Have you had to pay the GST and PST on stuff from Backcountry/Outlet/Dogfunk shipped via UPS World Ease?
I have a US shipping address (yay free US shipping, faster than USPS Priority! UPS truck apparently goes non-stop from SLC to Seattle) which I use and then just bring the stuff over the border myself, and Customs has never made me pay any taxes on anything.
THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

Nope, no taxes.. all included in the shipping option. For me the 3 hour drive to the border and the stress prohibits that being an option... I hate crossing the border I swear I feel guilty everytime like I had 3 lbs of meth stuffed in my butt or something.
I ordered from Empire a few months back even though I'm an Amurrican. I was looking for 08 white Rome 390's and my girl was looking for a Rome Label, and that site was the only one where either of us could find what we were looking for. Prices weren't fantastic, but I was impressed with that, and customer service was cool enough to call me and warn me that the bindings wouldn't fit the board.
Honestly I don't find the duty included shipping option from UPS to be that expensive having done a lot of calculations, when you calculate in the lower price of American goods, then remember that you have to pay taxes on stuff in Canada as well as shipping, even with the exchange rate it comes out cheaper.
