Will the Canadian Dollar Hover at Par – Matthew Strauss, RBC Capital Markets

As an exporting nation, Canada has a history of relying on a low currency.  Unless you have been hiding under a rock for the past four years, the Canadian dollar no longer enjoys this low value luxury.  Many producers who export are very concerned about the value of  the Canadian dollar and some of the analysts predictions of a longer term par US / Canadian dollar.
