Campus briefs

The Tory Quad will see the addition of a new memorial this fall, in honour of the late Senator Eugene Forsey, a leading authority on the Constitution of Canada, and a visiting professor at Carleton for 18 years. Forsey was best known to Canadians as the author of innumerable wise and witty letters to newspapers on subjects ranging from the use of the English language, to the workings of government.

Professor Emeritus of History, David Farr, says the memorial to Forsey honours an important Canadian. “Dr. Forsey was a distinguished authority who had a long association with the University.” The memorial project was initiated by Peyton Lyon, a retired Professor of Political Science.

After his death in 1991, Forsey is still remembered by many Canadians for leaving a rich legacy of knowledge of how Canadians are governed.

Congratulations to Greg Aulenback, one of Carleton University’s Undergraduate Recruitment Tour Guides, who was nominated as a “Star of the City.” The third-year film studies student from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, spent his summer showing new students and their parents around Carleton’s picturesque campus. A campus tour participant, who praised Aulenback for giving an “interesting and incredibly informative tour of Carleton,” nominated him for the award. Nominees receive a certificate from the Stars of the City Committee and are invited to celebrate their achievement at the Stars of the City Recognition Evening.
