Anti John A MacDonald Comments

Jeff Hagar Count your lucky stars it wasn't an Ottoman Empire despot. They didn't sign Treaties with indigenous anybody in the Old World. 
They wiped you out. 
If you really think it through. North American Indian Tribes got off with a pretty fair deal.

Bill Ferencz I attended Sir John A. Macdonald Collegiate in Scarborough for four years. They can change the name of the school for all I care. Holding on to these things as if our stay here was eternal is silly and rather narcissistic 
It's just a name. They might close the school one day and then that's that anyway. Remove the name. The man will still remain the first prime minister of Canada.

Joe Kennedy Pierre Trudeau, Justins dad is the PM who made Canada a nation. All other PM's before him were bag boys for the British Monarchy. This is what our children should be taught. A name on a school doesn't matter to little kids.

Kevin De Andrade I think you would find that the majority of teachers are against this if you asked. I certainly am although I teach high school so I'm not with ETFO. I'm quite certain they never consulted members about this.

Bill Gurney Perhaps theyshould concern themselves with TEACHING, since they are doing such a wonderful job at that. I know blame the admin, blame the lack of funding, blame anyone but themselves. The downward spiral of todays youth is part and parcel the education system and the teachers that lead it.

JoAnn King Do we not have a few more serious problems then worrying about John A. MacDonald schools? What is wrong with these teachers? Is this what education is all about and are they setting a good example for our children? So tired of hearing things like this.

Rob Foley Yes, his views were openly racist by 21st century standards. By 19th century standards he was relatively progressive in his views. We can't hold historical peoples to modern standards .

Mark Rubello Macdonald is considered to be one of the chief architects of Confederation. As leader of the Conservatives of Canada West he agreed to join the Great Coalition of 1864 whose aim was to achieve Confederation. His role in the several conferences prior to Confederation was vital and he emerged easily as the political leader of the scattered colonies of British North America. Hence, he was chosen to be the first Prime Minister of the new Dominion.
