Pulse & Recreation Expansion and Student Activity Building Referendum will take place March 22 and 23.

March 2, 2017 at 09:00 am

In January, alongside the MSU Presidential election, students voted in several referenda, including a multi-part, preferential question regarding the potential expansion of the Pulse and/or the creation of a new Student Activity Building. Though close, that referendum failed.

In late February, the University made a new financial commitment to the potential project, to the amount of $10 million. With the additional funding, the financial impact to students would be reduced by nearly 25%. Thus, at the meeting of February 26, 2017, the Student Representative Assembly debated the creation of a new, special referendum under bylaw 10 - Elections 3.5.1.  The motion carried by more than 2/3 of the Assembly and a referendum will be held March 22 and 23. 

Students may nominate / register themselves to participate on a YES or NO campaign team from March 2 until March 15.  The campaign period will commence on March 16 and run through March 23. Voting will take place March 22 and March 23 online via a student's McMaster email address.
