Sir John A. MacDonald

Sir John A. MacDonald, the first Prime Minister of Canada, immortalized in bronze. He headed up the meetings in Charlottetown that led to the eventual formation of Canada. It's not unusual to see both citizens and visitors sitting down to have a conversation with him.

This is a statue of Sir John A. MacDonald. He was the delegate from Upper Canada and he became the first Prime Minister of Canada. Visitors love to have their photo taken with him. I’ve seen him wearing a toque, a scarf, and even holding a bottle of beer. I laughed out loud when I saw him being French kissed by a young francophone guy. I love to pat him on the shoulder and say “Good Morning Johnny”.  In this photo he’s having a “conversation” with my nephew Daniel.

Gwyn took home the 2011 Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing for his book, Nation Maker: Sir John A. Macdonald: His Life, Our Times; Volume Two: 1867-1891

BB - This title is a substitution for "Private Demons: The Tragic Personal Life of John A. Macdonald" by Patricia Phenix. I am sure Nation Maker is also a good book as I am familiar with author Richard Gwyn.
