Good luck to Apple on the launch in Canada. The major banks already have equivalent systems in place to compete with ApplePay so there's no compelling reason to use it. With Canada's strong cross-country banking system and NFC in every existing credit card (tap to pay) there's no consumer demand for Apple - or anyone else.

What are you talking about? The tap to pay on my credit cards only ever lasts a couple months before the card cracks and I have to use the chip instead. And what does a strong cross-country banking system have to do with people using Apple Pay? The minute I can put my credit card into Apple Pay, I'm doing it. I mean I guess you could say there's no consumer demand. Much in the same way there's no demand for OS 8.2. Everyone will use it when it arrives, but nobody is knocking over old ladies to get at it. It will be ubiquitous within months of its launch. I guarantee it.
