    Montreal teacher loses job over nudity in a film 50 years ago

    http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/...board/follows/

    It seems unimaginable today that a 73 year old teacher can lose her job now after it was discovered that she appeared nude in films 50 years ago. Shame on our city!

    Presumably, the director of the school has at least one university degree. Apparently, education can't cure rank stupidity.

    Yeah I read about that in the globe this morning. Its hard to believe in this day and age. I wonder if she has grounds for a human rights complaint or discrimination suit.

    I would feel the same way if it was 50 days ago as I feel about it being 50 years ago.

    It is bullshit.

    Teachers have the right to have a life outside the classroom. If is reasonable that they cannot be naked on school grounds. That is where the line should be drawn.

    Why would anyone want to be a teacher in this day and age? It does not pay well and it is one of the few remaining jobs where moral turpitude is expected outside of the workplace.

    It is even worse in the moralistic U.S.A. There was a teacher fired recently in Florida for posing in a bikini magazine shoot.

    But I remember a conversation I had with a provider who was a dual U.S. / Canadian citizen while she was with Miami Companions escort service in the States (God rest the soul of that great agency). She had a college degree in a subject that was in demand for teaching she said one job that she would not be able to get if her past was exposed was teaching in Canada. That surprised me since escorting is legal in Canada.

    WTF is going on in Montreal?????????? Did a bunch of prudes take over the City? First C-36 and now this. Montreal is becoming more like the USA every day. Maybe Quebec should just become the 51st State while they are at it? LOL.

    50 days ago is a completely different thing. If it was 50 days ago then there might be a valid issue.

    Really shameful. They can not clean the politicians, so they are after hard working honest people.

    C-36 came from several thousand miles to the west. It would be ironic if Quebec or any other part of Canada came to be part of the US as some of us are American refugees.

    Where are the lawyers when we need them? Unless there is a specific clause in her contract obliging her to inform the school of having acted in the nude long before she joined them, it seems to me that she should be able to sue for wrongful dismissal.

    Pretty sure that a morality clause does not have to be in writing. Not saying that I agree with her being dismissed however.

    Not surprised. It seems we are moving backwards to medieval times into an age or Biblical and conservative values. I mean who care if she appeared nude but God forbid any women to expose her body or to sell her body. She made the biggest sin so should be cast off. Nopes. Preserving the values of The Bible and traditional family values is more important then anything else.
    There is no knowledge that is not power.

    C-36 has nothing to do with Montréal. Anti sex work activists are very few and very weak here. This teacher's employer is a private religious institution. We had a case similar in Québec City 2 years ago in a public school. She was an employee, not a teacher, and was doing porn. She lost her job. This case is a private matter in a private school. Absolutely ridiculous. Plus, the school lied when they said this thing created disturbance in the school. Many replied it was false. Fucking religious morality.

    Why? Kids look up to actresses as role models who appear nude in movies all the time. Why can they not look up to teachers who act in nude scenes, pose in nude photos, or do pornography?
