Hot Air explores some of the more interesting, less formal things said at University Students' Council meetings. Here are a few tidbits overheard at last night's meeting...



"If you think of something just say it, nobody is going to laugh [followed by laughter]."

– Rory Capern, speaker for the USC, referring to council's scrutiny of the minutes.



"If someone gave me $1,000 to say thank you I would be pretty happy."

– Joe Hammill, USC councillor, referring to increasing the honoraria for next year's

legal affairs officer.



"I do agree, it should not be retrospective."

– Student senator and USC councillor Allison Norris attempting to make an amendment to one of the motions .



"Is this a real point of order or a false point of order? Be careful now, we're sensitive to it."

Capern, referring to some councillors confusion of the proper use of the term.



"Because I don't understand it and I have a feeling if I don't understand it..."

– undergraduate student representative on the Board of Governors, Michael Rubinoff, on why he was requesting a clarification.



"Motion carries, no wait, the motion does not carry."

Capern, referring the failure of a motion to table the USC policy on the dispersement of the honoraria of the legal affairs officer.



"I don't want to tread on your other motion, I can wait."

Rubinoff, stating his objections to the first motion affecting the legal affairs officer.
