I chose David Suzuki because he had a hard childhood and he was able to construct a wonderful life. He was on The Greatest Canadian show. His shows are very interesting and so are his books. He is also my hero for the many ways he helps the environment.

David Suzuki was a Japanese Canadian in WWII. He had to go to a mining camp in British Columbia. He had to take a train to the mining camp. It was hard to live there. He lived there for about 8 years. When the war was over, all the Japanese Canadians were given a choice. They could go back to Japan or they could stay in Canada. David decided to stay.
