  VP Events - Alex VyskocilPDF files may take a moment to load

Vyskocil is easily the best candidate for VP Events. He is knowledgeable from his service in the events commission, enthusiastic about the job, has a good blend of visions for the SU, and has ideas to implement these visions.

  VP External - Mike BoschPDF files may take a moment to load

Mike Bosch told us he was afforded the opportunity to run as Barski's Cabinet's external candidate because of his ideas. Unfortunately, his actual ideas are either poorly thought out or potentially ineffective, and he has virtually no experience relevant to the job.

  VP External - Jim BaileyPDF files may take a moment to load

Jim Bailey, the closest thing to a Students' Union veteran in this race with three years in either the Student Legislative Council or Student Academic Assembly, certainly has potential. Bailey has witnessed two different attitudes toward tuition as an elected official and, like other candidates, wants to see both in an inclusive approach.

  President - Christopher NgPDF files may take a moment to load

Ambition and idealism should never obscure reason.

Case in fact: Christopher Ng.

A relatively inexperienced and inactive member of this year's academic commission, Ng blames his lack of productivity primarily on current Vice-President Academic Demetrios Nicolaides, saying he "doesn't give me anything to do."

His solution? Running for president.

  Thanks for nothing, PaulPDF files may take a moment to load

He has spoken.

In an event awaited by a slim, yet vocal and interested, minority of students, Canada's newly crowned Prime Minister Paul Martin kicked off his election campaign--err, term in office--with a speech from the throne, read by Her Excellency Adrienne Clarkson, the television host turned faux Queen.

  President - Phil BarskiPDF files may take a moment to load

Phil Barski is by far the most intriguing candidate in the presidential race. He is fielding a near-complete slate of candidates (VP Events being a notable exception), is the face of a well-organized and energetic campaign, and is the definition of an outsider.

  Bedroom etiquettePDF files may take a moment to load

As children, we learn the basics of etiquette and good manners. They are taught to us by parents, teachers and respectable elders. These coaches, however, seem to be ill equipped when it comes to lessons of bedroom etiquette.

Some standards are well known and can relate to life both in and out of the bedroom. For example, we all know that "please" is a magic word and that it's a good idea to help clean up after "dinner." We know it's about giving as much as receiving and that a "thank you" can go a long way.

  Ballots - Natalie SitPDF files may take a moment to load

President: Bryan West

While he is a tired retread of SU inbreeding, he is the "best" of the six candidates.

VP Academic: Laura Schultz

She's smart, knowledgeable and has concrete plans. You would do the students a huge disservice by not voting for her.

VP External: Kevin Maloney

Kevin Maloney. He beats out fellow candidate Jim Bailey just by the fact Maloney definitely wants to use CASA and CAUS for all their worth. And he's got Trogdor on his side.

  Ballots - Ben HoffmanPDF files may take a moment to load

President: Bryan West

West has the most relevant experience and is the least likely to make a mess of things. A close second to Andrew Simon, who had many great ideas.

VP Academic: Laura Schultz

No amount of radical ideas or personality beats a good knowlege of the subect at hand, which is something Schultz definitely has over her opponents.

VP External: Jim Bailey

February 05, 2004
  Ballots - James KellerPDF files may take a moment to load

President: Bryan West

With no phenomenal candidates in this year's election, West comes out far ahead of a list of unprepared and unqualified opponents.

VP Academic: Laura Schultz

As one of the most qualified candidates in any race, Schultz is poised to blow her opponents out of the water.

VP External: Kevin Maloney

While he has room to grow, there's no question Maloney is qualified and will make a good VP external, inching just ahead of Jim Bailey.
