Viola Desmond, A woman who stood up for the rights of black people in Nova Scotia and went to jail for it, was honoured Thursday as a new $10 bill featuring her image was unveiled. The vertical banknote was unveiled by Finance Minister Bill Morneau and Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz during a ceremony at the Halifax Central Library. But it was Desmond’s sister, Wanda Robson, who was given the honour of formally revealing the design of Canada’s new $10 bill, pulling a black cloth off a blown-up image of the banknote before being handed a wallet-sized version.
