Statues of British queens toppled in Canada – BBC News

As anger in Canada grows over the deaths of indigenous children at residential schools, a prominent statue of Queen Victoria has been torn down by protesters.

The protesters cheered as the statue at the legislature in Manitoba’s capital Winnipeg was toppled on Thursday.

A smaller statue of UK monarch Queen Elizabeth II was also upended nearby.

The toppling came on Canada Day, which marks the country’s founding by British colonies.
