Who really can cast the first stone?
The statues that are erected for our historical leaders should not be removed. There was a reason they were immortalized. If you want to dig deep enough you can probably find 'dirt' on any historical figure. A lot of the things that we now consider "bad' may have been normal at the time and/or had a legitimate reason for the actions that were taken. As for the Picton statue, it should be left where it as, as that location is meaningful to the town, itself.
