QPIRG 2015 referendum question

The Tribune endorses a “Yes” vote for the QPIRG-McGill referendum question. QPIRG is a student-run organization focused on social and environmental justice, and in this referendum, it is asking for a fee levy that would increase its opt-outable fee from $3.75 to $5.00 per semester for undergraduate and graduate students. This increase, which QPIRG has stated is approximately equal to its 1988 fee indexed to inflation, would enable the organization to sustain its current efforts as well as expand on its research, outreach, and education programs. However, it is imperative that the organization continues to be accessible across campus and to promote its benefits and services to the student body.
