For the books I buy, it is generally true. The price difference remains. I really think it depends on what genre you are interested in.
To be fair though, the tax does narrow the price difference.
I've just checked Louise Erdrich's titles. At Kobo, with tax, the titles are between $0.09 and $0.50 cheaper than at Amazon.com. Amazon.ca's prices are in line with Kobo's prices.
