GOSS: Members of the SRC and Honi Soit Spent Literal Hours Last Night Amending Print Editions After Presidential Blunder
By Gossip Pulp
Wondering why you couldn’t find an Honi Soit anywhere on campus yesterday? SRC President God-King Jacky He, as our colleagues at Honi have taken to calling him, made a sizeable error in advertising mental health services that SRC does not in fact provide. He wrote in his president’s report that “ At SRC we understand that times can be tough, but remember that we are always here to help! If you ever need any kind of mental health consultation you can always contact the SRC.” Though “mental health consultation” is a little vague, the SRC has not provided any mental health services in recent memory, nor is it currently planning to do so. Mental health services are available on campus through CAPS and the University Health Service.
Editors of Honi Soit have no editorial control over the SRC reports in the back pages of the paper, and the President and Office Bearers are expected to keep to a weekly rotating schedule in submitting their reports. Jacky He is paid a full time minimum wage, which amounts to approximately $40,000 per annum. He’s reports have been looking a little thin on content of late, with this week’s being the same size as that submitted by the Ethno-Cultural officers, who are unpaid.
The President’s error meant that all copies of Honi Soit had to be taken off stands yesterday, and members of the SRC, including Honi Soit and members of the casework team, worked into the night to cross out the offending sentence in each edition. They were redistributed to all stands in the wee hours of this morning by the SRC and can be picked up at your convenience. Kudos to you if you snagged one without the amendments.
Gossip Pulp reached out to Jacky He for comment but had not received a response at the time of publication.
