2016年加拿大年度新闻人物出炉 杜鲁多风头被抢

继评出2016年加拿大年度新闻之后,加通社又选出今年的年度新闻人物(Newsmaker of the Year)。你猜可能又是杜鲁多吧,既然杜鲁多今年刚刚上台一年,在国内支持率一直居高不下,在外也是人见人爱,风头无俩。但这回你猜错了,今年的新闻人物是52岁的Gord Downie(下图),加拿大著名摇滚乐队(Tragically Hip)的主唱兼歌曲作家。

这名歌手在乐队30年之久,他在今年5月宣布,称自己确诊患上脑癌,消息震动加拿大。他说从去年12月确诊以来,尽管经历巨大痛苦,他仍然努力与癌症搏斗。

今年8月,他带病坚持与乐队一起参加夏季巡演。在巡演的最后一个晚上,他在这场全国直播的电视音乐会上宣布为原住民歌唱,呼吁政府和社会各界关注原住民的境况。

就在本月初,在魁北克加蒂诺(Gatineau)举行的原住民议会特别大会上,Gord Downie被原住民封为“在星星之间行走的人”("Man Who Walks Among the Stars")。

小杜鲁多得票第二高

加拿大总理杜鲁多获得27%的选票,名列第二位;而发生山火灾害的阿省默堡(Fort McMurray)的消防局长阿兰(Darby Allen)和巴西里约奥运会四枚奖牌得主、多伦多16岁美少女Penny Oleksiak 则并列第三,各获12%的选票。

纵观加通社70年来评选年度新闻人物的历史,政治人物尤其加拿大总理被选中的次数最多,其中最高记录由小杜老爸皮埃尔-杜鲁多(Pierre Trudeau)创下:不仅当选11次,而且在1968-75年连续8年当选,还在1999年当选20世纪新闻人物(Canadian Newsmaker of the 20th Century)。

(1973年8月,老总理大人用手斜跨着小杜鲁多,从总理办公大楼前公园里走过,公园里的卫兵对他们行礼。)

另外一名足以和老杜鲁多相提并论的政治人物应该是皮尔逊(Lester Pearson)。咱们移民可能不知道他是何许人也,但你应该知道皮尔逊国际机场吧?多伦多的这个机场就是以他的名字命名的。皮尔逊曾经9次被评为年度新闻人物,其中在1950-53年、1955-56年、1963-64年三次至少有两年连续获奖,其中前两个连续是以外交家身份获奖,后一个连续则是以政治家身份(总理)获奖。此外,皮尔逊还因在化解苏伊士运河危机中的贡献而获得1957年诺贝尔和平奖,成为唯一获此崇高荣誉的加拿大人。

其实,年度新闻人物并非全是政治家、社会名人或“好人”,臭名昭著的坏蛋也能入选:其中最为华人熟悉的如杀害中国留学生林俊的凶手马格诺达(Luka Rocco Magnotta)是2012年新闻人物;涉嫌残忍奸杀女军官和民妇的前空军上校威廉姆斯(Russell Williams)为2010年度新闻人物...
