ST. CATHARINES, ON, Nov. 28 /CNW/ - Brock University Students' Union
(BUSU) is working hard to ensure that present as well as future students are
able to enjoy an affordable post-secondary education. The need for
accessibility to the post-secondary education system is paramount in Canada so
that the vital resource of an educated population can be at the forefront of a
knowledge based economy.
"BUSU lobbies with the Canadian Alliance of Students Associations (CASA)
because there is a inherent need for the federal government to continue its
support of the post-secondary education system which in turn will ensure a
prosperous future for Canada," stated James O'Brien President of Brock
University Students' Union.
CASA held its annual Lobby Conference in the Nation's Capital from
November 12th-16th. This year's conference was a great success with delegates
meeting with over 170 Member's of Parliament (MP's) and other important
political staff members.
"'Lobby Con' was a very effective effort, it was a time for student
leaders from across the country to address the needs of their constituents and
to work towards ensuring that all individuals are able to access the
post-secondary education system. With this accessibility students will be able
to position themselves and Canada in the emerging knowledge based economy,"
Established in 1971, the Brock University Students' Union is a
not-for-profit student organization, representing 17,000 students.
