As I said, I'm not saying don't demand accountability, and for those that lived it they will rightly feel pain and anger whenever new details are brought to light, and sometimes trauma never goes away.  People wronged deserve justice.  But your solution is f*** Canada as an institution in its entirety, which is totally illogical and not at all helpful, and in fact counter-productive and in many ways despicable.  Feel free to move to a country that doesn't have blood on its hands, it simply doesn't exist. If it wasn't for Canada and Britain we might all be speaking German, and if it wasn't for Sir John we'd probably be saluting our POTUS Donald Trump the last 4 years, and all of this goes for aboriginals too.  Canada is filled with faults and triumphs like any country.

There are many people on the hard left like you that only sees the negatives in our society and governments, and are doing their best to destroy Western Civilization before our very eyes because of all this guilt and self-hatred they have.  I know this because I used to feel it too.  It's a cancer. Just because something isn't perfect doesn't mean you have to destroy it, or that it also doesn't have positive aspects. Taking down statues of Sir John is fine, but we need to be careful about the new narratives we create about our history because they can easily contain half-truths and crooked moralizing like the old false narratives we've been sold.

You seem to be labouring under the mistaken impression that this is about correcting history and not addressing the ongoing legacy of historical wrongs. You cannot move on from the past when the past is still alive here in the present.

Also, couching every revelation about past atrocities with "but what about the good things" is a form of denialism.
