BELLEVILLE, Ont. - A heavy bronze plaque dedicated to Canada's fifth Prime Minister has been stolen from his hometown in Belleville, Ont.
Police say the 45 kilogram solid bronze plaque dedicated to Sir Mackenzie Bowell was taken from a downtown park.
The plaque measures about a metre tall and 60 centimetres across.
Bowell served just two years as prime minister from 1894 to 1896.
He was appointed to the post by the governor general after the sudden death of Prime Minister Sir John Thompson.
After serving as prime minister, Bowell served as the Senate Leader and remained in the Senate until his death in 1917.
