Canada will be getting a banknote with a woman on it, other than the Queen that is. She’s been there forever and though she is female, she’s terribly Eurocentric and a monarch so she doesn’t count.
Recently, he assured Canadians that the new issue of paper money in 2018 will definitely feature a Canadian woman. Here’s what his Finance Minister, Bill Morneau said about it:
“One of the very first things I had the honour of doing as new finance minister was asking the Governor of the Bank of Canada ... whether it is in fact possible to put a woman on a bank note.”
These ladies, er, gents, have their priorities straight! Never mind that the Loonie is in free-fall, there’s turmoil in the oil sands and the manufacturing sector continues to shrink. One of the “very first things” our Finance Minister did was to make sure we’ll be getting a redesigned, gender-correct banknote in a couple of years.
Watch my report to hear some of the names that have been floated so far, hear my view of them — through a “social justice” lens of course, and to hear my bulletproof suggestion.
Hint: My candidate is a visible minority, an immigrant and someone championed by the progressives. She’s not shy about speaking her mind; in fact, she wants Canada to change to suit her preferences, not vice-versa. She definitely has chutzpah!
And she’s even more perfect if you’re a Liberal because she’s an anti-conservative Islamist.
Anyone got change for a fifty? I need to buy some Advil.
