That's cheap here in Toronto.$50/$60 a tin?
That probably has more to do with it being too complicated to tell people you're from Sackat...Sestact...Catsas....Taskata.......aww, screw it, let's keep going until we hit Alberta.About a hundred years ago Alberta was marketed as “The Next Best West” to try and get homesteaders to settle down here (apparently it worked, Saskatchewan has about 1/3 the population of Alberta),
It's our consolation prize for not getting $400 SVT-40's like you guys. They are $1200+ in the US.That's why when someone remarks about how SP or P&C raised their prices, there is a communal chuckle from Canadian members. Its still like a quarter of the price.
As for the price of pipe tobacco in Canada, I think it ironic that, while the authorities try to snuff out pipe smoking (pun intended), they have legalized the smoking of another popular herbs in pipes.
