Despite being able to access the IGNITE election results news conference last year, the student union has blocked student press access to the 2019 event unless they confirm an invitation sent earlier this week, The Avro Post learned on Thursday.

An email went out from IGNITE on Monday to addresses associated with on-campus media, including Humber Et Cetera and Humber News, that recipients are instructed to confirm to if they require access to the results event.

The Avro Post did not receive an email from IGNITE, and thus will not be able to have access to the election results news conference, according to the rules set forward in the RSVP email.

“You will be one of the first to break the new on who will be leading and representing the student body throughout the next academic year,” Communications Coordinator Peter Seney wrote in the email.

“In order to confirm your attendance at the press conference, you must respond to this invite.”
