Newly elected Academic Commissioners Kassim Amery and Birju Dattani's campaigns violated six election bylaws during the Students' Union by-election according to an SU vice-president.

Phrases like "campaigns hijacked democracy," "poor moral character," and "bylaws were violated with impunity" described two unidentified candidates' campaigns in the SU Chief Returning Officer's by-election report to the Students' Legislative Council Tue., Nov. 18.

It's encouraging that the SU VP events forum was entertaining and well-attended--hopefully it proves prophetic for that portfolio next year. Last Thu., Feb. 6, two of the three would-be VPs--Lawrence Bailey and Richard "Krafty" Bergen--spent an hour answering questions from current SU VP Events Irene Enyedy and numerous audience members. Third candidate Anant Patel missed the forum because of a conflict with his workplace.

One hundred students listened to Students' Union presidential candidates speak about their plans for the future on Mon., Feb. 10. All candidates had ambitious goals, but apathy got universal attention from the field.

"There's more than 30,000 students on campus, only a select few end up caring," said Kyle Gould. "I'm that person who's going to incite people to stop and care."

Chris Blatch's idea for reducing apathy among students is to inform both them and members of the community about student issues.
