as the Canadian dollar keeps slipping against the US dollar (now $.83) Canadians will start dropping out of travel to the islands as well as other US destinations, the perfect storm that has/is been brewing continues to gain strength from all sources, 17% on every cdn dollar spent combined with higher airfares unfortunately will take some wishing to travel out of the picture.

In addition, this article must have been written months ago, when the Canadian dollar was close or at par with the US buck, just in the last 8 weeks, it has lost almost $.17 cents to the US dollar.

In the meantime the Yen is the strongest currency in the world and oil prices are under $70.
Yet a ticket to Tokyo is $1000. Crazy.
Since Canadians are the lowest spenders and Japanese are the biggest..........
What about a low cost carrier to Japan???????!
