The statue to Canada's founding father was vandalised on the eve of the federal election.

Quebec vandals strike again

The now over a century old Montreal statues to a couple of famous historical figures have to be among of the cleanest around. That’s because they have been a regular target of socialist, leftist vandals who spray paint on them in protest, requiring them to be cleaned, seemingly at least a couple of times per year now.

Again last night the statue of Canada’s founding father, Sir John A Macdonald first unveiled in 1895, was attacked by a group accusing Sir John A Macdonald of various “crimes” against First Nations, and other ethnic groups.

The statue to Queen Victoria located in front a McGill University building, was also vandalised in the dead of night and photographed by the person or person responsible.

The statue to a young Queen Victoria, 1900, which is placed at McGill University was also vandalised apparently under the auspices of a similar group claiming a number of crimes including torture, forced famines, and mass murder and others.

Usually the individuals, group, or groups, use red paint to simulate their accusation that the country’s principle founder, and the former Queen  have “blood on their hands”.

This time they use blue paint, the colour associated with Canada’s Conservative party, to demonstrate their opposition to the current Conservative party leader and allegations he wants to do more to honour Sir John.

The individual or likely individuals involved say the statues should be removed.

Netiquette »

When you express your personal opinion in an online forum, you must be as courteous as if you were speaking with someone face-to-face. Insults and personal attacks will not be tolerated. To disagree with an opinion, an idea or an event is one thing, but to show disrespect for other people is quite another. Great minds don’t always think alike—and that’s precisely what makes online dialogue so interesting and valuable.

Netiquette is the set of rules of conduct governing how you should behave when communicating via the Internet. Before you post a message to a blog or forum, it’s important to read and understand these rules. Otherwise, you may be banned from posting.

  1. RCInet.ca’s online forums are not anonymous. Users must register, and give their full name and place of residence, which are displayed alongside each of their comments. RCInet.ca reserves the right not to publish comments if there is any doubt as to the identity of their author.
  2. Assuming the identity of another person with intent to mislead or cause harm is a serious infraction that may result in the offender being banned.
  3. RCInet.ca’s online forums are open to everyone, without regard to age, ethnic origin, religion, gender or sexual orientation.
  4. Comments that are defamatory, hateful, racist, xenophobic, sexist, or that disparage an ethnic origin, religious affiliation or age group will not be published.
  5. In online speak, writing in ALL CAPS is considered yelling, and may be interpreted as aggressive behaviour, which is unpleasant for the people reading. Any message containing one or more words in all caps (except for initialisms and acronyms) will be rejected, as will any message containing one or more words in bold, italic or underlined characters.
  6. Use of vulgar, obscene or objectionable language is prohibited. Forums are public places and your comments could offend some users. People who use inappropriate language will be banned.
  7. Mutual respect is essential among users. Insulting, threatening or harassing another user is prohibited. You can express your disagreement with an idea without attacking anyone.
  8. Exchanging arguments and opposing views is a key component of healthy debate, but it should not turn into a dialogue or private discussion between two users who address each other without regard for the other participants. Messages of this type will not be posted.
  9. Radio Canada International publishes contents in five languages. The language used in the forums has to be the same as the contents we publish or in one of the two official languages, English or French. The usage of other languages, with the exception of some words, is forbidden. Messages that are off-topic will not be published.
  10. Making repetitive posts disrupts the flow of discussions and will not be tolerated.
  11. Adding images or any other type of file to comments is forbidden. Including hyperlinks to other websites is allowed, as long as they comply with netiquette. Radio Canada International  is in no way responsible for the content of such sites, however.
  12. Copying and pasting text written by someone else, even if you credit the author, is unacceptable if that text makes up the majority of your comment.

    The vandals are unable to create anything, unlike John A MacDonald who created a modern state which has common law, freedom of language and religion and speech. The same post-modern Marxist extremist who accuse him of genocide ( Preposterously inaccurate) are those who would extinguish the very rights which his government enshrined, The vandals wish to de-platform opponents by repressing their freedom to speak. Canada’s freedoms are the envy of the world, and they have permitted a relatively small population to become a leading member of the G7. Immigrants line up to enter Canada. Thank you Sir John.
