Haha yeah. Imagine how much longer it'll take to ship to the Toronto area. RMA'ing stuff will be quite frustrating. I was quite tempted to cross the border to buffalo on black friday but the exchange rate for USD to CAD is 0.7:1 respectively. Veedubfreak is right, screw this pink fluffy stuff... Our currency always fluctuates it's unbelievable... A couple of months ago it was 1:1

Ontario tax is down to 13% as of January 1st....conservative government has lowered it 2% now.

Also, if you buy online out of province you don't get charged the PST, so if you buy from NCIX.com then they will only charge you the 5% as of January 1st. You will have to pay S&H but compared to local prices even when you factor in the S&H it's cheaper. Buy the case locally tho.

Worddddddd.... I did not know that at all.... That's pretty wicked actually... So does that mean I only have to pay the GST or do I have to pay BC's PST instead of Ontario's? And do you think it'll be better to wait till January to get my parts or buy it on boxing day?

At least we have one good thing coming out of the conservative government.... Aren't they trying to get rid of the government regulating the alcohol prices in ontario as well?
