150318 Rally for Louis Riel_POSTER
On Saturday March 7th SFU delivered notices to students and families living in the 209 unit Louis Riel House Residence that in August the building will be torn down. This is SFU’s only family residence and those in Louis Riel House count on the community and the more-affordable rents there to continue their studies and keep their families together.This Wednesday March 18th, residents are calling for this rally to demand SFU:

1) Re-house Louis Riel students & families on SFU campus at the same rents they counted on to finish their degrees

2) Replace Louis Riel Housing with low-income affordable, disability accessible, family housing for future students

The full declaration has been endorsed by the SFU Graduate Students Society and the Simon Fraser Student Society, and more and more people in the broad SFU community, which includes everyone affected by the high costs of public education and housing in the Vancouver area.Read and sign the residents’ full declaration here:
