McGill Drops 'Redmen' Team Name

April 15, 2019

McGill University, in Montreal, will change the name of its men’s sports teams from the “Redmen” after protests from students, faculty and staff who argued that the name is discriminatory, CBC reported.

Fortier said a steering committee will determine a new name for the teams.
