Since I started Great Northern Sand & Gravel Company in the late 90's it has always intrigued me that by far the greatest number of orders has been from the U.S.A.
While it should be expected considering the relative size of the economy and the population there compared to that of Canada, the ratio isn't even close to 10:1. That appears to really puzzle Revenue Canada too!! They ask me to explain at the end of each quarter and I can't explain it for the life of me.
Maybe it's the postal rates (it costs more to ship from here to Toronto than to Miami - and it likely passes through Toronto in transit!!) or our infamous GST which adds 7% right off the bat or the unfavourable exchange rate (which is getting better, by the way).
Anyway; to give Canadians a bit of a break and to see if I can get the ratio up where I expected it to be, I've launched the first (hopefully of many)
Dog Days of Summer Canadian Deal
If you order from Canada, you can pay with a common household item all Canajans have stashed away!This deal expires when the Liberals decide who's going to be In Charge of Sheila Copps.
