The current exchange rate that is used to determine Canadian prices is seriously out of whack.

In general Canadians are paying a 15-20% premium simply for the benefit of purchasing GW merchandise. And who suffers in all of this? Mostly local retailers. Any savvy GW gamer will know that online merchants give a discount but especially savvy gamers will know that discounted US prices mean even bigger savings. A discounted US price can mean a difference of anywhere from 35% – 40% percent off the Canadian list price.
