“Putting Terry Fox on the five makes a lot of sense to me. He’s an incredible Canadian hero.” He caught a glimpse of Terry Fox in 1980, when “ Terry Fox is part of our fabric and our culture here in Canada. We should be looking to continue to elevate him, to have his image in our everyday culture.”

In 1980, the 21-year-old athlete — who had already lost a leg to cancer — started his ambitious Marathon of Hope. He hoped to run across Canada to raise money and awareness for cancer research.
He died before he could complete his journey, but in the process he raised over $24 million. The foundation created in his name has raised hundreds of millions of dollars for cancer research in the four decades since Fox's death.
Dave Teixeira, the co-ordinator of the Terry Fox Hometown Run in Port Coquitlam and a longtime fan says Fox is the perfect embodiment a "banknote-able" Canadian.
"Terry just represents, I think, just the best in all of us as Canadians. He's courageous. He's selfless. He's doing things for other people, and he's just an image, I think, would be wonderful to have on a piece of currency here in Canada," he told Gloria Macarenko the host of CBC's.
