As most canadians know we already pay a premium compared to the states for bikes. This has always been an issue but sometimes we can find deals. In all the wisdom of our gov't we have instituted a tarrif system to charge companies building bikes outside the country to make pricing fair. All I see it doing is screwing the lbs's more and the end use more than that.
This is definately sad news. Looks like I am going to have to find cleaner source in the states to buy my bikes and bike parts. I can already barely afford canadian pricing.
