Hamilton city councillors voted on Thursday in favour of keeping in place the statue of Sir John A. Macdonald in Gore Park.

The decision was made in spite of hundreds of letters sent from residents of the city calling for the statue's removal.

The motion was defeated in a 3 to 2 vote. Councillors Tom Jackson, Esther Pauls and Sam Merulla voted against removing the statue of Macdonald, according to Global News.

The council did, however, approve $75,000 to go into a review of city landmarks.

Statues of Macdonald have been forcibly or regularly removed for over a year now. Last year in Montreal, a statue of Macdonald was torn down by left-wing activists. Last month, a statue of Macdonald was removed from his hometown in Kingston after a decision by the city.
