CFS defends bar


The University of Waterloo Federation of Students faces a challenge as university officials moved to seize the management of the student bar and all associated revenues, according to the CFS.

“This heavy-handed approach by the administration at the University of Waterloo is another example in a growing list of instances where local Administrations interfere with the democratic rights of students to organize and run services cooperatively,” said Joel Duff, Ontario Chairperson of the Canadian Federation of Students on May 29.

CFS alleges the university violated their agreement with the Waterloo Federation of Students and the Liquor License Act of Ontario. CFS also claims the administration’s actions “curtail the advocacy work of students or to increase the administrations’ revenue at the expense of students’ organizations.”
