Default Wilmot to vote on pausing prime minister statue project over racism concerns

Wilmot to vote on pausing prime minister statue project over racism concerns

One community petition asks for statue removal, another wants to keep them


Jul 27, 2020

Councilors in Wilmot, Ont., will vote tonight on a motion to pause work on a series of statues of Canadian prime ministers a project critics say is offensive because it commemorates individuals responsible for Canada's racist policies against First Nations people.

The motion calls for council to delay any further investment in, or expansion of, the Prime Ministers Path project until a "sufficient, thorough, respectful and transparent consultation process" has taken place.
