Rodeo and parade organizers apologizes for the display of racist float

BY THE CANADIAN PRESS, Jun 27, 2022 2:21 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Rodeo and parade organizers apologized for the display, which is being condemned by the Sikh community as a racist act.

Sundre Pro Rodeo posted a statement from its parade committee on Facebook which said the float had not been approved and that it joined the parade without passing through any registration.

Photos of the float that circulated on social media drew condemnation from some Alberta M-Ps as well as a Sikh group in Calgary, which said the float was racist.
