Loaded Ladle faces DSU ultimatum
The Loaded Ladle has been treading on eggshells since it received a formal ultimatum from the DSU Oct. 5. The subsequent actions of the Loaded Ladle will determine whether they can continue to exist and serve food as a student society.

“Once the [Loaded Ladle] has exhibited that they can operate within the rules for a period of time, the Society Review Committee will re-consider the ratification of your group in January.” The ultimatum means they will be unable to serve meals or book spaces and will not be reimbursed for the expenses they have already incurred as a society.

The Loaded Ladle was promised a $32,000 start-up budget from the levy that students voted in last year; however, the DSU is currently withholding the levy until the society is ratified.

Other Loaded Ladle staff members, such as the outreach coordinator and the food serving coordinator, who are non-volunteers, have received no wages except for the donations from students collected at food servings, literally “nickels and dimes” according to Aaron Beale, a Loaded Ladle board member.

In the letter from the DSU, Saulnier wrote, “The DSU is very concerned with the clearly established pattern of a disregard for policy, regulations, and event booking procedures that the Loaded Ladle has displayed.” For the last two weeks, the Loaded Ladle has been running bake sales as an alternative to serving cooked food. However, the DSU told the Loaded Ladle last week that they are no longer allowed to hold any events under the Loaded Ladle name until  the society is ratified.
