Re: "Election overturned," Mar. 25, 2004,

Sadly, it appears even universities are not above the legal games so prevalent in elections these days. Rather than accept the will of the electorate, it seems much easier for the losers to simply throw their efforts into judicial appeals. Now Phil Barski will join Sheila Copps in the courts, unable to accept the decision handed down by the voters.

  SU appealing election furtherPDF files may take a moment to load

The Students' Union Tribunal has agreed to hear the SU's appeal of the Review Board's decision to overturn the 2004 SU General Election.

The Review Board ruled in favour of failed presidential candidate Phil Barski, declaring that voting irregularities centered around the online voting software designed by Sorex Software Inc. materially affected the outcome of the election.

"I am pleased to see that the Tribunal chair has accepted the SU's appeal," said SU President Jayna Gilchrist.

  U-Pass Not Up AssPDF files may take a moment to load

Editor, the Gauntlet,

I would like to issue a complaint about the campaign material being used by the "No" U-Pass campaign. In the electoral supplement, on posters, and on their website, the campaign is using the phrase "No Up Ass." I find that the hyphenation of "U-Pass" into "Up Ass" both offensive and distasteful. By forming an association with anal sex or with the slang meaning of "up your ass," the campaign is acting in bad taste. While it is a clever "spin," some phrases are just not called for.
