The decision was made recently by the board’s discipline committee.

Lundgren, a former Walter Murray Collegiate teacher, was arrested in December 2016 after an online undercover police investigation led officers to seize his electronic devices.

He was charged with attempting to access child pornography and arranging to commit a sexual offence against a child.
