Gouging Canadian book buyers

One From The Toronto Star says tt is apparent to everyone who buys U.S. publications that the Canadian price represents something close to theft in the era of the 90-cent dollar.
Major booksellers have taken to posting explanations in their stores. Prices are set by publishers according to a 12-month cycle, they say. But if retailers are paying inflated wholesale prices and passing on the hardship to the consumer, they are no less complicit.
