Sir John A. Macdonald - Prime Minister of Canada - 1867-1873 and 1878-1891.

As architect of the National Policy, Macdonald foresaw the day when a transcontinental railway crossed the land and brought settlers to the west. The establishment of protective tariffs led to settlers buying their manufactured goods from eastern Canada. These products were shipped by the railways, thus encouraging economic growth and prosperity for Canada.
