Regarding the letter on Nov 19 from Rick Revelle re the Macdonald statue (Leave Macdonald on Main street as a reminder):
I was touched by the openness of Mr. Revelle’s view, especially in light of his ancestry and the pain and humiliation suffered by Indigenous people.
I agree that hiding the statue away does nothing but ignore history even if it isn’t the one we’d prefer.
Perhaps a statue of a proud Indigenous warrior could be added with text that speaks of their survival despite Mr. Macdonald’s wrongs.
Thank you Mr. Revelle.
