    Why is the 8 gb new nano 299 cad when it's 249 usd... by conversion, 249 usd is NOT 299 cad.

    That's retarded.

    Well there are other considerations besides just currency exchange rates.
    Such as import taxes might be different, transportation costs might be different, business taxes are different, etc., etc. In the end, Apple Canada is a subsidiary of Apple US so they are probably expected to be profitable on their own. The market in Canada is smaller so Apple's overhead is larger per item.
