Not a heritage moment

Via the Clarenvile Packet, the good news of a conviction in a disturbing sexual-offence case, even if it is slightly tempered by a strange comment from the presiding judge:

Before the tour in question, Beamish accompanied the brothers into a washroom, where they all urinated at the same time into the same toilet. In their testimony, the boys remembered it as being "really weird."

In his decision, Kennedy noted that Beamish himself acknowledged "His actions were inappropriate and not normally part of Newfoundland and Labrador culture today."

Does that mean that they were normally part of the culture in the past?

If so… thank you, thank you, thank you Mrs. Baikie for skipping over those parts (among many others) of the mandatory curriculum in Cultural Heritage.
