SSMU Election Endorsement: VP External – Myriam Zaidi

In the last two years the SSMU vice-president external has played a less visible role in student life.

COMMENTARY: Why we need the Trib

Let's talk about accountability. I realize that sounds about as enticing as "let's shovel horse manure" or "let's talk about our relationship," but bear with me. Right now, a student politician is wasting your money. Or maybe - if it's a good day - they're just saying something stupid on your behalf.

COMMENTARY: What the Tribune taught me

Although four years and thousands of dollars was a steep price, I do give McGill credit for teaching me one extremely important lesson: the most relevant, edifying learning is accomplished outside the classroom. At first I thought that university would be training.

SSMU Election Endorsement: VP University Affairs – David Lipsitz

The Tribune strongly endorses David Lipsitz for the position of vice-president university affairs. While we were impressed with the content of Joshua Abaki's interview with the Tribune and with his performance at the candidate debates, the editorial board ultimately decided that Lipsitz's familiarity with the UA portfolio and the tangible, practical nature of his platform goals make him the stronger candidate.
