On April 11th, the SFU Graduate Student Society will host members of the BC Liberal party, BC NDP, and BC Green party for a debate on issues that affect students in all parts of the province. We hope you’ll join us to hear about each party’s plans to address the challenges affecting post-secondary education.

When: April 11th 2017, 5 – 7 pm. Doors open at 4:30pm.

Where: Asia Pacific Hall, Wosk Centre for Dialogue, 580 W Hastings.

Who:

  • Hon. Andrew Wilkinson, Minister of Advanced Education and representative for the BC Liberal Party

  • Dr. Michael Markwick, representative for the BC Green Party and candidate for West Vancouver-Capilano

  • David Eby, Housing Critic and representative for the BC NDP

After a round of opening remarks, candidates will respond to a list of questions from participating student societies. Topics will include the affordability of post-secondary education, transit, and the growing demand for on-campus housing.

Universities, colleges, and institutes make vital social, cultural, and economic contributions to our province. This is our chance to remind decision makers that student issues are BC issues. Let’s make sure our voices are heard this election.
