Quotes

...in this election when two major candidates don't see any value in our issues," said Rajean Hoillett, President of the Ryerson Students Union. "If anyone is looking for a reason why young people don't vote in large numbers, this is it. We extended our hand as an invitation, only to have Mr. Tory and Mr. Ford knock it away."
"We expect that candidates are going to keep to their promises."
"By leaving organizers in the lurch without an explanation, it is assumed that Tory is unwilling to face these issues."
In response, Tory said that "if experience was the sole determinant of that, then I guess we wouldn't be having this discussion."
