ask them to pay for that out of
their own pocket," said Women's
Hockey Coach Laura Bennion.
Overall, Bennion is satisfied
with athletics' commitment to
her squad. "Until we rise above
the [local competition], we'll be
okay. On a club team basis, we
have a lot of money," she said.
"We can grow with what we've
got."
However, she is already
looking towards the future. "As
the team grows and gains more
legitimacy, we are certainly going
to require more funding."

Pro athletes gouge fans
by Scott Hayward
I grew up with Hockey Night
in Canada. Sports is part of my
culture and part of many people's
childhood, but money has taken
it over and that's a shame. It used
to be fun. It used to be a game,
but now it's a business that only
the rich can attend.
Players' salaries have escalated
to ridiculous heights and the
players themselves have lost
touch with the fans. How can an
athlete who makes $100,000 in
one night relate to a fan who
makes one quarter as much
working 40 hours a week for a
whole year? Players seem to have
forgotten their salary is not paid
by the owners. The owners are
merely brokers who take their cut
of the money and pass it on to
the players. The fans ultimately
pay the players' salaries.
It was once argued that players
salaries compensate for their
short careers. However many of
them now make more in one year
than most of us will make in a
lifetime. Are they worth it?
Absolutely not. Are they selfishly
looking out for their own
interests? Definitely.
The recent baseball and
hockey strikes only reinforced the
belief that pro sports is about
money, not about the sports
themselves. When the World
Series was cancelled last year, the
real losers were the fans who had
supported their teams all year.
The players showed a lack of
respect for the fans and a lack of
interest in sportsmanship and the
game itself. Lowly vendors
watched their sales plummet
while wealthy players and owners
fought over the millions pro
sports generates.
High salaries in pro sports will
have two very negative long term
effects on the industry.
First, as fans get cynical and
lose interest teams will lose
money; however, most current
players will have retired by then,
so they don't need to worry about
it. They will win, even if the game
itself loses.
Second, high salaries give
larger cities a decided advantage
because they can afford to pay
more money to get better players.
Let's face it, the Toronto Blue Jays
bought the World Series in '92
and '93, and the New York
Rangers (or was that the
New York Oilers)
bought the Stanley Cup
in 93-94. In the long
term, the small market
teams like the Winnipeg
Jets and Quebec
Nordiques have to fold
or leave town
If the smaller teams
cannot be competitive,
fans will again lose
interest. Who wants to
support a perpetual
loser, and who wants to
watch a team of
overpaid all-stars skate
over the competition
year in and year out?
Is Bure talented? Yes.
Is he worth $5 million
per year? No, and soon
fans will get tired of
Fans are willing to pay
Are salaries in
pro sports
too high?
by Wolf Depner
Are you a sports fan? If so, you
are probably well aware of the
fact that players' salaries have
escalated considerably over the
last few years.
Many fans argue current
salaries are too high. The
consequence of rising salaries has
been well documented in the past
as small market franchises move
to larger and more lucrative cities,
and rising ticket prices exclude
more and more people. Despite
all this, I have no problems with
the current high Sctlaries.
Don't get me wrong. I'm very
upset about a short stop who only
hits .220, but pulls down five
figures amount every time he
goes to bat. I'm also concerned
about families and
students not being able
to go to games
anymore.
But if I'm ever able
again, I will have no
problem shelling out
$60 to see the $20
million man Pavel Bure
and Canucks captain
Trevor Linden. Athletes
are first and foremost
entertainers and should
be paid accordingly.
Attending a hockey
game is a luxury, not a
necessity and like
anything else in our
society, you get what
you can afford to pay
, for. Not everyone can
siobhan "roantree fhoto drive a Porsche. True
TREVOR LINDEN with T-Birds coach Mike Coflin. Is      fans can still watch
paying him that much,   the Canucks' captain worth $2.5 million per year?    games on TV and read
about them in the newspaper.
No one ever complains about
David Letterman's salary. The
only difference between him and
Bure is that Letterman wears a
suit rather than a sweaty jockstrap as he steps on to the "stage"
to do his thing. How many
families can afford to attend a live
taping of Late Night?
Furthermore, if you were at the
top of your chosen profession
(whether that's plumbing, hockey
or corporate finance), wouldn't
you expect to be paid
accordingly? Both Bure and
Linden are close to the top in
their profession. The only
difference between a hockey
player and a top-notch plumber
is that the hockey player works
in a multi-billion dollar business
called pro hockey. That
difference is reflected in their
salaries.
Despite opinions to the
contrary, pro sports is a business
and like any other business, it is
governed by the laws of supply

If salaries are to be controlled,
who should set them? If Linden's
salary was to drop by $1 million
per year, the owners would be the
beneficiary, not the fans.Few
would argue that the government
should arbitrarily step into this
industry and legislate a salary cap.
It is the fans who are willing to
spend their money on pro sports
that have made salaries what they
are today. Salaries in pro sports
will not drop until the fans decide
that the entertainment is not
worthy of their money.

The Ubyssey opinion
Rabid enthusiasm: get involved!
You do realize, don't you, that three weeks of
school have whizzed by already? As this paper
was going to press, there was only one day left in
the Clubs Days fiesta that filled the SUB to
capacity. We have already passed through the
equinox and are now spiralling towards the dead
of winter.
Time slips by pretty fast. The campus is
aquiver with possibilities just waiting to be exploited, flowers begging for hummingbirds,
tabulae rasae just starving for inscriptions. If you
don't hop on the train now, you may  someday
find yourself wistfully beating your head against
the tracks.
All this is just our long-winded way of saying:
Get Involved]
Yes, it's a common theme, but if the student
council and the student paper can actually agree
on this one point (however general its wording)
one might argue that it is a truism of truly momentous significance. It is an irresistible force no

manifesto can deny.
The simple fact is, university is about more
than attending classes and getting your sheepskin
(diploma, that is). UBC is a campus seething with
life and activity. Unfortunately, if one never visits
the world outside that narrow strip of land between the bus loop and the lecture hall, you'll
miss that excitement and vitality.
Speaking from our own point of view, The
Ubyssey is currently populated by people who Got
Involved in the paper the day they first started
classes here, people who Got Involved only after
years of hemming and hawing (and now wonder
why they waited), and people who fall somewhere
in between. This paper doesn't happen by itself—
much as we often wish it would—and it is because
people Got Involved that you hold this issue in
your hands right now.
Or, at the risk of coddling up to our neighbours
on the 2nd floor of SUB, the reason some of you
had the opportunity to see the Star Wars trilogy
during these last few Clubs Days is because some
students Got Involved and organized the show
for themselves and the other students on this
campus.
But if you think reading the paper or watching
the show is fun, just imagine the excitement that
belongs to those people who Got Involved. Edit a
newspaper, manage a theatre, host a radio show
on CiTR...the power rush can be immense. For
some these experiences are the first step to full-
fledged careers. For others these experiences are
just a barrel of laughs that could never have
occurred anywhere in the post-university world.
And so we ring the anthem once again: Get
Involved. Write for the paper, join a club—hell, if
you can't find a club that suits your interests, get
nine friends and start one. Set your classes aside
for a spell and do something Interesting. Who
knows? It just may be the reason you choose to
come back.

Dean Grace
misses point
If Dean Grace was quoted correctly in your Sept. 1 issue, his
contemptuous dismissal of the
vote of the Faculty of Arts calling for the reopening of graduate admissions in Political Science is quite surprising. Regardless of how many individuals
voted at a particular meeting, this
resolution was the collective
statement of the largest Faculty
at UBC. The implication that
these faculty members are dealing with an issue that doesn't really concern them is false: most,
and perhaps all, of the people
voting at that meeting are also
members of the Faculty of
Graduate Studies. Last, the action urged in the resolution has
also been publicly endorsed by:
the Dean, Heads, Directors, and
Program Chairs in the Faculty of
Arts; the Department of Psychology; the Executive of the UBC
Faculty Association; the BC Civil
Liberties Association; the National Executive as well as the BC
Chapter of the Society for Academic Freedom and Scholarship;
and the National Executive ofthe
Canadian Association of University Teachers.   In addition, a
number of UBC departments
and many individuals have communicated privately with the
administration, urging it to rescind the suspension of admissions.
To ignore this wave of opinion
and characterize the message as
"only a statement of opinion of
97 members" of the Faculty of
Arts seems to miss the point quite
dramatically.
Peter Suedfeld
Professor of Psychology
UBC: The
Imperial Design
Highway work now taking
place on three of UBC's four perimeters suggests that the Greater
Campus Plan of 1993—it envisions "a mature state" (p.iii) status for the University in less than
three decades-is right on schedule. Road access and road upgrading are next on the agenda
(Plan, "Mid-Range Stage").
The most immediate highway
action is on University Boulevard, where a B.C. Ministry recendy attempted wholesale destruction ofthe Boulevard's bordering maple trees, and then returned to make a two-day survey
of access points into residential
areas to the south.
A second site of highway activity is the section of Southwest
Marine Drive stretching from
Camosun Street to the UBC border. Here another work crew,
this time from the GVRD, has
been renewing manhole casings,
bull-dozing large patches of land
on the west side of the highway
to accommodate the work. Co-
incidentally, the public has now
learned that the Vancouver Traffic Commission hopes to "widen
a 5.5 km stretch between
Granville Street and the University Endowment Lands" (Vancouver Courier, Sept. 13).
On a third front, most worrying of all, is the widening of east-
west access lanes at Dunbar
Street and 25th Avenue, on a
dual-carriage road that ends
three blocks west at the Crown
Street entrance to Pacific Spirit
Park's famous Camosun Bog.
This road system, being upgraded to highway status west
from Dunbar Street, points inevitably toward an already existing
powerline route from Crown
Street to UBC's south campus-
ready made for a through-way.
All of the road activity is directed at development in the
south end of the campus, where
UBC plans call for stripping the
forest and constructing market
housing/research facilities. This
kind of development, extensive
in nature, demands additional
access routes from west and east
of UBC's south end, and it further demands additional highway-level "corridors" to the city
and beyond.
A UBC development plan that
is predicated on fast highway
corridors through neighbouring
communities and that endorses
the University as a political state
in its own right, give us chill prevision of the corporate future,
and speaks of what the University cannot any longer provide
of thoughtful understanding.

Thanks boys
I would like to say thank you
to the little boys who trashed the
UBC Women's Centre last week.
In doing so, you have totally justified the existence of the centre
to any naysayers.
Why do we need a women-
only space at UBC? Obviously,
so we can get away from foolish
little boys like you.

The Ubyssey
Friday, September 22,1995 opinion
Whoa dude! Young Reformer rolls his own...
Should Canadians have the
right to smoke Marijuana - or
even harder drugs? This is an
important question. We at the
Young Reformers Club of
UBC have opinions on the
matter, and so does our "parent" group, the Reform Party
of Canada (RPC).
Preston Manning, the leader
of the Reform Party, recently
came down against the legalization of Marijuana ("Return of
death penalty urged", The Vancouver Sun, Thursday, September 14, p. A4). Said Manning:
"We should be headed in the
opposite direction. The less
chemical dependence there is
- not just marijuana, but alcohol and nicotine — the healthier
we're going to be." So obviously, that's what the Young
Reformers believe, right?
Wrong.
To make clear our position,
and why we believe it, you
have to understand something about the RPC. It is far
from monolithic. In fact, it's
divided into roughly two
camps: the conservatives (like
Manning), and the libertarians (like us). But unlike conservatives, who believe in
having economic and political liberty but also having
social control, or socialists,
who believe in having social
liberty but also having economic - and political — controls, libertarians believe in
social, political and economic
freedom. We believe that each
is indispensable to a truly free
society.
Why should we talk about
dry, sterile ideological differences? Because we believe
that the war on drugs is a war
over social
freedom and
liberty. And
to understand
that radical
statement,
you have to
understand
why we believe that. If
liberty means
being able to make one's own
choices in life, shouldn't we be
able to smoke, eat, or drink
whatever we like — even if it
isn't good for us? I would
daresay that freedom, liberty,
call it what you will means being a responsible adult — believing that it is within the capacity of the vast majority of
people to make wise decisions
over their own lives. So the
war on drugs is really about
by
John Weintraub
whether or not Canadians are
adults, or idiots. This selfsame war is one which tells
people that they cannot manage their own affairs, that they
must have the hand of Big
Brother (the State) look after
them.
Now, I am quite sure you
expected either (1) a lecture
on how Pot is evil, or (2) all
the usual arguments that pot
is not dangerous. But the first
argument is
conservative
in nature —
and we (or at
least, most of
us) are not
conservative.
As for the second point, it's
moot. Even if
pot were dangerous, why is the State telling us that we shouldn't
smoke it? Remember too, this
is the same State that allows
you jump out of an airplane
at 5,000 with ten pounds of
silk on your back, but wants
to guard you against the evils
of wacky tabacky. Double
standards, anyone?
When Mark Emery came to
UBC on Wednesday Sept 13th
to discuss Pot, one of the au-
Tremble, Unidentified Swine!
The Inside UBQ the student calendar and handbook produced and
distributed by the AMS, are finally
in the hands of students. For three
weeks the book had been about as
elusive as the McEwen Report until
its mass distribution during Clubs
Days. As eager students crowded
the tables, fighting desperately for
copies, those who had survived the
fray began to flip through this guide
to University and the AMS.
Most stopped on page 64, their
attention caught by a title that
loomed threateningly in red: "Tremble Hetero Swine!" On reading the
article that follows, the vast majority
quickly realized that the tide had little to do with the article, one that
addressed the issue of having to live
as a member of a society that divides
itself into constructed categories
based on the gender of sexual partners. Though a number of people
understood the reference being
made in the tide, most simply dismissed the tide as an effective attention catcher, while others took
offense. Unfortunately, almost everyone flipping through the Inside
UBC thought that the article was
written by Gays, Lesbians, and Bisexuals of UBC. This is not the case.
When the editor ofthe Inside UBC
approached me to submit a piece
on being out, I assumed that, as in
previous years, the authors of the
articles would be identified. In an
exercise of editorial discretion, the
editor chose not to include the
names of the authors in the articles
that were submitted. Had I been
identified as the author in the publication, as I had assumed, then it
would have been apparent that the
comments and opinions expressed
were mine and not those of
GLBUBC. I do not claim to speak
for the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and
Transgendered community at UBC,
only myself.
The tide, "Tremble Hetero Swine",
was the working tide when the article was forwarded to the editor as I
had not come up with a "catchy" tide at the time of writing. I do not
regret choosing the tide, but I do regret failing to provide the context for
that quotation and regret the fact that
the article was perceived to have writ-
Perspective
by
Craig Bavis
ten by GLBUBC. The tide is taken
from a line in an article called ihe
Homoerotic Order that originally appeared in Boston's Gay Community
News in 1989: "Tremble, hetero
swine, when we appear before you
without our masks." On reading The
Homoerotic Order, it is immediately
apparent that the author is spoofing
the right-wing conservative attitude
that there is a "gay agenda" by conjuring up a supposed manifesto of
radicals queers. It mocks the theory
that gays have a secret plan to convert the heterosexuals of the world
and destroy the "family values" ofthe
traditional way of life. What is ironic
is that the spoof was taken by a right-
wing political magazine, New Dimensions, as a serious statement of what
the attitudes of gays actually is. The
right failed to realize that it was being mocked and took what was intended to be a spoof as an accurate
articulation of the gay community
and the "gay agenda."
For those of you that wonder if
there really is "gay agenda," there is.
It's right there on pages 64 and 65 of
your Inside UBC: The "gay agenda"
is to remove the stigma attached to
those social constructions of homo
and heterosexuality. Despite the considerable flak that I've taken, I do not
regret forwarding the tide that I did.
For all the negative comments that
I've received over the tide, there have
been an equal number of positive
ones. People that would have
skipped over an article tided "Being
Out" stopped to read what I had to
say and found it interesting and encountered a viewpoint that they
would not have normally been exposed to.
If there is one thing that I've
learned this month, from this experience, the McEwen debate, and the
Nubyssey spoof, it's that framing the
context of your statements and identifying attitudes correcdy is a vital and
necessary responsibility. Now that
you know the context of the tide, I
still expect that a few are going to be
offended. Fair enough, just realize
that it's me that's offending you and
not GLBUBC.
The editor of the Inside UBC
and I both profoundly apologize to everyone at Gays, Lesbians, and Bisexuals of UBC for
the unfortunate misunderstanding that resulted in my not being attributed as the author of
the article.
dience participants got upset.
He didn't want to hear about
all that stuff that had nothing
to do with Pot; stuff like government tyranny, the oppression of one million pot-smokers, etc. But what's the point
of being able to be free to
smoke pot, if the rest of the
time, from morning till night,
the government has its hand
in your life? If you are a slave,
would you toke up for some
fun, or speak up for your freedom?
You see, that is the real issue about the legalization of
Marijuana. It isn't about the
right to toke up; it's about the
inherent right of all of us to
live as free women and men,
free of the hand of the State,
and state coercion; free of
"Leviathan", as Thomas
Hobbes called it.
Thus the battle for the control of substances - marijuana, tobacco, alcohol, and
others — is really and truly a
battle for freedom for all of us
to make our own decisions.
So, for the sake of freedom, it
doesn't matter if the issue is
pot, or seat-belts, or the deficit, or adult sexuality. For anyone to state that they and they
alone know what's best for
others means that sooner or
later you will lose your liberty.
So, we in the YRCUBC may
get yelled at by the folks in
Calgary - RPC's national
headquarters - for our stance,
but that's a risk they take in advocating freedom of speech.
Now if only they'd advocate
the right to smoke up, I'd be
a lot happier, and we all might
even be a bit freer.

11 news
Grace under fire at Senate meeting
by Matt Thompson
Last Wednesday's university
Senate meeting opened a new
front in the ongoing McEwen
Report battle.
Acting Head of Political
Science David Elkins delivered
a speech critical of both the
Report and the university's
actions, while the Dean of
Graduate Studies John Grace
defended his decision to suspend
graduate admissions to the
department.
Senate also received notice of
a motion asking them to rescind
Grace's decision and effectively
reopen admissions to the
department.
Reading from a lengthy
prepared statement, Elkins spoke
of the "impossible situation" his
"deeply divided" department
finds itself in.
"Not only have we been
accused of many failings, our
efforts at reform have often been
portrayed as proving the very
defects we endeavored to
eliminate," he said.
"This puts us in a no-win
situation. If we do little, we are
seen as intransigent; if we
undertake major changes, this
proves we have problems."
Elkins called on the Senate, as
the university's chief academic
body, to "exercise leadership in
resolving the tragic situation in
which [his] department and the
entire University now find
themselves."
Elkins defended the
department's record on equity
reform, and urged that the
decision to lift the embargo on
graduate admissions be made on
the basis of "good faith efforts"
rather than waiting for
departmental reforms to be
completely in place.
"I submit that we have already
demonstrated much good faith
based on our progress to date,"
he said. "Thus, the time to lift the
sanction is now rather than in a
few weeks or months."
Speaking in response to
Elkins, the dean of graduate
studies defended his decision to
close admissions and warned that
lifting the suspension would send
a negative message to students.
"The suspension has
crystallized the attention of the
department on the issues that
need to be considered," Grace
argued. Grace feared lifting the
embargo would potentially take
pressure off the department to
affect reform.
The dean acknowledged that
McEwen's report was not
without flaws, but said it oudined
serious problems that could not
be ignored.
Grace challenged Elkins'
claim that the political science
department had made positive
steps toward equity prior to
McEwen's inquiry, citing the
department's "unresponsiveness"
to graduate student complaints of
racism and sexism within the
department dating back to the
Fall of 1993.
The dean also told Senate that
with one or two possible
exceptions, the suspension
imposed last
June has yet to
seriously affect
admissions to
the department;
admissions for
the 1995 academic year had
been made prior
to the Report's release and
students seeking admission for
next year would not be admitted
before February 1996.
"The suspension is a symbolic
act," Grace said.
In a progress report submitted
to the Senate, Grace said he was
hopeful  the  suspension  on
"This puts us in a no-win situation. If we do
little, we are seen as intransigent; if we
undertake major changes, this proves we have
problems."
Acting Poli. Sci. Dept. Head
David Elkins
admissions could be lifted in time
for new students to be admitted
to the program in the new year.
Grace also reported that the
thirteen member advisory
committee formed to advise him
on equity issues is currently
monitoring the steps being taking
in the political science
department,
and will make
recommendations on the
criteria used to
decide when
the suspension
can be lifted.
The Senate
was also presented with a memo
from Vice-President Daniel
Birch.
Birch   reported   that   the
university's Equity Office had
received four complaints as of
mid-September from students of
possible retaliation related to
their involvement in the
McEwen Report.
Two students reported
receiving anonymous, harassing
phone calls, one student
complained about another
student's behavior and one
student complained about the
conduct of a faculty member.
The motion to rescind the
suspension on graduate
admissions in political science
will appear on the Senate's
October 18 agenda.
