Teacher in Canada suspended after being filmed doing Nazi salutes and using the n-word in class
When a Montreal high-school teacher was filmed using the n-word in class, multiple times, he said it was for educational purposes, in a context that was “purely historical.”
But several former students at the school, Henri-Bourassa High School in Montreal North took to social media to insist that teacher Vincent Ouellette regularly used offensive language in class, and they have the videos to back it up.
“After the Charlie Hebdo situation, the teacher targeted some Muslim students in the class and asked them to apologize for the events that happened in France,” one young student, named only as Hiba, told Canada’s CTV news.
He did Nazi salutes in class every time he talked about Hitler, she said.
The videos that were posted about Ouellette last week, mostly on Snapchat, were sparked by students hearing about the controversy at the University of Ottawa, where the professor said the n-word in class during a lesson about pejorative terms.
On Wednesday, October 28, the school board said Mr Ouellette has been suspended and they are “taking the situation very seriously.”
