it won't be long before the Canadian dollar has more value.

Over the next quarter there will be other rate cuts by the Fed.

Yeah, bad for business, but great for consumers. I can't wait to go shopping in the U.S. this fall

By the way, for those Canadians buying American goods and importing them back to Canada, what's your customs allowance before you have to pay duty?

Depends on how long you stay in the US.

No allowance under 24 hrs. Under 48 hrs it's $50. Then a week is a lot, something like $750 I believe. It goes up on a gradient scale.

But realistically you can bring anything you want over the border. Nobody cares. They must know we're all full of shit, but I've never, ever had even the suggestion of an inspection, much less an actual one.

48 hrs - 7 days is $400, then 7 days + is $750

and yeah, they don't really care.

American customs aren't the ones to inspect entrance to Canada, it's the Canadian ones and they don't care.

National jobless rate is at a 30-year low as well!

If oil and metal prices keep rising, Bush might decide to annex Canada.

Yeah, we are really experiencing a boom, but I wonder how long it will last since Canada's economy is so intertwined with the States'. The US, depending on who you talk to, is either about to experience a bad couple of years economically, or is about to head into "the R word", in a worse case scenario.

I don't think there's a consensus on what's next for the Canadian dollar. Its value is strongly related to the price of natural resources, and if the current bubble continues, it could get even stronger.

It's a good thing for the canucks...considering they can buy stuff w/o sales tax in some states whereas Canada has GST.

That can add up.
