If you want to find out how much our dollar is or isn't worth you can go here. http://www.xe.com/ucc/ I just checked out the US dollar against the UK pound, one US dollar is worth .504504 on the pound. Our dollar against the Canadian is 1.06. I honestly can't remember a time when our dollar wasn't worth 1.50 on the Canadian market. Four years ago I had to deal with some money from our dollars to the UK and I got over 1.60 per US dollar. I think that when our dollar falls below a even trade with Canada we are looking at hitting a slippery slope. Take care Be safe Poacher.
