The Public Service Alliance of Canada is pleased that Canada will honour a leading civil rights activist by featuring Viola Desmond on the new $10 bill. CBC described Desmond’s legacy this way: In 1946, nine years before Rosa Parks historic bus ride in the U.S., Viola Desmond sat in a section of a Nova Scotia movie theatre that was reserved for white people, rather than the designated area for black people upstairs. A police officer arrested her and she spent the night in jail charged with not paying a tax of three cents for a downstairs ticket.
