These services were voted in by students, for students, and for the most part are run by students. In threatening the stability of these services, the Ford government is ignoring the democratic means through which these services came to be.

The U of O needs a secondary walk-in clinic on campus. As the student population grows, so will wait times. There’s a plethora of walk-in clinics on Rideau, but who wants to venture out that far when they’re coughing up a lung?

The implant is perfect for young women who don’t want to have the responsibility of taking or changing birth control, who don’t have the financial ability to afford an IUD, who don’t want the estrogen that Depo-Provera has, and who want to be discreet about their birth control, like many university students.

Dave & Buster’s is comparable to an “adult Chuck E Cheese” minus the creepy animatronics and greasy pizza. They offer a full service restaurant, bar, as well as an arcade.

Squaring this number with the over 57 per cent of people aged 18 to 24 who voted in the 2015 federal election proves we can—and should—do better.
