Shelby continues feeling the impact of US-Canada border closure

SHELBY — Governor Greg Gianforte visited Shelby on Wednesday to discuss the impact the U.S.’s continued closure of the Canadian border is having on Montana.

The governor spent time at Mark’s Tire in Shelby talking with owner Shannon McAllister.

McAllister was not shy about discussing the impact the closure of the U.S.-Canada border is having on his tire shop: “The Canadian border’s cost us, probably, around 20 percent. That’s what we’re estimating it at. It always seems like they picked up the slack when we needed it. If we were down here, they were up and they’d come down and buy.”
