I'm sure the different levels of governments own all kinds of statues, paintings, etc. of John A MacDonald, Hector-Louis Langevin, Lord Elgin, and others.

I say put them up for Dutch auction and put the profits towards the debt.

It's funny, Ontario's Doug Ford government contacted Victoria's mayor and offered to give their J. A. MacDonald statue a new home, but Victoria's city council was unwilling and have no plans to let the statue go.

It appears there is still some sentiment in these historic symbols, even with the post-modern SJW's ... your plan won't work.

Ontario government wants statue of Sir John A. Macdonald that Victoria has put into storage
