PGSS Students vote "YES" for CKUT Fee Levy Increase!!!

Between October 21st and October 27th, CKUT will be taking McGill graduate students to the polls and asking for their support in our fee levy increase question. Our organisation really needs the support so we are asking for the opt out-able student levy to be increased by 1.50$ bringing it from 3.75$ to 5.25$ per semester for full time student and from 1.88$ to 3.38$ per student per semester for part time students.

There are several reasons to vote yes, main one being that it is impossible for us to take the organisation into the future without your support

CKUT works hard year around to connect McGill student and other groups to larger Montreal communities,we are free from government and corporate control and need you to tell your own story!
