Montreal. Quebec. Demonstrators took down the statue of John A. Macdonald today in downtown Montreal, at the end of the demonstration to defund the police.
Originally published by Montreal Counter Info.
Macdonald was Canada’s first prime minister. He is responsible for the creation of the residential school system, the adoption of laws aiming to exclude people of Chinese origin, and the hanging of Métis martyr Louis Riel. A symbol of the colonialism and racism that persist in this country, the Macdonald statue had already been vandalized with paint many times. Further details will follow.
