Balance

by Megan Richards,
i would prefer not to see the figure of john a mcd but to leave the courtroom stage and the seat and a plaque explaining who he was and ALL of what he is responsible for in Canada. this courtroom image would serve to imply a continued quest for justice while at the same time bringing the canadian past into the present. i think an acknowledgement that we need truth and reconciliation (and, i would add, restitution) to play a strong role in the recognition and honouring of both settler history achievements and atrocities.

alternatively, if he must stay, then an addition could be incorporated into the presentation that would visually represent and honour the impact his despicable racism had on the building of canada and the resilience of first nations in the face of such insidious and destructive policies and actions
