Was in one of the big box lumber stores this morning and ran into a fellow modeler who was not happy. He advises that he was just down the road at a book store and looking at the model railroad magazines and thinking of purchasing one when he noticed the price: US $4.99 Canadian $6.99 ?? He is wondering why we in Canada with the value of the Canadian dollar higher ( today $1.05 ) are paying two dollars more ?? He also advised that he noticed last month that there are no subscription slips that are stuffed into the magazines. When he looked into getting a subscription they advised him that he would have to pay the higher Canadian price on the subscription also ??? to have it delivered here in Canada.. Obviously he did not get a subscription or buy the magazines as I am sure many other Canadians have noticed this also and stopped purchasing the magazines. As I do not get neither of the two MR or MRC I did not notice this, I advised him to do as I do, being fortunate to be so close to the USA border we have a US postal box just across the line and I get my Narrow Guage Gazette for the US price sent there. Just renewed my subscription so I obtained US funds here in Canada and forwarded a money order from the US. Just for interest I just e mailed MR as well as MRC and asked about this, will be interested in seeing what their reply is.. Ron..
