After hearing about the stadium cancellation, over 70 student athletes attended the SFSS board meeting to express their frustration. A letter from Student Athlete Advisory Committee president Olivia Aguiar was read by spokesperson for the group and football player Ante Litre. The letter criticized what Aguiar called the SFSS’s lack of transparency and information given to the SFU Athletics students leading up to their decision to cancel the project.
