The Bank of Canada unveiled a new 10 dollar polymer banknote featuring Civil Rights pioneer Viola Desmond.
Desmond will be the first black person and first woman with no royal blood to appear on a Canadian banknote.
In 1946 she sat in the "Whites only" section of a cinema in New Glasgow. For that she was arrested and fined.
Her act of defiance preceded Rosa Parks by 11 years, but only recently she has been recognized for her actions.
