“To put it simply, student issues aren’t being addressed by the NDP or Liberals because we don’t vote, and we don’t vote because we’re concentrated in safe ridings all around Vancouver. If we want our fair share like the rest of the province, we need proportional representation.“
"In an AMA on Reddit, the members of Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights (SPHR) attempted to answer questions from UBC students on what the BDS referendum will look like, as well as their views on the Israel-Palestine situation."
Your example of UBC seeking charges against a student who burned a pride flag is irrelevant in this case. They were charged with “mischief causing damage of property with a value of under five thousand dollars” — not a hate crime.
