From Axiom's facebook: The Canadian prices are going up by 5%. The Canadian dollar is now 10% lower than the US dollar and looks to be going even lower. Since the vast majority of our raw materials are priced in US dollars it is the Canadian costs that rise.

I guess this doesn't apply to refurb stuff, only the new & factory direct stuff on Canadian purchases

We in the western economies have been ragging on China for unfairly manipulating their currency to remain low to keep them more competitive. Now we're doing it - very hypocritical IMO.

In the long run, it is doubtful if a country can grow a robust economy by devaluing its currency instead of competing with efficiency & enhanced productivity...

I whole heartedly agree with you, and once again it is the general public that suffers at the hands of the politicians trying to make it look like the economy is thriving. All we really have are our resources and this is just a way to wholesale them out to the USA. Someone needs to knee cap harper.

Yup, he should know better as he is an economist by profession; however, since I'm convinced that they are all the same once they get elected despite what they spout off during the campaigns.

There are no viable alternative leaders that I can see out there in either of our countries that will do the right thing...
