After more than six decades, the town of Tisdale, Saskatchewan, is ditching its rather unfortunate town slogan.
The "rape" in the slogan refers to rapeseed, from which canola is derived.
In a statement, Mayor Al Jellicoe called the name change "a good news story for Tisdale."
"Updating our brand with a focus on our current strengths and local capabilities will help us better convey what our community has to offer to residents, visitors, tourists and investors," he said.
