Jeff Menard wants to see Prime Minister Stephen Harper, "Thank an Indian."

"My goal is to see ever aboriginal wearing one and someday, even Stephen Harper," Menard said. "Or maybe even Justin Trudeau."

The Winnipeg resident's controversial "Got land? Thank an Indian" t-shirts and hoodies gained national attention this week when a 13-year-old Saskatchewan girl was banned from wearing one at her school.

Tenelle Starr, 13, was told to take off the pink hoodie bearing the slogan 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 sweatshirt again.
