That's 21 feet, for those of you in the States.
According to TFA, it was the City of Toronto who insisted that the issue of possible copyright infringement be settled before putting up the statue.
Which isn't quite as bad as DC's "no you can't", but is a far cry away from "We've got your back, father of murdered five-year-old."
I love The Week. It's a reasonably objective collection of the best news articles/opinions each week. Each Sunday, I sit down with a cup of coffee for a half hour and get a broad overview of what happened in the world that week, and what people said about it.
