Former CBC Radio host Jian Ghomeshi, centre, is escorted by police out of court past members of the media in Toronto on Nov. In the 1990s, it could be found in the liner notes on cassette and CD covers, and in the inky pages of alternative weeklies. On Monday, the man the Globe and Mail once referred to as a radio superstar will go on trial in Ontario Court on four counts of sexual assault and one count of overcoming resistance by choking.
Whatever the outcome of his trial, the 48-year-old Ghomeshi is unlikely to attain the celebrity status he once enjoyed. Ghomeshi was born in London, England, to Iranian parents on June 9, 1967, and moved to Canada in 1974.
His identity as a music and culture-obsessed extrovert took off in 1982, which is why he used that year as a title for a memoir he wrote. At Thornlea Secondary School he discovered music and a love for David Bowie, Talking Heads and new wave music. Ghomeshi was in the middle of earning a BA in political science, with a minor in women's studies, when he ran for student union president at York University in Toronto in early 1990. His platform, which he said was informed by his women's studies minor, included increasing funding for York's Women's Centre and promoting the importance of sexual consent. He was spurred on by infamous signs that hung from windows of dorm rooms at Queen's University in Kingston, Ont., the previous year that read, "No Means Yes" and "No Means Harder," mocking the consent campaign No Means No. His feminist campaign helped him beat his nearest rival a€” the only woman on the ballot a€” by hundreds of votes. On weekends, he and his friends could be found outside the Bloor Cinema singing a cappella songs.
The music attracted the attention of a producer on CBC's drive-home radio show Later The Same Day and the group was tapped to sing songs about the headlines of the day.
By the time Moxy FrA?vous disbanded in 2001, Ghomeshi had already embarked on new projects.


The CBC hired him to host Play, a weekly, televised culture show with a studio audience that lasted three seasons before being cancelled due to poor ratings. In 2007, Ghomeshi would help launch Q, a daily arts show on Radio 1, and it didn't take long for the show to gain a following. Ghomeshi hosted several Canadian awards shows, like the Giller Prize gala, and attended many red carpet events. The grant is designed to assist women with university studies, which will lead to careers helping to improve the quality of other women's lives – a goal Roosen plans on achieving.
According to the research literature, women with disabilities have an increased risk of developing an eating disorder, but these same women are not showing up at programs designed to deal with the issue, says Roosen, who studies in York’s Faculty of Health.
Having conducted a clinical practicum at the Centre for Addiction & Mental Health for women with eating disorders, she has witnessed the lack of involvement of disabled women first-hand. Roosen knows intimately some of the barriers experienced by young physically disabled women. She has published two chapters on body image and one article on disability and psychotherapy, and frequently speaks to the community on disability awareness, eating disorders and body image in women.
Roosen has previously won the Terry Fox Humanitarian Award and a Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. For more information about the grant for Canadian Women Graduate students, visit the Soroptimist Foundation of Canada website.
She will soon be introducing a new course to the IDST curriculum: Contemporary Issues in Global Health. By the 2000s, he was going by Jian and the Ghomeshi name could be heard regularly on the CBC. The family settled in the suburb of Thornhill, just north of Toronto, where Ghomeshi spent his teen years.
Less than two years later, in 1986, Ghomeshi made what is believed to be his first appearance on a CBC-TV show.


One song, about the International Festival of Authors, called My Baby Loves a Bunch of Authors, was later recorded with another Ghomeshi band, Moxy FrA?vous. His ex-bandmates would later turn against him after allegations of sexual assault were made public. In 1992, Moxy FrA?vous recorded King of Spain, which would become a number 1 single in Canada. He was dabbling in music management and freelancing music and arts articles, and found success quickly.
Hons. ’07, MA ’09)  is one of four winners of a Soroptimist Foundation of Canada grant for Canadian women graduate students worth $7,500 for her research and advocacy work. Her doctoral research will include in-depth analysis of body image and eating concerns in young women with physical disabilities. That’s when she began to ask questions, such as: are eating disorders programs set up to handle a disabled person? He writes in 1982 about finding his voice with the opposite sex, too, gaining the courage to ask out an "older woman" a€” one year older than he was at the time.
The denim clad 19-year-old was on the music show Switchback with his new wave band, Tall New Buildings. The video, filmed outside the Bloor Cinema, featured late federal NDP leader Jack Layton, "Honest" Ed Mirvish and pop culture writer Daniel Richler.
