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.

Have a seat and a chat with Sir John A. MacDonald, the first Prime Minister of Canada!

Because of the candy and references, I thought for sure that the distinguished-looking, brass gentleman sitting invitingly on the bench below was Willy Wonka. Instead, it is Sir John MacDonald, the first Prime Minister of Canada. A photo of him on Wikipedia looks like he was a pleasant sort of man, so I'm sure he wouldn't mind my mistake (although I am not so sure about other Canadians who are proud of their heritage).

And just an FYI…if you ever run into John Mac downtown, see if he says anything to you. I tried striking up a conversation with the guy but he just sat there staring off into the distance. A little rude if you ask me…but that’s certainly the exception to the rule in Charlottetown!

These thoughts struck me as I walked past Charlottetown’s newest public art display, a copper statue of Sir John A. MacDonald sitting on a bench at the corner of Queen and Richmond Streets.  Since its installation earlier this year, I have witnessed countless pedestrians interacting with this brass replica
