TORONTO - Two security guards hired to watch over a Mississauga high school during the teachers’ labour action are accused of selling drugs to students.

The Peel District School Board (PDSB) says a parent of a student at Clarkson Secondary School came forward a week ago, on Dec. 4, after hearing about two security personnel who were allegedly dealing drugs.

“It’s absolutely distressing,” Carla Pereira, a board spokesman, said Tuesday of the allegations.

She said the parent didn’t know if drugs were being sold to students, but staff contacted Peel Regional Police immediately and they investigated.
