Canadian pianists

I've just heard Rob Cowan on Radio 3 nominate someone I've never heard of as the "other great Canadian pianist" (beside Glenn Gould). Isn't Angela Hewitt one of the greats, not to mention Oscar Peterson?

[Later] Cowan obviously received many Tweets. He has amended his assertion to the effect that he considers Anton Kuerti to be under-appreciated. He also added the name of Marc-André Hamelin, who I should have remembered, to the roster.
