Celebrate Sir John A Macdonald

This Sunday, January 11, 2015, is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Canada’s first Prime Minister, Sir John A. Macdonald.  To mark the occasion Library and Archives Canada (LAC) has released a podcast episode, Let us be Canadians: Sir John A. Macdonald.

Kingston journalist-historian Arthur Milnes recounts Macdonald's history, role in the founding Canada and tells several amusing anecdotes, some from Anecdotal life of Sir John Macdonald by E B Biggar available at  https://archive.org/details/cihm_00133.  LAC art archivist and curator Madeleine Trudeau informs on resources available at LAC.
