WINNIPEG — The head of Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission says it's time to get rid of offensive indigenous mascots which would never be tolerated if they targketed any other cultural group.
Justice Murray Sinclair, who spearheaded an examination of Canada's residential schools, says sports teams with offensive names such as Redskins and
 cartoonish aboriginal-looking mascots have no place in a country trying to come to grips with racism in its past.
"It's only indigenous peoples' symbols that are being utilized by sports teams. I don't think there is any cultural group that is subject to that anymore," Sinclair said in an interview. "People need to re-examine their behaviour — all aspects of their behaviour — the way they are doing business."
