While there were several platform items shared among candidates at the University of Guelph-Humber IGNITE Election Forum, several stood out as particularly unique.

Maheen Nazim, candidate for vice president of Guelph-Humber, said that she would like to push for the creation of an app if she is elected.

The third year Justice Studies Program student said that a mobile application would unify notifications and improve how people on campus get information.

Fellow VP candidate Harry Carlisle proposed the creation of a digital map for the first floor of Guelph-Humber in an effort to improve accessibility and brought up his plan to add a lounge in the Atrium.

Carlisle has agreed to an interview with the Post for Friday where he will be asked more about his plans in that regard.

The current IGNITE staffer also spoke on his plan to bring in solar panels that would assist in covering electricity costs for computer labs, citing research.

Board of Directors candidate Kevin Seiry, who has refused to respond to interview questions from the Post, said he would direct more money into the digital services of IGNITE, but not specify beyond that.

Those are the major digital and physical changes candidates proposed on Thursday.
