Operations and Finance Vice-presidential and Commission candidates pleaded their cases at the Op-Fi candidates' forum last week.

Vice-president hopefuls Jordan Bonner, Natasha Dhillon and Travis Fast and aspiring commissioners Les Champ, Mark Counsell, Jana Hanova, Matt Stambaugh and Robbie White were quizzed by outgoing VP Op-Fi Matt Lauzon, who asked the candidates how they plan to approach the tuition issue.
