Petition to the Government of Canada



    Terry Fox has become a national symbol and is a true hero, universally admired for his ability to remind us of the power of hope and the possibility of dreams;

    His example of grit, determination and selflessness have formed the embodiment of the modern Canadian identity;

    After following extensive consultation, the Bank of Canada has submitted an eight-person short list to the Minister of Finance to select the next Canadian to be featured on the five dollars bank note; and

    Terry Fox is one of the eight on the shortlist.



    We, the undersigned, Citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to select Terry Fox as the finalist for the next great Canadian to be honoured  and featured on the back of the newly proposed five dollars bank note.
