Such high profile places are and should be reserved for people of good character. Not only this statue but others should be investigated to check their worth. Statues/icons come and go so they should represent contemporary consensus of good deed!

the portrayment of statues like the one of dundas reproduces and sustains historical narratives that are highly problematic and should not be glorified in any way (but rather undergo critical reflection, taking a clear position against the crimes that these people have committed against humanity, and education about these problematics).

If Henry Dundas was racist and owned slaves, the symbol of oppression should be taken down.

The best place for these statues is in a museum where they can be put in the context of history.

We should not glorify racists. This monument is deeply offensive to black people. It is shameful. History can be remembered in books and museums. We do not need a statue to learn about this man and his role in our city’s history.

These guys ‘bought’ their fame. It’s time they were ‘consigned to history’ and not celebrated. There’s a difference.
