Taking bets: how long will UManitoba’s new president’s honeymoon last?


 

My home university has a new president and I am taking bets on how long before the University of Manitoba Students’ Union starts attacking him.

Dr. David Barnard started his first day by attending two “informal gathering” at the Winnipeg campuses of the university. At the first, greetings were conveyed by UMSU.

Got me thinking, how long before UMSU really greets the new prez.  I’m putting my bets on the first day of the new school year in September. Anyone else have a date?

  1. Lotta variables here – what is his stance on tuition and tuition freezes? Given that the province is lifting the freeze next year, it’s a bit of a moot issue. Therefore, I say he has at least until November, though I wouldn’t be surprised if he makes it to second term, provided he says all the soothing words that UMSU likes to hear.

    What are we betting?
