Making cents made no sense, but getting rid of the penny is only the beginning, says NDP MP Pat Martin.
As the Royal CanadianMint stops distributing pennies Monday, Martin's eye is turning to the nickel and, eventually, the quarter.
The MP for Winnipeg Centre plans to launch a private member's motion by the end of the week to eliminate the five-cent coin and re-jig the rest of Canada's currency. His "master plan" is to have a coin currency in multiples of 10 - 10, 20 and 50-cent coins, and $1, $2 and $5 coins.
