New SFU President & "The Innocent Traveller"

As you may have heard, SFU has announced that former NDP politician Andrew Petter is the incoming University President. We might all offer him our sincere best wishes for a successful premiership.

Please watch this short clip online at the SFUNews Channel in which "Incoming Simon Fraser University president Andrew Petter reflects on what makes SFU deserving of its title as Canadas top comprehensive university."
