Rest in Peace, Sir John ...
Far from sight and memory.
Sad that the so-called "Father of Canada" should get his symbolic comeuppance on Father's Day weekend -- in Kingston at least.
Other cities would like to see the back of him as well: CTV June 2020
In my personal opinion, it's long overdue - and I'm not connected with any organization.
The man was a nasty, cold-blooded, crude, self-aggrandising racist, and a drunken womanizer.
He contaminated the land on which we now dwell with a terrible legacy of bloodshed and unconscionable abuse of her Indigenous Peoples, and his legacy continues today in more subtle, but never-ending ways, despite the Trudeau mystique of non-racist, all-inclusive, "sunny ways".
CanadaHistory.com: Canada's Father Figure:
When Louis Riel tried desperately to negotiate with the government on behalf of his people, Macdonald sent in the brute force of the military and the Mounties.
The Mounties were glorified in movies, such as this one starring Shirley Temple, telling the story of how the big bad "Indians" had the gall not to want railroad trains screaming through their lands -- and how the glorious Mounties rode in to "save the day".
Today, the RCMP can't even figure out how thousands of young Indigenous women have disappeared, and the rest of the population is only now awakening to what happened to Indigenous children at the hands of "Christians" -- despite these words of Christ:
Matthew 18:6: “But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”
Riel was driven almost mad with shock and incredulity that the "white" invaders could be so destructive and so disrespectful of the original dwellers on these lands.
See VIDEO "I have nothing but my heart and I have given it long ago to my country."
Where is the statue of the man who cared so much about Canada's first peoples?
I'll never, ever forget Bruno Gerussi on the stage of KCVI retelling/reliving the tragic story of Louis Riel who wanted only justice and peace.
But, as I've said before:
I don't mean to harsh the mellow of Father's Day, but I like to think there are good, caring fathers out there who would agree.
By the way -- I've never known a Freemason who wasn't addicted to alcohol.
What's that all about, eh?
