EDMONTON — The growing scandal at an all-boys private school in Toronto made its way to the Grey Cup this morning with the coaches of both teams asked about it at a pre-game news conference.
St. Michael’s College School has been rocked by allegations of assault and sexual assault by students, including violent hazing.
Six boys are facing charges in connection with an alleged sexual assault captured on video that police sources say involved members of a school sports team.
Calgary Stampeders coach Dave Dickenson said he and Ottawa Redblacks coach Rick Campbell were concerned at what had gone on, saying sports should be positive and inclusive.
Campbell declined comment, saying he did not want to downplay a serious issue but needed more information on what happened.
Since the scandal broke last week, a number of former students have come forward with allegations of “sexualized” hazing and the school has said recent incidents clearly indicate it has a problem.
