The continued attempts of the Trudeau government to erect an anti-communist monument in Ottawa have been opposed by Canadians right from the start. It has been one deception after another as the organization, Tribute to Liberty, failed to raise the funds to cover the cost of the monument which was projected at first to be $1.5 million.
A National Capital Commission spokesperson recently stated that the cost of the monument is now $7.5 million. Six million dollars is coming from public funds after Chrystia Freeland included an additional $4 million in this spring’s budget to complete the monument.
