This thread is retarded. are you complaining about shipping charges or tax and duties?

the max you'll pay shipping through USPS to Alberta is 5% gst plus 7% duty for sports equiptment, so 12%.

If you are looking to avoid paying tax and duty then that's another topic.

UPS charges you the same tax+duty plus brokering fee, which translate to we'll pay for your tax at the border but we'll charge you $50 for the trouble. To avoid that fee you can create a UPS account and inform them of your shipment before it crosses the border so that they can charge your account.
