When asked why he declined, Reinders said “when I ran for SRC president I wanted to be an elected leader who could represent students. As a member of the TSC I would be management appointed and have no power to fight for students. I am not willing to serve on a TSC that has little to no power to help students and no mandate whatsoever from students.”

At the time of going to print, the official list of TSC portfolios consisted of a total of 12 members, as stipulated by the CSG. Ho said that he declined to sit on the TSC because he is in the final year of his degree, and would not be able to juggle the responsibilities of the TSC and academics. Gobuamang and Scribante were not available for comment.
