CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

Statues can teach.

by Andrew Janikowski,
This is the man who was responsible for this country we call Canada. Most of the articles of our constitution were written by this man who had to convince others to give the concept of Canada a go. Can we let go of this fact? That is the reality of his positive contribution. There is a lot of negatives about him as well - not to be denied. Let’s leave this statute in a prominent place and use it as a teaching moment how so much good can exist with so much bad.

As an aside - the concentration camps of Nazi Germany are still around. They have not been removed - at the request of the Jewish nation - so that we will never forget. Interesting how radically different our approach to this man is compared to the Nazi camps.
