Well you can go into any Target store in the USA, then come up to
Canada and go to a Target store, and the prices will shock you. Same
with book stores. Even when out dollar was up to $1.15, a book that
sold for $8.99 in US stores was $14.99 here.
Part of it is taxes, but definitely not all of it.
Part of it is the fact that to sell any product in Canada it MUST have
both english and french on the lable, and have all instructions and
warnings in both languages - so they can't just toss a box across the
border from Detroit to a store in Windsor, or from Buffalo to Niagara

What a shame. Other than safety warnings, I don't think products sold
in the US have to have any English on them at all. Maybe in some
states safety warnings of some sort may have to be in Spanish too.
A lot of instruction manuals etc. inside the box are now in English,
Spanish, and French, And the polycarbonate I bought that was made in
the US had instructions in English, Spanish, French, and German. (I
hope they don't know something about the Western Hemisphere that I don't
know.) The polycarbonate made by Saudi Arabia, had almost no text,
just graphics. The only text was a web page, which said nothing about
how to use polycarbonate.
