A Toronto councillor's bid to rename the city's railway hub after Canada's first prime minister is getting a surprising amount of stick on social media.
Coun. Denzil Minnan-Wong is proposing to rename Union Station for Sir John A. Macdonald in time for the 150th anniversary of Macdonald's birth next January.
“Union Station is a great monument to Sir John A. because he is known for his National Policy, for building a railway from coast to coast,” Minnan-Wong said Tuesday, according to the Toronto Star.
“What better place in terms of recognition of Sir John A. than Union Station, probably the most important railway station in the country?”
But not everybody thinks it's a good idea; in fact almost no one, if Twitter is anything to go by.
Even if they rename Union Station, I'm still going to call it Union Station - just like the Skydome will always be the Skydome. #TOpoli
