I'll freely admit the idea of American competition is an unappealing concept, but that's true for any industry. They have a population of 300 million, we have a population of 34 million. All else being equal, it's always harder for Canadian distributor to compete with their American counterparts.
I say if you are unsatisfied with the performance of Canadian distributors, let competition from other Canadian distributors present and future be the force for change. There are bad Canadian businesses, but there are also GOOD Canadian businesses keeping them in check. Why be in a hurry to welcome in the Americans, when they will just bring in the same mix?
