I need to eat. I got the list down to 9 items so far, but needed to add “Eat Something” to the list. So now it’s back up to 10. Don’t you hate when that happens.

There’s a Greatest Canadian Race.
NDP political legend T.C. Douglas
Hockey star Wayne Gretzky
TV sports personality Don Cherry
Founding prime minister Sir John A. Macdonald
One-legged runner Terry Fox
Medical pioneer Dr. Frederick Banting
Prime minister and Nobel peace prize winner Lester Pearson
Telephone inventor Alexander Graham Bell
TV science host and environmentalist Dr. David Suzuki
Former PM Pierre Trudeau.
Not surprisingly, the 40 runners-up represent an eclectic and sometimes curious list, including Rick Mercer, John Candy, Avril Lavigne, Bret (The Hitman) Hart, Tecumseh, Laura Secord, Mike Myers, Stompin’ Tom Connors, Louis Riel and even The Unknown Soldier.
