But in Whitchurch-Stouffville, Ont., the town has two chains — and a complicated explanation. Mayor Justin Altmann was elected back in 2014 and wore the town’s official chain of office, which is blue, to his 2016 wedding.

Video posted online by a group of self-described “anti-colonial anti-racists” shows a colourful substance being sprayed onto the statue of Canada’s first prime minister at Place du Canada.
