Two candidates vying for the IGNITE presidency worked to define their vision in front of hundreds of students watching a live stream or in person at both Humber College North and Lakeshore Campuses on Wednesday.

Incumbent President Monica Khosla of North and her challenger Margarita Bader of Lakeshore are going head-to-head, and while some of their responses to questions were similar, there was differences in how they answered questions from students at the end.

Khosla is looking to keep her position because her “work is not done” she told the approximately 10 gathered students in the Student Centre — she wants to continue her work with IGNITE’s “strategic plan” and her work with improving accessibility.

Bader dove into a detailed description of her campaign items off the bat — including new spaces for students, lowering textbook prices, digitizing campus and connecting health and wellness to outside campus with mobile carts offering food.

Bader went into all the details of her platform and ambitions as president in an interview with The Avro Post published on Wednesday morning, and Khosla responded with her own plans of action.
