The "cashless society" is a concern

That's not what's going on with the Canadian penny in particular. It's more an effect of insidious inflation of the money supply, driving prices higher & higher until there isn't much left on the market that one can purchase for a penny.

Put another way: the penny isn't being replaced by an "electronic penny." The move toward a cashless society won't be incremental like that.
