Despite logo removal, Ontario Indigenous activist still pursuing Cleveland Indians complaint

Monique Jilesen is quoted in the Canadian Press article Ontario activist still wants to proceed with Cleveland Indians complaint, despite team dropping logo, which has been picked up by the National Post, the Globe & Mail, and Global News. The article discusses the recent decision made by MLB and the Cleveland baseball team to discontinue the use of the discriminatory Chief Wahoo logo.


Law firm Lenczner Slaght, which is shepherding Cardinal’s complaints through various tribunal processes, issued a statement celebrating Major League Baseball’s decision to do away with the Chief Wahoo image.

But lawyer Monique Jilesen said the firm is still considering “all the implications” of the decision for their case, adding lawyers will be discussing the situation with Cardinal in the coming days.
