An apology today from The Bank of Canada over the way the image of an "Asian-looking'' woman was removed from the initial design for new $100 banknotes. Governor Mark Carney today apologized to anyone offended by the decision.
The bank came under fire last week when it was learned the image of an Asian-looking woman was removed from the design after some focus groups complained. Another image of a Caucasian-looking woman was substituted.
The Chinese Canadian National Council called the move racist, and demanded the bank change its policies.
