This list (the CBC list not yours) is an insult to activists, to scientists, to women, to French-Canadians, to First-Nation, and more. I could open a history book (http://www.biographi.ca/en/) and list you 5000 Canadians more worthy of being on this list than Don Cherry!!! None of these celebrities deserve a spot on that list.

PS: In my opinion "the greatest Canadian of all time" is Frederick Banting.
