Bank of Canada to release new $20 bill
On Wednesday, the Bank of Canada will begin circulating a new $20 bill made of polymer instead of paper.
The new bill pays tribute to the contributions and sacrifices of Canadian men and women in all military conflicts and is being released just before Remembrance Day. The note features a view of the Canadian National Vimy Memorial on its back. (Handout/Bank of Canada/The Canadian Press)
Pacific Sea Nettle at Vancouver Aquarium
A common free-floating scyphozoa that lives in the EastPacific Ocean from Canada to Mexico.
Sea nettles have a distinctive golden-brown bell with a reddish tint. The bell can grow to be larger than one meter (three feet) in diameter in the wild, though most are less than 50 cm across. The long, spiraling, white oral arms and the 24 undulating maroon tentacles may trail behind as far as 3.6 to 4.6m (12 to 15 feet). For humans, its sting is often irritating, but rarely dangerous.
