uOttawa student union ready to join CFS

July 30, 2008

At its monthly meeting on Sunday, the Student Federation of the University of Ottawa voted in favour of seeking membership in the Canadian Federation of Students. Just a year ago, SFUO's Board of Administration rejected potential membership in the CFS, but now has reversed its position. SFUO's membership won't be official for another few weeks, at which time CFS's national executive will consider the application. One student union executive said he voted against the motion because of CFS's "unfair" referendum rules. Maclean's OnCampus
