Conrad Black to lead Kingston’s Sir John A. Macdonald walk

One of Canada’s leading historians, commentators and controversial public figures will be leading a special Sir John A. Macdonald historical walking tour in Kingston in late September.

Conrad Black, author of the recently acclaimed Rise to Greatness: The History of Canada, as well as biographies of Franklin Roosevelt, Richard Nixon and Maurice Duplessis, has agreed to host this public event on September 29, starting at noon, to support a Kingston scholar’s research into Sir Wilfrid Laurier.

“Lord Black’s Sir John A. Macdonald walk will allow participants the rarest of opportunities to learn about all facets of Canadian history from a master public historian,” said event organizer Arthur Milnes, editor of the forthcoming Canada Always: The Speeches of Sir Wilfrid Laurier.

“The tour will wind its way through historic downtown Kingston and Mr. Black will share his unparalleled knowledge of Sir John A. Macdonald, Sir Wilfrid Laurier and so many others who have defined our nation.”

There is limited space and tickets. Contact Arthur Milnes for more information at (613) 536-5771 or at [email protected]

  1. I so wish I could be there. The way things have been going, however, I might not have the financial resources to get through another Canadian winter let alone afford a trip from New Brunswick to a distant region of Canada. I blame this on the Canadian Government for not adequately providing for me now as a senior citizen and in my earlier years as a mostly stay-at-home Mom. I certainly don’t blame someone who happens to appear wealthier than I.

    Conrad Black is a great modern hero. I would love to ask him where he stands on basic income. Then again, perhaps he dares not express an opinion on something even the leaders appear to be afraid to discuss.
