Canada celebrates the arts on new currency

How cool is Canada? For their newest update to their national currency, instead of featuring government buildings they are celebrating various aspects of daily Canadian life, including images and quotes from various Canadian artists and poets. The themes, based on bill size: $5 - Children at play; $10 - Remembrance and peacekeeping; $20 - Arts and culture; $50 - Nation building; and $100 - Exploration and innovation. First Rush, then Douglas Coupland, and now this! Go Canada! (Thanks to Andrew Taylor at "The Artful Manager" for pointing this out.)
