During the ceremony, the Sir John A. Macdonald Bicentennial Commission was able to proudly announce that all six living past Prime Ministers of Canada--Kim Campbell,Jean Chrétien, Joe Clark, Paul Martin, Brian Mulroney and John N. Turner—have joined our group and agreed to serve as honorary commissioners. Our commission would like to publicly thank this group of distinguished Canadians for their support of our efforts. With the January 2015 bicentennial of Sir John A. Macdonald’s birth fast approaching, we encourage all Hill Times’ readers and all members of the Parliament Hill community to get involved in Macdonald Bicentennial planning. Please see sirjohna2015.ca for further information. In addition, I would like to take this opportunity to thank The Hill Times itself for the newspaper’s support of and promotion of Canadian political history-including the coming Macdonald Bicentennial-over many years.
