Yes, Kobo can set the % of discount for non-Agency books, but the publisher sets the price. I believe (no proof at all) that publishers think that because we are so used to seeing the huge difference between US and CA prices on the back of the pBooks we buy, they figure they can just migrate that over to the eBook world--regardless of the exchange rate.
