TORONTO (Mar. 9)
A controversial junior high school teacher in Moncton, New Brunswick, has been cleared by the school board of allegations that he spread racist, anti-Semitic views in the classroom.
But the teacher, Malcolm Ross, is still under investigation by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police as to whether three books he has written are in breach of Canada’s anti-hate laws. In them, he claims the Holocaust didn’t happen and that an international Jewish conspiracy is afoot.
The school board began its investigation of Ross in mid-January after two of his former students said in interviews that he had passed on his racial and political opinions to them.
The school board found “he has not been teaching his private views or talking about them” in class, board chairman Carl Ross (no relation) told the Toronto Star.
