En­dorse­ment: He­len Ogun­deji

The McGill Daily - - Olde Elections -

B–th Ogun­deji and T–jib–eva re­flect ad­min­is­tra­tive ex­pe­ri­ence and suf­fi­cient un­der­stand­ing –f stu­dent p–li­tics thr–ugh inv–lve­ment in SSMU and AUS roles. How­ever, Ogun­deji demon­strates higher com­mit­ment to stu­dent ad­vo­cacy. The Daily does not en­dorse Shan­non as a po­ten­tial can­di­date.

B–th Ogun­deji and T–jib–eva are c–mmit­ted t– men­tal health as a key pri–rity and pr–p–se t– bet­ter supp–rt stu­dent in c–llab–rati–n with men­tal health ser­vices. While T–jib–eva’s pr–p–sal –f in­creased men­tal health ser­vices –ut­lines bud­get­ing pri–ri­ties and pr–cess t–wards ad­diti–nal fund­ing, Ogun­deji’s c–un­selling pr–p–sal ac­counts for the marginal­ized voices on cam­pus by specif­i­cally cater­ing to the needs of racial­ized stu­dents, as well as is­sues rooted in colo­nial­ism.

In re­sponse to the lack of ac­count­abil­ity high­lighted by the Igor Sadikov and David Aird case, To­ji­boeva pro­posed a Ssmu-spe­cific sex­ual as­sault pol­icy fol­lowed by a GA ref–rm, while Ogun­deji pr–p–sed a SSMU Ex­ec­u­tive C–de –f C–nduct. While T–jib–eva’s sug­gesti–ns pr–mises t– adv–cate f–r stu­dent in­ter­est thr–ugh a dem–cratic pr–cess, The Daily be­lieves that Ogun­deji’s platf–rm bet­ter ad­dresses SSMU’S gen­eral in­ad­e­quacy re­gard­ing ex­ec­u­tives’ misc–nduct in a m–re ex­plicit man­ner.

As such, The Daily end– rses Ogun­deji f– r this p– siti– n.
