There are many great teachers in Canada. Are and have been. However, despite my love of Northrope Frye and having grown up on his intellectual bread – I have to voice without a doubt that the nod goes to David Suzuki.

He’s 75 years old today. His seminal program “The Nature of Things” is 50 years old. He’s done more to educate a few generations of Canadians than a thousand teachers.

He’s simply a great teacher. He cares, he’s passionate, he’s active, he is challenging. You see it in his eyes. Look in his eyes and you will learn more about being a great teacher than a stack of books on education.

I watched a few months ago – his “Force of Nature” biography. Inspiring and get a glimpse here. Take a look at his amazing Test tube interactive. Journey with him and his daughter through The Suzuki Diaries.

Thank you David, it is the least I can do to introduce you to maybe one more reader, one more viewer, one more student.
