Donald MacDonald, one of Canada’s senior statesmen, has passed. Mr. MacDonald was my High Commissioner during my posting to London.
End of an era in more ways than one. MacDonald, a prominent Liberal politician, who had served Prime Ministers Pearson and Pierre Trudeau, was appointed to London by conservative Prime Minister Mulroney……. a crossing of the political divide that would be unthinkable in today’s poisoned political environment.
AVE ATQUE VALE!
