“I want to try the impossible to show it can be done” as Terry Fox said.
Let us make this come true by nominating Terry- the hero to be the face of the $5 Bill.
As residents of Port Coquitlam and hometown of Terry Fox, we are hopeful that many Canadians will actively participate in this campaign and mark its 40th anniversary to recognize his great cancer research legacy.
This open call for nominations is another great opportunity to highlight the many stories of heroes, sometimes unsung ones, who have helped shape the Canada we live in today.
I hope this process sparks conversations and encourages us all to learn more about our great country and its remarkable people.
The new $5 bill is expected to be in circulation in three or four years.
