When you get involved with fighting for accessible education and against tuition increases, you quickly discover that many student representatives are virtuosos at both pretending to take action and taking credit for the work of others.
Believe me, this is not a hopeless fight. Much more could be accomplished at Concordia if all undergraduate student representatives were giving their best effort.
When I was involved in organizing WHALE, unfortunately it was only Morgan Pudwell of the CSU executives that was around. Of the executives, it was only Morgan that gave material organizing support, and she did an inhuman amount of work.
I’m a graduate student, so I don’t need to give a damn about the ins and outs of CSU politics, but I hate to see someone who works so hard and who blew me away with her effectiveness, punished because she made Heather Lucas and Adrien Severyns look bad.Undergraduates, please don’t make me deal with people like this next year.
