Don't forget - our dollar is worth more compared to the US dollar not because the canadian dollar is strengthening in the international market so much as because the US dollar is weakening. At least that's how I understand it. Therefore the exchange between CDN dollars and japanese yen (or HKD, or whatever) hasn't actually changed.

So it's a great time to buy american products for us canucks, but in terms of buying ftrom the rest of the world things really haven't changed nearly as dramatically as they have compared to USD.

Not that I know, I'm just specualting based on my understanding of why the CDN-US exxchange rate is improving for us.
