They tax the declared value on the Customs declaration. CanadaPost "brokerage" is cheap, usually $5, relative to UPS Ground from the States which is punishing. I've had CanadaPost run stuff through and other times bend me over, usually on pricier items from US sellers on the Big Auction Site. They seem to be back into an "inconsistent" phase now.
