Fraternity link suspected in decision to oust Anishinaabe student VP at Ottawa university


An Anishinaabe student who was suddenly ousted as a student association vice-president of an Ottawa university following a narrow election win says a fraternity link between one of his political opponents and the chief electoral officer played a role in the decision.

Ashley Courchene, a third-year political science major from Sagkeeng First Nation in Manitoba, won the race for vice-president of student services for Carleton University’s Students’ Association (CUSA) by 21 votes last Thursday.

His victory lasted mere hours.
