The story originally made its way to the internet when students at Oakville Trafalgar High School posted pictures and video footage of the trans-identified male teacher decked out with a ridiculously tight top that was stretched so thin by the fake breasts that the nipples protruded.
According to a Twitter user who claims to be a student at OTHS, the teacher was "a man" last year and the students "can't say anything about it."
This was not accepted well by thousands of other users on the platform, and calls for rule changes or the termination of Lemieux commenced.
In response to the public critique of Lemieux, the school sent a letter to parents in defense of their teacher. Chloe Cole, a detransitioned teenage activist against gender ideology being pushed onto children, posted the message on Twitter, which 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."
This letter caused even more outrage, as many students, parents, and community members alike felt it was inappropriate for Lemieux's hyper-sexual outfit to be permitted in school. Footage capture by Rebel News showed a large protest outside of OTHS on Friday.
Signs with messages like "Teacher's personal propaganda has no place in the classroom" and criticisms of Doug Ford, the Premier of Ontario, were waved by those who were outspoken about this type of so-called "inclusivity" in schools.
On Friday, the Ford government issued its own statement on Lemieux, but some still feel like doesn't go far enough.
Education Minister Stephen Lecce wrote a letter to the Ontario College of Teachers, the organization that licenses, governs and regulates the province's teaching profession in the public interest. They have the power to revoke teaching certificates and change rules of conduct for teachers.
“In this province, in our schools, we celebrate our differences and we also believe that there must be the highest standards of professionalism when in front of our kids,” Lecce told reporters Friday, according to the Toronto Sun.
“And on that basis, I’ve asked the Ontario College of Teachers to review and to consider strengthening those provisions with respect to professional conduct, which we think would be in the interest of all kids in Ontario.”
According to Toronto Sun journalist Brian Lilley, this is "likely not enough."
