POLL: Canadians Oppose Far-Left Scheme To Erase Sir John A. Macdonald

Far-left SJW’s want Canada’s first Prime Minister to be erased from buildings and national landmarks, but a new poll shows fewer than 1/3rd agree.

Politically-correct social justice warriors often seem to have lots of influence.

Yet, whenever their schemes are put to the test of public opinion, it turns out that a clear majority of Canadians oppose them.

That’s certainly the case when it comes to far-left efforts to remove Canada’s first Prime Minister Sir John A. Macdonald’s name from buildings and landmarks across the country.

According to a Forum Research poll, just 28% support the removal, while 44% want his name to stay. Another 26% say they don’t have an opinion either way.

Canadian history must be defended

Everywhere we look, we can see that far-left social justice warriors (supported by the elites), are trying to erase Canada’s history and national identity.

They refuse to see that we can acknowledge both the good and the bad of our national founders, without erasing them from history.

In keeping with their effort to make Canada a “post-national state,” the elites want to judge every historical figure by the standards of today, and erase symbols of our past.

Yet, if we erase our past, we will also erase our national recognition of the chain of events that made Canada what we are today, and we will erase our ability to understand our present and our future.

We must not let that happen. We must protect our history and our national identity from those who want to destroy it.

This could be a good thing. If John A. gets erased, then I will be the first to nominate that any schools and roads named after either Chretien or Trudeau also get erased.

To reciprocate how about removing any reference to the leftist Pierre Elliott Trudeau, such as the Montreal airport. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

Isn’t that just reprehensible, to name Dorval after Trudeau, when it was Mirabell, that WHITE ELEPHANT, thst was his pet project! He forced that airport down Canadians’ throats, confiscating hundreds of thousands of hetares of land… and WHO footed the bill for that?? The TAXPAYER!!!

Can you imagine the uproar if any reference to MLK in the USA or PET here were to be eliminated.

Canada had MK ULTRA where they erased the memories of disenfranchised people or those seeking medical health. We didn’t choose this program the Government did. Some files of that history I think they erased. Then they changed the words of the National Anthem by Robert Stanley Weir (1856-1926) Every child growing up in Canada sang this at school and likely event they attended throughout their growing years. It is embedded in our psyche. Now they want to start erasing our past history…the culture of our country that we learned in our history lessons and seen referenced many times in our… Read more »
