Or at least that's what the guy on the news is saying. Yes for the first time since the 70's, the Canadian dollar is on par with the American dollar. I'm not an economist so I don't really understand all the ramifications of this. I'm sure it's not a good thing in many ways and if I really wanted to understand, I could call Ryan for a detailed explanation.
But getting down to the bottom line for me tonight - it means I can go shopping at Amazon!!!! All those recommendations they give me that I can't really afford taking the exchange rate into consideration no longer apply!
I shall be back later with a list of my purchases. I'm headed to check what they recommend for me. :)
