The list -
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.
