Scan­dal rocks 166-year-old Mid­town in­sti­tu­tion

North Toronto Post - - News -

Six stu­dents from St. Michael’s Col­lege School have now been charged in con­nec­tion to as­sault, gang sex­ual as­sault and sex­ual as­sault with a weapon af­ter two videos sur­faced on so­cial me­dia de­pict­ing graphic al­leged sex­ual as­sault. Of­fi­cers with the Toronto Po­lice Ser­vice first be­came aware of the al­leged sex­ual as­sault on Nov. 14. In the en­su­ing days and weeks, the to­tal num­ber of in­ci­dents that po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing has in­creased to six. The pri­vate all-boys Catholic school has strug­gled to con­tain the press around th­ese in­ci­dents, par­tic­u­larly over whether there was a fail­ure of lead­er­ship, con­tribut­ing to a cul­ture of bul­ly­ing. On Novem­ber 22, the prin­ci­pal and pres­i­dent of St. Michael’s Col­lege School re­signed from their posts.

A WAY FOR­WARD? Fol­low­ing the ar­rests, St. Mike’s held a meet­ing at­tended by 300 alumni.
