Sir John to remain on Main Street

by Bruce Nicholson,
I hold tremendous respect for what Sir John A. Macdonald accomplished as a lawyer and Canada's first prime minister. He has been attacked by individuals who are either ignorant of the facts of residential schools or have a bias against establishment. Attendance, at such schools. was not made mandatory until after his term as Prime Minister.

Sir John A. introduced the Electoral Franchise Act in 1885 to allow women and indigenous peoples to vote.

He stood up for minorities and the under-priviledged.

The statue honours an historical Picton citizen who went on to become our Father of Confederation.

The County should recognize contributors to our wonderful County and street art is a beautiful form of recognition. Harley MacFarland is another name that comes to mind as someone who achieved much for PEC .

Let's keep the statue where it is to honour this remarkable citizen.
