If you are fan of pop music and Hollywood, then you have a big reason to be grateful to Canadians for many of your favourite pop-stars and film actors were born in this snowy nation. While grooving to the foot tapping music of Bryan Adams, Justin Beiber and Avril Lavigne, imagine for a while how boring contemporary music would be without these musicians! Talking about fun times, let us not forget to think about Samuel Bronfman who founded the distillery, the Seagram Company Ltd. which provides the liquors for your parties. Getting to more serious matters, do you know that the famous architects David Ewart and John M. Lyle were also Canadians?
