34 Namesake for Germain Street in Saint John, Canada

Germain Street is named after Lord George Germain. He was the British Colonial Secretary (1775 – 1782) in charge of the American colonies. His bad advice to the British military is partially blamed for the United Kingdom’s defeat during the American Revolution. It seems odd he would be posthumously honored with a street name.
