Viola Desmond will be on the $10 bill.
There's an excting (and long overdue TBH) change coming to Canada's $10 bills: They will now feature the face of an extraordinary Canadian woman.
The shortlist for the spot was announced earlier this year, and included the suffragette Idola Saint-Jean and Olympian Bobbie Rosenfeld, but it was civl rights activist Viola Desmond who the Bank of Canada ultimately chose for the prime spot on our blue bank note.
It was for such a time as this that Heritage Minutes were created, so we'll refer you to the spot released about Ms. Desmond last year for the full primer on the Nova Scotia native (but the TL:DR version is that she was an entrepreneur ahead of her time who played a pivotal role in the Canadian civil rights struggle):
The bills will be in circulation in 2018.
"I really don’t let that stuff get to me."
In a new interview with Complex, Sofia Richie, daughter of music icon Lionel Richie, opens up about the challenges she has faced while working in the modelling industry. The 5-foot-6 model says she's often criticized because of her petite stature. "People obviously don’t respect some of the shoots I do because I’m short," she explained.
However the 18-year-old model she promises she doesn't let criticism faze her. "It’s not like I called and begged these designers to work with me," she says. "They felt my vibe and we were cool and that’s that. I really don’t let that stuff get to me."
Other highlights of the interview? Richie did not want to talk about Justin Bieber. Richie's publicist made it clear that "no questions" could be asked about the former fling. Sad face.
While the status of Sofia and Justin's romance remains unclear, one thing is certain. Right now Sofia is focusing on her career. "I'm super interested in having a fashion line which I am kind of working on, but I really love modelling because I get to be involved with clothes and designers. I get to hear them out and see what they're interested in. I'm kind of taking notes in the corner."
There are two types of people in the world: Those who can watch this 50 Shades Darker trailer with a straight face, and those who can't.
With no judgement either way, here's the brand new teaser for Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson's second round as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, featuring masquerade costumes, helicopters, and approximately one shirtless Jamie Dornan per second. As you might expect from an R-rated film things get NSFW pretty quickly, FYI.
50 Shades Darker hits theatres Valentine's Day 2017.
