The Bank of Canada has said that it is not illegal to deface or mutilate banknotes.
The announcement was made after actor Leonard Nimoy’s death last week set off a craze of marking-up banknotes.
The drawings make the country’s former Prime Minister, Wilfrid Laurier, look like Spock, Nimoy’s famous Star Trek character.
