CBC Drama Special John A.: Birth of a Country

John A: Birth of a Country is a story of personal hatred, public passion and the rivalry that shaped Canada. The time is 1856 to 1864. Two men, each profoundly committed to his own views, battle to dominate Canada's future. This drama lays bare the passionate struggle between John A. Macdonald, the charismatic leader of the Conservative Party and his opponent, the fiercely determined George Brown, founder of Toronto's Globe newspaper and leader of what would become the Liberal Party.
