‘Happy Sir John A. Macdonald Day’

Despite the ongoing attempts of the racist Aboriginal Industry and its foolish ‘allies’ to diminish his accomplishments and demean him personally, fair-minded Canadians – and that’s most of us – will take a moment to give thanks to the man who, more than any other, stubbornly kept pushing for his vision of what became Canada.

“Sir John A., in my opinion, is the ‘godfather of genocide’.”

“A group of ‘indigenous’ protesters in Ontario is taking credit for chasing the name of Canada’s first prime minister off the name of a local pub.

“It’s a huge victory for us,”
said Theresa Eagles, a member of ‘Idle No More Kingston/Katarokwi’.
“There’s {sic} been a lot of people who agree Sir John A. needs to be in a museum. Not in public for everyone to celebrate.”

“This week, the name of ‘Sir John’s Public House’ in Kingston was shortened to ‘The Public House’.

“The owners said it was because of the group’s protests and their desire to honour the ‘spirit of {one-way} reconciliation’ as the country grapples with the {partly} negative legacy of the Indian residential school system.

“A system Sir John A. Macdonald is credited with supporting and enforcing.

“One of the reasons that we choose to attack symbols like John A. in Canada, as well as many other approaches to the activist work we do here, is because there’s these symbols of Canada (that) are symbols of racism and symbols of our ‘genocide’ and our oppression,”
said Krista Lukes, another member of ‘Idle No More’.
“He’s hugely celebrated here.”

“The name change, which is getting cheers and jeers on social media, is one of many ways ‘indigenous’ people want to build a more inclusive community, Lukes added.

“In Kingston, it’s a long fight. We’ve been protesting the celebration of John A. for five years.”

Fans of Macdonald usually raise a glass publicly by his statue in town as his birthday is celebrated this week. Lukes said that event was cancelled last year after her group set up a demonstration.

“The way such monuments are being viewed is under debate following protests and violence in the United States. Macdonald, as a founder of the Dominion of Canada, has a legacy associated with treaties, residential schools and the ‘Indian Act’.

“Sir John A., in my opinion, is the ‘godfather of genocide’,”
added Eagles.
“The fact that Sir John A.’s pub has changed their name, I believe, is a huge step in the right direction for us.”

“The activists now have their sights set on getting rid of the Macdonald statue and a train marked in his honour across from City Hall. However, they are expecting opposition like they saw in September.

“Lukes said the pub called the police when they protested a drinking promotion in Macdonald’s name.

“As long as symbols of our oppression are celebrated as a source of pride, we’re going to continue to have a lot of work to do to fight racism,”
she said.

Macdonald is considered one of Kingston’s heroes and the pub reflects that. The building served as his law office from 1849-60.

“Memorabilia and menu items in his names will remain, the owners said.”

“Controversy is brewing over the legacy of Sir John A. Macdonald and whether elementary schools in Ontario should bear his name.

The ‘Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario’ is pushing to remove the name of Canada’s first Prime Minister from a handful of schools across the province

“The ETFO said using Sir John A. Macdonald’s name creates an ‘unsafe environment’ for kids to learn and work in because Macdonald was a supporter of residential schools back in the 1800’s… {What hysterical, immature nonsense…}

“Over the years, a number of protests have been held in Kingston during Sir John A. Macdonald celebrations. The {racist} group, “Idle No More”, has participated. Member, Natasha Stirrett, said the peaceful demonstrations are meant to highlight the Prime Minister’s role in establishing residential schools.

“We wanted a peaceful demonstration that raised awareness and builds communities in terms of having conversations of why it is not OK to celebrate genocidal historical figures,”
said Stirrett.

“Schools aren’t the only facilities to bear Sir John A. Macdonald’s name. Buildings and highways are also named after him and he’s featured on the $10 bill.

“It’s unclear whether the call by the elementary teachers union will influence school boards to consider stripping his name from schools.”

“Three years ago, vandals also defaced the Macdonald statue, located in City Park, by tossing red paint on it and spray painting the message “This is stolen land” and the words “murderer” and “colonizer” on its base.”
