John Diefenbaker,
in my mind he is infamous for being the worst prime minister of all time.
This idiot killed the Avro Arrow project, and even had the planes destroyed that were already built.
The Arrow was so far advanced, and such amazing technology.
Yet he killed it, and i wish he had been shot for this crime.

Pierre Berton is one of Canada's best known personalities and is arguably Canada's best-known living writer. He has also been an important television presence since the earliest days of Canadian television. For more than 30 years, he was rarely absent from the nation's television screens and by the 1970s was correctly described as "clearly Canada's best-known and most respected TV public affairs personality" by Warner Troyer in The Sound and the Fury: An Anecdotal History of Canadian Broadcasting. He was also one of most highly paid. During his career as a columnist and commentator, he has been a tireless defender of public broadcasting and the importance of Canadian content. In all of his many public roles, he has been a prodigious popularizer of the Canadian experience. He may be remembered most for his many books, mostly popular histories, but he has long had an arresting television presence.

Since we're talking writers let's not forget Farley Mowatt.
