This past November saw the death of a quintessentially Canadian icon, Pierre Berton.
In Berton's lifetime, he produced countless columns; wrote fifty books, won over thirty literary awards, made numerous television appearances, received dozens of honourary degrees, and was appointed as companion of the Order of Canada in 1986.
He also taught young Canadians the proper way to roll a joint
