The high Canadian dollar actually means it's cheaper for us to buy items. It's more expensive for us to export our goods to other countries. The manufacturing sector of Canada will be hit hard (particularily the car manufacturing), but as far as consumers go, it's cheaper for us to buy items. It will take a little bit of time for bigger ticket items to reduce in price.Originally Posted by DaWgX
I can see your point, but you have to realize, Vancouver is completely different. The reason why your prices and in general, western Canada prices are higher, is because of the all the people moving out there for the work. If everyone is making $30 dollars an hour, and there's limited space for people to live, prices are naturally going to go way up. But this has been going on for a couple years now in western Canada.
