They charge a duty tax on the retail value of the discs. If you sent a proforma invoice for the product, this wouldn't be a problem. Its part of the requirement for export/import. You can't just ship a product in to a country and not expect a tax. You could have listed it as a birthday present and wrapped it. The person in Canada will have to fight it out with his government dipsticks they put in the customs office. (like trying to explain something to a TSA dipstick at the airport)
