Carleton pro-life group to sue

Wants official student group status restored

Pro-life student group, Carleton Lifeline, is threatening to sue the students’ union if its official student group status is not restored. The group was officially de-certified last week after the Carleton University Students’ Association (CUSA) informed them that the group’s constitution would have to be amended to be brought inline with the students’ union’s pro-choice stance. Without official club status Carleton Lifeline would not receive the same funding that other student groups are entitled to, and would not be permitted to use CUSA controlled space for their advocacy. Albertos Polizogopoulos, the group’s lawyer, said earlier this week that if the group is not re-certified, legal action will be pursued. Prior to last week, Carleton Lifeline had been certified since early 2007.
