...Canadians respond with a list including some of the Conservatives' biggest adversaries.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/top-10-canadian-heroes-list-includes-pierre-trudeau-jack-layton-1.2676398

In order: Pierre Trudeau, Terry Fox, Tommy Douglas, Lester B. Pearson, Chris Hadfield, David Suzuki, Jack Layton*, Sir John A. MacDonald, Wayne Gretzky, and Roméo Dallaire.

His name appears to be missing?

Sure... but I think that's deliberate.

Stylistic choice by the illustrator.
