    Sir John A Macdonald, who negotiated the deal that established the Canadian state and served twice as Prime Minister in the late 19th Century, has featured on the country’s $10 note since 1971.

    Imagine if the US removed Presidents who committed Genocide. They probably wouldn't have any Presidents left to put on their banknotes.

    Obama did a fine job of supporting that type of effort in Libya..... As a matter of fact he did a fine job of it the entire time he held the presidency.

    "Founding Canada" was not all he did though; he also spearheaded the government's abduction of some 150,000 children from their parents and cost Canada a dark reputation that it's still a long way from getting over.
