Vandals deface Sir John A. Macdonald statue

11 Jan

It should be obvious as to who is responsible. Free-loading “Native” cry babies.

On what would have been his 198th birthday, Sir John A. Macdonald’s statue in Kingston, Ontario has been defaced by vandals.

Red paint was spilled across the statue and the the words ‘murderer’, ‘colonizer’, and ‘this is stolen land’ written on the monument to Canada’s founding father.

Tensions have risen in recent weeks between First Nations leaders and the federal government. Yesterday, Derek Nepinak, the grand chief of the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs, told reporters that “(t)he Idle No More movement has the people and the numbers that can bring the Canadian economy to its knees. We have the warriors that are standing up now that are willing to go that far. So we’re not here to make requests. We’re here to demand attention and to demand an end to 140 years of colonial rule.”

Hundreds more protests, flash mobs, and blockades are planned today as part of Idle No More.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper is slated is slated to meet with First Nations leaders on Parliament Hill for a four-hour working meeting.
