Hon. Alexander Mackenize

The Hon. Alexander Mackenzie was Canada’s second Prime Minister, serving from 1873-78. Mackenzie was Leader of the Opposition until 1880 and then continued to sit as a Liberal MP until April 17, 1892 when he died from a stroke after suffering a fall at the age of 70.

This video was prepared for the Historical Society to celebrate Canada 150 and to raise awareness and appreciation of Mackenzie's life and times and contributions to Canada.
