Apology for 42-year-old yearbook slur
A B-C man has finally received the apology he was seeking for a slur published next to his yearbook photo back in 1970.
Robin Tomlin says he is very happy to have received a sincere, face-to-face apology from Argyle Secondary School and the North Vancouver School District.
And now he also has a new page in his yearbook that reads what he has always meant it to say, "to meet as many people from all over the world as i can and i want to be a cowboy."
The yearbook had originally been published with the word "fag" next to his picture.
His friends carrying candles to remember all victims of bullying greeted him outside with cheers and plan to celebrate tonight.
District Officials say they hope the apology and the new page will help Tomlin find peace.
