I would like to add my name to a long list of Canadians who are determined to celebrate Canada's greatest citizen, Sir John A. Macdonald this year. Just last month, downtown councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong proposed to name Union Station after Canada's great first Prime Minister. There are many critics opposed to Sir John A. Macdonald for his well-documented racist views such as being passionately opposed to Asian immigration to Canada. While I acknowledge the former Prime Minister held some wrong-headed views, I believe his critics are being too harsh on him while ignoring his important role in confederation and Canadian federalism.
