uRegina student union holds CFS membership referendum

November 8, 2010

The University of Regina Students' Union (URSU) has taken a stance against continued membership in the Canadian Federation of Students and is holding a referendum this week to exit the national organization. URSU's president says a growing number of students are feeling as though the CFS is not offering an appropriate amount of services for the membership fees charged annually. One key issue is that Saskatchewan has not had a CFS staff organizer for several years. The CFS's national chairman described the URSU's stance as "a very irregular situation to say the least," stating that it is vital for students to continue to work together across Canada to fight for a more high-quality and affordable PSE system.
