ArkAngel: Sybarite: Some believe that it presents a stereotype of Asians excelling in technology and/or the sciences.

Yeah, who would want that stereotype?

The same people who don't want black guys stereotyped as having a large penis


first, it's not just a stereotype that Asians excel in the sciences. visit some college campuses, real colleges not paper mills, and see who is filling the seats in the egghead classes.

#2, black guys = large penis is an American stereotype, not Canadian.

last, black Asian Canadians not only excel in the sciences, they are also hung like porn stars.

From TFA:

One focus group participant in the region known as Atlantic Canada, the report said, complained that an Asian woman did not represent Canada.

NIce to see the Maratimes are Canada's equivalent to the Deep South.

There's (roughly) parity with the two currencies.

Minimum wage in USA = $7.25 per hour.

The lowest general minimum wage currently in force in a Canadian province is that of Alberta = $9.40 per hour. Only Quebec and Saskatchewan also have sub-$10/hr wages.

But yes...

...it buys Snow.

Oh, FFS. I've had it up to my caucasian male nipples with everything having to become a debate on political correctness because one whiny, thin-skinned group of overly-sensitive ass waffles is offended by something the changing of which is only going to offend some other whiny, thin-skinned group of overly-sensitive ass waffles. This is why shiat doesn't get done. The woman on that bill is too Asian! This isn't Asia! Asians don't represent Canada! Okay, fine, we'll make her "generic". But you made her white! White isn't generic! WELL THEN WE'LL MAKE IT A SCIENTIST FARKING BEAVER, NOW STFU AND SIT THE HELL DOWN.

When the hell did the human race become such a bunch of farking nipple-suckling babies?

I'm just glad I live in a more civilized country here in the states. It would suck to be surrounded by nothing but racist shiatbags like they have up there.

uber humper: I always thought it was interesting that the Philippine 100 PHP bill has an American Flag on it:

Well, this focus group participant was probably surprised to see the extra 0 on the bill as well. They should have ignored the comment, because so few Maritimers are going to actually see $100 bills in practice that it won't matter. Unless their job-seeking cousins who have moved to Alberta come home for a visit.

Microscope: Hundreds of years of research development in Europe; Galileo probably the most famous of innovators

Insulin: Eighty years of research in Europe, US and Canada. Two Nobel prizes went to two Canadian men for the extraction and application of Insulin.


Needless to say, an Asian woman best embodies this history.

TFA: "Others feel that an Asian should not be the only ethnicity represented on the bank notes. Other ethnicities should also be shown."

Give the science lady an afro and change the stern looking dude to Hitler.
