There’s some major drama brewing at U of T this week, as I’ve stumbled upon a letter from a former candidate to her slate. This candidate was running for VP External in the ‘Team Renew’ slate, and dropped out after claiming she was basically a puppet. Thoughts friends? What if this happened at Western?
Here are the candidates running to replace Erin Uberig as the University Students’ Council’s Vice President Student Events.

Hey, I just joined this, and this is crazy, but Jess Chambers is on Devoted … So read me maybe?
My name is Jess Chambers, I’m in fourth year Political Science and VP Communications of the Social Science Students’ Council (Stephen Yu was my predecessor!) Since I’m slowly becoming irrelevant I’ve decided to join in on the VP fun! Talk to you all soon
Here are the results you’ve all been waiting for!
Congratulations to Team Whelan! Pat, Sam, and Amir are your first elected USC Executive slate!
Everyone else, you did amazingly, and thank you for being really dedicated and wanting to give students the opportunity to vote for a variety of individuals. We here at deVOTEd are extremely proud of everyone who ran because you are all really brave individuals. Don’t forget that win or lose, you’re still all wonderful and phenomenal people. Winning or losing an election doesn’t define YOU, you’re still the person who came into this race, winning a race just defines what students want. Maybe students don’t want you as president now, but you have no idea what lies ahead! So just keep your head held high, and go forth and do great things in life. There’s an entire world out there waiting for all of you to conquer it.
8059 Votes Cast in total!
Thank you to everyone who cast a vote and made their opinion heard!
Here are the results you’ve been waiting for….. (except USC President, VP Internal, and VP External)
Every year students wonder to themselves, if there was the ultimate candidate, what would they look like? What colour would their hair be? How tall would they be? What kind of smile would they have? Well luckily for you, we have managed to find the ultimate candidate. Or well candidates…Why have one when you have can multiple? Because it’s that time of year, the time where we bring together the wonderful qualities that each candidate brings and merge them together.
Resident writer, Kenjamin Nakanishi, would have normally done this article, it was his pièce de résistance last year but unfortunately he is currently off traveling the world, representing Canada proudly with Canada World Youth in Indonesia. We wish him the best and safe travels! Back to the ultimate candidate. What do they look like? Well it’s time to find out. Drum roll please.
We’re really hoping all of you know that vote day is just around the corner, and campaigning is nearly at an end. We know that between exams, assignments, and essays, you probably haven’t had that much time to read the Platforms of each Presidential slate, or maybe you just weren’t sure where to find all the information you need.
Well deVOTEd is here for exactly that purpose. To help you find everything you need.
Here are all the important links to check out:
Usually there are a lot of candidates who run for one position, or there are a few. When not enough people run, or just enough run, the positions become acclaimed! Meaning, that you don’t get to vote for these people. You just have to live with them.
Anyways, no, you don’t have to vote for them, but it doesn’t hurt to get to know them!
Check out your acclaimed FIMS, Arts and Humanities, and Health Science Councillors, along with your Health Science, Nursing, and Kin Faculty Council Presidents after the jump!
