Bank of Canada Gets Maple Leaf Wrong

25th January 2013

Read it.

Julian Starr, a professor at the University of Ottawa who is normally consulted by the Royal Canadian Mint on the accuracy of its botanical designs, was not asked to review this one. “I would have said immediately that it would be best to make it look more like a native maple leaf,” he said. “I mean this to me is just . . . wrong.”

Bureaucrats can never do anything right, eh?
