Sir John A Macdonald Turns 200

Jan 09, 2015, 12:00 pm

January 11th marks the 200 birthday of Sir John A Macdonald. Sir John A. spent 19 years in office and in that time led the way for many of the foundational legislature that helped establish and develop Canada. Examples of these documents include: The Canadian Constitution, and the British North America Act. To honor the first prime minister there are week-long celebrations in his hometown of Kingston, ON, including: community murals, a book release, and even the performance of some of his speeches. Though it is his hometown, the people of Kingston leave the event open to discussion about his policies and whether he deserves a Toast or a Roast. We are a bit far from Kingston, but if you are looking for something a little closer to home, we have memorabilia and the desk of Sir John A. on display in the gallery here at the Diefenbaker Canada Centre.
