An old guy with a guilty conscience dropped off a battered statue of General Wolfe at the Lord Elgin hotel in Ottawa over the weekend. The statuette has the signature of Vernon March, who designed the National War Memorial. It's battered a bit, missing a sword, but should give back some faith to all us jaded archivists and curators who figure they've lost something for sure and will never see it again.

Just...don't read the comments. Especially if you're having a bad day at work. No good comes of reading CBC comments about civil servants.
