Re: Subscription costs for Europe???
Sory Sanjin, I just noticed you'd commented. I'm a bit slow off the mark sometimes over here. If we want to get into costs of living topics, we should really open up another thread in "The Bar". Suffice to say that although Whisky Magazine is cheaper in North America, by no means is it cheaper to live here. I find that costs are directly related to how far up the globe you live.
In Ontario, below the 49th parallel, where there's a larger population base, costs are lower due to closesness of markets to customers. North of that it's more costly due to transportation costs, or so we're told. It applies to foodstuffs, fuel and generally any form of consumables. Of course if you move west into the next couple of Provinces, the prices drop as their population base is clustered closer to the temperate zone. These are just generalisations as someone will respond, "Edmonton/ Saskatoon/ Whitehorse etc" aren't close to the border and have large population bases." The point is prices in Canada are generally tied to how far north you live from the industrial heartland.
Mind you, with that being said, we don't pay as much in taxes as some European countries. ... Yet anyways. HST is on the horizon.
