Revert dispute with local cafe and allow local university students affordable food options

This petition had 1,733 supporters

The Great Northern Way Trust lead by Morgan Sturdy & Catherine Warren is denying the students and faculties of Emily Carr University of Art and Design and Center for Digital Media access to affordable food options. The trust is force closing the local cafe Momento, essentially eliminating competition for the corporate cafe Loafe, which was given exclusive access to strategic locations over campus including directly in the cafeteria. Momento Coffee House on the other hand, was denied access to any commercial signage consecutively for 4 years by the trust. As a result, students and faculties were unaware of a cheaper alternative next to the campus and are paying 2-3 times the amount of money at Loafe that they would have paid otherwise at Momento Coffee House for food portions insufficient of their daily caloric intake. This petition serves as a protest to the force closure of Momento Coffee House by the Great Northern Way Trust, and the corporate greed from an organization that advertises themselves as a sponsor and promoter of local artists.
