Prime Minister John Diefenbaker & Sir John A.


Sir John A. has had no greater fan amongst his successor Prime Ministers than John Diefenbaker of Saskatchewan. Diefenbaker, Prime Minister from 1957 to 1963, often told Sir John A. stories in his speeches and writings. He also visited Kingston many times to honour Sir John A. In 1967, Diefenbaker even released an album, I Am A Canadian, to mark Canada's 100th birthday. One full side of the LP is devoted to him telling Sir John A. stories.
