Prime Minister Brian Mulroney & Sir John A.


Past Prime Ministers have honoured Macdonald’s statesmanship and vision. The Rt. Hon. Brian Mulroney, for example, who led Canada between 1984 and 1993, penned an article in tribute to Sir John A. in 2008 where he states “Sir John A. saw his greatest achievement as getting to Confederation. It was only his beginning, however. With it he opened the door to new provinces, new immigrants, and prosperity. He built a system of government based, not on sectarian ideology, but on tolerance and individual freedom.”
