In a perfect world, Xbox LIVE Canada prices would equal to Xbox LIVE US prices. But, as with everything else in Canada, we overpay for everything and get less.

I hate the "Ca-Nuckle Surcharge" too, but am used to it. Boils down to the market I think. Due to our minimal population - buying power is nil compared to the US.

If you want to consider the dollar value then you must take into account the market size. Canada = 35 million people, the USA 350 million people.

They have 10 times the market, which would have a greater affect on the price then the very close dollar.

In a perfect world, yes, all things would be equal but this world is far from perfect.  Video Games aren't the only thing that's more affordable in the U.S., I got used to this fact long before I ever purchased an XBOX.  If you think that Canadians get shafted, why do the good folks down under in Australia pay $120 (their currency is pretty much on par as well) for a new 360 game?  They pay TWICE as much for the same games we enjoy...:-)
