With US and Canadian money at par, Canadians heading south to shop

It's big news. Even The New York Times wrote about it in Saturday's paper. Canadians are flocking across the border to shop. With the US and Canadian dollars now at par, they're shopping, playing and even spending a night or two.

Major construction is going on at the Douglas Border Crossing in Surrey, BC / Blaine, Washington. Expect long lines both ways and travel off-peak times if possible.

But border back-ups are not stopping Canadian shoppers who like the new "buck for a buck" routine.
