Mississauga camp counsellor Alexander Clarke, an employee of the Canada Border Service Agency (CBSA), has been charged with child pornography-related offences for allegedly filming a six-year-old in a washroom at MC Day Camp. Peel Regional Police (PRP) revealed that Clarke was also in the process of being hired as a police officer, but the PRP has since terminated the hiring process.

Clarke, 26, of Mississauga, had been a volunteer at MC Day Camp since June of 2018. He was arrested and charged with voyeurism, possession of child pornography, making child pornography, and making available child pornography. The alleged offence occurred between December of last year and this month, with the six-year-old victim filmed while “in a state of undress.”

Following the arrest, investigators executed a search warrant at Clarke’s residence and found evidence suggesting there may be additional victims. Police are appealing to the public and parents of children who have attended MC Day Camp to come forward with any information to help identify potential victims.

Sgt. Sarah Patten emphasized the importance of communication with children about their interactions with teachers, counsellors, and friends, encouraging parents to discuss these matters openly. Investigators will be exploring all possible avenues to identify any other victims who might have been in contact with Clarke since he became a camp counsellor in 2018.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the police or Crime Stoppers anonymously.
