A little history lesson.
The monument of Sir James Pliny Whitney I found at Queen's Park while exploring the city with a French Couchsurfer I shared the room in Etobicoke. Little I knew about him, but after I opened Wikipedia, I found out that he was a politician in the Canadian province of Ontario. He was also a lawyer in eastern Ontaro and the sixth Premier of Ontario.
Man, famous enough to have his own monument in a lovely park for pedestrians.
