No.

Odds are if the exchange stays similar to where it is now for a few more years prices here will adjust accordingly. The last adjustment re: the US market was the 1970s, so it's been awhile.

Ouch, that sucks. My only taste of Canada is Vancouver BC. And by all the money I see floating around there I figured everybody was making bank. Vancouver makes Seattle/Bellevue/Redmond look like a trailer park.

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.
WHY DO CANADIANS LIVE LONGER AND HAVE LOWER RATES OF INFANT MORTALITY? WHY DOES HEALTHCARE USE UP A LOWER PERCENTAGE OF GDP IN CANADA COMPARED TO THE US?

WHY DO 50 MILLION AMERICANS HAVE NO HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE?

Yeah .... that's a lot to me. The most I've ever got is 3wks vac plus 5 sick. But I know I'd never be able to take three straight weeks of vacation.

I am on parental leave at the moment. I get a total of 37 consecutive weeks (eight and a half months) at 93% salary. I am really enjoying the time I get to spend at home with the wife and our son. Usually I have five weeks per year.

And your Bush Administration is still spending billions on a war that does not concern them. So don't complain to us why you don't get healthcare...
