I was an abysmal student and regularly ended up in detention with him. Despite that and especially in hindsight, I realize he was in fact an excellent teacher who pushed for all of his students to excel.

Only had him once as a teacher and he was quite meticulous. He was my basketball coach for many years, couldn't do a layup but we saw he took out every book in the library on Basketball. He was the first coach I had that knew anything about visual imagery and it's significance. We won a Jr championship in '87 against Westwood (no easy task). Wrote a sport psych paper about that team and his coaching whilst at Laurier and got an A.
Misunderstood but harmless in my opinion. J.B. #21

I was a student of his back in the day, and I thought Chem we super duper difficult. In university I found Chemistry really easy because no one care if I put an extra number after the decimal. He was picky with his marking. I have to say I think I did well because of that, I studied so very hard in his class, and still ended up with a 75% or something, and in univeristy I got over 80% in chem courses, so thank you Mr. Lafleur. I am a chem and Math teacher now in an international school in UAE.

He is a really strict teacher but only because he wants you to succeed. He has good notes, but other than that he is always giving out detentiong over little things most teachers won't care about.

Neil was very articulate in displaying his bias towards some students at the expense of others. With easy he denied you marks if it did not fit his cookie cutter marking regime or your notes were not neat enough. I have to thank him for killing my dreams of pursuing sciences and going into finance (I thank him for that and my home on Palm Island South Beach!!) If I had the foresight to see how my fate would have played out, my time with him would not been as scarring to me.

oooOOOooo way too strict teacher but his strictness is the reason why there is silence and discipline in class. i like his habit of randomly picking students in class to answer questions it helps us stay awake and understand because we know that any time we can be the one asked that question! in short a real great teacher!!!

He's no doubt a very strict teacher. He's at times i would say unreasonable, when it comes to marking tests but he's a very good and hard working teacher. I did well in uni cause of his chem class.
