Re: “NSPIRG faces funding cut

NSPIRG is hardly facing an "all or nothing" fight. At present, there are exactly two items on the table:
First: A motion at the Dalhousie Student Union's AGM that asks for NSPIRG's funding to be held in trust, and for them to stop paying non-Dal staff. This would amount to a temporary shutdown of NSPIRG's funding. The motion is quite explicit on that point. Temporary.

Second: A movement to have a new referendum on NSPIRG's funding. If it passes, NSPIRG can go back to doing what it does best. If not, NSPIRG's mandate has run out. Either way, the people have had their say.

NSPIRG is not _entitled_ to its funding, and its been 20 years since it was reviewed. That's a long time. If NSPIRG wants Dal students to foot the bill, at the very least it needs to be accountable to Dal students.

Although Cicero won't go so far as to criticize the coast for this article, I will. Although the text of the article itself maintains some semblance of non-bias, the photo captions and headlines did a really good job of making the stop NSPIRG moment seem like a conservative plot. I voted for the NDP in the last two elections. I am not a conservative, and I do want to see NSPIRG's funding revisited. It's my money they're spending, and I deserve a say in how it's spent.
