Price increase on April fools day in Canada

I contacted my Pany vendor today, here in Montreal, and he told me that Panasonic up'ed the price of the HMC150 by $400CDN approximately on April 1st. Damn! Is the Canadian dollar that bad these days? Or is this some sort of joke... because of the timing, it sure sounds like it.

Yup, it's happened across the country. And it seems like the other manufacturers are going to follow suit. Buy now if you can.

Because they are still selling cams! And the increase is also relative to the Yen, not necessarily the US dollar.
