I have seen that Tami and Mighty Hiker insist on Canada taking the blame for the achievements of Kennedy and Kruk on Cerro Torre, so I have decided that it is on time to make a thread appreciating famous Canadians.

This is the list:
1. Wayne Gretzky, ice hockey
2. William Osler, physician
x. John Kenneth Galbraith, economist
x. Tommy Douglas, politician founder of the CCF and the father of socialized medicine in Canada
x. Tim Horton, restauranteur
3. Pamela Anderson, generous actor
4. Neil Young, musician
x. Joni Mitchell
5. Leonard Cohen, musician
6. Mary Pickford, actress
7. Richard E. Taylor, physics
8. Glenn Gould, pianist
9. David Cronenberg, film director
10. Cirque de Soleil, circus
11. The Cowboy Junkies, musicians
12. Saul Bellow, author
13. Bryan Adams, musician
14. Celine Dion, musician
15. Jacques Villeneuve, F1
16. David H. Hubel, medicine and physiology

39. Pierre and Margaret Trudeau, politician and first lady from a different breed
x. Pierre Berton - Yukon born author and raconteur. Brilliant.

Marlow most Canadians no nothing of Osler.............


Pam Anderson, by the way, from Vancouver Island, is actually more then a pair of titties. Yeah, yeah, I know. Whatever...........but in 2003 she paid for the Olympic training of the US gymnast Mohini Bhardwaj to the tune of 20,000$.

Now THATS generous.

What about Terry Fox?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terry_Fox

Pam Anderson... she was a cutie when she was the LaBatts girl, but
since she donned the clown makeup and matching prosthesis, not so much.
