CSU Elections

Nominations are currently open for the CSU executive positions of International Students Liaison and Social Justice Liaison. Any student may pick up a nomination form, and due to a recent policy change, they only require 5 signatures to be nominated instead of 15.

The International Students Liaison coordinates the International Students committee, and has in the past organized events such as laser tag and movie nights. The Social Justice Liaison is in charge of the CSU’s largest committee, which has put on events such as Hip Hop Versus War, Five Days for Homelessness, and various documentary screenings.

As well as coordinating their respective committees, these Liaisons become a part of the CSU Executive Committee, which allows them to vote on a variety of issues as a representative of the student body.

Nominations close on January 22, and campaigning begins on the 24. Elections take place from February 1-3, and all students are encouraged to cast their vote. Students can get informed about the candidates at the all-candidates forum on Thursday January 28, at which time they are also welcome to pose questions to the candidates.


ChatLive groups provide an opportunity for students to have informal, academic discussions about a variety of interesting topics. They are free to register for, and no marks are involved, but participation is noted on transcripts. This year, the groups offered are “Alternative 'What If' History”, “The Last Film I Saw Rocked (or Not So Much)”, and “Change Pilots”.

U-Pass Surcharge Exemption

When using the Canada Line, customers purchasing tickets from the
Ticket Vending Machines will be charged an additional five dollars to
travel from YVR-Airport, Sea Island Centre and Templeton Station to
Bridgeport Station, on top of the standard fare. However, as of a state-
ment released by Translink on January 8, anyone holding a pre-paid fare
will be exempt from this charge. This means that all U-Pass holders will not
have to pay a surcharge on travel on transit from the airport.
