Lord Stanley Preston: Inventor of the Stanley Cup for the sport of Hockey that --aside from it's European roots hundreds of years ago-- was MADE IN CANADA.
Wayne Gretzky (be thankful we gave him to you, SoNowThen!
James Naismith: Inventor of Basketball.
Thomas F. Ryan: Inventor of 5-Pin Bowling.
Joe Shuster: Co-creator of Superman.
Glenn Gould: Famous Pianist
Mary Pickford: NOT "America's Sweetheart"!! She was CANADA'S!
The Kids in the Hall
Lorne Michaels: Creator of Saturday Night Live
Second City/SCTV Alumni: John Candy, Eugene Levy, Rick Moranis, Catherine O'Hara, Martin Short, Dave Thomas, Robin Duke.
