The queen looks like a man. What a horrible picture of her. Canada ceded from England in the 1980's. Why then do they put her picture on their money? Can't they use prime ministers and events from their heretage to represent on their currency?

The monoarchy is part of their heritage.

What if the Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about?

Canada is still a member of the British Commonwealth, even though it's a sovereign nation, and so recognizes the Queen as their head of state - although for practical purposes the country functions independantly under their Prime Minister - and past Prime Ministers are featured on other denominations

Some pretty comical things people are pointing out.
I'm still amused over the first sentence;" a plastic bank note."

That is one way to keep plastic from polluting our world, give it an "assigned" value.

Why is "a plastic bank note" any more comical than "a credit card" (which is largely "a plastic bank note")?

Bank notes don't expire my friend, credit/debt cards expire every 3 or 4 years, then get thrown away as useless.

Me and my girlfriend, (Morgan Fairchild whom I've seen naked) designed this leaf and it is not the Norway Maple. Since we made it up, it's really the 'Noway' maple eh?

Multicultured maple leaf on Canadian currency seems approrpriate.

I thought the mistake was putting a picture of some old lady who thinks she is "Royal". Grow up UK they are leaches.

You would think they would have caught this before the stamp got finalized and put into production. LOL Someone was asleep on their job.

I'm thinking of 12 old men sitting around a table talking about colors, sizes of numbers, the bust of the queen for months or years collecting fat paychecks. Not one of them noticed that the leaf was different.

The leaf is a minor error compared to spelling Canada as Candida and having a picture of George Washington in drag on the bills.

I agree with the Bank. Norway lobes are rounder and more distinct than what's on the bills. Just as much argument for it being a velvet maple.

All those Americans travellers who got refuge and comfort in Canada after all flights were grounded in the US.

And don't forget all the draft-dodgers during the "Nam war, lol.

And three Americans killed in Algeria, two canadians were among the islamic thugs doing the killing.

A sugar leaf instead of a sugar maple leaf? That would be cool...

Forget the maple leaf! What's with the creepy ghost head of the Queen coming out of the smoke from the burning Parliament building?

Clearly the designer was smoking some REALLY good weed (must be from Vancouver) during the design process.
