I've reset my password/tried in incognito/manually entered everything/tried in different browsers and still no luck.

We review your city: Regina, Saskatchewan: In this semi-regular feature, the Syrup Trap reviews a Canadian city.

If There’s a Reason: A Letter from a Survivor of the Campus Sexual Misconduct Debacle: Content note: this letter discusses sexual assault I had a hard time deciding who this letter should be addressed to. There’s a lot of people I want to address, you see. The first, of course, is the scumbag who sexually assaulted me. And I guess I could talk about that. But, as a professor once ...
Reflections on Raising and Burning Flags…: As a queer man, the recent burning of the gay rainbow flag at the University of British Columbia has not caused me any lost sleep.

This Votermedia ballot is not currently funded. It is displayed as a demo for if and when there is funding. Without funding there may be few votes, which makes the rankings less meaningful. During the 2015 UBC AMS elections we ran two UBC AMS votermedia contests: A $700 Continuous VoterMedia (CVM) contest on the ballot above, and a $1500 One-Time Elections VoterMedia (1VM) contest funded by AMS -- see info linked here.
