general assembly

The Board of Directors of the University of Ottawa Students’ Union met on Thursday night where they approved the agenda for the upcoming General Assembly, to be held on Nov. 7. They also passed a motion to support an upcoming on-campus rally against cuts to OSAP and the introduction of the Student Choice Initiative.

There is no “right” versus “wrong”. There are policies that occur that must be discussed and debated. These policies are important to people here in Canada, but also to the lived experiences of Palestinians and Israelis. However, we must have the opportunities within an academic institution to fully discuss and explore these implications of policy.
