Default Orillia mayor says new monument of Samuel de Champlain should reflect 'good, bad and ugly' of Canada's past

Orillia mayor says new monument of Samuel de Champlain should reflect 'good, bad and ugly' of Canada's past

The original statue was taken down in 2015, and included a plaque that indicated it was erected to 'commemorate the advent into Ontario of the white race'

OTTAWA — A city in central Ontario is calling for the return of an iconic monument to explorer Samuel de Champlain that has been a centrepiece in the city’s laid-back waterfront landscape for nearly a century.

Parks Canada, which owns the structure and the land it once sat on, has delayed its return for more than a year as a working group studied what to do in response to complaints about how it portrays Indigenous people.
