The newly created McGill Research Centre for Physical Activity & Health serves as a focal point for researchers with an interest in promoting health through physical activity. To set the wheels in motion, we have organized our first annual symposium entitled: "Making Connections”. Speakers include active members and collaborators in our research centre, along with others with whom we hope to generate new linkages.

This documentary follows the events of the West Memphis Three, a case in which three teenagers (Jessie Misskelley, Damien Echols and Jason Baldwin) were arrested for the murders of three 8-year old children. The West Memphis Three were convicted of murder and remained in prison for more than 18 years. West of Memphis focuses on Terry Hobbs, stepfather of Stevie Branch, one of the victims of the 1993 crime, as a potential suspect due to physical evidence linking him to the crime. The film reveals that inexplicably Terry Hobbs was never interviewed by police at the time of the murders.
