cart before the horse

by DeElina,
I question why city council removed the J.A.Macdonld statue from the park before asking for input from anyone except one segment of Regina's population. This change involves everyone, not just the FN community. MacDonald wasn't perfect but who among us is? He did a lot to build Canada so why are we concentrating on only one of his actions? The statue could have stayed in the park with an information placard listing all his accomplishments...good and bad. Changing names of buildings, parks,rec centers and streets or removing statues will do nothing to change history. It is important to learn from it. Everyone's ancestors are important including all the pioneers who molded a bare piece of prairie into the province and cities we have today. Everyone should be heard.
