Hey goslinga, you're in Canada, your shipping will cost more. Get used to it, and get over it, you're making Canadians look like a bunch of crybabies.
It's only a few extra dollars, I pay it when I order from http://www.redsavina.com, I always receive my seeds in a Global Priority envelope, which has the cost ($9.50) clearly stamped right on it.

I ordered seeds and pepper powder for 22$ including shipping from the Red Savina web site which has a provision for ordering from Canada and selected shipment to Canada. After I paid the money from my VISA I received an email that 5$ more was required for international orders. I requested restitution of my money and received an e-mail saying that the site had explicitly stated that ordering was from the US.
I've been purchasing from redsavina.com for years (and have pepper plant photos to prove it.)
Any company with a Paypal rating over 200 is doing something right, and I've never had any problems with them (and even if I did, all Paypal transactions are insured with their Seller Protection policy!)
