    Looks like it's boiled over from the Bedford Road debate in Saskatoon that Western Canada High (which I believe is Calgary's oldest high school) may be facing a similar debate here shortly.

    Perhaps the best quote in the article came from the starting point guard Amitoj Rehill:

    John G. Diefenbaker is likely to be the next to fall under review:

    Although I know that the old school chant of "Chiefs on the warpath" is no longer used.

    Here's the photo from the press conference in Houston where 4 schools changed their team names and logos.

    Was there only 3 names and logos to choose from, and Hamilton and Westbury lost the draw and had to use the exact same?

    Well you know "H is for Huskie"

    If only some parent group would stir up a fuss and accuse them of calling their kids fat. "My precious little girl isn't HUSKY!"
