Welcome to the club, in Canada our dollar is worth than the U.S. dollar as well for about 2 years. We pay 20 -30% more for the same product and this descrepancy is why many su demos in Canada quit.Its hard to justify those prices when you dollar is worth more. Why not make the prices in all cattys in u.s. dollars and be done with it which would take care of the difference in price. That much of a jump made it hard for demos to make their quota, as people were not willing to pay that much more for a product. Where i live many just have a u.s post box if they want to still get su product.
