Dont know if it works but thats how I would deal with it.
Your local post office would have no idea what the CBSA or whatever courier that your using charges.

Thanks in advance
It really depends on Customs. Possibility of them opening up your package for inspection is more likely if you're ordering from overseas. I've gotten packages that looked like it's been fed to a dog. They might slap on a 20% (or more) duty on the estimated value, and of course taxes.

They say USPS right on their site but everything I've had from them was by Speedpost by way of Canada post. Maybe that's mostly meant for US customers to read and feel reassured by.

I recently bought from px-airsoft.com, interesting how the box came with an invoice outside of it that shows deflated prices of the items i bought. i bought nearly 200usd worth of goods, on the invoice they reported a total value of $70usd. along with shipping via hk post (canada post here), the result is no fees

does ehobbyasia do something similar?

you can tell ehobby to rate your package 40$ USD or else you won't pay ..... This applies for USPS , HKpost , china post , ect.... try negociating with the online stores always before buying ... They can screw you over , like airsoftgi with their 20.91$ USD valued package. You have to end up paying 22$ taxe. (for lower than 20$ value are applied for UPS, fedex , purolator,ect....)
