CALEDONIA—The head of the Egerton Ryerson statue torn down during a demonstration outside Ryerson University last Sunday, June 5, 2021 is now perched on a pole at Caledonia’s Land Back Lane, where demonstrators remain at the site of the McKenzie Meadows housing development.
“I woke up and it was there,” said Skyler Williams, spokesperson for Land Back Lane. Williams was at the demonstration on Sunday and has been a part of other demonstrations following the discovery of 215 children near the site of a residential school in Kamloops, BC. Williams said “there’s lots of talk of what should happen” with the head moving forward, but “there’s been no decision made yet.”
