Interesting to see that the $100 note was not mentioned in the motion.  Not sure why the delay.   >:(

  Smile from your heart.  ;D

I'm sure there aren't any senators who have seen a $100 note recently to know if the inscription is there or not.  Senators, like most Canadians, only see whatever notes come out of the ATM, I'm sure.

Still, it's nice to see that currency is on the minds of our parliamentarians.  If only they would get moving on eliminating the penny.

Bank’s strategy to maintain confidence in bank notes:
- Develop bank notes that are increasingly more difficult to counterfeit
- Increase the routine verification of bank notes by retailers
- Maintain the high quality of bank notes in circulation
- Promote counterfeit deterrence by law-enforcement officers and prosecutors

Currently developing Canada’s next bank note series, expected to be introduced in late 2011 (latest design, using state-of-theart anti-counterfeiting technology launched in 2004)

Bank of Canada to Begin Circulating New $100 Polymer Bank Note

OTTAWA – The Bank of Canada will begin circulating the new $100 bill – Canada’s first polymer bank note – on Monday, 14 November 2011. The new $100 note, which celebrates Canada’s contributions to innovation in the field of medicine, will be featured at an official event taking place in Toronto, Ontario, at the MaRS Centre – a hub for public-private sector innovation and collaboration between the business and scientific communities.

Speaking at the event will be Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of Canada, and Dr. Ilse Treurnicht, Chief Executive Officer of MaRS Discovery District.

Audio and video webcasts of the event will be available on the Bank's website. At the conclusion of the event, members of the media will have an opportunity to meet with experts to find out more about the various features of the new bill, participate in a tour of the MaRS Centre and purchase a $100 new polymer bank note.

"Since 1991, 14 November has been designated World Diabetes Day by the International Diabetes Federation and the World Health Organization − a fitting date on which to issue a new Canadian bank note celebrating medical innovation, given that Canadians played a key role in the discovery of insulin as a treatment for diabetes." and unquote

One can even argue that this can be viewed as a 'Commemorative' note too.

Welcome anyone who wishes to exchange uncirculated banknotes with me. Many Thanks
