Well that’s just fucking great. One of the nice things about living in this crazy, gun-loving, God-fearing, predatory, dinosaur-riding country was the ability to take my mighty American dollars home to Canada where I could buy and sell my friends like so much poutine…. WELL, THE DREAM IS OVER.

Canadian “banking experts” (two guys named Dave and one guy named Murray who meet at the Tim Horton’s every Wednesday morning) seem to think that our sensible, measured banking system has allowed the Canadian economy to weather most of the recent WORLD FINANCIAL FIRESTORM. Over the next couple of quarters, as Frostbacks continue to bump up interest rates, the loonie could very well exceed the greenback by September. Which, just, fuck. (Though this will be great news for Canadian hockey teams. Woo!)
