Consent Resolution Agreements

The former BC College of Teachers consent resolution model gave the Preliminary Investigation Sub-Committee (PISC) the ability to work with a member to explore the possibility of an agreement on the relevant facts and the outcome as it related to his or her practice. PISC had final authority to approve or reject an agreement.

  • Davidson, John Lindsay

    admitted to professional misconduct and agreed that his conduct was contrary to College Standards 1 and 2. In March 2011, while Mr. Davidson was using a projector to show his middle school class instructional material, a female student saw a shortcut to “school girl porn” on his laptop. The student’s parent reported it to the school. A school district investigation found that Mr. Davidson’s laptop contained 14 web links to pornography videos. The titles of some of the links included references such as “schoolgirl,” “teacher” and “coach.” The history of sites visited on the computer included further references to pornographic materials. An RCMP review of Mr. Davidson’s laptop concluded that the pornography websites that were visited portrayed adults in pornographic roles and not of child pornography. Mr. Davidson relinquished his College certificate of qualification in April 2011. On December 21, 2011, the Preliminary Investigation Sub-Committee approved the Consent Resolution Agreement in which Mr. Davidson undertook that he would not re-apply for, nor would he be re-issued, a certificate of qualification for a period of no less than 15 years.
