Canadore will not act on 'vague' rumours of misconduct: President

April 9, 2019

In an email to Candaore College staff, President George Burton wrote that “vague” rumours and innuendo are insufficient reasons to place an administrator accused of sexual misconduct on leave. The North Bay Nugget reports that Burton sent the email before a planned rally for a respectful workplace. “In order to address the recent allegations, we retained an investigator and an independent third-party investigation process has commenced. We are committed to the principle of due process and transparency throughout the ongoing investigation,” added Burton in the email. Several people have come forward with complaints about inappropriate behaviour by the administrator, and demanded that he be placed on leave as the allegations are investigated. North Bay Nugget (ON)
