i'm not 100%, but i dont think so because of their insane taxes (Windsor, Ontario which is close by has like a 15% tax or something between PST and GST and all that). plus the only place to shop is Canadien Tire
i think we just go over there for their all nude strip clubs
i think alot of Canadiens actully come over here because of the cheaper taxes, also i think they just like our stores better (not alot of Costco/Wallmart/everything under one roof type stores). they're always by our malls and i yell at them for driving slow
