I really think it's time we changed the portraits on our folding money. Outside of the Queen, we have three racists who were probably anti-semitic, and one anti-semitic who was probably racist. I like the ten with Viola Desmond on it (black lady who was arrested for sitting in the "whites only" section of a movie theatre in Nova Scotia). Formatting her portrait so it is upright when the bill is held in "portrait" format was a good touch.
Come to think of it, why politicians on money? The Queen should go too, for other reasons.
First we need to break the Monarchy tie. This means getting rid of the Governor-General. A plum position, costs us millions and is referred to as "The Queens representative in Canada". This is ludicrous. The British Consul/Ambassador should be doing this job, at no cost to Canadians.
When they picked the portrait for the 10$, they picked the wrong one in my opinion. Therein lies the problem; we cannot please everybody. Get rid of all the people pictures. Do like we do on the coinage: beavers, elk, loons, bears. We are not lacking for beautiful and distinctive animal life in this country.
