As a Canadian I thought it would be interesting to share a little about Canadian history. Today is Sir John A. Macdonald Day, he was the first Prime Minister of Canada. He played a very important role in Canadian history by joining the provinces, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and the province of Canada under the British North America Act in 1867. This act created a federal dominion and defined the government of Canada.
After the official creation of Canada on July 1, 1867, John Alexander Macdonald was knighted and designated the first Prime Minister. He is credited with creating a Canadian Confederation. In the 19 years he served, he took what was a small colony and spread the population across the land with the help of the railroad. Despite his great efforts he was never truly honoured with any fantastic monuments unlike his American counterpart, George Washington. It wasn't until 2001 that Canadian parliament named January 11 Sir John A. Macdonald Day, yet you wouldn't know it since it passes by unnoticed. Largely because it's not a holiday. It's a shame since without his hard work and dedication there might not be a Canada. Yet it truly speaks volumes about Canadian culture.
On November 6, I kept a constant watch on the American vote. I'm not just talking about Obama v. Romney, I'm talking about something much more significant. In three American states there was another item included on the ballot, the legalization of marijuana. While I'm happy Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan were not elected, I'm not entirely pleased with President Obama. He needs to be held accountable for the past four years. I digress.
Washington, Oregon and Colorado voted on the legalization of marijuana, it passed in both Washington and Colorado. I was incredibly surprised when I heard the news and incredibly pleased. While those were the only states to legalize there were other states that decriminalized weed or voted in medical marijuana. It seems with the giant debt looming over Americans they are grasping at anything that might be a money maker. I can guarantee they're going to make money.
