Insights have a push button KMs to miles dashboard display, so that removes a large part of the expense of importing one from Canada. You need a registered importer to do all the paperwork for you, that's about $450. Your dollar currently has a built in 20% advantage as well. Importing a cheap (say under $2000) car isn't worth your money, but on something rare like a 1st gen Insight, the expense of importing it is pretty much countered by the savings you get from the exchange rate.
