John Alexander Macdonald, who had occupied a prominent position for years as a Conservative leader. The time had come for the accomplishment of a great change foreshadowed by Lord Durham, Chief-Justice Sewell, Mr. Howe, Sir Alexander Gait, and other public men of Canada: the union of the provinces of British North America.
