Angry Canadian shipping ripoff !!

Live and learn i guess- but i am upset. Went to our local Subaru-Robin dealer via our local rental center to purchase 2 clutch shoes and 1 spring. Big mistake i said i would be willing to pay a bit more phoning the supplier AC Motor Electric the only registered supplier in our area. It had to go thru Edmonton Alberta who is the main supplier-who order from Subaru-Robin America--end result bill $145!! -$35 for clutch parts -$110 shipping!!-it came in 5 days-ihave had carbs sent from Pensylvannia for $15 U.S. postage-taking 10 days--i should have got a quote--from now on ill order from Staton Inc. direct and forget about these guys here. Canadians get ripped from UPS (not to be confused with United States Postal Service) who are incredible.I could not tell the supplier to stuff it because i had the bike at our local Rental center who are not making anything but $45 total labour--can see actual bill.Anyway be aware brothers !!
