‘Three topless women and the Twin Towers’: Canadians baffled by picture of WWI memorial on their new $20 dollar bill

O Canada! The new $20 banknote was said to be 'too pornographic' by some focus groups because it featured the naked figures representing Justice, Peace and Hope on the WWI memorial in France (right)

Canadians have been left confused over the country’s new $20-dollar bill which some have said appeared to feature three naked woman and the World Trade Center towers.

The government was rolling out the new banknote as part of an upgrade of the monetary system. It actually features the Vimy Memorial in northern France, the largest monument overseas for Canadian soldiers lost the First World War.

However many Canadians believed the bill showed the Twin Towers and three topless women along with the head of state, Queen Elizabeth II.

The Vimy Memorial, a nationalist symbol of bravery and sacrifice, was seen on the $20 when it was unveiled by the Bank of Canada in Ottawa last week.

Focus groups, typically made up of a wide-range of citizens from different generations, had examined the note before it was made public.
