MacDonald's Greatness in His Times


The greatness of John A. Macdonald. Canada's reluctance to recognize its own. The "cautious mediocrity" that is Canadian. Seeing Macdonald in relation to his times. An exploration of Macdonald's times. A greater understanding of why he brought to the work of Confederation the large and national view that he did. Tasks accomplished and how he did so. World events effecting those tasks. Macdonald's victories. Honouring our history and avoiding the cynicism of the shallow and the glib by maintaining, by renewing and recreating this country that Macdonald more than any other made.
