<<Canadians (whose currency is also down relative to the euro)>>

Not so. Here are the exchange rates over the past 3 yrs:

11 Aug 04 1€ = C$1.62
11 Aug 05 1€ = C$1.50
11 Aug 06 1€ = C$1.43
11 Aug 07 1€ = C$1.44

laverendrye - Thank you for correcting me on the name of that movie.LOL. I always get it wrong. Of course it is "Bon Cop, Bad Cop."

Now as to the value of the Euro to the Canadian dollar. You will note that I specifically said May 2006. I also hope that you will agree that monthly averages are far more indicative of the relationship, than specific days.
All these are monthly averages:
May 2006 - 1.41688 CAD
July 2007 - 1.44153 CAD
August 2007 - 1.44722 CAD (8 days average)
It was almost 1.53 in January of 2007.
Lowest lately - January 2005 1.3778 and February 2006 1.37149 CAD

So you can see that the Canadian Dollar to the Euro has not had a dramatic rise in the past 18 months (the time frame I gave in my original post), contrary to the Canadian dollar to the American dollar.

Sorry, cigalechanta, took a break to watch Walk the Line tonight from Netflix.

I liked Two Days in Paris -- what I could understand of it. Even the scenes with the parents (whom at the time I did not know where here real parents were a hoot) were funny even without understanding the dialogue. I kept thinking those two actors were so "real" -- by golly they are.
