Canada’s first prime minister was to be honoured Wednesday at a special ceremony in the Scottish Highlands.

Macdonald– may his spirits live on.
On a related note, someone is trying to rename Wellington Street in Ottawa after Macdonald. Apparently he is offended by having a street named after the Iron Duke or something. The irony is that Macdonald likely admired Wellington a great deal.
