The Algonquin Wolves women’s basketball team opened its season with a win on Friday night, defeating the St. Lawrence Surge 73-48 in front of an engaged home crowd.

The hosts scored 12 straight points to end the first quarter, 17-7 and went into halftime leading 40- 20.

Head coach Jaime McLean was pleased with his team’s offensive effort in their season opener.

“Offensively we were playing well,” he said. “We were running through things and we stayed within ourselves which created points for us which was great. During the preseason when we broke out of what we do we were turning the ball over because we didn’t know where our teammates were. Today we played within our systems and we knew where to find teammates.”

Minutes after 1 p.m. on Oct. 31, the Student Commons resembled nothing of its usual state. Flooded with laughter, music and the sounds of carving utensils hitting the table, it was a picture of joy.


Students and faculty worked hard to spread Halloween spirit in every direction. A large blow-up Mr. Potato Head had heads turning from each connecting hallway. People wore Wicked Witch of the West costumes personalized with webs and spiders.

There were enough pumpkins to fill a pumpkin patch and students in costumes gathered to enjoy the Halloween festivities, starting with The Great Pumpkin Party.


Broadcaster and political rookie Mark Sutcliffe will be moving into the mayor's office after defeating his main opponent, Catherine McKenney, in the Oct. 24 municipal election.

A lifelong resident of the nation's capital, he will take over for Jim Watson, who has been Ottawa's mayor since 2010.

"What a beautiful night in Ottawa," Sutcliffe said during the opening remarks of his victory speech at Lago restaurant on Dow's Lake.

"I love Ottawa, and that's never been more true than today."

Sutcliffe's centrist campaign led him to victory over 13 other candidates, despite having no prior political experience.

Starting Nov. 15, any student with a study permit and off-campus work authorization will be able to work more than the current maximum of 20 hours per week.

The federal pilot project is being established to help combat the country's labour shortages.

"International students will get to be exposed to a continuous working environment to help them prepare for their future endeavours," said Brian Padre-e, a fourth-year business management and entrepreneurship student from the Philippines. "It will help the country deal with labour shortages while allowing students to save up for all their basic necessities."


The Algonquin Wolves men's basketball team faced off against the St. Lawrence Surge at home on Oct. 28 and won the season opener 70-59.

The Wolves had an intense start as guard Nathan Garcia drained a three-pointer to set the tone for the game. He put up a strong performance, notching 14 points, four assists and a rebound.

Garcia also shot 66.7 per cent from both the three-point line and in midrange from the field. He was a defensive powerhouse, putting up three steals and a block to lead the brick wall that the Wolves formed as their interior defence.

Forward Ted Braden was a big help with getting the ball in the Wolves possession throughout the game. He made 15 rebounds, in addition to his nine points and four assists. He also contributed heavily to the defence with five steals.
