Athletics has decided not to close the Aquatic Centre gym! They apologized for the process, and agreed to find other ways to deal with the (minor) issues raised like liability, class space, and old machines.

This is a victory that happened because the AMS and students at large worked together. The AMS reps couldn't have done it without a mobilized popular support, and the students wouldn't have had a voice without the focusing impact of the AMS reps.

It's the kind of symbiotic lobbying efforts that need to be common practice.

And, if this has proven anything, it's really not that hard to do. Plus it's fun when you win.
