uWindsor students vote against funding $73 M athletics complex

December 4, 2015

Students at the University of Windsor have voted against the imposition of a fee that would have gone toward the construction of a $73 M addition to the campus sports facilities. The voting, conducted over Tuesday and Wednesday, was actually three votes rolled into one. Three separate groups—full-time undergraduates, part-time students, and graduate students—all needed to vote in favour of the initiative for it to pass. While undergraduates and part-time students narrowly approved the initiative, 54% of graduate students voted to reject it. If it had passed, the fee would have added $125 to existing student fees, rising to $176, for 22 years beginning upon completion of construction. CBC | CTV News | Windsor Star
