SPECIAL REPORT 

IGNITE on Friday morning sent an email seen by The Avro Post to students that remained opted in and paid their Social Programming Fee with a code that allows recipients to buy Frosh tickets for 50 per cent off the normal price of $20, further confirming that the Student Choice Initiative is establishing new precedents for those enrolled in post-secondary education.

After a request for comment, the student union quickly confirmed that students who had already bought tickets to Frosh at full price and opt in will be reimbursed. Also, students that opt in and pay their fees ahead of the Sept. 16 will also receive an email with the discount code.

Frosh this year is a paint party being held Sept. 21 at Woodbine Racetrack. Party kits were offered for free for the first 1,000 students that signed up, on the condition that they opted into the Events and Opportunities Fee. Frosh is open to guests for the price of $30.

An analysis by The Post in late August on the party kits condition identified a precedent for future events, showing that IGNITE will naturally favour those that fund their services through exclusive offers. ■

Ambulance on campus for the 3rd time in 7 days

Police and ambulance services

Cruisers in front of the LRC.

An ambulance and three Toronto Police vehicles were on campus on Wednesday afternoon for around one hour, marking at least the third time within seven days that emergency services have been spotted on campus.

It did not appear the ambulance was used during the hour or longer that it was parked in front of the Learning Resource Commons at the front of North Campus.

Two cruisers were parked in front, a police SUV and multiple campus security vehicles were in and out of the area.

The ambulance and police SUV departed campus at 3:40 p.m. while the first cruiser departed soon after. The final cruiser departed after 4 p.m. and no details were immediately available.

An ambulance was in front of the Learning Resource Commons a week ago as a male patient was carried out on a stretcher. On Sunday night, an ambulance was spotted in front of Residence T Building.

The Avro Post has reached out for details from Humber College. ■

IGNITE Board to meet again in a hidden location

The student union has hidden exact locations since September.

IGNITE’s Board of Directors, made up of elected student representatives, will be meeting on Wednesday evening at the University of Guelph-Humber, according to a schedule posted earlier this year by the student union, but no exact location or time has been made public.

The Board meeting locations were removed by the student union in September after paid staff blocked a reporter from The Avro Post from entering that month’s gathering of directors, a meeting that later turned out to be of major significance.

The Avro Post attempted to find the meeting in October but was unsuccessful. According to the IGNITE bylaws, the directors have to hold a majority vote to kick a student from the meeting, including student journalists. They are also required to post the meetings publicly.

However, IGNITE has rules currently on its Governance webpage that instruct students, who are classified as members of the union, to reach out to the executive director to obtain access to the meetings, bending the rules of their own bylaws.

If the meeting is indeed held in the University of Guelph-Humber, the typical location for the Board to gather is the conference room found by the entrance doors to the university in the Atrium. ■
