Looks like we have a bone to pick with the tooth fairy.
The mythical creature has been giving disproportionate amounts of money to Canadians living in different parts of the country. A new survey by Visa Canada found that she’s paying a premium for teeth in the Maritimes. In fact, at $3.46 per tooth, those living along the East coast are raking in 19 per cent more than the national average.
The little succubus is robbing us blind!
But if that’s not making you grind those pearly whites, you might want to know that the tooth fairy sometimes doesn’t even bother with Quebec. Thirteen per cent of respondents there said they received no money at all. For the ones who did, they scraped up a measly $2.06 from under their pillows.
Ontarians, meanwhile, fared quite well, running just behind the Maritimes at $3.21 per tooth. Prairies residents generally wake up to find $2.43 for each tooth they leave behind, while those in B.C. are paid $2.47 apiece.
So even if a child were to save up all that money, the kid would only be left with about $70. Now tell me, how much was your last dental bill?
Someone should really bite back.
