This sounds correct. I'm north of the border but bear with me.
$19 USD in CAD is $25.42 and they have never cost that much here. I used to get DOUBLE Big-Mac combos with a milkshake for $17-18 CAD.
Meanwhile,>a bigmac meal is set at $9.32
$9.32 USD in CAD is $12.47, which is about what a combo with a standard soft-drink costs here. If you change the soft-drink to a milkshake, add double beef, it will easily cost $17-18.
I think it's moot though since the point is that it's normal to feel ripped off by McDonald's nowadays. I stopped buying dinners there altogether once I realized that the food does not satiate my hunger one bit; I'd devour the whole meal and immediately feel like ordering another because I'd still be hungry.
