Customs Broker to help them with this process?

I used Pacific Customs Brokers to clear my Columbia 43. Cost $150 IIRC and was more than worth it to avoid any customs hassles. DO NOT go on information you may obtain by calling Canada Customs - if I had listened to them it would have cost me $thousands - fortunately for me an American truck driver knew more about Canada Customs rules than they did.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
