‘Communists and Aboriginals Take Down Another Canadian Statue’

It’s part of our history I feel is being ripped right out and gutted down. I think that’s just terrible. They just pushed it right through — the public wasn’t allowed to have a say.”

“A statue of Sir John A. Macdonald, Canada’s first prime minister, has been removed from the front steps of Victoria City Hall. The monument was taken down, wrapped in foam and strapped to a flat-bed truck on Saturday morning to be placed in storage.

“City council voted to remove the statue as a gesture of {one-way} ‘reconciliation’ earlier this week. 

“Protesters wrapped themselves in British Columbian and Canadian flags, singing the national anthem. Matthew Breeden travelled from Vancouver to take part.

It’s part of our history I feel is being ripped right out and gutted down. I think that’s just terrible“,
he said.
They just pushed it right through — the public wasn’t allowed to have a say.”

“Katie Hooper, executive director of the Esquimalt ‘Nation’ {a ‘nation’ of 321 people}, applauded the decision.

Removing this statue is an important step in the city’s {one-way} ‘reconciliation’ journey, and is a symbol of progress towards and end to discrimination and oppression“,
Hooper wrote in a letter to Helps…

“A plaque to replace the statue has been installed explaining the monument’s removal.

We will keep the public informed as the Witness Reconciliation Program unfolds, and as we find a way to ‘recontextualize’ Macdonald in an ‘appropriate’ way“,
it reads.

“Victoria isn’t the only Canadian government or institution rethinking honours for Macdonald. In August, an elementary teachers’ union in Ontario called for Macdonald’s name to be removed from their schools.
{The CBC omits that the response was overwhelmingly negative…}

“Three months before that, the Canadian {A}Historical Association voted to strip Macdonald’s name from one of its top writing prizes.”

“Victoria city councillors passed a motion Thursday to remove the statue of John A. Macdonald, Canada’s first prime minister, from the front steps of city hall. In a seven-to-one vote, council endorsed a recommendation from the ‘City Family’, a group created by the municipality last year to address issues of {one-way} ‘reconciliation’, to have the statue temporarily removed Saturday…

Macdonald, who supported the creation of government-funded residential schools, was a
leader of violence against Indigenous peoples“, the city said

“The Sir John A. Macdonald Historical Society, which presented the city with the statue in 1982, said members would like to be consulted about its future location.

We should not lose sight of our history so that we may learn from the mistakes that may have been made by our past politicians and leaders“,
the society’s chairman, Michael Francis, said in a written statement.
Sometimes an appropriate location of a statue with a suitable plaque to reflect the strengths and weaknesses on the individual may be far more instructive for all of us than its simple obliteration from the landscape.”

We’re upset”,
said Aaron Gunn, spokesperson for ‘BC Proud’, an online advocacy group. 

[Mayor] Helps, instead of consulting the public, is erasing Canada’s and Victoria’s history instead of leaving it alone and learning from it… Victoria is steeped in history, where do we go from here? Do we change the name of the City because it’s named after a colonial queen? Do we change the name of the province?

“The statue is being removed due to Macdonald’s controversial legacy. While he acted as a Victoria MP, and Canada’s first Prime Minister, he was also the Minister of Indian Affairs during Canada’s implementation of residential schools. The ‘City Family’ felt it didn’t want people visiting City Hall to have to walk past a statue that was potentially associated with ‘trauma’.

“Despite the ongoing attempts of the racist Aboriginal Industry and its foolish ‘allies’ to diminish his accomplishments and demean him personally, fair-minded Canadians – and that’s most of us – will take a moment to give thanks to the man who, more than any other, stubbornly kept pushing for his vision of what became Canada…”

New Mayor Snubs Canada, Gives Back Capital City‘ (Victoria) {December 6, 2014}:
“Victoria’s new mayor, Lisa Helps, declined to swear allegiance to the Queen at her inauguration Thursday {in a B.C. city named for a Queen – and a provincial capital named to celebrate her empire}… Helps said underlying her decision was respect for ‘First Nations’.
“I have nothing against the Queen, but I do strongly support the Songhees and Esquimalt ‘nations’. This is their territory and if there’s anything to emphasize, it’s that.”
