I would not have minded this fee so much if they would not add it on before the GST & PST. I recently bought a new 27" monitor and was not very pleased to see the $9.25 added on before the final taxes were added up. This is what is called tax on top of tax.

...as if a fee will really divert more ewaste from landfills.

Most ewaste is probably still functional ; recycling is a crock.
