    That's good to know...

    I mean I love supporting local gun shops, but when the prices they charge in BC (maybe to pay the high rent) and the 12% PST/GST combined, most of the time buying from out of province is cheaper even with shipping added on.

    Yes they do.

    Let us not ever forget that our current government dropped GST from 7% to 5%

    And ended the long gun registry.

    Does anyone know how much is shipping (rifle) to Ontario (Ottawa region in this regard)?

    One only pays the gst and no pst. But will a duty get tacked on the purchase by Canada Post or whatever?

    When I lived in Saskatchewan, and bought something out of province, I was advised that it was up to me to let my home province know what I'd bought, for how much, and then to pay the consumption tax to Sask... E.g., If one purchased a rifle or other appliance in Alberta (pay GST) and brought it to Sask - he or she is expected to pay Sask provincial sales tax to Sask - voluntarily. I rather suspect the rule/law is only very rarely honoured.
    Is it not the case that you're expected to pay local (e.g., home province) taxes for items purchased out of province? (I don't agree with the policy, because you also pay the tax where you bought it - oh - but you're then expected to apply for a refund of the taxes charged at source...)

    How about payin PST On used vehicles just because they transferred titles?
    That has to be against the law, but somehow bc gets away with it
    Attaining a lifestyle nothing short of enviable...essentially, living the dream.
