The Canadian Federation of Students British Columbia (CFS-BC) lost their appeal to overturn a decision from their B.C. Supreme Court case against the Kwantlen Student Association dating back to January 2010.
The judgment states that the KSA has a protected right to choose their own representative on the CFS-BC’s Board of Directors.
The three appeals court justices gave a unanimous decision, up-holding the original ruling.
On Feb. 3, the B.C. Court of Appeal ordered CFS-BC to pay the KSA’s court fees, which have not yet to been totaled.
According to Nathan Griffiths, the KSA’s Media Adviser, the KSA was awarded $15,000 from last year’s B.C. Supreme Court decision.
The court will release the reasons for judgment at a later time.
