Pro Tem’s Spring Referendum


Did you know that Pro Tem is having a referendum next month? Well, we are, and we need your vote!

What will you be voting for if you vote ‘YES’ for Pro Tem?

  • A BIG step towards Pro Tem’s financial independence from the GCSU

  • A student newspaper able to operate in a more critical manner, without fear of financial renegotiations

  • A $0.10 per credit increase to the levy we receive directly from student tuition, which will be offsetting a $0.13 per credit decrease already set in place with the GCSU

  • Having this levy be indexed to the Toronto Consumer Price Index to account for year-to-year increases in our operational costs

Sounds good, how and when do I vote?

  • The online voting period opens Monday, March 5th at 12:00am and will continue until 11:59pm on Thursday, March 8th.

  • To vote, simply log in to using your Passport York details, click on “Pro Tem Referendum” and cast your vote!

  • Alternatively, you can drop by the Glendon polling station, which will be set up outside the cafeteria from 9am to 6pm, Monday through Thursday.
