The GST is only 8% (although it may be higher for cars, but I dont think so).
Also I believe (dont quote me :-) )  that a non-Canadian resident can apply
to have the GST refunded.  I know you used to be able to do that with
the Ontario Provincial tax (7%) but the last Ontario budget MAY have cut
that off.
