A Catholic high school in Pickering has recalled its 2019-20 yearbooks and launched a formal investigation after racist content was published alongside a black student’s graduation photo. In a public Facebook posting, the St. Mary Catholic Secondary School student’s aunt, Mayma Raphael, said the original message next to his picture, “RIP Grandma. Thank you for guiding me through my four years of high school,” had been replaced with “Rip Harambe Dooga booga.”
