Canada unveils $10 bill featuring civil rights icon Viola Desmond

The Star:

The bill marks a growing recognition of Desmond’s refusal to leave the whites-only section of a Nova Scotia movie theatre on Nov. 8, 1946 and the seminal role it played in Canada’s civil rights movement.

Yugi the racist, was not even born yet when Viola Desmond  was fighting discrimination in Nova Scotia. 

His Excellency Y22 and his Krsna bhai Gilly are happy to see the face of Viola D on the new CAD$10 banknote. It's a pity Viola D cannot be featured on a Bitcoin. 

Congrats to Viloa D. 

Mits since you have been unleashing false accusations, people who hold zero racial bias have a ton of mixed grandchildren. Have you any mixed grandchildren ?

My children are too young to get married so they are exempt from the question.

Awaiting your answer.

Would be nice, Mitwah will be campaigning for them like he did for the AFC. The US had it's first Black President, I am waiting on Canada to give us a first Black P.M.

There is higher chance of having a brown PM since a lot of Indians are involved in politics.

If brown people have a higher chance then Mitwah should run for PM.  He loves politics.

It's called Guyanese bonding.  I don't think you will ever push the like button on attacks on anyone. You are an unapologetic peace maker.

Former President Barack Obama, similar to a few other past presidents do have African heritage,

Former President Barack Obama is not a Black president. He is half white - mother's side - and half African - his father's side.

Of note, other past Former Presidents with African or used also Black, are Dwight Eisenhower, Abraham Lincoln, Calvin Cooldge, Andrew Jackson.
