Alternate Price Of Book In Canadian Dollars Gives Man Little Window Into What Life Would Be Like If He Were Canadian

DETROIT—Offering the U.S. citizen a brief opportunity to vicariously experience a different nationality, the Canadian price printed on the back cover of a book gave local man Peter Brown a little window into what life might be like if he were Canadian, sources confirmed Wednesday. “Wait a second, so in a world where I’m Canadian, I’d be paying $22.99 for this paperback instead of $16.99?” said Brown, wondering aloud if the Canadian version of himself would be upset upon seeing that the number for him was higher than it was for Americans. “That’s amazing. It’s pretty interesting that they call them ‘dollars’ over there, too, even though their money looks totally different. Just imagine, if I’d been born in Canada, my wallet would have queens and prime ministers in it instead of a bunch of presidents. It really makes you stop and think.” The Detroit resident later confirmed his intention to apply for a passport so he could one day cross the border and discover all the new and fascinating cultural experiences awaiting him in Windsor, Ontario.

NateTWN Lol You have to ask yourself, is Canadian dollar even real money. That guy is seriously thinking he could be the Tony Stark of Canada. Sometimes I wish that I was Canadian.😔 Actually books are provided free of charge in Canada to Canadians since the introduction of Libracare in 1978.

As a Canadian I can tell you the pain is real. you can tell it's satire since it says '...fascinating cultural experiences awaiting him in Windsor, Ontario.' And the reverse for Canadians, it gives us a window into what life would be like as an American. 'More expensive.' Firecrackerboom Canadian pages hold more text

A tax on books is a tax on the mental freedoms of all mena He can also buy the version of the book translated to Canadian. 'It was the best of times, eh, it was the worst of times, hoser.'
