A representative piece of history, not being from Canada it was cool to learn about, nothing special though

Commissioned bronze sculpture of Sir John A. MacDonald (Canada's first Prime Minister), in a courtroom setting with chair inside a railing. Public can sit in chair for photo. Outside the Armory, across from Naval Marine Archive. Great for kids or history buffs.
