Let's put Agnes Macphail on a Canadian banknote!

This petition had 223 supporters

The new Canadian government has reached out to Canadians for help in designing a new Canadian banknote in celebration of our 150th birthday. This is a great opportunity to celebrate the remarkable contributions of Agnes Macphail: the first woman elected to the Canadian House of Commons. Agnes was a powerful advocate for farmers and labourers, and she was the unstoppable, driving force behind reforming our penal system. She was passionate, compassionate, fiercely intelligent and had a very sharp tongue: a great asset in the 14 years that she remained the sole woman in the House of Commons. Agnes Macphail was born and raised in rural Grey County, Ontario.  Please support our bid to create "The Aggie": a new Canadian banknote celebrating the achievements and contributions of this remarkable, trailblazing woman.
