New loophole in BC domestic tuition cap: a gchat dialogue.: UBC got some flack this year for their mega tuition increases for international students. Domestic students have been spared from drastic changes in the cost of education in recent years thanks to a BC government policy limiting tuition+fee increases to 2% a year since 2005.

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.
