Student magazine editors at BCIT suspended for leaking email telling them not to publish a story

Two student editors at the magazine of the BC Institute of Technology were suspended from their duties for leaking an email asking them not to publish a report about an alleged voyeurism case. According to a story from the Canadian Press, Lindsay Howe and Jessica Fedigan say they were suspended by publishing manager Dan Post on behalf of the student association. He said an accusation of a man accused of filming students in a campus washroom was a "non-news story". The email was then published on the BCIT broadcast news website. 

CTV Vancouver reported that a 23-year-old man was accused of using a cellphone to record fellow students at the school's main campus in Burnaby last November.
