So all the news that new in Canada today is that our dollar reached parity with the U.S. dollar yesterday. I think you have to have been living under a rock to not know that.
This means that when shopping at home, we truly are paying more for the same products. Look at the back of any greeting card, magazine or book where the price is pre-printed. There’s the U.S. price and the Canadian price. And the Canadian price can be up to $10 more in the case of books.
This also means that places like Disney World that like to offer ‘Canadian at par’ deals to encourage tourism will get laughed at.
But, more importantly, this means asking a very important question:
Who wants to go shopping with me in Buffalo?!! :-)
