I’d prefer repeal, but at least we’re getting somewhere. We’re probably getting somewhere based on the reaction of the sense making segments of the world rather than student leaders coming to whatever senses they may happen to have to come to, but I’ll take what I can get.
Brittany Smyth, president of CUSA, said Wednesday that the motion caused so much confusion that it’s probably better to look again at the idea of supporting a rotating series of charities instead of just the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
“By no means do we want anyone to think that our council or students at Carleton don’t support research for cystic fibrosis,” Smyth said. “It’s definitely a very worthwhile charity and we want to clear up that confusion.”
I know that voting on stuff regardless of whether or not it’s in anybody’s best interests or whether or not anybody actually understands what they’re voting on or even whether or not it has any basis in fact whatsoever is well established government procedure, but that doesn’t mean the rest of the world has to do it too. If the thing is confusing, fix it and try again! Is this stuff really that hard?
