I'm pretty sure they're exporting them because the U.S. is such a good market. I'm sure also their interactions with CRA are probably similar to the bureaucracies imposed by taxing agencies here in the States; sometimes pleasant, sometimes not, but necessary by government fiat nonetheless. This may be part of the reason Escape is now driving trailers into the States for their customers. Easier to do that then recover the paperwork after the fact? I would say assist them as best we can, from what I read on this forum we all may be, if not already, repeat customers!!
