The University Students' Council presidential elections race took an interesting twist on this day in 1986 when candidate Jason Marks, an engineering student, was almost assassinated at the University Community Centre forum.

The attempt was actually staged by Marks and his faculty of engineering buddies as an attention grabber, which was another in a long series of not-so-serious activities by the candidate.

The main issues of the election were residence concerns, particularly the change of Medway Hall to a co-ed residence.
