So, the third Canadian P.M. was some dude named Sir John Abbott. Seriously, why does that name not ring a bell to me? I swear I’ve never heard that name before in my life2.
|Name||Sir John Joseph Caldwell Abbott|
|Born:||March 12, 1821 in St. Andrews, Lower Canada|
|Died:||October 30, 1893|
|Held Office:||June 16, 1891 – November 24, 1892|
|Best known for:||-seeing as I don’t recognize his name at all, he’s not “best known for” anything to me-but according to my extensive research, he was a Senator, not a member of the House of Commons, while he was the Prime Minister. Weird!|
|Some Things I Didn’t Know About This P.M.||Acto Wikipedia: “His “most memorable”political comment is “I hate politics.””|

1For the record, I’m not actually in bed with Sir John A. I’m in my bed, with my laptop writing about him. Because it’s late and although I’m tired, I *must* post this today. *Must!* (It appears that WordPress does not want to put a superscript into my title. Bah!)
2Well, other than the character on the Young & the Restless. And that’s just sad. Clearly, I need to be doing this little exercise in Canadian history!
