    • I supposed it was good that he'd paid because I only had a loonie and a dime in my pocket.
    • A loonie is a Canadian one dollar coin, on which is pictured a common loon.
    • The central bank wants to help keep a lid on the loonie, which jumped by a dramatic 20 per cent last year, driven in part by the sizeable gap between interest rates here and in the United States coupled with weakness in the U.S. economy.
    • The value of the loonie discouraged 17 per cent of Canadians from travelling outside the country while one per cent did not know or refused to answer.
    • Without a doubt, the loonie's sharp appreciation has somewhat eroded the competitiveness of Canada's export sector.
