This is really amazing when you consider vehicles made in Canada are cheaper in the USA and the Canadian dollar has been at par or higher for over a year!

didn't know that Canadians made cars.

We are praying for those of you on the East Coast.

1/2 hour to go until the USC-Notre Dame game. Any odds out there?

"May be the US should annex Canada."

You tried several times and failed every time. Perhaps Canada should annex the US instead. But that would be too much of a drag on our economy.

Remind me again, which car marques are Canadian?

I thought the plants there were building Fords, Chevys and probably Toyotas, none of which are Canadian. Unless they mean those cars produced for the Canadian market.

I suspect interest rates will start going up and will slow car sales down.

Would have been nice to see it broken down by manufacturer to see who's leading the way.

As the US big three have plants in Canada, they export a good portion of their production to the US. I would prefer vehicles to be made in the US, but Canada is the next best place.
