THUNDER BAY – Students at Lakehead University will submit an application for judicial review of the recent changes to the Conflict of Interest By-laws of the University’s Board of Governors. The Student Union, in a media statement say, “The changes have removed the right of the student governors’ participation in the discussion and vote on decisions regarding tuition fees and other student issues. In doing this, the Board of Governors are silencing student voices in this important decision making process”.
On Friday morning the Student Union will provide more information on the decision to move to a judicial review.
The LU Students Union says, “In addition to the judicial review, students will launch a petition on Friday addressed to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to enshrine student positions on any decision making body of
Lakehead University including the Board of Governors within the Lakehead University Act 1965. The Lakehead University Student Union unites more than 8,100 students studying at Lakehead University at campuses in Thunder Bay and Orillia, and is an active member of the Canadian Federation of Students”.
