“students have never had access to this information and they will not now” says Concordia Administration

October 27th:

students have never had access to this information and they will not now” says Concordia Administration

(in response to CSU request for details of the new exclusivity contract with Pepsi to be signed this friday)

 

In the wake of today’s rally and sit-in protesting the new exclusivity contract between Concordia and Pepsi set to be signed this friday- it has been made undeniably clear that the admin has no desire to hear student voice or follow through with legally mandated methods of public consultation and transparency on this issue.

It has also become clear that the rights and voice of the Concordia community will only be heard on this issue if we, as a community, actively stand up and demand they be.

 

Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that we come together as a community and created a unified movement towards retaining those rights and reclaiming public control and administrative accountability

.

To do so we will meet tomorrow at the:

Public Assembly On Corporatization of Concordia

October 28th, 2010

6pm-9pm @QPRIG Concordia

1500 Maisonneuve

(or meet at 5:30 in the Hall building Lobby)

 

Now, more than ever, we need to send a clear message that the public will no longer take this disregard and abuse on the part of the University administration and Corporate bodies.

 

We must stand up for our rights, and we must set a precedent NOW that this is not accapetable and will NOT be tolerated.

see you tomorrow.

    This just in!

    On April 30th, 2003 the Concordia Student Union was granted access to (some) details of Concordia’s exclusivity contract with Pepsico via the Access to Information Commission.

    So it looks like students HAVE had access, we STILL DO have access to this information, and it definitely follows that yes, WE DO HAVE THE RIGHT.
