2017-18 BUSAC and Senate Elections and Referenda

The October Election period is generally used to select the remaining members of the Brock University Students’ Administrative Council (BUSAC), but all positions were either filled last March, or were acclaimed this election period.

Instead, this election period will simply ask one referendum question to students: “Do you support a $34.67 increase to the Bus Pass Fee ($212.33 to $247.00) starting September 2018 as outlined in the Memorandum of Understanding?”

What happens if I vote Yes?

  • Improve/Add routes and frequency
  • Ensure financial stability in the bus pass budget
  • Allow for future growth of routes, GO Transit and later schedules
  • Possible subsidies for Spring/Summer service

What happens if I vote No?

  • Removal of routes and service areas to balance the budget
  • Less frequent times for routes
  • Busier and more crowded buses due to removed stops and routes

How do I vote?
Students will be sent a link to a ballot through their @brocku.ca email addresses on October 24th. Just click the link provided and you’ll be able to vote.
