Amherst, N.S., not changing its name

Montreal Indigenous Move 20170913
The sign for Amherst street is seen Wednesday, September 13, 2017 in Montreal. Amherst Street is named after the British general who supported giving smallpox-laced blankets to the Indigenous people living here in the 1700s.

The mayor of Amherst, N.S., says council’s decision not to change the town’s name at this time may be different in the future if enough citizens demand it.
