  1. Anyone that is curious about what this means for this country they should look back in history to see what happened to other countries that have done the same thing.

  2. And this is how we know our country is doomed especially when we see what happened to other countries that did this. 
    Those who deny history are doomed to repeat it

  3. Can you imagine any other country in the World allowing this? Who are these activists,
    sometimes I wonder if they are working for foreign entities. We need leadership who will
    reinstate dignity to Canada rather than a bunch of Liberal bed wetter’s.

    1. I could see it from Germany, USA, UK, and France. Anyone outside of the North American/European continents hell no.

  4. Hate that it was removed but on the bright side at least it wasn’t pulled down and smashed. Sad that I have to celebrate that but when this madness is pushed back it will be in one piece.

    1. But that is exactly what is not happening. Statues legitimize history they don’t teach it.

    1. Blind worship and idiolization of historical figures IS the erasure of history. The whole point of moving the statue and changing the signage and messaging where the statue was is to INFORM the public of the WHOLE STORY. If we don’t teach this complete version we will be bound to repeat the mistakes of the past.
