There is NOTHING on our official department website (gpe.concordia.ca) about the strike and no comments section.
The great thing about public blogs is that you can comment on posts, everyone with internet can access them (ie you don’t need to belong to Facebook or to a specific Facebook group), and what you write will be available to everyone instantly.
I invite everyone to comment under the day’s “Class Updates” and contribute to maintaining a centralized and accurate account of what takes place in our department! Urbs classes will be added as soon as possible.
The efficiency of crowdsourcing shall prevail!
Follow the jump for WEDNESDAY MARCH 14 Class Updates…

GEOG 362 Statistical Methods (Prof. Ricardo Duenez)
GEOG 204 Global Environmental Issues (Prof. John Buskard)
Once again, striking students asked to address the topic of the strike with the class (few if any Geography students).
