The defacing of a statue of Canada's first prime minister is an apparent political act on the 198th birthday of Sir. John A. McDonald.
The statue in Kingston, a large city just a short distance from us, was splattered with red paint and the words "murderer" and "colonizer".
Our sympathies to the people of Kingston who are proud of their city's heritage and don't deserve this kind of crass act.
