Six candidates. Four positions. The Ryerson Students' Union has been electing the same slate for years by default, because competition is virtually non-existent.
After an underwhelming turnout at the candidates’ debate last Tuesday, student apathy seems to be behind this trend.
Anyone can run, but almost no one does.
This year, aside from a joke candidate running on behalf of the Eyeopener, there’s a single student going up against Students United, the reigning slate.
His name is Mark Single.
He doesn’t stand a chance. But he’s campaigning to make a point, by raising an alternative voice.
