XXX in Orleans
John you are entirely wrong the savings have been substantial and except for the very old and traditional folks I have not heard ANY complaints against them (loonies). The US is a more traditional place it accepts change slowly and holds fast to things they see as representative of their unique culture and there is nothing wrong with that as long as the Greenback is used as a cultural icon then they are willing to pay for that icon. Sometimes decisions should not be made entirely on the basis of money. That said Canadians are less attached to their infrastructure and do not see paper money or things as important we are more connected to ideas that define us like Peace order and good Government. That is the Canadian way.
“XXX-in-Orleans”. Actually “XXX”… it-is you who is wrong. I’m a born and raised Canadian living in this great country … and you live in “Orleans” which makes you think you know Canadian opinions better than we-do.???? How-so XXX???? People in this country have hated these coins since the day they appeared. Until you walk a hundred miles in our shoes carrying 3 lbs of loonies in your pant-pockets everyday then I might even consider the validity of your foreign opinion. I think its time for all opinionated canadians to move-south and start telling americans how they dont have a clue about any of their own money-affairs !!!
I wrote a response but because I was laughing my head off at the time I am sure it will not be printed.
