Where did the colonial myth of Canadian friendliness / politeness begin? More importantly, what does it serve? It often comes alongside the notion that there were no Indian Wars here like in the US, therefore colonialism was “less violent” (or non-existent, à la Harper) here.

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.

Suzanne Morton tells me the name "Martlets" came in ca1976. From 1961-76 the women's teams were called "the Squaws" or "Super Squaws." Yeah. You read that correctly. Indigenous students protested - the letter below is from 1971.
