Hundreds of people turned out on Sunday to take part in the annual Terry Fox Run. The event, which raises money for cancer research, is named after the young one-legged athlete who succumbed to cancer while making a trek across Canada. The run began on campus and was the focal point for a day filled with live music and a host of activities. The Students' Society of McGill University organized the event along with the Terry Fox Foundation.

Mergers aren't always smooth or happy affairs in a university setting. But the recent marriage between the Department of Art History and the Graduate Program in Communications is generating plenty of excitement among professors and students.

Of genes and greens

Rima Rozen's research determined the genetic causes underlying the dangerous -- but often preventable -- disorders spina bifida and heart disease. Want to stay healthy? Then eat your spinach and broccoli like your mom told you to.

Marriage on the sidelines

The major academic theories used to analyze courtship tend to leave something out, says McGill's Daniel Cere. Like love, maybe?

The coming water wars

Will we come under increasing pressure to sell our water to the U.S.? Or will the Americans just take it?

Slice of life: Working for school, schooling for work

With the cost of living these days, it's hard to make ends meet as a student if you don't have a part-time job on the side. Some students discuss the payoffs and pitfalls of a paying gig.

McGill Redmen defensive back Andrew Cook lunges for a ball during Saturday's game against the arch-rival Queen's Golden Gaels. The Redmen stormed their way to a 30 to 15 victory.
