B.C.’s historical plaques trigger SJW

‘Settler, please:’ B.C.’s racist historical signs have got to go, argues archaeologist

A Kamloops archaeologist is making the case that many of B.C.’s historical “stop of interest” plaques, which in most cases extol the achievements of European settlers, need a total rewrite.

“There are so many that don’t explicitly say anything racist, but the implication is that all the land was here for the taking and it’s only ever been prosperity and good times since then,” said Joanne Hammond. The plaques are the responsibility of B.C.’s Ministry of Transportation and can be found at points of historical interest throughout the province.
