Headsup: CP24 did a story on the US/Can dollar situation.

One key point was it takes about 2 years for retail prices reflect the parity in the currency.

PS. Anyone looking for an 07 Lexus, its 18,000$ less in the US with the exchange rate

And rememebr you dont pay duty for any items made in the US and Mexico.

BUT ITS BS CAUSE EVERYTHING STILL COSTS THE SAME. SHOES THAT ARE 110$ AMERICAN GO FOR 200$ HERE, ITS ABSOLUTE GARBAGE, AND DONT GIVE ME THIS OHH ITS COSTS MORE TO HAVE THEM SHIPPED TO CANADA, WHEN THEY ALL COME FROM CHINA AND TAIWAN WHICH IS EXACTLY THE SAME DISTANCE AWAY FROM THE US AS IT CANADA.

WE ARE GETTING RIPPED OFF, ALL THE PRICES OF EVERYTHING SHOULD GO DOWN BUT IT DOESNT. GAS IN AMERICA COSTS WAY MORE THEN HERE TOO, YOU GUYS COMPLAIN ABOUT PAYING 60 CENTS A LITRE, TRY PAYING 1.25 A LITRE. ITS ******ED, SOMEONE SHOULD GO ON NEWS CANADA WITH THIS, MAYBE PEOPLE WILL GET PISSED OFF ENOUGH TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

Paypal kinda screwed me with this though...I bought something with paypal end of august for $85 US which = $95 Canadian with their calculations.

Something happened and dude had to refund me the same $85 US today. You know @#%$ Paypal gave me back? $84 **** Canadian dollars!!!!

How is the CDN dollar more than the US dollar all of a sudden? Now if i sent that 85US as a payment, i doubt it would equal $84...frigging scammers.

Eitherway, the strong dollar si a good thing for cross border shopping, not sure if it's good for much else though.
looking for (sz 12-13):
safari dunk high

paypal takes weeks to adjust don't go nuts all at once, those rates apply to international trading markets first by the time they trickle down all the way to retail it will take at least 2 yrs like someone said. I know nike retail is adjusting their prices in Canada sometime next year but by how much or if significantly at all we will have to wait and see.
And now back to business

think about going to individual currency exchanges instead of the bank if anybody wants to buy some american..... on a couple bills its a few dollars difference but on 2-3 g's its worth it.... even then its not huge but anyway theres one right across the street from eaton centre next to 21 dundas sq.

It's on par as a world exchange rate, but in banks, PayPal, etc. it'll still be off a couple of cents.

Man, the Loonie on par with the greenback. Never thought I'd see the day.

Peace

You guys have no idea what you're talking about. The shopping aspect of a strong Canadian Dollar is appreciated; however, this will prove to be a terrible thing for the Canadian economy. A strong Canadian Dollar means Canadian exports go down, as well as a sharp decrease in tourism in Canada. This could devastate the Canadian economy...
