Historical novelist Jack Whyte (who is Canadian) is causing debate in the U.K. In doing research for his next book, Whyte has postulated that Robin Hood is really based on Scotland's William Wallace (played by Mel Gibson in the movie, 'Braveheart').

In all of the research that I do writing a high caliber blogspot blog like, 'The Ugly Hockey Sweater,' I've also found that things are not always what they seem. For example, did you know that George Bush's friend Jean Poutine was really former Prime Minister Jean Chretien? I was shocked when I first learned that Dalton McGuinty and Michael Ignatieff aren't the same guy. Furthermore, I have a growing belief that Bonhomme, the snowman guest of honour for Quebec City's Winter Carnival, is really Jacques Parizeau in retirement.
