Global News published this video item, entitled “Sir John A. Macdonald statue removed from Kingston’s City Park” – below is their description.
Kingston city council voted 12-1 in favour of removing the statue of Sir John A. McDonald from City Park.
This decision comes in the wake of the horrific discovery of 215 Indigenous children found in unmarked burial sites outside a former residential school in Kamloops, B.C., a school system that Macdonald was instrumental in facilitating.
The statue was officially taken down by city crews at approximately 9 a.m. on Friday, and is being carried away from City Park on a flatbed truck. Darryn Davis has more.
