I have an old $5 in my wallet, will be fun to do. The enjoyment I get out of doing this is easily worth $5.
The bank listed "important reasons". I call BS on each one.
- Reduced lifespan, so what? It is being replaced anyway.
- It might be rejected in a transaction. Lame, someone else will take it. Its only $5
- Source of national pride. Really? My guess is half of Canadians have never heard of him or know he was the PM.
Checked my wallet, there is an old $5, jackpot! I am feeling more Canadian pride in doing this on a Canadian bill then
