UWaterloo Graduate Student Association Statement on Student Choice Initiative Court Ruling

On November 21, 2019, the Student Choice initiative (SCI) was struck down in a Divisional Court of Ontario ruling.

However, we expect the Government of Ontario to seek an appeal – meaning that the SCI may yet return.
