Police Called as American Tourist “Shocked ” to Discover Canada has its “Own Currency”

一名米國游客很驚訝的發現原來加拿大有自己的貨幣

1FMnews:

A 46-year-old woman from Indiana has revealed her “shock” at discovering that Canadian’s have their own currency during a recent trip to Vancouver, British Columbia.

一位46歲從米國印第安納州來前去加拿大卑詩省溫哥華市的游客驚訝地發現加拿大有自己的貨幣

 

The woman was shopping in a W. Broadway store where she paid for numerous gifts using US currency. Upon receiving her change in Canadian dollars, shop assistants claim the woman became “deeply confused” and began screaming at them for “real money”. The store were forced to call local police as the woman refused to accept the “monopoly money”. Two VPD officers who arrived at the scene, were luckily successful in calming the woman down and explaining the misunderstanding.

這爲女性在百老匯街上購物的時候使用美金付款。當店員給予加幣找零的時候(注1)她一臉震驚樣并呐喊要求”真錢”。由於這位女性拒絕”大富翁錢幣”,店家被逼無奈衹好致電當地警察尋求幫助。兩位溫哥華警察(注2)抵達后成功安息這位女性的情緒并解開誤會。

 

After medical attention was provided, she revealed to Vancouver Police that she didn’t realize Canada had it’s own currency or was even it’s own country. “I honestly just thought it was a state, like Alaska,” she told local reporters. “Though, I was starting to wonder what was wrong with all the flags.”

經過醫療處理,她對溫哥華警方聲明她不知道加拿大有自己的貨幣。她對記者說:”我真心衹認爲加拿大是一個州,更阿拉斯加一樣。看到那些旗子的時候我就有點懷疑了。”

 

The woman’s “revelation” also led to a similar stir on her social media accounts. Having updated her Facebook friends vigilantly on her movements, throughout her 2 week stay, she immediately relayed to them the new information: “Oh WOW, you guys won’t believe this,” she wrote. “Did you know that Canada has its own currency??? It’s even called the dollar, too!! #LearnSomethingNew”. Two minutes later she added: “P.S. It’s still raining.”

這位女性也在社交軟體上更新了她的”發現”:

“你們一定不會相信的!加拿大有自己的貨幣!而且更美金一樣叫圓(注3)!#每天都學到新東西”

兩分鐘之後她又加了一條:”PS現在還在下雨(注4)”

 

The seemingly harmless if not slightly misguided post, was soon the scene of controversy as a man with a confederate flag over his profile picture, replied: “First it was Mexico stealing our dollar symbol, and now Canada’s stealing our dollar too? Who’s next, Australia? We have to make a change. #Trump2016”

經過一小段時間一位男性回應說:”先是墨西哥(注5)偷我們的”園”再來是加拿大。下一個是誰?澳大利亞?(注6)我們需要改變#Trump2016″

 

The most liked comment on the woman’s status came from her sister, who wrote: “OMG!! That’s soooo cute. It’s like they’re their own country!”

最熱門的留言來自她的姐妹:”我的天啊!這超可愛der~~~像他們自己是一個國家一樣~~”

 

A few days later, the woman posted another status update, this time featuring several selfies of herself with various Canadian bills and coins: “They have old dollar coins that they call loonies. I think they’re the loonies! Haha! Still raining….”

幾天后這位女性又更新了一個圖貼,圖爲她與各種加拿大紙幣以及硬幣:”加拿大的舊一園叫loonies欸 (~ ̄▽ ̄)→))* ̄▽ ̄*)o~我覺得他們就更loonies一樣哈哈(注7)~~~還在下雨”

 

Before the self-described “crazy, eye-opening experience”, it had all begun so innocently for the 46-year-old. Shortly after touching down in Vancouver, she took to Facebook to tell her 161 friends she had arrived safely: “Just landed in Vancouver airport. Lots of weird words and symbols on the signs here. It seems like a lovely place, aside from the rain but I’m sure it will stop soon!”

當這位女性抵達溫哥華的時候她告訴她161位臉書朋友她安全抵達的訊息:”我剛剛到溫哥華機場。有很多奇怪的文字和標志(注8)。看上去很美的地方!除了這些雨!但我確信這些雨馬上就會停的”

 

 

注1: 由於美金與加幣相差不大,部分店家以1美金換1加幣的換算率收取美金。【現在大概1塊加幣大概衹能換80分美金】

注2: VPD是Vancouver Police Department的縮寫。通常案件都是由VPD處理。重大案件都由加拿大皇家騎警RCMP(Royal Canadian Mounted Police)負責

注3: 園的由來是1520年由現車臣的一個王國發明.那時候的讀音是tollar後來才轉變成dollar。

注4: 溫哥華一個問題就是天天都在下雨==。。。所以又叫raincouver雨哥華

注5: 墨西哥實際貨幣是meso并不是園

注6: 美國1792年開始采用。加拿大1858年開始采用。澳大利亞雖然最晚但也在50年前-1966年采用了園作爲其貨幣系統。另外,這些園系統都不是美金園系統。

注7: Loonie是法文的huard.是一個鳥的名字。在加拿大一圓錢的背後印有這個鳥的圖案所以也有不少人稱1圓錢爲loonie

注8:加拿大是雙語國家所以官方機構都會有法文以及英文的標識牌。溫哥華機場還多了一個簡體中文。爲什麽呢。。。可能是因爲太多華人了吧–。。。。
