A second plaque has been installed to replace a bronze statue of Canada’s first Prime Minister Sir John A. Macdonald after it was vandalized shortly after the removal of the statue over the weekend. People walk by the plaque daily as it stands in front of City Hall Victoria, B.C., on Tuesday, August 14, 2018. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Chad Hipolito

Letter: No harm in keeping John A. MacDonald statue


Leave John A. MacDonald statue standing. John did a lot of good. He started Canada. Wow, thanks John A. He made a few mistakes along the way – who hasn’t .

Hang loose Art Green, you have the power to stop this nonsense.

P.S. Don’t tail gate when driving. 60% of accidents are caused by driving too close to the vehicle in front of you.
