Wait wait wait wait stop for a second....something just occurred to me.
As it stands right now we already have some retailers that source their product their American suppliers. However we also have retailers who sourced direct from Asian suppliers and even a couple of folks who source from factory.
Aside from low end garbage that I wont even count and the fact that most of the actual American brands are asian rebrands....are you guys picking it up yet?
Whats the point of another middle man? I dont see any point in adding another party to the story. More hands means more money involved most of the time. It would be all fantastic fine and dandy if it were some how possibe for an American company to source airsoft guns direct from their manufactures and then some how magically get them into Canada for an extreme low cost. There was another point I had as well but I cant remeber what it was about...I think it had something to do with donuts.

But in all honesty you are right, things are getting better and right now they are plenty of honest retailers selling quality product for Fair prices.
Maybe not 700% but now a days BNIB M4 CA goes for about 5-600CAD as opposed to 8-900CAD. There is a noticeable difference that's for sure.
