Customs did not charge you that fee.

If your shipment came through Canada Post, then their own brokerage charged you that fee to assess the value of the shipment, classify it with a CBSA importation excise codes charge any GST, PST or duties applicable, perform the paperwork to document the exchange and finally turn over all of those taxes and duties over to the CBSA.

Someone's gotta do the job, and that someone's gotta get paid.
