For the first time in 30 years, the Canadian dollar closed above the U.S. dollar in trading today.
Yeah, that’s more about the U.S. dollar being in freefall, but it gives me an excuse to re-post my graphic:
For the weekend at least, Canadians can cross the border into the U.S. and demand “real money” instead of their silly green-coloured paper.
A Globe story about the dollar’s surge curiously linked to a Stephen Colbert video ranting about the dollar. I wanted to watch it, but the Globe’s video player “cannot be played on a Macintosh.” What is this, 1998?
For those interested, Comedy Central has the video (legally) online.
