If you are out of the loop that we call the WORLD ... the Canadian Dollar is now on par or worth even more than the USD.

Mesh 1 is 110% correct.

I mean if folks would "READ" the article, it is very clear

It's just one reflection of the growing pressure from consumers to bring down retail prices on this side of the border (Canada), in line with the rising value of the Canadian dollar.

1 USD = 0.965850 CAD

So with that being said, and the CDN dollar worth more than the USD ... this is not a Sony or Walmart thing ... it is a worth economics thing.

I think it is AWSOME being a Canadian. I remember buying stuff from the US a few years back where every $1 US would cost me $1.40 Canadian. It is about time we are back on par. Last time was back in 1973.

A guitar I prices about 4 months ago was going to run me $1400 CDN .. but as of yesterday the local music store got their act together and it will be coming home with me now for the same price I can get it on US sites ...... $900 CDN ..... VERY NICE !! The whole mark-up game and freetrade BS excuses for many Canadian retails is very quickly blowing out the window is the favour of the Canadian consumers.
