I think that's the statue of Fearless Leader on a specially designed pedestal that always faces the sun.

If those folks don't like Fearless Leader any more, why not raise some much needed money selling it to The Whitney or something?

He was a good boy.

He even named a month of the year after his mother. :)

Sir John A. Macdonald statue removed from Victoria City Hall
The City of Victoria has taken the controversial step of removing a statue of Canada’s first prime minister from City Hall. The statue will be stored while the city holds a “conversation on reconciliation.”
Vandal scrawls ‘1984’ on plaque that replaced Sir John A. Macdonald statue in Victoria
VICTORIA — An offer from Ontario to find a new home for a statue of Sir John A. Macdonald has been declined by the city of Victoria.
...
The statue of Macdonald, who represented Victoria in Parliament from 1878 to 1882, was removed as part of the reconciliation process with the Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations.
....
A temporary plaque placed where the statue was removed was vandalized less than a day after it was installed.

This one’s had a few attempts to remove it (vandalized in 2004 and 2009):

“statue of Nazi collaborator Sean Russell in Fairview Park, Dublin.
...
Over the next six years, thousands of Irish volunteers were to die opposing him [hitler]. Just one - Sean Russell - died in his service. Yet he is the only Irish victim of the Second World War to have a statue in his honour in Dublin.
He cannot believe that a new statue was made: "Who approved this in Dublin City Council? And what is the prevailing aesthetic which can rule that the destroyers of Nelson's Pillar in Dublin may permanently affect the streetscape of the capital, but that a statue to a Nazi fellow traveller should be restored?"

In January 1950 India’s constitution as an independent state took effect.

[Sardar Vallabhbhai] Patel was the first Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister of India.

Patel died from a heart attack on December 15, 1950.

The project was conceptualised by Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a memorial to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
So this guy was more important than Mahatma Gandhi?
Seriously?

You can't put up a 600 foot statue to someone who was known for austere self denial!
