Let’s Shut Down the John A. Macdonald Parkway on September 30, 2022

I give notice today, to the Government of Canada and to the National Capital Commission (NCC) that commencing September 30, 2022 (a year from now) I will lead a walk on the John A. Macdonald Parkway, going from the War Museum to Parkdale Ave. and then back again to the museum. The walk, protesting the parkway’s name, will become an annual event continuing until such a time in the future when Macdonald’s name is finally removed from the parkway.

Macdonald has the deaths of thousands of children tarnishing his wailing soul. He set out to commit genocide against Human Beings who had done no harm to him nor to his loved ones. He believed that by erasing the culture and spiritual purpose of this resource-rich country’s original inhabitants, he would forevermore be regarded as a hero to Canada’s future generations of white-skinned citizens. The people of Canada were in line with Macdonald’s plan of genocide for a long, long time. The British monarchy, happy as larks with what their man in one of the colonies was doing, even knighted him for his efforts! NO MORE! The first prime minister of Canada is finally being recognized for the monster he really was. Anyone who has anything to do with the deaths of thousands of children is not a human being in my definition of what a human being is. A human being, male or female, old or young, black, brown, red or white, protects children from those who would torment them to their deaths. Only a monster would go about his business as if all was well and good after being told (see Dr. Peter Bryce book ‘A National Crime’) that thousands of children were dying in Canada’s Residential Schools. He fired Dr. Peter Bryce from his job as Chief Medical Officer for bringing the news of the deaths to the Canadian public, so determined was he to continue in his plan of genocide. Macdonald’s heart might have pumped blood through his veins and kept him from collapsing onto the ground, dead as a door nail, but it was not a heart like the one beating in my body nor like that pounding in yours.

The walk, planned for September 30th, 2022, will need your support. Let’s work together towards getting at least a thousand people walking with us next year in memory of the children who didn’t survive Macdonald’s Residential Schools. Make a commitment to it. You have a year to prepare! All activists and defenders of justice are welcome to join us. You can join us in a motorized wheelchair, riding a bicycle, roller skates or with the power of your own feet. Come in your traditional attire (jingle dress, shawl dancer etc.), dance, bring your drum or rattle. Sing songs while you are walking if you wish to. All I ask is that you come with a good heart and with a vision that Macdonald’s name will be removed from the parkway because you took part in a walk.

I am 100% certain that the first prime minister of Canada will have his name removed from the parkway at some point. Will it be next year? Maybe not! It will occur however. Young Canadians in high schools get it, so do university and college students, only Stephen Harper and John Baird types do not.

In the meantime, let’s swamp Justin Trudeau and the NCC with letters demanding the name change. WRITE THAT LETTER!!

Keep the Circle Strong,

    Great idea, Albert! What time!
    They are renaming the SJAM Winter Trail to the Kichi Sibi Winter Trail. What is taking them so long to rename the Parkway?

    These causes of sorrows, sadness, deaths and generational memories from all forms of abuse, neglect and evil will see the day of reckoning. The day will come. Many, many white-skinned people are not ok with the way this was allowed, to continue for so many generations. As a senior who grew up in Edmonton, I have no words for the cover up during my generation, and that growing up in 1950-60’s we as children were living in a time, where more could and should have been done. Our politicians, the churches and adults were hiding by avoidance. They knew the real stories, they knew. White immigrants were the first to arrive in Canada, yes, however since then many immigrants from all races have made homes in Canada. I would like to see the questions on the Citizenship process speak to these issues, so all races who immigrant will know. Take off the political and useless questions, and have questions about how to live in Canada and show respect to you the first people. The times that began these horrific events can not be reversed. They CAN BE CHANGED to educate in schools, to new immigrants, and to all people. It must start with the Government, as that is where it began. The churches and religions, have to start the process, and stop hiding. That does not work for the generation of peoples moving forward. I will honour Orange shirt day Sept 30th with my grandchildren, and tell them why they need to know the past and the present of these evil leaders. As Albert Einstein once said, “The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.”

      Dear Sharon,

      I am tremendously moved by your sentiments. You have many good ideas which I might promote but will give you credit if I do so. This great land needs more Sharon energy!

      All the best,

    Hi Albert, big event, what time?

  4. Yes! I’ll join you on September 30, 2022.
    I’ll carry the vision of McDonald’s name being removed for the year.

  5. Craig Bullett says:

    Albert, you shared your time and wisdom with some of my colleagues in Quebec last fall. I truly appreciate meeting you (though virtually) and hearing your ideas to respectfully act on changing the Parkway’s name back to honor the people who are the original custodians of this land. Please keep me informed of details for this event. I will support you as long as it takes to make the change.

    That name needs to go sooner than later
