Food Not Bombs Barrie 4th Community Dinner

Thursday January 24th 7:00 pm

January 24th will be our Fourth Community Dinner so come out with empty bellies and open hearts! We are, as always, in need of food donations, so please contact us on the Facebook page or e-mail us at if you have donations or leads on donations. Please keep in mind it needs to be vegetarian / vegan.

Food Not Bombs, as you probably know, is a global movement dedicated to promoting awareness of the causes of poverty and injustice while challenging our society’s out of control military spending. By coming to the dinner you are making a statement that people of all ages and backgrounds should share food and their experiences as a community.

Everything is provided except for your sweet self so be sure to come and check it out. Donations are welcome and go to covering costs and keeping the D.I.Y. open. We will be screening a documentary: Kanehsatake 270 Years of Resistance.
This documentary is a first-hand record of the Oka Crisis on a Mohawk reserve in Quebec. The recent Idle No More movement makes this an especially relevant time to see the film so don’t miss it.

We look forward to seeing everyone there,

Cheers from FNB Barrie.



LEA Scrabble Pub Night


Join the Laurentian English Association on Friday January 25 at 10pm at the Ascent Lounge above British Arms for our ‘Scrabble’ Pub Night! Get a letter, make words while mingling with your peers, and win prizes for ‘Most Points’, ‘Most Creative Word’, and of course ‘Dirtiest Word’ (mud doesn’t count, folks).

This is a 19+ event and there is no cover charge, so come on out and meet some fellow L@G students and the LEA!

Request to Graduate Forms due Friday January 25th

Are you graduating this year? If so, congratulations! Make sure to fill out a request to graduate form and hand it into the Registrar before next Friday (January 25th). Forms can be picked up at the LSU office (E112 A) or at the UPC office (C 310).

Students are encouraged to see their academic adviser if they have any questions or concerns regarding course requirements or graduation requirements.

Students who were unable to take the second half of a required course because it was not offered and instead replaced it with an alternate course must inform Professor Johns so that he can make a record of it (C 302). This is extremely important, as it will affect your ability to graduate.

Regular and Latex Free Condoms Now Available

Cruise by the LSU office and grab some free swag! We now have regular and latex free condoms available, along with information on safer sex and consent culture! Be smart, be safe!


Model Parliament Trip 2013

Well folks, tomorrow is the day. Don’t forget that the bus will be leaving the round about at 8:00 am so we ask that all students are at the college by 7:30 am. Once we arrive in Ottawa Parliament tours will commence at 5:30 pm on the Hill. Tours are mandatory so that students can obtain their security pass. For details regarding parties, speeches, rooming arrangements and itineraries, students should check their Georgian e-mail addresses. These (and all other necessary) details will be provided once on the bus.

See you there!
