In the past year, a significant proportion of Metro Vancouver residents (74%) drove across the border an average of five times shopping for gas, groceries, household goods and vacations tallying to over $2.6B per year.  This lost revenue has been damaging to local retailers and a boom to businesses across the border in Washington State, and a source of controversy and discussion among the consumers, politicians and consumers and businesses in the region.
