McGill students make it clear, change the Re*men name. Congrats Indigenous Affairs! I hope that McGill will recognize your leadership & finally change the name. Indigenous students started this in the 70s, again in 1992, & it needs to end in 2018.

At its core, our use of Indigenous symbolism, names and stereotypes in our sports teams is about white supremacy. Whether we intend for it to be or not. That’s how one US scholar sees the debate.
