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.

Spencer, I have to say you have done yourself proud with this one, and definitely in tune with another ‘idiotic social’ Reformation attitude of the maniacal left.

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

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?

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.

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… Read more »

I agree. Leave the statues. However, I’d like a list on any statue of accomplishments……..maybe quotes? All of it…….both sides can add stuff?

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.

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.

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

Removing indigenous rights was not racist in itself – by definition, giving any rights based on race is racist. We are blinded by today’s “standards” – which is political correctness not to offend anyone – even those who believe they should have race-based special rights.
If one race has special rights, than it places the other races at a disadvantage, which is racism.
Everyone, regardless or gender, race, colour, and so on, should be equal under the law!

Yes, P.E. Trudeau’s name SHOULD be removed from ALL government buildings!!! He had single-handedly begun the turning of Canada into a globalist communist state, deeply sunk in debt, and began the systematic destruction of Canada, which his disgraceful traitor of a son is completing! As just one example, Trudeau really pushed his arrogance, expropriating 90,000 acres of prime farm land and private properties in Quebec to “realize” his delusional deam of creating an international airport, which Quebec or Canada NEVER needed! That was done at the expense to the Canadian Taxpayer! Most of that land was NEVER used. The government… Read more »

The first res. school in Canada was established in 1830 by Anglicans, Methodists & R.C religious groups –Canadas confederation was 1867 and only involved eastern provinces(other than Nfld) and ,upper and lower Canada(ont & Que)-that was 37 years AFTER the first res. school was established and that was when Sir John A became Prime Minister of Canada. B.C. originally wanted to join the Usa as the Rockies separated it from the rest of Sir John A’s idea of a united Canada sea-sea!! Sir John A. promised them a railway and then they joined the rest of Canada, Actually-BC planned to… Read more »

Pierre Trudeau belongs to the “Dead Old White Man” category the left despises so much. It’s a no brainer; any visual reminder of him must be obliterated.

How about removing all Totem poles from southern British Columbia since Totem poles originated in Haida Gwaii and the Haida’s were a war like people that invaded other tribes, killed and took slaves. Indigenous peoples are far better off now with modern technology, housing, transportation and medicine, a legal system they can use and parliamentary democracy than they were 500 years ago. European influence has not been all bad.
