Sir John Eh

​Clifton students and staff welcomed SALON Theatre Productions on Thursday, April 9th.  Five talented actors engaged us in the legacy of John A. McDonald in their play, entitled the Trial of Sir John A. This play looked at the later life and policies of Sir John A. McDonald, especially the building of the trans- Canadian Railway and the impact this  had on the Metis, First Nations, Chinese railway workers and western Canadian settlers.
In this original musical production, 200-year-old former Prime Minister, Sir John A Macdonald is charged with cheating, misleading and mistreating. While awaiting trial in the Court of Canadian History, we were taken inside his jail cell while Macdonald awaits his trial. His mysterious cellmate was no other than Louis Riel. The trial proceeded with witnesses for each charge and students were the jury during this interactive play. Students found Sir John not guilty on the charge of cheating; but guilty on the charges of misleading and mistreating.
