What is it about those with power fear about the scrutiny of those without power? Oh. There are more of us without power than with power. If we were ever to harness our collective might the rule making elites would be history.

Finally signs of green at the new MacInnes Field, but don't be fooled. This is astroturf. It is not real grass. destroyed a much-loved outdoor pool and converted it to underground parking for 216-cars with fake grass on top. How was this ever approved?

It is worth while to review the third party opinion that led the not to divest since it is filled with terrible arguments and shows no understanding of academic values:

Who would have thought a that faked a fire alarm to clear out everyone on campus to secretively and violently dismiss President Gupta would do this🙀 It seems the politically appointed real estate agents and property developers are running a supposedly academic univ well

Since per the attached passage it has already been determined that matters discussed in open meetings can be discussed publicly without compromising the mandate of the Board, I find the proposed changes against the spirit of openness.

the first set of committee meetings are next week (less than 7 days away). But aside from the schedule you will find no info on what matters might be discussed - it's called governance topic lottery!

Things members do to not engage with silent protest: -intently fold an umbrella while walking by -intently stare at a phone while walking by -intently stare straight ahead and power-walk by as if propelled by metaphysical forces of attraction You get the idea

What I've consistently wondered -from time as Director, a member of the Exec, to my current work as Governor- is why're so many people so opposed to transparency and openness? Left, right, or otherwise, so many are afraid of public scrutiny. Why?

UBC, and their terrible , never seem to run out of controversies, often of their own creation.. it’s beyond sad at that his point. Also, why is the top rotten in so many important public institutions?

Today's general meeting capped off this year's intense discussion on tuition increases. While they are approved for next year, the margins are historically slim.

ERRATUM: We mistakenly identified the person sitting next to Jenn Smith at as Kari Simpson, leader of Culture Guard (a homophobic Christian extremist group that supports Smith). It is in fact Jeanette Standerwick. We regret the error & will be more careful in the future.
