Hi Gary,

Although it's of little / no concern to the person initiating the shipment, the 
receiver of anything sent to Canada by way of a commercial carrier is liable 
for for the brokerage fees that said shipper incurs in getting the item across 
the 49th parallel...

I speak from experience.

Years ago I received a $35.00 keyer from Texas via UPS, & the brokerage fee was 
the (then) minimum of $25.00---almost the very same value as the keyer itself!

I have never encountered this hidden levy dealing with Canada Post / the US 
Post Office.

Unfortunately, Canada Post workers are presently on strike here, so I would 
assume that the brokerage fee index is earning a LOT of extra $$$ for the 
commercial carriers right about now...
