The dollar

I know I should be happy that the Canadian dollar is down. It's good for exports. I am not any sort of economics person, but I am aware that a low dollar is good for our natural resources; things like lumber and mining products. That said, I am not pleased since I am a person who likes to buy stuff online. And the United States has the best selection with online stores such as L.L.Bean. But with our dollar at 74-cents compared to the U.S. dollar, I am out of luck. L.L.Bean has been sending me all sorts of urgent e-mails, inviting me to enjoy up to 10 per cent off. Still not good enough. Oh poor me, eh!
