Why are books and magazines more in Canada?
Here in America I see two different prices on periodicals and books. The US price is much lower than the Canadian cost. Does anyone know why?
Are you compensating for US dollars against Canadian dollars?
There may be different rates of any purchase tax that may levied in Canada and the USA.
Historically it was because the Canadian dollar traded lower than the USD, but these days there is parity, so I think they are probably just taking advantage of the fact that people are used to seeing the price difference.
This is because the population is a lot less in Canada than in the United States. So there are less people to buy so the price goes up.
That's a good question. I think it's probably the exchange rates or perhaps Canada taxes things that come from the US.
TR Brown's idea makes the most sense to me. I also think that shipping costs and taxation could be an issue as well. I have picked up British mags in Barnes and Noble before, and promptly put them down when i realized what the price in US Dollars was!

Why Are So Many HGTV Shows Filmed In Canada, Eh? Just curious. I love HGTV. Anyone know many of their shows are filmed in Canada? The Toronto area seems to be a place they are often doing shows.
