Media wrongly name individual as transgender Halton teacher

The Halton District School Board finds itself in the eye of a media storm over a transgender teacher whose photo has appeared in GTA news stories wearing a very large set of prosthetic breasts.  The board has defended the teacher saying the man who is transitioning to female is an excellent teacher in the shop class.

Now it appears some media have incorrectly identified the HDSB staff member. The board issued a statement clarifying the matter that reads.” the Halton District School Board would like to formally correct misinformation that is being spread online and in the media about a staff member.

“Oakville Trafalgar High School has received significant attention online over the past several days. As part of this coverage, a teacher has been incorrectly identified as “Stephen Hanna”. While we cannot confirm the identity of the individual in the photos/videos/radio segments, we can confirm that the individual is not Stephen Hanna. Stephen Hanna is a staff member of the Halton District School Board who is an entirely separate individual and is completely unrelated to this matter.”

“The HDSB requests that all news outlets/online publications who have incorrectly reported on this, correct this immediately and remove Mr. Hanna’s name from all content (i.e., print, online, video, etc.) related to this matter.”
