Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth II Statues Torn Down in Canada
The police stood by and did nothing as people vandalized and tore down the statues. They arrested a man afterward who had nothing to do with it.
People tore down statues of Queen Victoria and Her Majesty The Queen in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
Protesters are angry about “the discovery of the remains of hundreds of children at former indigenous schools.” It took place on Canada Day, which is usually a day of pride.
They chanted, “No pride in genocide.”
The crowd cheered as people vandalized and toppled the Queen Victoria statue on legislative grounds in Winnipeg. They beheaded the statue and threw the head in the Assiniboine River.
Her Majesty had a smaller statue that stood near Queen Victoria’s statue.
Her Majesty is Canada’s head of state. Queen Victoria reigned during a time when Canada belonged to the British Empire.

Winnipeg Police Chief Danny Smyth confirmed they started an investigation:
“I’m disappointed. I know the intent of all the organizers involved was to have a peaceful demonstration, a show of solidarity … for the lost children of the residential schools. I don’t think anyone expected that to occur,” he said in a news conference on Friday.
The walk on Canada Day was held to protest the country’s treatment of Indigenous people under the colonial system — and in particular the system that forced children to leave their families and attend residential schools, where abuse was common and many died.
Police didn’t intervene when the statues were being toppled by a small group of people so as not to incite the crowd, Smyth said.
“Whenever you have a gathering crowd of more than a thousand people, it’s a delicate situation … it’s a judgment call based on what’s happening. There was no violence going on against other people,” he said.
“It’s a judgment call I support.”
Police will use security footage to investigate those who were involved as well as the small number of people who spat on officers and threw rocks and paint at police vehicles, Smyth said.
Police arrested one man. However, they do not believe he had anything to do with tearing down the statues. They charged him with “mischief for allegedly damaging a vehicle in the area and assaulting a police officer.”

When history isn’t taught and these low IQ types have no clue the best thing is to remove ALL statues.
I respectfully disagree. Removing all statues just accomplishes that goal for the low IQ unwashed and then they are fast onto the next goal in the destruction of Western culture and society. There is only one.course that I can see and that is forcible re-education of the mob.
Statues then books, people will be next.
The left, overwhelmingly, subscribes to the Pro-Choice religion, not limited to planned parent/hood.
I think they are celebrating that Harry and Meghan left Canada and moved to the US. “And take your great grandma with you.”
Also, churches, particularly Catholic ones, are being vandalized and/or set on fire across the country on a near-daily basis.
There has been little to action to put a stop to any of this, and government officials are rather silent, so all of this will likely continue for the foreseeable future.
Sounds as though they see a similar reaction to the destruction in our Pacific northwest by like-minded idiots.
4 wymyn posed for the camera that can be readily identified and arrested, but I doubt they will be.
I noticed that one seldom sees attractive people doing this sort of thing.
Amen !!!!!!!! Ugly to the bone!!!
wymyn: pronounced whim-whine.
Tear down all the statues – including that bronze monstrosity idolizing some drug addicted career criminal from Minneapolis who weezed out while resisting arrest last year.
No, tear down the no good, nobody statute, or maybe modify it to show his true nature.
Ironically, these morons will be the first ones killed or enslaved if they get their way.
These sick people would institute their own genocide if they could.
This does nothing but confirm the American “left” can export ignorance. Imagine a Canadian painting KKKanada on a statute of the Queen. Sure, Canada has a long and distinguish history with the Klan, right?
Like the BLM-inspired protests in Poland earlier this year. Poland??
There were riots in England over George Floyd. Apparently, they have no racism victims of their own over there.
It was more likely a case of monkey see monkey do.
I have spent quite a bit of time in Canada, they seem more woke than here, they are also destined to huge Muslim problems.
Can we send them Omar, Tlaib, Ellison and Pressley for their wokedom?
I recall that Canada welcomed former slaves from the U.S. Once they reached Canada, they were beyond the reach of fugitive slave laws.
But the Fugitive Slave Laws were before the war; the Democrats didn’t form the Klan to keep the freed slaves down until after they had lost the war.
Today, Trudeau makes a big public show about welcoming refugees… then, when the rubber actually hits the road, his tune changes.
If Obama had only invaded Canada after he claimed to have been to 57 states….
I mean, they changed the RS71 to SR 71 for Johnson 🙂
No, they didn’t.
According to the following article it was a “recording stenographer” who transposed the letters. … An entertaining quip nonetheless.
Raise a couple of generations of kids to respect nothing, this is what you get.
Justin “Soy Boy” Trudeau was not immediately available for comment.
He’s busy demanding the Pope come and personally apologize
What “statues” will they seek to erect in their place ? …
What “tyrants” and the descendants thereof will achieve comparable status ? … And, how many centuries / millennia before those “statues” are torn down ?
I look at the picture and know sadly, now again “honor killings” are soon to be deemed to have a place in western societies. …
And, how long before “women” become just chattel again ?
They’re trying to larp at doing anything as profound as the people to torn down the Berlin Wall, or tore down the statues of Stalin, Lenin and the Romanian folks.
And I suspect this is also a certain amount of payback from the hard left for their those idols down.
And Canada takes the lead in a race to the abyss.
Protesters are angry about “the discovery of the remains of hundreds of children at former indigenous schools.”
As the resident Canadian commentator, I want to address this. It is 100% a lie. No bodies or graves have been found anywhere.
What has happened is one band hired a ground-penetrating radar expert to perform a preliminary survey. If you’re not familiar with GPR, it absolutely does not have the resolution necessary to determine anything beyond “the ground isn’t smooth and homogeneous below this spot.” Could be a rock, a badger burrow, or possibly an unmarked grave; no way to tell without an excavation. What the bands have found is nothing more than n squiggles on a GPR screen, where n is whatever number they can make up that’s bigger than the last band. The first band got away with the outrageous lie that every squiggle was a body in an unmarked grave, and since they got away with it every other band is pulling the same stunt.
Absolutely no excavations have been performed at all, at any residential school. The claims that every -or any – squiggle is an unmarked grave are completely unsubstantiated. This is 100% native bands in Canada adopting the Trayvon Martin – Michael Brown – Eric Garner playbook that reality is what the activist says it is, facts and evidence be damned. And based on that they’re trying to cancel the Queen and the Catholic Church.
@daniel_ream, That is astounding. Can you point me to a source on this? Not that I don’t believe you. I need a source to point this out to other people who were gulled like me. I totally took the truth of the story for granted. Damn! You really can’t believe a word you read.
I would like to believe this, but I have seen a news item specifically claiming the location of the corpse of a three-year-old… and that’s pretty a specific claim if no one has yet done any shoveling.
I wonder how many of these vandals who tore down the statues would work as a mechanic during the Second World War as then-Princess Elizabeth did. Yes, the current Queen of England is among what’s left of the Greatest Generation that defeated the most monstrous evil the world has ever known.
The answer is “none” because, to do the kind of work Princess Elizabeth did, they would have to put on WORK CLOTHING, a repulsive concept for “woke” Leftists to begin with, and then handle TOOLS such as wrenches, screwdrivers, and so on. About all they know about a hammer is that they can use it to smash a store window, a police car, or a statue–the concept of building something by using nails to connect wooden boards is totally alien to them.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/history/2019/06/04/trump-said-queen-elizabeth-was-mechanic-during-wwii-is-that-real/ for “Betsy the Riveter” Her late husband Prince Philip also was in the war, in the Royal Navy.
Canada may have become so ‘civilized’ it no longer has the will to protect its civilization and culture.
None of them would have done so because they believe all wars are wrong and evil, and the UK should have let Hitler do whatever he liked rather than go to war against him.
Challenge to all Canadians. Can you out do us in this type of behavior?

I’ll take a Tim Horton’s — or a Second Cup — over a Starbucks any day.
