But this low valuation largely being unsubstantiated and compared with a USD that was vastly overrated, was a house of cards speculative currency, that was primed for a huge bust.
There was a strange overvaluation of the USD that was more speculative than anything I've ever seen. That bubble burst bigtime. I can't see the Canabuck going back to 6ocents and I can't see it legitimately ever being there in the first place.

Maybe with another Canadian govt complicit in the devaluation of its own dollar.
