    LOL! Clever use of the faces from different currencies.

    I was always skeptical of the euro. I think it’s just as well the Brits didn’t let Blair railroad them into giving up the pound.

    The Canadians use dollars, not pounds. DJB

    And we don’t have a dollar bill, either. The queen is on the twenty and most of our change though…

    We have a gold coloured one-dollar coin, 11-sided – like the one created in the USA with the likeness of Susan B. Anthony (nice touch, Pab). It has a loon on the one side – hence the name “loonie” – and the Queen’s profile on the other. In the late 90’s we acquired a $2 coin. It is a two-ringed affair – silver coloured on the outer ring and a faded gold colour for the “bulls-eye”. Polar bear on the one side, Queen on the other. In the first year they were produced they were noted for breaking apart if dropped. Naturally, they came to be called “toonies” (twonies).

    If we ever get a 5 dollar coin I’ll update you – but no rumours lately about that!

    The red guy – Sir William Lyon MacKenzie King, $50 dollar bill. A Prime MInister of Canada

    Purple – Sir John A. MacDonald, first Prime Minister of Canada (he and George could share some stories I am sure!) $10 bill

    Blue – Sir Wilfred Laurier, another PM. $5 bill

    Yes I ran on. No worries – there won’t be a test tomorrow! :-)

    “Dubloonies” was a better name. Silly citizenry.

    Batten down the hatches, the Loonies are coming !
    Nous sommes attaqués par les habitans du grand Nord blanc!
    ( Canada is bilingual, after all. )

    The gold lady is the Sacajawea dollar. They’re in circulation but haven’t really caught on. The “Suzy” (Susan B. Anthony silver dollar) looked too much like a quarter!

    I have to get out more. I live in northern Washington and spend some leisure time in Canada but I’ve never seen or heard all those insults. I thought "canuck"was just an alternate word for Canadian, as “Yankee” is used for American. The comments on this strip, and the strip itself,certainly educational.

    We (Sweden), Denmark and the UK have refused the Euro, thank God.

    I wish Ireland had also done so. They made the biggest mistake going from the punt ( pound ) to the euro. They wouldn’t be in the mess they are today if the had, like you all, kept their own currency.

    @ghostkeeper

    A recent poll of Canadians asked the question “Are there too many immigrants in Canada?”
    21% said yes,
    11% said no,
    68% responded : “Please, I am not to be understanding the question.”

    Yet, even the House of Commons, could not match the Yanks fullest potential….

    @TheWildSow

    My theory is that the US $1 coin won’t be accepted until we also make a $2 coin. NOBODY wants to receive four $1 coins as change. A $2 coin would reduce the coins-as-change weight.
