I believe that in our culture of simulation, the notion of authenticity is for us what sex was for the Victorians—threat and obsession, taboo and fascination.

Big Changes (Might) Happen in the Student Union

By Connor Simpson

If you follow any of your student councillors on Twitter, you should be at least vaguely aware that Sunday’s council meeting was exciting (for a change). There sure was a lot of hullaballoo on the internet! The week leading up to it had students speaking out on Facebook and asking all sorts of questions. They all seemed jazzed with the result, and there was even some “electricity” surrounding the meeting, so we’ve decided to explain what exactly went down. Some of it is important (some of it’s not).

Last week a collection of students (and some councillors) decided to start a Facebook campaign advocating that the Student Union’s budget be made available to the public, or at least accessible to UPEI students. There was a call-to-arms Facebook status being copied and pasted around UPEI students walls that gathered a few likes and comments of support. It read:

$700 of your dollars will go to the UPEISU over four years. Do you think that the SU budget should be accessible to the students and be able to see how they’re spending your money? Post this if you are concerned about SU finances.

The rub: the budget was already available to any curious UPEI student who was curious enough to actually ask to see it. If you were to go to the VP Finance’s office, whoever was acting in the position would gladly walk you through it. There were vague plans for accessibility to come up in an SU meeting before this people’s revolution (we’re told), but the Facebook campaign pushed it to the forefront of everyone’s mind. (That some councillors posted this to their status without knowing the official policy is…)
