Obviously, the answer is: The Long Way. (Hello…helloo…is this website on??)
Canada’s new $10 note is interesting for a couple of reasons: aside from the vertical orientation, it’s the first to feature a Canadian woman (that took long enough)…she is Viola Desmond.
Desmond lived in Nova Scotia from 1914-1965. She’s known for her success as a businesswoman, and also standing up for civil rights.
In 1946 she refused to leave a whites-only area of a movie theatre and was jailed and fined as a result. Her court case was the first known legal challenge against racial segregation brought forth by a black woman in Canada.
Side note: if the Bank of Canada ever decides to do a bill honouring our Graeme “Flash” Gordon, this long-ways bill would be the perfect format. If you don’t get what that means, DM me 🙂 -Clay
