A compromise on Cornwallis?

Posted on Thu, May 19, 2016 at 4:00 AM

Cornwallis: Built Halifax personally with his own two hands, or racist scalp-collecting maniac—depending on who you talk to. Whatever to do with the statue? Enough! Time for a compromise. Take a hacksaw, Jebediah Springfield style, and remove a few inches just above the eyebrows. Let people peer down into that dark cranial cavity, and have it serve as a reminder of the actions he took to colonize our prosperous, egalitarian city. Or make it into a birdbath. Whatever. —#fuckclosetracists
