Lifetime's Saturday night meh-vie of the week A Sister's Nightmarewas filmed in Kelowna, British Columbia. All the crew did was add American flags and PRESTO! - Kelowna became part of Oregon. This bridge was seen several times.

I'm assuming they must of replaced the mailboxes as well, license plates etc. They used to have to change more of the signs on banks, but now TD and BMO are common in U.S. cites, so I guess that it's a little less work for the crews.

I don't know why you've singled this movie out, calling it a farce. Lots of American movies are shot in Montreal, and made to look like American or foreign locales. I myself was an extra in a movie shot in Old Montreal made to look like a consulate in Moscow.

While Emmerich’s movie shines the spotlight on Montreal’s world-class studio facilities, the city also has much to offer in terms of exterior filming locations. Producers are frequently drawn to the historic architecture, which dates back to the mid-17th Century. This sense of history means Montreal can easily double for many different parts of the world, including iconic parts of Europe.

heres 218 more movies shot in Canada
Movies that were filmed in Canada list
The reason so many American films are shot in Canada is not for the scenery it has to do with cost of production..Canada is a much cheaper place to shoot a movie

What are "TD" and "BMO"?

I didn't see the interior of a bank in the movie I mentioned.

The mailboxes and license plates tend to stay in the background or out of focus. For all I know, they may be edited out of the picture.

Apparently, Kelowna is quite a popular filming location:

Because its movies are a string of "women in peril" cliches.
