PM Harper delivers remarks honouring Sir John A. Macdonald, Canada's first Prime Minister, during his 200th birthday celebration.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we are here to honour our very first Prime Minister so I would obviously like to begin by acknowledging again—once again—the other former prime ministers who are here with us today, the Right Honourable John Turner, 17th Prime Minister of Canada, and the Right Honourable Kim Campbell, 19th Prime Minister of Canada.
