A life size bronze statue of Sir John A MacDonald stood beside the Pandora Avenue entrance to City Hall from July 1, 1982 to August 11, 2018. The statue was removed on August 11, 2018 as part of the City of Victoria’s journey of Truth and Reconciliation with the Lekwungen peoples, the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations, on whose homeland the city stands.

The original statue is stored safely in a city facility. A plaque explaining the removal of the statue stands in its place in front of City Hall.
