Cleveland Indians' logo still under fire from Canadian activist

Paul-Erik Veel was quoted in the CBC Sports article Cleveland Indians' logo still under fire from Canadian activist on July 13, 2017 regarding the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal deciding to move forward with Douglas Cardinal's discrimination case against the Cleveland team name and logo.


Veel says his client isn't asking for much.

"We are asking that the name and logo not be used, which at the practical level doesn't mean that much change," Veel says. "We already know that Cleveland has a uniform that just [uses] the stylized C logo. So it's a matter of taking Chief Wahoo off the hats and off the arms and having that alternative uniform.

"That's easy. It's not a revolutionary change we are asking for."
