The SFSS situation has been a landmark moment in Canadian Student Politics. I say this because the Internet has played a key role in its development and students at the grassroots level have been able to use their blogs to have their voices heard.
The following posts have appeared on blogs since the impeachment (most recent first):
- Jenn – Genevieve’s space: Still frustrated
- SFSS Democracy Now! – SFU Prez: We Must Respect the SGM – Simon Fraser University recoginizes the SGM has the legimate voice of the students of SFU.
- The Barque: Reposte and resignations
- fjoser: Your SFU democracy crisis update
- Whatever – School insanity, D&D, Jesus, student politics
- Geof – a whole minute: Impeachment
- saviol’s Xanga Site – Democracy at work @ SFU
- fjoser: Way to impeach, SFU.Now, was it effective?

Note that this is the full width of the page. It is another show of how the internet has changed student politics. In this case, a journalist in Ontario was able to find a picture to illustrate a story that a student at Simon Fraser had taken.
