Former Montreal Expos Bill ‘Spaceman’ Lee revives his political career

Despite his strong sense of justice, it is tough to know when to take Lee seriously.

McGill Redmen football’s (2-2) offence stalled in a 20-11 defeat to the Sherbrooke Vert et Or (2-2), on a blustery Sept. 24 day at McGill’s Molson Stadium. It was a disappointing loss for the Redmen, who led the Vert et Or for the first three quarters of the game.
