Who knew that you could fight cancer by dribbling?

A team of students from the Odette School of Business have organized a three-on-three basketball tournament Saturday, March 16, as a fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Every player in the Hoops4Change tournament will receive a gym bag and t-shirt, but only the winners will get the chance to take on local celebrities for the title!

City booster named Windsor’s poet laureate

Being named Windsor’s first poet laureate is a great honour, says Marty Gervais.

“I’m very proud of this community and I’m a great promoter of it and so for them to choose me to lead the way in this regard makes me feel great,” he said.

Windsor city council appointed Gervais, resident writing professional in the UWindsor English department and a publisher, columnist and poet, to the post November 28.

Councillor Percy Hatfield called him an outstanding choice.
