Canadian pricing and supply

I am in the market for an Ortlieb tank bag. Your website, TouratechUSA, and most other vendors show a price of $190US, Touratech Canada it is $282.18CDN. That is over 50% premium for the privilege of buying it in Canada!! I also recently tried to buy a Touratech brake pedal enlarger, only to discover Canada doesn't carry it, and TouratechUSA wouldn't sell it to me, since you have a supplier up here! I eventually had to buy it from A&S BMW, and ship it up from the US.

In these days where it is easy enough on the internet to find the "real" price of an item, and "most" companies are willing to ship to Canada, and I am more than willing to pay for shipping, it seems bad corporate policy to have such pricing discrepancies, and restrictions on who can buy from your internet store.

As for my tank bag, I will have to buy it from Aerostich, and have it shipped up from the USA...again....
