But you'll never hear the media allege that its leader is one:
The chairman of the Monarchist League of Canada has been named in a class-action lawsuit alleging he molested a 13-year-old boy nearly 30 years ago when he was a teacher at an expensive private school in Montreal.
Petitions filed yesterday in Quebec Superior Court say John Aimers, now an English teacher at a private Toronto school, sexually assaulted a former Selwyn House student, known as "D.J.," in 1977.
Mr. Aimers did not return repeated calls for comment. No criminal charges have been brought against him and the allegations made yesterday were contained in a lawsuit not yet tested in court. A statement of defence has not been filed.
The lawsuit also accuses a second teacher, James Hill, of molesting a former student at the all-boys school, where tuition runs up to $17,000 a year. Mr. Hill also could not be reached. He has not been charged criminally, and the allegations against him are also unproven in court.
According to the court documents, Mr. Aimers, a respected debating coach, allegedly offered to tutor D.J. at his home, where he plied the boy with liquor and marijuana.
