In case you missed it, the Bank of Canada released a new $10 bill today featuring a portrait of Viola Desmond, a successful black businesswoman Nova Scotian who refused to leave a whites-only area of a movie theatre in 1946.

Wanda Robson, Desmond’s sister and an activist herself, got a sneak peak of the new bill, and her reaction is guaranteed to make you smile.

Despite being 90-years-old, Robson’s level of energy and excitement seems as youthful as anyone’s.
