For the first time since I was 8 years old, $1 Canadian now equals $1 US!!!
Back in 2002, one year into Bush’s presidency, a $7.00 Challah bread French Toast from Sunnyside Up in Corvallis, OR (for example) would have cost me, Johnny Canuck, $9.80! Add to that the fact Oregon has no sales tax (our provincial and federal taxes total 13%) and I see a nice slab of oh-my-god brownie sidling up to that much anticipated French Toast when we’re next down Corvallis way…
in a little over a month!!!
For this... yeah!
This time we're definitely going beyond the city limits and actually into Corvallis!
Did I just scare a bunch of American friends away from visiting us? Have I mentioned that Bush is not, in any way, our leader?
