HAPPY BIRTHDAY SIR JOHN A.

Canada’s first Prime Minister. A dreamer. A Father of Confederation. Sir John A. Macdonald’s accomplishments gave birth to a nation, but the life story of Canada’s first prime minister is not so very different from the story of thousands of immigrants who have come to Canada since that nation began.
The eldest son of working class Scottish immigrants, John A. Macdonald worked his way to political success, in the face of great personal tragedy. Fuelled by his determination to succeed, Sir John A. completed his law degree and was elected to the provincial legislature, where his political career took off. A visionary and an idealist, Sir John A. Macdonald championed the cause of Confederation, as he fought for and realized his dream of a Canadian nation that spanned sea to sea.

Happy Birthday Sir John!!
