IGNITE stays neutral for now on SCI ruling

IGNITE responded to the court ruling that found the Student Choice Initiative “unlawful” on Friday afternoon, declaring neutrality until there is a formal response from the provincial government.

The Ontario Divisional Court ruled on Thursday that the initiative, known as the SCI, was an overreach by Premier Doug Ford and his Progressive Conservatives.

The SCI established some ancillary fees “non-essential” and allowed students to opt out of funding parts of student unions, campus publications and other organizations.

“IGNITE will not speculate on the ramifications of this announcement as we await a response from the provincial government,” President Monica Khosla said in a statement released by IGNITE.

Statement released by IGNITE Friday.
