  5. Letter of protest to Canadian Blood Services

    • Pride UBC was approached by Tim Chu to write a letter in protest of the ban against any man who has had sex with another man since 1977 from donating blood or organs. This was sparked by a recent lawsuit in which a gay man, sued for donating blood despite having an STI, countersued CBS for violating the Charter of Rights. CBS reaffirmed that they have the right to deny donation, because they are a non-government organization.

  6. Event volunteer policy

    • Social coordinators should keep track of volunteers on an hourly basis to make sure attendance and performance is optimal. This is also important when giving free cover and drinks to volunteers who may not have done their full shifts

      • 10 approved, 0 opposed, 0 abstained
