An Evening with William Shatner feels a lot like being beamed to another planet. Captain Kirk took the helm at Ottawa’s EY Centre last night, in a special ticketed fan event ahead of this weekend’s Ottawa Pop Expo. The energetic, eccentric 84-year-old, clad in a black leather jacket, came as advertised.

First Past The Post

Fri, 2015-10-30 11:25

I hazard a guess that a "no eating at your desk" policy is observed but I don't get round to asking because Imran Amed (BCom'97) is in full flight.
