Please circulate widely.

Please NOTE: Due to an oversight on SAC's part, the UTERN referendum will
not be held in conjuction with the SAC Elections. SAC has apologized for the
inconvenience and has guaranteed that students will have the opportunity to
vote on ROSI from Monday, March 31st to Friday, April 04. A reminder to vote
will be sent out during the campaign and voting periods.

The University of Toronto Environmental Resource Network (UTERN), an
umbrella organization for student organizations,  academic programs and U of
T facilities, has proposed a 50-cent, fully refundable, non-academic fee.
Despite an already thriving environmental community, few groups have the
funding to undertake large-scale projects to improve the quality of
environment on campus. The Environmental Levy will change all that. The
proposed Environmental Levy will go towards funding campus greening
initiatives on all three U of T campuses. Possible projects include
ecological restoration, green energy and energy-efficiency projects,
composting programs, community gardens, green rooftops, and more. UTERN
would act as a grant-giving body, evaluating project proposals and ensuring
that funds are allocated to the projects that students want.

Finally, here is a levy that ensures no one is excluded. After all, the
environment is something we all share. We all traverse the earth, breathe
the air, suffer from the smog, and experience the environment in a million
indescribable ways every single day.

VOTE IN SUPPORT OF THE UTERN ENVIRONMENTAL LEVY - IT'S SMALL CHANGE FOR A
BIG CHANGE!
