Sadly, many public statues do not show us history for " what is was, warts and all," but rather a distorted image of it. Let us be clear: removing a statue is not removing history, it is removing a statement about history. When statues of Saddam Hussein were torn down in Iraq, no one thought they were saying he hadn’t happened, but rather that he shouldn’t have been honored. For the same reason, there are no Hitler statues in Germany. The same could be applied to those in Revolutionary War...

When I see a sign from our past I always like to dig deeper into its History. Bearing in mind that History of any conflict is always written by the Victors. If we don't see "Doorways" into our past then we'll look no further. Man's inhumanity to Man is never far away and needs to be kept in our thoughts. Maybe a better option would be to add more Statues of Famous folks of Non-White Descent. Balance the books - Don't burn them.

Glockenspiel is the German word for a musical chime. These are common in Europe, much less so in North America. DrFumblefinger was a little surprised to find one in the relatively small prairie city of Regina.
