uRegina students approve fee for gay pride centre

January 20, 2012

University of Regina students have voted to make regular payments to the campus gay pride centre. A referendum last week asked if full-time students would pay $1 and part-time students 50 cents per term to support the UR Pride Centre for Sexuality and Gender Diversity. As a result of the vote, the centre will receive about $20,000 annually. Until now, the centre has had to apply annually for a grant from the students' union. In the future, the funding will be deducted automatically when students pay their tuition. There is also an opt-out clause for students who do not want to pay the fee. CBC
