Top 10 Greatest CanadiansThe Greatest Canadians of all-time however you define greatest.
The Top Ten
I love terry fox for fighting cancer and raising the amount of donations he did for cancer, almost all of my grandparents have had it and there isn't one person I know who hasn't been strongly affected by cancer. He was also very strong and never put himself above others
Terry, for myself was and is the definition of what it is to be Canadian. In the maw of cancer Terry fox fought for us all, raising awareness on a global scale and through his courage and strength made us understand what it means to be human.
All of these Canadian's are great people. But really, in my opinion, nobody even comes close to Terry Fox. He brought an entire country together in 143 days and continues to make Canadians proud and inspire the world 37 years later!
Terry Fox is a real hero. Most people who have cancer would just sit in bed all day (Mostly because its all they can do but) Terry went out and basically sacrificed himself, not for his own cure but for others to be cured.
I can't believe he wasn't here. Bryan is one of the greatest musicians ever - great singer, perfect songwriter, talented producer. Real Canadian Trophy
Nobel laureate noted as the first person that used insulin on humans. He received the Nobel Prize at age 32, remaining the youngest Nobel laureate in the area of Physiology/Medicine (as of 2011).
Amazing woman with powerful voice. She performs the hardest songs and she does it wonderfully easy. Brilliant vocalist!
My Heart Will Go On, such a nice, soft song. It definitely fits Titanic.
The greatest rock drummer of all time is Canadian - ask anybody who knows a bit more about drumming. He's a drummer of the great band Rush.
Best drummer ever!
He invented telegraph! We could not phone or use Facebook or any other things, if he didn't invented those stuff. I am impressed of his amazing work of history.
Wayne is such an amazing hockey player and a true great person.
He holds 49 NHL records of course he should b here
Hey I like hockey
An insperation to other he's #1 in my book
Geddy lee is the worlds most influential bass guitar player and is an officer in the order of Canada as well as Canada's most respected bass player.
Actor (Back To The Future). Iconic quote - "This is heavy".
The amount of work his foundation has put into Parkinson's research is epic.
He was so diligent and persistent in his efforts to improve the lot for all Canadians. Today, it is only the older generation who can recall what it was like to not have universal access to health care. Our current dental system would be comparable. Not only did he succeed in his efforts but he also changed how we view ourselves; a people who care about our neighbours.
He saved the world! Imagine you getting hurt and you have to go to the hospital. how would you pay? Without Tommy Douglas we wouldn't be getting free medical care. we don't have to pay. we give in our medical heath care card. PS. he was voted the greatest Canadian in real life!
He has worked to save Canada without being a public celebrity.
Good actor... yeah, that's about it.
One of my favourite actors ever.. he is incredibly talented and every movie starring this guy is guaranteed to make you laugh.. he does such an amazing job..
He’s really funny in Dumb & Dumber.
Who knows what great things Kristen could have done had she not been murdered! We need to remember Kristen and Leslie and Tammy... Maybe all 3 should win! Give them a little something back from what was taken away by two monsters and one that is walking free!
A guitar virtuoso and one of the greatest metal musicians (Annihilator).
Louis riel is better then terry fox
No one is better then Terry Fox.
Don cherry is amazing and deserves 500% of the votes
Should be #2 at least
One of the funniest comedians of all time. Easily the greatest ever host of SNL's Weekend Update. Many of his funniest moments have come from various T.V. interviews with Conan, Letterman, etc. Also starred in and wrote cult classic Dirty Work, had two sitcoms, and was host of Sports Show on Comedy Central.
Greatest living comedian
He was in the Queen movie, Bohemian Rhapsody. Don’t let his character in the film fool you, he’s a big fan of Queen in real life. There’s a reason why Bohemian Rhapsody was in Wayne’s World.
Austin Powers and Wayne’s World are really funny.
He’s a big fan of Queen. I’m also Canadian and I’m a big fan of Queen.
