    Well, not really. Starting today, Canadians will have to round to the nearest 5 cents. For instance, if you have a sale for 9.99, you have to round to $10.

    So say goodbye to the classic 99 cent deception, Canadians.

      There's been talk about rationalizing currency for decades among western nations but Canada is making the best effort. Coins cost a lot to make and the smaller coins cost the most.

      The cashless society is still the goal in Europe and North America, but it will take a little longer.

            That's a little mean. Can't they just squish on the train tracks instead? At least that's useful.

              LOL They are also good at drawing corrosion away from your cars battery terminals. They are also a good bullying tool. They hurt when they are thrown at someone, but not enough to cause any damage. So many uses.......

                Pennies make great floor tiles but its labor intensive.

                  Canada will no longer produce new pennies, the old ones are still in circulation and can still be used

                    The ones here in Thunder Bay, Ontario are phased out already. Let's be honest, no one will be rounding prices down. Government assholes.
