    Money changers in the temple?

    Too bad you can't just flip over their counting tables.

    So, is the "import charge" really an import duty that goes into the Canadian treasury?

    Seeing it calculated (probably) wrong twice would be reminiscent of Ebay's accuracy with calculating shipping costs.

    Not very.

    When you have to choose between incompetence and dishonesty to explain this sort of horse-hockey, don't discount the stupid factor.
