Canada's next bank notes will feature portraits of women

…instead of Spock's great-great-great-grandfather. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made the announcement on Twitter on International Women's Day, and invited the public to nominate women to appear on the new notes.

Nominees will be considered if they meet the following criteria:

They are a Canadian (by birth or naturalization) who has demonstrated outstanding leadership, achievement or distinction in any field, benefiting the people of Canada, or in the service of Canada.

*They have been deceased for at least 25 years.

Submissions of fictional characters will not be considered.
