Statues across the nation are being vandalized.
A statue of Pierre Elliot Trudeau has been vandalized in the city of Vaughan.
Vandals painted blackface on the statue.
It’s a clear allusion to Justin Trudeau’s multiple blackface episodes.
You can watch video of the police discussing the matter:

As funny as this may be on one level, it is still unfortunate to see a statue vandalized.
Of course, this wouldn’t have happened if Justin Trudeau hadn’t been such a total hypocrite, lecturing everyone else while holding himself to a far lower standard.
That said, Canada’s history should be respected, and that should apply even to statues of historical figures we may dislike or disagree with. We should defend statues of Pierre Elliot Trudeau, just as we should defend statues of John A. Macdonald.
