Sorry Tonya Harding.

Recently the Bank of Canada released a short list of women eligible to be featured on the 2018 series of banknotes. The list included "two activists, a poet, an engineer and an athlete," meaning that many celebrities, writers, musicians and disgraced figure skaters will not be making the cut.


Instead, we thought about what it might look like to have some unexpected female Canadian figures on our dough:

Shania Twain



Regal af.

Sook Yin Lee


Eden Robinson



Sarah McLaughlan



Hatecopy



Margaret Atwood



Literally no difference.

Tanya Tagaq



k.d. lang



Arguably has done more for queer Canadians than any politician.

Grimes



Celine Dion



National treasure.

Chad Kroeger



Because it's 2016.

The Bank of Canada will be announcing the new notes on December 8. Our money's on Chad.
