Video: Crowley addresses the Sir John A. Macdonald dinner

On Feb. 18, 2015, the Macdonald-Laurier Institute hosted a celebration of Sir John A. Macdonald at the Canadian Museum of History.

The first person to address the crowd was MLI Managing Director Brian Lee Crowley. In this video, he praises Macdonald for his devotion to the cause of Canada.

He also laments the fact that Macdonald’s vision for Canada is incomplete.

Standing at the podium, he produces a can of “Old Tomorrow”, an Ontario beer that bears Macdonald’s face. He then cracks open the tab and takes a long sip, all in defiance of laws that make it illegal to bring beer from Ontario to the museum’s location in Quebec.
