PM #40065782 March 23, 2020 Labour Reporter Canadian Ontario teacher's suspension reduced after physical altercation with student AN ONTARIO teacher's 10-day suspension was reduced because it was based on a level of misconduct that was not proved in related legal proceedings. Ian Marquis was an elementary school teacher for the Toronto District School Board, hired by the board in 2001. On May 15, 2015, Marquis was supervising students during the afternoon recess. At the end of the recess, students lined up at the door to go back inside the school, as usual. However, one particular student, who had being playing with a ball, continued to do so as the others lined up. Marquis called out to the student multiple times to pick up the ball and get in line. After the student failed to comply, he approached the student — who was eight years old — and asked for the ball. When the student didn't immediately give it to him, Marquis grabbed at the ball to take it away.
