Sir Wilfred Laurier

The 19th century was the century of the United States.  I think we can claim that it is Canada that shall fill the 20th century.
(Today is Canada Day -- also known as "Canada's birthday."  Sir Wilfred Laurier was the Prime Minister of Canada from 1896 and 1911.  Historians consider him one of Canada's greatest prime minsters, but he was certainly no prophet.)
