Instructor let go from UoGuelph, UWaterloo after controversial paper surfaces

A sessional lecturer who taught engineering classes at the University of Guelph and University of Waterloo is no longer affiliated with either university after a paper written under his name sparked controversy, reports blogTO. The 20-page paper included broad claims about gender stereotypes, dating, and marriage, as well as a discussion of the difficulties that professors face when attempting to date students. BlogTO and The Star report that the lecturer has denied writing the paper. According to the National Post, the paper sparked backlash on social media and was sent to UWaterloo administration by a student last month. UoGuelph and UWaterloo have since stated that the lecturer is no longer teaching at their institutions.
