The halls of Leacock were well decked with all manner of Christmas and holiday-related fare when the Centraide Craft Fair set up shop on December 1. Items on sale included foodstuffs, stained glass, wood crafts and candles, to which Mildred Martinez (elementary education) and Alec Amarica (pre-med) took a shine.

Letter from the editor



In Focus


Patrick Blue has seen almost everything as head of security at Macdonald campus. He restores his soul growing organic Christmas trees on his own land. Were it not for bad handwriting, the Bellairs Research Institute in Barbados might have gone to the U of T. Recently, it celebrated its 50th anniversary as a McGill institution.

McGill Matters

Senate


Text-matching software and ancillary services lead to a debate on the very nature of Senate's oversight.

Around campus


The Redpath ethnology collection gets a room of its own, staff and students are invited to strap on their blades at two different skating parties, Chaplaincy wants your woollies, the Jewish General wants to help you butt out in the New Year, and the bookstore is offering a special discount for staff.
