Post Canada vs USA money
So I heard the Canadian dollar is worth more than ours now. Since I'm pretty much an idiot when it comes to economics, how is this a bad or good thing? Should I start investing in Peso's?

It's definitely a bad thing (except for exporters as thosquanta mentioned). The USD will likely continue to depreciate.

I wonder when this starts to hurt Canadian tourism.

Might be time for me to turn in the jar of Canadian coins I've been saving. Maybe I'll soda machines will start taking them, now.

no, but you might wanna brush up on the correct useage of the apostrophe
You don't need one to designate Peso as a plural

The Amero is bogus. It was a privately minted coin, with no recognized monetary value. Someone hoodwinked a conservative talk radio host (sorry, can't recall who, but I'm sure Google can help), and the story got legs from there.
