Taught kids about Pickton

A Maple Ridge substitute teacher who described the gruesome details of the Pickton murders to his Grade 6/7 music class has been reprimanded by the B.C. Commissioner for Teacher Regulation.

According to a consent resolution agreement published online, Tracy Joseph Fairley made a series of inappropriate comments to his students on Jan. 8, 2018.

“He told the students about the Pickton murders, and described how prostitutes were lured to Pickton’s home, killed and then fed to the pigs,” the document says.

He also told students about watching a teenager die in an undertow in Hawaii and warned that a serial killer could “get them” if they ever hitchhike while later telling them about his hitchhiking tours through Europe.

“He told students about a bar he went to where a beautiful young woman asked him to buy her a drink,” the agreement says. “The drink turned out to be very expensive, so he said he was not paying… he described this as a scam or trick the bar played on drunk male customers.”

Fairley also videotaped a class of Grade 5 students without their parents permission, telling them he was going to send the video of the class playing marimbas to a music producer. He never had any intention of following through and was just making the video for his wife.

On April 23, 2018 Fairley resigned from the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows School District.

As a result of the incidents, the teacher agreed to a reprimand and acknowledged that the subjects he discussed with students had nothing to do with music class.
