Students' Society of McGill University president resigns

March 14, 2017

The president of the Students’ Society of McGill University recently became the third prominent member of the council to resign in just over two weeks. The Montreal Gazette reports that the SSMU published a brief statement last Thursday announcing Ben Ger’s resignation, citing only “personal reasons” as the cause for the departure. “Due to personal reasons, (Ger) felt that he was unable to continue in his duties as a representative of members of the Society,” the statement reads. “Ben will be missed as a member of our team and SSMU thanks him for his service to the Society.” Ger’s resignation follows those of Igor Sadikov as arts representative on March 8, and David Aird as vice-president (external affairs) on February 22.
