After 10 years, Mount Royal University’s bid to have its sports teams compete in the same conference as other western universities is finally coming to a close. Earlier this week, members of the Canada West University Athletic Association voted 75 per cent to allow Mount Royal to join on provisional terms. The school will have to complete a probationary period of up to five years, before it assumes full membership. Canada West is one of four regional conferences whose members comprise Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS). The national organization will vote on Mount Royal’s membership in June.
