Is Elevating Sir John A. Macdonald Really Worth It? Hitting the Reset Button on Canada's Founding Narrative in the Classroom
Gaudry, Adam
Canadian Social Studies, v49 n1 p7-10 2017
This special issue of "Canadian Social Studies," entitled "Monumental Mistakes? Confronting Difficult Pasts," has brought together a diverse range of scholars offering insights into discussions regarding removing or altering monuments, buildings, and other reminders of difficult histories. The editors have requested that contributors submit short essays that could serve as accessible prompts for classroom and broader public conversations and inquiries. In this article, Adam Gaudry calls for Canadians to show their government how as a society they might amplify Indigenous voices to form a basis for more respectful relations on this land.
