I thought I wanted to live in Canada

.. until now.

Then again, there's a reason why their dollar is still worthless compared to the US dollar.

So stupid..

Our dollar is worth more than the USD right now. Thanks for the insight though.

You do realize that this means 1 USD is only 99 cents in Canada, right...

You're kind of embarrassing yourself here...

Um yes. That means theirs is worth more.
It costs you 1.0033 US to buy 1 Canadian.

More importantly, can we still exchange for bacon or syrup?

I don't know, what's your exchange rate on obesity?

See, we've got stereotypes we can use, too!

I"m just playing, 1 USD = 1 slice of bacon and 2 teaspoons of Maple Syrup bundled for the first 2 months (up to a maximum of half a slice of bacon and a drop of Maple Syrup per month, $5 for every drop of Maple syrup after that).

Yes, but you pay 5 igloos a month to get another teaspoon.

the difference between "worthless" and "basically the same international monetary value" is rather little in your world apparently.

don't act so smug correcting f00kie when your original statement was even more daft.

Over the past few years the Canadian Dollar has held a value ABOVE the Greenback.
I am sorry you didn't know.

I will concede that we are getting hosed, screwed and raked over the coals when it comes to broadband fees. The CRTC has bent over backwards and around again to kiss the backsides of the incumbents; in doing so the end consumer ends up paying for decades old technology at futuristic prices. Therefore, in a cross boarder ISP comparison, you guys have last laugh.

Around 15 years ago, we were at about 59 cents at the modern low. We were above 1.10 US in 2008, and have again recently climbed above par this year now, too!

Should check your facts before spewing your spew.

And by the way, nobody gets our beer, bacon or Maple syrup unless it's cleared through ME.

It's not worthless. It's just that nobody wants those funny-coloured bills and $1 & $2 coins.

It's the same value as the the USD.

We're the only country that takes Canadian money at par ...

Last I checked, it was par or worth more then the US Dollar. ... also because of corrupt influence of Corporate greed.
