Ô Canada! I am sooooooooo proud of my country! Last Thursday, Finance Minister Bill Morneau and Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz announced the selection of the Black rights activist, Viola Desmond image to replace Sir John A. Macdonald, Canada’s first prime minister, on the 10$ bill, in the beginning of 2018.
Black rights activist Viola Desmond, who was jailed for defiantly sitting in the “whites only” section of a Nova Scotia film house, will be the first Canadian woman to be featured on the country’s $10 bill. AMEN, God is good all the time!
