Praise for Extraordinary Canadians
“This collection of greats is astounding. It shows what Canadians do: we think of others and act selflessly, and with great and quiet courage. Superheroes like First Nations children’s advocate Cindy Blackstock and Anishinaabe endocrine surgeon Nadine Caron swelled my chest, assuring me, that they, too, the best of us in Indigenous country, have dedicated their lives to make this nation one of the best in the world. As I read through these pages, I felt that each person formed infinite branches of an eternal maple tree, flickers of the flame that burns bright upon Parliament Hill and within the hearts of all of us.”
— JESSE THISTLE, #1 bestselling author of From the Ashes
“Three words describe the Canadians whose stories are told in this book: courage, resilience, and imagination. The courage to face the unthinkable and take on the impossible. The resilience to pick up when things go wrong and carry on. And the imagination to find new ways of living and giving. These heroes, sung and unsung, teach us what is to be a Canadian. An entertaining and uplifting read.”
— BEVERLEY McLACHLIN, former Chief Justice of Canada and bestselling author of Truth Be Told
“Extraordinary Canadians is a book about extraordinary Canadians written by an extraordinary Canadian. Everything about it is extraordinary. Some would say that to brag about being extraordinary is un-Canadian. I say, it’s time we celebrated ourselves. But what do I know? I wasn’t extraordinary enough to be included in this book. Screw you, Peter.”
— MARK CRITCH, comedian and bestselling author of Son of a Critch
