Border crossings from the Lower Mainland into the United States hit a 15year high last year, according to a recent report out of Washington State.

The Western Washington University compiled the report, showing that Canadians from the region went across the line 13.8 million times in 2012.

And while the numbers don't say why Canadians are heading down south, for Surrey Board of Trade CEO Anita Huberman, there's no question what people are looking for stateside.
