I'm inclined to agree somewhat with KrisW in that, if they're going to put a picture of someone, it should be a real someone. If the bill is supposed to recognize the medical advances that Canadians have made, they could just put a bunch of images of whatever those things are.
Join the revolution & take back our holidays!
Change Black Friday into Buy Nothing Day, and don't take your credit cards to work on Cyber Monday.
Shift Your Shopping from mass marketers & big box stores to your local independent retailers & small artisans.
Practice a Buy Nothing Christmas. Instead of buying more things, give gifts of your time, your energy, and maybe even some unwanted things around your home; organize a used items gift swap among your family and/or friends.

I never consider a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosopy, as a cause for withdrawing from a friend. --Thomas Jefferson
I disagree. The spirit of any country derives not just from their famous people, but as much and maybe more so from the "common folks" that you see on the street every day. I would be pleased as punch if we had money honoring farmers, police officers, teachers, et cetera, all the normal people that make up our country.

Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
Yeah we are just used to famous people because thats the common traditional thing to do. I don't think its necessary.
This really bothers me. Canada is still so whitewashed.
Also, I think that Asian women are still very sexualized in Canada. Asian women aren't just there to be the submissive partner in a relationship. We should be able to celebrate Asian women in professional roles, on our money or elsewhere. As the mother of a Canadian-Asian girl I am very worried about the messages she gets from Canadian media.
