Stand Up for John A.
UPDATE - Aug. 11th, 2018
We are saddened to announce that Mayor Helps has done the deed. She took down the statue of our first prime minister - one of the fathers of Confederation. Canadian patriotism and pride have been unceremoniously dumped. It appears Ms. Helps is determined to start her own cultural revolution and political purge in 2018.
What will be next? Maybe she will discover some sordid detail from the life of Queen Victoria, and she will demand the renaming of her city. In this day and age, nothing is sacred - except for the "virtue signalling" of the left.

Ms. Lisa Helps, mayor of Victoria, B.C., has announced her plans to erase a vital part of our Canadian heritage. As early as Saturday, the long-standing statue of Sir John A. Macdonald, Canada's first prime minister, will be removed from its place of honour at the entrance to Victoria's City Hall.
This is no less than an act of treason!
Sir John A. Macdonald fills a unique place in our nation's history. His vital role in the formation of our country and its democratic institutions is unquestionable.
Of course, like all of us, he was not a perfect man. We may disagree with some of his ideas - especially when it comes to his opinions on first nations. But that does not mean a local mayor and her city council can unilaterally condemn the man and expunge his name from our collective identity.
Please join me in expressing our outrage and telling the Victoria City Council to keep the statue of John A.
