What makes a person influential? Many things. Such people are adaptable, willing to learn, and have deep curiosity. They are confident that they have something to offer to the world. Famous people have a powerful presence, and their actions, words, and work motivate others, influencing the course of events. Influential Canadians such as Alexander Bell, Neil Young, and Pierre Trudeau raised awareness on critical issues, and solved problems that intrigued people for centuries. Such people made tremendous contributions to the world of politics, science, and arts and shaped the way we use technology. They struggled against stagnation and bigotry and heightened awareness of the need of political, social, and humanitarian reforms.
Influential people experimented with new styles, brought taboo subjects, absorbed readers in fantasies, and redefined the boundaries of the possible and impossible. Famous people have helped make our lives easier and better. Whether they sculpted, painted, played, or wrote, art masters contributed to cultural change. Their stylistic contributions inspired new generations of artists who explored non-traditional subjects, forms, and materials. Famous artists invented a variety of experimental techniques and art forms, and their works of art are treasured around the world. They exerted a tremendous influence on mainstream pop culture and shaped the tastes of millions of people.
Famous people have fought for progressive reforms, women’s suffrage, civil rights, anti-trust regulations, and public sector reforms. Such people drive human progress because they are willing to be co-workers with God, as Martin Luther King once said.
