Contemporary Dance celebrates its 10th anniversary 





__ by Buzz Bourdon 


Members of Concordia’s Department 
of Contemporary Dance are using their 
10th anniversary celebration this year 
to introduce themselves to the com- 
munity. 

“There are a lot of groups in the com- 
munity who don’t know anything 
about contemporary dance and stu- 
dents need all the experience they can 
get,” said Elizabeth Langley, Chair of 
the Department. “I’m. also a strong 
believer in free theatre. Tickets should 
not be sold for student performances, 
that puts pressure on them. They 
should be learning without criticism.” 

Silvy Panet-Raymond, one of two 
full-time instructors in the Department, 
outlined some of the events scheduled 
for the anniversary: “Starting in 
February, we will put ona series of per- 
formances by our students of their own 
work. We want to keep it going (after 
the year is over), for young people and 
seniors. 

“Performances by faculty and 
graduates, mini-conferences, and 
videos of shows our students have or- 
ganized will be presented, in addition 
to regular undergraduate performances 
and workshops by guest artists. Mal- 
colm Goldstein, the well-known com- 
poser and violinist, will appear,” 


Recycling 


Panet-Raymond, who has been as- 
sociated with the Department since 
1980. She studied in New York and Lon- 
don, and has had extensive experience 
as a performer and choreographer in 
Europe, Canada, Mexico and Australia.

Concordia has a new contract for recycling and it includes more paper 
products than ever before, including newsprint, envelopes and 
telephone books. Recyclable items are now the rule, not the exception 
as all deskside garbage bins become blue recycle bins.

Montréal’s lively, multi-ethnic char- 
acter makes it a great place to study the 
effect of ethnicity on lifestyle — and 
how where we're from (or our parents, 
or our ancestors) affects what we buy, 
according to Concordia Marketing 
Professor Michel Laroche. 


Laroche and his colleagues are in the 
third year of a study on ethnicity and 
lifestyle in Montréal. He presented his 
findings in Hawaii at the Third Sym- 
posium on Cross-Cultural Consumer 
and Business Studies, held in Decem- 
ber. 


The study indicates that cultural dif- 
ferences between Montrealers of French 
and English origin haven’t changed 
much over the years. Francophones are 
still more fashion-conscious. And 
despite the dramatic drop in birthrate, 
they continue to put a high priority on 
family, while English speakers tend to 
emphasise their jobs. Conforming with 


_other studies, Laroche’s work shows 


that English Montréalers are more 
price-conscious, and buy more house- 
brand groceries. 


‘Ethnicity and lifestyle in Montréal | 
are subjects of marketing study 








Montréalers of Italian origin, like 
francophones, will often pay a little 
more for a preferred brand, whereas 
Greek Montréalers share the general 
anglophone acceptance of generic and 
convenience foods. 


The study was based on a random 
sampling of Montréalers in neighbour- 
hoods with a strong ethnic character: 
English, French, Italian and Greek. 
Questionnaires were printed in the four 
languages. 


“What is of interest to us is to observe 
the differences between major cultures 
and their movements toward each 
other,” said Laroche, who has written 
five books and numerous articles on 
lifestyle. 

“We mustn’t forget that the 
phenomenon of acculturation is a sub- 
tle, two-way process which is never 
wholly complete. Not only is this 
phenomenon of interest in and of itself, 
but it can also help marketing 
strategists tailor their products to the 
specific needs of a given cultural 
group.” —Tom Donovan

Prospective grad is co-founder of troupe 


All about dance: tour enlightens teenagers 


by Buzz Bourdon 


When Sylvie Trudeau left the security 
of her job in a computer company to 
follow a lifelong dream of studying 
dance, she didn’t bargain on launching 
Montréal’s newest dance company. 

Trudeau, who will graduate in Con- 
temporary Dance this spring, is one of 
the founders of 60 cm de fonds (60 Cen- 
timetres Deep). 

Trudeau and her partners, Erika Sid- 
ler, Anik Boulay and Daniéle Marois, 
spent last summer on the road, touring 
the province to introduce contem- 
porary dance to Québec’s young 
people. The company played in 19 
venues in such places as Shawinigan, 
Roberval, La Pocatiére and Drum- 
mondville. 

Although their biggest audience 
numbered 100 people, Trudeau said, 
they didn’t get discouraged. “We al- 
ways said as long as there’s one person 
to reach, it’s worth it. Before the tour, I 
had a preconceived idea that teenagers 
were rude, but by talking with them 
after the shows I felt I understood them 
more. Doing a show in front of kids who 
react to what you’re doing is an ex- 
perience in itself.” 

Tour dates were arranged through the 
Maison des Jeunes, a government- 
sponsored agency that puts teenagers 
in touch with a variety of cultural 
groups. After the 60 cm de fonds’ perfor- 
mances, the dancers held discussions 
with members of the audience. 

“I think we really succeeded in show- 
ing the audience that dance is for 
everyone. There’s still a perception that 
dance is sissy, but I think we changed 
that a bit,” Sidler said. 

Before the four faced an audience, 
they needed 14 weeks to organize and 
to get the project off the ground. 

“It took seven weeks to get the funds 
we needed,” Sidler said. “We went 
door-to-door, used our own money, and 


gota grant from the federal government 
that was enough to pay us each a mini- 
mum-wage salary.” 


They decided to form the company 
and tour because they were unsure of 
their futures after graduation this 
spring. 


“You can’t wait for someone to ask 
you to do something, you have to do it 
yourself. It’s less scary this way. Instead 
of sitting on my behind wondering 
what will happen, I’m doing something 
for myself. If I work hard enough, 
maybe it will turn out right.” 


Trudeau acknowledged that the name 
of the company might be a bit strange, 
but they needed a name quick and they 
wanted to stimulate people’s imagina- 
tions. The tour got a more conventional 
name, la Tournée eclipse. 


Sidler and Trudeau are grateful for the 
support the Contemporary Dance 
Department has given them. Depart- 
ment Chair Elizabeth Langley said she 
is overjoyed that the four dancers 
pulled off the tour. 


“A lot of graduates have formed co- 
ops. This is the first group that has 
formed a company while still studying. 
They've done an incredible amount of 
work, and all of it during the school 
year. We are really proud of them.” 


Ensemble dance number planned 


The company’s shows have consisted 
of solos, but an ensemble number is in 
the works, they said. 60 cm de fonds 
plans to tour again this year, and dance 
workshops are expected to follow. 


“The tour should start in September 
or October,” Sidler said. “It’s not 
definite yet. We have to submit the 
project to the federal government for a 
grant as we did last summer. We also 
want to get a studio, which is a must, 
but that won’t be next year.”

OFF THE 





Allaire Report was inevitable 
after Meech failure, says Charland 





edited by Bronwyn Chester 


Off the Cuff is a weekly column of opinion and insight into major issues in the 
news. If you are a Concordia faculty member and have something to say “off 
the cuff,” call CTR at 848-4882. 


The Allaire Report, made public last week, would give Canada one last chance to 
negotiate a new constitutional arrangement with Québec. If the report recommenda- 
tions are adopted at the provincial Liberal Party convention next month, Canada will 
be given until the fall of 1992 to accept a new deal which would give Québec exclusive 
jurisdiction over many areas now under federal jurisdiction, such as unemployment 
insurance, energy, industry and environment. Maurice Charland, Professor of Com- 
munication Studies, says the report's recommendations could only have been ex- 
pected, given the events of the last 11 years and the position of the Liberal Party. 


“Since Meech Lake, the Liberals have had no viable constitutional option, so they 
needed this report to debate at their upcoming convention. The Allaire Report is the 
perfect strategy for the Liberal Party. It can join the nationalists and federalists, since 
the report is both federalist and sovereignist, and it lets the party speak for Québec 
while maintaining its internal coherence. The report is not asking for pure sovereignty 
a la Parti Québecois; it is asking for special status. 


“Ultimately, it’s an attempt to respond to the failure of the Meech Lake Accord. If the 
other provinces don’t go along, it makes sovereignty completely necessary. The 
notion of a deadline increases the urgency. If the Liberals don’t get something, they'll 
have no choice but to follow through with a referendum on sovereignty. 


“The Liberals have very little room in which to manouevre; it’s either a referendum on 
sovereignty or one last bit of negotiation. It was inevitable that Québec had to force 
some sort of decision because both the failure of Meech Lake and the ‘no’vote in the 
1980 referendum left Québec’s situation unresolved. This process is about forcing a 
‘yes’ to something.”

Gender roles in ads 
not always what they seem 


Isabelle Ricard’s aim in studying gender portrayal in magazine advertise- 
ments was to “shed a different light on the subject.” 

Instead of looking at conventional gender bias in the media, Ricard chose 
to focus on an “asexual, serious” magazine — in this case, Québec’s current 
affairs magazine l’Actualité. She found that, contrary to expectation, the 
magazine’s advertisement did not always lend itself to gender-biased inter- 
pretation. Women and men seemed to be shown in interchangeable roles. 

“The gender-neutral portrayal serves as a marketing strategy geared to 
conveying positive reinforcement for aspiring career women,” she said. 

This may sound encouraging, but Ricard is quick to add that “more is

Barbara Waruszynski’s two-year 
study of the social body of the police 
force shows that the reality of police 
work is far from the cops-and-robbers 
glamour of television. She found that 

‘the average officer spends up to eight 
hours sitting in a cruiser, eats too much 
fast food, and dies at the age of 57, some 
15 years before the average Canadian 
male. Divorce and suicide rates among 
police officers are alarmingly high. 


The adverse psychological and physi- 
cal effects of police work are caused by

stress and tedium. Referral services for 
anxious and burned-out officers are in- 
adequate, said Waruszynski, and the 
value of such services is indisputable. 


“Seventy-five per cent of the officers 
truly enjoy their jobs despite the stres- 
ses. They enjoy the social aspect of their 
work, and see themselves as knights in 
shining armour. But because public 
opinion of cops is generally negative, 
people don’t realize that most police 
officers are there because they really 
love their work.” —TD 


Prostitutes pay the price 








y Tom Donovan 


Prostitutes are still discriminated 
against in society and the legal system, 
despite gender-specific laws prohibit- 
ing such abuses, according to Sociology 
Professor Frances Shaver. 

Shaver has been studying prostitu- 
tion for more than a year as part of a 
three-year research fellowship. She has 
pored over legal statutes and inter- 
viewed prostitutes from as far as San 
Francisco and Vancouver. Last summer 
she presented her findings to the 25th 
annual meeting of the Canadian Sociol- 
ogy and Anthropology Association in 
Victoria, B.C. 

“Legal inroads alone aren’t going to 
do any good, because there is a great 
deal of stigma attached to the idea of 
prostitution. It is the prostitute who is 
branded, not the client. Although there 
is a law which is supposedly gender- 
neutral, it is applied in a discriminatory 
fashion,” she said. 

In 1983, the Canadian government 
appointed a committee to study pros- 
titution. It recommended decrim- 
inalization on a small scale and tighter 
restrictions on street-level prostitution, 
but only the clamp-down on street traf- 
fic was adopted into law. It was aimed 
at clients as well as prostitutes. 

In spite of scrupulously gender- 
neutral wording in the amended sec- 
tion of the Criminal Code, police 
officers continue to arrest many more 


prostitutes than clients. 


According to Shaver, the inability to 
advance the prostitution debate is 
rooted in our ambivalence toward 
sexuality. 


“How most of us feel about prostitu- 
tion has a lot to do with how those laws 
are enforced. Without social policy to go 
along with legal policy, you can’t effect 
any long-term changes. The laws be- 
come twisted around and end up get- 
ting reinforced in a way that reflects our 
general feelings about prostitution and 
the prostitute.” 


Both traditional attitudes toward 
women and the feminist argument that 
prostitution “objectifies” women can 
stall the prostitution debate. 


“Women have had a lot of difficulty 
overcoming these notions,” Shaver 
said. “Because we tend to view love and 
sex through rose-coloured glasses, [we 
don’t see] that the quality of recreation- 
al sex and so-called normal loving 
relationships is not that different in 
some cases from what goes on in a com- 
mercial sex situation. 


“We like to think it differs from the 
kind of scuffling that goes on in bars 
and backseats because there’s no 
money being exchanged.” 


Studies such as Shaver’s not only help 
to uproot misconceptions about pros- 
titution, but also foster a greater under- 
standing of sexuality as a whole. 


“It is in the broadest arena of sexual 
politics that prostitution must be 
regarded, not as an aberration from the 
norm or ideal,” Shaver said. 


expected of a woman at the top of the heap,” and the image of a successful 
woman in an ad reminds the viewer of how much effort it took for her to get 


there.

As if to prove the point I was trying to make in last week’s column about first names, 
or the lack of them, in Concordia correspondence, an item about a Political Science

Anthropology Lecturer Line Bernier. The Poltical Science Professor in question 
was actually Luc Bernier. Apologies all around.

Broader consultation is requested 


To the editor: 


Rumours have been circulating wide- 
ly of late about the existence of a “Spe- 
cial Blue Ribbon Task Force,” charged 
with the responsibility of considering a 
new arrangement for the deploying of 
resources between the two campuses. 

This task force, said to be reporting 
directly to the Vice-Rector Services, is 
described as actively considering a plan 
whereby all or most arts departments in 
the Faculty of Arts and Science will 
have their operations located wholly on 
the Loyola Campus. 

In all versions, the description of this 
task force specifies that its operations 
are taking place in secret. 

I applaud the existence of such a task 
force. Fifteen years after the merger, it is 
time to reconsider the two-campus 
operation, including all possibilities 
from the closing down of one of the 
campuses to maintaining the current 
situation. 

But I can’t applaud the secrecy. I am 
told that secrecy is necessary in order to 
avoid the inconvenience of a wide con- 
sultation. I am further told that once the 
task force has established its recom- 
mendations, they will be made avail- 
able for comment by the Concordia 
community at large. 

I appreciate the inconvenience of 
democratic procedures, but I believe 
that we ought to put up with them. 
Once recommendations are tabled, the 
agenda is already put in place which 
may severely constrain the discussion, 
and a direction is already established 


which may not be subject to recon- 
sideration. 


I believe that any such move toward 
a substantial redeployment of resources 
may well have far-reaching consequen- 
ces for all of us at Concordia. It seems to 
me self-evident that a matter of such 
importance and complexity will benefit 
from the widest possible consultation at 
the earliest possible stage. 


For these reasons, I am respectfully 
requesting a full disclosure. The request 
is directed first to the Vice-Rector Ser- 
vices, second to the Chair and members 
of the task force, and finally to anybody 
else with reliable answers to such ques- 
tions as the following: 

e At whose initiative was this task 
force formed? With what mandate? 
How were the members chosen? 

e What plans are under considera- 
tion? 

e Would the task force be willing to 
permit consultation by faculty, stu- 
dents and other concerned parties, 
either as individuals or through 
various institutional repre- 
sentations?

Publishers, archivists and broadcasters tackle copyright issue 


In the past few weeks, C7A has documented the 
unfolding case of the University’s obligation to 
comply with the revisions being made to the 
Copyright Act. We will continue to do so, providing 
as much information as possible. Last week, the 
Secretary-General circulated this memo to all 
faculty members and librarians. A similar memo 
was issued to all Department Chairs along with a 
repertoire for consultation by all members of each 
Department or Library. 


NOTE: The letter to Prime Minister Brian Mulroney

Finance Maurice Cohen printed in last week’s CTR

Re: Implementation of Copyright 
agreement with the Union des écrivains 
Québécois (UNEQ). 


In August 1989, an agreement was 
reached between UNEQ and Québec 
universities which allows for the 
limited reproduction of copyrighted 
works for teaching purposes. The 
agreement was implemented at French- 
language universities later the same 
year. The agreement is now being im- 
plemented at Concordia and other 
English-language universities. 


A copy of the UNEQ Repertoire, 








detailing those publishers and literary 
works covered by the agreement, has 
been distributed to each Chair for the 
use of members of the respective 
Department. The Repertoire in your 
department contains instructions on its 


Copyright hell heats up Archives 


This is a nightmare scenario from 
copyright hell: a music student wants 
to photocopy sheet music for which 
the copyright has not yet expired. She 
wants to play the music at a concert, 
and perhaps record it for publication. 

Although she is looking wistfully 
at the sheet music in Concordia 
Archives’ extensive Montréal jazz 
collection, she may have to hunt 
down the holder of the copyright — 
perhaps the songwriter, or the 
songwriter’s heirs, wherever they 
may be — for permission. 

Archives Director Nancy Marrelli 
says it is essential to have copyright 
assigned to an archival repository in 
order to provide open access to the 
collection. Marrelli took part in a 
workshop at Concordia on Archives 
and the Law organised by the 
Groupe d’archivistes de la région de 
Montréal (GARM) with the financial 
assistance of the Canadian Council of 
Archives and the Réseau des archives 
du Québec. 

The seminar, attended by 50 ar- 
chivists from across Québec, focused 
on two main issues: 

e The obligations of archivists in 
determining or restricting the 
use of the materials in 
repositories; and 
Who holds copyrights for un- 
published and _ published 
material, and how that affects the 
way the material may be used. 

The copyright of unpublished 
material is protected in perpetuity, 
meaning that unless copyright is as- 
signed to the archives at the time of 
deposit, the right of reproduction for 
any purpose is restricted to the 
holder of the copyright (usually the 
creator or the heirs of the creator). 

But there are problems even when 


the copyright is assigned to an in- 
stitution, Marrelli said, because 
sometimes there are materials in a 
collection whose copyrights have not 
been turned over. Unpublished 
materials could include manuscripts, 
correspondence, research and 
organizations’ files. 

Rights of reproduction for research 
purposes (including long-distance 
researchers), for reasons of security 
or conservation as well as for publi- 
cation, are all restricted. This means 
that original material can be con- 
sulted in the archives, but no copies 
of any kind or for any purpose can be 
made without the permission of the 
copyright-holder. 

Right of reproduction of 
photographs is restricted to the 
copyright-holders until 50 years after 
the photograph was taken. There are 
also significant restrictions for the 
public exhibition of works created 
after June 8, 1988, the date of the last 
revision to the Copyright Act. 

This is the fourth year that Concor- 
dia has hosted the GARM workshop, 
which was led by three legal experts 
on questions of intellectual property: 
Johanne Daniel of Consumer & Cor- 
porate Affairs Canada; Sylvie Plante 
of Heenan, Blaikie; and Michel 
Racicot of McCarthy, Tétrault. 
Nathalie Hodgson from Concordia 
Archives and Louis Cété of Archives 
nationales du Québec also par- 
ticipated. 

Several archives groups, including 
the Concordia Archives, are planning 
to approach the government about 
providing access to their collections 
for research purposes. More informa- 
tion is available from Nancy Marrelli, 
Director of Archives.

use. 


The agreement allows for the 
reproduction of multiple copies of a 
portion of a literary work, literary com- 
pilation or periodical (10 per cent or 25 
pages, whichever is less) for teaching 


purposes at Québec universities. 


The costs of royalties for reproduction 
within the agreement’s limits, 
described above, will be paid for with 
funds provided by the Québec govern- 
ment. The costs of any reproduction 
beyond the described limits is to be 
borne by the requesting individual or, if 
approved, by the respective unit. 


In 1990-91 CANCOPY, the English- 
language publishers’ collective, agreed 
to join the UNEQ agreement, and is 
included in the Repertoire. UNEQ is 
currently negotiating with publishing 
houses in the United States in the hope 
that they can be added to the Repertoire 
as well. The 1991-92 edition of the 
Repertoire will be available for consult- 
ation in your departmental office this 
summer. 


The use of any new system, such as 
this, can result in some confusion. If you 
have queries about the agreement, the 
guidelines, or the use of the Repertoire,

copyright legislation, an executive for 
the CBC told a Concordia audience late 
last year. 

The Crown corporation is also a user 
of copyright, and is equally unhappy 
with the present legislation, said Bob 
O'Reilly, Director for Communications 
and Broadcast Services for the CBC in 
Ottawa. 

O’Reilly, who graduated from 
Concordia’s Communication Studies 
programme in 1968, said he is aware of 
the extent to which teachers use audio- 
visual material to supplement lectures. 
The prohibitive cost of copyrights also 
hurts museums and libraries. 

There are plans for a collective (loose 
affiliation of organizations with similar 
interests) that would try to clear rights 
on certain productions for educational 
institutions. But, O’Reilly warned, “it’s 
not a charity. It will have a price at- 
tached to it, but it will be organized and 
a lot cheaper than it is now.” 

The federal government is revising 
the 1924 Copyright Act. Phase I has al- 
ready been passed and Phase II is 
buried in bureaucracy, though 
educators have learned that no exemp- 
tions for universities, libraries, or 
material used by disabled students. (see 
CTR, Jan. 17 and 31, 1991) are likely to 
be incorporated into the new legisla- 
tion. 

According to O'Reilly, broadcasters 
were “asleep” when Phase I was being 


put together. “Very little consideration 
[was] given to users, whether educa- 
tional institutions, businesses or broad- 
casters.” 


In fact, he maintained, the CBC itself, 
and presumably all Canadian broad- 
casters, stand to lose a lot more money 
if Phase II implements the concepts of 
“neighbouring rights” and “ephemeral 
rights,” which would require broad- 
casters to reimburse not only the 
authors, composers and publishers of a 
piece, but also the performers, 
producers and recording or publishing 
companies. 


Since so much material comes from 
the United States, this can be inter- 
preted to mean that American artists 
could make huge amounts of money 
through copyright dues received in 
Canada and bring it home. Broadcasters 
would also be strictly limited to the 
number of uses within the defined time 
period specified in contracts. 


When asked how the new rules apply 
to a teacher wanting to use a CBC 
programme in class, O'Reilly was can- 
did. If this teacher wants to show 
several episodes of The Beachcombers, for 
example, he has to buy the rights to the 
episodes at $200 per show from the 
CBC. In reality, he conceded, the CBC 
would not spend the time or effort to 
hunt down teachers who taped it and 
showed it in class. 


“There isn’t very much we can do. 
And there isn’t very much we want to 
do. It is an important violation for us 
because it undermines the marketplace. 
Quite frankly, I have other priorities 
than hiring a police force to. go around 
to universities. I am more concerned 
with off-air taping for commercial use.”

PAPER RECYCLING 


Concordia’s recyling programme 
expanded to include newsprint 


Concordia has turned blue and gray. 
Colour-coded stickers are being affixed 
to every garbage bin in the University 
— and it’s not the work of vandals, it’s 
part of an effort to make recycling on 
campus more efficient. More paper 
products, including newsprint, are 
being accepted for recycling than ever 
before. 

Starting last Monday on the Sir 
George Williams Campus, (March 4 on 
the Loyola Campus), Concordia’s new 
recycling contract with Fibres Canbec 
went into effect. Deskside and class- 
room bins can now be turned into “blue 
bins” simply by affixing the blue stick- 
ers. All paper, including books, 
telephone directories, envelopes with 
or without windows, journals, 
cardboard and newspapers, as well as 
fine paper, can be disposed of in these 
blue-stickered bins. 

A few centrally located bins in each 
department have been designated with 
gray stickers for disposing of unrecycl- 
able trash such as plastic, styrofoam, 
metal, glass, food, food wrappers, carb- 
on paper and paper towels (un- 
hygenic!). 

Innocuous little yellow post-it notes 
are a recycling nightmare. The paper is 
recyclable, but the adhesive turns into 
worm-like goo which clogs the expen- 
sive recycling equipment. The notes 
should be thrown into gray-stickered 
bins. 

The philosophy of recycling is backed 
by hard evidence of years of environ- 
mental misuse and mismanagement. 
Chemistry Professor Michael Hogben, 
who is on the Recycling Committee, 
said this week that the proliferation of 
overloaded landfill dumps is an 
obscene symbol of the post-industrial 
materialistic world. 

“Tt requires a whole new way of think- 
ing to resolve the problem and Concor- 
dia is willing to do its part. Since 75 per 
cent of our waste is paper, instead of 


‘ assuming the “office 


University’s secre- 


throwing everything into the garbage 
and saving paper that can be recycled in 
a separate place, all bins should be for 
recycling and those 
few items that cannot 
be recycled, such as 
coffee cups, old lunch 
bags and ball point 
pens should be dis- 
posed of in the gray 
bins. 

“This new psychol- 
ogy will take time to 
take hold. Mistakes 
will occur at the 
beginning but slowly 
the new world order 
will prevail.” 

Response to this 
week’s initiative so 
far has been good, 
though Hogben said 
the Committee did 
receive some flack for 





manager” role of 
designating recycl- 
able and non-recycl- 
able garbage bins 
would go to the 


tarial workforce. 

“Some secretaries 
objected to this on the 
grounds that this will 
add even rnore work 
to their duties and 
some have decried 
the assumption that 
secretaries (pre- 
dominantly a female 
workforce) should 
have anything to do 
with trash (sounds 
too much like 
stereotypical kitchen 
work). Perhaps the answer is to desig- 
nate an office manager in each depart- 
ment.” 


Programmes for recycling plastic, 
glass and metals are being developed. 
For more information, call Sue Magor, 
Environmental Health and Safety, at 
848-4876 or Hugh Brodie, Office of the 
Rector, at 848-4845. 










Recycling is back in the news 
with a new contract and plan 
for de-inking plants in Québec 


The contract Concordia previously held for recycling was with Domtar 
and Montréal Recycling, who picked up the University’s waste fine paper, 
but not newsprint or envelopes with plastic windows. It was recycled into 
office and kraft paper, the material used to make egg cartons and pizza 
boxes. 

The University also purchases recycled products. For example, Concor- 
dia buys recycled paper that has been bleached at virtually the same price 
as new, virgin bond. About 21 per cent of all photocopying paper is the 
recycled, slightly gray bond. All coin-operated copiers at Concordia use 
the recycled paper, said Cyril Macdonald, Director of Supply and Services. 



































Paper bleaching criticized 





Paper bleaching has been criticized because the paper it produces con- 

tains traces of dioxins and furanes. Concordia uses unbleached, tan- 

coloured recycled paper for its envelopes. Ironically, low demand for this 

paper (it jams photocopiers and makes poorly-contrasted copies) can 

make it up to 67 per cent more expensive than virgin bond. 

Recycling is a good option, but the first choice should be to reduce 
consumption. It takes no fewer than 75,000 trees to print the 
New York Times every Sunday. While producing a tonne of 
recycled paper saves 17 trees, reduction and re-use (such as 
turning paper into note-pads) are better solutions because 
they don’t involve chemical processes which may endanger 
the environment. 


De-inking newsprint has been a stumbling block to the 
effective recycling of newspapers. Concordia’s new recy- 
cling company, Fibres Canbec, sends its newsprint to On- 
tario for de-inking. There are no de-inking plants in Québec 
but three are being planned for next year, at a cost of $50-60 
million each. 


Montréal-area newspapers are not printed on recycled 
newsprint because it isn’t cost-effective to import the 
product from outside Québec. The Globe and Mail, printed 
in Toronto, is the only Canadian newspaper uses recycled 
newsprint. 


What do Québec recycling firms who accept newsprint 
do with it if they don’t send it to Ontario for de-inking? 
Daniel Emond, co-owner of Rebuts Solides, which recycles 
the waste of 10 municipalities on the island, including 
Montréal, said his firm stores the newsprint for about a 
week and then sells it to mills for recycling into office and 
kraft paper.

NON-RECYCLABLE TRASH 


In service of their country 


February 7, 1991 - 7 


Concordia students prepared for their ‘call-up’ 


by Buzz Bourdon 


The images of war have been filling 
our TV screens for two weeks now: 
waves of aircraft bombing far-off tar- 
gets, sirens warning thousands to take 
shelter, prisoners of war hunched 
miserably in front of a camera. 


Crisis holds special fascination 


For Nick Kohner, what's going on in 
the Middle East holds special fascina- 


tion. The second-year Computer 


Science student is a member of the 
Canadian Forces Reserves and a 10-year 
veteran of the Canadian Grenadier 
Guards who holds the rank of colour 
sergeant. He’s the sergeant-major of the 
Guards’ rifle company, in charge of 
about 80 infantry, some of them Concor- 
dia students. 

“I'd probably go if I was called up,” 
Kohner said. “I’ve thought a lot about 
it. I definitely think Canada did the 
right thing to get involved. Saddam 
Hussein’s doing what Hitler did: trying 
to expand. If you let Iraq go unchal- 
lenged, it would be a serious threat to 
the stability of the world.” 


Human rights abuses in Kenya 
to be theme of discussion 


Amnesty International (AI) will present a discussion on human rights 
abuses in Kenya featuring a former Kenyan university professor tomor- 
row (Feb. 8) at 7 p.m., in Room 937 of the Henry F. Hall Building. 


Maina wa Kinyatti, a poet, will talk about his six-year imprisonment 
for doing research on the Mau Mau movement. He was accused of 
possessing seditious publications and spent a year in solitary confine- 
ment. Although he suffered from stomach ulcers and failing eyesight, 
Kinyatti was denied medical treatment for two years, according to Al's 
1989 report on Kenya. He was adopted by the human rights organiza- 
tion in 1985 as a prisoner of conscience because of his non-violent 
beliefs. He sought exile in the United States after his release in 1988, and 
now teaches history at Hunter College in New York. 


More information is available from AI Concordia at 848-7410.

Kohner, who. said he thinks the war 
could go on for at least two years, said 
opinion in his rifle 
company is about 
evenly divided on 
what to do if the militia 
were called up. 

“You've got your 
fanatics who wouldn’t 
hesitate to go, but if we 
were called up, a lot of 
people would just dis- 
appear. They consider 
it a job, not something 
worth endangering 
your life over.” 


No call-up planned 


There’s no doubt in 
Kohner’s mind that the 
reserves will be called 
up, probably by April if 
things don’t get better. 
But Capt. Alain Lefrangois, a public af- 
fairs officer at Canadian Forces Base 
Montréal, said no call-up has been 
planned. 


That suits Laura Toffi just fine, even 
though she’d go if she had to. Toffi, a 
third-year English Literature student, is 
a master corporal in the Black Watch 
(Royal Highland Regiment) of Canada. 
An administrative clerk, Toffi is also a 
qualified military driver, licensed to 
drive many types of military vehicles. 


“If I went over there I'd feel like I’d 
been cheated out of my life if something 
happened to me. [It would be different] 
if Canada was being attacked. Then I 
would defend it.” 


FELLOWSHIP AND 


Peace 


Toffi thinks the war could have been 
avoided if more time had been given to 
negotiations, and if 
the sanctions against 
Iraq had had more 
time to take effect. 
She’s also angry that 
Canada’s traditional 
peacekeeping role has 
been discarded. 

“Our role has al- 

ways been peace- 
keeping. Now it 
seems that role has 
been wasted. We 
should try to promote 
peace instead of send- 
ing troops. [I think] 
Mulroney didn’t real- 
ly consult anyone 
when he sent troops. 
He acted premature- 
ly.” 
The war, according 
to Toffi, also has a lot to do with egos . 
and the mentality of men. “They’re 
egotistical, violent, a bunch of big 
babies.” 





Toffi said the West’s perception of the 
Arab world leaves a lot to be desired. 
“Arabs are always seen as savages. 
Western nations have always looked 
down on others because of a lack of 
understanding. Just because they’ re dif- 
ferent doesn’t mean they’re wrong.” 


The security services should lay off 
the surveillance some Arab-Canadians 
say they’re being subjected to, Toffi 
said. “I don’t like the way they’re treat- 
ing the Arabs here by singling them out. 
They’re citizens.”

Concordian temporarily out of business 


The Concordian, one of the 
University’s two student-run 
newspapers, has ceased publication 
until September 1991. In an an- 
nouncement made last Monday, the 
editors advised the Concordia com- 


munity that due to financial difficul- 


ties, the Concordian could not 
continue to publish. 

In a statement issued, the Concor- 
dian expressed regret that “it is un- 
able to continue fulfilling student 
needs.” 


Underfunding from the student as- 
sociations, frequent personnel chan- 
ges and intolerable working 
conditions were cited as reasons for 
the decision. 

“By ceasing publication at the cur- 
rent time, we will be ensuring this 
cycle is broken and that the Concor- 
dian can give the university what it 
has in the past, a quality newspaper 
representing student interests.”

Job recruiting to begin on Monday 


Job recruiting begins on Monday (Feb. 11) for students in the Department of 
Accountancy and the Department of Management who are graduating this spring 
or who have completed their degree requirements in December and want to obtain 
their Certified Management Accountant (CMA) designation. 


Employers, with the help of the Corporation des comptables en management 
accredités du Québec, will be recruiting students for interviews for full-time 
positions in the management-accounting sector. 


The deadline for participation in the recruitment programme is Feb. 15 at the 
Canada Employment Centre. Employer interviews will be conducted between 
March 18 and April 2 at the Bank of Montréal regional head office in Old Montréal. 


More information is available from the CMA Students’ Committee or the Canada 


Employment Centre, 2070 MacKay.

come a long way since its modest begin- 
nings in the Victoria Gym. She said she 
thinks it’s a good idea for her students 
to get as much exposure as possible 
before they graduate, and this year’s 
performances will go a long way in ac- 
complishing that. 


A concern for students and how they 
develop as dancers and choreographers 
is typical of Langley. 

She said it’s hard for the fine arts to 
survive within institutions. “You have 
to be very watchful that the 
bureaucratic system doesn’t take over 
the creative one. It takes a lot of work — 
you don’t sleep much. We’re very. 
pleased that the programme has been as 
successful as it has been.” 


Over the years, at least 65 people have 
graduated from Contemporary Dance; 
20 are admitted each year. Students 
study dance, acting, music literacy, 
body movement, choreography and 
dance traditions as well as elective cour- 
ses. New courses include dance produc- 
tion, in which students get experience 
with lighting, costumes, make-up, and 
audio and visual technology; techni- 
que, a new set of approaches integrat- 
ing anatomy, alignment, and injury 
prevention; and music for dancers, 
which offers an understanding of music 
through rhythm, aural training and 
music fundamentals in their physical 
and theoretical application. 


You get all sorts in dance, Panet- 
Raymond said. “People come from 
every type of background, from classi- 
cal, jazz, flamenco. We’ve had ex- 
professional gymnasts, soldiers, 
skaters, many different nationalities. 
All they need to have in common is a 
dedication to developing their techni- 
que and creative potential for choreog- 
raphy. It’s very demanding.” 

The Department prides itself on 
giving undergraduates the chance to re- 


—RMB 


search and create their own works, 
Panet-Raymond said. 


It’s the Department's specialization in 
choreography and performance that is 
unique among Canadian universities. 
And its long list of guest lecturers reads 
like a Who’s Who of the international 
dance community. 


“We have a very active programme, 
with guest lecturers and exchanges,” 
Panet-Raymond said. Because “the stu- 
dents can’t travel, [it’s our job] to bring 
these wonderful dance teachers here.”. 


Some of the artists who have lectured 
here over the years include Natsu 
Nakajima, a well-known Japanese 
choreographer, Putu Lastini, a Balinese 
dancer, and composers from Belgium 
and the United States. 


“The wonderful thing,” Panet- 
Raymond said, “is that the students 
maintain contact with these artists. It 
creates a sense of an international dance 
community.” 


Many of the Department’s graduates 
have gone on to tour successfully in 
Canada and other countries. Others 
have set up their own dance companies, 
including 60 cm de fonds, made up of 
four students. (See story, page 2.) 


Now that the first 10 years are over, 
Langley said, it’s time to reflect and 
plan for the next 10. 


“It’s been a great apprenticeship. The 
vision of Alfie Pinsky (founder of 
Concordia’s Faculty of Fine Arts) has 
paid off. He said we should stay small 
and we have. There’s not a lot of need 
in Canada for hundreds of choreog- 
raphers and dancers in contemporary 
dance. [This way] we can deal with stu- 
dents one-on-one. We know them all by 
name and know each step of their crea- 
tive processes. For me, that’s what 
education is all about.” 


AIESEC organizes Earth Fair 
and panel discussion _— 


If you try ringing the Concordia chap- 
ter of AIESEC (Association inter- 
natioale des étudiants en science 
économiques et commerciales) next 
Wednesday (Feb. 13), you may find 
they’re too busy to talk on the phone. 
Head down instead to the mezzanine of 
the Henry F. Hall Building, where mem- 
bers will be involved in the Earth Fair 
from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. From there, ac- 
tivity moves to the D.B. Clarke Theatre 
for a panel discussion between repre- 
sentatives from business, the govern- 
ment, youth groups, special interest 
groups and education. 


AIESEC members work towards 
promoting international comprehen- 
sion and cooperation, developing 
projects which increase student aware- 
ness of the challenges that await them 
as the business leaders of the future. The 
Earth Fair is one such project, providing 
Montréal businesses with an oppor- 
tunity to inform and display environ- 
mentally sound product lines and new 
technologies to the public . 


The panel discussion which follows 
the Earth Fair will feature Jean Denis 
Barry, Coodinator of the the Canadian 
Chamber of Commerce Focus 2000 
programme, Désirée McGraw, a stu- 
dent at Concordia in the School of Com- 
munity and Public Affairs, Harvey 
Mead, assistant Deputy Minister in the 
federal Department for the Environ- 


ment, Concordia Political Science 
Professor Roa Nanduri and Leona Pip- 
pard, President of the Canadian Ecol- 
ogy Advocates and member of the 
National Round Table on the Environ- 
ment. They will discuss the roles of their 
respective sectors in formulating and 
enforcing policies for a harmonious 
balance between business practices and 
how they affect the environment.

Sensitive issue of sexual harassment 


finds its voice in new officer 


by Paul Serralheiro 


Sally Spilhaus believes that her job as 
the University’s Sexual Harassment Of- 
ficer is “to find ways to approach the 
subject without making people angry 
or alienating them.” 

Sexual harassment is a delicate sub- 
. ject, she said, and one of the reasons she 
is on the job today is because of a grow- 
ing recognition of the problem of sexual 
harassment in universities across the 
country and a corresponding desire to 
deal with it. 

The idea behind the job is “to change 
undesirable behaviour rather than go 
out and punish.” 

“I’m anxious to make myself as 
visible as possible,” said Spilhaus, who 
began at the beginning of this term. Her 
duties, as she sees them, are to increase 
awareness of sexual harassment and to 
assist and advise complainants and 
respondents involved in harassment 
cases. 


Innocent appeals 


Spilhaus said she recognizes the dif- 
ference between flirtation and harass-

director general of les Fonds 
pour la formation de cher- 
cheurs et l’aide a la recherche 
(FCAR), it was announced 
recently. 


She will serve in that post until 
January 1994. 


Marrec has had various ad- 
ministrative posts since 1980, 
including work for the Minister 
of Justice and the Office of the 
Solicitor General. She holds a

ment, and does not want to fuel the 
perception that the two are the same. 
“Men must be responsible for their 
sexual responses, and women are 
responsible for their own as well.” 


She believes that sexual harassment is 
part of a continuum that starts with 
what appear to be innocent appeals and 
can lead to battery and murder. 


In her previous job as director of 
Auberge Madeleine, a shelter for home- 
less women, Spilhaus saw “lots of 
problems that have parallels to what 
happens here,” although she added that 
she worked with “women who were 
marginalized and were at the extreme 
end of the sexual harassment con- 
tinuum.” 


Spilhaus’ work with all constituent 
programmes, such as the Ombuds Of- 
fice, the Legal Information Office and 
other services in the University, is im- 
portant for the effective functioning of 
the office, she said. 


In a survey on student services last 
year, the Department of Sociology 
revealed that 3 per cent of the male and 
7 per cent of the female students polled 
reported having been sexually 
harassed. 


A record of events 


“When considering whether to lodge 
a complaint,” Spilhaus urged, “com- 
plainants should keep a record of the 
events, with times, places and names of 
witnesses.” Once complainants ap- 
proach her, Spilhaus outlines possible 
courses of action, formal procedures 
and consequences. Then the com- 
plainants decide what course of action 
to take. “This service is totally confiden- 
tial, and complainants will have total 
control,” Spilhaus said. 


She said she is encouraged by the 
positive way she has been received and 
by favourable responses to the harass- 
ment policy, which she sees as “an ex- 
tension of rights and freedoms.” 





Concordia’s Policy on Sexual Harassment, adopted by the Board of Gover- 
nors last May, is up to the new Sexual Harassment Officer, Sally Spilhaus, 
to publicize and enforce. It states: “The university considers sexual harass- 
ment in all its forms, whether subtle or overt, to be a serious offence. Sexual 
harassment is a form of discrimination, of violence or both. It infringes on 
fundamental human rights and undermines personal dignity and integrity. It 
interferes with the work, study and academic environment of the University.” 


According to the policy, sexual harassment in the case of women is “a

Working to improve 
the quality of student life 


by Jean-Rene Ello 


The quality of student life at Concor- 
dia has been one of Donald Boisvert’s 
abiding interests since his under- 
graduate days here in the early 1970s. 

Now, as the new Associate Vice-Rec- 
tor Services for Student Life, it is his 
number one priority. 

“Education doesn’t happen only in 
the classroom after all. Students’ physi- 
cal, emotional and spiritual needs also 
have to be considered. When you get 
right down to it, that’s what student 
services are all about. 

“The University has a public commit- 
ment to improving the quality of stu- 
dent life and I want to make sure that 
happens.” 

During his three-year term, Boisvert 
will oversee the Departments of Fitness, 
Recreation and Athletics, Guidance Ser- 
vices and the Office of the Dean of Stu- 
dents. He will also help ensure that 
students benefit as much as possible 
from the services offered by the Admis- 
sions and Liaison Departments, as well 
as the Office of the Registrar. 

Initially, he wants to restructure the 
student services sector so that its 
various departments can better com- 
municate with students and each other. 

“The University is doing a first-rate 
job in providing for students, but times 
change and so do students, and natural- 
ly we’ve got to adapt to better serve 
everybody. 

“Students should never feel in- 
timidated about seeking help when 
they have a problem. It’s my duty to see 
that the various department directors 
are approachable. 

“Although my primary contact will 
be with department directors, students 
can still come to me if they have any 
problems. 

“I think I’m sensitive to student’s is- 
sues and needs, and I’m definitely there 
to defend students’ interests.” 

Boisvert received both his Bachelor’s

and Master’s degrees at Concordia, and 
has been a University employee since 
1980, working first in the Office of the 
Dean of Students, then as Assistant to 
the Vice-Rector Academic, and then As- 
sistant and Executive Assistant to the 
Rector. Prior to that, from 1973 to 1974, 
he was Co-President of the Loyola 
Students’ Association. 

In addition to his Associate Vice-Rec- 
tor duties, Boisvert spends two days a 
week as Acting Director of Guidance 
Servces, overseeing everything from 
career information to personal coun- 
selling.
