Sir John A. Macdonald

Sir John A. Macdonald is a man who has changed the world dearly and is definitely worth caring for. My video will explain why he is so important and why should we care?




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

The most interesting thing that I've learned about is that anyone can do anything. Change the world if you like, do many great things. However, that doesn't ,mean that everything you do will be successful. Macdonald may have done many things, but he didn't have the best personal life.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

Sir John A. Macdonald wasn't just granted the title as the first Prime Minsister of Canada. He truly did many historical things in the past that made him deserve it. One thing would be being one of the main Father's of Confederation. Commissioning the construction of the CPR, and much more.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

The lives back then would probably be very different. Back then, at first there wasn't even a country called Canada. The French and the English were't having the best relationship in the Province of Canada. Nor was the British with the Americans.
