The American Dollar Is Finally Going Down So You Can Party In The USA

So there's a lot happening with our American, neighbours to the south, and not all of it has been good (understatement of the century? Yeah we think so). I can't speak for everyone else out there but I'm happier than ever to call myself a Canadian. 

Luckily for us, things are going to start getting even better for the True North. With the political instability happening under the Trump government we're starting to see that negatively affect their American dollar. 

While it's only a small decrease, the US dollar going down means that Canadians are getting more for their money than they were once before. The difference at the moment is only by about .33 cents but it's a good sign that our dollar is starting to get closer and closer to being equal to the American one. 

What could this mean for us? Well travel to the US is going to get cheaper. Canadian gas prices will start to go down. Buying American goods will be less expensive for us - which all equal more money in our pocket. Now, who's mad about that?

In case you need some vacation inspo, here are some bucket list destinations you need to check out now that we can finally afford to:

People In Durham Are Now Required To Track Any & All Visitors Or Risk Facing A Hefty Fine

If you don't keep a list of your guests' info, you could potentially get in trouble.

If you're planning on having some friends over and you're living in the Durham Region (which is anywhere from Pickering to Whitby) there are some new rules that you now need to follow.

As of September 11 at 12:01 a.m., anyone who hosts a social gathering in the area — from homeowners, tenants, owners, and business operators — must conduct contract tracing of everyone who comes over. This means having a complete list of names and contact information of everyone who comes over (no matter how old they are) and holding onto that information for at least a month.
