Whitfield attempted to avoid The Varsity and refused to identify himself when approached. Darshika Selvasivam, VP campaigns and advocacy at the YFS, was also seen campaigning for the incumbents.

These unclear online voting regulations can easily be abused to the advantage of candidates, which Toby Whitfield, RSU vice president of finance and services, and unsuccesful Senate candidate believes happened.

"This situation reaffirms why online voting doesn't actually make sense," he said.
In November Whitfield opposed a bylaw proposal that would have changed RSU's paper-based elections to online elections. What he feared would happen occurred in the senate elections - people walking around with laptops and telling students how to vote. The bylaw failed by a vote of RSU's general members at the Semi-Annual General Meeting.

Whitfield says even after Schulman talked with the candidates, laptops were still being used to solicit votes.

Station remains under lock-down as two boards battle for control : The Ryerson Free Press

Ryerson Students' Union vice-president Toby Whitfield currently sits on both boards as a representative of the RSU. He notes that he would "like to see both boards come together" to move forward.

However, Whitfield advises that until the issue of who controls CKLN is settled, the RSU will not be forwarding funds from the CKLN student levy to the station. Whitfield also noted that he is "disappointed" to see the station terminating volunteers as he does not feel that is the "best way to go."

Toby Whitfield was seen grinning about the purchase at the back of the room at the media conference.

"OMG," said Whitfield, "now that we've closed Gould Street, our campaign naturally extends to closing other streets.
...
Toby Whitfield has been seen on a ski hill in Quebec, says a report from the student newspaper from McGill University. While there has been no word on whether or not his work is related to the Ryerson Students' Union or the Canadian Federation of Students, he suspiciously covered his face with a balaclava and ski goggles, and purposely took a double-black-diamond run to escape a photographer.
"This is inexcusable," said Jesse Troutman, a former Ryerson student, a former employee of the RSU and the guy who holds the most public beef with Whitfield.
...
"Toby was elected to work at RSU, not be in Quebec. Plain and simple."
When contacted for comment, Whitfield said that he was using two vacation days and met his family in Quebec for a ski getaway. "Sometimes I need a break, you know. I thought reading week was a good time for me to see my family."
Whitfield is entitled to two weeks of vacation as an executive member of the RSU.
...
Toby's the easiest for students to take our aggression out on and because of that he should be in his office all the time, waiting for students to come and yell at him."
At the same time, Whitfield was also spotted running for a student union position at the St. Mary's Student Union in Halifax. Troutman argued that this is gross incompetence and Whitfield has no right to seek executive offices elsewhere in Canada. "This is another example of the control the CFS has in trying to infiltrate student unions," he said.
When confronted about this, Whitfield said that he has a twin brother who lives there. That answer was not good enough for some of Whitfield's critics.
"Seriously, a twin? That's basically impossible," said an anonymous Internet commenter.
Whitfield has been the target of many scandals this past year. While he's managed to reduce the cost of students' health and dental benefits, reduced the lines at the Member Services Office, produce a budget that balances, provides regular financial reports, secured a promise to close Gould Street and somehow was elected to be president of RSU next year, he has been dangerously negligent in his duties, say some students.
