It won’t turn around soon, we’re likely to see a 59 cent loonie this year.

mauibride2016:  Hey again, (fellow Vancouver bee, yay!) do you guys think it’s an option to open a US savings account for now? It seems really strange to stock up on US currency at $.70, but if it’s supposed to fall another $.10, it might be worth it? Do you have a financial planner you can meet with/ask about it? I’d really hate to see it reach $.60 – this sucks, I’m sorry.

turnanewleaf: To be fair,  I already posted in a different thread that we all need to remember that none of us needs to eat out of season produce. I did not grow up eating asparagus, strawberries, grapes etc in the winter. We waited all year for those things to be available when they were available locally. They tasted so much better when “ripened on the vine”, so to speak.

julies1949:  I’m in Northern SK and we pay $6.50 for 4 litres of milk, $12 for a 900g block of cheese…and don’t get me started on bacon! A 1lb container of strawberries were $8 the other day! I’m just glad it’s not the Nunavut prices but still…
