The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 47, November 19, 2006, Article 16

AND THE NAME OF THE TOONIE BEAR IS...

Churchill!  Steve Woodland forwarded an email message sent by the
Royal Canadian Mint to those who voted on names for the bear on the
Canadian $2 coin (or "toonie").  Links to previous E-Sylum articles
on the topic are below.

"Well, the polls are closed and the results are in! It's been an
exciting few weeks, hasn't it? Now, after ten years of being ‘that
handsome polar bear on Canada's Toonie,' I finally have a name –
thanks to you! Churchill is really cool and I am so proud to share
the name with such an amazing Canadian city. It's the best birthday
present ever!

Did you know you were one of 166,635 people who voted to give me a
name? It was a pretty close race between Churchill and Wilbert. In
fact, near the end, I wasn't sure who I was going to be!"
