University of Ottawa

Now, the Tomato has become aware of what can only be considered the next logical step in both the utter democratic degeneration and persistently amusing decision-making of the Student Federation of the University of Ottawa (SFUO) and its handful of (former) executives.

This came in response to fraud allegations, and allegations of financial misconduct faced by at least three individuals on the SFUO executive, and for many students, felt long overdue. For others however, concerns of administrative interference in student governance raised red flags, and some students feel as though their voices are being stifled. We’re here to tell you that this is not the case.

The administration has a lot of questions to answer in the coming months and negotiations will be intense, but this needs to be readdressed with a proper overhaul of the SFUO. With only two executives currently serving, students need to come together to make sure that the SFUO does what it can to regain the trust of students at the U of O.

The Board of Governors met on Sept. 24 to discuss the past year’s budget, this year’s budget, the future of Brooks residence, Ontario’s free speech policy, and cannabis legislation on campus. At the end, the board went in camera to discuss the SFUO.

With the potential of being one of the biggest “sports” categories on earth due to its wide appeal and its international audience, ESports have risen from online player communities to events sponsored by corporations in the same way extreme sports gained traction in the early 2000s.
