More on the CUSA meeting


As noted, CUSA has voted to reinstate funding for Shinerama and Donnie Northrup has resigned. Another CUSA rep has also resigned, but I am not, as yet, sure which one.

Here is a post from a Carleton student who attended the meeting.

Additionally, the Ottawa Citizen (via the National Post) is reporting that the required number of signatures required to have a recall election to replace CUSA president Brittany Smyth have been collected: “Petitions calling for the impeachment of council president Brittany Smyth and other council members were tabled.”

  1. If, as the linked blog report is accurate, CUSA did indeed make a great effort to issue a clear an unequivocal apology (i.e defeating a simple apology and replacing it with a motion that says “CUSA apologizes for the racist and sexist statements that were made, as well as the misinformation relayed about CF” as is suggested by that blogger) then I think they are to be applauded for doing the right thing.

    In fact, having a student union stand up and take responsibility for their actions might actually be more shocking than CUSA’s original actions.

  2. Details…? Minutes available when??

  3. Stunned…
    I agree. Kudos to all.
