Of course we should take down the statues of Sir John A MacDonald and move them to a museum. The guy is dead. We will take them down to honour the indigenous people who live among us today. John A doesn't deserve any more recognition than the Voyageurs who mapped out the land. Yes we care about democracy, and we should honour the Constitution that gives us freedoms, but not merely the handful of privileged white guys who happened to be in control when it was drafted.
Some of my ancestors were humiliated and their families destroyed in the process of creating what we call Canada, if anyone should be remembered, it is those people.
