U.S. madness has crossed the border: Canada is joining the “take down the statue” frenzy south of the border.
Sir John A. Macdonald lived in a different time with issues pertinent to that era. He had constituents to satisfy and business to settle. He did what was needed, what, in that time, he thought was best.
To take issue with decisions made in years gone by is fruitless; it changes nothing. Rather than mimic the madness in the States, do what the theme song of Frozen advocates and “let it go.”
What happened in bygone years cannot harm us now. To do otherwise is to display a pettiness that is as senseless and it is useless.
