    He's an offical Canadian Hero voted so by the people.

    It was an online poll done for a television show (The Greatest Canadian) on the CBC.  The concept of "one person, one vote" didn't apply to the process -- thus people on both sides of the spectrum like to belittle the result.  It's a valid criticism.

    Personally, I prefer the honour of Douglas' induction into the Order of Canada as being indicative of his positive and lasting influence on our society.

      I'll google it. Tommy Douglas deserves the highest of honors.
      I hope someone in the US will be our Medicare hero. Bernie Sanders, Anthony Weiner...
