If you're non-partisan, why does this website criticize the BC Liberal government?
It is every advocacy organization's job to critique how the government is measuring up to the political priorities of its membership.
The member students' unions of the CFS-BC vote regularly on the organization's political priorities. As government policy over the last eight years has caused tuition fees and student debt to skyrocket, while per-student funding has declined, members have identified work to reduce student debt and adequately fund our universities and colleges as the main priority of their provincial student organization.
