I like knowing that blue is $5, purple is $10, green is $20, red is $50 and brown is $100 (not that I see many of the $100's) - I sort my money by colour. Makes it much faster at a cash register.

I don't know if I can go back to dollar bills instead of coins. I like my loonies and twoonies!

It's just air travel at this point, but land crossing is coming soon (don't recall the actual date).

And does this move signify open borders? Not to me, it doesn't.
we still need passports to travel around Europe too if you go by road, you may or may not get stopped at a border - but flight travel always requires passports and Thank God !

Oh, yeah, I'm not saying it shouldn't be so (though it feels a little strange after all these years of going back and forth without). I was simply pointing out that this move does not, to me, signify the open borders that were being referred to a little earlier as practically a fait accompli.

I just applied for my passport in order to go golfing in Florida in September. I'm over 60 years old and have never in my life needed a passport before the US started all this stuff. I admit I never travelled overseas but I have been around the Caribbean and the US and never before needed a passport.

IMO, this certainly isn't opening up our countries and making us all one country. If anything we are now less so than ever. I'm not complaining, I'm happy to be Canadian and proud of our country.

Back to the currency issue, I for one sincerely hope we don't lose our currency. I also like our coloured money but more importantly I'm more concerned with the economy issue this would probably affect.
