I noticed that Earnscliffe, the former home of the Right Honourable John A. Macdonald, will be getting the restoration attention it deserves by the British government. (Since 1930 it has been the home of successive British High Commissioners, and is owned by Britain, not Canada.)
As Jim Garrard, Executive Director of the Macdonald Bicentennial Commission in Kingston writes in the Ottawa Citizen, with "the 200th anniversary of Sir John A.'s birth fast approaching in 2015, this news could not have come at a better time."
Macdonald lived here for many years and died in the house in June of 1891.
Now if only Britain would sell it to Canada and if only Canada were interested in buying it...
