Youth Town Hall Taking Place in the SLC

On Thursday, September 29th from 1:00pm – 4:00pm they say we’re apathetic: a youth town hall to fix the voting system will take place in the southwest corner of the 6th floor in the SLC.

Join a Canada-wide discussion on federal electoral reform at this student focused event or help us make our guests feel welcome by continuing to use the space as you normally would.

This event is part of a series of roundtable discussions happening across Canada focussed on ensuring the voices of young people make it directly to Prime Minister Trudeau and the committee studying voter reform. It is hosted collaboratively by Ryerson Students Union, the University of Toronto Students Union and Leadnow.

The SLC’s popularity has created a unique, yet challenging opportunity for us. On September 29th there are two federal government events taking place in the SLC. With so much going on and not enough event spaces, a special exception is being made to bring this important student-led reform event to the 6th floor. This allows for all other student-led activities in the SLC to take place as originally programmed.

It is exciting to see Ryerson partnering with government officials for important events like this one. We invite you to show them what makes the SLC and Ryerson special by either participating in the event or using the space as you normally would.
