Cafe Prices Intolerable

Cafe Prices Intolerable

Dear Sir,

I am writing to express my concern as regards the recent increase in food prices in the ground floor cafeteria. I am perhaps labouring under a misconception when I say that it was my impression that the cafeteria was subsidized out of Student Association funds. If the cafeteria is subsidized I would like to know the reasons behind these increases which bring prices up to the level of those charged downtown. It is about time the SRC adopted a more responsible Outlook and provided for the needs of the students instead of wasting funds on causes sponsored by the elitist minority in power. Students, supposedly short of finance, do not pay ISO a year to see it squandered on donations and handouts to, in the main, useless causes. Improve the conditions for those within the university or refund our money!

Yours faithfully,

S.P. Mark.
