Campus Inquisition

In light of the recent selection of the leader of the Conservative Party of Canada and the release of the federal budget, The Gazette, lacking any taste, decided to make a daring quest into the University Community Centre and ask the tough questions about what is the real issue right now in Canadian politics, be it elections, budgets or self-admitted ignorance.

“I’m really not interested in it. I don’t really have a reason. I don’t find the topics interesting. Maybe if there was more interesting issues, like tuition rates and not things that are so grown-up.”
Antonella Giancarlo
media, information and technoculture II
—on why she knows nothing about politics

“I think they should wait for a little while, give people a little while to put more faith in the Liberals. I think Paul Martin has done a good job.”
Jason van Wyngaarden
microbiology and immunology IV
—on his recommended strategy for an election

“The only thing about the budget is that they’re turning into a conservative budget — and if you’re going to run a conservative budget than you let the Conservative Party run the budget.”
Anthony Kim
political science III
—on the budget and his blue blood

“I’m pretty left, and I was really sad that Ralph Nader was such an amazing candidate and he took away votes from [Al] Gore, so this new party could be doing the same thing.”
Jennifer Schweizer
music III
—discussing her American roots and a possible Liberal/Conservative problem
