Canada’s new $10 bill officially went into circulation yesterday.
It’s the first vertically oriented banknote in the country and the first regularly circulating bill to feature on the front, a Canadian woman, civil rights advocate Viola Desmond.
In 1946 in New Glasgow, Desmond was arrested for refusing to leave a whites-only section of a theatre.
63 years later, after she had died, the province issued an apology and pardon.
The Canadian Museum For Human Rights is featured on the back of the bill, there’s an excerpt from the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and the Bank of Canada says an eagle feather also incorporated on the bill, is in recognition of the rights of Indigenous people.
