Election debate postponed to Jan. 29

The Ryerson Students’ Union election debate scheduled for Tuesday was postponed because of a scheduling conflict with the chief returning officer.

The debate will now be held Wednesday, Jan. 29 from 12-4 p.m.

This year’s chief returning officer, York University grad student Zachary Smith, could not attend the event Tuesday.

“The date just had to be moved because I have to be there as part of my responsibility. So it was just a mistake in respect to putting it on the calendar,” Smith said.

Posters around campus notified students that the debate was to take place at Tecumseh Lounge in the student centre on Tuesday.

On Monday, the RSU announced on its Twitter account that the debate had been bumped to Wednesday. But around noon on Tuesday, there was no posted notice outside the lounge that the event was rescheduled.
