The AMS is endorsing a yes vote for most of the 2016 referendum questions currently open to students. Others have been more critical. We'll break down what each question means, and how we'll be voting.

We're not arguing that UBC should be writing about men’s team’s new uniforms — they should be focusing on the near-superhuman achievements of all their athletes — but they definitely shouldn't be only writing about the women’s teams.
