Unfortunattely for you they all arrive at the same time, which provided CBSA enough evidance to raise a red flag. Spitting up the shipmment into smaller size to avoid these requirement could be seen as an attempt to circomvent the regulation and you could be charge with fraud, you material could be sezeied and/or they could issue an AMPS (administrative monetary penalty).

Not only that you are probably being flagged by the CRA. You obviously intend to turn a profit on these jerseys, and I doubt you intend to pay taxes on that profit.

These are obviously fake jerseys. It is illegal to import unlicensed products.

Good luck on this.....
These are my two favourite posts
