99.967 cents Canadian

27 posts in this topic

That's the current value of the American dollar.

Last time the Canadian dollar was this high was 1977.

I hope this continues so that we can tell jokes about American money for a change. :AH-HA_wink:

What's really alarming is how fast it's risen. From just over 61 cents US in 2002 to even in 5 years.

A 5 year inventment in straight Canadian cash would have earned an American 62%. Crazy.

BUT THE $64,000 QUESTION IS:

When are Canadian car prices going to come down? We're still paying $65k for a Corvette coupe; $55k for a LTZ Silverado; $21k for a LT Cobalt. That's the same prices as 4 years ago when the $C was .67

The crappy part is, this will cut into GM's bottom line if they do it.

If the CD had risen more slowly, then maybe prices would be closer to the US, but with such a dramatic change you won't see much difference. The impact on people who bought vehicles a few months ago would be too great. How would you like to lose half your car's value in 6 months instead of three years? You'll have everyone walking into a dealership looking to upgrade, but finding out they're so far upside down on their loan payments they have to borrow $25K to buy a $20K vehicle. What will that do to your sales?

So, this means an igloo that used to cost $60,000USD now costs $62,000USD? Will it cost me more to take the dogsled to work at the lumber mill? Should I just buy a plaid shirt and jeans here in the States rather than cross the border to the capital, Toronto, if I want a Canadian tuxedo?

I demand to know these answers, eh?

You'd be seriously lucky to even find a $60,000 igloo, especially in Alberta or British Columbia.

It hit CDN$ 1.09 today, I heard on the news that many automotive manufacturers are giving away incentives 5-7 thousand dollars, I think it's Ford and Honda for now, and then many will have to follow. Too many ppl are shopping in Buffalo, that Canada Customs are searching every car at the border coming back in.

That's forsure, with global warming the demand has increased tenfold! Ive seen go for as high as 105,000 for a basic and that's without the smoke hut!

OK guys, gather around. Here's the latest rumor......

The Canadian dollar is worth SO MUCH now that soon Canadians will follow Cerberus's example. Canada is poised to buy the entire United States, pick out whatever Canadians find useful, and toss the remainder to the dogs.

I heard it on the internet.

It MUST be true!!!!!!

Just a thought, but if the US dollar keeps depreciating, could it potentially keep jobs in IN America that would normally be in danger of being outsourced?

That reminds me of this, though Alberta would probably end up as part of Jesusland.
