I'm Jake, 

A third-year student studying international relations, public policy, and history. I’m running to be your next UTSU President so I can deliver a ‘New Deal’ for students. That means investing in services that benefit you every day; improving campus life by increasing supports to clubs and students; pressuring the university for fairer academic practices and to truly become a climate leader; and engaging with various levels of government to deliver affordable student housing, a pedestrianized St.George, and cheaper transit. I want everybody to thrive during their time at UofT, these are just some of my ideas to make that happen. In addition, I want to hear from you! Please elect me so I can lead a UTSU that improves your day-to-day and delivers the changes you want to see.

Vote Jake Barton for a New Deal for students.

I wish to acknowledge the land on which UofT operates and that I call home. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and the Mississaugas of the Credit. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and I am grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.*

*This land acknowledgement is a modified version of the University's land acknowledgement.
