In response to allegations of improper sexual conduct involving a former teacher, Upper Canada College is asking its alumni to come forward with any information about his behaviour while at the school.

Peter Dalglish, a prominent humanitarian worker who taught at the prestigious Toronto boys school from 1998 to 2002, was arrested in Nepal last month on suspicion of sexual offences involving children.
