Storyline

In this series, Wendy Mesley presents a list that the participating public has voted as the Greatest Canadians in the country's history. However, the top 10 list is listed alphabetically, not by vote. Among those 10, who is the Greatest of all? One of the Prime Ministers like John A. Macdonald, Lester B. Pearson or Pierre Trudeau? One of the scientists like the insulin inventing Dr. Frederick Banting, the environmental crusader, David Suzuki, or the multi-disciplined inventor, Alexander Graham Bell? The ardently conservative hockey pundit Don Cherry or the equally steadfast socialist politician, Tommy Douglas? Is it the great hockey player, Wayne Gretzky, or the courageous cross-country runner/cancer activist hero Terry Fox? Celebrities from various walks of life state their case for why their particular Canadian should be the one, but it will be the votes of the viewers that will make the final decision.

The list -
29 November 2004 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I have to see that I was a little shocked in seeing who made the list of great Canadians. It's a real pity that some people who hadn't really had any

accomplishments other than insult people and give their loud opinions *cough* Don Cherry *cough* made the top ten. However, for the remaining, I believe

that they truly did have an affect (and still do) on Canada and even the world. It is great that they have had this as recognition. Pity there were no great women on the list ... to replace Don Cherry....

You may have noticed I don't support Don Cherry here... he's good on Hockey

Night in Canada... but as a top ten... not so much.

I voted for Terry Fox because he had such a tragic event happen to him at such a young age (as many people do) and he did something about it. From the

beginning his journey alone without publicity to the millions raised during his run for a cure. A run that is still taking place throughout many parts of the world! This young man is truly a great Canadian. He did it to help others, it had nothing to do with personal gain.

Well that's my two cents on the subject, I hope that you learned a little about our Canadian history and some accomplishments that we as Canadians should be

proud and thankful for.
