Presidents and prime ministers everywhere, I suspect, sometimes wonder how history will deal with them. Some even evince a touch of the insecurity of Thomas Darcy McGee, an Irish immigrant to Canada who became a father of our confederation.

In one of his poems, McGee, thinking of his birthplace, wrote poignantly, "Am I remembered in Erin? I charge you speak me true. Has my name a sound, a meaning in the scenes my boyhood knew?" 

Ronald Reagan will not have to worry about Erin because they remember him well and affectionately there. Indeed they do.

—Former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney Eulogy of Former President Ronald Reagan, June 11, 2004
