A report in the Desert Sun says our neighbors to the north pump a lot of money into the Coachella Valley.

The 300,000 Canadians who visited the Valley last year spent more than $300 million, according to a study commissioned by the Greater Palm Springs Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Visitors overall had a $7 billion impact on the local economy.
