Hi,
I was under the impression that goods made in the US (which PTI products are) are exempt from duty...? You would still have to pay PST/GST/HST, but on your order in the comments section you could ask PTI to state that all goods are made in the US.
I'm lucky enough to live fairly close to the border so I have my goods shipped there. Inconvenient but otherwise shipping is too much! Most of the time they wave me through; the only time I've paid tax was when I had a number of items (not just PTI) with a high dollar value. Even then I only paid GST/PST and no duty (I mentioned that they were US made).
