> Re: UPS shipping

Chris et all, this UPS thing is true. I have imported stuff into Canada for many years and I've learned the hard way that to use UPS is a big monetary mistake. They charge big bucks to do the customs brokering which I suppose on multi-million dollar orders for large mega-bucks companies is negligible but for us poor peons bringing in $50 items - NO WAY ! I do the same as Chris when I order something from the USA, I demand they use the postal system or I don't buy the goods, simple as that ! Canada post charges a flat $5 fee to do the customs brokering on any value package ! So I gotta go to my local Post Office to retrieve the parcel - BIG DEAL ! Just my $.02 !

Happy New Year
