Dear Space Concordia Supporters,

We have been receiving your inquiries about our status in the CSU Elections, as many have noticed our absence on the ballot. It is with great sadness that we must inform you that we will not be on this upcoming rendition of the 2021 General Elections.

After attending many meetings, collecting the signatures and prepping our business plan. On Thursday, the 11th of March, we attended over 2 hours of meetings with their council to give an explanation of our operations, worth to the student body, budget and more. After receiving a green light to begin campaigning at the end of that meeting, we were sent an email at 12:09 am, the 12th that we will not be on the ballot.

The email read that due to an interpretation of the Concordia Student Union By-Laws, it has been found that we and the Mindful Project were out of compliance with 9.6.1 which goes as follows:

The procedure set out in paragraphs a) to e) of Section 9.4 shall apply mutatis mutandis to referenda. Referenda may also be called by a petition of at least five hundred (500) members presented to the Chairperson of the Council of Representatives a minimum of five (5) days before the announcement of the Poll.


At the conclusion of the latest meeting on March 15th, the council closed the meeting stating that the By-Laws need to be interpreted by their legal counsel.
As we wait for the interpretation to be released in April, we will continue to work to make sure that Space Concordia is heard and considered. In the meantime, please keep an eye on our social media as the situation is evolving quite rapidly and we may count on your help at any time.

Until then, ad Astra!
