“The Bank of Canada considered celebrating gay marriages, black hockey players, and turban-wearing RCMP officers on its new plastic bank notes”

Whitewashed Bank of Canada $100 Bill
And so the Harper Conservative-inspired whitewashing of Canada continues.
Last summer, we learned that the Bank of Canada had nixed the image of an Asian-looking female scientist from its new $100 polymer banknote “after focus groups raised questions about her ethnicity.” Apparently, members of the “focus groups” had objected because they felt that her ethnicity wasn’t representative of Canada. Now The Canadian Press is reporting that the bank has nixed the images of non-whites and gays from it’s new series of $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 polymer bills as well.
A very ugly racist game is on here. It’s taxpayer-funded.
