Tragically Hip frontman Gord Downie, suffragette Nellie McClung, and the first female astronaut, Roberta Bondar are three suggestions for who should be on the new five-dollar bill.

All of them are seemingly taking a backseat to Canadian hero Terry Fox from Port Coquitlam, BC.

Fox is beloved across Canada for his attempt to run across Canada in 1980 to help raise money for cancer research.

Fox died in 1981, but runs are organized in his honour across Canada every year.
