Peter John Gzowski (known colloquially as Mr. Canada) CC (July 13, 1934 - January 24, 2002) was a Canadian broadcaster, writer and reporter, most famous for his work on the CBC radio show Morningside. His first biographer argued that Gzowski's contribution to Canadian media must be considered in the context of efforts by a generation of Canadian nationalists to understand and express Canada's cultural identity. Gzowski wrote books, hosted television shows, and worked at a number of newspapers and at Maclean's magazine. It is estimated that he conducted 27,000 interviews as host of Morningside. Gzowski was known for a friendly but at times somewhat gruff interviewing style.
