Canadian Tire Money

My father collected CT Money for years, and in his desk was a stack about six inches high. When I was young, I would secretly hold the stack in its elastic band and feel like I had millions. I don’t know who designed it, but to me it is real money because it was designed so well… it looked like the real thing, paper quality, colour and graphics. This is a gem of nostalgia and is purely Canadian. I don’t think CT still has it, but I also remember loose change coming down a spiral ramp instead of the cashier giving it to you… the whole thing was an exceptional experience!
