Birthday bash

A recent Dominion Institute survey found four in ten Canadians could not identify John A. Macdonald's birthday. So you'd think the former prime minister's admirers would be anxious to talk about how they're marking that date. But you'd be wrong. This coming Friday, the Sir John A. MacDonald Society is hosting a dinner at The Vancouver Club to celebrate the occasion. But, when asked about the annual dinner, organizer Peter Hebb said, "Where did you get any information about that?...It's a private society. There's no press. It's just a private dinner." And who else, other than Innovative Research Group Inc. managing director Greg Lyle, is speaking at the event? "I'm sorry it's a private society," responded Mr. Hebb. "We don't discuss it with the press."
