Toronto police attempt to remove foot from mouth...again

The Toronto police are responding to a story published last week, in which an officer told a school principal that students of a prep school might want to avoid wearing school uniforms after two young girls complained of being harassed and leered at while riding the TTC.

Two female students at Greenwood College, a private prep school for students in Grades 7 to 12, complained to police last week that a man had leered at them and attempted to look up their skirts as they travelled to school on the subway. The two were wearing their school uniforms, which includes a blazer and skirt.

The girls filed a report with police. The school’s principal sought advice from the investigating officer. The principal then sent out an email to parents and teachers based on that advice, the Toronto Sun reported.

In the email the principal wrote: “Students, especially females, should consider not wearing their school uniforms while riding the TTC.”
