Yet again, Canada showed us how it’s done. While we’re too constipated to put a woman on the money, Canada put a black woman on a vertical, polymer bill.

It’s made out polymer, it’s awesomely vertical and it’s featuring Viola Desmond, a black Halifax businesswoman who was jailed, convicted, and fined for refusing to leave a whites-only area of a movie theatre in 1946.

Other countries are getting aboard on the vertical trend too.

Switzerland, Northern Ireland and Venezuela.
