Elevate’s election platform seeks 24-hour student study spaces, more health and wellness accommodation and a higher level of transparency within the RSU according to its website.

The Spark campaign says it wants more student jobs, better transit and more student services.

A third slate, Ohana, has announced its participation online via Facebook and Twitter. Neal Muthreja, current VP operations, will oppose Singh. He’s also a student in TRSM. 

According to Muthreja’s Facebook profile, Ohana will focus on fiscal responsibility, improved communication, transportation and mental health initiatives.

The fourth slate, Rhino Party, also has a Facebook Profile, and is campaigning for more windows, no more Drake, lower salaries and therapy dogs.
