Perhaps, since Indigenous members of the family have said they would like the statue recontextualized rather than hidden, the mayor could take this opportunity to announce that statue's new location. Yes, she got the media hype for her campaign launch and achieved her goal of upsetting a lot of people. And the cynical, exploitive gimmick worked. Victoria voters love her Trump-style approach. We get it. But now maybe lets bring him back in a way that is respectful to everyone.

56% of Victoria voters did not like her approach.

Interesting that the people who like to ***** and moan about the CoV not sticking in their lane are enjoying a useless proclamation by a previous federal government when they could have focused that time on things that mattered.

Actually national 'day's' and recognition of the nation's founder are well within the purview of the federal government.  Nice try

And they do about as much as when the city sends letters to oil companies.  It's all a waste of time.

Who's time is wasted by having a day dedicated to something?

Staff, leg clerks, drafters.  People who have better things to do like laws that actually affect people.

So then city proclamations should stop in their entirety as well if it is poor form for the Feds to do so
