Project Green Light to Rio '92
Postcard to Rio: greetings to volunteers
by Martin Chester
VANCOUVER (CUP)—While
government officials prepare for
the UNCED Earth Summit in
Rio De Janeiro this spring, a small
group of Canadians are working
to ensure the roots of the conference are remembered.
The Canadians forming
Project Green Light to Rio '92 will
visit universities across Canada
to inform students about UNCED,
the United Nations Conference
on Environment and Development, and collect signatures on
an €dght-foot tall mural by Patrice
Boyer.
The artwork, a depiction of a
chil d floating in space attached to
Earth by an umbilical cord, will
be presented to the conference's
host city, where an agenda for
protecting the environment
worldwide is expected to be produced.
Mario Houle, who helped organize Green Light, said the group
will also visit environmental organizations in the United States
before moving on to Central and
South America.
"We want to invite the people
to participate with the volunteers
that make the conference possible.
There would be no such conference
were it not for the grassroots organizations," Houle said.
"The grassroots organizations
were involved in the first three
steps [ofthe coordinating the conference], but they weren't invited
to the last two that will get all the
glory."
As well, Green Light aims to
make people aware of
environmental literature available, such as the Canadian Environmental Network's Green List,
which contains a list of 2,000 Canadian groups.
Turtle Island Earth Stewards
(TIES) executive director Tyhson
Banighen agrees. The general
public, however, should play a
more important role than it has,
he said.
"More important, I think, is
to empower local people, to help
them make the linkages between
the Green Light project and the
UNCED conference and how it
affects their lives," Banighen said.
"A piece of art like the Green
Light can help to do that, can give
a pictorial image of what [the
shared responsibility] is," he said.
Without public involvement,
conferences like UNCED will
amount to nothing more than political posturing.
"Governments and industry
will do what government and industry usually do. The only way
they will change is from public
pressure. Governments pressure
industry and the public pressures
the government."
Banighen said he hopes the
non-government and environmental groups involved in the UN
conference can set up a global network so that a united effort can be
made to ensure that decisions
made in Rio De Janeiro are carried
out.
TIES is a non-government
group involved in placing lands
and forests in trust.
"NGOs (non-government organizations) and environmental
organizations are the conscience
ofthe planet," he said. "Whatever
agreements are made are only the
beginning. It is up to us to make
sure they live up to it."
Project Green Light began its
tour in Victoria on January 6 and
will be moving east for the next
seven weeks.
Gay and lesbian
bookstore bombed
*■ v   by Paul Dayson
H. , Little Sister's, Vancouver's
lesbian and gay bookstore, was
bombed at 10pm on Tuesday
night, one hour before the store
closed.
The explosion occurred in an
■*"'   empty stairwell leading to the
>   bookstore. Although there were
customers and staff in the store at
the time, no one was injured.
"The explosion created some
structural damage, but luckily no
one was in the stairway and nobody was hurt," said Jim Deva,
Little Sister's co-owner.
The explosive device used was
a "simulator bomb" commonly
used to simulate explosions during military exercises. The device
was of Polish manufacture.
"[Simulation bombs] might be
safe in fields," said corporal John
Dragni, Vancouver Police Department spokesperson, "but in
the enclosed nature of the stairwell they are dangerous. The concussion [of the explosion] can
cause physical and structural
damage."
This is the third bombing of
the bookstore. The store was previously attacked in December 1987
and February 1988. Police suspect the bombings may be linked,
since each explosive device has
been identical.
Deva said, "The bombing was
homophobic in nature and ties in
with the violence the gay and lesbian community deals with in
general.
"Little Sister's is a target because of its visibility," he said.
The store has made headlines
in the past with its battle against
attempts by Canada Customs to
halt the prohibition and censorship of lesbian and gay publications at the border.
"We're proud of being open
and visible," Deva said.
Little Sister's was open on
Wednesday. According to Deva,
they have no intention of closing
the store.

NDP waffles on tuition freeze
BURNABY (CUP)—The British
Columbia NDP government is re-
viewingitsfinancesbefore deciding
whether to keep its election promise to freeze tuition fees.
"Because it was such a late
election call, we don't even have a
budget setfor thisyear, andif there
is a freeze it will have to be incorporated into next year's budget,"
said advanced education minister
Tom Perry.
During the October election
campaign, several NDP candidates
vowed that an NDP government
would freeze fees.
Brad Lavigne, the chair of
Canadian Federation of Students-
BC (CFS-BC), said he is still confident the province will keep its
promise.
"The caution is nothing we
didn't expect," he said. "We're extremely optimistic that the freeze
is going to take hold."
However, since the government did not bring down a budget
in 1991, Lavigne saiditmay be too
late to freeze fees for the 1992/93
academic year.
"If the budget is delayed until
September, we may have two-year
tuition fee grabs (by colleges and
universities) in anticipation ofthe
freeze," he said.
Perry said that if fees are frozen, the government will be forced
to increase funding to post-secondary institutions to make up for
the lost revenue. The province estimates the cost of a freeze at $8 to
$10 million.
CFS-BC is calling for a 15 per
cent increase to bring funding levels back to those of 1982-83. Ce-x-c-e-l-l-e- n^t)

HAVE YOU PICKED UP YOUR B. C. STUDENT
LOAN OR EQUAUZATION PAYMENT?
Students who applied last summer and fall for aid through the B.C. Student Assistance Program and
qualified for B. C. Student Loans are reminded that their loan documents (Certificates I) are available for
pick up in the lobby of the General Services Administration Building outside the Awards Office (Room 101)
on weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Schedules 2 for the second disbursement of Canada
Student Loans are available at the same location. Picture I.D. must be presented. Loan recipients are urged
to claim their Certificates I as soon as possible. These documents must be taken to the bank for
negotiation, a process which can require several days.
Students who qualified for Equalization Payments should report to the Awards Section of the Department
of Financial Services in Room 101 of the General Services Administration Building to claim their cheques.
Photo I.D. will be required.
BCSAP applicants are also reminded to complete their Statements of Personal Responsibility and return
them to the UBC Awards Office promptly. Failure to do so by the end of the term could disqualify applicants
for Loan Remission after graduation.
Second term tuition Is due by January 10,1992. UBC awards for second term (such as bursaries,
scholarships and fellowships) were applied to fees on the night of January 3. If there are any funds
remaining after fees are fully paid, cheques for the balance will be available for pick-up in Room 101 after
January 8.
The Awards Office has made every attempt to defer the payment date for second-term tuition fees until
February 1 for students who have loan disbursements in January. Individuals can confirm this by calling
TELEREG, signing on as directed in the TELEREG Guide, and using the M# command. The deferment
should give all borrowers ample time to claim their loan documents, cash them, and remit the full amount
of second term tuition. All loan recipients have signed a declaration stating that the first use of their
loans/EP will be to pay tuition fees owing to the educational Institution.

Natives triumph at United Nations
-»*>
by Graham Cameron Coleman
After more than 75 years of
international campaigning for
rights by Native peoples, the
United Nations has declared 1993
as the Year of Indigenous Peoples,
said Russel Barsh, UN representative for the Mikmaq Grand
Council.
The UN rejected the Canadian government's proposal that
the Year should celebrate native
"diversity." The UN will focus on a
partnership between the UN and
native peoples to promote their
rights and development.
"What we are going to see over
the next five to ten years is recognition by the UN ofthe state 'character" of indigenous peoples. Not

sporting
tradition
by Jonathan Desbarats
MONTREAL (CUP)—Students
critical of McGill University's
Redmen logo are trying to change
25 years of McGill sporting tradition.
Members of the Native
Awareness Committee are circulating a petition to change the
Redmen logo, which depicts an
aggressive-looking First Nations
man in "traditional" dress. The
committee has also organized a
public forum to discuss changing
the logo.
"Weareencouragingpeopleto
come out and say what they think
about it," said NAC member and
Mohawk Brian Rice.
Most of the support for the
logo comes from athletics department members, who refused an
invitation from NAC members to
attend the forum.
"It is a well-designed, dignified logo," said athletics department director Robert Dubeau.
"None ofthe members ofthe athletics department feel the logo is
discriminatory in any way."
Members of the athletics department are not the only ones
opposed to changingthelogo. Some
members of McGill sports teams
said they want it to remain.
"It's been with us for so many
years, why should it be a problem
now?" asked Jordy Tedford, a
centre for the McGill Redmen
hockey team.
Hockey team head coach Jean
Pronovo said he thinks the logo is
fine.
"To me it's petty,"he said, "rm
a Mohawk myself and I don't find
the logo offensive."
But Rice said the logo is culturally degrading.
"Society should be past the
stage of having to use cultural
stereotypes to promote sports
teams," he said. "It wouldn't be
acceptable to use blacks or orientals, so why should it be for us?"
Dubeau said the department
is not budging unless there is a lot
of pressure to change.
"We are not about to change
the logo just because one or two
persons feel that it's discriminatory towards Indians," said
Dubeau. "Only if there is a very
strong campus complaint will we
change the logo."
The athletics department has
no intention of changing the name
"Redmen," he added.
formal state status with a seat in
the UN General Assembly, but
representation in various working
committees," he said.
"Indigenous Peoples will be
sitting at the table, hammering
out resolutions."
Barsh said it was a major
breakthrough in the international
recognition of native rights, autonomy, and eventually self-government.
Importantly, the use of the
development resources will be under the direction of native communities, not state governments.
Barsh, who has lobbied the
UN for Mikmaq sovereignty since
the late 1970s, said the timing of
the UN Year constitutes a diplo
matic victory for indigenous
peoples. The Year will officially
begin on Columbus Day 1992—the
500th anniversary of the "discovery" of the Americas—and finish
in October 1993.
The simple presence of UN
representatives on Native reservations, homelands, and communities will also go a long way in
"shielding" them from state oppression. Governments—especially the supposed "good guys"
like Canada—do not like to be seen
as colonial oppressors, he said.
As an example, Barsh said
Canada received diplomatic flack
because of its handling ofthe Oka
incident. During the stand-off between the Canadian Armed Forces
and the Mohawk Nation, the UN
requested that Canada explain its
"excessive" use of force before the
UN Committee on Human Rights.
This was never mentioned in
Canada's mainstream press, Barsh
said, because Canada tries to portray itself as the "White Knight" of
international affairs. "We are not
supposed to be seen as a violator of
human rights—that is the job of
South Africa or the Soviet Union,
but certainly not Canada."
However, Barsh said in the
back rooms of international politics Canada has traditionally been
the most outspoken opponent of
the indigenous rights movement.
In a attempt to neutralize the efforts of native diplomats, Canada
has repeatedly sided with human
and environmental rights abusers
such as Guatemala, the USSR,
Brazil, and Argentina.
Barsh said on two occasions in
the late 1980s when it appeared
that several African nations were
prepared to back resolutions condemning Canada for racism
against its First Nations Peoples,
the Mulroney government threatened to withhold their developmental aid. In both cases the African countries withdrew their support for the resolutions.
"The country that feels the
most threatened and is screaming
the loudest is this one," Barsh said.
Caper Times stirs up UCCB residence
by Dawn Mitchell
HALIFAX (CUP) — The student
newspaper at the University College of Cape Breton is being accused of "male bashing" following
a male issues supplement.
The Caper Times ran the
supplement after criticism of their
coverage of women's issues. The
October 31 edition of the paper
included a supplement on sexual
assault, and the paper has been
following up with stories on an
attack on campus.
Occupants ofthe third floor of
a men's residence posted the October 31 issue, dubbing it the
"Feminist Times." The campus
assault is alleged to have taken
place on that floor.
In response, the November 14
issue of the paper included an article from the Canadian University Press newswire on a men's
rights group, and three spoof stories written by the staff entitled
"Men angered over poster," "I am
man, hear me belch!," and "Man
harassed at his job."
Andy Peck, student council
vice-president and liason between
the council and the paper, said he
usually supports the paper, but
this had gone too far.
"I wholeheartedly believe that
it was sexist and racist, and an
attack on the guys," he said.
But the council will not be
taking any action against the paper, he said.
Caper Times co-editor Lori
Errington defended the coverage of
women's issues, especially articles
detailing the case of the campus
assault. She said the men's
supplement was supposed to be
provocative.
"It was meant truly as a joke
to raise some eyebrows and make
people thinkmaybe we have a point
or to raise some legitimate male
issues," said Errington.
At the bottom ofthe spoof page
a message read: "This page is especially dedicated for the men of
third floor of Mac Donal d resi dence.
Without your courage (not!) none
of this would have been possible or
necessary."
Errington said this was a reference to the Feminist Times dig,
but others thought it was referring
to the alleged sexual assault. Third
floor residents said they are tired
of being ridiculed.
"Since the beginning of the
semester, we had a reputation of
the party floor," said residence assistant Jamie Clark. "The boys are
upset at the bad name."
Although Clark said he felt
the sexual assault was a legitimate story to cover, he said the
paper had devoted too much time
toit.
"The paper has dwelled on the
issue a long time and people get
worn out," he said.
Third floor residents also expressed their dissatisfaction with
the paper in a letter addressed to
the "editor (EXECUTIONER) of
the Caper Times."
"Feminism is a good idea, as
we fully support the equality of
women, but what you have succeeded in doing is called "MALE
BASHING'," it said.
The letter also said the men
are upset by the paper's "abusive
display of authority."
The paper staff and the residence students are planning a
meeting to discuss the incident and
future story ideas. Errington said
she does not expect it to be a
shouting match.
"If I start feeling rope burns
around my neck I'm out of there,"
she said.
Newspaper staff members are
planning another women's
supplement for this semester.

TORONTO(CUP)—Ontario is
poised to exempt aboriginal mid-
wives from controversial health
legislation that Natives say
threatens their traditional way of
life.
Slated to pass in 1992, Bill 56
would criminalize the practice of
many traditional aboriginal mid-
wives if they could not meet provincial safety and education standards.
After a meeting with aboriginal advocacy groups in early November, health minister Frances
Lankin agreed to ask cabinet to
exempt Natives from the legislation, said Lillian Rice, an aboriginal health consultant to the province.
Lankin decided Ontario had
not consulted aboriginal people
adequately, and did not want to
ram it through—in keeping with
recent promises to let Natives run
their own affairs, Rice said.
"Moving to self-determination
is a priority," she said. "And given
that Ontario had just signed a [self-
determination] agreement, this
decision is very important."
Members of Equay-Wuk—an
organization representing 33 Native women's groups—are pleased
with the decision, said group
member Carol Terry.
"I think we are happy with
this," she said.
Equay-Wuk members are now
concentrating on ensuring the
federal government does not use
Ontario's reworking of health care
legislation as an excuse to renege
on its own agreement to fund First
Nations health care.
"That's part of treaties made
with the federal government, between sovereign nations, and they
have to hold to those promises."
The province has pledged to
consult Natives to determine how
best to assist in health care, Rice
said. But they are also worried
about taking the burden off the
federal government.
"[Lankin's decision] is timely
and it's not timely, because the
federal government is just now
trying to work out the role of aboriginal peoples in the constitution.
Nobody's sure who's supposed to
be doing what."
The exemption has already
received the unanimous approval
of Ontario's Standing Committee

Foul retort to code of conduct
by Clive Thompson
TORONTO(CUP)—Ryerson
Polytechnical Institute's student
newspaper is crying censorship and
has given a front-page "Fuck You"
to a proposed code of conduct for
campus media.
A large, red "Fuck You" headline
led off The Eyeopener's December
4 editorial, which claims a recent
report from Ryer son's Harassment
Prevention Services advocates
censoring the press.
"It's a very ominous, Orwellian
suggestion," said Eyeopener editor
Mike O'Connor. "Censorship in any
form is heinous. It's basically a
power grab by the administration."
The report, which evaluates the
cases of the year-old harassment
office, notes several community
members want protection against
shoddy or hateful journalism.
It cites a story published in 1989
by The Ryersonian—another
campus paper—that quoted anti-
gay sentiment in a story on Gay
Pride Day. A complaint was filed
against the paper, claiming the
story was unbalanced.
"Some have suggested the establishment of a media-watch tribunal," the report states. It then
recommends a review of "the issue
of ethical constraints on reporting
and the establishment of a code of
conduct for internal media and a
system of appropriate address."
But the report's author says
The Eyeopener is way off base.
"If you've read it, then you realize the report says nothing about
censorship," said Jean Golden, director of campus safety.
The 'code of conduct' recommendation will be examined by a
harassment review committee in
consultation with community
members. If accepted, it will be
forwarded to Ryerson's president
and board of governors for approval.
The committee does not have
an idea what power a code of conduct could have, said committee
co-chair Mitch Kosny.
"We haven't even looked at those
recommendations yet," he said. "I
couldn't tell you or even guess what
will happen."
Several campus officials and
students objected to the
Eyeopener's headline, claiming it
was loaded with violent symbolism—particularly in the context of
December 6 memorials for the
murder of 14 women in Montreal
in 1989.
Danielle Szandtner, coordinator of Ryerson's Women's Centre,
agrees with The Eyeopener's concern about censorship but says
their imagery was too aggressive.
"There is something a little bit
macho about the language," she
said. "We have to be vigilant about
[censorship] but at the same time
we don't want to look like complete
morons."
The Eyeopener's headline actually formed a case example of
why campus papers should adhere
to an external code of conduct, said
Arnice Cadieux, Ryerson's public
relations officer.
"Both the headline and the reporting on the report reflect a total
lack of consideration of ethics and
of the violence surrounding the
headline," she added.
O'Connor defended the headline, saying the entire editorial
staff—over half of which are
women—approved it.
"The headline expresses our
indignation with the idea of censorship. It may be an obscene term
but it isn't a sexist term. You really
have to stretch to see it as sexist,
especially in the context of the
editorial."

Can men deal with it?
by Jonathan Wong
—••*•»       /\   suicidal patient, a
X A. talented poet, lies
strapped in a bed haunted by her
past. The head of her older
brother has been blown off by
police. Her twin brother Tom
(Nick Nolte) is emotionally
. .   «   oblivious to almost everyone
around him—callous and
cynical—he fails to fulfill the
emotional needs of his wife who
has had an affair. His body has
become a museum of his being.
^^      Only his eyes could say I was
raped.
i     * No family crime is too great
to forgive, he dramatically
narrates. But he cannot find
reconciliation. His father beat
him, his mother lied to him. He
^. «,     feels abandoned. We think
therein lies the reason for his
*""*■'   eternal unrest. But something
deeper, linked to his twin sister's
suicide attempt, continues to
gnaw at him.
Director Barbara Streisand's
Prince of Tides uses emotional
i dynamics rarely seen on a
-»•»■    screen. The impact of rape,
family abuse and suicide will
emotionally jolt viewers out of
their seats.
And there are no seatbelts
other than the security of comic
relief.
FILM
Prince of Tides
now playing
Streisand has chosen to emphasize a courage to deal with
emotions, a courage to cry most
men don't have.
Tom has buried his past and
has cultivated a repression of his
pain as a child. He is like many
men, bold-fronted, wryly
humourous, strong, steady,
unemotional and macho—unable
to cope with emotions. His gentle
side is unseen and buried within
his museum.
The failure to confront his
past has created a hyper-volatile
personality—played almost
naturally by Nolte. He has fits
when confronted by emotional
situations and is swift to dodge
them. He is a seasoned dodger.
But his stubborn avoidance
has affected his personality,
building a brick-like wall around
his sensitivity, and caused all of
his close relationships (with his
parents, his sister, his brother,
and his wife) to be severely
dysfunctional.
His rash behaviour isolates
him, and prevents him from
nurturing any possible strong
relationship. He has very few
close friends.
The first 30 minutes appear
to be typical Hollywood Nolte (I
thought I was watching Cape
Fear), but there is a drastic turn
as secrets and emotions unfold in
the next hour. The Southern
accent at first appears like a
continuation of an overbearing
Hollywood fetish, but is vindicated by humour and intrigue.
Nolte's narration of script
excerpts may win him an Oscar.
The ending deflates the
film—15 minutes of romance and
love scenes failed to justify
itself—but the film guarantees a
challenge to those who are
emotionally truncated, and a
delight to everyone else.

No support for beauty pageant
It's the end of an era. The tiera has
tarnished. The roses have wilted. The
paramedics are attempting to revive
the fur coat. Cleo Productions has cut
their budget and Miss Canada has become Miss Nonexistant.
As of October 1992 the 45 -year-old
contest shall be retired. The sponsor of
the Miss Canada contest Cleo productions and its parent company, Baton
Broadcasting Inc. have decided the
contest is beyond their budgets. No
longer will young women parade and
perform for recognition as a Miss Congeniality, a Miss Photogenic, a Miss
Canada. A contest that strives to deny
diversity and individuality in its attempt to find the one beautiful and
otherwise ideal woman has been suspended. Feminist groups throughout
the country are applauding the contests
decline. The fall of the Miss Canada
Pageant harkens the end of all beauty
pageants.
But while feminist groups applaud
the fall, it is unfortunately not some 20
years of anti-pageant activism which
has brought it about. The end of the
pageant is not about society taking
revolutionary anti-sexist action. The
end is about economics. If the money
was there, the contest would continue.
Women would continue to compete
against each other to be the best Miss;
that is, the best unmarried -woman.
People would continue to watch women
being exploited to sell a false femininity, as well as a hell of a lot of consumer
goods.
In a patriarchal capitialist society,
equality and justice are not forces for
change. Money is. We are happy that
Cleo Productions is broke. This may
end a bit of exploitation and degradation. We thank our good fortune in one
sense, but we don't Miss Take it for
change.

It was the great day of the Mlss/ter Strange Human Qualities Pageant
and Ma. Host wu announcing the contestants. Mr. Benevolence Ted
Young-Ing was hoping someone else would win as Mr. Modesty Matthew
Martin stood next to him expostulating that he didnt deserve to win.
Like Mr. Myxomatosis Rob Emmerson, Mr. Vegetarian Paul Dayson was
secretly pining away for the winner's bouquet of wild carrots as he
walked down the rampway in his organically grown lettuce leaf bikini
designed by Mr. Earth Muffin Graham Coleman. Meanwhile, Mr. E. Tim
Ziegler eluded the judges, hiding behind Mr. Amputated-Toe Lucho Van
Iaschot aa he performed Daniel Day Lewis imitations. Miss Bondage-
Leather Yukie Kurahashi ahowed Miss Garlic-Breath Michelle Mason
how to floss her teeth with a whip while Mr. Spontaneous Combustion

stood in the wings she saw Miss Demeanour Dianne Rudolf steal Mr.
Myopic Raul Peechlera's glasses causing him to stumble into Miss Hap
Sharon Lindores who fell off the stage. While Miss Anthropie Cheryl
Niamath and Mr. Mirth Martin Chester laughed in delighted pleasure,
Miss Congeniality Rebecca Bishop and Miss Manners Effie Pow helped
their fellow contestant back on stage, and Mr. Wacky Guy Sage Davies
preformed headstands to the chagrin of Mr. Upright Mark Nielaon, Miss
Information Carla Maftechuk's projected results proved wrong when
the judges finally announced the winner Miss Issippi Paula Wellings,
and she meandered down the stage with runner-up Miss Giving Franks
Cordua-vonSpecht who didn't know if Ae should accept her prize: two
tickets for a wonderful week in Lake Taho. Although there was much
dissent among the contestants, Mr. Ying Jonathan Wong and Mr. Yang
Don Mah managed to put everyone back in order. All in all it had been a
grand day.

The state of
the planet
To comment ofthe state on
the planet one might only
get as far as noting less-than-
useful generalizations:
planet Earth is mostly
round, lots of water with bits
of land and a hefty amount
of rotational energy. However, it was suggested that I
would direct my attention
toward the environment.
Discussing the ozone layer,
biodegradable materials,
deforestation ofthe Amazon
or BC, acid rain, pollution
and recyclingis unnecessary
because most students acknowledge and are familiar
with these issues. We KNOW
about the horrible and
frightening consequences of
our consumption oriented
society, and now that we
know and acknowledge the
issues we can get on to other,
more important things. At
this time a quote comes to
mind. G.I. Joe once said,
"Knowing is half the battle."
Whatcouldbetheotherhalf?
If it is putting this knowledge into use as action then,
hey, the battle's won~even
Fred Basset recycles! Well,
as one might suspect, it's not
quite that simple. In fact,
the action that must occur is
more dramatic than anything physically achievable.
What must occur is a
changing of values-not exactly as easy as building a
compost box.
Perhaps fundamental to
the new system of values is
the concept of sustained development. This term was
popularized by the
Brundtland report from the
mid '80s. Since that time
most everything has become
sustained development: the
B.C. forest industry, the
provincial budget, the
salmon industry, etc. Initially one might consider the
term an oxymoron, as sustained seems to suggest
stability and an absence of
growth where as development means change and
growth. Yet huge amounts
of money is being spent every year to research this very
concept. Ironically the
greatest source of sustained
development knowledge is
disappearing relatively unnoticed. This is the wealth of
knowledge of the British
Columbian Native elders

who have practiced sustained development within
their respective territories
for generations. The importance of this knowledge to
our society isunmeasurable.
By using their knowledge
and leadership, a more sophisticated system of values
can take the place of the
current consumption driven
system. Not only is this
reasonable and intelligent,
but it is also social evolution
and vital totheimprovement
ofthe presently declining
state of the planet.

Even in the
daylight
Our local newspapers report that there has been a
number of robberies and
assaults committed by
criminals hiding in the rear
of parked cars.
I have given rides to many
of our female students, and
some males, to the parking
lots at night, always warning
them to glance in the back of
their cars to see that every-
thingisin order. If anything
is amiss, immediately walk
away and report to the
RCMP or the patrol.
To emphasize a point,
there is a man doing life for
strangling a woman, with
her pantyhose, in a lit underground garage while
people were walking by. This
isn't a joke, it's deadly serious, and you never know the
rotten mind of the person
contemplating this type of
crime. They also carry them
out in the daylight.

Women should
have choice
re:  David Voth's letter November 26,1991.
WHERE does the right to
have an abortion come from,
you ask? The Supreme Court
of Canada declared section
251 of the Criminal Code
unconstitutional on the basis that it infringed on section 7 of The Canadian
Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Section 7 of the
Charter states, Everyone
has the right to life, liberty
and security of the person
and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles
of fundamental justice." Regarding "security of the
person," Chief Justice Brian
Dickson states in his reasons
for judgment, "[TJhelaw has
long recognized that the
human body ought to be
protected from the interference by others. . . . Section
251 clearly interferes with a
woman's bodily integrity in
both a physical and emotional sense. Forcing a
woman, by threat of criminal
sanction, to carry a foetus
[sic] to term unless she meets
certain criteria unrelated to
her own priorities and aspirations, is a profound interference with a woman's body
and thus a violation of security of the person." Re-
gar ding the "rightto liberty,"
Justice Bertha Wilson states
in her reasons for judgment,
"the right to liberty contained in s. 7 guarantees to
every individual a degree of
personal autonomy over important decisions intimately
affecting their private lives."
Section 7 ofthe Charter
is also used by anti-choice
people under the terms that
"[E]veryone has the right to
life" meaning that "everyone" includes the fetus which
is a person from the moment
of conception and that it
should have the "right to
life." But according to the
Criminal Code article 206
section 1, "[A] child becomes
a human being within the
meaning of this Act when it
has completely proceeded, in
a living state, from the body
of its mother ..."
These are legal arguments to a situation that
seems to be a question of
morality rather than of legality. "The decision
whether or not to terminate
a pregnancy is essentially a
moral decision, a matter of
conscience (Justice Wilson)."
It is up to the individual to
decide for herself what she
believes is moral or immoral.
If a woman believes that
abortion is immoral, then she
should not have one. Instead, she should be supported in her decision by
adoption agencies and
Health and Welfare, in the
form of daycare and job opportunities for single mothers. If a woman believes
that abortion is moral and it
is the only option open to
her, a decision only she can
make for herself, then she
should be supported in that
decision. She should have
access to abortion and it
should be paid for through
the provincial Medical Services Plan.

UBC cheap on
coffee
Dear Ms. MacDougall:
I would like to address
your letter regarding coffee
discounts.
Our department does not
have apolicy of "discounting"
coffee if you bring your own
mug. We do have an incentive program, for customers
with a UBC mug or a Blue
Chip mug to receive a large
coffee for the price of a medium.
For customers using their
own mugs we have adopted
the policy of charging all
mugs (except UBC Food
Service and Blue Chip mugs)
for a large coffee unless a
customer wanted us to
measure out a smaller size
into their mugs. This was
very necessary due to the
infinite number of shapes
and sizes of mugs. The sign
reading "personal mug any
reasonable size," relates to
the policy of charging for a
large coffee for personal
mugs. Nowhere have we
advertised a discount on
coffee if you brought your
own mug.
I hope this may clear up
any questions you may have
regarding our policy. If you
would like any further information please call me at
822-9079.

January 10,1992 UETTERS/OPINrONS
1991: A year of lucid madness
It was the best of times, it
was the worst of times. It was a
year of Foolishness, it was a year
of Reason. We all decried the old
orthodoxy, we all searched out
the paths of innovation. In short,
it was a year not unlike its precedents: it was punctuated by moments of lucidity, in accordance
with the visions of supreme authorities, as well as a madness
which did much to confuse those
same authorities from triumphing their
own prescience
and control.
It was the year of our Lord
nineteen hundred and ninety-
one. And, in the fashion of its
predecessors, its strange brew of
events passed UBC as a crowd on
a platform might pass a waiting
train, whispering muffled warnings of strife to us through our
comfy encasement of metal and
glass.
There came a bald man, with
a moustache, in the office ofthe
premier of the province. There
stayed a bald man, without a
moustache in the office of the
president ofthe university. Both
bowed to the Howe Street gods,
who in turn reeled and hurled
curses at another man, one of a
large jaw, from another office.
The year saw the Beaver and
the Eagle fish from the same
pond, and the Beaver protest as
the Eagle hastened away with
the better catch.
Yes, America! Its dominance
and prestige emerged apparently
unassailable, a tarnished benignity reigning over a New World
Order. And now its glory stands,
strangely haunted, yet undeni-
FREESTYLE
ably buttressed by the monument
of an Arabian highway, long and
littered with corpses. That is
how America began the year.
Behind the gun. But it ended
1991 looking inward: now at a
floundering economy, now at lurid sex scandals in its public
arena, now at a racist monster
offering himself up for political
office.
In Canada, it was business
as usual, and
we could
hardlyjustify
much national boasting. The French
threatened the English with departure. The English threatened
the French with economic isolation. Members ofParliamentcast
foul names across the floor ofthe
Commons at one another. Whites
fought blacks in Halifax, and
blacks fought back in Montreal.
Unemployment and welfare lineups grew despite (or more likely
becuase of) medicine administred
by him ofthe large jaw.
For Vancouver, the dear old
year nineteen hundred and
ninety-one brought the odious
distinction of the highest per
annum number of murders ever.
Some found causal link between these events of nineteen
hundred and ninety-one, the
writersof this chronicle included.
Others preferred not to.
Many of the rest of us at
UBC simply sat on the train of
Social Progress, unable to discern whether the trainhad begun
to roll, or whether the movement
outside merely created that illusion.
Charlie Gillis
I spy the LPI
I was pleased to see the prominence given to Mark Nielsen's report on the changes in the English
programme planned for next year
(The Ubyssey, January 7). However, I'd like to correct a few minor
inaccuracies:
The Language Proficiency Index (LPI) is administered by the
Educational Measurement Research Group in the Faculty of
Education, and will not be run by
the new Writing Centre.
The LPI will have no bearing on
the credit students receive in their
regular English classes at UBC.
Unlike the ECT, the LPI will be
taken before students register for
their courses. Students will be
asked to present an LPI score of
Level 5 or Level 6 before being
permitted to enrol in a first-year
English course. Those students
with scores below Level 5 will be
required to enrol instead in a one-
term non-credit writing course to
be given in the Writing Centre;
should they obtain a standing of
Level 5 on a subsequent sitting of
the LPI, they may register in a
first-year English class at the beginning of the following term.
The LPI is not a requirement
for admission, so it is true that
students need not write the test
prior to admission. However, given
the large numbers of enrollees, we
would advise incoming first-year
students to take the LPI as early as
possible, to enable them to register in the English course of their
choice before the courses fill up
during the registration period.

Technically Foul
by Charles Nho
Just four teams remain in the
hunt for Super Bowl XXVI as
Washington gets ready to host
Detroit and Denver travels to
Buffalo for what should be two
very exciting football games this
Sunday.
Eliminated last weekend were
the playoff pretenders when the
Redskins took care of Gerry
Glanville's rambunctious Atlanta
Falcons 24-7. The combination of
Chris Miller to Michael Haynes,
which had led the Falcons to several last-second victories this season, hooked up only once the whole
game.
Also sidelined are the explosive Houston Oilers. Unfortunatly,
they of the Astrodome run-and-
gun offensive, were forced to play
outdoors at Mile High Stadium
and ended up losing by two. No
domed team has ever made it to
the Super Bowl.
What can you say about the
Chiefs? No Christian Okoye. No
Thurmon Thomas-neutralizer in
inside linebacker Percy Snow. But
what a gutsy performance by free
safety Deron Cherry. The 11-year
man out of Rutgers played flawless
defence and seemed a part of every
Chief tackle in the secondary.
Look to the air during the
Washington-Detroit contest.
Redskin quarterback Mark
Rypien, looking to sign a huge
contract after the season, will be
looking to connect with his "posse"-
Art Monk, Gary Clark, and Ricky
Sanders. The Lions will hope their
quarterback Erik Kramer can repeat his 341 yard, three touchdown
effort against the Cowboys. The
key match-up in this game is the
running backs of Washington —
Earnest Byner and rookie Ricky
Ervins against the should-have-
been Pro-Bowl linebacker Chris
Spielman. Also look for Detroit's
first-round draft pick, wide receiver
Herman Moore, to finish the year
strongly. After suffering early
season vision problems, the former
Ail-American returned wearing
contact lenses to catch his first TD
pass against Dallas.
Over in the AFC, the matchup is the highest rated offence
(Buffalo) versus the highest rated
defence (Denver). Everyone knows
ofthe Bills wide array of offensive
weapons. Start with Jim Kelly
passing to Andre Reed on the inside, Lofton and Beebe outside,
handing off to "Thurmol"- that is
the great Thurmon Thomas and
Kenneth Davis. Their defence is
loaded with marquee names- Bruce
Smith, Cornelius Bennett, and
Darryl Talley.
The Denver Broncos, however,
counter with these outstanding
players: "Miracle Man" John EH way
who engineered another come-
from-behind victory last week, the
NFL's defensive rookie-of-the-year
linebacker Mike Croel—who could
well be the next Lawrence Taylor,
1000 yard rusher Gaston Green,
and finally an intimidator in the
secondary. At 6'3" 213 lbs, Pro-
Bowl safety Steve Atwater will
knock the head off any receiver
daring to come up the middle. He
is a heavy-hitter and one tough
customer whom I believe even
Andre Reed will want to stay away
from.
