Historical revisionists want Cornwallis gone

Regional council has voted to put together an expert panel to advise it on whether Edward Cornwallis’ name should be removed from municipal properties.

Councillor Shawn Cleary introduced the motion and said we’re building a new relationship with the Indigenous community in Canada and he thinks we need to do that in Halifax as well.

There have also been calls in the past to rename the Cornwallis River.
