So much for going to Windsor for a cheap night out...

Wonder if they'll now allow vending machines to take their lightweight

"So much for going to Windsor for a cheap night out..."

Could mean more Canadians working their way over to Detroit. Might not be all bad...

This will be good in the long run. No offense to you guys, but Canada is to tied to the USA for trade and economica growth.

With the rising dollar, it will be Canada has to stand on its own two feet a little more, and not rely on the USA to buy all our stuff, etc.

As for Windsor. If you really want to go, then saving ten bucks due to the exchange rate won't stop you.
People gotta stop being cheap :-)

Now if there's only a way to get the toll crossing here in Windsor/ Detroit dropped. As far as I know it is the MOST expensive anywhere on the US/ Canadian border.

The more important question is... Since when has the Canadian dollar been called the "Loonie"?

Since they put a loon on the back, and the two-dollar coin is called a toonie.
