    Alright, so I've been watching 'The Greatest Canadian' on CBC, and personally I think Lester B. Pearson or Terry Fox should win... but in your opinion, out of the CBC's top ten, who is the greatest Canadian?

    The list is:

    1. Terry Fox
    2. Sir Fredrick Banting
    3. Alexander Graham Bell
    4. Lester B. Pearson
    5. David Suzuki (sp?)
    6. Pierre Trudeau
    7. Tommy Douglas
    8. Wayne Gretzky
    9. Don Cherry
    10. Sir John A. MacDonald

    Who's yer pick?

    Don Cherry's a tool -- replace him with Oscar Peterson.

    I'll put my money on Mr. Fox, thank-you-very-much :D.
  4. I'd say Pierre Elliot Trudeau, but it's hard to narrow it down. I just think Trudeau stood up for Canada and was a role model to be proud of.
