Right... duty and taxes are real (but rarely apply to stuff that most of us get into Canada from the U.S.), but the "brokerage fee" is entirely a charge by the carrier (courier company), not a government charge.

I too have been charged brokerage fees by UPS and for that reason I will not use them anymore.
I was not charged duty, but the brokerage fee was darn near worth more then the item.
