John A. Macdonald's birthday...

195 years ago today, in Glasgow, Scotland. At least that's the day he celebrated; some question has been raised about whether it actually was the day he was born. Anyway you still are not getting a holiday for it.

But various John A. Macdonald events were held around the country yesterday and today. Hats off to, for instance, the John A. Macdonald Society of Hamilton, Ontario, which held an event yesterday at Macdonald's statue at King and John in the heart of the city.
