McGee Commemoration Ottawa 2018

2018-04-01

Thomas D'Arcy McGee, politician, journalist, poet, historian (born 13 April 1825 in Carlingford, Ireland; died 7 April 1868 in Ottawa, ON).

Thomas D’Arcy McGee’s political career was shaped first and foremost by his dedication to Irish national liberation, which pushed him towards revolutionary anti-British doctrine in his early years. But amid radical transformations in his own circumstances, McGee ended his career as a Canadian Parliamentarian and staunch defender of British constitutional monarchy. McGee’s political transformation ultimately damaged his popularity and in 1868 he was assassinated.
