Andrade, who is black, says the person dressed as a Klansman and the man in blackface won first prize, and he left in disgust. He says what angered him even more about the incident was that it was a Royal Canadian Legion hosted party and it was legion members who awarded the prize. Andrade says when he called the legion on Monday to complain he was told hundreds of others had also called in protest. Legion officials, who could not be immediately reached for comment, reportedly issued an apology Tuesday.
Yeah, it seems some need reminding of something alright.
Update 3 November: CBC reports that the Legion command in Ontario has closed the Campbellford branch and the police are looking at the matter.
