St. Mary Catholic Secondary School in Pickering is demanding students return their yearbooks after it was learned that someone replaced a graduation message with a racial slur. The school says it is intent on finding out who did this. Durham Police are said to be investigating what happened. The target of the phony message, Joshua Telemaque, 18, has been honoured by friends and given a scholarship by the Pinball Clemons Foundation.
