Book Pricing In Canada

Less than one hour ago, I went to Chapters to buy a book.  
I found a book I wanted.  
I had the money for the book I found.  

Yet, I returned empty handed.  The reason was the book was over 125% more expensive to buy in Canadian dollars than it was in USD.  

We've not seen that a 125% CAD/USD currency FX rate in many years (it's currently USD$0.96 to CAD$1), so this is simply price-gouging as far as I'm concerned.  

Naturally, I voted with my wallet and left without parting with my money.
