    Yeah, this is normal. you probably paid like $40 for their brokerage processing fee and then taxes on the US price.

    Since I live so close to Detroit, I actually pay to have a PO pox there. I saves an unbelievable amount on brokerage, shipping within the US is dirt cheap. As soon as it leaves, they feel free to rape you... I declare it all when I re-enter Canada and even then, you only pay tax because you are acting as the broker.
