If Canada is supposed to have a Toonie Tuesday why is it that you have to pay two dollars and forty nine cents?
the Toonie Tuesday KFC offer was started in the late 1990's. At the time it was two pieces of chicken and a small fry for $ 2.00. actually $2.30 after tax.
Due to inflation it is not possible for KFC to offer this deal anymore. As many people became used to cheep food on Tuesdays, they continued to use the name even when the amount became unclear.
You are not supposed to remove a center of a "Toonie" (Canadian Two Dollar Coin), or for that matter, deface any Canadian Coin (or Paper Money) at all. Exceptions are made for Colourised or Laser Colourisations of Canadian Coins. Removing the centre of a Canadian coin is illegal, as this is Canadian Federal Coinage, and is protected by law at Ottawa, Ontario, Canada by Parliament. Heavy-duty tools would be needed to remove the Toonie centres…
Unlike Americans, Canadians carry coins for our -2 dollars (Toonie) -1 dollar (Loonie) -25 cents (Quarter) These are all coins. In other words, I have no clue is you guys have -Dimes (10 cents) -Nickle (5 cents) Our bills, well only diff is, Our bills are the colors red, blue, green, and brown. And We don't have one dollar bills or two dollar bills. I hope I helped. :)
It refers to someone not really from "the town" and hence not "one of us." Charlestown MA used to have a very insular culture and people from there rarely left. That is no longer the case, but the expression reflects the belief that either you were a "townie" or just a pretender-- a "toonie." (It should be noted that this expression is not widely used.)
the Ottawa money? I take it you mean what is the currency in Canada. Ottawa is located in the province of Ontario, in the country of Canada. It is the Canadian Dollar. We have 100, 50, 20, 10 and 5 dollar bills and for coins we have 2.00(toonie) 1.00(loonie) .25 (quarter) .10(dime) .059(nickel) and .01(penny)
Ontario is part of Canada so the Canadian dollar is the currency of Ontario. Coins are produced by the Royal Canadian Mint in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and currently issued in denominations of 5¢ (nickel), 10¢ (dime), 25¢ (quarter), 50¢ (50¢ piece), $1 (loonie), and $2 (toonie). Pennies are no longer minted in Canada.
The image on the back of the Canadian Dollar coin is that of a Canadian Loon, a waterbird native to Canada. Hence, the coins are often refered to as "Loonies." As a point of interest, the Canadian Two Dollar coin is sometimes refered to as a "Toonie" (or, less commonly, "Two-nie") although it has no waterfowl imagery at all (Toonies have an image of a polar bear on the back). Both the Loonie and the…
In Canada the Canadian dollar is the base of currency. There are bills of $5, $10, $20, $50, and $100. There are no 1 cent pieces being made, anymore, but there is the 5-cent piece, the 10-cent piece, the 25-cent piece, the 50-cent piece, the one dollar coin called the 'Loonie', and the two dollar coin called the 'Toonie'. These bills and coins are used throughout Canada, including Manitoba.
