‘Champlain’s Return’

“A much-debated monument to Samuel de Champlain will be {partially} reinstalled in an Ontario town with ‘significant changes’, Parks Canada announced. The original monument in Orillia, northeast of Toronto, portrayed the French explorer along with several other figures, including four statues of ‘First Nations’ {aboriginal} people represented in a way some considered ‘racist’. 

“Parks Canada owns the structure and the land it sat on, and took the monument down for refurbishing after a 2015 assessment showed it was deteriorating. In a release, Parks Canada said only the figure of Champlain will be reinstalled immediately. The other bronze statues, including those portraying ‘indigenous’ {they mean ‘aboriginal’} people, will be the subject of further consultation with ‘First Nations’ {aboriginals} and other ‘stakeholders’ {?} starting later this year, Parks Canada said.
“The federal agency said its decision was informed by ‘public’ {aboriginal} consultation and the recommendations of a working group, which had been studying the issues for eight months. The working group included the Orillia municipal government, Parks Canada representatives, ‘First Nations’ {aboriginals} and other groups. Parks Canada said it would implement the recommendations of the working group in full.

“The monument was unveiled in 1925 and portrayed Champlain atop a stone slab. Below him on both sides were two other scenes, in which ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} people were shown sitting at the feet of a Jesuit priest and a fur trader. A plaque accompanying the monument said it was meant to commemorate
the advent into Ontario of the white race.”

“The plaque will now be updated to honour its “original intent within the context of contemporary ‘knowledge’ and ‘wisdom’“, according to the recommendations of the working group. The plaque’s final text will also be part of the forthcoming consultations, Parks Canada said.

“In addition to the changes to the monument itself, the working group’s recommendations call for further works or signs to be created that will more ‘accurately’ describe the history of Samuel de Champlain’s relationship with ‘First Nations’ {aboriginals}. They knew the land through which his expeditions travelled and he relied on them for guides, advice and supplies. The “reimagining” of the monument would add “much needed context{‘much-needed political correctness’}, the Parks Canada release said.

“The monument had been taken down by Parks Canada in 2017, after a 2015 review found it was damaged. But Parks Canada delayed reconstructing it after hearing complaints about the representation of ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} people and considering the findings of the {aboriginal} federal {Partial} Truth and {One-way} ‘Reconciliation’ Commission.”

Background:
Down With Champlain?{April 13, 2018}:
“Now, some aboriginals want Champlain’s statue removed. It’s in Orillia, Ont., but a Quebec tribe wants it gone. A Quebec Mohawk tribe is also attempting to stop the western Canadian ‘Trans Mountain’ pipeline. Why are these tribes interfering with activities outside their so-called ‘traditional territories’? Why are government officials listening??”
