Oh, sure tariff is anywhere from 8.5% for shoes from Australia and New Zealand, to 20% for Italian made boots. Plus GST. Plus PST, if it applies. Plus brokerage, if you get stuck using FedEx or UPS. Plus "Handling Fee".
On the plus side, Holt prices suddenly seem a little less rape after that don't they?
