Statue hauled away by city truck

The fallen statue of Sir John A. Macdonald was hauled away by a city truck Sunday morning. No decision has been made yet what to do with it, although there has been a wave of reactions.

I’d say beat it into plowshares, but we don’t need plowshares any more.

That Radio-Canada piece includes a discussion with an historian, who says “vandalizing a statue becomes part of its history. It’s also the history of a society in evolution.”

CBC also spoke to an Indigenous education professor in P.E.I. about the toppling. She makes a good point that nobody got hurt in the gesture, among other things.
