In March 2019 police said they had been investigating reports of indecent acts near York House in the Shaughnessy neighbourhood for months. Students who attend the private school range from Kindergarten to Grade 12.

BC RCMP spokesperson Dawn Roberts told Black Press Media the alleged incidents occurred while the Mountie was off duty.
