Daniel is in his twenties, with short curly brown hair and wears glasses, jeans, and a burgundy TVO Kids sweatshirt.

Daniel says WELCOME BACK TO TVO K NEWS.
OUR FEATURED STORY TODAY IS
ABOUT VIOLA DESMOND,
A LEGENDARY BLACK CANADIAN.

A picture of Viola appears on a screen behind him.

Daniel says IN 1946, VIOLA WAS ARRESTED
AND CONVICTED FOR THE
REFUSAL TO PAY THE RIGHT AMOUNT
FOR HER MOVIE TICKET.
THE STUDENTS OF THOMAS WELLS
PUBLIC SCHOOL WILL TELL YOU
THE REAL STORY BEHIND VIOLA
DESMOND'S HEROIC LEGACY.

A clip rolls on the screen.

A boy in a striped sweater says LET'S TAKE A LOOK.
VIOLA DESMOND WAS BORN
IN NOVA SCOTIA.

A boy in a black sweater says SHE WORKED AS A BEAUTICIAN.

The boy in the striped sweater says VIOLA WAS A CANADIAN
BUSINESS WOMAN.

The boy in the black sweater says SHE WENT TO A MOVIE THEATRE
TO WATCH A MOVIE.

A boy in a checker red shirt says AND SHE ASKED THE PEOPLE,
"CAN I HAVE A TICKET,
AND CAN I SIT DOWN ON
THE BOTTOM ROW?"

A caption reads "Bottom level was for whites only."

A boy in a polka dotted shirt says WELL, THE CASHIER SAID, "NO,
THIS IS NOT FOR YOUR PEOPLE.
YOU HAVE TO SIT IN
THE BALCONY."

The caption changes to "Balcony level was for blacks only."

The boy in the checker shirt says SHE BOUGHT ONE TICKET
AND WENT INSIDE.

A girl in a striped T-shirt says SHE DIDN'T WANT TO SIT
IN THE BALCONY SEATS.

The boy in the black sweater says SHE CHOSE TO SIT AT
THE FRONT ANYWAY.
USHERS CAME AND THEY ASKED HER
TO GO AND SIT AT THE BALCONY.

The boy in the checker shirt says AND SHE SAID, "NO, I HAVE
RIGHTS TO SIT DOWN HERE."

The boy in the black sweater says SO HE CALLED THE POLICE.

Another boy with a checker shirt says THEY ARRESTED HER.

The boy in the black sweater says THEY BLAMED THE CASE
AGAINST HER.

The boy in the striped sweater says VIOLA HELPED START CIVIL
RIGHTS IN CANADA.

A girl in pink T-shirt and hoodie says AND SHE ALSO INSPIRED BLACK
PEOPLE TO TRY TO
PUT AN END TO SEGREGATION.

A boy in a gray sweatshirt says WHITE PEOPLE AND BLACK
PEOPLE SHOULDN'T HAVE
DIFFERENT RIGHTS JUST BECAUSE OF
WHAT COLOUR SKIN THEY HAVE.

A boy with a hooded sweatshirt says I THINK SHE WAS BRAVE THAT SHE
STOOD UP FOR HER CULTURE
AND HER HERITAGE.

The girl in pink says VIOLA DESMOND IS GETTING
PUT ON THE CANADIAN
TEN DOLLAR BILLS,
BECAUSE SHE STOOD UP FOR
BLACK PEOPLE'S RIGHTS
AND HER OWN RIGHTS.

Now Daniel stands in the studio with Nam.

Nam is in her forties, with curly brown hair and wears glasses, jeans, a printed red, white and blue shirt and a black cardigan sweater.

Daniel says SUCH AN INSPIRING WOMAN.
NOW, WITH MORE ON VIOLA DESMOND,
WE HAVE NAM KIWANUKA,
JOURNALIST AND HOST FOR
THE AGENDA
WITH STEVE PAIKIN.

Nam says HI, DANIEL.
HI, TVO KIDS.

Daniel says IT'S SUCH AN HONOUR
FOR YOU TO BE HERE.

Nam says THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR HAVING ME.

Daniel says SO WHAT IS A HAPPY ENDING
TO VIOLA'S STORY?

Nam says WELL, 64 YEARS LATER IN 2010,
THE GOVERNMENT OF NOVA SCOTIA
DROPPED HER CONVICTION,
AND HER NAME WAS CLEARED.
THE PREMIER OF NOVA SCOTIA
EVEN APOLOGIZED,
RECOGNIZING THAT DESMOND'S
CONVICTION WAS NOT FAIR,
AND THE CHARGES SHOULD
NEVER HAVE BEEN LAID
IN THE FIRST PLACE.

Daniel says RIGHT, SO VIOLA IS REPLACING
SIR JOHN A. MACDONALD
ON THE 10 DOLLAR BILL.
SO WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT,
AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO
CELEBRATE AND REMEMBER
PEOPLE LIKE, VIOLA DESMOND?

Nam says IT'S SUPER IMPORTANT,
BECAUSE SHE'S THE FIRST
CANADIAN WOMAN TO BE
ON OUR MONEY.
AND IT'S ALSO REALLY IMPORTANT
TO CELEBRATE HER LEGACY,
BECAUSE WHAT SHE DID
WAS SUPER BRAVE.
THIS WAS IN 1940'S.
AND BY SITTING DOWN, SHE WAS
ACTUALLY STANDING UP
FOR THE RIGHTS OF BLACK
PEOPLE IN CANADA.
AND A LOT OF PEOPLE
KNOW ABOUT ROSA PARKS.
ROSA PARKS HAS BEEN
SAID TO KICK START
THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT
IN THE STATES.
AND SHE DID THAT NINE YEARS
AFTER VIOLA DESMOND.
AND SHE DID THAT
HERE IN CANADA.
AND A FEW YEARS LATER,
NOVA SCOTIA ACTUALLY GOT
RID OF SEGREGATION.
SO WE NEED TO CELEBRATE,
VIOLA DESMOND.
SHE'S A TRAILBLAZER.

Daniel says YEAH, TRAILBLAZER.
MOVING FORWARD, RIGHT?
THANK YOU SO MUCH, NAM.
AND ON BEHALF OF TVO KIDS,
YOU'RE WELCOME BACK HERE
ANY TIME.

Nam says YAY! I'LL BE BACK.
(GIGGLING)

Daniel says TVO KIDS, THAT'S ALL
FROM US TODAY.
I'M DANIEL, AND THAT'S
WHAT'S HAPPENING.
