Re: “NSPIRG faces funding cut

This is plainly an oped rather than a serious look at the subject. The "full disclosure" that the author has been involved with NSPIRG serves only to draw attention to his bias, rather than mitigate any ethical issue.

As a Dal student, for me the NSPIRG issue boils down to one of principle:

1) NSPIRG's campaigns against free trade, Canadian Forces involvement in Afghanistan, and Israel Apartheid week are all explicitly POLITICAL activities.

2) No Dal student should have to OPT-OUT of a political organization. If they believe in these causes, they can OPT-IN, just like with any other political organization.

NSPIRGers argue that if students were forced to opt-in, NSPIRG would lose all its money. Yes, it would lose all it's free money; it would have to raise funds from those who are actually interested in supporting these causes--of which I am not one.
