Im signing this because my family is Mi'kmaq, and I feel that the names should be changed back to the original names to in respect and in honor the Mi'kmaq peoples that were here before their ladnd was stripped away from them and they were run out of town by the settlers.

We need to repair the damage caused by our ancestors and we continue to benefit from. Changing how we venerate these ancestors is a small start. Change the name or join the evil who deny the true history of this country.

The Lunenburg DocFest invited film makers and poets to create a docupoem about Lunenburg ("Lunenburg Variations", on YouTube) and in my research I learned the ugly story of Cornwallis and his betrayal of First Nations people and Acadian settlers. I believe all history needs to be told, but statues and street names sometimes honour history that is NOT honourable. We do well to recognize our past mistakes, and change the honorific, and so I am signing this petition. We do well to tell ALL history, not only the conquerors'.
