A woman who stood up for the rights of black people in Nova Scotia, and went to jail for it, will be honoured today when the new $10 bill featuring her image is unveiled.
Harrison said the bank saw a lot of people engage with the website past year because of the Easter egg, and it wanted to do something for the new $10 bill that would have the same kind of impact.
The central bank also added a so-called Easter egg to its website last spring when it unveiled the design for its $10 bank note to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation. "But it is an important story, because it shows that standing up for what we believe, whether it's on the step of Parliament Hill or in a movie theatre in New Glasgow, N.S., can make our country and our world a better place for future generations".
The back of the $10 bank note features the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. "She's just one of many of us who have suffered". When she was asked to sit in a Blacks-only balcony section, Desmond refused to move and she was arrested. Desmond, a beautician and entrepreneur from north end Halifax who sold her own line of cosmetics, was headed to Sydney, N.S., when her vehicle broke down. Desmond, suffering from myopia and not seen anything from the back row, sat on one of the seats for whites and refused to leave.
"Viola Desmond carried out a singular act of courage", Saney said.
Desmond died in 1965, and the province gave her a posthumous free pardon in 2010, recognizing the injustice she and other black Nova Scotians suffered. "She's not leading the movement because he was ahead of his time".
