  • RSU student union elections now over … The students have spoken

    Meow everyone. Yes, since my last article , I am happy to report that the Ryerson Student Union elections have ended for another year and the results clearly, overwhelmingly and unconditionally speak volumes about everything I  have been saying about the vast corruption of previous administrations. This years election showed very clearly that when a student union is run like a professional organization, with  professionally minded , dedicated students  who REALLY do believe in true democracy, change, positive change is not only possible, it has staying power .

     

    Lets quickly have a look at the winners of this years fair elections:

    This years winning was named ” IMPACT ” . The name was most fitting as this is the same student union executive slate that also won last years RSU elections, unseating and humiliating  the CFS supporting slate. Last year, the CFS supporting slate was caught bal lot stuffing  and had a real life cop killing advocate as part of the slate. Once the video of  ballot stuffing was made public midway through the first day of ” voting ” , the university placed uniformed Ryerson security officers at each and every polling station, as well, plain cloths election observers , also at each polling station, to ensure that there were no other incidents of ballot stuffing. It worked , clearly , because the pro CFS slate was decimated in the election last year, with the winning slate receiving  more than  DOUBLE the number of votes over the CFS opposition. The writing was on the wall, the CFS slate was out on their asses and the crying game began.

     

    Oh they complained and filed silly protests, claiming that the university had no business observing the elections. They claimed they were, for lack of a better term, oppressed . Awwwwe … booo hooo . If that slate would have come to me , I could have supplied them with the following form to fill out  ( many thanks to my good friend at http://www.genuinewitty.com  for creating this ) :

    The winning slate had its work cut out for them as they had years of damage to undo, and regain the trust and confidence of the student body. One of the first things they did to regain this trust was announce that from now on,  student elections would be done through ONLINE voting, meaning , there would be no more paper ballots , no more opportunities for ballot stuffing, no more  costly vote counters, in other words, a progressive, responsible , professional organization acting in a responsible , professional manner with student money .

     

    This years elections were marred by the CFS affiliated slate dirty tricks squad , comprised of outside organizations knowingly, willfully , interfering with a fair election. This was of course exactly what they , ( the CFS slate ) didn’t want , and would try and create false, inaccurate  and misleading posters to try and sway the student electorate. Here is what they were banking on as the means to sway students towards the CFS affiliated  slate :

    This poster as shown above was of course a blatant lie , because the RSU never fired the person in question. The person was laid off , along with one other person. Anyone with even half a brain would know the significant differences between getting fired, and getting laid off. Of course if one is siding with the CFS affiliated slate, the half brained scenario goes out the window because to support the CFS , one must be brainless to begin with. The student body saw through that pathetic attempt to manipulate votes. However, since this poster was created by CESAR , whos’ president is Denise Hammond,  they will know that she is one of the most manipulative weasel scum bags running a student organization. Here is the Dutches of Dirt  Denise Hammond doing what she does best  :

    The Ryerson Student Union is and was not the only student union who has a serious case of CFS infectious . York  university another very PRO CFS student union through the York Federation of Students is also suffering through the cancerous effects of the CFS . Here are some of the b ongoings in their election process over the years :

     

    ” …Due to the problematic history of the York Federation of Students (YFS), LIFT YU takes the integrity of the student union elections extremely seriously. The accumulated compromises make it impossible to recognize any outcome in the 2016 YFS Elections. This is not the only year issues have risen, as there have been allegations of holes being punched in the ballot boxes, lack of administration at the polling stations, double voting, alleged biases in the election process, and disqualifications on questionable grounds for the past ten years.

    Our concerns with the 2016 YFS Elections are as follows:
    – YFS CRO Alex Hunsberger sharing lines of contact information, his personal cell phone number, with Student Action members, that was not shared with other candidates running in the YFS Elections
    – CRO failure to follow proper protocol,outlined in the By-Laws, to have poll clerks and scrutineers sign a ballot box on the second day of voting period
    – The 90% reduction to 2016 YFS CRO Office hours compared to 2015 YFS CRO office hours
    – Promoting voter suppression by holding the 2016 YFS Election Voting Period a week before Reading Week (when there are many academic deadlines for students)
    – The dozens of anti-semitic comments directed to our team throughout the election process
    – Lack of interest in informing students about the debates due to minimal promotion done by the YFS Elections Committee, resulting in only one non-candidate student to attend the Keele Executive Debate
    – YFS CRO forbidding the recording of both executive debates despite the low attendance and knowing that the 2015 YFS Executive debates were allowed to be recorded

    The LIFT YU Team … “

    Are you seeing a pattern here ? At pattern of missing ballots , voting irregularities , CRO’s with questionable conduct …. yes, all part of the CFS way of doing things .

     

    This years RSO  elections were very important in that this years executive had the  insurmountable task of undoing the damage of many years of  false claims, financial destruction , incompetence and mismanagement by previous administrations. Last years win was a very important victory and if successful , as they were , the first year was to try ad undo, or at least begin the repair process of years of  willful mismanagement and incompetence . The second year, if they were to be successful could , in theory begin to show signs of light and significant changes …. but first, they have to win ……. and win they did . This years election was the first election in memory where a CFS affiliated slate LOST back to back elections. However, this proved one other, very important thing . It showed, very clearly , that given a fair , honest playing field , the students WANT a real student government that works for STUDENTS, not the other way around.  Could we see the end of the CFS in our school now ? I think that this is now more possible than ever , and very realistic. For those who really want to know just how corrupt the CFS really is, solidarity-paper is a superior document that outlines this in great detail. 

     

    In all of this , the currant President of the RSU stay classy, dignified  and professional …  even with a plethora threats made against her personally. She set the standard , by her actions as to what a real student leader should be. Thank you Andrea Bartlet for your leadership this year. You and you team have been a real class act , something we have not seen in a student government in all the years I have been here ( and longer ) .

    Now, allow me to introduce to y’ all  the new student government that will lead the Ryerson Student Union , putting STUDENTS FIRST :

  • Guess what time it is ? Yup, its Ryerson Student Union Election time again…. You KNOW what that means

    ******** UPDATE FOR MARCH 07  ********

    Today is the first official voting day for the RSU elections, and i n highly predictable fashion, the dirty tricks squad that supports the CFS has already shown up . Isnt it interesting that CESAR had a new Executive Director in Caitlin Smith  ( read below for more on her ) , under the direction of Denise Hammond  and for the first day of the elections, we already see the first series of LIES the CFS side puts out to sway voters to  their side. Problem is ,  Massa was NOT fired as this poster states  . She was LAID OFF . Fired and laid off are spelled and pronounced differently , but then, One cant really expect the CFS supporting slate to know the difference as they didn’t spend too much time in the lecture halls actually attending classes .    Like I stated below, the pro CFS slate is using a legitimate business decision  for THEIR agenda . The timing is, as I state below not an accident .

    12804077_10154666881367846_1076324073_n

    This is a violation of the election rules as posters that pertain to election in cannot cover in any way, the election posters of another slate, person or group. As well, posters must be a certain distance apart from opposing posters…. if memory is correct, they must be six or twelve inches apart

     

     

    ****************************************************************************************************************************************************************

     

     

     Meow everyone, yes, its that time of year again,  2016 student union election time at the Ryerson Student Union . So, what are we in for this to add the usual dram to this year election process . Well, lets have a look , first at what took place last year as seen here .  Pay attention to the video, where the slate connected to the Canadian Federation of Students was caught red handed CHEATING by BALLOT STUFFING  by your favorite undercoverkity. Of, they tried to deny it, tried to down play it, tried to deflect away from it, but in the end, they were caught, red handed, and yes, it cost them the election. Personally, I took / take great pride in  having played a small part in destroying their slate and watching them disappear, at least for a year.

     

    Oh, they tried to accuse me of hate crimes for shooting the video then posting it . One of our favorite malcontents , Pascale Diverlus even though she was smarter than I am  but thinking that she can call campus security to have me removed …. from my own school . OK Pascale, nice try but your utter stupidity shows through  every time you open your mouth and once again, you FAILED . Get used to hearing that word a lot .  Oh , don’t take it as a shock because clearly, you were meant to be a failure . Your black lives protest movement is a FAILURE, just like its leadership . ( that would be you and Rodney )

     

    Here is Pascale Diverlus from a recent RSU election poster

    So, what do we have in store for this years student union elections? Well, it appears that our favorite nut case , Pascale Diverlus has a new tactic to try … This year, she is playing the race card … oh I know,  how predictable , except that this year, she is NOT RUNNING. This year Twitty Diverlus is capitalizing on  the laying off of one her cronies from the student union , another CFS drone, Gilary Massa. Massa was laid off because her cronies spent so much student money of frivolous garbage that had NOTHING to do with students  that the only way to stay within the student union budget was to restructure the organization and save money were it can be found. Massa was noting more that the mouth piece for the CFS and her job was to make sure that CFS agendas wee followed and implemented . She was an overpaid seat warmer , nothing more.  Here is the first story regarding the case where Massa files a Human rights complain . This is what IS important about the case : ” … Massa’s claims aren’t about having a job, they’re political. … “   Pascale Diverlus couldn’t resist opening her clap trap she calls a mouth and playing the race card . Here are her words: ” … And think about what you as a white woman is doing to a black Muslim woman by ruining her position and saying it is reconstructing. … ”  I wonder how much help she had formulating these words, because she is not bright enough to operate a light switch , let alone, understand business operations. She continues : ” … I have been very emotional about the fact that a black Muslim woman’s job has been removed … ”  Hey, diverlus, what have you got to say about the other person who was also laid off, the white lady . Diverlus, let me blunt , direct and to the point. You’re a pathetic and laughable  hypocrite . You don’t care one bit about a lost job. ALL you want to do is to capitalize on  RACE BAITING  for YOUR personal agenda .  Diverlus, this may come as a shock to your two functioning brain cells , however, guess what, being dark skinned and muslim does not automatically mean you cant get laid off. I know this is a concept far above your intellect,  your ability  to understand ,  but some one has to tell you the truth .  One day, when you grow up and start living in the real world, even you,  may understand this . If, this still eludes you, consult any three year old , they will be able to explain  it to you using  little words.

     

    Here is Gilary Massa

    Now, why am I so hard on Diverlus ? Well, so far we have seen her play the obvious RACE card to her liking. But what is her stance of a woman getting threatened with death and sexual assault / She is SILENT , not a peep . You can see this for yourself here .  She says NOTHING , silence, not even a squeak . OK, squeak is above her abilities .

     

    Along with the pathetic racist  garbage by Pascale Diverlus  being used as a ploy to unseat the first, REAL,  LEGITIMATE student government at the Ryerson Student Union,  there are other items that are being used to try and discredit the currant administration. Another serious allegation is the loss of a HUGE amount of student money . Now this is not the first time student money of this quantity went missing . Several years ago, a safe was said to have been outright removed from the used book room which was also run by the Ryerson Student Union . The safe was rumored to contain close to $40,000.00.  Since the currant President may not be aware of that, I will with hold writing about the details of that until I speak with her , as there may be a connection .

     

    Lastly, also a matter of coincidence ( NOT ) , former RSU president and CFS supporter, CFS staff  member Caitlin Smith just happened to take on the new role of Executive Director at CESAR , the Continuing Education Students At Ryerson. Smith is a VERY close friend of the CESAR president Denise Hammond who just happens to be a close CFS ally. I know, I know, what a shocking surprise about the timing eh ? Smiths arrival is at a key point because some years ago, when the idea was first discussed about on-line voting, I over heard Smith say to someone around her that if it ever went online, she would be able to hack the system to change the votes as well, have her friends who were hackers do the same . Frankly, I don’t know if what I heard her say is  true, or if indeed she can do this, however her very convenient arrival at the most convenient time is no accident  and should be  met with concern, if for no other reason, than to the possibility of interfering with the election process.

    Caitlin Smith is no stranger when it comes to interfering with student union actions, especially when it would involve the CFS. In fact, here is a great example of just how far , quite literally , she went to interfere with an action of a student union.

     

     

    Interfering with student elections is nothing new to the CFS affiliated slate and members of the RSU and / or their supporters . A few years ago, at the University of Toronto, then President elect Toby Whitfield of the RSU  was allegedly caught red handed tearing down posters from the French Club at U of t , during, their student union elections. here is the video of him supporting these  allegations :

     

    The full story of his interference of the student union elections can be seen here .  Another article about those same elections shows a much more elaborate group of pro CFS idiots interfering with the elections.  ” … Harassment, intimidation, and race-baiting are among the complaints brought to the chief returning officer in the UTSU elections … “  Does this sound familiar ?  Of course it does because this is exactly what is happening right NOW with Pascale Diverlus and her mindless moronic minions.  From the link above, we clearly see a well rehearsed pattern of interference in the election process :

     

     

    Non-U of T campaigners

     

    : … Toby Whitfield, Ryerson Students’ Union VP finance and services and president-elect, is campaigning for Stronger Together for the second year in a row. In March 2009, Whitfield told the Eyeopener, a Ryerson student newspaper, that he was campaigning because he was friends with the incumbent slate. Darshika Selvasivam, VP campaigns and advocacy at the York Federation of Students, has also been spotted campaigning for Stronger Together. Change campaigners are all U of T students, according to Masse.

    Student union leaders from campuses that belong to the Canadian Federation of Students, an umbrella lobby group, have campaigned at each other’s campus elections. In 2008, Maclean’s reported that YFS president Hamid Osman had left Toronto during the York University strike to participate in a CFS-Ontario campaign to have U of O students join the federation. Also in 2008, York University student newspaper The Excalibur reported that Osman and two other YFS execs were seen campaigning in RSU elections for the Renew slate. In 2009, the CFS-Québec deputy chair-elect, Noah Stewart-Ornstein, was shown in a video tearing down seven campaign posters during elections at Concordia University. … “

     

    Rodney Diverlus was also caught on video interfering with the U of T elections in another. Here is that video :

     

     

    Here is the supporting article to the above video.

    Well, like last year, it is my fullest intention to get right into the faces of these pro CFS morons and totally and royally piss them off as much as i possibly can … within the law. So, where will my camera be ? Who will I catch trying to buy votes? Pascale, next time you see me and think that by counting to three, you will hasten my desire to move along, I  have news for you. I will have already taken your photograph for my archives on the radical nut cases . It will , however , be fun to see if you have learned to count to four though.
