Canada's movable history is being sold, given away or destroyed, thanks to The Museums Act,The Surplus Crown Assets Act, The Royal Canadian Mint Act and The National Capital Act.
The Royal Canadian Mint has the power to melt down coins, medals, tokens, plaques...made with gold, silver and other precious metals. How convenient for the Royal Canadian Mint, to be right next door to the Canadian War Museum, a building that was filled with precious metals, and precious memories:

I truly believe that Canada's Coat of Arms plaques were melted down by the Mint; they were made with real silver, gold and platinum; and thousands were stripped from government buildings that the Mulroney government privatized. In 1993, The Surplus Crown Assets Act was amended "To provide departments with additional options for the disposal of surplus movable assets."
