In the currency conversions in the second paragraph of this “news roundup” article by David Spurgeon, we seriously overestimated, by a factor of four, the value of the Canadian dollar (7 June, p 1232). How we achieved this startling conversion rate has a bizarre explanation, but the correct conversions (for the new $C100 fines facing people who are found to be in possession of less than 15 g of marijuana) are £45, $US75, and €64.
