A Canadian teacher at Oakville Trafalgar High School in Ontario who recently began identifying as a woman has sparked some controversy. Reportedly, the teacher wore a large set of fake breasts with protruding nipples and short shorts while teaching young students.
The situation has drawn attention from both local and international media outlets.
A video taken during Lemieux’s shop class, seemingly without the teacher’s knowledge, has recently been circulated on social media.
The video reveals a bust that appears to be inauthentic and the teacher’s dress which is inappropriate for the classroom setting. In the video, Lemieux can be seen demonstrating how to use a circular saw.

After receiving numerous complaints, the administration at Oakville Trafalgar High School (OTHS) in Ontario, Canada sent an email to parents addressing Lemieux’s job status, defending Lemieux’s job status in the name of inclusivity, according to Reduxx.
A statement to the high school’s parents read:
“We are aware of discussion on social media and in the media regarding Oakville Trafalgar High School. We would like to take this opportunity to reiterate to our community that we are committed to establishing and maintaining a safe, caring, inclusive, equitable and welcoming learning and working environment for all students and staff.

Hundreds of concerned parents, students, and citizens gathered outside Oakville Trafalgar High School in protest of a teacher’s reported lack of propriety.
After six months, the school decision-makers put the teacher on paid leave. This decision was received positively by many parents at the school, who praised the final resolution.
Lemieux, a shop teacher at Oakville Trafalgar High School, was placed on paid leave on Tuesday following reports that they did not consistently wear their prosthetic breasts outside of teaching classes.

On Wednesday, the Daily Mail reported that a teacher, who was previously known as Lemieux, attended Nora Frances Henderson Secondary School wearing men’s attire and introducing himself by his legal name of Kerry.
The Halton Regional Police Service collaborated with school officials to ensure the individual’s safety while arriving on campus; two unmarked police cars were present and security guards were accompanying this individual.
Furthermore, Principal Tom Fisher sent out a letter to parents prior to the start of school in which he outlined various preventative measures such as specific entrance and exit points for students and locking exterior doors during school hours.
It is noted that no organized protests occurred outside of the school grounds.
More from Daily Mail:
Halton Regional Police Service has kept mum on precautions and whether there have been any threats against Lemieux or the school.
One student who will have Lemieux as a teacher said it was ‘a little bit’ of a relief to know that Lemieux was presenting as a male. He said Lemieux’s appearance, including the bogus mega-breasts with prominent nipples, was ‘kinda weird.’
A female student returning to Nora Frances Henderson Secondary School said Lemieux’s previous look was a distraction.
‘It is very unprofessional to show up at the school in that,’ she said. ‘I feel like if it’s going to bring only bad things to the school, why should it be allowed?
‘I feel like they changed our school a lot to accommodate this person.’
But, most students said they were not bothered when they found out that Lemieux would be teaching at their school.
‘Not really,’ said one boy, with a shrug. ‘My dad was so pissed, though!’
Another said: ‘As long as it doesn’t cause any harm to our school or the students, it’s like, whatever.’
