These statues are reminders of cruelty.
These leaders do not deserve to be remembered .
They have no right to look down on any human .
They deserve to be broken like they tried to break spirits .
They will pay a price when they meet God .

Idolizing this man despite his complacency in the murder and abuse of Indigenous children is appalling. He does not deserve a statue, I don’t care about his achievements and influence on our modern education system. The blood of children is on his hands, along with many others, and as such they do not deserve statues.

This is an embarrassing to our country and a disrespect to our indigenous. How can we have a statue showing of someone who was the engineer of Canada’s residential school system? TAKE IT DOWN

Canada puts out the notion “we are with the Indigenous peoples”, but we all know that’s a front. So now Canada has the opportunity to put their words into action.
Canada, do the right thing and take this statue down.
