Canadian Dollar and Travel
With the increase of the Canadian dollars, its seems that shoppers will be flocking across the border for cheap goods. Normally it seems that Americans cross our border to take advantage of their strong dollar and to take in all the (sin) city has to offer, well now its our turn. Americans come over to take advantage of our lower drinking and gambling age, and not to mention the many forms of adult entertainment that Windsor seems to call home. At the same time, we Canadians cross the border to shop and maybe use the Detroit airport. We don't tend to eat, stay the night, or attend any cultural events, pretty much just shop. We enjoy the variety of shopping opportunities for our bargain hunters, while reinforcing the friendly, polite Canadian stereotype. I find it interesting, the difference between what those of us in our respective countries cross the border for. Canadians for good deals and Americans for good sins. However, soon the Canadian will fall like it inevitably does, so let's enjoy it while it lasts.
