Meeting sees talk on freedom of the press, Dorimain’s March 5 statements.
For a federation that claims to recognize the legitimacy and validity of students rights and representation, the actions, or lack thereof, of the SFUO executive members exemplify the opposite with overt apathy for representing students.
On Jan. 26, the Student Federation of the University of Ottawa (SFUO) held their third Board of Administration (BOA) meeting of the month, where Faculty of Social Sciences representative Tony Bui raised some “serious concerns” about the upcoming general election.
Adding 10 extra faculty seats to the BOA would bring down our ratio to about 1,000 students per rep—not only giving students more representation, but giving students more chances to get involved.
“Luckily, the SFUO seems to be prepared for this. Their website is so dense and impenetrable that no hacker will be able to get access to any sensitive information.”—Michel Ghost, U of O cybersecurity expert.
