Kingston pub dropping Sir John A. Macdonald namesake after indigenous requests

A pub in a building where Sir John A. Macdonald once had his law office is dropping a reference to Canada’s first prime minister from its name after receiving requests to do so from members of the Indigenous community.

The Scottish pub in Kingston, Ont., once known as “Sir John’s Public House,” will now be called “The Public House,” its owner said, noting that a new sign was being erected Tuesday.

What a stupid move.
