Canada to scrap the penny!
About Freaking Time!!

Should get rid of the nickel and dime too!

But then they wouldn't be able to "nickel and dime" us anymore...

They'll find a way maybe "$5 and $10" us.

About time, yes.

However, my money is on them rounding UP to the closet $0.05.
And what about gas prices? I see this giving them an excuse to rasie them even more.

There should be more than enough pennies in circulation right now to last us till way past I'm dead. The ceasing of producing new pennies is fine with me.

I've actually got 12, 140 round pods filled to the brim with pennies in a closet right now. ....I'm good!

I HATE pennies.

They always seem to gather on my table and dresser. Whenever I try to grab something off the table, there is a little avalanche of pennies. They are just annoying. Especially when you get that one person (typically senior citizen, but I'll try not to stereotype) who decides to pay in pennies and slowly counts them while there is a massive lineup behind them.

Its about time :canada:

No more penny hockey! What I am I going to play at lunch now? We even had a league made.
