University of Manitoba slate borrows branding, platform points from One Carleton

The name and some platform points of the winning slate in the University of Manitoba Students’ Union (UMSU) election earlier this month shared a resemblance to the winning slate of the recent Carleton University Students’ Association (CUSA) election. Similar to the “One Carleton” slate in the CUSA election, the “One UMSU” slate at the University of Manitoba (U of M) won every executive position in the UMSU election, all while sharing some of One Carleton’s branding and campaign promises.
