What are you talking about? eBay doesn't set shipping prices, individual sellers do. For the things I typically shop for on eBay (mostly not models), I've found shipping prices to be very fair. In the rare instance I see shipping that is obviously too high, I'll send a polite message to the seller asking if they can ship it cheaper. Sometimes I'll agree to pay their shipping price with the agreement they will refund me the difference if the actual shipping cost ends up lower.
Maybe your experience is different being in Canada.
