I don't mind the look, but if they can implement something so they're not so slippery and more foldable.

I really miss the old cotton / paper notes. Not to mention paper one and two dollar bills. The polymer notes are too slippery for money clips and unfortunately I can’t even stuff them with a few ones or twos for added bulk.

This polymer crap is not money. This is more government/central bank crap foisted upon the unsuspecting people. These only represent credit notes issued by the government. This is not money.
You want real money/currency, you get silver and gold coins, period. That is real money in your hand.

yeah gold and silver are only the true money.. but good luck trying to buy milk and eggs with a gold nugget!

these note are good and bad, at the strip club they are good, clean up well, but are bad cause when they are wet they stick together and I end up giving away to much money, they look nice laying on the dance floor the way the light reflects off them, but are bad because they are hard to fold in a paper airplane to throw at the stripper.

I think a longer bank note, like 2.5 times longer life span for these new $5 & $10 bank notes, is great news. I also like the new look and security features.
I didn't come upon one of these new notes myself, so I wonder about it's foldability! Is it a rigid bank note?

Earth to Mireille !!!!! The polymer $5 & $10. bills are the same as the newer $20, $50 and $100. bills... thus the "foldability" is the same. If you haven't come across any of the higher currency bills in the past 2 years, you must be living in the twilight zone.

I handle money all day long (sadly not my own), and these polymer bills are really not an issue. They are a little stickier than paper, but therein lies the answer. Paper bills are more sticky when brand new. They become easier with age and so do the Polymer bills. The problem with paper is that when they are easy to handle, they are to be replaced, costing us more.
My issue with Polymer bills is not with the bills themselves. Why is it that the Government finds great savings like these, but I see an INCREASE in taxes? Can we not have tax relief for a little while. Politicians have become tax crazy in their pursuit to pad their own earnings. I'm sorry but your 94,000 per year salary for what is a part-time job, is ridiculous.
Instead of cutting teachers, and emergency services and freezing my wages for 6 years, maybe you could cut a few unnecessary political jobs.

I like these new notes, the're new and exciting. I want more of them, more of them, more of them in my pockets. I just want to be like Richie Rich.

Is there a petition somewhere where we average Canadians can get our old, non-melting, durable, easy to handle money back? Also, is there a petition yet to have the committee who decided the new bills were a good thing dismissed?
I wanted to be able to save some of my cash in a safe, but if my house catches fire, I will have saved a puddle of plastic. I am completely un-impressed by the new bills. They are annoying to handle and given the number of times twenty's get washed in a back pocket of jeans and then dryed in the dryer, they are less useful and durable than the old. The new bills are a failure.
