It seems that Lotta scored very high indeed, in the recent Bank of Canada survey. She didn’t make it onto the Bank’s five woman short list, but the indicators are very strong indeed for some future recognition (another bill, a stamp perhaps?) for this Canadian social justice pioneer.
“The nominees included most frequently in a respondent’s top list were Elsie MacGill, Dr. Lotta Hitschmanova, Viola Desmond and Nellie McClung….
“These are also the nominees who rank the highest in terms of those who emulate the four core values (i.e. “She broke or overcame barriers”, “She is inspirational”, “She made a significant change”, and “She left a lasting legacy”).
“There was some variation between the nominees who ranked highest on each core value, but the group tended to remain the same.”
