Markham student charged after alleged anti-Black comments during online class

An 18-year-old student in Markham is charged after allegedly making hate-motivated comments during a Grade 12 online class earlier this year.

York Regional Police say the young man allegedly made several anti-Black comments during a virtual class in April, eventually causing the video session to be shut down.

Const. Laura Nicolle says a high school staff member reported the incident to police on April 15.

Tristan Stronach was arrested last Thursday and charged with making indecent communications.

He is expected to appear in court on Dec. 8 in Newmarket.
