BUSAC redefines recording laws

 During last BUSAC meeting of 2013, councillor Andrew Kemble moved to ban the use of video recording devices during meetings, excluding presentations. The motion posted 7-5-17, which means 7 councillors were in favour, five were opposed and 17 voted for an abstention, which is another way of declining to vote. Much debate was had in the board room and many feel like this decision will heavily impact BUSAC’s role to Brock University over the upcoming year. For an editorial, see page 11 and the segment provided by BrockTv at brocktv.ca.
