On this special episode of The Ear-opener, Izabella guides you through the ins and outs of the Canadian Federation of Students, also known as the CFS.
A member since 1982, Ryerson’s Student Union pays more than half a million dollars to the CFS to support its campaigns, movements and resources all geared toward a “United Student Front.”
Last weekend, Izabella reported from the 37th annual Canadian Federation of Students in Gatineau, Que. on behalf of The Eyeopener, but the Ryerson Student Union was nowhere to be found. RSU president said it was too expensive to send someone, but if they’re still paying fees to the CFS, shouldn’t they at least reap the benefits that come from it? Or use their right to vote to help bring change to university life here at Ryerson?
For this episode, Izabella will explain the history of the CFS, their relationship with the RSU and the inside scoop on what happened at the Annual General Meeting.
