Damanpreet Singh and Exina Vinu is one of the slates running for the posts of President and Executive Vice President (respectively) in the Cape Breton University (CBU) Students’ Union general elections 2022-23.


Here are some words from the candidates themselves.

Damanpreet Singh

"Hello Capers,

My name is Damanpreet Singh, standing for the post of President of CBU Students Union. I originally belong to India. I am a 3rd semester student at CBU from Post Baccalaureate Diploma in Supply Chain Management. I came to Canada in May 2021. In my free time, I love listening to music and consider helping others as my first priority. I realized that I’ve been doing that from a long time, even without any official position, so if I get to this position I could do it even better this is what inspired me why I am running in this election. My major focus is on accommodation, jobs and on study. So I am planning to get a helpline number for the students which may answer their questions regarding jobs, study and accommodation."

Exina Vinu


"I am Exina Vinu. I am currently enrolled in third semester of Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Business Management. I am from India. I came to Sydney in the month of April 2021. Moving to Canada and leaving my family behind in India was a big challenge for me. When I first got here, I had a lot of challenges, but I somehow managed to overcome it. I have seen a lot of my friends struggling to get a job here. They could only drop in few resumes in a single day due to the poor public transport."


The Team's Vision


"If our slate is elected, we promise to address this issue, we wish to form a team to assist students in finding jobs. Students will be able to drop off their resumes in one location at the university, and we will assist them in connecting with the employers."
