Will boycott new Canada $10 bill re Viola Desmond

Will boycott new Canada $10 bill re Viola Desmond to be unveiled this Thursday

Stocked-up with $10 bills at bank today

Will only accept change in old $10 bills or other denominations

As Viola Desmond is featured on the $10 note, and another iconic Canadian will be featured on the future $5 note, Canada’s first Prime Minister, Sir John A. Macdonald, and our first francophone Prime Minister, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, will be honoured on our higher value bank notes. This will take place when the higher value notes are redesigned.

These changes mean that former prime ministers William Lyon Mackenzie King and Sir Robert Borden will no longer be portrayed on bank notes. The $20 denomination will continue to feature the reigning monarch.
