yep, my vote is for David Suzuki. its easy to paint him as a tree-hugging hippie longhair, but this guy has a big input in the most influential book i’ve ever read (The Tao of Physics by Fritjof Capra). I truly believe that if the world goes in the right direction, he will be looked on as a genius, years ahead of his time in terms of his view of the world, nature, and the human place in it.
definitely there are some other people in there with great achievements, terry fox, the father of healthcare guy, trudeau i like just for being so solid in terms of his dealing with the americans, but i think the whole idea of the ‘greatest canadian’ is pretty cheesy idea. why dont we make them sing and they can all compete for marrying a million bears or something.
wayne gretzky dosent even live in canada anymore. he’s also a complete corporate shill, tylenol, ford, pepsi, and thats just what i can remember offhand. sure the money is going to charity but anyone who advertises is tainted by that most evil of businesses.
you just know that he’s gonna pull an ‘october surprise’ and overthrow gary bettman and win the thing with a landslide though…
