It appears the strong Canadian dollar continues to draw Manitoba shoppers into the U.S.

Larry Conn is Director for Canada Border Services Agency in Manitoba.

He says the amount of goods purchased in the U.S. and brought back to Manitoba has doubled in 3 years.

The most popular big ticket item being purchased across the border is vehicles.

Conn says they've seen a huge increase in purchases of cars, trucks, trailers, motor homes, and motor cycles.
