Brock Lobbies for Students Future

    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,"
explained O'Brien.

    Established in 1971, the Brock University Students' Union is a
not-for-profit student organization, representing 17,000 students.
