I Rather My Kids Learn Both Sides of the Story

by TellUsAStory,
There is the old saying...those that ignore history are doomed to repeat it. I certainly hope that NEVER occurs with what was done to First Nation peoples under Sir John A McDonald. However, I think there is a point for people to learn both sides of what that man did during his life. I really hope that after a new home is found for the statue we overhaul the plaque outlining both the positive things he did for this country and the negative. I don't think ignoring history and putting it out of site in storage will be good for anyone in the long haul. However I understand the desire to move the statue to a different location and provide more context on what he did.
