Statement by Minister Sandals Regarding Dr. Ben Levin

Ministry of Education

I am aware of the very serious allegations brought forward against Dr. Ben Levin. 

Dr. Levin's only recent involvement with the Ministry has been on contract research projects and guest speaking roles through his capacity as a professor at OISE, work that has been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation.

As these allegations are currently before the courts and the subject of an ongoing police investigation -- the integrity of which must be protected -- it would be inappropriate for the ministry to comment at this time.

All questions regarding police investigation or the laying of charges should be referred to the police service of jurisdiction.   

The Government of Ontario takes allegations of this nature extremely seriously.
