Looking for electronic parts or maybe a bunch of other stuff for your projects? Try this digikey site... the good news is that shipping is by Fedex but shipments to Canada do not have brokerage fees.... my last order cost $8 for shipping.

I recently received an order delivered by the brown truck...my $100 item required another $77 in brokerage, duty and taxes...needless to say I did not accept it .

Thanks to Tom for that info. An addendum to Tom's post FYI:

Ideal Supply is a distributor for Hammond Electronics, and //canada.newark.com. I recently purchased a Hammond transformer through them, 1 week delivery, no shipping charges.

The issue with Newark is that Ideal Supply waits until they get enough orders (>$100) before they submit it. To get around that, find a group of people who want to order stuff that sums >$100. But no shipping charges.
