A cry of ‘obscene’ was heard in the halls of Warden Woods last week. A small cry. Yet it did exist. And what was this show of indignation about? Was it because of foul language written on the walls of the washroom? Was it because of a pornographic film being shown to english students? Was it because of a racist joke in the ASYLUM? No, it was none of the above. A photo series on display was labeled obscene by a few women. The display consists of several photos which put together in sequence, form a photo story. This particular photo story begins...

We Get Letters

Voice your opinions with letters to the editor. The Arsenal welcomes all comments. Letters should be addressed to the Editor and submitted to the Journalism Department Office. All letters should be signed.

Dear Sir: Three cheers and a hip, hip, hurrah for your editorial on Centennial’s poor excuse for a library. I was one who was fleeced to the tune of $1.75 for a book probably not worth that much. I, too, think the system of fining students is out of line. The students might well boycott the place if the system continues. I suggest a two week limit on books and a fine of ten cents a day on overdue books. I hope your staff will continue to...

So what has Scarborough College got that Centennial doesn’t have?

I read recently that Scarborough had been designed along the same lines as in Aztec temple and that the architect had incorporated the idea of “squeeze the tube and bloop more buildings”.

What I can’t understand is why the educational eyes of Canada are not upon Centennial College as a brand new concept in teaching and learning. Just think of the avant-garde concepts in vogue at Centennial...

By Geoffrey Mosher

With the coming municipal elections many students are wondering if they are eligible to vote in the City of Toronto, where they can vote and how to register.

According to Toronto.ca, residents over the age of 18, as well as non-residents, “individuals who own or rent property in the City of Toronto” can vote. If you are eligible and registered to vote, your name will appear on the voters list and you will receive a voter information card in the mail in early October. This card will tell you where your polling station is located as well as where to vote during the two weekend days of advance voting.

If you do not receive a voter...

The Courier asked the top three mayoral candidates how they plan to improve student life. Here’s what they said.

Secondary school graduates should have to option to prosper in our City. Unfortunately high taxes has prevented that… I would work with city staff to understand existing programs (and) work with the private sector.

By Akihiko Tse

The Executive Team of the College has approved an enhanced health and dental plan, and a referendum is set to be held April 3 and 4, coinciding with the CCSAI’s election dates.

The referenda were initially scheduled for March 27 and 28, but the changes to the dates come after the college deemed the duration period for advertising the original referenda too short and its wording too problematic....
