Government members reconcile after SBFA meeting goes haywire
Usually the biggest problem at a campus group’s annual general meeting is acute boredom. Not so at last week’s Students for Barrier-Free Access (SBFA) AGM, which was replete with shouting matches and the threat of legal action.
SBFA is a student group that advocates for disabled students, working closely with U of T’s accessibility services. A main agenda item at last Thursday’s meeting was the election of a new executive.
“There were two opposing slates,” said Sam Rahimi, chair of SBFA before and after the AGM. “The slate that won the elections brought about 30 people out with them to make sure they would win, and they did.”
