Holy shit, massive price-jack on the shipping.
Ordered a L96 a week or two ago (haven't received it yet) and Xpress-post shipping (tracking included) was $10.24 (Obviously it would cost more than this, but I'm not complaining). $40 is definitely unreasonable from QUEBEC to ONTARIO.
I believe the $40 is now a flat fee, which does not change from Quebec to BC. Shipping fees need some revision.
