Columbus Day: A celebration of evil?

There has been a backlash against Columbus Day in recent years (with good reason). In Venezuela last year, a statue of Columbus was toppled in Venezuela on Columbus Day and dragged through the streets, much to the dismay of Pat Robertson. Here is an interesting take on Columbus, while here is a fairly pathetic defense of him. So I won’t be celebrating the sailing skills of a mass murderer. But I will be celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving!
