Wade Nodding — a custodian with Nova Scotia’s South Shore Regional School Board — came across a piece of paper on a classroom floor while working the evening shift on April 9, 2013.

The piece of paper turned out to be a letter written by a student detailing bullying experienced at the hands of a classmate. What Nodding did with that letter led to his termination.

Nodding has worked as a custodian for the school in question since 1998 and has served as a volunteer assistant coach on the school’s wrestling team for a number of years.
