Petition to remove RSU president, restructure nears 1K

A petition to remove Ryerson Student Union’s president and restructure the organization was set to reach 1,000 signatures late on Tuesday, amid a political crisis that has seen three executives resign and one impeached and removed since the beginning of December.

The petition was started by engineering student R Chan in December. Chan writes that “students of Ryerson University have not received full financial transparency as promised”, putting the blame on President Vanessa Henry who he claims is not qualified to “lead the organization or manage a team”.

The Avro Post has reached out for comment from Henry and the Ryerson Student Union but no response has yet to be received. The petition has reached more signatures than the one for former president Ram Ganesh, who was at the centre of a dramatic affair after stealing funds from the RSU.

Third year physiology student Jennifer Obrian, one of the signatories of the petition, said “it’s clear she’s not qualified” when asked why she supported the resignation.
