Wayne Gretzky Officially the 9th Best Canadian Ever

wayne_gretzkyWayne Gretzky is the 9th best Canadian ever based on a poll conducted by the Canadian government. Twelve thousand Canadians participated in a 5-part survey that compiled more than 1,100 “inspirational Canadians” ahead of Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017. The list was chock full of politicians. Pierre Trudeau, who was not a goalie for the Maple Leafs as I had assumed, came in 1st. Since Trudeau was one of the politicians, Wayne Gretzky was the only athlete on the list. Everyone who wrote in “Vince Carter” has since been deported. [CBC]
