Watch Victoria Reconciliation Dialogue #4: Sir John A. Macdonald in Conversation

Dialogue #4: Sir John A. Macdonald in Conversation

Thank you to those who were able to join us for Victoria Reconciliation Dialogue #4: Sir John A. Macdonald in Conversation on March 2 at the Victoria Conference Centre.  

Guided by Dr. Cindy Blackstock and Mayor Lisa Helps, the conversation opened with a performance by the Lekwungen Traditional Dancers, followed by a theatrical presentation by The Canadian Heritage Arts Society to introduce the complex life and work of Sir John A. Macdonald.

Participants were asked to consider the politics of, and appropriate context for, monuments to controversial historical figures, including the City of Victoria's Sir John A. Macdonald statue.

The purpose of the conversation was not to determine or debate the future home of the statue, but rather to help inform Council decision-making on next steps.
