Security Alert
Over the weekend a man approached a group in the Meeting House and
demanded $20 from them. He said he would not leave until they gave him
the money. The group finally gave him the $20 and he left.
Unfortunately the group did not call the police. We are encouraging
them to do that now, in case this man has done similar things in the
area. I wanted you all to be aware of this incident. Remember, if you
ever feel threatened by anyone on the campus please call 911 so that the
Newton Police Department can respond immediately. We want you to be

Information for Canadian Students in the United States about Canada's
Election, January 23rd

Dear Canadian Students in the United States,

As you probably know, Canadians will vote in the 39th general election
on January 23, 2006. I hope you will participate in the electoral
process and cast your vote. In this election, as is in all elections,
your vote counts!

For information on the Canadian election and information on how you can
watch the election coverage on January 23rd, I invite you to visit

Canadians in several cities across the United States are getting
together to watch election returns come in on January 23. If you will
be in or near Washington D.C., Atlanta, Los Angeles, Philadelphia,
Raleigh-Durham or San Francisco, visit to see
further event details or RSVP for one of these events.

The Canadian-owned Elephant & Castle restaurant and pub will be showing
election results on their screens that night. The Elephant & Castle has
locations across the US, including locations in Chicago, Boston, Cherry
Hill (NJ), San Diego, Seattle, as well as locations just outside
Pittsburgh and Harrisburg (PA). For a full list visit the Elephant &
Castle site (

If you can't be near any of these locations, C-SPAN has confirmed to
us that they will be broadcasting results beginning at 9:30 pm EST on
either C-Span 1 or 2. has links to election
coverage delivered by the major media, if you want to watch the election
on the web. If you are organizing an election night event and would
like us to highlight it on our website for other Canadians, let us know

In the longer term, we hope you will find a useful
resource. I encourage you to visit the site, sign up for information
alerts, and become part of the network of Canadians living in the U.S.

Best wishes with your studies in 2006!
