Well it's not always that much though. You have to wait for sales, that's all. Last July, I went from Winnipeg to Quebec City to Ottawa to Winnipeg for $600. Right now I can do that from Winnipeg to Vancouver to Victoria to Winnipeg for next summer for the same price...and it isn't even on sale. Entry taxes into the US for flights make up a large portion too, but the fact that US airports basically don't have to pay for the land they use is the man reason. With all the governments near bankruptcy in the US, I don't expect all the cheap consumerism such as the example to be able to continue.
