Don't Patronize the Canadians

The article "Lower Prices and Weak Canadian Buck Trim Shopping in US," Nov. 18, implies that Canadians are finally seeing the light by moving to a more American-style governance of their markets. Such an assessment seems simplistic, if not patronizing. As an expatriate Canadian now living in a "right-to-work" state in the United States, I have seen the effects that each country's regulatory systems have on its respective residents. Canada's unions and regulatory networks must evolve, but they are major f actors in Canada's having been selected by a United Nations agency as the world's best place to live. Neil R.
