Canada: Muslim-led committee requests Catholic Central School Board remove mascot

The Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-Oppression Advisory Committee brought the request forward, suggesting that the Catholic Central “Crusaders” adopt a new moniker.

Committee chair Rifat Hussain told 980 CFPL that the mascot references the Crusades, a series of holy wars fought in the Middle Ages.

“It’s still a part of history that’s not pretty,” said Hussain.
