Is It Time To Remove Pierre Trudeau’s Name From All Government Buildings?


Those who dangerously call for removing John A. Macdonald’s name from government buildings are starting a process that won’t end until Canada’s history is wiped out. Be careful what you wish for.

There is increasing discussion about removing the name of Canada’s Founding Father Sir John A. Macdonald from schools and federal buildings.

This is being pushed by those taking political correctness and historical revisionism to insane and dangerous levels, and is part of an effort to eliminate our memory of our Canadian history.

As I’ve said, that effort must be opposed. Canadians must stand up for our history, and oppose those who seek to wipe it out.

That said, we know that those who want to remove Sir John A. Macdonald’s name won’t stop there.

So, let’s do an experiment and follow that “logic” all the way:

It’s time to remove Pierre Trudeau’s name from all government buildings.

Pierre Trudeau’s name is on schools, airports, and other government buildings. However, Pierre Trudeau was one of the driving forces behind a 1969 White Paper that called for eliminating any recognition of separate Indigenous rights.

By today’s standards, there is no doubt that Trudeau’s White Paper would be seen by many as a racist and oppressive document. If someone were to bring such a document forth in 2017, they would be widely denounced.

So, since we are judging historical figures by today’s standards, it’s obvious that Pierre Trudeau’s name must be removed from all federal buildings. After all, why should taxpayer money go towards buildings that are promoting his oppressive memory?

To go even further, we must ask whether Justin Trudeau should even be to be allowed to run for office?

After all, his name brings back the memory of Pierre Trudeau’s oppressive 1969 White Paper, and could be offensive to many Canadians. Perhaps Trudeau should do the politically correct thing and withdraw from public life to avoid bringing up negative historical memories.

Let’s leave the past alone

As you can imagine, I don’t actually think we should remove Pierre Trudeau’s names from public buildings, nor do I think Justin Trudeau should be banned from running for office. Pierre Trudeau was a horrible Prime Minister, and Justin needs to be massively defeated in 2019, but they are both part of Canada’s history just as Sir John A. Macdonald is.

Of course, the thought experiment we went into above is consistent with the thinking and the logic of those who are trying to take away recognition of John A. Macdonald.

Wiping out that historical memory is disgraceful, and deprives us of our shared Canadian history. We must discuss the good and the bad of the past openly and honestly – without destroying that history. John A. Macdonald’s name must stay on the schools and government buildings. All Canadians should stand together in defence of the memory of our history.

    1. Totally agree. Trudeau is and has been nothing but a menace to our Culture and Proud History. Leave Sir John A alone.

  1. when all the history is wiped out, as far as I am concerned if you can’t prove who he was and what he did, then it didn’t happen. How bout all of you?

  2. Great column Spencer but I think just maybe we could make an exception for PET and JT this one time and flush them both and start off fresh? Seriously though; great column.

  3. Another false equivalency. John A McDonald called for the extermination of the First Nations peoples. Trudeau did not do anything nearly that heinous. Not a fan of him or his son, but, come on, no comparison to John A.

    1. Different time Sandra and a different outlook at the world and our place in it.
      McDonald built Canada, PET started the ruination of Canada.

    2. WHO exactly from that time in history could you hold up as being of the moral character ppl are STILL saying dont exist today? We will have no one at all left if we keep arguing using the values of today on people who lived with completely different ones yesterday.
      Why can we not just see history and the people in it AS THEY WERE, why does a statue, building, restaurant, hotel… name etc HAVE to be based on agreeing with the person or issue behind the name?
      I do NOT agree with ANYTHING Trudeau is doing and in fact I believe he’s doing very harmful things and I think hes a racist and misogynist, but I wouldn’t deny his name on something to remember him historically. I dont agree with a lot of the Cathokic church but I dont want Catholics names banned from anything.
      There are good ppl in life and bad, bad ppl who still did good things and good ppl who did bad things, that’s called LIFE, REALITY, HISTORY… AND THE FUTURE we learn from it all. Why cant we just look at ppl from, and at history for its own sake and then use our own perception to judge it’s worth as I may find some or none in what you take from it.

  4. I agree Trudeau ‘s name must go. I feel the man like his son are nothing short of an embarrassment for all of Canada!

  5. Yes Pierre is the gargoyle faced symbol of oppression an Eastward black shadow that stealthily creeps across western lands an ever present eye to the East that reminds that Dark Liberal Lotds are watching!

  6. It is stupidity at it’s best if there is a best. It seems like those under thirty are seriously insane. Where does this stop. Personally I like the statutes and all that history entails.
    These brats need to be put in the armed forces and be taught to respect authority and the value of work. There, I had my say.
    Blessing to each of you.

  7. Thanks for this. I’ve been saying for several days now “where will political correctness end?” The sugar, coffee & tea and rum industries were founded thru slavery and colonialism. Should we close bakeries, Starbucks and the LCBO? What about cotton? Close all GAPs? Pigments and dyes? Will the closing of Benjamin Moore solve all woes? The train rails from sea to shining sea? Bye bye VIA. Our progress was built on some shitty stuff. Learn from history. Get informed. We did not get to where we are now by rainbows and unicorns.

    1. Its about bashing hysterical political correctness. If that evolved from liberalism, so be it. One can ignore history if they want to, but that doesn’t change it.

  8. Remove his name from anything positive about him. but do not remove the History of him being the most prominent Traitor in Canadian history. Lessons must be in Univercities to understand how he did this. Canadians must learn to see as to prevent Justin and future Tudeaus from ever entering Canadian Politics again. They just learn from each other more ways to destroy Canada and sell out to the Middle East.

  9. I find this completely ridiculous that these young people who know nothing about our history can make outrageous statements about our founding Fathers! Sir John A was our first Prime Minister, and it is what it is, taking down a statue doesn’t change it, so why do it. What about these Micmac Indians who are screaming Cornwallis wanted genocide? A 20th century term which does not apply to what actually occurred! The Micmac fought with the French against British citizens in the 1700s and killed innocent settlers, men woman and infants at the behest of a Catholic Priest, who was told by French authorities to mind his own business and just stick to converting the natives. Instead, thinking he was Napoleon incited the Indians to revolt against British authority in Nova Scotia and murder! He even threatened French settler who were living peacefully under Cornwallis at the time and threatened them with excommunication and the removal of their wives and children if they didn’t leave British territory. The Micmac screaming genocide, have succeeded in having Cornwallis’ statue removed! Every one sitting on that city council should be fired! This is an outrage!

  10. It is a very big mistake to remove historical figures from our collective history. Once you have done that then you have lost the foundation for judging the present and future histories. We have only been able to progress this far in society because we learned from our past, what is good and what is evil and we did this not by judging the past by today’s standards or morals but by using true morals and values that canada was founded upon. Those can be found in the bible; Canada was founded upon Judeo Christian morals and values, not those used by socialists and using moral equivalency. Remember, that those historical figures, relied upon the knowledge they had at that time and communication wasn’t as it is today, instant, but more often came after the decisions had been made. The moralists, socialists and revisionists all have perfect insight and usually make judgements based on false and imperfect knowledge, using today’s standards and morals. Lastly without a past to guide us and prevent us from making the same mistakes and worse mistakes, we are doomed to repeat them.

  11. Keep following the radicals like good little sheeple… Trudeau, Soros and other crazed leftists and elitists dream of a postnational state and having no cure identity – and very soon that will be so.
