City fails to act on Northdale issue

RE: A new vision for Northdale

I wasn’t expecting much from that meeting so agreeing to make a plan that will make another plan at some undetermined future date sounds about right.

I was more concerned, however, that in a discussion almost entirely centered around students and an area heavily inhabited by students only UW decided it was important enough to have a representative from their student union present.

There was a great show of joint support from both UW and WLU administration yet absolutely no presence from WLUSU on behalf of Laurier students.

Perhaps it’s time the Union start taking little steps like defending the image of students against a mob of residents all too eager to blame every problem in their lives on students…

Oh wait, that would actually be representation from our representative body… does the Union still do that?
