The Dawson Student Union (DSU) held a short meeting on Thursday, April 22 at 5:30 p.m. in room 3H.4 discussing the Golf Tournament fundraiser, the promotion of the water foundation, Sustainable Dawson as well as the Student Life Assistant Contract.

The meeting started off by examining the letter of agreement to be signed by all who are related to the progressive elimination of the sale of bottled water on campus.

“The University of Ottawa announced their commitment today, which will make us the sixth school to do so once everything is signed,” Mathieu Murphy-Perron, DSU Executive Director said.

In addition, the DSU voted to give $500 of their budget money to the Dawson Golf Tournament to raise money for loans and bursaries for students.

“In the past, the DSU gave a large amount of money to the Golf Tournament, we are sponsoring them,” DSU President Carl Perks said

Furthermore, the DSU passed a motion to affiliate with Sustainable Dawson.

“In light of the current events and the fliers peculating about Sustainable Dawson, we decided to work with them,” Perks explained.

The DSU then went in-camera to discuss the contract of the club coordinator, Vijay Khrishna.

The DSU meeting came to a close by confirming that The Yes Men event, originally scheduled for April 21, will be rescheduled to May 6 at 6 p.m.

“[The event] had been postponed due to the fact that our favorite hoaxers are grounded in Scotland under a cloud of volcanic ash,” Murphy-Perron said.
