A:  They are all things living in Canada.

Yes, I just sold two paintings to a collector in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.  Of course, being my first sales to Canada I had to figure out the paperwork and import charges required to ship work into this country.  Though there was no duty tax, I still had to pay an entry prep fee, a brokerage goods and service tax (GST), a disbursement fee, a provincial Manitoba sales tax and a customs GST.   Do you get the feeling that the Canadian government doesn’t want to import goods into their country, eh?  Still, I’m thrilled to have a new collector in the land of hockey!
