This thread feels way familiar, so I'm sorry if I started it once before years ago (but the search engine still sucks).
I'm very curious what kind of problems guys have with shipping stuff to Canada? I see this a lot on various boards and certainly on ebay, to the point where US sellers have even blocked me from bidding because I reside in Canada (yet have a US address for delivery through a friend). I'm certainly aware of some horrendous delays in stuff getting here, thanks to our craptastic system but in all my dealings I've never actually had anything go missing going from here to south and only had some dubious incidents of things going missing from there to here (can you say scammed, yeah, me too).
So what are the huge hassles? Are they real, or are there a bunch of Canadian scam artists ruining it for the rest of us? I know of a couple of guys that have done that in the past but I also know of guys in the US scamming as well. Lack of tracking? What gives, why you hate on Canada mon?
