An alternate name for the canadian dollar
that has recently become more popular in my circle of friends
. I use this term to denote my displeasure over the fact that Canada
has become a source of cheap labor
and natural resources
for the U.S.A.
In Canada a yearly salary of more than 60,000 northern pesos is considered doing well. The majority of people make less than that. It is not uncommon for young techies
to make minimum wage (In Quebec
that would be a whopping 6.95 NPesos an hour).
It is a good thing that housing here is so cheap because if rent in Canada was analogous to rent in any american city we'd all be homeless
If you're an American visiting Canada on vacation it is customary to refer to northern pesos as canadian fun tokens.
