One may not agree with all Sir John A. MacDonald did but that doesn't mean we paint him entirely in a pejorative manner.

People say this every time there is criticism of Sir John A., but you have to remember that for the last 200 years we have been honouring him as one of our countries founders and as a great man --- meanwhile, many Canadians today still suffer under both the lingering effects of his actions as well as the injustices perpetrated by those who followed him. It would be supremely unfair to talk about his legacy and not point out some of the wounds he inflicted on our country, especially given that they have not all healed.
