    Founded in 1848, the University of Ottawa adopted its official colours Garnet and Grey, and like many nineteenth-century institutions, the athletics teams were known only by the school's colours. Eventually, a connection was made between the shorthand "GGs" and "Gee-Gee", the common British nickname for a racehorse. The unique Gee-Gees name and iconic logo known today is a result of 170 years of history in Ottawa

    Laurentian is cutting 60 programs with subsequent job loss. No mention of sports but this can not be a good thing for their varsity sports going forward. And to think that just a few years ago there was a movement in Sudbury to try and get Laurentian to bring back football. Not going to happen.

    All NS universities are set for a full return to campus this September. Presumably, NB will follow - even though that province has been seeing some recent and lingering problems with the pandemic. Our Maritime bubble has been pushed back another couple weeks out of an abundance of caution.

    Laurentian has just chopped its Varsity M&W Hockey Teams and its M&W Swim Teams. It is expected that many of the student-athletes will look for universities to transfer to.
