A Jan. 25, 2019 CBC article is entitled: “Ryerson Students’ Union under pressure to explain ‘baffling’ $250K credit card bill: Credit card statement includes purchases at the LCBO, a shisha lounge and a credit risk company.”
It will be of interest to follow how the story, which demonstrates the value of following the evidence, unfolds.
As a former student journalist and editor, and now as a blogger, I am highly impressed with the work of The Eyeopener staff.
The opening paragraphs read:
The heads of the Ryerson Students’ Union have been given one week to explain approximately $250,000 in credit card spending, which includes numerous questionable expenditures.
The charges and photos of the credit card statements were first reported by The Eyeopener, Ryerson University’s student newspaper.
The credit card statement, which is addressed to student union president Ram Ganesh, includes purchases at LCBO locations, a shisha lounge and a credit risk company in Stratford, Ont.
