Not saying that.
When they get new stock with the current dollar drop.
Don't try to sell me something you purchase a year and a half ago when the dollar was on par at today's exchange rate.

Ok so crazy idea.
Lets start manufacturing what we need in Canada.
I'm not trying to be a smart **s but for petes sake.

Am I out to lunch ?
The Dollar by all accounts will not rebound to more than 80 cents by the end of 2017 so the experts say and Free trade has done nothing to help the average Canadian.

Alrigtht! So when the dollar goes the other way you will be willing to buy from them @1.40 exchange versus the 1.25 or so. Sounds good! Let me know you are buying when they follow your direction and the stuff listed at 100 is at 80 elsewhere.

Maybe that makes more sense on smaller items, but overall I dissagree.

If i'm looking at a big ticket item (and I am) and my dealer has one in stock that I have my eye on. I know the price is based on what he payed & he is making his profit as he should. If the dollar is continuing to fall, then I am motivated to make that purchase because I know that when he has to buy new stock, the price will be higher. It's a good oppourtunity for the dealer to say "hey guys, buy now! because price will go up when we order new stock!

If he decides to just up the price on exisiting stock, then I'm simply not going to buy it, there is no incentive unless I really need it. I'll just wait until the dollar goes back up. So does he want to move stock or not?

I'm pretty sure dealers try and time there big orders when the dollar is at least on an up swing, because they are well aware that if they buy when the $ is at .75 and then it goes to .85 they have a problem.

Myself I would be all for a single "north american" currency.

We would have enough oil but wearenotpermitted to ship it to refineries to the east so we sell it to the USA.

Um, not "free trade agreement" but TPP

"Jim Balsillie warns that provisions tucked into the Trans-Pacific Partnership could cost Canada hundreds of billions of dollars and eventually make signing it the worst public policy decision in the country's history."

I used to work in manufacturing...we priced everything in USD because a lot of the customers and suppliers were in the US. The product in our plant would change price with the exchange rate for Canadians just like an imported product. Not sure if that is common practice elsewhere.

Definitely doesn't hurt to try to buy Canadian, but other than food, fuel and booze there isn't much selection.
