uOttawa student leaders demand “culture change” in response to union’s budget crisis

April 5, 2016

Newly elected student leaders at the University of Ottawa are calling for a “culture change” in the school’s Student Federation, reports the Ottawa Citizen. The call for change comes primarily in response to the $515 K deficit that the Federation’s leadership will inherit from the previous student government. SFUO Board of Administration member Nicholas Robinson says that he’s “appalled” by the financial situation and that “a lot of the people responsible for this mess have already graduated and are going to get away without being held accountable.” SFUO announced last week that it would make staff reductions to help control the deficit.
