Made-in-Canada products are flying off the shelves, with local manufacturers and souvenir shops among the first to benefit. At the top of the scale -- the much sought-after knick-knacks in the official Olympic Games shop, which are so desirable that some souvenir-hunters are queueing from six o'clock in the morning to get their hands on them.
