Former Ticat Marwan Hage says he’s the victim of racial profiling at airport

Former Hamilton Tiger-Cats offensive lineman Marwan Hage says he is routinely the victim of racial profiling at the Montreal airport.

Hage, who retired in 2013 and now owns several Tim Hortons franchises in Toronto as well as serving as a CFLPA vice-president, took to Twitter on Saturday after being selected for secondary screening at the Montreal airport, something he says happens on a regular basis.

Hage was born in Beruit, Lebanon and emigrated to Montreal when he was nine. He was well known for his charitable works in the Hamilton community, largely through his Hage’s Heroes campaign, during his time with the Ticats.

Ticat owner Bob Young voiced his support for Hage and encouraged other Hamilton fans to do the same.

He also got a response from the airport.
