    Indians Might Be Forced To Not Wear "Offensive" Uniforms In Toronto

    TORONTO — A prominent indigenous activist and architect is seeking a court ruling that would prevent the Cleveland Indians from wearing their regular jerseys, using their team name and displaying their logo when they play against the Blue Jays in Toronto this week.

    Douglas Cardinal, an officer of the Order of Canada, has filed applications to the Ontario Superior Court, the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario and the Canadian Human Rights Commission, arguing that the Cleveland Indians’ team name and mascot — Chief Wahoo, a cartoon man with red skin and a feather in his headband — are offensive and discriminatory.

    Don’t use Cleveland’s team name when covering next Blue Jays series, human rights commissioner urges

    When the Blue Jays play Cleveland for the American League Championship Series, the Ontario Human Rights Commissioner wants news outlets to avoid using their opponent’s full name.

    Commissioner Renu Mandhane is far from alone in her concern the name — the Indians — and the team’s bucktoothed, slant-eyed, red-faced logo is an offensive caricature of indigenous people.

    I'm so fuking tired of this Indian/redskins ect . My high school mascot/nickname is the redskins, and we had fuking so called Indians or people that claimed to be offended by the school name hold fuking town hall meeting at the school and city counsel. after 5 years of not getting anywhere they finally gave up for a while. not sure if they have tired recently to get the name changed. I'm not Indian so I guess I cannot relate but damn seems so petty

    Wasn't it the natives that came out in support of the team name and logo in the States? Same deal with the Redskins. Only the Anglo Saxon wussbags and the blacks get offended by them.


    Stuff likes this makes me embarassed to be a Canadian.

    They should play shirtless if they force them to change uniforms. Silly Canucks.

    Allright how about this for a compromise..

    The Indians org changes the logo in return for handing over all the Indian casino gaming licenses across the province so as not to get more people addicted to casino's.

    For awhile, the Tribe should change their logo to a hot Bollywood starlet in a skimpy traditional costume and Hindu makeup eating Tandoori chicken - just to make up for Columbus' geographical error. BoL

    I heard Cleveland and Washington will be getting a new mascot/logo; while Cleveland will still be the Cleveland Indians, Washington Redskins will now be the Washington Red-dots.
    Here is the proposed logo:

    We also produce some pretty mediocre posters.
