Stompin' Tom was born in NB tho he was raised in PEI... I was just picking folks who are known outside the borders...and their province of origin... and trying to keep it down to 3... it's tough esp. when getting to NS... there are so many from Ont. and Kebek , Lightfoot , Morrisette, Jim Carey, Akroyd, Lorne Michaels .. on and on and on..

IMO,
the best part of any nation is its contribution to the arts, and Canada excels irregardless of government patronage or the lack thereof...

Well, it may grate on you, but, wemay as well get a good head start at listing them the three it may take awhile to deduce it from the many. Since   the world will end in 2012 (f' sure) .... your canidate is out.

Bankley,

From Nova Scotia I would suggest
Joseph Howe
Cyrus Eaton
Chief Membertou

Or, alternatively
Alexander Graham Bell (though he is shared)
Donald Sutherland
Wilf Carter

As to sports. Sydney Crosby

I would not rule out Anne Murray...but according to the Olympics ads, Dartmouth's Sara MacLaughlin seems to now be from BC....figure that one out?

Here are some others

Tecumseh was an Native American.

I've read "Grapes", and it, or they, has nothing to do with sour!

"Okay...how about Bobby Orr? Rocket Richard? Gordie Howe?" Even in the right order!

No mention of Farley Mowat! I read somewhere that he said "Goddammit" and "You little bastard" to his two Lab pups so often, that they became their names!

Would have liked the opportunity to have had a few jugs with Sir John A! "I get sick....not because of drink(but because)I am forced to listen to the ranting of my honourable opponent".

Pierre Trudeau. Somewhere between Leona and Barbara!
