The Coolest Canadian

In honour of Canada’s 140th birthday and this holiday long weekend, I think it is time to recognize some Canadian talent.

I think one of the coolest guys on the planet is Canadian. This guy has a presence that comes through the television screen . I knew it the first time I saw him and often thought that he must be the coolest person in the world.

I am talking about George Stroumboulopoulos. He is the host of CBC’s The Hour. It is a great show and extremely entertaining. I like the way the show speaks to my generation. It is young, hip and informative.

I remember being impressed with George years and years ago when he first appeared as a VJ on Much Music. He was cool back then and probably one of the best VJs ever on the network.

A few years ago there was a show called The Greatest Canadian and it was something to see. I think it is time for a sequel called The Coolest Canadian. Here are my nominees;

1. George Stroumboulopoulos
2. Sarah Polley
3. Barenaked Ladies
4. Avril Lavigne

I am sure that I could add to this list indefinitely. There are some really cool Canadians, both past and present. The above are my nominees for the coolest Canadian of today. If you have anyone you’d like to add, please post a comment.
