St. Andrew's College Prof. Nettie Wiebe, federal New Democratic Party Leader Jack Layton and Canadian nationalist author Mel Hurtig chat before speaking at an anti-missile defence rally in Arts 241 on the evening of Feb. 28. Below, a folk-music trio warms up the crowd of 250 before the speeches. Canadian flags and anti-ballistic missile defence placards gave the event the feeling of a 1960s anti-war protest. The rally was organized by U of S Education Prof. Richard Julien. Hurtig told On Campus News he has spoken at nine Canadian universities recently and he sees momentum against U.S. President George Bush's missile defence plans. "What pleases me the most are the huge numbers of young people getting involved."
