147 reasons to love Canada: What deserves a spot on the list?

This July 1, Canada turns 147, and we're celebrating with a list of 147 people, places and things that make this country special. There's more to Canada than poutine, hockey and maple syrup (though we like those too of course) so help us build our list and you could be featured in our Canada Day package. Please use the form below to submit your pick (and don't forget to tell us why it's worthy). You can also upload a photo with your submission.
