Default Getting more for your dollar?

Ok I am confused, I am going on a cruise to Canada Sept. 29th, I see that one usa dollar is worth about 1.50 Canada dollar.....so they say I get more for my money. But maybe something in usa costs a dollar and in Canada it costs 1.50....how do I make out better, can someone splain to me?


Thanks
Mary Margaret

When I go to Windsor a lap dance costs $10, Canadian or American. I give Canadian.

We lived in Anchorage, AK in the early '90s. Canadian coins were treated as equal in value as US coins.

I remember working a summer job at the Detroit Zoo in the early 70's. We charged the same price for parking in Canadian and American dollars and used to make a nice "side income" converting currency collected at the gate. Times have changed, but not to the advantage of our neighbors to the North.

Don't forget you have to convert your American $$ into metric and celsius as well! <VBG>
