Well if the prices are in Canadian first place is only like 5 bucks. LOL or $3000.

Wally,

Don't know. He did say that he expects a good number of teams from Vancouver and some from Calgary and Edmonton. He is hoping maybe our neighboring state, Washington, will send up some players.

Yep,

Prices in Canadian dollars. As a Canadian whose retirement income is from US investments, I'm depressed by the relative strength of the Canadian dollar. Since we moved to Victoria, the US dollar has lost over 20% of its value vs the CanBuck and cut my retirement income accordingly.

I pray for a low Canadian dollar and look forward to the time when, once again, the US dollar is strong. It ain't nothin' to brag about right now.
