Thanks for checking LV! Just so you know what happens most times when things are shipped from the US to Canada, using Fedex or UPS. We pretty much automatically get dinged $50 US for "handling and brokerage fees". Sometimes it's $25, or $40. Basically I think they juts make up a number and charge us whatever they want.
US Postal on the other hand, drops it off at customs, customs clears it, hands it over to Canada Post, and it arrives in our mail boxes. Sometimes there is a duty, but if made in the US, there is no duty. We also have to pay our GST tax, which in Alberta is 5%, but we pay that no matter what we buy, so no biggie. I also understand that any of these duties/taxes/handling charges are not something you would pay, or that I would expect you to pay either.
If it helps you calculate shipping, here is my Postal Code T0A-1N0. Thanks again for checking the cost for me.
