Honourable Stephen Lecce
I am writing to you regarding an item of Schedule 3 Ontario College of Teachers Act of Bill 98 that reads:
6 (1) Clause 26 (5)(d) of the Act is repealed and the following substituted: (d) take such action as it considers appropriate in the circumstances and that is not inconsistent with this Act, the regulations or the by-laws, including, (i) issuing a caution, reminder, advice or admonishment to the person complained against, or (ii) requiring the member to complete remedial training or education.
This change will enable the OCT to require its members to undergo remedial training or education without any proof of guilt, at their own cost, and force its members to endure humiliation, undue stress and disruption brought upon their lives and well-being.
It is no secret that during the past few years, the number of complaint cases against teachers has increased, many of which are a direct result of the superficial social sensitivity promoted through the current political and social culture. Most of the complaints of this nature are against OCT members who have opposing views of the currently dominant far-left narrative, and they have dared to express their opinion on their personal social media.
