Globe&Mail on statues and reconciliation in Kingston

I recently noted here an impressive public event in Kingston, in which Charlotte Gray, Lee Maracle, and I were invited to discuss what to do about John A. and his statues, before a lively and engaged audience of some 500 at Kingston's Grand Theatre.

Turns out we got the Globe's Eric Andrew-Gee thinking about it.  (The Globe has an active paywall, but this opened for me.)  Like him, I was impressed by the range and seriousness of the City of Kingston's project to assess its statuary and its responsibilities.  The presentations Lee, Charlotte and I gave were not a one-shot thing, but part of an ongoing consultation. We all -- audience, speakers, stakeholders, city --benefited from that.
