Postmedis News reports that the government has floated the idea that buildings in Canada may soon be named after prominent Canadian women in history.

The example that the government gives is that a building in St. Catharines, Ontario could be named after Laura Secord, the War of 1812 heroine.

But no decision has yet been made.
