“My grandfather was very much a force in my life, and he told me, ‘There is nothing noble in being superior to someone else. True nobility lies in being superior to your former self.’ He stood by this approach to success, and would have been humbled by the honour Canada Post has paid him with this stamp.”
– Gerald Haddon, The Honourable J.A.D. McCurdy’s grandson
