Once again, screwed over by higher prices, higher taxes, duties, and just about everything else under the sun. Thanks again, Walmart (Canada) and every other retailer.

You're talking about different things. taxes/duties [Government] and higher prices [businesses].
So what if Walmart doesn't slash prices in Canada. its a different market and it makes no business sense to cut prices just for the sake of cutting prices. They're in it to make money and satisfy their investors FIRST.

i don't shop at walmart but not because of some higher cause like this one. simply because the stuff at walmart that is cheap is cheap for a reason - it is not good quality.
