Quote: ‘She was laughing at all of us. She was like, ‘Why are you so uncomfortable? I know you’re all having sex.’ Most of us were like, please let me die in this chair.’ – ‘Rachel’, a 2006 student at Philemon Wright High School in Gatineau, who had fake nurse Brigitte Cleroux as a teacher, another job in which she had no qualifications.
