OMG: Why is everyone freaking out about the feds fee increase? It goes back to us in one way or another. They aren't increasing the prices just for shits.

  1. This comment drips with stupidity... Thankfully I have graduated from this place and no longer need to have FEDs taking my money to wank off...

    1. So have you actually read the breakdown of the fee increase?

      If you did you would see that it all goes to:
      - clubs and services
      - IT (which are terribly underfunded)
      - advocacy
      - elections
      - marketing (which it really shouldn't because they're laughably incompetent)

  3. Okay fine, they're spending my money on things for me. That's great. Except THEY'RE SPENDING IT ON SHIT I DON'T WANT AND I DON'T EVEN GET TO DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT I GIVE IT TO THEM.

  4. As far as I'm aware we got giant useless iPad maps (for building with a 24 hour service desk) yet the girls washroom in the same building still doesn't have a door.

    Their priorities are all messed up and certainly NOT focused on the school.

    1. Speaking as a girl myself, why does it matter if the girl's washroom has a door on it or not? There's stalls with doors inside, and you have to go around a corner before you can even see them.

    2. All the maintenance things related to the SLC are controlled by the university and Plant Operations and they take soooo looooong. That's also why the roof has also been leaking 5ever.

      And I'm not sure if the washrooms were ever meant to have any doors...

    3. 4.b: is 5ever longer than 4ever?

    4. 4a the overall girl's washroom is also in a pretty terrible state, honestly...

  5. Because I don't use any of their services. I don't take the bus, I never step inside the SLC, I don't use their health benefits. I don't care about clubs. Why should I throw away my money??

    1. While I don't agree with the fee increase, you comment is just wrong. Adults pay taxes to fund schools and public transportation even if they don't have kids or use public transportation. Just because you don't use those services doesn't mean you don't have to pay the fees. Now, it's a different problem how your fee is budgeted.

  6. I think Feds fee should increase by at least 40%. We are not funding them enough to support us, which is why they don't have too much effect on the student body. INCREASE THE FEE!!!

  7. I've been here for 7 years (undergrad then grad student) and Feds has done JACK SHIT the entire time. I would honestly forget they existed if it weren't for those godawful posters going up every year and all their self-important bullshit. Get over yourselves. Not even a future employer is going to give a fuck that you were on a glorified school council.

  8. Ever walked on the new path between DC and MC? Yes. Then fuck you. Feds has done something for you. If you don't think Feds or any of it's groups are worth anything, then don't walk on the path. Don't use a gender neutral washroom. Don't get hurt at an event on campus. Don't faint during exams. Don't attend any cultural event on campus. Don't get involved in a club. Don't take any buses. Don't donate your leftover non-perishables at the end of term. Don't walk through the SLC. Don't be friends with anyone who may have been supported emotionally or mentally by any of the services. Don't use the free protection provided for you to fuck... Fucking trolls. Don't mistake the fact that 20 people hate feds and post it online for everyone hating Feds. Indifference doesn't mean the same thing. Sure, Feds could do more, be more relevant, get better ideas.. but these are students.. just like you and me.. UW provides opportunities to succeed and fail whether it is running student government or finishing an essay. Take a look back through the Imprint Archives.. there will always be the same 20 people angry about whatever Feds does. It's been happening since the 70's.

    2. You fuck monkey 8a, that shit is provided for free because of the advocacy groups do to get them available to you.. Feds doesn't pay for that shit. it's donated. But it wouldn't be donated if someone doesn't ask for them.. on behalf of students.. They provide a place for it and for you to obtain it for free.

  9. I think the problem is everyone assuming that without FEDs we'd still have all the same things we're used to having. U of T students, York students, McGill students all pay for their public transportation I'm pretty sure, as do many others. I'm talking 300+ per year, way more than we do. The same goes for a lot of other things. Everyone assumes that nothing would change if FEDs didn't exist but that's just not true.

    Besides, if you never ride the bus, never go to the SLC, never participate, etc then what the hell are you doing at university :P You're not the average student and of course FEDs doesn't consider you when they try and make things better for most people.
