Avocado tree sucker, should I cut it off?

Avocado    Ontario

I have a 5-month avocado tree that has had a sucker shooting out on the side almost a month since it started growing. I'm wondering whether I should cut if off as I have read that the sucker usually steals nutrients from the rest of the tree. Have any of you had this experience? If so, what did you do?
