Licia Corbella: Is Trudeau worried about cancel culture coming after his father’s legacy?


It was a relief when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau finally denounced Monday the tearing down of the 125-year-old statue of Canada’s first prime minister, Sir John A. Macdonald, on Saturday. “We are a country of laws and we are a country that needs to respect those laws, even as we seek to improve and change them, and those kind of acts of vandalism are not advancing the path toward greater justice and equality in this country,” Trudeau said. By the time Trudeau spoke out, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney had offered to install the statue at the legislature in Edmonton should Montreal or Quebec no longer want it. Thankfully, however, the mayor of Montreal, the premier of Quebec and even former leaders of the separatist Parti Quebecois also quickly decried the act of vandalism by a mob of protesters.
