The Manitoba man who started selling clothing that says "Got land? Thank an Indian" has had interest from potential customers all around the world after a Grade 8 student wearing one of his sweaters made headlines this week.
Tenelle Starr, 13, wore a pink hoodie bearing the slogan to her Saskatchewan school, but was told to take it off because it could offend someone. After a meeting between her parents and school officials, the matter was cleared up and she was permitted to wear the sweater again.
But the story made headlines, and now Jeff Menard says he's getting requests from around the globe.
On his Facebook page, people from other provinces, as well as from far away as New Zealand, are eager to get their hands on the shirts, hoodies and even baby bibs.
"It's going like crazy," Menard said Friday. He has been selling the shirts through his Facebook page, but said he's working to get a website.
