Exactly. And it should be the same vice-versa. In all the years I have bought things online, or had shipped from somewhere outside Canada, I have never been charged Canadian sales tax. Coming over the border with goods, that's a different story...as mentioned by @heisenberg (btw- love the handle! Reference to Walter White by any chance?). This may also apply to physical goods sent to your destination from outside Canada, in which case you would pay duty or the bogus UPS "brokerage fee" which is criminal in itself. I bought three VI's in the last month (downloads), one from US, two from Europe...neither charged me any tax whatsoever.
