  • 10 Canadian women who (probably) won’t make it onto the new bills -- but should!

    By Simone Olivero and Erica Rae Chong Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently announced that an “iconic Canadian woman” will appear on the next issue of bank notes.  “A Canadian woman will be featured on the very first of the next series of bills expected in 2018,” Trudeau said. “Today, on International Women’s Day, the Bank of Canada is taking the first step by launching public consultations to select an iconic Canadian woman to be featured on this new bill.” So far, votes have been pouring in for various historical figures, saints, activists and artists but we thought it would be fun to look at some of the other iconic Canadian women who (likely) won’t make the cut.
