It is early in the life of this site so now is the time where we cast a wide net and set up boundaries, so this is a good conversation to have.
I asked my question about buying 3rd-party parts because I was worried about paying a $25+ customs fee for bringing hollow plastic across the border. What I decided to do was ask a question about buying these parts IN Canada to avoid these fees. What i did NOT ask for was methods for smuggling Lego across the border.
I see the points of other answers made in that this type of question might be too localized, but what I do not agree with is that these questions are searching for answers that are illegal in nature. My question was not about "circumventing the system", but about sellers of Lego parts within Canada, like if you bought from Amazon.ca instead of Amazon.com.
Neither my question or the answer I accepted are illegal in nature, but it indeed might be too localized and subject to change to be useful. If there is a push against this type of question, I will be happy to delete it
