In late February, the landscape from my office is one 
of snow banks and it is hard to realise that in just a 
few short months we will be at School Closing. This 
is always a special time in the life of the School. 
This school year has been one of triumphs and trag- 
edies. The fall season was one of triumph for our 
various teams, with marvellous success in Football, 
Senior and junior, as well as in Girls' Basketball. 
Also, our Soccer teams acquitted themselves admira- 
bly. In many other activities the school has experi- 
enced great success. In this second half of the year, 
we can anticipate many more successes. 
Sadly, some of our Ashbury families have experi- 
enced great personal tragedy. At times such as these, 
the events of school which seem so important be- 
come second place to an atmosphere where support 
and comfort is abundant. Our students and staff 
show tremendous loyalty and compassion to their 
friends in distress, and that is a most uplifting char- 
acteristic of the school. This human touch is of vital 

During the Christmas break, I decided that it was 
time to retire from the Headmastership of Ashbury. 
Fourteen exciting and rewarding years have passed 
by at an alarming rate and it is time to hand over the 
task of leadership of Ashbury when the school is in 
good shape. Dorothy and I will leave many good 
friends in the school community of board members, 
parents, students and staff. It will be difficult to say 
goodbye. We have been privileged to work with 
many great people and, hopefully, together we have 
made a difference. 

Best wishes to an excellent graduating class ~ and 
you are an excellent group with whom to graduate!

Sometimes it seems that life is full of them. Deadlines for 
assignments, term papers and Independent Study projects. 
Deadlines tor tests, tven life outside of school has ciead- 
lines. Birthday and Christmas presents have to be ready 
on time. Mother's Day and Father's Day are important too. 
So are all the other days. Deadlines are everywhere. 
There are two kinds of deadlines really: Those you set for 
others, and those that others set tor you. The ones that you 
set for others often seem to be the most important. Some- 
times we think that what we want from others is more 
important than what others want from us. It seems quite 
natural. But think about it. It is a two way street. 
Meeting deadlines is important. Whether the deadline is 
self-imposed or set by someone else, it is important to try 
to meet it. Meeting a deadline is a personal victory in a 
sense. It is a kind of success. 

The yearbook staff struggles with deadlines all the time. 
The students want a good yearbook as soon as they can get 
it . . The yearbook publisher has deadlines for submission. 
So the Ashburian staff sets deadlines for pictures and 
write-ups. They work hard to meet internal and external 
deadlines all through the year. They ask things from us so 
that they can do things for us. 

So this book is a success. Theirs and ours. We made it 
Enjoy your suceess.

Dr. Peter Orange began his IB career at the Inter- 
national School of Geneva, Switzerland in the late 
1970's. He has taught English, Theatre Arts, French 
and Information Technology. He has chaired Steer- 
ing and Subject Committees of the IB as well as 
being a Senior Examiner and Moderator. During 
his career, he has been instrumental in developing 
and offering teacher training workshops for the 
I.B. in both North America and Europe, as well as 
lecturing in Oxford, Cambridge ancl Boston dur- 
ing the summer months. He was an Assistant 
Professor at Homerton Ct)llege, Cambridge Uni- 
versity where he lectured in educational theory. 
Dr. Orange came to Ashbury this September from 
Philemon Wright High School in Hull. 




Christine Tordon joined the Ashbury staff this September 
after a career as Assistant Director of Admissions at Saint 
Mary's University at Halifax and as Registrar at Turnbuli 
School /Learning Centre here in Ottawa. 
It has been a busy year that has just flown by! hi September, 
October and November, university representatives from 
Ontario, out of province and the United States visited the 
Grade 13s's. hi earlv October, six applications were sent off to 
both Oxford and Cambridge. November was spent preparing 
the Ontario applications and other applications to the United 
Kingdom. Also, in November, Ashbury hosted, for the first 
time, a British Columbia University Night for students and 
parents interested in our school and the city ot Ottawa. In 
January, we sent over 20 applications to universities in B.C., 
hopefully ensuring another B.C. night next year. Continuing 
with past traditions, McGill received over 50 applications 
from our students. In addition, there is a lot of interest in other 
out of province universities as well as the United States. And 
in no time at all, graduation will be here.

"Please could \ou write something up about the IB lor the 
yearbook? ..." 

As I try to wade through the mountain of paper that conies 
through the door to my office 1 struggle to think of what to say 
other Uian "Somebody help me witti this paper monster in my 
office!!!" Then it conies to me . . . the IB at Ashbury is all about 
some dedicated teachers trying to guide (and yes, sometimes, 
drag!) a group of highly (most of the time!) motivated stu- 
dents through what is'generally accepted to be the most 
demanding nigh school programme in the world. Last year 
we had 20 full Diploma candidates who all earned their 
Diploma (11 of these earned theBiiingualDiploma). Ihey did 
this while earning an average Diploma score of more than 35, 
which was above the world average. 

This year we have 27 Diploma candidates, 10 of whom will 
earn the Bilingual Diploma. With up to 37 possible candidates 
for the year after, the popularity of the programme continues 
to grow, as does the amount of paper generated by the 
students and by the IB. It surely all comes back to the teachers 
who maf.e the programme vvhat it is here - outstanding!

Soon the blazer will come off, and so now is 
the time to reflect . . . 

The Junior School was the greatest start to 
my time at Ashbury. In class and on the 
field, my Junior teachers taught me about 
hard work and the need to excel in all 
pursuits. Once the green blazer had been 
traded for blue, opportunities presented 
themselves, which have turned into memo- 
ries -- Jr. Football, Jr. Rugbv, Debating, 
Japan, German\-, Sr. Football (Ironman - 
then quit for Tennis . . . ummm), Sr. Rugb\'. 
With \vhom it all began and will continue - 
Da\"e French, and Forever The Man - Aidan 
Thompson (It will never end . . .),Malhotra's 
(for Tait), the Blitz, the Lunch Crew Table 
(Dre\v, Dan, Tait, Lee, Jacob Brain, Jer), 
summers in Berlin (Volker, Imme), after- 
school watching Blind Date, and so much 
more. This \ear with the Prefects has been 
busy and fun, and I have learned a lot from 
the experience. I never could have done it 
without mv friends, and a 'thank vou' to mv 
parents for all of the opportunities, and you 
too Tanya.

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same 
number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, 
Michelangelo. Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas 
Jefferson, and Albert Einstein. ~ H, Jackson Brown 

Ashbury has been like a home to me. At 
least it feels that way after being here till 
six each night. It is a very special and 
unique place. No matter where I go or 
what I do, it will always be with me in 
some way. This year was special as it 
brought me closer to my school and my 
fellow students. I am very fortunate to 
have had the opportunity to meet and 
work with many students who I never 
would have met otherwise. There is a 
lot that can be learned from them. 
1 enjoy what I do despite what other 
people may think. Ashbury is changing 
and it is an honour to be among those 
who are able to make a difference. 
This year's Council was fun. This was 
the first year that we have been around 
and we did a great job. We may not have 
seen eye to eye on everything but we got 
things done on time and looking pretty. 
You guys will be just fine. Good luck 
and remember to enjoy what you do. 



This year has been a time for learning and accomplishment for the 
Student Council. With our first full year now behind us we can 
say that life at Ashbury is now very different than before. While 
striving to improve the quality of life for our fellow students, our 
main objective is to showcase the special talents of our gifted 
student body. We attempted to create a whole new genre of 
programs that did not exist before our time. Niners Week, the 
Pancake Breakfast, Oscar Night, Matchmaker, just to name a few, 
are new programs initiated this year. 

A large amount of recognition and thanks should be mentioned 
for an exceptional amount of support and hard work contributed 
to Council activities. I would like to thank the Council for their 
dedication to a strong year with big results. The students of the 
school should be proud of their reps as they served them to the 
fullest. A man who deserves more recognition than this page will 
allow is the one and only Mr. Holman. Thanks to all the students 
and administration for making this year possible.

This past fall, the junior football team 
spent o\'er one hundred hours prac- 
ticing on the barren Ashbur\- plaving 
field. Our stellar season ended with a 
respectable record of 7 wins and 2 
losses, with only one loss in regular 
season plav. The dedicated core of 
about 40 junior plavers were totally 
committed to a championship season 
in 1999. The captains, Xick Skok- 
Hobbs, Alex Jackson, Devin Macleod, 
Matt Runalls, and Alex Young, helped 
inspire the team. With a record of 5-1 
after the regular season, we cruised 
through playoffs. The final, plaved at 
Minto field, was a grueling experi- 
ence for the team. We failed to bring 
back our trophv, losing 35-22 to the 
St-Marks squad. Despite the untimeh' 
loss, the team members should be 
proud of an excellent season, and all 
the sacrifices, sweat, and blood that 
went into making Ashbury football 
an unforgettable experience. Thanks 
to Jeff A\-er)-, Jim Colton, Al Moffatt 
and Jim Clarke, Mr. Keyes and Coach 
Stableford. Thanks also to all the 
graduating plavers, the coaches, and

Epic. After a close call with St. Pete's in last 
year's city finals, the old boys regrouped for 
one last kick at the can. After deciding to 
play AA under the guidance of our new 
super coach, Mr. Smith, we were joined by a 
bunch of fresh new faces. The pre-season 
training dragged on for three weeks with 
more cones than Pat wants to remember. As 
the regular season began. Coach Guarisco 
armed his offence with deep threats at every 
position. Led by Aaron and Jamie and fol- 
lowed by the tight ends, our pass happy 
offence pulled the trigger on six straight 
wins! The regular season was made memo- 
rable by large crowds, Dick's dominance of 
opposing offences, and some new kid who 
thought ne could take a pass 41 yards for a 
score and then base a movie around it. When 
^reparations for the playoffs arrived, Stu, 
ames, Simon, Chris, and the rest of the new 
dds established themselves as a force to be 
reckoned with on the eastern Ontario foot- 
ball scene. After defeating Sir Will and 
Gloucester, we once again round ourselves 
in the city finals, this time against St. Mark's. 
From the start, we were all over them. The 
Big Leb came back to drive down for the final 
score, which drove the nail in the coffin for 
St. Mark's. It was an emotional afternoon. To 
everyone training for the repeat, work hard, 
play harder. Final score: 21-7. Final record: 

9-0. Hail to the victors!

Despite the wind, rain, and snow, the 
AshburyCross-Country Running Team had 
an extraordinary season. With one of our 
largest and most dedicated teams to date, 
the team trained hard and showed amazing 
results at the OBE and National Capital Races. 
All of our members placed within the top 25! 
Both the senior bo\'s and midget girls teams 
both competed at OFSAA, which was held 
in Toronto. This was the first time Ashbur\' 
ever had a x-countr\' team place for OFSAA. 
We ended the year with a well-deserved 
runners' meal at The Hard Rock Cafe. Thus, 
ha\'ing our best season to date, we would 
like to thank Mrs. Holman and Ms. Martel 
fortheirterrificcoaching, support, and lead- 
ership. We would also like to thank and wish 
the best of luck to David Roulston, Justin 
Rocheleau, Rod Diaz, and Christian Muller. 
This year paved yet another great path for 
continued successes next year. (Ben Barry)

The tennis season started off with the annual invitational 
tournaments. Both the A and B teams played well, and had a 
postive start to the season. The B team qualified in boys 
singles, boys doubles and mixed doubles for the City Cham- 
pionships. All teams played very well and advanced to the 
finals. The team of Bavidra and Charles were victorious in 
boys doubles, Jon and Katrina were victorious in mixed 
doubles and Jon was the runner up in boys sirigles. The team 
was the overall boys champions. Congratulations on an 
excellent season. 

The A team qualified the entire team for the City Champion- 
ships by winning the qualifying tournament. In the champi- 
onships, we placed four teams in the five possible finals. 
Jacob and Natalie were mixed doubles champions, Phillip 
and Troy were the boys doubles champions, Kelley and 
Jamie were the runners up in the singles categories. The team 
was the overall City Champions. 

Best of luck and thank you to all graduating players. (R.

The Junior Girls' Soccer team enjoyed a highly 
competitive season this term, which com- 
menced with the Indoor Tournament at 
Kingston and closed with the Outdoor at Rich- 
mond . Due to the size of Ashburv, the team was 
generally outnumbered and outclassed by the 
teams from the larger schools in Tier 1. How- 
ever, despite some early defeats, the Ashbury 
team was quicklv strengthened by the level of 
competition, and demonstrated certain charac- 
ter when pla\'ing against the odds. Their effort 
and determination was rewarded in the final 
tournament when an exhausted and limping 
team of 10, and no substitutes, pulled off the 
impossible, winning a game to qualify for the 

The coaches wish to acknowledge and con- 
gratulate every player for her contribution; in 
particular, Stephanie Gaty for scoring most of 
our goals, Lauren Power (Capt.) and Caitlin 
Fullerton for winning Most Valuable Player, 
and Caroline Welsh and Sophie Duchesne for 
winning Most Impro\'ed Player.

Well, what can I say? We moved up to division 
one and left our regular season undefeated. 
Unfortunately, the only loss we had came in the 
quarterfinals, cutting our season short. But we 
had a great year despite our loss. Nicko and 
Hardie. World Cup Practices. Nicko with his 
'not quite successfully executed moves' (i.e. 
tripping over the ball and landing on his butt). 
A couple of tournaments; South Carleton - one 
step closer to the ultimate victory, there's al- 
ways next year. Alicia kept us going with her 
'who let the dogs out!!' chant. Nick made us 
laugh with his inane comments like 'unlucky,' 
'marveleous,' and 'what you see.' We'd like to 
wish the graduating players luck in the future;

The Junior Boys' Soccer team enjoyed some success this year, but also suffe: 
some disappointing defeats. Both the players and the coaches felt the team v 
capableof more, but missed opportunities and inconsistent performance pro\ 
too costly, and qualification for the plav-offs was not to be. 
The team had recruited a sizeable number of new Grade 9 players this year z 

looks forward to next season when it will be stronger and more experienced. At the same time, we bid a fond farewell tothegraduat 

plavers who contributed to our successes and who helped de\elop our vounger plavers. 

Charles Lazaro is a quiet and unassuming plaver who made a significant impact during two games when he put his powerful s 

to use and produced excellent goals. He could always be relied upon for his positive attitude and enthusiasm for the game. 

Uros Maksimovic proxided a shining example to the younger players with his focus and serious attitude in both practices and garr 

He was alwavs willing to examine his game and be self-critical - a rare quality at this level. He is experienced in most positions on 

field, but his strength is defense. 

Rasheed Musa proxided the backbone to the team's defense, but could be placed in any position. He is physically strong and skillfi 

advanced for his age, and can motixate others. He was a superior player who offered more to the team than he received. He had h 

expectations of himself and his fellow teammates and helped to raise the level of play in others. 

Ian Rutherforci displayed flashes of brilliance this year with his speed and his goals. When his timing is right and he anticipates 

play, he has the acceleration to beat most defenders and proxide the team with a goal-scoring opportunity. Ian showed good leaders 

as one of the graduating players, and demonstrated commitment throughout the season. 

Pierre Tipple is a master of ball control. He made a significant contribution as stopper by gaining possession of the ball and stifl 

an opposing attack. When he combined this with a succcessful pass to his forward players, he created some of our best counter-attac 

Pierre has an infectious passion for the game, which was a positive influence in others. 

1 wish to thank these players for all their hard work and look forward to following their sporting careers 

through the senior years.

The Senior Boys Soccer Team unexpectedly met and 
burpassed all expectations this year tollowing the 
loss of almost half the team and many key players to 
graduation last year. This, however, allowed the 
younger players coming up from the Juni(.)r Team 
and tne new players to step up, which they did 
commendably. Tne team actually did better than 
last year's team, making it to the quarterfinals where 
we lost to number-one ranked Lester B. f^earson. We 
also finished third overall in this year's C.A.I.S. 
tournament held at Country Day School in Toronto. 
Overall, it was a great year filled with many high- 
lights, including Round 2 of the traditional hotel 
beats - Tyler, were you supposed to get it two years 
in a row?] would like to extend my thanks, on behalf 
of all of the players, to Mr. Hardie and Mr. McKirdy 
for their endless encouragement and commitment 
to the team. Thanks to all tne graduating players for 
their hard work over the years and good luck to next 
year's team.

Junior girls basketball had a great season this year with lots 
of fun and hard work. We started off strong and made it to the 
semi finals where we lost to some tough competition. Twelve

nights stuck at different schools . . , but that's okay we've 
always got Starburst soccer. And don't forget our "free" food

and patience she ga\-e us. Good luck to the team next vear!

Wow, what a year Ashbury Senior Girls had. 

Few were the times Sparks and Hugh got mad. 

Winning so many tournaments and games. 

Even reporters were mentioning our names. 

We had caring fans out on so many days. 

To clap and to cheer for our beautiful plays. 

Our opponents were weak, until the end of the season. 

Mind you, we kept winning, but for a different reason. 

Before we played Glebe, no word of a lie. 

We were so pumped up, 1 couldn't help but cry. 

We wanted that win so very very bad. 

And when we did, it made us oh so glad. 

We qualified for AAA OFSAA, a historical feat. 

We deserved to be there and we were ready to compete. 

It all came to an end though, on one Friday night. 

When Kate Poulin went down, and we lost the fight. 

Fifth place in the province did make us proud. 

But knowing it was over, made us cry out loud. 

Since only 'Lish and 1 won't be back next year, 

Ashbury will reign again, opponents, beware. 

It's been a great time, we'll never forget. 

The memories we have, on that you can bet. 

I love all you girls, Mr. Sparks and Hugh too. 

You guys are the best, and I'll really miss you. 

This year's Junior Boy's Basketball team was faced with 
many difficulties from the start, but tl"iroughout the season, 
performed admirably. Coached by Mr. Holman and Mr. 
Moore, the team managed a moderately successful 1-10 
record. We participated in a tournament at Holy Trinity, 
although did not adx'ance substantially. With man\' players 
injured and other prior commitments, a few nanies stood out 
and played well consistently, game in game out. Alex Patrick 
and Ai"ithon\- De Jesus were among these t\^es of players. 
Next year, the team is sure to mature and flourish after tliis 
year's difficult (at times) learning experience. We would like 
to thank the fans that supported us tliroughout the season. 
Howe\'er, most thanks should be directed towards the coaches 
who put up with us tliroughout the \'ear aiid were patient 
\vith us. Good luck next year to the graduating players Chris 
Colton, Alex Patrick, Arithony De Jesus, Shamir Bali and 
Nick Gauthier.

The Senior Men's Basketball team had a fun and successful 
year. We survived in a league of giants with superb three- 
point shooting by Greg Seppala, Chris McGuire, Greg 
Ross, and Eric JoKnson. With the best coach in Canada, it 
is hard to compete with any team. For the eight seniors, 
this was the most fun of all. Unfortunately our chemistry 
never clicked, but all in all we liked each other. Our fan 
support was a little lack luster (The few girls obviously 
came to see Jon flex his muscles), but those of you who did 
make it to our games, thank you. The beginning of the year 
was scary, playing a team with 3 Ontario players one of 
which was 7 feet tall. It ended all to soon but we gave it our 
all, and know we're better than Ridgemont. Good luck to 
next year's team. Good luck on the recruiting process. 
Look for Seps on the National in 5 years (Give it everything 
you've got). Dave, you'll figure out the inbounds plays 
sometime. Chris you should be a coach someday. Lee, "I m 
sorry coach". Aaron, don't let the hard boys hurt you. 
Nick, Army's better than Navy. Eric, you've at least gotta 
try out for the Carolina team. Jon, maybe can follow your 
brother's footsteps at Carleton. What's that? 1 for 32 at the 
beginning of the year, "shut up, I'm trying to shoot." (T- 
Bone) 46 turnovers against St. Pats, then only losing by 16.

Graduating players: Nick Kramer, Jon Petredis, Greg

The Ashbury hockey team out did e\'erybody's expectations this 
year with a 3-6 record. The squad lost a close 1" round plavoff series 
to Sir Robert Borden. The team also had an impressive second place 
finish at the UCC tournament (not bad for a team that never won a 
game in the tournament in any pre\ious \-ear). Thanks to Mr. Keyes 
and Jason for putting up with a team with so many stars. These stars 
included Rob "I'll play coach, my arm will grow back" Prior and 
Matt "I'm still smiling" Mendell, and of course, representing for the 
boarders, Jacob "I promise a goal" Fortier. Special thanks to Matt 
Lyman for coming to UCC and stopping the puck, and Showtime 
for the sports nutrition tips. The last thanks go out to the training 
staff, Andrew and Postman. Season highlights would include the 
game that Postman recei\-ed a brutal blow and was listed day to day 
on the injury report. Good luck to next year's team from the 
graduating players, Tait, Jacob, Jamie, and Justin.

Ashbury Rowing returned to the competitive 
arena this year with many wonderful successes. 
In the fall, men's and women's crews performed 
admirably at the Head of Rideau, the Head of 
the Trent, and the University Championships 
in Montreal. Winter training followed, with 
more medals at the Brockville Ergometer Cham- 
pionship in February. When the boats returned 
to the water in spring, the women's four won a 
gold medal at the Kingston regatta and com- 
peted successfully at the national rowing cham- 
pionship in St. Catharines, while the boys rowed 
successfully throughout. Congratulations to all

The Junior Boys Rugby Team had yet another successful 
season this vear, finishing the regular season with a record 
of 4-2. With emotional wins over Osgoode, St. Peter's, 
Lisgar and Gloucester, and heartbreaking losses against 
Hillcrest and Colonel By, the regular season was full of 
highs and lows. The Team managed to finish the regular 
season second in the East and moved on to the playoffs. In 
the quarter finals, the team handily defeated Lisgar for the 
second time in 10 days. The Team moved on to face 
Hillcrest in the Semifinals. Unfortunately the end result 
was the same as it was in the first meeting, and Hillcrest 
came out on top. Despite ending the season on a down 
note, the team should be commended for an impressive 
season as the majority of players had never played before. 
A special thanks to coaches Andreas Beltran, Chris De 
Jesus, and Alex Mintsioulis for all of their time and hard 
work as well as congratulations to Anthony De Jesus, 
Morgan Burn, Omar Alsaffar, and Mike Prior for their 
achievements. Good luck to all the players moving up to 
Senior, the returning plavers, and the new recruits. (Alex 
Jackson and Anthony De Jesus)

The senior MEN's rugby squad was underestimated until the 
results proved otherwise. With a diet of Wendy's and Energy 
To Go bars, we demonstrated our athletic prowess in mul- 
tiple distant tourneys this season. The season began prema- 
turely and existence was questionable due to an average of 14 
people per practice, 7 of whom had never played. At our first 
tourney in Port Hope, we embarrassed other schools and 
came away victorious. (Ten thu-thu thue Bananaw) The 
season had come and gone, and the wins had piled up, 
especially against LBP. At Eastern OFSSA, we represented 
our school well and qualified for OFSSA, where we all had a 
great time!

The junior boys \-olleyball team competed in the Tier 1 
competitive league this year, for the first time. The}' started 
the season at the Toimwi de volley-ball Franco-Cite, where 
they won some sets, and gained some match experience. 
The team then earned three victories in this league, and 
made it to the quarter-finals of the East Division. The 
roster, abl\- captained bv middle plaver Alex Young, in- 
cluded \-eteran setter Alex Boulos, veteran right side plaver 
Stuart "Stuff Block" Gray, \eterans Douglas "the Ham-

The junior girls volleyball team had an exciting and suc- 
cessful season in 2000. We finished in first place in our 
division, and placed very well in several strong tourna- 
ments. We had a tough final match in the East Conference 
Championships, and finished second. We would like to 
thank our captain. Lacy, for her tremendous leadership, 
and all the other talented players on the team. Best of luck 
to those who are moving up to senior next season and to 
those remaining. 

Thanks for a great season.

The Ashbury Senior Girls completed another suc- 
cessful season this past year, establishing them- 
selves as Eastern Conference Champions, and 
winning their third straight National Capital AA 

Our preseason started well in the fall, when a split 
squad of seniors bolstered by several junior age 
players finished second at the Merivale tourna- 
ment. The season began in earnest in January. Our 
league record stood at 7-3 when playoffs began. 
This included a somewhat startling 5-0 road record 
(15-0 in games), proving that the team could play 
anywhere without fear. Our playoff run started 
by defeating Lester B. Pearson (3-0), Cairine Wil- 
son (3-1), and division first seed Immaculata (3-1). 
The conference final pitted Ashbury against pe- 
rennial powerhouse Samuel Genest, who were in 
their third straight trip to the finals. Things started 
well as we grabbed an 8-4 lead in the first game. 
Disaster struck as All-Star and team MVP Chris- 
tina Burns tore a knee ligament, ending her sea- 
son. However, most improved player Alexa Young 
stepped into her spot to save the day with some 
crafty hitting and murderous blocking as we pre- 
vailed 3-1 to win the Eastern Conference. We came 
up short in the city finals, losing to Earl of March, 
a team with a heavy investment in club players. 
Several weeks earlier, the team had qualified for 
OFSAA for the third straight year, in a new tour- 
nament format. We entered as the region's second 
seed, but moved up in ranking by defeating 
Osgoode (2-0) in the semi-finals and Cairine Wil- 
son (2-0) in the final. At OFSAA we were once 
again competitive, but were without our two all- 
stars, Christina (injury) and Danielle (travel), and 
failed to get into the top bracket. All in all, another 
very successful season.

For the second straight year, our Ashbury base- 
ball team did not lose a game that we played 
during the six-game regular season. Going into 
the playoffs our goal was to win the champion- 
ship and avenge our loss in the finals last year. 
In the quarterfinals we came back to win a 
"thriller" in extra innings against Brookfield - 
keeping our season alive. A few days later we 
cruised to an easy 12-2 win over Immaculata in 
the semi-finals. We were then off to Jetform 
Park to play for the city championship. We 
started the game off on the wrong foot - down 
6-1 by the end of the 4th. After narrowing the 
game to 6-3 we headed into the final inning. 
After squandering back to back singles because 
of poor base running, we rallied to score 1 run 
before flying out to deep center field. Unfortu- 
nately it was too little too late. Despite the 
disappointing finish, we had a tremendous 
season. Our veterans Aaron, Eric, Rob, Chris, 
Joe and Will played well all season while our 
younger stars in Tim H., Alex, Pete and "Pea- 
nut" (with his fence climbing antics) gave us a 
glimpse of what to expect in the future. Great 
thanks is due to Coach Moore, Coach Coles and 
Coach Matty Baxter for leading us through yet 
another fantastic season. Best of luck in the 
future to Eric Johnson, Drew Robinson (#1!) 
and Aaron Barth, our graduating players.

The 2000 edition of the track team enjoyed much success 
during our season. Our returning coach, the valiant Mrs. 
Holman was joined by newcomers Ms. Martel and Mr. 
Marshall. Together, they provided us with inspiration, drive, 
determination and unparalleled support. The season started 
in early May, with the first round of qualifiers a few weeks 
later. Eventually, those who fought off the competition were 
off to eastern Ontario finals, and to the Ontario finals in 
London. While there were many spectacular individual per- 
formances, the team collectively established one (dubious) 
record: it took us two hours to set up our tent. Some days, we 
braved bone-chilling temperatures, violent winds (that blew 
our tent down) and scorching heat. The season was capped 
off with a lovely pool party and BB-Q. Overall, everyone had 
a highly enjoyable experience. Once again, thank you \'ery 
much to our amazing coaches. 

Congratulations to everyone; you all did a fantastic job. Good 
luck to graduating team members Justin Rocheleau, Rod 
Diaz, Dave Roulston and Matthew Lyman.

What better vear to graduate in than the vear 20001 This ga\"e us 
the determination to make our graduation one to remember! 
Vicky Wilgress was the dedicated faculty advisor who thought 
nothing of giving up time to help the grads. Student support was 
unfaiUng and overwhelming, a vital part of this committee. 
There were three principle events that spanned the year and 
kept the Grad Committee members well occupied. 
Our first e\'ent of the season was the unforgettable and original 
"Dress to Impress" (see page 40) Video Dance. While the "dress- 
ing to impressing" was lacking, there was an abundance of 
videos. Everybody got "Jiggy" with Will and "Mamboed" with 
Lou. We crowned an impressi\'e Royal Famly and enjoyed the 
company of Elmwood girls. One down, two to go. 
The Spring Semi-Formal jumped through two terms and thor- 
oughly confused everybody, but was a great success! Combined 
with International Day, students were able to really waltz the 
night away. 

We look forward to June 17th 2000 for the day and the evening 
that captures all the thrills and frills of an Ashburv Diploma and 
the unknown challenges and excitements that lie ahead for all of 
us in our future. We would like to thank all our fellow classmates 
who helped make this our millennium. Best of luck to next years 

We'll be back for reports . . .

This year Ashbury College formed a coalition with Elmwood to 
participate in the Canada FIRST Robotic Games. Approximately 
30 students from both schools eagerly undertook the challenge of 
building a hockey-playing robot. In addition the team docu- 
mented their progress in a video, a written binder, and a web page 
and created a short video documenting a significant Canadian 
achievement. The 8 weeks assigned to this project passed very 
quickly but when the time came everything was finished and we 
were all very proud of what had been done. 19 of these students 
left for Hamilton on the morning of March 2"''. When they arrived 
everyone was swept up in the incredible energy of the event. 
After a day of testing, practice and preparation the heats began. 
The first six heats were very successful earning us a playoff berth. 
When the dust finally settled at the end of the day the Ashbury/ 
Elmwood team placed a very respectable 3''^ especially for a first 
year team. The team would like to thank all their sponsors who 
made this possible: Nortel Networks, Ashbury College, Elmwood, 
Calian, Corel, Cognos, Shad Valley, The Fireplace Center and 
Patio Store, and Infinity Technology Services. We would also like 
to thank the National Research Council for providing us with 
access to a machine shop and Mr. Taylor for his assistance to the 
design team.

The Ashbury Investors Club had a very energetic 99-00 
season. It was a record breaking year all around. We 
experienced the greatest amount of members, portfolio 
size, and overall growth. It was also a first for the club to 
have their own website where members could have an up 
to the minute quote of how their money was doing. The 
basic philosophy of the club this year was to adopt a safer 
approach for steady, long-term gains. To achieve this we 
invested in Toronto Dominion Bank, on the TSE, and two 
mutual funds, Merrill Lynch Institutional Holdings Fund, 
and a Global Technology Fund. However, we found these 
stocks to have anything but slow movement. TDjumped 
by 10% to 20% in a one week period, while our Global Tech 
Fund skyrocketed to over 60% growth in just under five 
months. I would like to thank the contributors of this 
year's monumental Investors Club, or broker: Paula 
O'Brien, our staff advisor: Miss Martel, and student execu- 
tives: Marc Lafleche, Andrew MacDonald, Matt Mendell,

The band and choir this year performed two great con- 
certs, in the fall and in the spring. We performed a wide 
range of music, from Brahms to folk songs, to "Cats" and 
"Grease." Jazz band was as popular as ever and chamber 
choir had even more members than in previous years. As 
always, Mr. Tanod was a formidable director and man- 
aged to wade through the sea of rehearsals and classes. He 
even managed a quick and intense tour of Austria. The trip 
was amazing and we were able to visit places as well as 
enjoy the experience of Europe. The chance to attend as 
well as participate in some amazing concerts was a rare 
one of which we took full advantage. From simple tuning 
in concerts to "The Rite of Spring," the music department 
offers a unique and memorable way to explore music as art 
and more. Thanks also to Miss Carleton who organized us 
efficiently and patiently. Again, thank you Mr. Tanod. 
Your efforts are acknowledged every time we pick up our

When I think of the Ashbury Community Service Program 
this past year, two moments stand out for me beyond the 
positive interactions each week with students and student 
leaders. In September, I was privileged to attend the Stop 
Racism Fashion and Talent Show on Parliament Hill. The 
show was a fast-paced, multi-cultural event organized and 
put together by Ashbury's Ben Barry. Ben's enthusiasm, 
energy, direction, and countless hours ensured the success of 
the evening. Well done! Early in the first term, Ian Matyas 
expressed an interest in performing his community service 
with the neighbourhood police in his community. This re- 
quired meetings, information sessions, application forms, 
references, and training. Ian never became discouraged as he 
pursued his goal. lan's determination to make a difference 
took his contribution beyond the fulfillment of a require- 
ment. It is always a pleasure to hear the many positive 
comments about our students from the various agencies 
where students serve the community. These young people 
are exemplary role models for their peers. (Barbara Bradley)

Rehearsals began in October 1999 for Theatre Ashbury's 20"' anniversary production, "Joan of Lorraine" by Max\ 
Anderson, the classic story of Joan of Arc, with a twist. This play-within-a-play documented and paralleled the conflil 
between the life of Joan and the New York theatre troup producing a play about her. This year also saw the continuatif 
of what is quickly becoming a great Ashbury tradition: an exchange with the Holderlin-Gymnasium in Heidelbel 
Germany. The cast and crew of "Joan" were the second Theatre Ashbury cast to spend, two weeks in March performij 
overseas. The trip to Germany is certainly something we will never forget. Strong friendships were forged and the be 
for the exciting prospect of return visits was initiated. Having to assemble our set, redesign the lighting and re-block 
entire play in a day and a half was an incredible test of how strong we were as a cast. The two performances at the Holderl 
were both sold out and extremely well received. The third of our performances was at the Karlstor-Bahnhof, a professiojf 
theatre in a converted train station, was considered a favorite by some. The atmosphere of being in a professional tl 
was amazing, and e\'en though the show did not go quite as smoothly as we would ha\^e liked, we enjoyed the challer 
of having to solve the problems that arose on the fly. This year had the added bonus of touring through France to soJ 
of the more important sites in the history of Joan, especially her birthplace of Domremy . From making chainmail and bo^ 
to birthday wedgies to the Noodle Dance, impressions on the bus and, of course, the "Thong Song", 1999-2000 was a : 
year for Theatre Ashbury. We can be proud.

Getting outside and being active is a great way to find out 
about yourself and your fellow students. This year, a 
wonderful group of students hiked, oriented, learned first 
aid, exercised, paddled, portao;ed, camped and climbed. 
Some students cooked, argued, burned food, ignited stoves 
and vicinities, fended off racoons, tested the waterproof- 
ness of garbage bags, investigated the thermal properties 
of wet cotton shirts, savoured trail mix or limped along in 
fashionable shoes. 

We glimpsed wicked nocturnal eyes and heard the insis- 
tent trill of racoons that roam the Gatineau park in search 
of slopp\' campers. We learned that challenges can be 
relaxing and that relaxation is sometimes challenging. In a 
world of fast change and expensive luxury, we learned 
that a waterproof tarp, some rope and ski poles make a 
haven from tne rain. A thick handhold on the side of a cliff 
feels like a gift from God. 

Working together in a positive way gets the job done — and 
create smiles. Canned food is heavy food. Wool socks are 
warm. Small cliffs are prettv big. A school year is pretty 
Next vear will be even better.

International Day 2000 was bigger and better than ever 
before! This was the first year that Ashbury declared a 
theme for International Day: Human Rights. 
The morning began with a musical performance by 
1999 Lilith Fair singer, Laura Langstaff, which was 
followed by an opening address by Paula du Hamel. 
The keynote adciress was given by the Hon. Mme. 
Justice Louise Arbour. Following were presentations 
from the former director of Multiculturalism for the 
director of Canada, Erica Claus, and Stephanie Coward 
of Amnesty International. Students then went to their 
homerooms where they participated in stimulating dis- 
cussions on the theme of Human Rights, moderated by 
World Issues OAC students and World Affairs stu- 

The afternoon moved away from the classroom aca- 
demic approach to the cultural aspect of the day. Stu- 
dents organized 20 food booths from various countries. 
The International show followed and it was filled with 
dance music and a fashion show. Thanks to everyone 
who participated and made this event possible.

At long last, Toronto with its ne\'er ending queues at 
Immigration, and the final stage of our journey began. All 
along the Toronto-Ottawa road with its spectacular 
colourful countryside, tension was mounting. Eventually, 
Ashbury College was sighted, and student welcomed l5y 
their Canadian families. The adventure had begun. 

From that moment on, everything was a varied program of 
cultural activities and visits, giving us an overall impres- 
sion of Canadian history and life, arts and traditions. 

However, it was not all work and no play- Both weekends 
were spent with our host families, visiting other towns or 
participating in tvpical Canadian pastimes such as rafting, 
ice-hockey matches or x'isiting cottages. 

The host families played an extremely important role in 
making the exchange a success. The teachers involved 
were Mr. Stojanovic, Mrs. Edwards and Mrs. Rajani. Also, 
many other staff members gave up their time willingly. 

We take to Spain the warmth and hospitality of Canada 
and its people, and know that a very important and long- 
lasting friendship has started.

Hey preppies .... some of the best memories I have from 
the "willenium" are the many hours spent watching and 
analyzing "Save By The Bell" and "Golden Girls'^. We 
truly believe that this club helped bridge the gap between 
all ages present at our school, from grade nine to OAC. 
Every Wednesday at 1:05 ten to twenty loyal patrons 
showed up and made this club as "phat" as Bayside or 
Shady Palms. The unspoken rivalry betw^een the Bayside 
(SBTBC) and Valley (The Beatles Club) made the club a 
success. For this we thank Calvin. It's ironic that as we, the 
founders of the sacred and prestigious cult, graduate, so 
does the class of "Save By The Bell: The New Class". Some 
memories include the time Dimitry Yashin spoke of the 
Russian equivalent to "Saved By The Bell" called "Sputnik 
in Space." And who can forget watching the movie "Ha- 
waiian Vacation," or the " A&E Biography" on Estell Getty. 
Thanks Matt Salvotore, and Jacob Forti'er for helping me 
start this wonderful organization. I would also like to 
thank Mike Sallot for helping cope with illiteracy (My 
hidden shame). For all the members who missed the photo 
. . . too bad. These created memories that will last a lifetime.

first of its kind in the history of Ashbury and the only such 
organization in our nation's capital. Such a prestigious 
achievement didn't come without a little help from our 
friends. Thank you to Mr. Varley for taking us seriously 
(well, almost) and letting us continue. Mr. Penton, thank you 
for disregarding your concern towards the legitimacy of^the 
club, ancf for supervising. Most of all, thank you to our group 
of semi-interested students, whose apathy continues to as- 
tound us. To each of you; The Ballous - our backbone; Emily 
and Julie - thanks for the laughs; Julia - great logos, thanks; 
James - we'd have more to say if you'd said anything; Aaron 
- the Monkees can NOT be compared to the Beatles; Dan - 
"You say you want a revolution, well you know/ We all want 
to change your head"; Sam and Floris - no thanks for you; 
Drew - If we're the Beatles, you're the Rolling Stones, always 
ripping-off our ideas. Thanks; Ricky - visit soon, buddy! Best 
of luck to graduating member Ian Howard . . . 
"And in the end, the love you take/ 
Is equal to the love you make"

"Lennon and McCartney ... no wait! It's Calvin and Ian!" 

,s was the case last year, another brilliant session of L' ALTERNATIVE 
OFFEE HOUSE has yet again impressed the Ashbury public and 
:ored a truly major success! It has been a wonderful evening for an 
vent that celebrated its 10"" edition. Indeed, the adventure originated 
3 years ago! Among the performers were Ian Matyas and Aidan 
hompson, Masaki . . . , Ewan and the rest of the band, Matthew 
alvatore and Patrick Glinsky, Amanda Bon and Michelle Taggart, 
ndrew . . . Paul Benney, Sandy Johnston, Adam Azzabi and Soraya 
zzabi, both performing original and classical scores on piano. Pia 
lastromonaco and Chad . . . performing their mostly original and 
naginative material. Also, an impressive hip hop band under the 
irection of Dylan Argument managed to perform before an hypno- 
sed audience. Christina Brentzel also performed a long and fascinat- 
ig original for which she received a standing ovation as Adam 
zzabi did the year before. At the end, words of thanks and gratitude 
"lould go to M. Marc- Andre Pelletier, who has been the producer of 
ALTERNATIVE COFFEE HOUSE for ten years as well as this year 
dition of L'ALTERNATIVE 2000, and also to Andrew Magnus, 
shbury College School Captain and this year's Director of coffee 
ouse, competently seconded by Shan Pandher as Assistant Director 
nd Aidan Thompson Technical Director, and the whole coffee house 
rganizing committee. Finally, people from the cafe, servers under 
le direction of Jenn Bitner and Kalessy Laserre, and security crew 
ad by Shan Pandher as well as the school authorities and all the 
Limerous others who have spared their time to the establishment and 
ssurance of this year's triumph. As M. Pelletier stated since year one, 
ALTERNATIVE has always been a stage offered to students for 
lem to express themselves through what they like, through what 
"ley love: poetry and music. Thank you to all for making it happening 
)r ten years and years to come.

would be graduating in Canada, 
but I am... I wonder what's next? I 
guess over these years I'xe learned 
an Incredible amount of new things 
in this countr)', which have been 
quite... interesting. It's been pretty 
good, and I have many good 
memories. I thank God for giving 
me the opportunity to go to such a 
wealthy school. I also want to thank 
everyone who's helped me during 
this time. Special thanks to: cat,

mv turn to bid Ashbury farewell. 
Afthougli my time here has come 
to a quick end 1 know the memories 
will last forever: Gr 9- surviving 
Tamara, wonderbars, the UG; Gr 
10- pigman, Kenji; Gr 11- health 
class: long dump, discum;beowulf 
on ice; Gr 12- lunch club, hey Napes; 
AVE not B A VE; Gr 13 was amazmg: 
spares, spares and 2 more spares, 
countdown in History, the hot 
chocolate machine; Heaven on 
earth, saunas w/ ML, a crush that 
materialized, hey CB who's the 
Devil? eyeliner issues, GR AD TRIP 
was the best time ever: animacion, 
separacion, excellente!, PUNTa 
Cana, Ravintolat! To all my friends 
who have come & gone: 1 luv y'all: 
AD, ML, NC, RW, AM, DP, JB, RD, 
A V, J Y. Thanks to all of my teachers 
especially RP MAV PC & LL. To 
my family, particularly my parents, 
thank you for all of your love & 
support. Good luck & best wishes 
to GRADS of 2000 & remember 
"Celebrate we will because life is 
short but sweet for certain...." 

Things 1 will never forget: 4th 
Quarters - Or coach Grisco's 
yelling. DOUG!!!!! Dining Hall 
Food - if you can call it that - how 
do the boarders survive? Seeing 
raw eggs being eaten, and 
somebody in a speedo for 
announcements. The culture shock 
on the first day : uniforms, everyone 
holding doors, virtually no 
swearing. It sure wasn't like public 
school. What an experience to go to 
Ashbury, even if it was just for one 
year. There are too many people to 
thank individually so 1 won't even 
try. What I want to do instead is 
remind the entire class of 2000 of 
what an amazing school they've 
had, for however long they've been 
here. Very few schools have a 
student body made up of so many 
intelligent, well-spoken, cosmo- 
politan, and athletic people. It's too 
bad thatsomepeopledidn'trealize 
this. Finally thanks go out to all the 
sta ff and teachers for actually caring 
and to my parents for paying for 
this little endeavor and putting up 
with me these past 18 years.

This was my 9* year at Ashbury. 
TTiis is the same sentence as 25 year 
Ufe imprisonment for a 25 \'ear old in 
a minimum securit)' prison, witli 
weekend leave, and summer breaks 
(with no hope of parole). For the 
same cost i could have gotten a 
Porsche. I'm not bitter though, I 
ha\'en't had time to get my G-Z vet. 
Onlv 8 more vears to go. I'can't Be a 
Paleontologist until I get my PhD. I'U 
then be 26 years old. Raving spent 23 
years in educational institutions, and 
I will be way in debt. I suppose the 
olderIget,thefastertimegoesby. (It 
actuaUy goes bv at the same rate', but 
a given aay e'ncompasses a lesser 
proportion of my life.) The first two 
\ears of lunior School were pretty 
sheltered, then I was thrown into the 
cannibalistic anarchy of grade 7. The 
images of small children prodding 
their fallen comrades' bodies witn 
sticks \st11 linger with me. Since then 
I ha\e been gudt}' b v association more 
times thanl can c'ount. I was then 
duped into thinking I had reached 
sal\'ation in senior school, but it has 
always been the same after the first 
monfh. However I have adapted. 
Finally, it has taken me this long rime 
to reg'ain the hope that I left at the 
Dark Gates. It can only get better 
from here on in. Ich bin 3iq.

After staying in boarding for four 
years, I have become less healthy 
(dining hall food) despite all the 
early morning runs, and waking 
up earlier and eating a full 
breakfast. Special thanks to the 
teachers who took care of me. I will 
never forget cooking at midnight, 
going for a walk on the roof and 
gambling atnight. Also 1 will never 
forget the Casino de Hull. All the 
time, I spent over there and how 
much I lost... I'd like to thank Joel 
Boulvais (correcting my grammar 
mistake, including this writing), Ian 
Howard ("whisky shower"), Han 
Park and Sae Park (Playing Starcraft

I first want to thank my loving

without whom none of everything 
would have happened. UliatcanI 
say, in grade 6 I entered, emotional 
landscapes, and finally in grade 13 
I exi(s)t, ready. Good times, bad

CB, IH, JG, NC, ]B, the Brits. For 
those not mentioned do not worry, 
I merely do not yet realize the 
impact that you have had on my 
life. Mona, the time with you was 
filled with love and passion and 
shall always remain close to my 
heart. Four good years in home- 
room with Ms. Lewicki. Sra. Rajani, 
Doc and M. Stojanovic you made 
THE lasting impact (true care and 
devotion). What a wonderful life 
I've had -I only wish I'd realized it 
sooner. Que la paz sea con ustedes 
... siempre. 

These last 3 years at Ashbury have 
been... unique,

This is my first and last year at- 
Ashbury. Many things happened, 
and they all are precious 
experiences. Many people I'd like 
to thank, but many of them are not 
here anymore. ..For those who have 
remained here, I would like to 
express my my greatest gratitude 
for what I ve been taught: LL, EH, 
DH, my history teacher Mrs. 
Duschinsky and MV. My parents 
who supported me a.t.w. without 
regret altnough at some times I'm 
rebellious. My sister Cindy has been 
very supportive as well, and she is 
both my b. friend and b. sister. Now 
the hallways are empt_y, the stairs 
are awfully long. The front door is 
not a place to wait anymore. The 
windows are closed, and the snowis 
gone. The fields are meaningless if 
that laughter is not there. If we are 
parted, I'm not parted from you. 
What I'vge walked through is not 
vanity but truth. If goodbye is said, 
and wishes are made, I shall see 
you again, and this is ...the 
beginning, not the end. I will 
remember you, will you remember

Dear Diary, 

The clock reads 2 a.m. Grad write- 
ups are due tomorrow. If only there 
was time I would like to write 
something original and masterful. 
Something that, if I join the 
mindless masses within a decade, 
will show that at a point in my life 
there was potential. What I would 
like to say is simple. I wish to give 
an honest thank you to my parents 
and teachers for helping me to be 
who I am. I also desire to pay tribute 
to a few classmates: namely 
Richard, a man who will take the 
system far; Nick, a fellow dreamer; 
and Aaron, one who will never lose 
his path. Finally, I would feign 
capture memories of the good times 
that I have passed with: JB, JG, BQ, 
SP2, PC, CZ, and JI. The problem is 
I still have to design a robot tonight 
and be up in time for rowing at 6. 
So, even if I don't finish my write- 
up, I hope that everyone realises 
that 1 do remember, and that I wish 
them the best of life.

Gather round, chUdren, let me tell 
you a story- no I don't care if you 
don't wanf to hear. Two years ago 
this nerdy kid from BC with gooTy 
hair comes to this preppy school in 
Ottawa with all the rich kids. He's a 

worried, and his first year is pretty 
tough- lots of work and not mucn 
fun. Despite this inauspicious start 
he actually survives two years and 
even has some fun along the way. So 
thanks to all those who proved to me 
that you aren't all a bunch of snotty 
rich kids. And even some of you who 
are snotty rich kids are alrignt. 
1 must give especial recognition to 
my late-night noodlefest Doarding 
buds- Ian and Aaron and Joel and my 
roomie Steve who put up with me. 
Also the girls- Rieke, Wendy, Katrina, 
Kim. I also thank Nick L and K and 
the lazy mob outside the computer 
lab for helpingwith my endless 
procrastinationrThanks to everyone 
else who made my life a little better 
than expected and "helped build some 
good memories. I must also give 
special recognihon to my teachers for 
believing in me. especially Dr. Ehly. 
And above all thanks to my parents 
for sacrificing so I could come here. 
So lone Ashbury- what didn't kill me 
will only make me stronger.

Grade 9 & 10 & 11: blurry; Grade 
12: fun; Grade 13: pure madness. 
These last two years have been 
amazingly fun (and expensive. Oh 
well, it's my aunts' problem 
anyway.) Rieke: I've got too much 
2 say 2 u. Kat: someday we'll set 42 
swearing penguins on fire. Jasmine: 
someday I'll blackmail vou. The 
Koreans: Thanx for being nice to 
me. SoungMok (and SangMok): 
Thanx for teaching me how to play 
pool . LoMing: I forgot my medicine 
again. Paul: pineapples in a cold 
basement. Joel: Chinese soap opera 
beats European ones. Holeer: poke. 
SK: thanx for the starbucKs coffee. 
Kim: my fave kitty, have fun next 
year. Christian: some day ill beat 
ff8 myself. Aly: Jellicle halluci- 
nogens? Hiroshi: sayonnara 
bakachan! My3: no PLME for us 
huh? Aaron: I can kinda bowl now! 
Thank you all for tolerating or 
pretending to tolerate me and 
Keeping me more or less insane. 
Finally, to the trees: I'll miss you. 
And to Dining hall: So long, and 
thanks for all the fish.

for something that outlasts life." 
-William James 

Thank you to all my teachers at 
Ashbury who throughout the past 
three years of my life have done so 
much for me. To my friends, I give 
special thanks because you have 
helped me in so many different 
ways during my time here. And 
finally I thank my family who have 
encouraged and supported me 
throughout my life even though at 
times I have been difficult. You 
have all helped me to become who 
I am, and ha ve therefore helped me 
in my desire to achieve something 
which will outlast my life, and for 
that I am very grateful. To my 
teachers, friends and family may 
good luck and good times be in 
your future.

It all began witli the family. I must 
say 'tlnank \ou' to my parents for 
gi\'ing me e\-erv' opportunity', and 
ne\'er holding anvlhing back, and 
thanks to Tanya, the greatest sister I 
could e\'er imagine, for the inspira-

Mr. Parsons. 

Now for the most important part of 
my years at Ashbur\-: From the very 
beginning and in the end, there is 
David French, mv oldest friend, and 
the one I've grown up with. In Grade 
6, 1 met Tait, and Matt, and manv 
others who would become old 
friends. In Grade 7 came Aidan 
Thompson, the third member and 
there is too much to sav except... 
nothingbut good times. The next six 
years has been a mixture of sports, 
school, and summer. Three years of 
Football, and five years of Rugby, 
and the Lunch Table with all or the 

food times on the picnic tables with 
ait. Drew, Jer S, Brian, Jacob, Dan S, 
and .■\dam. This vear came Prefects, 
responsibilities, Grad Trip, and so 
manv other incredible surprises. 
Thank you all for the great memories, 
it's onl'v going up from here.

These last couple of years havebeen 
a hectic time in my life. A lot of 
things ha\e changed, and a lot of 
things have remained the same. It's 
all a matter of perspective. I think 
that in many wavsl have changed 
to meet the new situations and 
obsta-cles that have come before 
me. Sometimes these changes have 
been for the better, and sometimes 
not. Instead of thanking people 
individ-ually, I'd just like to say 
thanks to the family, the crew and 
eversone else who'has helped me 
out along the way. You know who 
you are. 1 also want to thank the 
people of Geneva, Switzerland. The 
best four years of mv life were spent 
with you. The Le'shards, Al and 
Ruf, the rest of the crew. Sarah, 
we've had some unfor-gettable 
Hmes, and some times that we wish 
we jould forget. Finally, I would 
like to thank AOT and OPS, for 
giving me an opportunity to express 
myself in new ways, ways tnat I 
ha'd never imagined possible for 
me. And for the future genera-tions 
reading this, remember that having 
fun has its price, but some things in 
this world are priceless. It's the 
priceless things that we remember, 
and these are the things that make 
or break the man.

Thanks again Ashbury for

To think that I've been at Ashbury 
since grade 7, time has just gone by. 1 
can still remember when I nrst giit on 
the yellow school bus. Jr. school was 
new in the first year, new faces, new 
setting. Grade o was just getting into 
the "routine". Grade 9, 1 (land n was 
ciuick. Grade 12 was the beginning of 
IB. Grade 13 was the beginning of^he 
end. 1 never really thought about the 
future at all. I'd like to thank all the 
teachers that have helped me. You've 
aU been a guiding light in my journey. 
I'd also like to thank all the friends 
that have supported me. PC, I couldn't 
have finishecl many labs withou t your 
help. NL, always there to help. WK. 
thanks for always being there and 
you're the geiiius. DP, you and your 
bad advice, (you know what I'm 
talking about). BQ, grad trip. . . Thanks 
to anyone that I have forgotten, high 
school can be stressful but you guys 
are one reason to get up and go to 
school everyday. Finally I'd lu<e to 
thank my parents for sending me to 
such a prestigious school ancf giving 
me the opportunity to explore my 
abilities. 1 can never thank you 
enough. My years at Ashbury have 
been the best. I'd like to wish all the 
grads the best_and hope you all will 
nave a_fuLfilltng life. I'd also like to 
wish my best to the next year's grad

To everyone whom I know: 

Distance between a tree and a tree 
Distance between an island and an island 
Distance between a person and a person 

Everywhere there are distances 

Distance between a fox and a fox 
Distance between a star and a star 
Distance between a heart and heart 

I wanted to go to somewhere no distan- 

No distance between water and a fish 
No distance between sea and a wave 
No distance between a bird and wings 

I will remember you guys, 
who did not have distances.

Well, there goes 7 vea's of my life 
into the Asnburv' Experience. It

Contour down the parkway on a 
Frida\' spring afternoon. Shout out

deadly as are (self) employers, Yash, 
I'm surprised I made' it riding 
sidekick in the Jeep, thanks for the 
Roskizic lessons. Curling, what tlie

Big N4AC, we missed you- RJC, an 
experience to say the least; NJ, opened 
my eyes; and Benoit, for teacliing me 
that 1 never want to know french. 
Commonwealth, the highlight of 
highschool, Emma, for bemg a part 
of^ so much. My parents for 
everv'thing, you are appreciated. 
AND to Henr\- Ford, for making such 
a great car co'mpany! Shout out's to 
e\'eryone else who was there for the 
Casino, 77, ln\' club, RaOy Racing.

I must have missed something; 
yesterday is a blur of wasted time, 
and tomorrow is approaching 
much too fast. I won't say thanks 
before I'm swept back into 
anonymity, I'll just say goodbye. 

This is the way the world ends not 
with a bang but a whimper. 
-T.S. Eliot 

After 8 long i/ears its finally time 2 
write this I nave so many memories, 
some bad, but vital in order 2 
appreciate the good. I've been 
planning this 4 years but now when 
It comes time 2 write, I'm, at a blank 
How can I give justice 2 those that 1 
paper? Jon vour my oldest friend 
and there is iio 1 1 would rather have 
hold that title What Im 1 going 2 do 
without you in Univ Dr Bev Crusher 
- ups and downs / from your 
mistakes I've learned / never' stop 
laughing. AZ, SP - sorry u euvs were 
notin mvl ''cartoon Goodmck! Scott 
C - just Dtw u and me, u pretend not 
to care but I know u cio. Ronnie and 
Michelle u 2 made this year full of 
laughs - thanx. Sheila - its never too 
late 2 intwerview him RS, KW - 
you're the best Lydia - my jacket is 
always buttoned up MS many rides 
thanx Mrs. Jowett your teaching gave 
me the option of looking through a 
new door in life, it scares me when I 
think what it would be like leaving 
without your teachings Ameer U r 
an awesome bro (I'm always here 4 
u) Mrs Varlev thank u 4 caring and 
encouraging Of course my parents - 
4 only wanting me 2 have the best 1

I'm sitting here in the Backpackers 
Inn and enjoy my weekend-off from 
boarding life. 3 years of boarding 
needs a break once in a while, 
although it was a lot of fun. 1 don't 
want to 

miss the memories I have! Wendy 
who is THE roommate for me, Ka trin'a 
who is my dear crazy Penguin- 
FanaHc, Rdsartna who takes care of 
everybody else, James who is pretty 
enough, when dressed up as a girl^ to 
make girls jealous but other wise is a 
very handsome guy and a lot of fun to 
be with, Joel whom I went upstairs 
with and had sex on the beach, Holger 
who probably still remembers what i 
said about my 20"' birthday in Eatons, 
Paul who provided an Interesting 
Soap-Opera for Joel and I, Aaron who 
took me to a ball and kept Katrina 
and I busy in A&G with the paper 
thingy, Ian who loved James' Rubber- 
Ducky, and Tina the little sheep. 
Everyone turned Ashburv intoa great 
time with lots and lots of crazy stuff. 
That weekend in Montreal was 
awesome, Tina, and brought happy 
months and new friendships with it 
(right?), some more close than others 
and some very close. I love you all 
(those included in ALL will ce'rtainly 
know!) ! 1 want to thank you for a 
splendid time. I will never forget you!

When I arrived at Ashbury five 
loooooooooooooong years ago, 
who would have thought that I'd 
actually survive to graduate? Not 
me, that's for sure, but here I am 
anyways. The intervening years 
haven't always been fun, but 
they've been unforgettable. Some 
things 1 can't wait to forget; others, 
I hope stay with me forever. Now, 
traditional incomprehensible 
messages: to the boss, GHS, thanks 
for letting me be a part of something 
so fun and rewarding. To all the 
Theatre-rats, thanks for the 
memories, most of which will 
require elctroshock to forget. To 
AP, never stop being yourself, but 
if you have to become someone 
new, be someone with an ounce of 
decency :>) To the original squirrel 
on crack, thanks for being there 
even if you couldn't be more. To 
much too many mention, thank you 
for giving me a chance to be myself, 
and for putting up with said self. 
Here's to the memories!

Jay, our Josten's 
Rep: Aly and Jon; 
Matt accepting the 
Yearbook 2000 

The 1999-2000 scholastic year 
marked the last for our Headmaster, 
Mr. Roy Napier. It is the pleasure of 
the staff of The Ashburian to for- 
mally dedicate this yearbook in 
honour of our departing headmas- 

Mr. Napier came to Ashbury in 1986. 
Originally from northern Ireland, he 
moved to Canada in 1964, soon after 
he married wife Dorothy. He worked 
his way through many schools, work- 
ing at Bishop's College School, New 
Richmond High School and other 
schools in the province of Quebec. 
While there, he gained an enviable 
command of French. A successful 6 
year tenure at Riddley, starting in 
1975, led to the position of Head- 
master at Albert College in Belleville. 
When Mr. Napier arri\'ed at Ashbury, 
he immediately opened the Senior 
School to girls, hired more female 
staff, and appointed the first female 
Chairman of the board of directors. 
He invested more of the schools re- 
sources in sports, which enabled 
Ashbury to become a powerful force 
in game play. He promptly took 
measures to pay off the remaining 
portion of the new gym, but his am- 
bition did not stop there. In 1993, he 
announced the eo-ahead for Ashburv 
Campaign 2000, which was to raise 
funds for a major expansion of facili- 
ties. This led to the construction of 
the new Junior School, new library 
and a new theatre complex. More 
recently, a new residence facility was 

While his departure will affect many 
facets of school life, it will be espe- 
cially difficult for the yearbook com- 
mittee. Over the years, Mr. Napier 
has graciously given us continual 
and unconditional support. With a 
relatively low student population, 
the production of the yearbook is 
quite costly. Mr. Napier has always 
been willing to provide financial sac- 
rifices so that each and every student 
and member of staff is represented 
in a high quality yearbook. A heart- 
felt thank you to Mr. Napier. 

A vital part of Ashbury College spirit is represented in our yearbook. Ih 
Ashburian. Every year. The Ashburian strives to capture the essence of 111 
Ashbury. Whether you're an alumnus or current student, looking through 
Ashburian should bring back a flood of fond memories; each page is designt 
move you back in time and convey a sense of nostalgia. | 

This year marks the first year w^here the concept of team leaders has t 
implemented. These important individuals provide leadership to a large gr 
of ambitious students who, at times, need guidance. They were: Kim Wong 
Lakani, Titus van den Heuvel, Jonathan So & Mike Sallot. Without these 1 
working and dedicated individuals, the production of the yearbook would 1" 
been virtuallv impossible. 

Beyond these highly-skilled indi\iduals, the other, less-heralded members o 
yearbook committee are an essential part of the huge coordination require 
create a yearbook. They benefit from working in many diverse areas of 
yearbook: photography, layout, theme design and computer layout des 
Their selfless support, talent and commitment enable the production proce^ 
move infiniteh' more efficiently. 

The most praise, however, should be directed towards Mrs. Ford, our . 
leader. Her continual dedication and hard work should be commended, i 
brought experience that always helped us get through whatever obstacles 
came across. A sincere thank vou on behalf of the entire yearbook committ 
On a personal note, I would like to thank the grad class for submitting their ^ 
write-ups in record time; this was a great improvement over previous yt 
Furthermore, I would like to thank all the teachers and coaches who were 1 
enough to respect our deadlines and submit their write-ups, sometimes \\i-- 
very little notice. Overall, I believe everyone involved with the production ojhi 
yearbook had an enjoyable and memorable experience. I wish the commiet-: 
next year good luck and all the best, and may you ha\'e no \'ertical eye-lin(

The staff is always involved with the students at Ashbury, but they 
also have their own private lives. Mr. Montgomery for example is 
obviously very happy here, as he should be, since his wedding is 
planned for the summer. We wish the Director and his bride-to-be all 
the happines in the world! Mr. Humphreys, Mrs. Arbuckle, Mrs. 
Boyd and Mrs. Booth, above, while pretending to keep track of scores 
on Soccer Day, are actually planning out their itinerary for the 
summer! Mr. Street (above right) is practicing his other job - a crossing 
guard. Mr. Storosko, while relaxing at Camp Cameron, is, in fact, the 
chief Druid of the Ukranian Leprechaun Society.

Soccer at Bishop's 

The L" 13 and 14 teams set off for Bishop's 
tournament the second weekend of school. It 
was another fine performance for both. The U 
14 settled for the silver losing a close fmal 
match to LCC. The L' 13 won the consolation 
round defeating Stanstead 5-1. Many thanks 
to Messers \'alentine, King, and Street.

U 11 and U 12 Soccer 

Much of the success of the Junior 
School soccer programme is due to the 
excellent "farm system" at the grades 4, 
5, and 6 level. The U 11 and U 12 teams 
played LCC in September, splitting 
four games. Thanks to Ms Boyd and 
Mr. Street, the teams also played The 
Priory and LCC in Montreal in October. 
The chance to travel and to represent 
the school is a great advantage for 
these young soccer players. The high 
level of skill bodes well for next year's 
U 13 tournament team. Clockwise

House Soccer 

It has become one of the pleasant fall 
traditions at the school: the Annual House 
Soccer Competition. Once again we had a 
beautiful, warm, sunny day for the 
afternoon's activities. Everyone was involved 
either as participant, referee or score-keeper. 
This year the Wizards emerged as the overall 
victors. Individually, the Senior Hobbit A 
Team was the class of its division, but the 
Wizards won the 7-8 section with solid efforts 
at all levels. In the 4-5-6 competition it was the 
Dragons who led the way. Clockwise from

The Junior School contin- 
ued its tradition of helping 
the United Way. It was a 
bright and warm day, and 
the students raisecl over 
$4000 in pledges this year. 
Once again Mr. Hum- 
phreys' class led the way 
with $781. The House com- 

getition was won by the 
'ragons who collected in 
excess of $1240. The Wiz- 
ards proved to be the fleetest 
afoot. The junior School 
boys are grateful that they 
are able to make such a good 
contribution to our commu-

thanks for her hard work.

Wrapping It Up 

[T .4 






December is always a busy time at the 
College. We began with a most success- 
ful Mitten Tree project The students were 
most generous with their contributions 
collecting huge quantities of warm 
winter clothing, and enough cash to 

gurchase 36 snow suits for the Fund, 
•ther activities included the Junior Choir 
travelling to various locations. The choir 
(at left) also performed in the Christmas 
Concert. The Grades 5, 7, and 8 music 
classes played from Jazz to folk. Eric 
Lenouvel played one of his own pieces 
on the piano. Another highlight of the 
season was the Grade 8 Drama Class 
with their annual theatre presentation to 
close the term.

The Under 13 team had a successful season. It began before Christmas with two 
wins and two losses at the Selwyn House tournament. Later, in the new year, we 
finished sixth overall (out of sixteen) at the C.A.I.S. tournament in Richmond 
Hill. We defeated three strong sides, and lost only to U.C.C. and to the eventual 
champions. Crescent. Our strong efforts and fair play were rewarded when the 
team won the Sportsn\anship Award. The Under 14 had, as well, a fine season. 
We made the playoffs for the first time in the local CRCIAA league. We were the 
winners of the Private Schools Tournament hosted by Turnbull and came second 
in our own tournament losing only to St. Andrew's. Mr. Street would like to 
thank the players on all teams for their strong efforts, and also the volunteers 
who helped with score-keeping. j^g

It's About Rhyme 

Reflections on a Century 
Written by: Matthew Grey 

A century of change has just passed lis by, 

A hundred years of memories that shall never ever die. 

On the battlefiehi this century was to start, 

After an Austrian Prince took a bullet to the heart. 

The war to end all wars this conflict was called. 

Yet it would take many years before it finally was resolved. 

Next there were the inventors, those who dared to dream, 

Wlio look at a problem and find an answer despite how impossible it may seem. 

Take for example the Wright Brothers who one day looked to the sky. 

And asked the great question "But why can't man fly". 

After endless days of working, enduring the physical and mental pain, 

The two finally created the world's first airplane. 

Fighting again, another war broke loose, 
Though both sides tried they could find no truce. 

The battles continued year upon year, 

As the lives of Europeans were filled luithfear. 

Then that one fateful day in 1945, 

America unleashed the A-bomb costing millions more their lives. 

This signalled the end to a fearsome and bloody war. 

Once again the bird of peace over the earth did soar. 

Next came the sixties filled with trends and change. 

With people making peace signs and acting very strange. 

A dream of peace and equality echoed through the land. 

As a leader spoke up and said it loas time to make a stand. 

Then through a march a jnillion men strong, 

The people used their voice that had been silenced for so long. 

Imagine being able to travel back in time. 

Whether it be to right a wrong or stop a crime. 

Would you go to Dallas in November 1963, 

And stop the assassin in the book depository. 

Or 'would you go to Memphis on a 1968 night. 

And tell Martin not to walk outside in the day's last light. 

Next came the space race as all of man reached for the stars. 

And actually dreamed of travelling to Jupiter and Mars. 

Yuri and John were first but others followed soon. 

As people set their sights to actually landing on the moon. 

The way to the moon Apollo 11 did find. 

As it made "One small step for man, and one giant leap for mankind". 

From then to now technology has been the key. 

Great successes have been made from the cell phone to the CD. 

Then there are computers and the boundless realm of the internet, 

Connecting people of all nations who have never even met. 

The future's unpredictable as we've learned from our past. 

No one is sure where it'll lead us, ifzve'll end up first or last. 

We must look ahead, not back, at the days gone by. 

For -we never will know how far we can go if we never even try. 

April is the cruelest month, but not this year. The Junior School Annual Poetry Reading 
Competition ser\ed to chase away the blues. Gordon Nelson's (top left) recitation of his 
grandfather's poem brought down the house and put him in first place. Peter Bolink and 
Romith Naug (middle left) tied for second. Stephen Street and Matthew Grey (bottom left) 
tied for third. Thanks to Mrs. Frommer and Ms. Lahey who had the unenviable job of judging 
this impressive event. Above is Matthew Grey's original poem which he read.

Staged Events 

Ashbury students have a lot of talent, and this year they got 
to showcase it in a variety of ways. (Clockwise from top left): 
Grade six gets ready to perform The Hobbit. Grade seven 
students learn the art or Greek theatre. The whole school 
turned out to watch the Erewhon Theatre and their peers in 
Oliver Twist. Puppers galore (Grade six). Stephen Miller stars 
as Oliver.

Looking to the Past 

At the end of May the grade 
8s visited both Upper 
Canada Village and Fort 
Wellington as part of their 
history program. We see, 
from top left, Greg haying, 
Barrett and Ben with inter- 
preters, the group taking 
careful notes (naturally, Mr. 
King was along!), Daniel, 
Anthony, Max, Jason (who 
would take notes if he had 
arms), and Matthew learn- 
ing about the life of soldiers, 
and Nicolas, Derek, and 
Daniel in a tight spot. 


Way into the Past! 

The Greek Day festivities included Olympic 
events. Left, Lucas throws the discus, and 
above, Peter attempts the standing long jump 
complete with hand weights. 

rheatre was also part of the afternoon. Each class presented before an enthusiastic audience of parents and peers. Above

Blue is the color of sadness. 

The breaking of ice. 

The coldness of a ri\'er. 


The blue of the sky, 

The freshness in the air. 

Ink on the paper, 

A starr\- night. 

The color of water. 

On frozen ice. 

A bluebird in a storm. 

On a windowsill. 

Blue is the crunch of snow. 

The rustle of leaves. 

In the sea are the fish. 

With the coral reefs.

Lacing up my skates 
Thinking of the greats 
Skating on the ice 
Feeling really nice 
Playing with my friends 
Pretending to be the Sens 
Shooting really fast

Shouting at the referee

Hockey is really great 
Too bad it's not my fate 
Unlacing my skates 
Still thinking of the greats!

Big John 

Big John came on the ice that day. 

He didn't have a lot to say. 

He skated poised and very cool. 

He knew full well there'd be a duel. 

The game was set, an even match. 

Them red, us blue, we knew we'd catch 

A few good pucks and hope to win 

If John took all, it'd be a sin. 

He stepped with care to meet his foe 

Was Big John fast? The crowd would 


They saw him when the puck did drop. 

He skated hard but couldn't stop. 

I saw John charge, it seemed he soared 

The crash was loud, he broke the 


But John unscathed, came back to score 

We tied the game, the crowd roared 


The puck flew up the center line. 

With icing called, it was a sign 

We must fight hard, the game was tight 

We scored a goal, the coach was right. 

Now Big John's eyes grew red as heat 

His gloves he dropped right at his feet. 

The crowd was roaring, loved the fight 

The players fought into the night. 

A whistle soon did pierce the air 

The ref said "Men, if you do care 

To skate, not fight, let's start the time 

But John, you're benched, from six to 



When John returned, his slapshot flew 

He'd set it up three men on two. 

Our goalie raised his stick just right 

But John did score with all his might. 

Then suddenly our team grew bold 
Our spirits mounted in the cold 

Reality. The clock moved on. 
With courage, we defeated John. 

There's strength in numbers, so they 


We proved it on that fateful day. 

But I learned something I'll pass on. 

Respect a man who's called "Big John".

The Dream 

I am at the top of the hill 

I look around 

Snow spills gently on the ground 

The distant hum of the chairlift 

Is the only sound 

that reaches my ears 

Adrenaline is rushing 

Snow is falling 

Faster and faster 

I zoom down the hill 

I weave left and right 

Like a train in the Rockies 

I am excited. The snow falls 

Faster and Faster 

Suddenly, I am in the air 

Blood pumps in my ears 

It seems that I have just taken off 

White, glinting snow falling 

Covers everything in a rich 

white blanket of snow 

But the hum of the chairlift 

Brings me back to my senses 

I looK at the sky and 

the sun turns tne flakes to gold 

I wake up, my heart beating heavily 

I turn over, and fall asleep again

Aging Memories 

Don't rewrite the past 
The perfect memories were meant to last 
But age, in its cruelty steals thoughts 
That would be memories 

The present staggers before us 

Repetitions of the past 

Shadows without substance that pretend 

To be reality 

While belonging to neither 

Neurons decay and die 

Taking with them recollections 

Of youth 

Of events that would have been told and retold 

Now being nothing more than shadows of the past 

Without substance

Red Light, Green Light 

A walking man waits at a light stop 

As cars race by him 

At incredible speeds 

Everything is blurry 

Everything is restless 

The noise is incessant 

The man is insignificant 

A little bug in the way 

Of oncoming traffic 

Suddenly a simple light changes 

Everything stops 

All is quiet 

The man walks across the road 

By the obedient cars 

The man no longer feels small 

He feels like the king of the world

Oh, once in a way, all the sailor folk say, 
'Twas a good vessel strong, proud, and true 
But there 's no other ship, that sank faster than it. 
At the wreck of the good vessel. Shoe. 

Well, a class from the Bay of St. Lawrence one 


Went west, on a trip to a town. 

But nobody there laiew that that night the boat 


Would sink into the icy depths down. 

In Quebec on the third, there was much to be 


And much that the children would do 

Oh, but there was no sight that was greater that 


Then young Nate who was holding a shoe. 

When they went on a boat that was destined to 


'Cross the river and back to the town. 

Oh, there started a brawl, on the deck and the 


And ran on until someone went down. 

For out the boy went when, a young lad named 


Knocked Nathaniel down onto the land. 

But when Ben called to Nate, 'twas already too 


For the shoe had flown out of Nate's hand. 

And down to the sea went the ragged Nike. 

To the depths, went the sneaker that day. 

And though Nate cried and wailed. Oh, he never 


For the shoe it was destined to stay. 

And Nate watched it go down, to the river's cold 


With the trash of the city it laid. 

But with junk too, lies the little boy's shoe, 

'Till old age makes it wither or fade. 

And once in a way, all the sailors will say, 

'Twas a good vessel strong, proud, and true 

And, though legends are great, the true tale is of 


And the loss of a size-seven shoe. 

The Conspiracy 

They stare so intensely, with small cunning 


Their frail little bodies make the perfect 


They walk around calmly and stand so erect. 

Such a brilliant deceit, you would never 


The government denies this, but I know the 

The seagulls are here to devour our youths. 

They're almost through waiting the time is so 


Their heinous intentions now perfectly clear. 

They loom high above us, and seek out the 


With agile wings and a razor-like beak. 

It may seem a bit strange, but believe me it's 

Anyone could be next, perhaps even you. 

And time is so near now, they're ready to strike. 

They came to reshape the world as they like. 
They make organized raids, from their secretive 


They plan to enslave the whole human race. 

Their plans must be stopped, before they take 

I ask of you now to continue my fight!

The Canadian North 


With the wind blowing high 

And the icy chill pressing against my face, 

I walk on. 

The glaciers stand tall and majestic 

Over the barren world, 

I walk on. 

The call of the wolf 

And the growl of the polar bear, 

I walk on. 

The harsh conditions 

In the glum wilderness, 

I walk on. 

The hope that I will return home 

From this icy hole of death, 

I walk on. 

The screams and cries 

Of men who have died before me, 

I walk on. 

The snow pressing 

Upon my chilled neck, 

I walk on. 

The Artie at its very worst 

Is the place my body comes to rest, 

I walk on.
