That's their selling point. Our Canadian dollar is at an all time low sitting at 1$ CAD = 0.69 $ USD.
The economy is based of USD so to import them and to sell at retail is the price they are given.
Also do not forget there are customs fees as well with anything over 250$. So it would be adding another 100-150$ on top of the marker price in USD.
Then also, it is more expensive to buy USD in CAD $$ then it is to buy CAD $$$ in USD. Exchange rates vary. Costs us about 1.68 for every 1$ USD. It's ****ing rape.
