Thanks to our first Prime Minister Sir John A. Macdonald, Canadians have had the historic right to navigate the millions of lakes, rivers, and streams of Canada without being impeded by pipelines, bridges, power lines, dams, mining and forestry equipment, and more for 130 years.
Thanks to current Prime Minister Stephen Harper, that will no longer be the job of the Government of Canada.
