dont forget the exchage rate and the 15% tax ur paying. BTW, canadian pricing of resell value is higher as I sold my S60 T5 there for about 5 grand more than if i were to sell it here (resale price given and judged by the government). But i bought my 330 here in the states becuase i moved here for work and we get more options down here...haha!

Search other threads before you make these comments. We are the 2nd cheapest market in the world after the U.S. Believe it or not, it is a big world out there.

The medical system in Canada is basically "free", public and universal to its citizens which is paid by tax dollars (obviously), so there are usually long line ups to get MRI & CT scans, surgeries, etc. So Canadians who can afford to go to US to get their medical done, they go there because they can just pay and get it done and don't have to wait in line, some Canadians have to wait like 2 years to get an operation in Canada

When you leave the hospital in Canada after treatment, you aren't given a bill to pay, we don't actually know how much it cost the government.

Kind of off topic, but i thought some of our American friends might want to know...

There's no such thing as "in Canada" when it come to healthcare since it's provincial jurisdiction. Not all regions are created equal. By the way, we Albertans pay health care premiums.

Canadians get screwed on price on all goods compared to the U.S, but then again so does the rest of the world.

i LOVE THIS, "When you leave the hospital in Canada after treatment, you aren't given a bill to pay, we don't actually know how much it cost the government."

wHERE DO YOU THINK THE GOVERNMENT GETS ITS MONEY? tHEY DON'T MAKE , GROW OR SELL ANYTHING, ALL THEY DO IS SPEND, your money!!!

i GET CANADIAN tV AND THERE ARE ALWAYS ADS ON THERE FOR MEDICAL VACATIONS, TO GET PROCEDURES DONE THAT YOU HAVE TO WAIT ON IN THE RATIONED SYSTEM IN cANADA.
