The Greatest Canadian series charts the nation's collective efforts to name the one Canadian who is the greatest of them all. CBC received over a hundred and forty thousand nominations from all corners of the country. And after the votes were counted and the final round of the debate raged on, ten nominees remained. In this series of lively, revealing one hour programs, CBC Television profiles each of the Top Ten. Celebrity advocates use a potent mix of charisma and persuasion to rally Canadians all the way to the dramatic final vote (won by Tommy Douglas).
