This is because of all the people heading down to Grand Forks to take advantage of cheaper airfare. If it weren't for this, Winnipeg would have much higher passenger counts. And the "shrinkage" is of very minimal amounts anyways; it's more stable than anything else.
Same thing in happening with regards to Vancouver and Abbotsford's airports. This is the disadvantage of living close to the border. But like everything else, this trend won't last forever.
