Conservative MPs including the Desnethé-Missinippi-Churchill River’s Gary Vidal is calling for the most decorated Canadian war veteran to be the face of a new $5 banknote. A video released on Facebook Sunday is requesting the public to sign a petition in support of the late Sgt. Tommy Prince to receive the honour. The two-and-a-half minute video features Vidal, as well as Shadow Minister for Crown-Indigenous Relations Jamie Schmale and MP Tom Kmiec. “There are many great Canadians worthy of consideration, but Conservatives are suggesting Sgt. Tommy Prince, a great Indigenous Canadian, who embodies duty, courage, bravery and patriotism,” Kmiec said. In the video, Vidal explained Prince, born October 1915, attended residential school from the age of five until Grade 8, before joining the military at the age of 24 in 1940 after several rejections. Prince was a founding member of the Elite First Canadian Parachute Battalion and the Devil’s Brigade during the Second World War.
