Welcome to ECN forums!! One of Canadian members should jump in and give you their opinion.

In the meantime, Canada covers a lot of acreage, how about a province or area??

We may want to move this to the Canadian area, just because he will have more folks from the Great White North looking at it.

It might make a difference which province you are in. In Sask we add only gst to the entire bill.
