Leapin' Loonies! US $ buys more
It's welcome news for American visitors to Canada. Finally, our dollar gets us a lot more than it did for the past few years.
Today, a $100 item in Canada will cost somebody from the U.S. only $77 and change. Or a $200 hotel room in Canada will now be only $155 US. That's gotta make hotels, stores and restaurants happy in Canada -- but the honeymoon may be over for Canadians hoping to spend another cheap winter down south as snowbirds.
The Leaping Loonies are an Australian old-time acrobatic act
