Azure Price Increases In CAD

Randolph West notes that Azure services priced in Canadian dollars will increase by five percent:

Starting December 1, 2018, prices for Azure services in the Canadian dollar will increase by 5 percent to more closely align to Azure pricing in US dollars. Even after this adjustment, customers buying in the Canadian dollar will continue to find Azure offerings highly competitive.

Microsoft periodically assesses its pricing of products and services across the globe to ensure reasonable alignment across regions. This change to Azure prices is an outcome of this assessment.

The first thing that came to mind was a particular joke from the Simpsons.  For those who don’t remember, the Simpsons was a hilarious cartoon for about ten years before it was quietly killed and replaced with something almost but not quite the same, lacking most of the humor.
