Hope y'all made it through exam season and are now enjoying the fantastic weather that mother nature's providing us this weekend.
So, as many of you already know, our very own Joyce Lee is running for the London Youth Advisory Council in Ward 6. She needs our support to ensure that she runs over the competition and emerges victorious! (This is exciting, it's like helping to train Rocky for his big fight.)
Elections run between May 3rd and May 9th, but we've been allowed to collect votes via this Google Form since early April - and we can continue to do so today and into the election period.
Voting is SUPER easy! All you need is your name, email, address, and postal code (and you can just say Western University & N6A 3K7 for the last two - instructions are available on the form). So, let's all commit to putting our vote in for Joyce by tomorrow.
But we can't just stop there! Let's reach out to all our friends at Western and get them to vote as well, to make sure we get Joyce all the votes she needs. If we can each get 10 of our friends to vote, we'll kill it.
Just remember, you need to live in London's Ward 6, or attend Western University to be eligible to vote - so unfortunately, friends/family from outside the area don't qualify.

uwoewb EWB is concerned about the information presented in today's article from the Ottawa Citizen and what this means for Canada's role in the post-2015 development agenda.
The decline in the Government of Canada's contribution to ODA points to a troubling trend. This, despite 2015 polling data that shows the majority of Canadians not only believe it's important to improve health, education and economic opportunity for the world's poorest people, but that doing so is our moral obligation as Canadians.
EWB would like to see Canada reverse this trend and increase our investment in global poverty reduction with an eye towards the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals.
