In recent days on Art’s History, we have marked the wedding anniversaries of PM Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie, and that of former PM Brian Mulroney and his life partner Mila.
Today, it is a great personal and professional pleasure to send out anniversary congratulations to our 16th PM, Joe Clark, and his wife Maureen McTeer, as they celebrate their special day. They were married June 30, 1973, so today is their 49th wedding anniversary, a remarkable milestone in today’s world.
