Today at 7:58 a.m. PDT, the Canadian dollar and US dollar were an even trade for the first time since November 25, 1976.

I've believed for several years that that the Canadian dollar would be at par before Dubya left office. So, this event took place over a year ahead of schedule. Thanks again, George. You are leaving an economic legacy that will be remembered for many years to come.
