Murray Rowe, the Student Association of George Brown College’s (SA) LGBTQ representative has resigned from the board of directors.
In a letter to the board that he posted on Facebook Rowe wrote, “after considering the numerous actions of the executive membership of the board I can not, in good conscience, continue my participation on a board where transparency and accountability are not respected and demonstrated.”
Gagan Deep, the SA’s director of communications and internal, said that the SA’s executive committee accepted Rowe’s resignation and that they appreciate the work that Rowe has done for the SA.
Deep said that the SA will be posting the LGBTQ representative position on the SA website and that the board will appoint someone in January.
“We welcome all students who self-identify as a members of the LGBTQ constituency to apply for the position and the best candidate will be selected,” said Deep.
