Preview Clip

A small town in northern Saskatchewan is asking residents whether it's time to change its slogan. Tisdale has been called The Land of Rape and Honey for about 60 years. Rape refers to rapeseed, a bright yellow crop that was a precursor to the modern canola. But it also offends people who think it means sexual assault. Mayor Al Jellicoe says the town gets one or two complaints a year about the slogan and he wants it changed. (The editor of the local newspaper says the town held a survey on the issue in 1992, but the vote was equally split so the slogan stayed.)
