Making history

Hello all! It has been a busy term! Everything is winding down and finals are arriving soon. Amongst the rush of getting midterms finished and assignments completed UTSC held the historic student referendum for a new athletic complex.

UTSC has voted "YES" to the new state-of-the-art athletics complex following a historic referendum. Here's parts from the article:

The unofficial vote count is: 1454 yes, 748 no, representing a 62 per cent majority in favour of YES (with 58 abstained and 77 spoiled ballots). The results are unofficial until they pass through the normal schedule of ratification by the SCSU and the University.

With 2,337 ballots cast, this represents 23 per cent of the student body and the highest participation level of any student referendum on the UTSC campus. For the past 18 months, the students at UTSC have been working side-by-side with the other partners in developing plans for this new athletics and recreation complex. Students at UTSC have been advocating for decades for enhanced facilities. The existing athletics facility was designed for 4,000 students and is inadequate for today’s student population of over 10,000.
