Ever since the announcement of the federal election (set for May 2, so mark your calendars), there have been two reactions: either a flurry of excitement — including newspaper diving and furious Googling — for political buffs, or a barely suppressed sigh of apathetic annoyance. For Torontonians, the mayoral election is still fresh in their minds, and it seems like all too soon, they’ll have to make that arduous trek to the nearest government-approved public space to scribble in their choices with nubby pencils.

Last spring, the Winnipeg and Manitoba universities mingled inspiration, hard work, and solid planning to create a legal help centre. Almost exactly one year later, this dream is now planted, quite solidly, in the reality of the University of Winnipeg’s campus. Located on Spence Street, the Legal Help Centre offers seminars and legal advice for the people in their community.

The beginning of the year is not a particularly pleasant time for most Canadians. It means back to work, blizzards, and no official holidays. For many 1L students, there is another reason to dread it — moots. The moot is usually students’ first oral presentation in front of their peers (unless you count drunken karaoke). It is nerve-wracking, to say the least. Fears of stammering, turning beet red, and worse, bursting into tears, run rampant.
