Yesterday was the birthday of Sir John A. MacDonald, the first Prime Minister and founding father of Canada, and it went by pretty much unnoticed. Heck, if it weren’t for a Twitter update from Kate Beaton, I probably wouldn’t even have known it. Which is kind of funny, because, in contrast, George Washington’s birthday is celebrated as a statutory holiday (along with that Lincoln guy). It’s just one of the ways Canadians and Americans are very different people, I suppose.
