Kristina Kabdullina started this petition to SFU students (Simon Fraset University)

As SFU students, each one of us is currently contributing $2.5 per term to the 'Student Refugee Program' that is under the World University Services Canada (WUSC) SFU branch.
Through our contributions, WUSC SFU is able to sponsor 6 refugees every year to cover the costs of tuition, living, and other expenses.
However, with inflation having increased 8 folds since 2012, the $2.5 levy deems insufficient to sustain the refugee program at this level. Therefore, we ask that you support our referendum to increase the student levy per term to $5.
The referendum will be running along with the SFSS elections and will be available through your SFU Mail from 17 March to 19 March, 2020.
