In the news:
I looked for a stuffed toy to take with us on our visit to Ottawa/Kingston/Port Hope, and all of them were made in China, except for Sir John.
We met Brian Porter, who portrays Sir John for the Kingston Historical Society!
Yes, I have met him, Sir John. But I have also named my authentic Muskoka puppet after him, after the suggestion of my family friend, Donna, and a great afternoon at her Kingston Museum. A home where Sir John A. lived for four years.
We met impersonator, Brian Porter, a Brockville teacher who has spent time recreating this historical character. He bears a startling likeness!
