andyofne: With a 10th the population, it's probably easier and cheaper to make these kind of changes.


You joking? We're so spread out that once you get 100 miles from the border there's ATMs that serve only one igloo.

SpdrJay: I wish the US would do this. I throw away pennies cuz they just piss me off.


You know if that happens every tax in the US will be rounded up. Killing the penny is is effectively tax increases and because of that the penny in the US won't die.

Except when it comes to time. Back when W Bush wanted to look like he was doing something about oil prices without actually doing anything, he had Daylight Saving Time moved. Canada meekly went right along with Bush's commandment. Kind of hard to be a leader when you let your neighbor dictate when you wake up and when you go to sleep.

Shame on Canada for forcing Nickelback on its people.

de_Selby: Boo, subby. hiss. Canada does not do corny. We're the nation of Leonard Cohen and Michael Ondaatje.


You're also the nation of Red Green. Corny is, in fact, done in Canada.

Portia: I read the headline as "Canada will stop making penises."


That's funny cause I didn't read the headline at all but merely scanned it to see if it was boob-related and therefore making the thread worthwhile to look at.
