What Were You Doing in 1976?

I wasn’t doing a hell of a lot yet, but it looks like retro is back in for sure:

Sept. 20 (Bloomberg) — Canada’s dollar rose, trading almost equal to the U.S. dollar for the first time in 31 years, as climbing commodity prices boosted the outlook for the world’s eighth-biggest economy.

The currency reached as high as 99.99 U.S. cents, and hasn’t equaled $1 since November 1976, when Pierre Trudeau was Canada’s prime minister. Gold rose to a 27-year high today as the U.S. dollar sank to a record low against the euro, spurring demand for alternative investments. Crude oil set a record high yesterday.

People used to talk about just merging Canada into part of the United States. I don’t think they’d be into it when they could just buy us out.
