^^^+1, most especially if you get discounted shipping for multiple items with the same seller.

the big distributers have the same ordering system for every hobby shop, doesn't matter if your in the US or Canada, shops that haven't lowered their prices are just charging more, the only real extra cost for Canadian shops is the shipping, plus the duty and brokerage to bring it over the border if you have to pay that, but its not the original cost of the stuff,

most of the shops I know of have adjusted their prices, but I'm not in the GTA so maybe they are different there?
