This weekend, I found out that while my friends know George Washington was the first American President, they drew a blank on naming Sir John A. MacDonald as the first Prime Minister of Canada.
Even when I held up and offered a $10 bill with John A. MacDonald’s face on it, my friends still couldn’t answer me.
Before hitting the streets of Toronto, I assumed my friends were just stupid and uncultured. But as you can see in this video, it’s not just my friends who don’t know anything about history, it’s everyone on Yonge and Dundas!
P.S. The new $10 bill totally sucks!
