What to do about controversial monuments?

Culture Montreal – which has a fairly spiffy website but I’m not sure what it exactly is – is trying to figure out what we should do with monuments of once honoured figures who have since become regarded as controversial. The item is illustrated with a photo of the Macdonald statue after one of its red-paint decorations.

Amusingly, this follows Andrew Scheer’s plan to do more for the memory of Sir John A.

(Frankly, they can have Macdonald, if they’ll let me light the fuse to blow the bust of Camille Laurin sky high at the corner of Sherbrooke and St-Urbain. No? Too soon?)
