Accessing Canadian content at the iTunes Music Store

A friend in the U.S. says he wants to buy Canadian songs through the iTunes Music Store, but any efforts to set up an account immediately brands him American--credit card info, etc.--and cuts access to the Canadian content.

I offered to buy a few songs on his behalf, but he says there are at least a hundred he wants.

I don't want to give anyone access to my Canadian account. Is there a simple way to accommodate this person's request? (Oh, the person inists on PAYING for the songs, so P2P is not an option).

Can he not register to the Canadian site and use Canadian gift cards to fund the account rather than a CC?

I would be happy to do a fund swap with him. I need someone to buy "gift" me some video from the US store (I have an account but no US payment method).

I wouldn't want to give up any access to my account so we'd have to do the gift certificate thing to set up an account.

Are we trading $ value at par now? LOL
that would make things much easier - you could just buy iTunes gift certificates online and swap #s.

I was figuring I would give some exchange value but if you think about it, par makes sense. The tunes cost the same in each countries store. $1 buys you one song. We would both be getting the same value.
