missed the boat

Upon discussing the aforementioned federal budget with my daddio, apparently I missed the boat on the most exciting part of it all - whoops. We are now allowed to bring more dollar value of goods back from the U S of A!!! After visiting the US for more than 24 hours, the allowable limit goes from $50 to $200. For more than 48 hours, the limit goes from $400 to $800. According to the National Post, this measure is intended to ease congestion at border crossings and also sharply reduce the amount of lying that takes place there.

And of course, how could I forget to mention the elimination of the penny! How wild will that be!

  1. I'm personally really happy about the penny elimination. It was such a waste of money and so few people like pennies. Smart move on that one. As for the border limit increase, I think they did that just so that more people will claim and Canada will get a better idea of the true volume of import that's going on. $50 was a joke!
