Good news from UVic - military ban reversed

Yesterday, SDA reported that radical anti-war students at the University of Victoria had influenced the Student Society board to ban the military from the Student Union Building.

It took my local newspaper another day to catch up on the story (also reported here.)

The good news, again reported by SDA, is that the SS decision was reversed today pending the outcome of a student vote later in the year.

Graham Noyes, a third year UVic Poli-sci/History student (and SDA reader), deserves kudos for his role in getting the reversal and the reporting. He and fellow students who organized the protest against SS board ruling give some cause for optimism that everything hasn’t yet gone completely to hell in a handbasket on university campuses.

And chalk up another one for the blogosphere over the MSM.
