From my 3+ years of working with SSMU’s clubs, services, and Environment Committee, I know what the SSMU has to offer, but also that its procedures are daunting. I understand the problems students face navigating bureaucracy and room bookings from my experience as front desk receptionist, and through leadership of sustainability initiatives like the Plate Club, I know how to green the SSMU. I will increase student space, see concrete sustainability projects through, create platforms for groups’ needs to be communicated, and encourage student initiatives that go beyond the Shatner building. VOTE EXPERIENCE – On your side: Cooper for clubs!
My extensive experience as a Senator and Councillor prepared me to excel as VP University Affairs. I established a working relationship with both McGill and SSMU through different initiatives such as Academic Amnesty, livestreaming Senate, and re-establishing the undergraduate society of my faculty.
My pragmatic approach concerning November 10 and the Judicial Board helped to create compromised solutions.
Goals include getting Senate live streamed, making the G.A. more democratic, ensuring safe space community, improving the Student Handbook, making McGill more functionally bilingual, and serving as an effective liaison between students and administration.
Vote for unity and leadership.
I’m your SSMU VP Finance & Operations and served as Funding Coordinator 2010-2011. I’ve spearheaded the student-run café, increased funding for clubs, and integrated sustainable accounting policies at SSMU. My experience will help to overhaul the SSMU Bureaucracy to make the SSMU more relevant by empowering student representatives to be more proactive. Through collaboration with new food services in the building, I will integrate sustainability with the eco-clamshells. Lastly, I will engage staff through stronger human resources policies/practices and empower student involvement by creating research opportunities within SSMU to increase practical experience.
Experience. Make it work for you! VOTE PATEL!

SSMU is holding a referendum to ask students if they support a fee to maintain the current coverage offered by the SSMU Health and Dental Plan. The fee has not been increased since the last student referendum in 2005, although Plan usage and coverage have both increased. Some of the new benefits added to the Plan since 2005 include vision care (eye exams, eyeglasses and contact lenses), increased vaccination and dental coverage, and tuition insurance. If the fee remains unaltered, students will see a progressive decrease in overall coverage.
