"Under the Currency Act, nobody is obliged to accept more than 25 pennies as payment for any product or service."

Property Tax is not a "product or service". Payment proffered and refused, debt negated.

Canada rules may be different than USA rules.

But the guy should have kept the pennies for the metal content. Even zinc is worth more than paper. 2,000 paper ones is still a nice protest. I'm sure that if they are "worn" enough, they would even jam the currency counter machines.

The Currency Act is a Canadian act. That quote was from the last line of the article.
