Ludicrous. Why is cheese 50% more expensive in Canada?

Look it the guy. Of course it was for personal consumption, how could they find him guilty? What a world.

Why is cheese more expensive? Most likely taxes to pay for all the social welfare programs.
Governments have to get that money somehow, a little bit higher cost per pizza is one way.
I know that smuggling cigarettes into Canada is / was big money when they raised the taxes on them.
I meet a smuggler in St. Croix in 1990. He used to run booze and cigs into FLA. Buy a bottle of Rum for $1 USD, run it in, sell for $5 USD, bar gets it $4 USD below cost, win for everyone involved except the tax man.
He had a 54 foot boat, loaded with cases of booze. A $4 USD income on each bottle. He had been doing this since 1968.
