Gay principal at Ontario Catholic school loses license over partner’s sexual abuse of students
THUNDER BAY, Ontario, August 9, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The former principal of a small Catholic school in northern Ontario has had his license revoked by the Ontario College of Teachers for ignoring the repeated sexual abuse of students by one of his homosexual partners.
Jacques Perron was found guilty of “professional misconduct” earlier this year and was barred on Wednesday from reapplying for his teaching license for at least five years.
The former principal of a French-language Catholic school had hired two men, Pierre Grondin and Jannick Gélinas — with whom he was sexually involved — to work at the school. Grondin was hired as part-time school custodian and Gélinas as school secretary.
From 2003-6, Grondin exposed himself to male students in the classroom and in a hotel while on a school trip, sexually abused an intellectually-challenged male student several times a week for a number of years, and sexually abused two sisters while filming them. He also harassed staff and enforced Perron’s unwritten policy of no dissent.
The discipline committee of the Ontario College of Teachers ruled in January that Perron “acted inappropriately and incompetently, violated the ethics of the teaching profession, and failed to carry out his professional responsibilities”.
During the hearing, Perron’s defense lawyer admitted that the principal used “wilful ignorance” to “overlook” the actions of his homosexual lover.
Principal Perron was accused by staff of “foster[ing[ a climate of intimidation, manipulation, retaliation, threats and criticism”, making it difficult for anyone to raise a voice against him or his actions.
Yvonne Monto, a teacher, secretary, and technician at the school, described the school as having “an absolutely toxic, unbearable atmosphere” because, she said, Perron controlled everything.
Monto testified that Perron used his homosexual lover Grondin to propagate harassment.
One trustee, René Nadeau, testified that he could not confront the homosexual principal, because he was afraid of retaliation against his spouse.
Staff describe Perron’s behaviour as aggressive. In one incident, he asked a teacher returning from the bathroom if she had masturbated.
During Perron’s reign of terror at the school, religion classes ceased and students began accessing porn from the school’s computers. Donald Dionne, who served as Interim Principal for the school from November 2004 to June 2005, testified at a court hearing earlier this year that the school had been stripped of “religious teaching” and that “students had access to pornographic websites”.

Robert Laplante, a human resources consultant and a retired supervisory officer, observed during his three-day visit to the school in January 2005 that staff records were “incomplete," including “no criminal background checks” on employees. He also confirmed that “no religion classes were offered” at that time.
Discipline to the homosexual principal comes at a time when leaders of life and family issues are urgently warning parents of the infiltration of the school system by homosexuals crusading to indoctrinate children into the gay lifestyle.
Last month Ontario’s former Deputy Minister of Education was arrested in the wake of an international child pornography and child exploitation sting that led to his doorstep. Dr. Ben Levin, who oversaw the development of a sex-education curriculum that critics say contains an underlying homosexual agenda, was charged with making and distributing child pornography as well as arranging for a sexual offense with a child.
“Why would we push anti-bullying programs or social studies classes that teach kids about the historical contributions of famous queers unless we wanted to deliberately educate children to accept queer sexuality as normal?” wrote Daniel Villarreal in a 2011 piece that appeared on the popular gay site Queerty.com.
“Recruiting children? You bet we are,” he said.
“We want educators to teach future generations of children to accept queer sexuality. In fact, our very future depends on it.”
“And I would very much like for many of these young boys to grow up and start f**ing men,” he said.
Perron’s new lawyer Jacques Roy said on Wednesday that his client plans to appeal the college’s recent decision since he now denies that he ignored the abuses perpetrated by his homosexual partner.
“I feel like a victim,” he said after the hearing, adding his belief that the decision was the result of false accusations from former students and colleagues out to destroy his reputation.
