This weekend was the National Debating Championships, where the University of Alberta was amazingly well represented.
Kathleen Elhatton-Lake and Ian Burch made it to quarter-finals, and for the first time in eight years, we had a Western team, Iain Ireland and Robert Lees-Miller, from our very own University of Alberta make it to finals. Robert Lees-Miller was third place speaker, Ian Burch was seventh place speaker, Kathleen Elhatton-Lake was ninth place speaker, and Iain Ireland was thirteenth place speaker. Congratulations!
Additionally, our president, Ashvin Singh, has been elected for CUSID president for the upcoming year. Kathleen Elhatton-Lake has also been elected to be the upcoming CUSID treasurer. Congratulations to you both!
